1) Let’s start with your desk phones.

  • Bring your desk phone back to the office and simply connect it to the internet and to power, either with the adapter or with PoE (Power over Ethernet) if your network jack has PoE.
  • To find out if you have PoE: plug in the internet cable, leave the power adapter unplugged, and if the phone screen still illuminates, you have PoE.
  • Otherwise use the included adapter.

**Warning, using the wrong power adapter can damage your phone and void the warranty. If you need help, call support at 855-211-2255.

2) As for your softphone (on your computer, phone or tablet), just bring your device(s) in with you to the office. Softphones just need internet connectivity to work!

3) Next, setting up office call routing again. If you changed your call routing system when you transitioned to home offices, you can change the routing back.

4) Alert your phone system administrator to change the 911 address on your phones back to your office address (assuming they changed it to your home address when you took your phone home).
