The Unregister Device and Delete Device buttons are used to remove a device registration from Kerauno. The Delete Device button will completely remove the device from the Devices menu and Kerauno will no longer recognize the Device's MAC address. This button is used to clean up old phones that are listed in the interface but are no longer in use. The Unregister Device button strips whatever extension is assigned to the phone and initiates a reboot. Kerauno will still recognize the device's MAC address so the phone can be reassigned or moved elsewhere.

To modify the time zone setting on a specific phone, select the desired time zone from the drop-down menu. To alter the BLF or speed dial keys, click the + Add Entry button under the BLF/Programmable Keys heading.

Speed Dial: Button can be configured to instantly dial a telephone number, extension, or system code (such as *74 - Ring Group Log-in or *86 – Voicemail). Pressing this key will instantly call the configured destination.

Transfer: When set, instantly transfers the current call to the extension assigned. The transfer button may be configured to a specific extension. When the button is pressed, the current active call transfers to the set extension.
