External Busy Lamp - KURT - 11-06-2021 08:26 PM

I have a customer that wants an external busy lamp for his call center phones. The users sit in cubicles and he wants to see when they are on a call. He needs to see them when he walking around the office so a sidecar on his phone will not be adequate.
I can install an external light above each cubical so they can be seen but need a way to turn them on when user in off hook. They all use headsets so I will not be able to use the hook switch.
I have a FXS gateway that I can use to turn a light on if I can get an analog station to go off and on hook when the user does. Is there a way to make an addition station go off hook when there IP phone does or another way to do this? They all use T54W phones.

The busy lamp field is a typical feature in the telephone of a personal assistant. It supports the assistant's call management and allows transferring calls to the boss, receiving or picking up calls and knowing the current call status in the boss' office

Hello Kurt,
The only way I know, is utilising headsets ex: yealink WH6x + BLT60 busy light or sennheiser headset + sennheiser busy light.
If you need to do this with a softphone you could always use Plenom busy light on your softphone. We utilise VOP micro softphones + plenom Kuando busylight and the solution is really nice.
