Tech Support Email Availability Today
Posted by Matthew Kambic on 20 February 2015 03:26 PM

Today our thrid-party hosted email service was unavailable for most of the morning. This prevented us from receiving any emails that you might have sent until now. We have been assured that any emails you previous sent are NOT lost, but it will take a few hours until these queued emails reach us. As of right now we CAN directly receive any new email that you send. This service interruption only affected emails sent this morning.

We apologize for any inconvenience that this might have caused. We look forward to assisting you with all of your technical needs.

New firmware 3.4 for SIP Intercoms
Posted by Matthew Kambic on 17 February 2015 10:32 AM

We are happy to announce that Firmware Release 3.4 for our SIP Series Station has just been released. Many of these features are the result of direct user feedback!

In this release, we added several new powerful features:

  • The loudspeaker and microphone monitoring is supporting now the same "pink noise" as known in the intercom system, which is quite a nice feature compared to other DTMF based systems out there.
  • 802.1X has often been requested in corporate environments. With that feature it is now possible to integrate the SIP stations seamlessly into professionally secured networks.
  • The Sequences have been greatly enhanced as well. Functionality like day/night switchover (by day or time or via a manual switch), call triggering after a second push of a button "If you really want to place an emergency call, please push the button again" or whatever which customization is needed, can now be handled directly in the station.

Besides that, the release incorporates some project specific changes and several other bug fixes which are listed below.

  • NTP Support
  • VLAN/TOS tagging
  • Configurarable payload type for DTMF
  • Enhanced logging functionality
  • SNMP Trap is Input active
  • Local search functionality in WS800 phonebook
  • RFC3515 support (blind and attended transfers)
