Algo IP Paging Webinar Q&A

Q: Can the video be streamed to a VMS or NVR? (Referring to the Algo8306 SIP Multimedia Intercom)

A: No, this has been done before but this is not currently supported.

Q: What product would I use as a ring alert for my Polycom (Poly) phones?

A: If you wanted to put a speaker in a ring group that could require more licensing but we do have a product the Algo 2506 Ring Detector it’s a small cord that has an RJ connection on it and that would connect to the headset jack of the VVX phone. Then there are 2 terminal screws you can wire to any of the Algo 818x speakers or strobes and it will trigger that ring event. By doing so will play an audio or visual alert. You can put multiple units on the network then use multicast to broadcast that event.
