    Question The name for this device...

    Hi all,
    I have already asked this question before but I'd like to get it fixed now! Would you please have a look at the following link and tell me the name used in daily speech? How is it referred to in everyday English? And I'd appreciate it if you gave me some sample sentences used by native speakers (including the name for this device)?

    (I have a feeling door intercom is not a common term!)

    Wisecomm B/W Video Intercom Door Phone VDP1300

    Thanks a lot.

    I don't know how common they are in everyday life. But the term "intercom" is the correct one.

    Check the intercom to see who's at the door.

    When you get to my building buzz me on the intercom and I'll come down.
