Algo 8188/8186

March 2016

Step 1: Gather information for user.

Each user has a set of credentials which will be needed to configure each phone. For each phone that you are configuring, obtain the following:

  • SIP Address (Address of Record)
  • SIP Password
  • Auth Username
  • Username
  • Proxy/Domain

You can find this information in the user detail pages under the Users tab in the Phone Configuration section.

Step 2: Log into your Algo 8188 Speaker through a web browser

Finding the IP address

After boot up the blue light will turn off and the speaker will have obtained an IP address. If there is no DHCP server the 8186 SIP Horn Speaker will default to the static IP address Connect and hold the reset terminals (on the back of the unit) to hear the IP address over the speaker. The reset terminals will not cause a reset unless connected during power up. The IP address may also be discovered by downloading the Algo locator tool to find Algo devices on your network:

Basic Settings tab:

  • SIP Domain (proxy server): Domain
  • Ring/Alert Mode: None
  • Page Function: Enabled
  • Allow SIP REGISTER: Enabled
  • Page Extension: Username
  • Authentication ID: Auth Username
  • Authentication Password: SIP Password
  • Save

Advanced Settings tab:

  • Outbound Proxy:
  • Register/Subscribe Period(seconds): 3600
  • KeepAlive Method: Double CRLF
  • KeepAlive Period(seconds): 30
  • Server Redundancy: Disabled
  • Save

***NOTE from a customer who recently configured this device:  When rebooting from the web interface of the 8180 it does not do the trick when changing certain settings. The device registers fine once the SIP settings were correct, but any attempt to page or ring failed with a busy signal until the unit was powered off and on again.
