Hi,

I'm searching for the most inexpensive phone system for residential that can support point-to-multipoint PAGING/INTERCOM as part of the system (and having a hard time finding the anwser). Any advice/leads on a system that:

* Paging
- Can act as an internal paging/intercom system (as well as phone system) - i.e. push a single button and speak and you are heard on the speakers of each of the other phones
- A means of putting a unit on "silent" mode so pages are not heard (e.g. in bedroom)
* Points - Up to 4 or 5 points in the house (i.e. number of handsets), only one external incoming phone line
* Fixed or Cordless (slight preference for cordless, however if cordless would be good to have the paging support in the base that the cordless phone plugs into, to avoid the issue of phones that aren't where they should be)
* No real need for any fancy features such as intelligent call direction, voice mail etc - perhaps just the ability to, if one takes a call at handset A, ability to still page to all outer units to ask person B to pick up at another point

Thanks

USED and dirty, just about any brand.

@mdaniel - no particular price

Actually I think I have see something coming out in April that may actually satisfy my requirements - this may give an example re the PTT paging support:

I think you will have a hard time finding a system that will do single touch paging is cordless and inexpensive.

mixedup,
Most any brand of small key phone systems will do what you are looking for.
If money is a big issue, you may want to look at getting a used or refurbed system.

@metelcom - I think you're right smile Up until today the only thing I could identify was a Panasonic KX-TDA Hybrid IP-PBX for Small Business [Model No: KX-TDA30AL]. But now I see there is the Vtech LS6325 coming out in April that should bring an alternative down to a residential (non-office/business) level hopefully.

@mdaniel - What brand/model did you have in mind Michael. I haven't been able to find anything that exists right now in the consumer/residential range that has the PTT with the voice coming out of speaker phones at every other handset?

I would really need to know what your budget is for this project before I can made a recommendation.
