Can I change the ringing of my telephone?
For NEC DS1000, DS2000, and DSX Systems, press #725 (#RAL for Ringing Access Line). All buttons that are lines will light up. Press the line key you would like to change, and the indicator light will change to indicate the status. To make the phone ring, press the button until the light is solid green. Slow flashing green is a Night Ring, fast flashing green is a delay ring, and a red lamp indicates No ring, or Lamp Only. Press all appropriate line keys until they have the correct setting. To exit, press SPK button.
For NEC Elite, IPK, and Professional Systems, please contact our office or open a service ticket to request this change.
How do I change the main greeting of my voice mail’s automated attendant?
Each system is customized with your specific instructions. To receive a copy of your customized instructions, call our office or open a service ticket.
How come when I plug a phone into an empty jack, the phone doesn’t work?
Your digital telephone system requires a direct connection between the system cabinet and each telephone. The telephone itself has no intelligence. It receives all of its functionality from the system port it is wired into. When your system was installed, each telephone was connected to a designated jack. Your office may have additional spare jacks which are not connected to telephone system ports. If you would like to move or add an extension, please call our office or open a service ticket.
Can I move phones without having to re-record my voice mail greetings?
Per the note above, your digital telephone system requires a direct connection between the system cabinet and each telephone. Because the telephone itself has no intelligence, in order to switch phones (including voice mailbox info) we will need to physically move the wiring connection. If you would like to move an extension, please call our office or open a service ticket.
Can I temporarily change my outgoing message?
Press *6, plus your master access code. Press 1 for time and date programming. Enter the time in 24 hour format (HH:MM), followed by the date (MM:DD:YY). Press # to exit. It may take up to a minute for the keypad to display the new date and time.
Using your master code, you can add and delete users to the system. For complete instructions, download the user guide (see link at bottom of page). The information regarding user codes is found on page 11 of the printed version(page 15 of the pdf file).
Page 4 of the printed version (page 8 of the pdf file) has a useful list that you can keep somewhere safe to maintain a list of the codes assigned to your users. This will eliminate the guesswork when the time comes to delete or change a code.
Also, if you do add or delete users, please remember to update your access list at the Central Station, by calling 1 800 432-1429, so that they have an accurate list of people that are authorized to have access and updated info on who to notify in the event of an alarm. Be sure to have your passcode when you call. Or, if you prefer, call our office or open a service ticket.
The system is beeping. How do I make it stop?
This will give you a numeric code to identify the trouble (see note below on identifying trouble conditions). To acknowledge the trouble, press 9, then #. This will temporarily stop the beeping.
If your keypad displays a trouble light or a red triangle, press *2.
This will give you a numeric code to identify the trouble:
If the code comes up “1”, call our office or open a service ticket.
Does the system show a green “Ready” light or Check mark? If not, press # to identify the open zone. Refer to the keypad to find the zone, and close door/window. Ready light or check light should come green to indicate the system is ready to arm.
For complete instructions, refer to your user manual, or download a copy below. For most panels, press *1, plus master code (or access code if permitted). Enter 2 digit zone designation for bypassed zone, then #. The system should show a ready to arm indicator.
In the event of a false alarm, immediately contact the monitoring center at 1 800 432-1429, and provide the your name, business name (if a business), address, and a valid passcode.
