If your users are bringing their handsets home with them, they will likely require an external power cord. In an office environment phones are typically powered via their Ethernet connection (power over Ethernet, or POE), but most people do not have POE at home, in which case an external power cord is required. If you do not have a power cord, then refer to the sections above. Also, note that most office phones are configured with a VLAN ID. If a phone is being moved to a home, the VLAN ID will need to be removed; this can be achieved via the menus on the phone. The location within the menu and name of the setting will vary by manufacturer but are usually found under the Network and/or Ethernet settings menu.
