[AG-TECH] Doorbell for the grid?

Hi all,

We're hoping to use the AG in more of an "always on" environment for 
collaboration with users.  We'd be doing this at an experimental 
facility where people will generally be paying more attention to the 
facility equipment than a random user who may pop in to collaborate, 
monitor, etc...And so we're looking for something like a doorbell or 
telephone ringer that would alert someone at the facility that a remote 
collaborator may wish to chat with them.

Has anyone implemented something like this?  I can think of a couple of 
ways to go about it, but thought if anyone had a "standard" solution, we 
could just glom onto that.
