I'm not interested in whole house audio, just intercom and it seems like voice announcement integration with the security / automation system is a natural fit. Are there any intercom systems that are designed with such provisions (no hacks)?
I've seen some posts about hacking the OnQ intercom to integrate with Elk. The hacking looks doable for me, but its still a hack.
In an old thread, there was discussion of using russound ISK2 & the ISSP speaker for intercom and security system announcments. I think the idea is to connect the ISSP speaker through the ISK2 speaker relay to the ELK (or a zone amp / audio distribution panel connected to the ELK instead of a music source.) Has anyone had any sucess with this?
