(cell) phone can call into a speaker Answered

Has anyone seen a solution where a (cell) phone can call into a speaker in a shop?

Like have a phone that auto answers and connects to a loud speaker in a shop floor?
Or another type of solution.

thanks

here is what I think you can do, if you have a cell phone:

They sell these auto answer devices. I bought one for my Dad (Jabra TOUR Bluetooth In-Car Speakerphone). I don't think you wanna get the exact model I got for Dad, cause it doesn't broadcast over the car stereo. Anyways you get one of these, and hook it to your cell via blutooth. Then wear the device on your shoulder (if you need 2way communication). It will automatically answer your call for you; and many models (not the one above) will broadcast the conversation/phone call over the car stereo. Now I don't know if it could also be made to broadcast over a home stereo that has a blutooth capability, but it seems likely. Either way you can get the phonecall to broadcast over some type of stereo. I'm pretty sure most stereos can be made to broadcast over a loud speaker almost as easily as an ordinary speaker. Otherwise use a really loud stereo...

The range (of these 'in-car-speakerphones) is not supposed to be that great, but if you read the reveiws, many peoply actually complain that when they leave these in their car they still take the calls from their cell when they are fairly far away inside the house. So you probably wanna get one of those...

You might be able to set up your answering machine to answer on the first ring and then hack the output to a speaker and mic.
