How do I pinpoint a model that is right for my needs? 

Use the Pick-a-system tool and answer all questions until the final determination step. Or give us a call at 800-766-0266. We love discussing projects.

How large is the Unit physically? Can I install it in my kitchen, my living room, in my bedroom or in my Structured Wiring Box?

Dimensions of the Ennovah Controller: W 11 in x H 12 in x D 3.5 in. Primarily for installation in structured wiring closet or utility room, near the Patch Panel, or at whichever spot where the telco block is located.

Do I have to know about cabling to install it?

If your home phone wiring is originally completed with 4 wires throughout as in the US, you don't need to know anything about cabling to install the Ennovah Controller for room intercom. You will use the provided Spare Wire Test Kit to test the integrity of your phone wires and then install the System in the Plug-in mode: an all plug&play operation. You will use special mini in-line couplers to plug in the extension phones to the phone jacks.

But if you are going to use the Controller with dedicated wall Speakers for user devices, then you will need to do some tooling at the wall Speaker spots in an existing home. We recommend to place the wall Speakers right along the line above the existing phone jack in a room, and funnel the connecting wire between the two thru the wall.

How much tooling will I have to do with this Controller?

You will need to fix the Controller on the wall and tie it to the phone line. If you install it in the Plug-in mode, there is no tooling to do for the connection to the line. If you install it in the Intercept mode, you will need to split the line at the telco block and tie both ends of the split to the Controller. A detached quick installation guide expeditiously helps the installer make a determination on the install mode to select and complete the installation.
