Time was when a young Harvey Keitel’s call would be welcomed sight unseen but today the innocence is gone – we need to know before we open the door.

The headline refers to a movie of the same name where Harvey Keitel starred.

Panasonic have released a wireless video intercom system with both a wall 5.2” LCD mounted main monitor and a new Wireless 1.5” LCD monitor handset that you can take to other rooms up to 100m away.

The unit also has a picture recording function – good for when you are not at home - and a voice changer function so a female can sound like a man when answering. It also supports remote door unlocking (2 wires required for the monitor and door lock – maximum 50m run).

The unit is scalable from just one home/terrace up to 20 dwelling multiple apartment blocks.

It will be a real boon to those who work from home and need to answer the door several times a day.
