IS204 'Universal' 4-wire Apartment Intercom Station

The Alpha Communications® IS204 is a universal 4-wire apartment intercom station which combines modern styling with ease of operation to provide natural, clear voice communication and positive door release operation. The white, high-impact, ABS plastic faceplate blends with any decor. The advanced circuitry and versatility permits use in large or small buildings, with one or several entrances.

This unit replaces at least 2 models of existing intercom stations! With the addition of the optional model AP543 adapter plate, you can now replace 4 existing stations.
