It is highly suggested by security experts to look for the two way audio feature in all your security cameras. Wondering why?


A two way audio camera comes with many benefits. Let’s explore them in detail.

Instruct delivery person

If your outdoor security camera has the two-way talk feature, you can use the same to instruct a delivery person to place your order safely. In case you are not home, you can ask the delivery person to hand over your parcel to the next-door neighbour or keep it near your home in a secured space.

Thwart intruders

A two way audio camera can also be used to scare away any uninvited suspicious strangers. A loud alarming sound from the camera is sure to scare any intruder away from your home, keeping it safe. You can also send the recorded version of the feed to the concerned authorities for legal intervention.

The two-way talk feature ideally should be present in all indoor cameras. Airtel Xsafe indoor security cameras are equipped with a two-way talk feature.
