For multi zone paging with Algo Adapters to legacy amp and speakers, use a mix of Multicast and SIP Paging.
Setup a SIP extension for the ALGO Adapter and configure multicast as Master. Using advanced Multicast zones, you can register each zone as an extension, and the ALGO will perform the multicast broadcast of the SIP Call.
Configure your Zultys phones to listen to the Multicast Address for the zone you want to play over phones, and make sure you set priority to below that of a normal call so that you don’t put your own page call on hold (this will result in blasting Music on Hold through the entire system).
For additional ALGO adapters connected to separate amps you can easily set those to Slave to receive the multicast, and adjust the address for ones you don’t want to listen to.
Use Zultys Dial Plans to restrict who can dial the paging extensions.
For Doorphones, create an extension for each phone; this will allow you to call the phone instead of waiting for someone else to press the button. Additionally create a final extension for “Door Phone Routing” and direct all doors to dial that one extension.
Create call handling rules on the routing extension to create schedules and find-me-follow-me rules for the doorphone calls, including ringing overhead on the paging if required.
To ring on all overheads setup a ring extension on the Master node and register it against the system. A user is not required, only the device is. Add the device ID into the above Fine Me rule as a PhoneID. Multicast will blast that out to all slaves.
To ring a specific zone setup an individual Ring Extension on the Slave Algo amp for that zone so that way it’ll only ring itself and won’t multicast it out.
In either case with a Ring Extension make sure there is a selected Audio File to play that will loop as long as the Ring Extension detects an Invite. When the Invite packets stop happening then the loop stops.
Note that the Ring Extensions on the ALGO devices do NOT need to be Users on the MX just a registered device. Call handling rules on the single Doorphone Routing user will be able to route calls to the deviceID of the registered device without needing a user license
