FEATURES

Your TAD-1005Multi-UserDigital Telephone Answering System is a sophisticated, fully digital message center that groups recorded messages for up to four different users. The caller can choose to leave a message for a specific person or department. Or, you can record sixannounce-onlymessages for callers to hear.

Fully digital means the TAD stores all messages on a computer chip. This gives you advanced capabilities over tape-basedanswering machines. For example, you can save individual messages while the rest are deleted. Because your TAD is fully digital, there are no tape mechanisms to wear out and no tapes to bother with.

The TAD’s large 60-minutememory capacity means you can store a lot of messages. Its remote operation features let you use your TAD remotely from atouch-tonephone.

Its features include:

Four User Mailboxes — let you store and play back messages for up to four different users.

Date/Time Stamp — records the day and time each message was recorded.

Digitally-SynthesizedVoice— guides you through operation of the system.

Programmable Mailbox Security Code — lets you set your own security code for your private mailbox.

Announcement Only — lets you record up to six different announcements for callers to hear when you do not record incoming messages.

LED Message Counter — shows the number of messages the TAD has recorded.

Data Compression — automatically compresses periods of silence to allow up to 60 minutes of message storage.

Remote Operation — lets you use a touch-tone phone (or rotary phone and pocket tone dialer) to operate the TAD while you are away from your home or office.

Programmable Remote Operation Security Code — lets you set your own security code for remote operation.

Remote Answer-On— lets you call the TAD from a remote location and set it to answer calls.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your TAD to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is shown on the bottom of your TAD.

If you are using more than one device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phone might not ring and your TAD might not answer. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, remove one of the devices from the line.

4

FCC STATEMENT

Your TAD complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. Both numbers appear on the bottom of your TAD.

Note: You must not connect your TAD to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key phone systems

This device compiles with Part 15 of FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions:

This device may not cause harmful interference.

This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

INSTALLATION

Select a location for the TAD that is near a telephone jack and an AC outlet and is not in the way of normal activities.

Replace the battery if LO appears while the AC adapter is properly connected.

INSTALLING THE BACKUP BATTERY

If the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, a 9V backup battery (not supplied) saves the message groups, message counts, and the settings for the day, time, and security code. We recommend you use an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23553.

1.Remove the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the TAD by removing the screw on the cover’s tab, then lifting off the cover.

2.Snap the battery’s contacts firmly to the battery connector, then place the battery into the compartment.

Cautions:

Before you replace the battery, be sure the supplied adapter is securely connected to an AC outlet and to the jack on the back of the TAD. Otherwise, you might lose any stored information.

Always use a fresh battery of the required size and type.

Dispose of the battery promptly and properly. Do not bury or burn it.

3. Replace the cover.

6

43-745.fmPage 7 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:16 PM

CONNECTING THE AC ADAPTER

Caution: You must use a Class II AC adapter that supplies 9 volts of power, delivers at least 300 milliamps, and has a plug that properly fits the TAD’s9V DC jack with its center tip set to negative. The supplied adapter meets these specifications. Using an adapter that does not meet these specifications could damage the adapter and the TAD.

1.Insert the barrel plug of the supplied AC adapter into the 9V DC jack on the back of the TAD.

2.Plug the other end of the AC adapter into a standard AC outlet.

The TAD initializes itself and counts down from 59 to 0. The TAD then beeps and CL (clear) flashes on the display.

Note: Be sure not to press any of the TAD’s buttons while you are plugging the adapter into the AC outlet. If you accidentally press a button and do not hear the beep, reset the TAD by unplugging the adapter from the AC outlet and reinserting it.

CONNECTING TO THE TELEPHONE LINE

1.Unplug the telephone’s modular cord from the modular phone line jack and plug it into the TO TEL jack on the back of the TAD.

2.Plug one end of the supplied modular cord into the TO LINE jack on the back of the TAD.

3.Plug the cord’s other end into a modular phone line jack.

Note: If the phone line jack is not a modular jack, you must update the wiring. You can convert the wiring yourself, using jacks and adapters available at your local Radio Shack store. Or, you can let the phone company update the wiring for you.

The phone company will charge you for the installation of necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C.

Recording the Outgoing

Announcement

The TAD has a built-inoutgoing announcement that says “Please leave your message after the tone.”

You can record another announcement for the caller to hear when the TAD answers a call. The announcement can be up to 1 minute long.

Important Hints:

We recommend you write down your announcement before recording it. If you plan to record callers’ messages, ask for the caller’s name, phone number, and message.

Do not tell callers that you are not home. Instead, say that you cannot come to the phone right now.

The TAD can receive and save messages for up to four different users. If you set the TAD to do this (see “Using the Mailbox Feature”), your outgoing announcement should explain how to leave a message for a particular person.

43-745.fmPage 11 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:16 PM

For example:

“You have reached the Jones residence. We are unable to come to the phone right now, but you may press: 1 to leave a message for John, 2 to leave a message for Mary, 3 to leave a message for Susan, 4 to leave a message for Paul, or just wait for the beep, then leave your message.”

If you are recording an announcement for a business, you might use:

“Hello! You have reached XYZ Company. To leave a message for our Sales Department, press 1; for Manufacturing, press 2; for Customer Service, press 3; for Delivery, press 4. Or, you can leave a message after the beep.”

Follow these steps to record your outgoing announcement.

1.Press and hold OGM (outgoing message) until the answer indicator starts flashing.

2.Release OGM and record your announcement. Speak into the TAD from about 12 inches away.

Note: The outgoing message must be at least 2 seconds long for proper remote operation.

3.When you finish speaking, press ON/OFF. The TAD beeps and plays the announcement. The answer indicator stops flashing.

After the announcement plays, the TAD is ready to answer and record incoming messages.

BASIC OPERATION

Be sure you complete the procedures in “Installation” and “Preparation” before you begin using the TAD.

SETTING THE TAD TO ANSWER CALLS

Press ON/OFF.0 appears on the display. When the answer indicator is lit, the TAD is set to answer calls.

Notes:

If a battery is not installed or is weak, the display shows LO.

If you have set the TAD not to answer calls, you can use a remote phone to set the TAD to answer calls. See “Remote Answer-On.”

SETTING THE TAD TO RECORD MESSAGES

For a Single User

After the TAD answers a call, the outgoing announcement plays and the TAD sounds a beep. Then the caller can leave a message in the general message box. After the call is over (or the set message length elapses), the TAD beeps, stops recording, adds the date/time stamp, and resets to answer the next call.

Notes:

Many local phone companies use calling party control (CPC) to signal that the caller has hung up. Your TAD can recognize a CPC signal and release the line. If the TAD records phone company messages or dial tones, your local phone company probably does not use CPC.

When the caller hangs up, the maximum message length is reached, or there are more than 7 seconds of silence, the TAD hangs up and resets to answer the next call.

If the TAD reaches 100 percent full while a caller is leaving a message, the TAD plays the memory full announcement and hangs up. FL (full) flashes on the display.

13

43-745.fmPage 14 Friday, August 13, 1999 2:16 PM

If the TAD answers when the memory is full, it plays the memory full announcement and beeps, waits 7 seconds for any remote operation commands (see “Using Remote Operation Commands”), then hangs up. The TAD cannot record additional messages until you delete some of the old ones (see “Saving/Deleting Messages”).

Using the Mailbox Feature

The TAD is preset to record calls for a single user; however, the mailbox feature allows you to set up four separate, private mailboxes in addition to the general message mailbox. Callers can leave messages in mailboxes for specific individuals or departments or general messages for everyone to hear.

2.When the outgoing announcement begins, press *. The announcement stops, and the TAD beeps.

3.Press * again and enter the2-digitremote operation security code. (See “List of Remote Commands.”) The TAD beeps and announces “Press one to play back memos. Press two to play back messages. Press three to erase a message. Press four to record a new OGM. Press five to monitor the room. Press six to skip back one message. Press seven to skip the message. Press eight to repeat the message. Press nine to record a new memo.”

Note: If no beeps sound,re-enterthe code. If you enter the correct code, but the TAD does not accept it, the code might have reset to the default (00) because of a power failure. Try entering 00 as the security code. If this works, replace the TAD’s backup battery

and reset the remote operation security code (see “Setting the Day and Time” and “Setting the Remote Operation Security Code”).

4.Enter your selection.

Notes:

If you do not press a button within 7 seconds, the TAD hangs up.

If your telephone line has CPC service and you hang up while the TAD is playing back the messages, it stops playback immediately and resets to answer the next call.

If you do not have CPC service and you hang up while the TAD is playing back the messages, the TAD might not recognize that you hung up. If someone calls while the TAD continues to play the messages, the caller hears a busy signal. We recommend that you play all the messages or skip forward through the messages using remote commands until the TAD beeps twice before you hang up. This is to ensure you hear all your messages.

5.After all the messages play, the TAD beeps twice and repeats the list of remote commands. Enter a new command or hang up the phone.
