UNITONE, AN AMERICAN COMPANY, HAS BEEN DESIGNING SMART, FUNCTIONAL AND EASY-TO-USE SECURITY AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS SINCE 1984.
In the early 1980’s, Lucien Bohbot, an electrical engineer and founder of UNITONE, brought the first video intercom to the United States. It was made in Italy and commissioned by the Italian government in the 1970’s, following a rash of deadly kidnappings. Out of that tragedy grew a new realization that “seeing is believing. “For the first time ever, people could see their visitors before letting them into their buildings.
The UNITONE team, with Mr. Bohbot leading the charge, connected with electronic and software engineers from Silicon Valley. Together, they went further, and from that original system created the world’s first computerized video intercom, installed in hundreds of buildings worldwide.
Soon after, UNITONE’S patented product [US Patent #7123142] became the standard-bearer for a new level of security, as it was the first to integrate features like on-screen messaging, quick call back and emergency and personal alarms into one video intercom and alarm system.
UNITONE, while still supporting its original, computer-based system, that serves thousands of residents in the Tri-State area, as well as in Boston, Montreal and New Orleans, has begun a new chapter with its IP 660 Video Intercom System.
The IP 660 is unmatched in its elegance, expandable software offerings and user-friendly interface. UNITONE’S present and past are inextricably bound. The Company is incredibly proud that many of its decades-old systems are still in use today.
