We are pleased to announce the arrival of the new Yealink T23GN mid range desk phone. This new model is in addition to and builds on the highly popular and successful T22PN. However, whilst it is priced the same as the T22PN the T23GN offers the following additional features:

  • Larger phonebook increased from 300 to 1000 entries
  • Dual Coloured (red & green) LED buttons for more effective BLF
  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports

The T23GN has been fully tested by our technical team and we can confirm that it has all the same auto provisioning capabilities of the T22PN.

The new snom D715 IP phone is now in stock and available at ProVu. This new model replaces the previously popular 715 and has all the same features and auto provisioning capabilities of its predecessor.

The only significant change is to the colour of plastic which is now black. The D715 is in the same form as snom's 710 but the D715 has the advantage of dual Gigabit Ethernet ports for faster data throughput and a USB port for connecting either a USB headset, bluetooth headset, WiFi dongle or the D7 expansion module.

22/12/2014: Jingle Doorbells

Here in the sales office, we were very impressed by the technical office's tree and thought we'd get into the festive spirit ourselves. By one-upping them!

Using a 2N Netspeaker we hooked up our doorbell so that whenever someone presses it, Jingle Bells plays! Along with a blue strobe light being activated.


This is, of course, far from the limit of what a NetSpeaker can do. If you want to know more about it, feel free to give our friendly (and very festive) sales team a call!

Merry Christmas from the ProVu sales team!

Here in the ProVu technical office things are starting to get festive.

Our trusty old Christmas tree has gone up.

With so much in the news this year about the boom we are going to see in IoT & M2M, we thought we'd better smart-enable our Christmas tree to keep up with the times.

I'd been testing the 2n Smartcom Pro recently, so I used that:

This allows me to convert non-IP devices (and our old Christmas tree is definitely not an IP device) into IP-enabled devices I can access over my network.

To actually control the tree's lights, I used a Zigbee power switch since the Smartcom Pro has a Zigbee interface (amongst others):

This set up allows me to use "AT" style commands over a telnet connection from any computer on our network to the Smartcom to turn the Christmas tree lights off and on. That works OK but is rather cumbersome so to finish this off I wrote a quick Python script which connects to the Smartcom and allows me to type in simple commands to control our tree.

Here is a short video of it in action:

What's the point you might ask? Well there isn't a great deal of point to this other than a bit of fun. However, one of the biggest causes of fires around Christmas time is tree lights being left on unattended (so I'm lead to believe) so ensuring these are automatically turned off when everyone has left the office is a good idea!

We are delighted to announce that we have made some adjustments to the snom handset pricing in line with snom's newly issued price list. In most cases there have been some small reductions, but in the case of the snom 320 there has been a significant reduction of nearly 30.00.

With a new suggested retail price of just 85.00 the snom 320 is now looking extremely competitive and with a well established proven track record for quality and reliability we feel sure this will breathe new life in to this excellent handset.
