Small 6 Polycom phone user. Noisy auto shop environment. Have a paging speaker installed. 

Want to be able to call from a cellphone and have it connect to the paging speaker.

Purpose -- "Hey, please open the garage door."

Yes, I can think of at least one way.  You need a digital line user, an ATA, a Bogen TAMB, and either an amp and speakers or at least on -24v powered speaker.

You would assign a number to the ATA, connect it the Bogen input and connect the amp or speaker to the TAMB output.  Then when you dial the phone number or extension you will access the paging.

the only work around I know of, would be to use the mobile app, and enter the extension you set up for the paging group. You can not just call the IVR and enter the ext as it can't receive phone calls if its a paging ext

That could work too if you used a Cyberdata amp or speaker and then dialed *84+page group from mobile app.
