- No Programming Needed!
When installed on an incoming telephone line before ALL telephone equipment
(extension wall jacks or multi-line phone systems), The Stick will protect
any voice or data call from being accessed by other telephone equipment
on the same line. Any phone device that goes "off-hook" during
a conversation or data transmission will receive a silent line.
Note: The Barge-In Protection feature will control only those phone/data devices connected directly to The Stick. For optimum performance and protection, it is recommended that all premise extension phones be wired into The Stick at either the Voice 1 or Voice 2 ports. Relax! This is not a difficult operation to perform.
See the section titled "Installation Procedures" for the easiest way to get the job done.
If the Call Override feature does not perform due to any line problems
with your local phone service provider, this standard feature will allow
you to override The Stick's tone detect and call routing operation.
Call Grab can be initiated from any touch tone or pulse extension phone by dialing "9" on the telephone key pad. When "9" is dialed, The Stick will immediately cease its call routing function. This feature is standard and will work regardless of the status of the "Call Override" feature.
Note: YOU must enable the "Pulse Detect" feature if you want to grab a call from a pulse dial phone.
Light-The LED on the front of The Stick demonstrates two functions-when
lit, it tells you the unit is powered up and while processing inbound
and outbound calls, the LED signals which port is being used.
A "one blink" pattern tells you a voice call is being processed, a repeating "two blink" pattern says The Stick has either detected CNG tones and is routing the call to your fax machine or a fax is outbound.
A repeating "three blink" pattern denotes the proper security access code has been monitored and a caller has been monitored and a caller has been routed to your computer modem or data is being transmitted outbound from your computer modem.
