Question about Panasonic KX-T7630 Corded Phone
We have a large property, with about 40 workers, we have portable fire alarms, but we would like to use the intercom on the phone, is there any way to set it up to push a buton to make the alarm sound out. We have the intercom set up already all over the property.
O.K. You have external paging already set up, so here's the quickest solution. Listen to the tones and see if it's acceptable. http://www.bogen.com/products/tones/tg4c/
Now, the problem is WHICH BUTTON DO YOU WANT TO PUSH, and how do you want to reset it?
You can mount panic buttons, or dial an extension on the phone system, but you're going to need extra equipment to lock the tone. A simple pair of latching relays from someone like Sandman (www.sandman.com look for Wizard's toolbox). can do the job, but you still need to get a set of buttons and know who is pushing and where they are pushing it from. Of course if you already have an alarm system that provides a contact (probable), then you just have to run 2 wires between the systems, add a power supply and you're good to go.
There are other units out there that can have multiple triggers. If playing audio, or announcing zones is better, you could go to www.vikingelectronics.com and grab a K-2000 DVA which will play one-minute messages from 8 different zones.
Anyway, it's pretty trivial when you use the TG4C as the source of tones. The rest will be familiar to both the phone installer and the alarm guy.

Check your telephone to see if it has an intercom feature. Many wireless phones that come with multiple units allow you to temporarily turn one unit into an intercom to contact other units attached to the same wireless phone system. Depending on the model, you can contact all the other phones at once, or a single specific phone, by pushing the intercom button and entering the other mode. To put the phone back into regular mode, all you have to do is switch off the intercom option.
Contact your telephone provider. Some telephone service providers allow landline phones to call themselves, which enables the phone to function as an improvised intercom. You would simply pick up the phone, dial and then close the connection. Once the phone is answered elsewhere in the house, you will have established a line to another phone and you can speak normally on it. This has largely been eliminated due to lack of need as technology advances, but it may still be an option with some providers.
Purchase and install an intercom system that will work through an existing phone line. Many of these products, some of which are produced by Panasonic, operate as a halfway point between a traditional intercom system and a phone line. The exterior intercom links directly to the phone line, and you can pick up the phone and talk through the intercom unit outside once the system is properly set up
