What you are watching is how the interphones look like in a building entrance. They will vary a lot. Sometimes stuck in the wall, those "porteros electricos" (interphones) may have different shape and color. I find them extremely original. They consist of a grid, in the top part, you will see the following letters: A,B,C, etc and on the left side, you will read the floor numbers: 1,2,3, etc... A person's address usually consists of the street name followed by the floor number and a letter. You just have to connect the number and the letter, and press the button to reach the person :) Les interphones qui peuplent les entrees d'immeubles ici en Argentine. Ces interphones varient enormement. Souvent collés au mur, ou "poses" a l'entree, comme celui-ci, ces "porteros electricos" (interphones) peuvent avoir des formes et couleurs différentes. Je les trouve extrêmement originaux. Une grille occupe la partie centrale. Sur la partie supérieure de l'interphone, vous verrez les lettres suivantes: A,B,C, etc.. et sur le côté gauche, vous lirez les numéros d'étage: 1.2.3. etc. Normalement l'adresse postale comprend le nom de la rue suivi du numéro de l'étage et d'une lettre. Une fois que vous avez relie ces 2 elements sur la grille de l'interphone, vous n'avez plus qu'a sonner :)

Do they have a system to prevent someone from slipping in as another person is bussed in? That has always seemed to be a loop hole in the security.

Thanks all :)

Denton -- There is no system preventing this. But most of the buildings here have a securiy guy at the entrance. Which I find really cool.
