Has anyone in the US found an economical way to have an overhead paging device? I already have a speaker from our previous analog phone system, but the only way I see from RC is to get a $500 SIP paging amp. I would LOVE to have a paging speaker / amp but can't see spending $500 to get it done. Any economical ideas?
You should be able to get SIP paging adapter for around $350. Do you have multiple zones or bell requirements, etc. though?
The only other option is not very good, but technically possible is use an inexpensive IP phone and take the speaker wires through an impedance matcher to the input of your page or powered speaker. The downside of this with RingCentral though is that you need pay for a digital line to accomplish it. Using a page adapter does not require any additional monthly fee with RC.
