Most intercoms connect to each other using category cable. Some use the LAN to communicate (IP intercoms), and some do not.
Not everything using category cable is on a LAN. It's a multipurpose cable.
Google 'IP intercom' if you want them to communicate with each other over your home network. Google 'intercom' if you do not.
OnQ makes some nice looking intercoms that connect to each other with category cable, but are not networked on the home LAN.
If you have category cables run to your intercom locations, you can use either IP or non-IP intercoms, since both (usually) use category cable.
