Wireless intercom

I'm looking for a wireless (and hopefully battery powered) intercom that will support 3 or 4 stations which is somewhat secure. I don't need STU-III like security but I don't want something that anyone within range can listen to.
My house is about 150 ft long and there is a lot of structural steel in it so range may be an issue. (I've had to install a repeater to get 802.11g access throughout but that solved the problem.)
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Uhhh, intercom + security? Sorry, it doesn't seem to make sense. You set the level and anyone within range hears what sounds it put out. Something must be missing?

Some cordless phone systems are extensive in what they offer , you buy a base with handset and buy extra handsets

Right. I had a two-line Motorola cordless phone about eight years ago that scrambled the transmission between handset and base. Don't recall if it also scrambled the intercom transmission. Worth looking into.
Anyway, how close to other houses is this 150' long house? Usually a house that large isn't that close to its neighbors, and as you found out with the wireless network, the transmission range is limited.

Not too close to neighbors but frequently numerous boats moored within 100 to 200 ft.
I'll call Motorola and see what they have.

The Territorial Sea (0 to 12 Nautical Miles) Under international law, every coastal nation has sovereignty over the air space, water column, seabed, and subsoil of its territorial sea, subject to certain rights of passage for foreign vessels and, in more limited circumstances, foreign aircraft. For almost two hundred years, beginning with an assertion by Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson in 1793, the United States claimed a territorial sea out to 3 miles. In 1988, President Reagan proclaimed a 12-mile territorial sea for the United States, consistent with provisions in the LOS Convention. The proclamation extended the territorial sea only for purposes of international law, explicitly stating that there was no intention to alter domestic law.
That takes care of the too-close boaters.
There are other benefits. You can sell cigarettes without paying taxes. You can open up your own casino. You won't know what to do with all the money.
When you finish, please contact me for my Cayman Island bank account number so you can send me my $63 million dollar consulting fee. That'll probably be less than your kids' allowances, so count yourself lucky.

Did you hear about the woman who was plotting to kill her husband?
She was using a cordless phone and neighbor's heard her on the baby monitor. She's in jail now, and so is her boyfriend.
