How to setup BT110 for Work from Home

    1. Connecting BT110 to your office phone system
      • VPN into your office voice network
      • Configuring the BT110 as an IP-phone extension to your office IP-PBX 
    2. Setting up Digitmap and Digit Translation Rules for user friendly voice call control 

Connecting BT110 to your office phone system

Take the following two steps to connect the BuddyTalk device to your office IP-PBX system:

      1. VPN into your office voice network
      2. Configure your IP-PBX as the SIP proxy of the BuddyTalk device

The BT110 is equipped with a VPN client to allow the device to connect to the office VPN server, allowing the BT110 to appear as if it is located in the office network.

VPN into your office voice network

Configure the BuddyTalk VPN client to connect to the office voice VPN server:

      1. Navigate to Network > VPN Setting
      2. Upload the necessary VPN profile and credentials to connect to your office VPN server.
      3. Check “Enable VPN” and uncheck “Route All network traffic through VPN”. 

Note: the BuddyTalk device VPN client uses the OpenVPN library, and is intended to connect to OpenVPN based VPN servers.

Configuring the BT110 as an IP-phone extension to office IP-PBX

Depending on whether your office uses an IP-PBX or hosted voice service, you will configure the SIP Proxy Server settings with either your IP-PBX server information or the server from which your hosted voice service is provided.

Navigate to Telephony > Profile Config to configure your IP-PBX to be the SIP Proxy server of the BT110 device.

Note: the BuddyTalk device VPN client uses the OpenVPN library, and is intended to connect to OpenVPN based VPN servers.

Navigate to Telephony > Port Config to configure the extension number and enter the required user credentials for the BuddyTalk device to be an IP-phone extension.

Digitmap and Digit Translation Rules handling IP-PBX prefix rules for user friendly voice call control

If your IP-PBX requires a prefix for external dialing, to utilize Alexa voice commands, Mobile App and Tablet Controller’s contacts without modifying their contact numbers with the IP-PBX prefix, you can use the BT devices Digitmaps and Digit Replacement Rules to automatically take care of the various prefix requirements.  An example of such Digitmap and Digit Replacement Rule for the following IP-PBX dial plan where a prefix of ‘9’ is required for external dialing is given below.

Digit(s) dialed Description
0
Local Operator
[2-7]xxx
An internal extension number. Example: 5587
9[2-9]xxxxxx
A local number. Example. 9 433 5589
[0-9*].#
Any dialed numbers followed by a “#” sign. Example: 8657#
*xx
Star services. Example: *76
91[2-9]xxxxxxxxxx
A long distance number. Example: 9 1 925 778 1029
9011 + up to 15 digits
An international number. Example: 9 011 65 65866110

Please see Dialing Plan, Digitmaps, and Digit Replacement Rules for details.

As a result, you will be able to enjoy the convenience of Alexa voice command dialing, the flexibility of smartphone Mobile App based call control, and yet connect seamlessly as an IP-phone extension to your office IP-PBX system.

Enjoying a broad suite of Alexa virtual assistant features

Since all non-SIP traffic stay in its original route (not going through office voice network VPN), the Alexa Voice Service features remain intact.

    • Standard Alexa questions and commands,
    • Timers, alarms, reminders,
    • Voice-enabled control of AVS-supported IoT devices
