The PA-IP is a paging adapter that interfaces directly with hosted and on-premise VoIP SIP phone systems. It is designed for single-zone and multicast paging as well as interfacing with analog amplifiers and speakers. The PA-IP connects to a PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch with a single RJ45 Ethernet connection. It can be programmed as an end point device as well as be a part of a multicast paging group for zone paging. Emergency notifications can play through the PA-IP while giving priority to voice paging. Use the loud ringing/night bell trigger input to alert employees in noisy areas of a phone call, and can also be used for signaling after-hours calls. The PA-IP has an amplified output capable of powering five additional 8-Ohm analog ceiling speakers and a line-level output for connecting to an existing amplifier or self-amplified speakers. Network downloadable firmware and auto-provisioning software is available from the Viking Electronics website and will keep the PA-IP up to date and operating effectively. A security code that protect against unauthorized paging can be activated using the auto-provisioning software. The programmable on-board relay can be used to trigger lights, cameras, door strikes, gate motors and more.
