ADDITIONAL SAFETY NOTES FOR CANADIAN USERS
The following items are included as part of the CS-03 Requirements.
The standard connecting arrangement for the equipment is CA11A. This
product meets the applicable Industry Canada technical specifications.
NOTE: The Canadian Department of Communications label identifies
certified equipment. This certification means that the equipment meets
certain telecommunications network protective operational and safety
requirements. The Department does not guarantee that the equipment
will operate to the user’s satisfaction. Before installing this equipment,
users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities
of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be
installed using an acceptable method of connection. In some cases, the
company’s inside wiring associated with a single line individual service
may be extended by means of a certified connector assembly (telephone
extension cord). The customer should be aware that compliance
with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of service in
some situations. Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any
repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment
malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to
request the user disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground
connections of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic
water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution
may be particularly important in rural areas.
Warning: Users should not attempt to make such connections
themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection
authority, or electrician, as appropriate. The Ringer Equivalent Number is
an indication of the maximum number of terminals allowed to be
connected to a telephone interface. The termination on an interface may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the requirement
that the sum of the Ringer Equivalent Number of all the devices not
exceed five.

E. Baby Sound Monitor (AMBX™)
A plug and jack used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring
and telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68
rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A compliant telephone
cord and modular plug, RJ11 USOC, is provided with this product. It
is designed to be connected to a compatible modular jack that is also
compliant. See installation instructions for details.
Place this monitor near your infant, and it
will transmit a signal to the AlertMaster

This AL10 Notification System complies with Part 68 of the FCC
rules and the requirements adopted by the ACTA. On the bottom of this
equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a product
identifier in the format US: AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this number
must be provided to the telephone company.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be
connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a telephone line may
result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most
but not all areas, the sum of RENs should not exceed five (5.0). To be
certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as
determined by the total RENs, contact the local telephone company. For
products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part
of the product identifier that has the format US: AAAEQ##TXXXX. The
digits represented by ## are the REN without a decimal point (e.g., 03 is
a REN of 0.3). For earlier products, the REN is separately shown on the
label.
If this telephone equipment causes harm to the telephone network,
the telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary
discontinuance of service may be required. But if advance notice isn’t
practical, the telephone company will notify the customer as soon as
possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint with
the FCC if you believe it is necessary.

This device complies with part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is
subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Your AL10 Notification System has been tested and found to
comply with the limits of a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of
FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy
and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is
no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation;
if this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, you are encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the
following measures:
1. Where it can be done safely, reorient the receiving television or radio
antenna.
2. To the extent possible, relocate the television, radio or other receiver
with respect to the telephone equipment. (This increases the separation
between the telephone equipment and the receiver.)
3. Connect the telephone equipment into an outlet on a circuit difference
from that to which the television, radio, or other receiver is connected.
4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
