We are implementing a lock down procedure at my work. To make it effective we need to accomplish several things easily:
- Have a single special feature/extension for staff to call; i.e. **0000
- Calls to that feature/extension must
a) Turn off DND on all phones
b) Barge in to calls in progress
c) Put all phones on speaker
- The person placing the call will make an emergency announcement and hang up
We are able to use paging to speak over the speaker in normal day to day operations. I figured there must be a way to meet our requirements listed above. I’m just unsure where to start.
ChanSpy seemed like an option for the barge-in but needs a specific endpoint.
By making DND controlled by Asterisk, not the phone, we can turn it off en-masse. Right?
I’m looking for any helpful hints.
