Home intercom, door answering system which wont work

I have just moved into a house which has a basic intercom system built into the wiring of the house. unfortunately it seems to be pretty dead.i have opened up the phone handset inside the house and it all looks pretty well connected. I opened up the outside intercom and it looks fine though there did seem to be two loose (ish) wires hanging free. I also tracked the wiring into the house, and it seems to have its on control box, beside the mains electric box. do you know any basic fixes for this type of system?

    This should be a low voltage system, much like a door bell uses. If the wiring running from the control box to the intercoms looks like speaker wire, it is a low voltage system. Check to see if you have power to the control box. Then using a simple electrical tester, check to see if you have power in the control box, and also at the intercoms. If this appears to be okay, then look for places where the wires may be touching (shorting) inside the connection areas. Also look for frayed or smashed wires. Replace if necessary. If all these things look good, talk to a residential electrician, they install many of these devices, and would be familiar with the interworkings.

    This is a really great question. I've never dealt much with door systems in Chicago, before. I'd love to learn more about them and how they work. Nothing is worse when you get a problem llike this.

We have DMC-10RS intercom system in our house. All them squeal when the power source is on. I had to unplug the hub to make them quiet. I cked the power supply and its putting out 12.2V,ok. Any ideas what...


Check power supply for proper voltage of 12 volts DC.
-If there are multiple Hubs, check voltage on all Hubs
If the voltage is not 12V, try replacing the power supply
226888 Power Supply
-If the voltage is ok, disconnect 1 room station at a time. If there a multiple Hubs, disconnect the last Hub. As each room station and/or door station is removed, have someone else listen to see if the squeal goes away. There is a chance that one bad room or door station is causing the issue.
oIf the squealing stops, add in the previous stations that had been disconnected. If all stations other than that room station are ok, do not hook up that station. There are no replacement stations available for this system. If the squealing continues with any of the stations hooked up, there is a bad HUB. DMC-10 Hubs are NLA and cannot be repaired. The best option for a replacement is the I2000 Kit

Yes> You can go to M&S's website and contact them directly or try to match up that particular model and order a replacement. If its more than 5 years old, chances are you may have to buy an entire new system kit, (they like to changes things up up every so often like everyone else). As far as the problem your having goes, very common! The head- main unit is fried and non repairable as far as willing participants go... Also check EBAY. I have had tons of luck finding replacement parts of all types there. Hope this helps

How to use the intercom system


  • Check your telephone to see if it has an intercom feature. Many wireless phones that come with multiple units allow you to temporarily turn one unit into an intercom to contact other units attached to the same wireless phone system. Depending on the model, you can contact all the other phones at once, or a single specific phone, by pushing the intercom button and entering the other mode. To put the phone back into regular mode, all you have to do is switch off the intercom option.

  • Contact your telephone provider. Some telephone service providers allow landline phones to call themselves, which enables the phone to function as an improvised intercom. You would simply pick up the phone, dial and then close the connection. Once the phone is answered elsewhere in the house, you will have established a line to another phone and you can speak normally on it. This has largely been eliminated due to lack of need as technology advances, but it may still be an option with some providers.

  • Purchase and install an intercom system that will work through an existing phone line. Many of these products, some of which are produced by Panasonic, operate as a halfway point between a traditional intercom system and a phone line. The exterior intercom links directly to the phone line, and you can pick up the phone and talk through the intercom unit outside once the system is properly set up

    Merging 2 siemens gigaset 4215 systems (one base with 2 phones + 2 phones)


    If you're trying to get 5 handsets to work with one base, it won't work. The 4215 can only handle 4 handsets, the base handset plus 3.

    When I had to replace the base of my 4 handset system, the base handset still worked. Therefore I had an extra handset which couldn't be used. So I decided to buy another base. Now I have 6 handsets which can be grouped 4,2 or 3,3.
