Maximum # of Scouts ?

Post by grathke » Fri Jul 24, 2009 2:33 pm

I know the maximum number of Scouts is 4. However, I'm wondering if there can be more if they are not connected to a phone. The reason I'm asking is I've got a few used where I have wireless phones. Sounds silly to have them, but it makes it easy to know if the internet is up or not just by glancing in and seeing if the blue ooma light is on.

I've also got one in my server room just so I know at a glance if the internet is up in there.

Thanks
Glenn

Hi Glenn,

As far as I know, the Hub can only support up to 4 Scouts, regardless of if there's a phone connected to the Scout or not.

You could always try more than 4, but there's no guarantee that it will work.

Hi,

I could, but that would require an additional cost, and if it doesn't work, I'd have to try and sell it. But you're right, last resort I could try it.

Thanks
Glenn

Scouts sell briskly on eBay
