Cisco IP 8800 Key Expansion Module Key Programming

With the Cisco 8880 Expansion Module you are able to program keys to show names of other phone users.

The key settings can be found in the web interface of the phone on the “Unit1-3” tabs depending on how many extension modules you have.

 

The code to display a name on the extension module is “fnc=blf+cp;sub=5070@$PROXY;ext=5070@$PROXY;nme=Name”.

The “;nme=Name” is where you can type the text you want to appear on the extension module.

The “;sub=5070” and “;ext=5070” is where the extension number must go.

 

Distinctive ringing with Cisco phones

Both the older Cisco SPA range and the new CP range support distinctive ringing through the use of Alert-Info SIP headers.

The names to use can be found in the web interface for both phone types.  In the web interface, the settings are in the Voice section, phone tab, Ringtone heading.

On CP phones:

On SPA phones:

The important part for Alert-Info is the name part after “n=”.  The Alert-Info header must look like these examples:

Alert-Info:Mellow

Alert-Info:Simple-2

So simply put the name of the ringtone in the header and nothing else.  This is different to most phones (and actually not as specified in the SIP RFC) as they need to have a dummy URI inside them.

As an example, if you wanted to add this header in Asterisk, use the SIPAddHeader application:

SIPAddHeader(“Alert-Info:Mellow”)

How to make a 2N call a phone when the tamper switch is triggered

Did you know you can make your 2N tamper switch call a phone when it is triggered?

If you have a 2N tamper switch and want to know how to install it into your Verso, please click this link:

2N’s Helios IP Verso Tamper Switch

After the installation of the tamper switch you will need to configure it. Go on the 2N web-interface and go to Services (Purple tile) > Automation, from this page you will need to tick the box “Function Enabled” and fill in the “Object Type” and “Parameters” as seen below:

Please note: to change “Number=5070; Event=1″ to the extension you want the 2N to call when the tamper switch is triggered.After you have filled these automation in you can run a test by taking the metal plate of the 2N and seeing if your phone rings as seen in the video below:

In addition to this you could have a second Event that sends an email to you when motion is detected. This would be for extra security purposes and would capture a picture of who ever triggered the tamper switch. If you want to know how to do this click the link below:
