  • Intercom
    A logical combination of Intercom and BeFREE03 makes a very compact voice communication module with ethernet connection.
  • Handset
    Because of the modular design, the BeFREE can be combined with one or two USB Handsets on the left or right side.
  • Intercom and Handset. The handset can be either:
    • USB; Besides the Handsefree audio, this offers an extra, independent, voice channel
    • Analog Switching; There is one audio (voice) channel that switches automatically from Handsfree to Handset when lifting the Handset.
