Now that we have outlined the problem with robocalls along with
the typical suggestions on how to stop them, we want to
introduce you to imp, the smart home call-filtering system for

With the imp’s smart call-filtering system, you are guaranteed
to never hear another ring from a robocall ever again. Bold
claim? Yes. But we can, and are happy to, back it up.
How imp actually blocks robocalls on landlines.
What if we told you that the best way to block robocalls on
landlines involved not trying to block at all? Sounds crazy,
Well, it’s true. imp successfully stops 100% of landline
robocalls because imp focuses 100% on calls you actually
So what does that mean?
imp works by pairing the contacts stored in your smartphone with
your landline (via the imp box, our custom hardware that plugs
into your landline). From there, imp checks each and every call
that comes in. If it is a number that imp recognizes, the phone
rings. Otherwise, imp silently handles the call for you, sending

your Greylist. Now whenever that individual calls, your phone
doesn’t ring but you are still able to receive a message from
