I am looking for a product that will alert workers in a warehouse that the phone in the office is ringing. It's an old executone system, but I can get to the primary ring/tone before the PBX.

Anyone know of a product?

we have that exact setup in our shop right now, although its about 30 years old it still works, the only problem is the bell rings whenever anyone picks up or hangs up the handset, and our system also has a switch to disable the bell when someone is in the office, ill look tomorrow to see how it is set up and get some pictures.

I would suggest the V9947A but that doesn't seem to be listed there. The V-9925A is the same but with a different (warble) tone.

These get connected directly to the CO line.
