NOTE: VVX phones support a maximum of 64 buddies for Open SIP server platforms
From the Admin Guide:
Using the Presence Feature
The presence feature enables you to monitor the status of other remote users and phones. By adding remote users to your Buddy List, you can monitor changes in the status of remote users in real time or you can monitor remote users as speed-dial contacts. This only shows busy or idle but not if the monitored person is being called.
Note: This functionality depends on your SIP server!
Note: Prior to UC Software 5.3.0 the VVX300/VVX310/VVX400/VVX410 and/or using a Paper Expansion module do not display the status via the LED's!
In order to use this functionality the feature.presence.enabled="1" must be activated via a configuration file or simple enabled via the Web Interface
NOTE: The above is only possible running UC Software 4.0.0 or later !
This is not a Busy Lamp field as described => here <=
Once this feature has been enabled you can add a new directory contact to you phone and set the Buddy Watch to enabled.
The phone will send Subscribe to the contact(s) in question.
The server will send a Notify(s) containing the status of the contact(s)
