If it's any help, I live in a gated community and this works fine. The guest looks up my name on the call box and then the the call box dials my phone number. After I verify who it is I press 9 and the gate opens. I have never had a problem with this.

I live in a highrise and the intercom system calls my cellphone because that is the number I have on file as I don't have a landline phone. It works fine. I would think that I could replace my cellphone number with my Vonage number and it would the same, although I don't have any direct knowledge that this does work.

The only reason I don't switch the contact number to my Vonage number is that I turn off my internet (and Vonage) at night.

The way to check your system is see if they would allow you to register a cellphone. If so, Vonage should work.

If your security system is like most, the system is listening for the "touch tone" number to open the door/gate. Since the Vonage system allows for sent "touch-tone", it should work.

If it's a system that uses direct wiring right into your apartment or condo's wiring, there is no guarantee that it will work with Vonage. What if he was trying to hook up a VTech phone as his device?

If it's a system, as one poster said, actually makes an outbound call on its own to whatever number they have on file, that should work perfectly, e,r as well as any inbound Vonage call Lol

---Anyone know what would happen if it IS a direct-wiring situation with the apartment door buzzer, but if one disconnects the telephone line from the telephone BOX OUTSIDE, plugs the cable phone into the telephone jack, and THEN tries to buzz the lobby door open?

I have heard that if you disconnect the phone line from the outside phone box, the Voip phones will work on one's old telephone jacks. I wonder then if it buzzes open the lobby door when one presses "9".

I am looking for answers, as I am sooooo sick of Verizon and want to get a Voip phone. This apartment buzzer situation has me bugged, though: I don't want to have to keep a regular telephone line just to buzz open the door!

Thanks!



thanks!

This sounds not unlike a Tivo or security system-type setup. I'm not sure why it wouldn't work, provided the connectivity is there and the POTS is cut off and isolated.

Up until recently, I have lived in a couple of secure buildings/gated communities and none of them were directly linked to the wiring of my apartment. The intercoms made a local phone call to whatever number I had on file and then listened to the DTMF tone of the digit 9 to open the door/gate and hung up. These systems worked perfectly fine with my Vonage line. If it didn't I could have never called a company again and navigated through their phone menu. These systems are all based on DTMF. I believe all the hardwired intercoms provide a separate phone in your unit. I would be pissed if they hooked into my phone line and seize the line if somebody calls from downstairs while I'm on the phone.

One way to know for sure is if you currently have a POTS line with Caller ID. If you get Caller ID information when somebody rings from downstairs, you know that it is an actual phone call placed by the Intercom.

---Interesting. This makes sense. I DO have Caller ID, and when the buzzer downstairs is ringing my phone, I have noticed it just says "Incoming Call" on my Caller ID. Rather generic. But as far as I know, no other calls come in with that name.

And I have noticed a different ring tone when the door buzzer is ringing my phone than other callers. It only rings once, while all other calls are a rapid two-ring tone.



But what you say about the number 9 makes a lot of sense. If the call were indeed "hard wired", the building would have to provide another phone for my use in my apartment.

Actually, this seems to be an instance where the intercom is wired into your phone line. "Incoming Call" is displayed by the phone when it doesn't receive Caller ID data, which is a pretty sure sign that the call didn't originate from the phone company, but rather the intercom. If the call came from the phone company and say the intercom has caller ID blocked or something it would say Unavailable or Unknown or something to that extend, but not the generic "Incoming call"

--Well, darn. I'll have to check this again, but it sounds like it means that I can't access the door system from a Voip line, no? Will the call (door buzzer call, that is) even go through on a cable line in this case? If so, at least I can go let the blasted people in myself. It'd be the worst if I don't even know someone is buzzing me to let them in.
