Snom’s IP phones get ‘smarter’ following firmware update

Integration of XML apps into Snom endpoints enables more automation for businesses.

Snom, the globally recognised brand for modern telephony in the corporate and industrial sectors, is enabling offices to become ‘smarter’ thanks to the latest firmware update for its IP phones.

While the smart home has mainly been of interest to consumers, these applications are increasingly finding their way into the office environment. Whether operating shutters, parking barriers, doors at the touch of a button, or seeing and speaking to a delivery driver from your desk – all this is possible using Snom endpoints, in combination with IP capable door intercoms and video monitoring systems, as well as with the Snom PA1, which acts as a SIP bridge for public announcement speaker systems.

New firmware updates across Snom IP phones will enable users to remotely control intelligent sockets, radiator switches, humidity, window and door sensors and lighting by feeding XML applications directly via IP phones. This control over devices works exactly as it would with your own smartphone or tablet. In addition, Snom phones now support streaming from IP webcams and Raspberry Pi cameras.

The integration of XML apps into Snom IP desk phones can be used for video messages, automatic weather forecasts and quick access to news feeds. Connected IP speakers can also be automatically muted or switched on.

“We think that our endpoints can and should take on far more tasks than just pure business communication,“ explains Florent Aubert, Head of Product Management at Snom Technology. “Through individualisation and automation in offices we want to offer our users real added value – this includes creating solutions for the ‘smart workplace.’”

Other highlights from the new firmware update include:

  • Snom phones can support L2TP communication for the construction of VPN-Tunnels.
  • Icons on function keys can be personalised
  • Outbound multicast paging enhanced by supporting call waiting for incoming calls
