SPA112 with Skype

Hello everyone

I am quite a tech savvy person, however, I'm completely in the dark when it comes to communication systems. So apologies in advance for the possible naivety of my question.

I have bought a SPA112 2 port phone adapter in the hope that I can connect a burglar alarm to a VOIP system via my LAN.

The reason is that we abandoned our analog landline a couple of years ago, opting for mobile (cell) phones and Skype instead.

My questions are these:

Can the SPA112 be used to make an outgoing call from the burglar alarm to my cell phone?

Can the SPA112 do this via Skype or will I need to join another VOIP provider.

What settings do I need to change to make this work?

Please be patient with me.

Many thanks

Seb

I'm considering using a cheap outgoing calls only VOIP like this http://soho66.co.uk/7456/all/1/Single-User-VoIP.aspx

Hopefully that will work.

Is there anything I should know about setting up the SPA112?

Thanks again
