Perfect - that did it, I'm in business - THANK YOU!
Why do I want a hotline? My elderly parents-in-law, who live in another state, have a tendency to leave their landline off hook, then no one can reach them by phone. By setting up an Obi100 with a dedicated inexpensive cordless phone at their home, I can place a voip call to their Obi100, using the Obitalk network (for zero cost) to tell them to recradle their landline handset. This is so much better than calling one of their neighbors and asking them to check up on my parents-in-law
And, my parents-in-law can use their Obi100 (with dedicated cordless phone) as an emergency hotline (no dialing) to call my Obi100 if they become flustered or distressed.
And, if circumstances change, I can remotely manage their Obi100 via the Obitalk Portal. I love this solution. THANKS AGAIN
