We have various phones dotted around the Hackspace. Feel free to use and interact with the phones. Usage is documented below.
Our telephone number is 020 3422 0547. It's managed by the Voice-Over-IP automated system and provides pre-recorded information about the Hackspace.
When you dial the telephone number, you are greeted with a menu for the following items.
You can dial any of the extensions from another extension in the Hackspace. Just dial the extension number.

Internal Ring Groups
Its all possible to ring a group of extensions simultaneously. Ring groups should be in the format 70XX
|7001||Ring Ground Floor|
|7002||Ring 1st Floor|
N.B. The Car Park phone is not in any ring group, to avoid the general public answering internal calls.
Internal Feature Codes
There are several internal feature codes. These can be dialled from any phone. Hopefully this list will grow in future.
Network numbers are usually boring numbers that are useful for support or troubleshooting. They usually begin with a 1.
|100||Operator||Accesses the same help menu as the external telephone number.|
|152||Echo Test||Echos back all audio. Good for testing phones.|
|155||Hello World||Plays "Hello World" several times and then hangs up.|
Special Numbers are for more advanced features. They start with 77.
|7777||Broadcast / Page Call||Allows you to Broadcast your speech around the Hackspace. Listen to the instructions.|
Outbound calls to chargeable numbers are blocked, however its possible to dial Free and Emergency numbers. See below for details.
Calls to 0800 and 0500 Freephone numbers are permitted.
Outbound calls to the Emergency Services and Single Non-Emergency Numbers such as 101 are supported. However, as with all VoIP systems its strongly recommended that you use a fixed line or mobile phone where available. In the event of an internet or power outage, outbound calls will not work.
The Hackspace Phone system is peered (connected) with other networks via SIP. If you wish to peer with other networks such as other Hackspaces, contact a maintainer.
When dialling a peered network, enter the required prefix followed by hash, then dial the number you wish to call.
N.B: Coming Soon
Each of the phones has a Directory Button that looks like a book - pressing it will bring up a menu that lists the various extensions and ring groups so you don't have to remember them.
Currently all calls are unencrypted.
