The intercoms use radio waves for transmission therefore they are not suitable for too large a distance between two spaces. Wireless systems are suited for those buildings where there is a need for a simple system where space is comparatively smaller so that radio wave signals can be received.
As far as wired solutions are concerned, they are more reliable over long distances, but it is more expensive because of the cost of laying down wires and other items. However, they are the best option for one button, clear communication over longer distances.
