Great for separating Home from Office line!
on July 24, 2013
I've had Ooma for a few years now for my Home-Office line and finally decided to make the switch for our Home landline. With the Linx device, I can assign a phone number to it and have my home-office line only ring on the phone it's attached to, not every phone in the house. I can still have the Ooma Telo plugged into the main home phone and only ring there, too. Great solution. I'm thinking of getting another one for the fax machine.
The setup was almost too easy. You just plug it in near your Telo and hold down the Page key (the Antenna looking thing) on the Telo for 3 seconds. It says something saying that it's ready for device pairing or something like that. In a few seconds, one light turns blue and the other flashes blue and orange. It's downloading firmware, DON'T touch it until it is solid blue. It will reset, so no lights will be on for a second, but be patient, it will come back. Once both lights are solid blue, then unplug it and put it where you want it. My Telo is on the first floor and the Linx is installed upstairs in the other end of the house. I plugged it in and it works just fine!
