Door Bell usage

+ Cloud and Self Hosted

The pascom telephone system allows extensive interaction with door bells. In this manual you will learn which functions can be used.


In order to use a door bell as an interactive element in your contact list, corresponding roles must be defined that allow you to use the door intercom. If you do not find the door bell in your contact list, contact your system administrator or IT manager.

How to use the Door Bell

In your contact list you will find the door bell.

Door Bell in Contact List

  1. If you click on the door bell element in the contact list, you will be taken to the overview of the door intercom system, where you can view further information.

Door Bell Overview

  1. Extension - The door bell has its own internal extension number. If someone rings the doorbell, the intercom establishes a call via this extension number.

  2. Door opening allowed - Here it is defined whether you are allowed to open the door. If, as in the figure above, opening the door is blocked, talk to your IT administrator.

TIP: You can add the door bell, like any element, to the Favorites in your contact list. Simply click on the star symbol and the door bell will be added to your list of favorites.

Someone rings the door bell

If someone presses the bell at your door intercom, the intercom sets up a call and calls you. You receive the call in the pascom Dekstop Client, on the Mobile Client and also on a hardware phone.
