Your ButterflyMX video intercom is often the very first thing a visitor or delivery person sees when they arrive at your property. This provides a unique opportunity to use your video intercom as a form of signage at the front of your building – if there’s anything you’d like a visitor or delivery person to know before entering your property, you can tell them here. This is called an inactivity message, and it can be added or changed at any time in the ButterflyMX OS.
