The Intercall Addressable Cell Call System is a complete solution designed to meet the requirements of the most recent prison service specifications. All units feature stainless steel front panels with vandal resistant buttons and non-removable LED indicators. Equipment is supplied with stainless steel tamper resistant fixings to prevent unauthorised access.

Working alongside the UK Prison Construction Unit, Intercall have developed the “Intercall Cell Call System” designed to fully comply with all prison service specifications. The system has been installed into many Prisons, Secure Units and Young Offenders Institutes, who use and rely on the system 24 hours a day.

The Cell Call system includes historical system event recording, with all system activity logged, together with the date and time. All cell call and reset plates are constructed from stainless steel and feature tamper resistant fixings. In-cell plates are tamper-monitored to prevent unauthorised access or tampering and the system is continuously monitored for cable faults, system operation and power failure. There is a wide range of cell and reset plates available to include cell light switching, cell power switching and officer emergency call generation.

Upgrading traditional systems to the new Cell Call standard is straightforward, since the Corridor Reset units are fully compatible with traditional in-cell units. Indeed, many establishments have upgraded to the Intercall Cell Call system by simply replacing the Corridor Reset Unit – without requiring access within the cells.
