External calls to Auto Answer Intercom

Appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction. Running Asterisk 14.

I am not sure if what I am asking is possible - I have been getting nowhere for days.

Simply, I want a DID to route directly to an extension with intercom enabled. This is simple enough.

Now, how do I get the extension to Auto Answer an external call? This is critical in this situation.
Internal calls are Auto-Answering fine, but this is not what is needed.

Is it configuration?, or can I simply change the DID to be recognised as an internal call somehow?
Or dial a feature code?

I am a moderately experienced user - not advanced. So if you are able to assist, pls keep the explanation relatively simple if possible. Thanks!

Maybe you can achieve this with a Misc Destination, where you define the destination as #80xxx where xxx is the extension desired to autoanswer.
