Just out of curiosity, for those of you who often go to Lowe’s stores and hears a tone throughout the overhead PA speakers followed by a pre-recorded female voice message saying something like “ding-dong (tone) code 50 to the front register”. My question is what piece of phone equipment (brand,unit) is making those announcements happen? I know Lowe’s uses Toshiba phones so I think it must be related to that, IDK. Just wondering, thanks! 😃

What makes you think it has anything to do with the phone system? (Other than maybe initiating the page.)

Google turns up nothing like that for that name.

Teleco manages the Toshiba system for Lowe's. We've done some sub work for Lowe's here locally, but It's been a few years since I was in the Lowe's telephone room.


There isn't anything with the Toshiba PBX that would make those triggered announcements, so doubt that it is related to the phone system. It's more likely a 3rd party device, like the indyme device mentioned above, tied into the overhead paging amplifier.

All the department stores used to use Code Call machines for quiet announcements to their staff. I don't remember who made them. We used to just tie them in to the PA systems on an Aux port.

Ah yes, code call.

Valcom V9923B was one of them.
