Wave IP considers certain dial strings to be "emergency numbers" and treats them differently. To set up an emergency number see Configure Special Digits.
The ways that emergency numbers are different:
- Emergency numbers can make external calls without first dialing the external access code. This setting is on by default and is found in GA under General Settings>PBX (Advanced).
- Emergency Numbers can trigger alerts when dialed (see Set Up Emergency Alert).
- Emergency Number calls can be sent with unique Caller ID to identify them to the carrier (see Set Up Emergency Caller ID).
