What our Customers say

We've experienced a ton of improved efficiencies and response times due to the installation. Our customer service response has improved dramatically. They integrate with all of our other systems, and without them it would be hard for us to manage what we do. It makes our job and having contact with the public that much easier.- Dan Birbeck, Dallas County Hospital District Police Department
In the planning phase of the WEBS Contact installation we made a list of some of the most common situations in which you would need to broadcast a message. Even though some of our prerecorded messages are unlikely, we can rest easy knowing we have a prerecorded response to a majority of situations. The entire process was very simple for us and the learning curve was really small.- Shawn Woods, University of the Sciences
They’ve always functioned correctly and don’t require any maintenance. We test the units periodically and we never have problems. I’ve seen other competitor’s units fail after one or two storms. These Talkaphone towers have been working without problems for six years strong- Don Gussler, Emeryville Marina Harbor Master
We perform fire and earthquake drills. We wanted a system that could help us better organize our response and communication with the community. These units have done just that.- Nathan Moore, Chabot College
We wanted to install a solution which we knew would operate without error, each and every time.- Adam Adcock, Carolinas HealthCare System

These intercoms earned the company an ‘essential industry’ classification, when World War II came in 1941. Intercoms grew to become a core product and today — more than 80 years later — the company’s business model is as a well-known designer and manufacturer of security and life safety communication products and solutions for customers in 40 countries around the globe… Read more at Security Today Read more →
