Unboxing The Algo 8180 SIP Audio Alerter (G2)

March 22, 2019 by Steve Lopian

This day and age, it seems like every business is looking for IP paging. Some are looking to upgrade their old analog paging systems, and others are looking to start fresh. Whether it’s a small business with a warehouse or a large enterprise with multiple floors, IP paging is becoming a ‘must have’ for everyone.

But how difficult is it to install and operate IP paging? A lot of people will tell you that it is extremely complicated and expensive, but much like a lot of other stories you hear in the VoIP world, it’s just not true anymore.

If you are looking for something cost effective and easy to install, then I would be doing a disservice by not recommending Algo for all of your IP paging needs.

Algo has a wide-range of IP paging, emergency alerting, and security products that can cover every area of your business.  Algo even offers paging adapters so you can seamlessly integrate your existing analog system to a new and efficient IP system!

But for the sake of this blog, I wanted to focus on one particular Algo product. The Algo 8180 (G2) SIP Audio Alerter is a perfectly priced unit that can serve multiple purposes!  This thing offers voice paging, multicast or broadcast capabilities, and even has preloaded ringtones for the perfect alerting system!

I have looked around, and I can tell you that I don’t think there is anything out there that can match the simplicity of this device and also pack as many features that it offers.  For a full list of features check out the Algo 8180 (G2) here!

By this point, if you are in the market for IP paging, you should only have 2 questions left! “What’s in the box?” And “How can I see it in action?”  The good news is I have answers for both!

Just take a look at the video above for a detailed unboxing and product test right in our very own VoIP lab! We hooked the 8180 (G2) up to a Poly VVX 600 to show you just how simple it is to operate once you have it connected to your VoIP network!

So, enjoy the video and if Algo is not on your list of potential IP paging solutions for your business, I’m sure it will be now, and you can thank me later!

Are you currently using the Algo 8180 (G2) or other Algo products? How are you enjoying them? Let us know in the comments!
