Configure Yealink W56h handsets with your W60P

The Yealink W60P Wireless DECT IP Phone can support multiple handsets. 

Handsets can be configured to share a single UniTel Voice Employee Extension (Account).  When sharing an account, only 1 person can use the phone at a time.  This might be useful if distributing the cordless handsets throughout a small office. 

--OR--

Each Handset can be configured to use a separate UniTel Voice Employee Extension (Account). In this configuration, you will only need to purchase 1 "Base" (W60P), and then each additional handset (W56h) can be configured as a separate "Line" allowing each handset to make and receive calls independent of the other handsets.  

Follow the steps below for your desired scenario:

Configure Handsets to Share Extension

1. Access the web interface of the Base (as done when performing initial configuration of the device). 

2. Login to the interface (defaults are admin for both username & password) 

3. Click the tab Accounts 

4. click "Number Assignment" on the left. 

5. Both H1 and H2 should use the Account / Line 1 for Incoming Lines and Outgoing Lines. (see below screenprint with the correct settings)


Configure Each Handset as a Separate Extension
1. Access the web interface of the Base (as done when performing initial configuration of the device). 
2. Login to the interface (defaults are admin for both username & password) 
3. Click the tab Accounts 
4. Click "Number Assignment" on the left. 
5. Assign each Handset (H1, H2, H3, etc...) to their respective "Account".  The last 3 digits of the Account represent the Employee Extension. (see below screenprint with the correct settings)
