Description


The present invention relates to a telephone device having a function of transmitting a pseudo busy tone when an incoming call is received.


In an answering machine, there is a technique for performing good processing using a caller ID notification function (for example, Patent Document 1). However, in the technique of Patent Document 1, when a telephone number that matches the transmission number information included in the incoming call signal does not exist in the telephone directory database when an incoming call is received, a standard response message is transmitted, but the response message is transmitted. By doing this, the side where the answering machine is installed is notified to the sender that the answering machine is away. As a result, the side where the answering machine is installed has a drawback that even if it does not want to be aware of the absence, the caller will be aware of the absence.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION An object of the present invention is to provide a telephone device having a function in which a caller is not aware of absence by automatically responding to an incoming call and sending a pseudo busy tone to the caller.


The telephone device of the present invention is a telephone device having a function of automatically responding to an incoming call, and when there is an incoming call, the caller telephone number extracting means for extracting the telephone number of the caller of the incoming call, and talking to the caller A pseudo-busy sound sending means for sending a pseudo-busy sound that is a false busy sound to make it appear to be inside, and when there is an incoming call, automatically responding to the incoming call and a predetermined answering response When there is an incoming call in a state where the answering response executing means is activated and the permission number registration means for registering the telephone number of the caller that permits the answering answer is executed. The caller telephone number extracting means extracts the caller's caller's telephone number, and if the extracted telephone number is not registered in the permission number registering means, the caller's telephone number is automatically responded to the call. A pseudo-busy sound is transmitted.


According to the present invention, even if there is no incoming call responder when there is an incoming call, even if the incoming call cannot be answered, it is a false busy tone that automatically answers the incoming call and makes the caller think that it is busy It is possible to provide a telephone device having a function of not being able to understand absence, which pretends that an incoming call responder is not absent by transmitting a pseudo busy tone.


It is a functional block diagram of a telephone apparatus. It is a flowchart explaining operation | movement of the telephone apparatus of this invention. It is a figure explaining a database.


Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described with reference to the drawings.

FIG. 1 is a functional block diagram of the telephone device of the present invention. The telephone device 100 includes a line interface unit 101 that is connected to the telephone line 200. The voice of the user of the telephone device 100 is input from a microphone (not shown) of the handset 103 and transmitted to the telephone line 200 via the voice transmission / reception unit 102 and the line interface unit 101. The voice from the other party is reproduced from the telephone line 200 via the line interface unit 101 and the voice transmission / reception unit 102 and the speaker (not shown) of the handset 103 held by the user of the telephone device 100. When the user of the telephone device 100 hooks off the handset 103 and makes a call when receiving a call, the handset 103 notifies the control unit 105 of a hookoff signal.

When there is an incoming call, the caller ID extraction unit 104 extracts the caller ID of the caller and notifies the control unit 105 of the caller ID.

The pseudo-busy sound generation unit 106 generates a pseudo-busy sound that the telephone device 100 sends when an incoming call is automatically answered when the user of the telephone device 100 cannot respond to an incoming call due to going out or the like.

The answering message registration unit 107 registers an answering message sent to the caller when the telephone device 100 makes an answering service.

When an incoming call is received, a ring tone is output from the speaker 108 and an incoming call display is displayed on the display 109. As the display 109, any display device such as an LED or an LCD can be applied.

The telephone device 100 includes a key press detection unit 110 that detects key presses of the dial key 111 and the automatic response setting key 112.

When the key press detection unit 110 detects pressing of the automatic response setting key 112 while the telephone device 100 is on standby, the telephone device 100 switches to the “automatic response setting” state. The dial key 111 is a key used when making a call operation, and is a collective term for 12 keys “1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, *, #”. is there.

The telephone device 100 includes a database 113 (hereinafter referred to as the database 113) that automatically responds to incoming calls and stores an incoming call response format corresponding to the caller number.

Details of the database 113 will be described with reference to FIG. The database 113 stores and manages a record number 31, a caller name 32, a caller number 33, and an incoming call response format 34 for each caller. The incoming call response format 34 for each caller has a response format of an answering response (with recording) and an answering response (without recording), and a different response format is stored and managed for each caller. A user of the telephone device 100 can set various information in the database 113 by using the dial key 111.

The database 113 stores and manages a caller number that permits execution of an absence response when the telephone device 100 receives an incoming call.

The telephone device 100 includes an external device IF (interface) unit 114, can receive a setting command from the security system 300, which is an external device, and set an “automatic response setting” state. The external device is not limited to a security system.

The control unit 105 controls each unit.

FIG. 2 is an operation flowchart of the telephone device 100 of the present invention.

The processing flow will be described below with reference to FIG.

First, it is a false busy sound that causes the telephone device 100 to automatically answer an incoming call and make the caller think that it is busy even when the incoming call cannot be answered due to the absence of an incoming call responder when an incoming call is received. A process flow of the telephone device 100 that realizes that the user of the telephone device 100 is not aware that the user of the telephone device 100 is away by sending a pseudo busy tone will be described.

When the telephone device 100 detects an operation of the automatic response setting key 112 (S200, YES), the telephone device 100 puts the device into an “automatic response setting” state (S201). Then, the telephone device 100 monitors whether there is an incoming call, for example, for 5 milliseconds, and when the incoming call is detected within the monitoring time (S202, YES), the telephone device 100 is set to “automatic response setting”. It is detected whether it is in a state (S203), and when it is in the “automatic response setting” state (S203, YES), it automatically answers the incoming call (S204). The caller ID extraction unit 104 extracts the caller number of the caller at the time of the incoming call and detects whether there is a caller number corresponding to the caller number 33 in the database 113 (S205). If the corresponding caller number does not exist as a result of the detection (S205, NO), the pseudo busy signal is generated by the pseudo busy signal generating unit 106 so that the telephone device 100 is in a telephone call. Then, the data is transmitted to the caller via the line interface unit 101 and the telephone line 200 (S206). Then, the telephone device 100 performs a ringing incoming call display on the display 109 (S207). By performing the above-described series of processing, a function that makes it impossible to recognize absence of an incoming call responder is realized by sending a pseudo-busy sound to make it appear that the caller is busy when receiving an incoming call. I can do it.

Next, the flow of the automatic response setting process in which the telephone device 100 automatically responds when an incoming call is received by a setting command (input signal) from an external device will be described.

When the telephone device 100 does not detect the operation of the automatic response setting key 112 (S200, NO), the telephone device 100 detects whether a setting command is received from an external device (S208). When the setting command is received (S208, YES), the apparatus is set in an “automatic response setting” state (S201).

Next, the flow of processing when the caller is an absence response permitter will be described.

When the user of the telephone device 100 cannot answer the incoming call and is in the “automatic answer setting” state, the telephone device 100 automatically answers when the incoming call is received (S204), and the calling ID extraction unit 104 sends the outgoing call when the incoming call is received. The original caller number is extracted, and it is detected whether there is a caller number corresponding to the caller number 33 in the database 113 (S205). As a result of the detection, if the corresponding caller number is present (S205, YES), the telephone device 100 displays the incoming call using the speaker 108 and the display 109 (S212). Then, the telephone device 100 executes the absence response according to the incoming call response format 34 for each caller in the database 113 (S213). The incoming call response at the incoming time is executed according to the content of the incoming call response format 34 for each caller registered in the same record as the caller number 33. For example, when there is an incoming call from the caller number 2345678901 to the telephone device 100 at the incoming time of 20:00, the caller number extracted by the caller ID extraction unit 104 is 2345678901, so that the record number 3 in the database 113 is recorded in the record number 3 described above. Since there is a caller number 33 that is the same as the caller number extracted by the caller ID extraction unit 104 and the incoming time is 20:00, the telephone device 100 executes an absence response (no recording).

As described above, according to the present invention, the telephone device 100 of the present invention automatically responds to the incoming call and is busy speaking even when the user of the telephone device 100 is not present at the time of the incoming call and cannot answer the incoming call. By sending sound to the sender, it is possible not to be absent.

In the present embodiment, the telephone device having a wired connection with the telephone line has been described as an example, but the present invention is not limited to this. For example, the telephone device may be a mobile phone or a wireless LAN phone by wireless communication. Furthermore, the telephone device may be a business phone system or a private branch exchange (PBX) extension telephone.
