IR102C Apt. Station One Talk/Listen Button
The Alpha Communications® / TekTone IR102C Apartment Station combines modern styling with ease of operation to provide natural, clear voice communication and positive door release operation.The tenant depresses one button to Talk and releases the same button to Listen. This eliminates the necessity of pressing separate buttons for TALK and LISTEN operations.

The station automatically shuts off a few seconds after conversation is completed or as soon as the door button is pressed. A built-in 'No-Fault' door opener circuit offers two (2) advantages; the DOOR button cannot be activated, until the TALK circuit is activated and if a tenant tries to constantly activate the DOOR circuit, the system will shut it off and still allow the rest of the stations to function properly. 

The IR102C is not a voice/noise activated intercom station and does not require a complex and costly amplifier.
