Residential: Typically you have a master station that is either an actual working unit somewhere in the home or a hub tucked away in a structured wiring enclosure that interacts with sub-stations to tie everything together. You can have almost as many zones as you would like in a system, but the typical is between 6 and 12 zones. Entry level system start as an "all call" system where you page the entire system and upon connection with another sub-station (the person you trying to reach answers) you have a "direct connection with that party. Most come with a baby monitoring feature. Moving up to a mid-level or high end model, you have options of LCD touch screen to select who you want contact as well as audio and video integration options.
Commercial: Most commercial facilities have intercom built-in their current telephone systems. Most of those systems have the ability to have external paging options to page outside areas or other locations. Just like the residential, commercial intercom systems on the commercial level have integration with audio, video, even securities (intrusion, access control, and CCTV).
