TAD-1009

Digital Telephone Answering System

43-781.fmPage 2 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

FEATURES

Your TAD-1009Digital Telephone Answering System is a sophisticated, fully digital message center.

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. Its features include:

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

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

Announcement-Only— lets you set the TAD to play a message for the caller, then automatically hang up without letting the caller leave a message.

Data Compression — automatically compresses periods of silence to allow up to 16 minutes of message storage.

Adjustable Number of Rings — lets you set the TAD to answer after two to nine rings.

Call Screening — lets you listen as a caller leaves a message so you can decide whether or not to answer the call.

Memo Recording — lets you leave messages for yourself or others in your home or office.

Two-WayRecording— lets you record both sides of your phone conversation.

Room Monitor — lets you listen from a remote phone to the room where the TAD is installed.

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 3-digit security code for remote operation.

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

Toll-Saver — lets you avoid unnecessary toll charges when you call bylong-distanceto check your messages.

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.

CONNECTING TO THE TELEPHONE LINE

illustration

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.

CONNECTING

THE AC ADAPTER

Caution: You must use a Class II AC adapter that supplies 12 volts of power, delivers at least 200 milliamps, and has a plug that properly fits the TAD’s12V 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.

illustration

1.Insert the small round plug of the supplied AC adapter into the 12V 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 the ON LINE, MEMO, and PLAY indicators flash six times. Then the TAD beeps once and the ON LINE indicator lights steadily.

illustration

6

43-781.fmPage 7 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

Notes:

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, reset the TAD by unplugging the adapter from the AC outlet and reinserting it.

The TAD cannot operate without AC power.

INSTALLING THE BACKUP BATTERY

If the AC power fails or you unplug the TAD, a 9V backup battery (not supplied) saves the messages and the settings for the day, time, and security code. We recommend you use an alkaline battery, such as Radio Shack Cat. No. 23-553.

1.To remove the battery compartment cover on the bottom of the TAD, remove the screw with a small Phillips screwdriver, then lift off the cover.

illustration

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

illustration

3.Replace the cover, then reinsert and tighten the screw.

Replace the battery if the LOW BATT. indicator turns on while the AC adapter is properly connected.

illustration

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.

RECORDING ANNOUNCEMENTS

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.

Follow these steps to record your outgoing announcement.

1.Press and hold OGM (outgoing message) until the TAD beeps and the ON LINE indicator flashes.

BASIC OPERATION

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

SETTING THE TAD TO ANSWER/NOT ANSWER CALLS

To set the TAD to answer calls, simply turn it on by pressing ON/OFF until the ON LINE indicator turns on.

illustration

Note: You can use a remote phone to set the TAD to answer calls. See “RemoteAnswer-On.”

To set the TAD to not answer calls, simply turn it off by pressing ON/OFF until the ON LINE indicator turns off.

Answering Calls

After the TAD answers a call, the outgoing announcement plays then the TAD sounds a beep and recording begins.

The caller can leave a message of up to 1 minute in length. After the call is over (when the caller hangs up or is silent for more than 7 seconds, or the maximum message length is reached), the TAD hangs up and resets to answer the next call. The PLAY indicator flashes to indicate an incoming message(s) has been recorded.

illustration

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.

If the TAD reaches 100 percent full while a caller is leaving a message, the TAD hangs up. When the next call comes in, the TAD plays the memory full announcement.

12

43-781.fmPage 13 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

If the caller hangs up or is silent for more than 7 seconds, or if the incoming message is less than 2 seconds in length, the TAD hangs up and resets to answer the next call, but does not record a message.

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 at least some of the old ones (see “Deleting Messages”).

USING THE ANNOUNCEMENT-ONLYFEATURE

Your TAD’s announcement-onlyfeature lets you set the TAD to play a message for the caller, then automatically hang up without letting the caller leave a message.

Note: When the TAD is set forannouncement-only,you cannot set it to record calls using the remote commands as described in “RemoteAnswer-On.”

Recording the

Announcement-Only

Message

1.Press ANN ONLY so the ANN indicator turns on, then press and holdOGM until the TAD beeps once and the ON LINE indicator flashes.

illustration

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

3.When you finish speaking, press ON/OFF. The TAD beeps once, theannouncement-onlymessage plays, then the ON LINE indicator stops flashing and the TAD beeps once more. The announcementonly feature is now on.

SCREENING CALLS

To screen your calls, let the TAD answer all calls for you, and listen to the caller’s message through the TAD’s speaker. If you decide to answer the call, pick up any phone connected to the same phone line as the TAD. The TAD stops recording and resets to answer the next call.

14

Note: If you pick up the phone just as the TAD answers, the TAD might not stop recording. If this happens, hang up the phone momentarily, then pick it up again.

RECORDING A 2-WAYPHONE CONVERSATION

You can record both sides of a conversation on any phone connected to the same phone line as the TAD.

At any time during the conversation, press and hold 2-WAY for about 2 seconds. The ON LINE indicator flashes, the TAD beeps once, and recording begins.

illustration

To stop recording, press ON/OFF or hang up the phone. The ON LINE indicator stops flashing, the TAD beeps once, and recording stops.

Note: It is illegal in some states to record a conversation without the consent of all parties to the conversation, including the phone company. Check the laws in your area before using thetwo-wayrecord feature.

To play back a recorded conversation, see “Playing 2-WayConversations.”

43-781.fmPage 15 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

43-781.fmPage 18 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

REMOTE OPERATION

While you are away from your home or office, you can use a touch-tonephone or a pulse (rotary) phone with a pocket tone dialer to enter your remote operation security code and do any of the following:

Set the TAD to answer calls

Listen to your messages

Record a new announcement

Record a memo

Delete individual messages

Monitor the room where the TAD is located

USING THE TOLL SAVER

If the TAD is set to answer in three rings or more and there are new messages (ones you have not played), the TAD answers two rings sooner than you set. For example, if you set it to answer in five rings and there are new messages, it will answer after three rings.

If there are no new messages (or you set the TAD to answer in two rings or less), it answers according to the number of rings you set. This gives you time to hang up before the TAD answers and avoid unnecessary longdistance charges.

To use the toll-saver,be sure the TAD is set to answer in three rings or more.

CHANGING THE

REMOTE CODE

To use your TAD from a remote telephone, you must first enter a 3-digitremote operation security code. The security code for your TAD is preset to 028. You can either use the preset code, or follow these steps to change it.

Note: In Steps 2 and 3, you must enter your selection within 7 seconds. Otherwise, the TAD beeps three times then exits the programming mode. If this happens, start over again at Step 1.

1.Press PGM/DEL. The TAD beeps once.

2.Press 2/REMOTE. The TAD beeps once.

illustration

3.Enter the new remote operation security code. The TAD beeps once after you press each button, then it beeps twice to indicate the new code has been stored in memory.

18

43-781.fmPage 19 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

REMOTE ANSWER-ON

If the TAD is connected to AC power, you can use any remote phone to turn the TAD on and set it to answer calls and record messages.

To remotely set the TAD to answer calls, dial your phone number and wait about 12 rings until the TAD answers. Then hang up the phone or proceed with remote operation beginning with Step 2 under “Using Remote Control Commands.”

After you hang up, the TAD answers calls and records incoming messages.

Note: When the TAD is set for an-nouncement-only,the TAD answers calls but does not record messages.

USING REMOTE

COMMANDS

Follow these steps to operate the TAD from a remote touch-tonephone.

1.Dial your phone number.

2.When the outgoing announcement begins, press . The announcement stops.

3.Enter the 3-digitremote operation security code. The TAD sounds three long beeps then announces “Press one to play back memos. Press two to play back messages. Press three to monitor the room. Press four to record a new outgoing message. Press six to skip back one message. Press seven to repeat the message. Press eight to erase messages. Press nine to skip the message. Press star () to stop playback or record.”

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 (028) because of low battery power. Try entering 028 as the security code. If this works, replace the TAD’s backup battery and reset the remote operation security code as soon as you return to the TAD’s location (see “Setting the Day and Time” and “Setting the Remote Operation Security Code”).

19

43-781.fmPage 20 Monday, August 16, 1999 7:41 AM

4.Within 7 seconds, enter your selection (see “List of Remote Commands”).

Notes:

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

To delete a message the first time you hear it, you must press 8 immediately after the caller’s message ends butbefore the TAD beeps to start the next message or function. However, if you are repeating a message, you can press 8 at any time before the message ends.

After you enter a remote command, the TAD is preset to beep twice after about 160 seconds, then automatically hang up after about 180 seconds if you do not enter another command. If you are listening to your messages and the TAD1009 beeps twice to warn you that it is about to hang up, you can press 7 to repeat the current message and reset the TAD-1009’stime cycle.

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 once before you hang up. This is to ensure you hear all your messages.

5.After completing the selected function, the TAD beeps once then plays the next recorded message (if you are playing back messages) or begins re-announcingthe list of selections. Enter a new command or hang up the phone.
