Need Solution for Gate Opener / Intercom to Cisco ATA FXO port to ring RingCentral Phones
Customer has a Gate and Intercom that has an analog interface. Gate manufaturer tells me that it needs to ring into an FXO port on a PBX or ATA. The goal is for someone to press intercom button at gate, that rings (via the ATA) some Ringcentral Polycom IP phones and then they can press ** to allow the gate to open
Although this may work with an ATA if there is an internet service interruption or issue the gate would not open which is why we do not recommend or support this type of configuration. We have seen customers use this type of setup but it was set up without the help of RingCentral which is why we can not offer tips other than verifying an ATA connected to an analog telephony device may work this way.
