RPS Line Monitor enables a control panel that shares a phone line with an answering machine to communicate with RPS at the central station even though the answering machine has answered the phone.
For the control panel to answer RPS there must be a ring count selected in the Answer Armed and/or Answer Disarmed parameters. The control panel follows programming to answer calls from RPS while in the appropriate armed state.
Program the Answer Armed and/or Answer Disarmed parameters in:
In some situations the Fax Machine or other device may seize the line on the first or second ring, and drop the RPS connection. In these cases it may be necessary to set the ring count of the shared device (Fax Machine or etc) to 3 or more to allow the line monitor to work as designed.
