Algo 2507 Ring Detector
The Algo 2507 enables Loud Ringing, Notification & Visual Alerting without a SIP Registration – The 2507 Ring Detector is designed to enable loud ringing, notification, and visual alerting directly from a compatible IP phone. The Ring Detector can detect when the phone is ringing and activate an Algo device with a smart relay input, such as a speaker or strobe light.
Once the 2507 Ring Detector has activated one Algo IP device, the IP device may activate Algo devices via an available relay or it may simultaneously multicast to other Algo IP endpoints on the network creating a scalable notification system directly from a single IP phone.
The advantage of the 2507 is no additional seat registration on the cloud / hosted telephone system is required for the ring detector and the Algo IP endpoint, thereby avoiding a recurring monthly cost.
With an Algo IP speaker such as the 8180 SIP Audio Alerter or outdoor rated 8186 SIP Horn Speaker, loud ringing in noisy or outdoor locations will avoid missed telephone calls. In very high noise or noise-sensitive environments, the 8128 SIP Strobe Light can be used with the 2507 Ring Detector.
As MS Teams is one of the few platforms that does not natively support SIP without additional equipment many organizations deploying MS Teams may run into unexpected challenges when looking for loud ringing or visual alerting solutions. Fortunately, organizations deploying IP phones with suitable headset jacks may take advantage of the Algo 2507 Ring Detector in conjunction with an Algo speaker or strobe light to improve notification without needing a SIP registration.
Many phones can be configured to provide ring audio to the headset jack instead of the speaker. The Algo 2507 module detects the low-level audio from the headset jack and provides an isolated signal to activate an Algo SIP endpoint.
Only one compatible Algo SIP Endpoint can be connected directly to the 2507 Ring Detector at a time, however, any of the endpoint devices can send a signal to additional devices via the relay output connections on the back, or via multicast.
