Let me be the first in this topic!

With the advances in VoIP technology, I have wondered why nobody has come out with a wired/wireless Ethernet intercom system. Think about it -- door stations, room stations, even a computer interface for remote intercom access, maybe make it work with Skype or something.

Excellent idea, but since I have Vonage, I'd like to have the ability to plug in the wireless intercom station to my phone adapter if I'm not home.

Wireless is great for me, but I'm not sure if it's small to fit in a doorframe outdoor when it comes to living in my apartment.

Someone has. CyberData and Digital Acoustics both have VoIP intercom systems and door phones and have for quite some time. CyberData is SIP based and can integrate with various SIP PBX systems.
