English term or phrase:chime tone
The Door Box is a self-contained Intercom unit typically used to monitor an entrance door. A visitor at the
door can press the Door Box call button (like a door bell). The Door Box then sends chime tones to all
extensions programmed to receive chimes. To answer the chime, the called extension user just lifts the
handset. This lets the extension user talk to the visitor at the Door Box. The Door Box is convenient to
have at a delivery entrance, for example. It is not necessary to have company personnel monitor the
delivery entrance; they answer the Door Box chimes instead. Any number of system extensions can
receive Door Box chime tones.
