I would like to be able to manage UniFi VoIP phones through the FreePBX Endpoint Manager. This is how we manage all of our other VoIP phones, and this ability is a requirement for new VoIP endpoint options.
It appears that the FreePBX project reached out in the past to partner on this implementation, but at the time, Ubiquiti was not interested (https://issues.freepbx.org/browse/FREEPBX-8114). Please reconsider!
In all fairness, my quick summary After having used the UVP over 3 months:
The UVP is a product which is great in design, fully packed with tons of functionalities (to the extreme… and far more than needed generally), but it does NOT provide well enough the basic functionality of a business phone:
1. The audio quality when using the handle is not excellent, just OK (@Mic-Level: 1,8)
2. The audio quality when using the loudspeaker (hands free mode, side tone disabled) ist totally unacceptable (hall effects, interruptions, sounds like being 5m away from the Mic, …)
3. The download of contact databases (if not from a Google account) but from an Outlook Exchange server is not working.
4. It might be a product which is usable in a large corporate environment with professional inhouse IT support but not for a SMB with little IT resources
The UBNT support is very helpful and working hard to do almost everything to satisfy customers - but they can't repair what a poor product management has overlooked. It is a shame to drop a product to the market at that stage of market readiness (und the support cost of UBNT must be enormous!)
I think this is what it describes it the best. To sad....
It may be useful to have the account displayed on the incoming call more than the IP of the PBX. If a phone is configured with multiple accounts from the same PBX then it would be impossible to determine the account that the call is coming through on by the IP alone.
UBNT team - please add URGENTLY the feature of 3-way calling!!
I can't believe that such a basic function is not standard in a business phone like the UVP, particularly at this price point. 3 Way calling is possible on any mobile handset and almost any mit-calss DECT phone. Why not on the UVP? If I would have known that before, I would not have bought it....
It would be great to have a wireless phone to walk arround like the Yealink W52P.
Just imagen to have the same base as the Unifi VoIP as it is now and you can pickup the screen like it is a smartphone and take it whit you.
Walking acros the unifi wifi acros the building and be able to phone from everywhere.
Don't do it whit the executive one other whise you have a tablet walking to your ear
I would like to be able to have calls which come in on my mobile phone be answerable on my desk handset. Often I will get calls on my mobile, meanwhile I have a $400 bluetooth-enabled deskphone!
The current Cisco SPA525 handsets support this. The mobile shows up like an extension once paired.
I'm considering to add IP phones in my house and an integrated system (unifi) will be nice but there is no ATA adapter FXO part of the product catalog from Ubiquiti...
still a lot of us have landlines (FXO) and we don't want to go to the IP phone system from Grandstream, cisco, etc.
is something coming in the future?
I know they has been discussed and show down, but most people have wanted full detailed integration. I do not want that.
What I want:
1. A feater that can be turned on and then given the URL to the API interface of the VoIP Controller (if not on same box).
2. A Simple Circle display on the Dashboard that does Orange / Green to tell me if all phone are up (bonus if could see registration status)
3. Ability from either controller to assign Aliases and DHCP-Static IP addresses and see the effects in the other.
4. If a phone is going to be on WiFi, during provisioning copy the SSID, network password without having to re-enter
5. This one is a bit harder as it is not in UniFi controller yet. Setup a button on the VoIP Controller that will send a command to the switch to toggle the PoE power on a port to reset the phone.
I have two SIP accounts registered to my phone, each has the name label filled out and when I open the phone app I can see a drop down in the top left corner where these two accounts are listed by name with the extension number alongside but on incoming calls I am not notified which account that caller has dialled.
This is a handy feature as I use a different greeting when picking up calls for each SIP account. Ideally I could label by the SIP Account name field for easy identification rather than the extension number.
The current option to display IP on incoming calls does not work for me as my lines are hosted on the same PBX IP. My Polycom has his facility so I hope it will be possible on my Ubiquiti.
Thanks in advance
Ok so I did a small install with a couple uvp in a office and they make a comment that i totally noticed to, that the phones dont have very good ringtones to be used in a buisness office is there a way to add your own, and is there a possiability to put better ring tones in a future update?
Devin, I'm not sure where to start on this topic.
That's because (it seems to me) Ubiquiti itself should
set the baseline/benchmark for this product line. Ubiquiti
needs to decide where this product fits in the space.
There is an obvious baseline for VoIP products, set by
Yaelink and Grandstream--the price leaders. Polycom,
AAstra and Cisco [and clearly Yaelink and Grandstream]
have recentlyh expanded far beyond basic features.
For example, beyond voice calling, these manufacturers
all have large, highly graphic offerings--many based on
Android engines. WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity is widely
available. All vendors provide XML / Internet screens and
and have excellent documentation, so users can discover
and implement fancy custom solutions.
PBX offerings and integration with generic PBX solutions
are supported, including device configurations, contact
databases and display drivers. There are elaborate Cisco
and MS enterprise solutions. There's user support too.
This is a very high bar for a new product line. Isn't it obvious
that if Ubiquiti wants to meet this market it would need all
these features and functions--with documentation to match?
Or--the tallest order of all--Ubiquiti could advance a completely
different paradigm perhaps based on UniFi integration.
If you want a feature list, we can all parrot the available offerings,
but that's more than obvious. What does Ubiquiti intend to do? Dave
The contacts are at the moment:
SHOWING: forename surname
SORTING: forneame surname
I'd like to have 2 options, one for sorting and one for showing - to set up something like this:
showing: forename surname
sorting: surname forename
other people may like to have:
showing: surname forename
sorting: surname forename
and maybee there are other people who would like to have
showing: surname forename
sorting: forename surname
would be nice if you could implement this 2 options. thank you!
Is there any plans to have a Pre-installed VoIP Controller on a CloudKey-like device? I am not asking for a VoIP Controller preinstalled on the Cloudkey, but a seperate device along the lines of the CloudKey hardware but running the VoIP Controller as firmware?
Our currenty Polycom handsets support connecting to and querying our LDAP directory for numbers and extensions for employees. This is extremely useful, and something we'd need in whatever handset we end up implementing. Please consider adding this feature to the Ubiquiti app on the UVP handset so that the query can be done directly from the phone app.
