Greyfox Systems Revolutionizes residential intercoms with the introduction of their Cat5 Intercom at CEDIA 2003

Pittsburgh, PA - September 5, 2003 - Greyfox Systems is revolutionizing residential intercoms with the release of their Cat5 -based Intercom at the 2003 CEDIA Show in Indianapolis this week. Anchored by the new Greyfox Intercom Module, installers can now reduce their installation time and costs through using less expensive and easier to install CAT5 cabling that runs back to the structured wiring enclosure.
As a leading player in the structured wiring industry, Greyfox's unique insight into the world of residential technology allowed them to take a fresh approach to intercoms. Gone are the days of the large, intrusive main unit in the kitchen or family room. The Greyfox Intercom offers the next generation of home communications systems -a modern look that fits in a decorator opening, easy to wire with Cat5, and affordable for every home.

The Greyfox Intercom system supports up to 12 indoor locations, 2 outdoor locations and one main location. The unique design features hands free communication, monitor function at multiple stations simultaneously, and mute at every station. Optional accessories include an electronic chime and LCD color screen for camera monitoring.

"The Greyfox Intercom is a natural fit with structured wiring in the home", says Dan Tarkoff, General Manager of Greyfox Systems. "Our Intercom wires back to the Greyfox structured wiring enclosure to interface with other sub -systems within the home - like phone, audio & camera - offering a truly integrated home network. "

To enhance this integration, Greyfox has released an Audio Interrupt Module that overrides music playing on speakers throughout the home when intercom is activated/paging. Also released with the Greyfox Intercom is a cutting edge 4" LCD color screen from that interfaces with Greyfox's Cat5 Camera system to create a video phone at the front door. Rounding out the offering is a Telephone Interface Module that will bridge the phone, intercom and automation systems due out 4th Quarter 2003.
