Wanting to send a page/intercom message to a group of VoIP phones as specified intervals.

Is it possible to schedule asterisk to send a page/intercom via cron or some other method? What would be the best way to do it?

Yes, that is posible. Require above average level in asterisk internal work understanding.

Plan is following:

  1. Do dialplan for intercom your phones(need support from phones/some headers)
  2. Test it from your extension, ensure intercome is ok.
  3. Create script to do new call for asterisk with one side Local/intercom_extension@intercom_context, other side Playback(your_message)
