This is for work. We need to find a product that operates like the Doro Ring Plus Teleflash. Basically what we need is an external ringer that is loud that will work on a VoIP phone. Most external ringers that we have found will only work via an RJ-11 (telephone line) passthrough which doesn't work for VoIP phones as there is no analog line to run through. The Doro Ring Plus runs the risk of not working as it is designed for 230V 50Hz with a European-style plug. Worse yet, it's is not available in the US, and most UK dealers aren't willing to ship it.
The big feature that we want from this is that this ringer has a small microphone/sensor that detects when the phone is ringing as opposed to using the ring voltage coming down an analog telephone line. This is the really essential part for connecting a loud external ringer to a VoIP phone.
Our Google-fu is failing us bigtime on this one. Any suggestions on getting an external ringer to work with a true VoIP phone that don't involve tearing open the phone itself would be awesome! Thanks MeFis.
Due to business concerns I cannot list the make or model of phone we need the external ringer to work with. Assume the phone is a VoIP phone with standard Cat 5 RJ-45 connections and does not use analog service directly. The phone is a deskset that has two RJ-9 connections, one for the handset and one for a headset. Neither of those connections do anything when the phone rings. The ringing comes out of the speakerphone's speaker. We are aware that we can tear apart the phone and connect an external ringer to the speakerphone, however, that is not the solution we are looking for. Hell, if the Doro Ring Plus device will work on 110-120V 60Hz, does anyone know where we can get one?
