Yealink EHS 36 Setup with Busy Buddy/Beacon

Yeah, usually. I mean, it’s a solid MAYBE. Setting it up is a little complicated but here’s how:

And yes, you can send these photos to Customers if needed.

FOR SENNHEISER:

• Take your y-shaped cable and plug plug the bottom of the Y cord (RJ45 end) into the back of the cube under the green port. Plug the other RJ45 cable into the larger port of your Yealink box. Now the smaller cable of the y-cord is RJ9 size, plug that into one of the Busy Light ports (it doesn’t matter which one).

• Next take the RJ12 straight cord that came with the Yealink EHS. It’s a short, straight cord. Plug one end into the smaller port of the Yealink box. Then plug other end into the EHS port of the Yealink telephone.

• Now head to the Busy Light and find the straight RJ9 cord that it comes with. Plug one side into the other port of the Busy Light box. Plug the other side into the headset jack of the Yealink telephone.

• Leave your handset and curly cord plugged into the telephone in the handset jack.

• Set the Sennheiser base to compat A and dipswitch 1 down.

  • Compat on BusyBuddy should be set to 1 & 3, and the Busy Beacon should be set to I & I

• Last plug in the power cables for everything-- Sennheiser base, the Busy Light power cable, and the Busy Light lamp cable.

• Stick the Busy Light wherever you like!
