Intercom - Make BEEP louder - imfloridaguy - 11-18-2014 07:51 PM

Many of my clients use the phone to phone intercom feature. Generally this works very well.

The problem with it is that the 'beep' that notifies the receiving caller of the open microphone is not loud enough.
Is it possible to make the beep louder and of a longer duration? Or perhaps a different tone?
In a noisy environment it can be hard to hear.

Thanks in advance.

Agreed! I asked for this last year already. I would like to be able to change the ringtone and the volume. This is possible for regular phone calls, but not for intercom....
Unless you use a custom firmware. @Tsukraw might see this and offer you some help. He's helped my company with this.

Hi Imfloridaguy/engine411,

You can change the tone in Settings-> Tones-> Auto answer, the format can be found in autoprovision guide.

Thank you.
I found the section in the guide regarding this.
'Select Country' is set to Custom, so I am able to change the Auto Answer tone.
However, I don't know what the default value is. Can you answer this?

voice.tone.autoanswer = ????

If I know the default, I can alter from there and experiment with different settings.
My goal is to have this draw more attention to the phone during the 'beep'.

For the benefit of others, here's the section of the admin guide regarding tone:

It customizes the dial tone when the parameter "" is set to Custom.

tonelist = element[,element] [,element]…Whereelement = [!]Freq1[+Freq2][+Freq3][+Freq4] /Duration

Freq: the frequency of the tone (ranges from 200 to 7000 Hz). If it is set to 0Hz, it means silence.

A tone is comprised of at most four different frequencies.

Duration: the duration (in milliseconds) of the dial tone, ranges from 0 to 30000ms.

You can configure at most eight different tones for one condition, and separate them by commas. (e.g., 250/200, 0/1000, 200+300/500, 600+700+800+1000/2000).

If you want the phone to play tones once, add an exclamation mark “!” before tones (e.g., !250/200, 0/1000, 200+300/500, 600+700+800+1000/2000).

The default value is blank.

I understand you can change the tone but is there any way to change the volume?

Hi all,

We use the program called Audacity, and it solved the issue.
