Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Obihai OBi110 Voice Service Bridge and VoIP Telephone Adapter (Office Product)
I have had this device for 6 months with no issues connecting through GV. There is a way to make 911 available on the device. All you have to do is remote into the device with your browser, go to system management, and then auto-provisioning. Under "Obitalk-provisioning" use the pull down menu next to method, select "disabled." Now save and re-boot. Once it comes back up, select "setup wizard." Now under "outbound settings", un-check default next to "Phone DigitMap" and Phone "OutboundCallRoute." Now next to "digitMap" clear the text that is in there now and paste the following:
Now next to "OutboundCallRoute" paste the following:
Where you see the xxxxxxxxxx is where you enter the phone # for the 911 dispatching center for your area. If you call the sheriff's office you can ask what the outside # is for your local 911 dispatching center(they all should have one). So you are basically forwarding 911 to that #. You can test it out by putting your cell phone # in there and dialing 911 and it should call your cell phone instead. Just make sure to save and re-boot after entering all the correct information.
The only thing with the obitalk is that when you call 911, they will obviously not have your address information.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for the awesome instructions. This worked perfectly. I tested and verified like your instructions stated. The only thing I would warn people on is the 911 system will not be able to trace the address to the phone. The 911 operator told me that since the 911 number I use is the the admin number that I would have to provide an address. But thanks for the instructions!!

I'd like to skip signing up for E911 but I would like to try this for my Obi200. Would this still work?
