Remote Phones

You may call your system from any Touch Tone phone and "talk" to your OmniPro II, exactly as if you were at home, except that

you must enter your code (Master or Manager) to gain access to the OmniPro II.

To call your system from any touch tone phone, call your number. After 8 rings (or whatever you have "Rings Before Answer"

set to) your OmniPro II will answer and "beep" - See Set Up Dial. Press the digits of your code on the phone. The first digit must

be pressed within 3 seconds of the beep. You will hear the menu.

If you hear three beeps after entering the code, you have entered the wrong code. Try again. If you make a mistake while

entering the code, press the # key and then enter the code again. You only have three tries to enter a valid code.

A successful remote access is logged in the event log as a Remote Phone Access, along with the time, date of its occurrence, and

the code number used.

There are a number of setup items that control what you can do from a remote phone when you or anyone else calls into your

home - See Set Up, Dial.


Set Up Dial

The Set Up Dial menu is used to configure all of the telephone related items for the OmniPro II. To enter the Set Up Dial menu,

from the Setup menu, press the 4 (DIAL) key. Use the arrows to scroll through the items. For each item, the top line displays a

description of the item and its current setting. The bottom line shows the available ranges for your selections.

Phone numbers can be up to 24 characters long. The number is shown on the bottom line of the display. Press the OFF key to

enter a ' - ' into the number. Press the DAY key to specify a pause of 2 seconds (shown as a "T" on the display). Press the

NIGHT key to enter a ' # ' into the number. Enter a single ' - ' for no number.

Telephone Access

The Telephone Access item allows you to turn the local (in-house) and remote telephone control feature on and off.

If set to On, the OmniPro II will allow local and remote telephone access as described in Telephone Control. If set to Off, the

OmniPro II will not answer incoming calls ever, and will not work on the in house phones. Dial outs will still occur, and the

system will operate normally when the OmniPro II dials out.

If you do not have your OmniPro II connected to a phone line, set Telephone Access to Off to keep the system from displaying

"PHONE LINE DEAD". The default setting for Telephone Access is On.

Answer Outside Call

If you do not want your system to Answer Outside Call, set this item to No. The local (in-house) telephone control features will

still work, but the system will never answer an incoming call.

The default setting for Answer Outside Call is Yes.

Remote Commands

The Remote Commands Ok item allows you to prevent any commands from being issued from a remote telephone.

If Remote Commands Ok is set to Yes, the OmniPro II will allow all commands to be executed when called from a remote

telephone. If Remote Commands Ok is set to No, then lights, appliances, and the security system cannot be controlled from a

remote telephone that dials into your home.

You can issue commands from a local (in-house) phone with Remote Commands Ok set to Yes or No. The default setting is Yes.

Rings Before Answer

Your phone must ring this number of times before the OmniPro II will answer an incoming call to your phone.

To change Rings Before Answer, enter the new number from 1 to 15, then press the ' # ' key. The factory default setting is 8.

Dial Type

The Dial Type specifies the type of dialing used when the OmniPro II dials out. If you do not have Touch-Tone service, then Dial

Type must be set to Pulse.

The default Dial Type is Tone.

My Phone Number

My Phone Number is the phone number that will be announced when the OmniPro II dials out in the event of an alarm. It should

be set to the phone number of the premises where your system is installed.

To enter phone numbers, press the keypad keys 0 - 9. You can put in a dash (-) for legibility by pressing the Off key.

Press the ' # ' key after you have pressed all of the digits in the phone number. For example, to enter the number 555-1234, press

555 "OFF" 1234 #.

Dial Out Number 1

Dial Out Number 1 is one of the 8 numbers that are stored in the system. In the event of an alarm, these numbers are dialed in the

order that is set up in the Dial Out Order for the particular type of alarm. Dial out numbers 1 - 8 have On and Off times and days,

so that no time is wasted calling you at the office at night or on a Sunday if the alarm is activated.

For dial out number 1, you should enter your office number where you can be reached during working hours.

Enter the phone number the same way as described for My Phone Number.

You can cause the system to pause for two seconds between digits of the number by pressing the DAY key, which puts a T in the

number. Multiple Ts for longer pauses are allowed. You can also press the NIGHT key (*) and the AWAY key (#) for symbols

to get through some types of telephone or pocket beeper/pager systems.

To prevent a call waiting line from interfering with the dial out, you may use the call waiting cancel sequence at the beginning of

the number. The call waiting sequence is typically ' * 7 0 T ' (T = pause); however this may vary depending on your region.

If you wish to remove a phone number for a particular dial out number, press OFF then ' # ' (with the display showing a Dial Out

Number) to enter a single dash (-).

Phone numbers can be up to 24 digits.
