General

Simply clean your BIG Button + with a damp (not wet) cloth, or an antistatic wipe.

Never use household polish as this may damage the product.

Never use a dry cloth as this may cause static shock.

Do not open the BIG Button +. This could expose you to high voltages or other risks.

Never dispose of batteries in a fire. There is a serious risk of explosion and/or the release of highly toxic chemicals.

Environmental

Do not expose to direct sunlight.

We recommend that you do not place the product on antique/veneered wood to avoid damage.

Do not stand your product on carpets or other surfaces which generate fibres, or place it in locations preventing free flow of air over its surfaces.

Setting up

Follow these steps to set up your BIG Button + ready for use

Plan the location of your BIG Button +

The following points should be considered:

Situate your product close enough to the telephone socket so that the cable will reach.

Do not stand it on carpets or other similar surfaces that generate fibres as this may reduce the ringing sound and clog inside mechanisms.

Your BIG Button + can be positioned in three alternative ways:

Flat on a table surface.

Raised position on a table surface (using plinth).

Wall-mounted.See‘Wall-mounting’on page 31.

Warning

Your BIG Button + is only designed to be operated in a normal domestic or office environment. It should not be used in bathrooms or near water.
