Powering up a New BT110 Device
  1. After power up, wait for the device to complete the initialization process as described below.  The process may take up to 60 seconds:
    • The first power-up indication is the Ring LED flashing blue. The BT110 device is starting its boot-up process. 
    • Then the Ring LED will switch to rotating orange, indicating that the device is in the Wi-Fi setup mode (Captive Portal mode) and that the device is ready for setup.

After the device has completed its boot-up process, you should see the Ring LED rotating orange. Continue to Accessing and Logging into your Device Web Console below.

Powering up a BT110 Device which has gone through Wi-Fi SSID Setup, or has completed AVS Registration previously
  1. After power up, wait for the device to complete the initialization process as described below.  The process may take up to 60 seconds:
    • The first power-up indication is the Ring LED flashing blue, then rotating green. 
    • Then, depending on the completeness of the Setup process previously, the BT110 LEDs may exhibit one of the following three behaviors:

The BT110 device has not completed AVS registration, and is now attempting AVS, ACM, and SIP/Telephony registration.

The BT110 device has completed AVS registration previously, but has not completed either ACM or SIP/Telephony registration, or both.

The BT110 device has completed AVS, ACM, and SIP/Telephony registration previously.

Note that: 

      • Ring LED flashing blue indicates that the BT110 device in the boot up process.
      • Ring LED rotating green indicates that the BT110 device is attempting AVS registration. Upon successful AVS registration, the Ring LED will turn off.
      • Red Phone LED indicates that the BT110 has not completed either the ACM registration, or the SIP/Telephony registration, or both. The Phone LED turns green and then off when it has successfully completed both the ACM registration and the SIP/Telephony registration.
Accessing and Logging into Your Device Web Console

To access the BuddyTalk device web console, you need to have the following: 

  1. The web console user ID and password
  2. The BuddyTalk device IP address

You can find the default BuddyTalk device ID/PW on the bottom of the device Note 1.

Note 1: If you have changed the BuddyTalk device ID/PW and do not remember the new ID/PW, then, you can use your Mobile App to reset your BuddyTalk device ID/PW to their default values. If you have not set up your Mobile App, you can down load the BuddyTalk Mobile App from Google Play store or iOS App store, and follow the instructions in the BuddyTalk Mobile App paring and usage video to pair the Mobile App to your BuddyTalk device. 

Once you have both the BuddyTalk device web console user ID/PW and the BuddyTalk device IP address, you can use a browser to connect to the BuddyTalk device web console by typing:, where is your BuddyTalk device IP address. You will be presented the web console login page as below.  Enter your user ID/PW. 

After you enter into the BuddyTalk device’s web console, you can choose to change the user ID/PW.  To do so, click System > User and arrive at the following web page and change your ID/PW. 

Setting up Your Wi-Fi Connection

To set up your Wi-Fi connection through the BT device web console, navigate to Network > Interface, and click the Ethernet and the WiFi tabs to configure Ethernet and WiFi settings respectively.

After the Wi-Fi setup completes, the Ring LED will stop rotating orange.

Please note that, even though you have completed your Wi-Fi setup, your device’s Ring LED will still be showing rotating orange after booting up if you power cycle the BT110 device without proceeding to complete your Amazon registration, and you will not be able to connect to the network via Wi-Fi as the device will stay in the Captive Portal (Wi-Fi Access Point) mode.  This is because the device is considered to be a “fresh-out-of-factory” (FooF) device before it has completed the Amazon registration.  As a FooF device, it will stay in the Captive Portal (CP) mode after power boot up, waiting to be connected by mobile phones running BuddyTalk Setup App. However, you can still connect to the device via its Ethernet interface.

Registering Your Amazon Account for Alexa Authentication and Registration

To register your Amazon account, navigate to System > Alexa Settings, and click the Auth button.

There will be pop-up window for you to sign in to your Amazon account for Amazon/Alexa authentication and registration.

After you have successfully signed in to your Amazon account, you should see the following window.  Then, you are done with the Amazon/Alexa registration.  You will then return to the BuddyTalk device web console to continue to the SIP/Telephony setup.


  1. If you skip the Wi-Fi interface configuration and proceed directly to the Amazon Alexa registration, then, the Ring LED will stay rotating orange, and it will then go off as soon as the device successfully completes the Alexa authorization and registration process. 
  2. The device will continue with ACM and SIP registration. The Phone LED stays red during the ACM and SIP/Telephony registration period, indicating that the BT device has not completed ACM registration, or SIP registration, or both.

Configuring Telephony/SIP Settings and Registering the BT110 Device to the SIP Proxy/Server

Follow the steps below to configure SIP Server Profiles and Port Settings:

  1. Configure a SIP Server Profile.  Navigate to page Telephony > Profile Config. SIP Server Profiles specify VoIP service settings such as VoIP proxy server FQDN, port, SIP signaling protocol, and other VoIP/SIP settings such as codec settings, and the digitmap specification.  Four SIP Server Profiles can be defined for each device.

Click the Edit icon to make changes.

The Edit icon

Field Name Description
1. Profile Name

Give this profile a name as a reference for the port settings.

2. Proxy Server

The FQDN or IP address of the enterprise IP-PBX or the proxy server for the subscribed VoIP service.

3. Preferred Transport Protocol


The BT110 uses this setting to set up the SIP signaling protocol. By default, UDP is selected; unless the VoIP service or IP PBX requires TCP or TLS for more reliable or secure communications.

4. SIP Domain
The BT110 uses this setting to compose the host part of SIP request URI strings. Usually, the SIP Domain is the same as Proxy Server. However, it should follow the exact requirements for the IP PBX, or the instructions for your subscribed VoIP service.
5. Digitmap/Replace Rule

Digitmap is the dialing plan for the analog phone connected to the FXS port of the BT110 device. It defines the patterns of dial strings that the BT110 can send to the IP-PBX or SIP server when the pattern has been met, and not have to wait for the InterDigit Time out or the Critical Timeout.

Refer to BuddyTalk Dialing Plan

Replace_Rule is a companion rule to the Digitmap dialing plan employed when voice commands or the BuddyTalk App are used to initiate calls.

Refer to BuddyTalk Dialing Plan

  1. Configure Port Settings for the VoIP Service. Navigate to page Telephony > Port Config.  See Figure 17. BT110 Port Setting.  The Device (Port) Configuration defines device specific parameters or settings for the VoIP service. Such specifics include which SIP Server Profile to use, the account credentials (phone number or extension number, password, authentication ID, etc.), and enabling/disabling of device-based call features, etc.
Field Name Description
1. Enable

Enable/Disable this line.

2. Profile

Choose the Profile Name created under the Profile Config.

3. User ID

The IP-PBX extension number, or the subscribed VoIP service phone number assigned to the device (SIP account).

4. Password
Account password (SIP password).
5. Display Name

Name to be displayed in Caller ID.

6. Authentication ID
Authentication ID if needed.

Note: As soon as the device successfully completes the Alexa Communication authorization/registration and SIP registration process, the BT110 device’s Phone LED will change from red to green to off.

When both the Ring LED and the Phone LED have turned off, you have successfully completed the basic BuddyTalk BT110 setup process. You are now ready to proceed to the Mid-Point Assessment Tests for setup validation. After you successfully completed the validation tests, you may proceed to the optional Tablet Controller and Mobile App Setup if you do not have any advanced setting requirements such as special network configurations (e.g., Dual-Homed mode, VPN, or VLAN tagging) or advanced SIP/Telephony configurations (e.g., Digimaps and Digit Replacement Rules).


  1. If the Phone LED stays red after you complete the BuddyTalk setup process and, when you attempt to make phone calls using Alexa voice commands such as ‘Alexa, call 1-xxx-xxxxxxx’, Alexa responds with ‘Calling is not enabled on this device …’ or ‘I can’t do that because communications is disabled on this device…’, please go to your Alexa app to enable the Alexa Communication option
  2. You can use Alexa voice commands to make phone calls by name (‘Alexa, call John Smith’) by entering the contact information into the Alexa app’s contact list. You can also import your mobile phone’s contact list to the Alexa app’s contacts.
