Default Broadband and Intercom systems

Morning all

My parents live in an apartment block which has an intercom system which
appears to work via there telephone. In other words when someone rings there
door bell their telephone rings, they can then let them in etc

What would happen when they have Broadband installed and left it as " always
on" would the intercom still work, or would every time someone buzzed them
the connection would be lost

any ideas gratefully recvd

Depends, it could be part of an internal system or it could be not. I
couldn't tell you without looking. Best bet would be to ask the
landlord\building manager as to what is installed. Alternatively, more
details please.

Normally door-entry intercoms use telephone handsets but are quite
separate from PSTN telephones.

They only have the one telephone, when it rings they cant tell if its
someone at the door or an ordinary telephone call

Ring wire spliced to link to the doorbell?
Easy enough to set up, and I wouldn't have expected it to get in the way
of an ADSL installation.

I was thinking if it was a private apartment it could have a PABX
installed, which would mean that ADSL would be a bit non-worky! That's
the only way I've seen door intercoms and phones combined.
