At the end, I cleaned up my dial plan by removing the previous mess and
I'm using now ASTDB, as suggested, in the following way:

exten => 4000,1,Set(DB(alldevices/status)=OFF)
exten => 4000,2,Playback(service&de-activated)

exten => 4001,1,Set(DB(alldevices/status)=ON)
exten => 4001,2,Playback(service&activated)

exten => 2000,1,GotoIf($[${DB(alldevices/status)}=ON]?2001,1:2002,1)

exten => 2001,1,Dial(SIP/Dial(SIP/deviceA&SIP/deviceB&SIP/deviceC)

exten => 2002,1,Dial(SIP/Dial(SIP/deviceA&SIP/deviceB)
