Norstar MICS 7.1 door phone rings until answered

Norstar MICS 7.1 door phone rings until answered

Norstar MICS 7.1 door phone rings until answered

I have a MICS v7.1 (30DEC12 NAT) with a Nortel door phone (BST?).

In admin, I've got call DN = 739, Rings: 5, Page zone: 3, Chime type: 1. Opener type=none.

739 is setup to ring the extensions I want it to, but when I hit the door phone button, the extensions in 739 keep ringing until it's answered--doesn't give up and go to the page zone after five rings.

In the hunt group, I've got member DNs, no lines assigned, mode: broadcast, if busy: busy tone, Q timeout: 60, Overflow 739, Name, Aux ringer: N, Dstnct ring: none.

"Nortel door phone (BST?)."
Norstar Door phone is for Norstar systems only
BST Door phones are for BCM systems, however they maybe backwards compatible but somebody else may know/answer.
Next time on site get the NT number on the back.

-Make sure the Door phone and the phones are in the same page zone.
In other words you want Door Phone programming to page zone 3 (as you have) but you also want both the Door Phones DN and the Sets DN's to be in zone 3.

-"Page zone: 3" besides that, see if the Norstar door phone programming also as a choice of Page, Ring or Both, I know BCM has this option but I forget on Norstar Door Phones.
