I would appreciate your advice in order to accomplish the following scenario;
I am about to integrate an Akuvox R20a Door Phone into our FreePBX base PBX system. This type of door phone registers as a regular extension and allows for configuring an extension to call when the door button is pressed. I’ve set it up with a ring group, tested it, works like a charm.
However, when we are present and the door button is pressed, I’d like to play an announcement first and then transfer the call to a ring group. When we are not present, I’d like to play a different announcement and then transfer to call to an alternative destination.
How do you guys advice to configure such a scenario?
Thanks in advance,
Branching call flow based on a condition is what Dynamic Routes does. How does the system know if anyone is present or not?
Not by any other means than a Call Flow Control for instance.
Misc application -> CF ctrl -> Announcement -> etc…
Program the phone to dial the misc app.
Excellent Lorne, thank you very much! I’ll have a look at it.
you could also likely skip the ring group.
have the doorphone call a Queue
have the queue play a pre-call announcement
then have it ringall for the members of the queue.
this would also allow your people to sign in/out of the door queue if you wanted to, so that:
a) a manager can “Cover” the door during their employee’s lunch
b) vacation? your phone doesn’t ring every time the doorbell gets pressed.
