External ringer/light for noisy environments

Hi All,


We have a TIPT phone located in the factory next to a turret punch, so anyone standing near the machine can't hear the phone ringing.  Has anyone tried attaching an external ringer or strobe light to a TIPT phone in this sort of environment?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: External ringer/light for noisy environments

Hi stdm, 


Thanks for using Crowd Support. It would be best to chat to our business team here and we can look into some options based on the handset used. 


It would also be good to make sure the phone's volume is on full. Press the (+) or (-) volume key to adjust the volume to the desired level: on hook adjusts ring volume; off hook adjusts handset/ headset/speaker.

Re: External ringer/light for noisy environments

Hi stdm,


This kind of thing has been done, I however can't provide the specifics. Your best bet is to contact your account team for options.


There may be a "TIPT of Everything" phone solution perfect for your environment; or there may be a basic option using the headset port of the phone to trigger an external ringer.
