Essential Info

Ideal for growing smaller businesses, the Panasonic 8 x 24 Phone System is an expandable system that supports three incoming lines and up to eight telephone stations but can be expanded to eight incoming lines and 24 telephone stations with expansion cards (sold separately). This feature-rich system offers virtually all features found in much larger commercial phone systems: You'll get Caller ID, an auto-attendant, and single-line device connectivity without installing adapter cards that ordinarily cost hundreds of dollars. Phones are sold separately.

    The built-in DISA (Direct Inward System Access) feature provides a simplified "auto-attendant" with up to three levels of single-digit voice-prompts (for example, "For sales press 1, for returns press 2"). After the first number is pressed, the directory can then open to another menu, ("For Tech Sales press 1, for Outdoor Sales 2"). This can go three levels deep without upgrades. The DISA will also automatically connect incoming fax transmissions to your specified fax extension, eliminating the need for a dedicated fax line.

    The Panasonic 8 x 24 Phone System can pass Caller ID information both to Panasonic proprietary phones and to single-line devices, such as fax machines, answering machines, and modems. Unlike many phone systems, the Panasonic 8 x 24 Phone System allows you to connect many types of single-line devices without the need for additional cards or modules. On LCD phones, the Caller ID information shows up on the LCD screen, even if the user is on a call, so they can screen calls at a glance.

    The Panasonic 8 x 24 Phone System offers a variety of options to enable customized solutions. Assign specific lines to each phone, make office-to-office intercom calls, forward calls to an outside location or your cell phone, page all system extensions, and much more.

    Program up to 100 32-digit frequently called numbers into the system for quick and easy dialing from any system phone. Prohibit certain outgoing calls by restricting selected system extensions from accessing specific area codes or exchanges — this restriction can even be limited only during certain hours. Additional features include PC programming for remote and on-site system administration and music/message on hold.

    By adding accessories to your system, you'll be able to expand the system's usage and add features to customize your phone system to your company. Available accessories include:

    3 x 8 Expansion Card (#5212E3) — Expands the system to support an additional 3 COs (incoming lines) and 8 extensions.
    2 x 8 Expansion Card (#5212E2) — Expands the system to support an additional 2 COs and 8 extensions.
    8-port Extension Card (#5212E8) — Expands the system to support an additional 8 extensions.
    Door Phone/Door Open Card (#5212D) — Supports up to 4 door intercoms. This card is also equipped with 4 relay contacts to control 4 door strike mechanisms or other compatible low-voltage devices.
    DISA/Auto Attendant Expansion Card (#5212DI) — Adds 1 channel and 180 seconds to the built-in DISA features for a total of 2 channels (simultaneous users) and 360 seconds.
    Voice Message Card (#5212V) — Adds basic voice messaging features to the system. Supports 2 channels (simultaneous users), 60 minutes total recording time.
    Caller ID Card (#5212C) — Passes Caller ID to telephones connected to the system. One is included with system; another 2 can be installed (required for Caller ID service to expanded extensions).

    All of these accessories are sold separately.

    Turn your phone system into an intercom. The Panasonic Premium Doorphone connects to your doorbell and phone system and triggers your phones to ring with a distinctive ring when a visitor arrives. Pick up any phone to talk to your visitor.

    If you're just getting started on your phone system, this system is also available as a kit that includes the system and three Panasonic LCD Speakerphones. Additional Panasonic LCD Speakerphones are sold separately.
