About Teleportivity

Teleportivity is an Australian-based company offering cloud-based communication systems. Their flagship product is the QR video intercom, which says goodbye to hardware altogether and replaces it with a fixed QR code.

With that said, Teleportivity offers a hardware option in the form of its FONECOM Outdoor Display.

In addition to Teleportivity’s intercom systems, their other products include:

  • Video concierge. Employ remote front desk staff who can assist guests, customers, or other employees by directing them as needed. Concierges can manage calls, upload content, answer requests from different locations, and grant access remotely without ever setting foot on the property.
  • Help-as-a-service. Manage customer service requests remotely using your own staff or Teleportivity’s white-labeled staff.


How does Teleportivity work?

Teleportivity’s QR code intercom works by displaying a QR code at the main entryway of your property for visitors to scan. When visitors scan the code with their phone’s camera, it will take them to a website where they’ll enter the unit number they’re visiting.

Then, the system notifies the tenant of the visitor. Once the tenant answers, they can see and speak with the guest via a two-way video call. Finally, the tenant can grant the visitor access remotely.

For commercial properties, the intercom works similarly, but after scanning the QR code, the visitor is presented with a directory of departments they may request access from, such as the receptionist or security.

Meanwhile, the FONECOM Outdoor Display is Teleportivity’s hardware solution for those who aren’t committed to an intercom with QR codes. The outdoor display works similarly to the QR code solution, but visitors don’t use their phones. Instead, they use the touchscreen and built-in camera to see and speak with the tenant before they’re let inside.

  • QR codes may ask to unlock permissions on user smartphones, such as the camera or photo library, causing friction.
  • A smartphone might be required to request access when there isn’t an outdoor panel, and there might be no alternative credentials for users whose smartphones are lost or run out of battery.
  • Additional access methods could be required for employees and tenants.
  • There appears to be no audit log of guest entries for additional security and safety.
  • May not act as a comprehensive visitor management solution.

  • Passersby might save the link from the QR code — effectively taking the property directory with them — and may cause nuisance by calling random tenants remotely.


Should you get the Teleportivity QR code intercom?

Teleportivity offers a promising solution for enhancing customer service and guest experience through the utilization of remote agents. One of its standout products is the QR video intercom system, which boasts simplicity and innovation. Above all, the most appealing aspect is the lack of hardware installation requirements, making it particularly advantageous for small businesses and multi-unit properties.

However, for medium- to large-scale properties, Teleportivity may fall short of expectations. While the QR video intercom is user-friendly, it may lack robust security features, such as a detailed entry log. Additionally, the system may require other access methods for employees or tenants, which could be viewed as an inconvenience.

The best Teleportivity alternative is ButterflyMX.

ButterflyMX is a cloud-based access control company that offers a modern video intercom solution. With more than 10,000 installations, ButterflyMX enables tenants to access properties using their smartphones and let in their guests remotely.

ButterflyMX video intercom features

  • Mobile app. The ButterflyMX mobile app is highly-rated and used by tenants to access the property.

The mobile app also lets property managers edit permissions, review entry logs, and more.
  • 156° wide-angle camera. The built-in camera fully captures the entirety of your main entryway. That way, residents can easily see who is requesting access, and the system can capture a clear date- and time-stamped photo of people entering.
  • IP65 rating. No matter the climate, ButterflyMX is built to withstand the elements. Its IP65-rated casing prevents water and dust from entering, and it can withstand temperatures as extreme as -40°F and 140°F.
  • Built-in directory. The built-in directory makes it easy and fast for guests or delivery drivers to request access to the property. Guests can search via unit number or name when requesting entry.
  • Audit log. Review time- and date-stamped photos of every door entry that used ButterflyMX. As a result, you can better react to potential security breaches or safety risks.
  • Cloud-based. Reduce installation costs and time by not having to install wiring throughout the property. Instead, the ButterflyMX video intercom only requires a few simple wired connections to get up and running.
