No Battery Backup Required — you can
connect the dialer to your alarm system’s
auxiliary battery power, so it will work even if
main AC power is lost.
Mounting Options — you can place the dialer on a desk, shelf, or table, or mount it on
a wall.
This dialer has been tested and found to
comply with all applicable UL and FCC standards.
Warning: To prevent fire or shock hazard,
do not expose this product to rain or moisture.
This dialer is UL classified under Standard
Number 1459 for fire and risk of electric
shock.
FCC STATEMENT
Your auto dialer complies with Part 68 of
FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide
the FCC registration number and the REN to
your telephone company.
Note: You must not connect your auto dialer
to:
• coin-operated systems
• party-line systems
• most electronic key telephone systems
We have designed your auto dialer to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However,
each auto dialer (and each device, such as a
telephone or answering machine) that you
connect to the telephone line draws power
from the telephone line. We refer to this power draw as the device's ringer equivalence
number, or REN, located on the bottom of
your auto dialer. This dialer has a REN of 0,
so it places no load on the phone line.
If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all of the RENs. If the
total is more than five (three in rural areas),
your telephones might not ring. If ringer operation is impaired, remove a device from the
line.
In the unlikely event that your phone causes
problems on the phone line, the phone company can temporarily discontinue your service. If this happens, the phone company
attempts to notify you in advance. If advance
notice is not practical, the phone company
notifies you as soon as possible and advises
you of your right to file a complaint with the
FCC.
Also, the phone company can make changes
to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of this
telephone. The telephone company notifies
you of these changes in advance, so you can
take the necessary steps to prevent interruption of your telephone service.
Lightning
Your telephone has built-in protection circuits
to reduce the risk of damage from surges in
telephone line and power line current. These
protection circuits meet or exceed the FCC
requirements. However, lightning striking the
telephone or power lines can damage your
telephone.
Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has severe
electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug
your phone when storms approach to reduce
the possibility of damage.

“Connecting To Auxiliary Power” on
Page 7.
Select a location for the dialer that is:
•
•
•
•
near an AC outlet
near a modular phone line jack
near the alarm system
out of an intruder’s sight and hearing
If the selected 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 RadioShack
store. Or, you can let the phone company update the wiring for you. The USOC number of
the jack to be installed is RJ11C (or RJ11W
for a wall jack).
CONNECTING TO THE
PHONE LINE
• If you connect the dialer to a siren or
alarm output but do not connect it to
your alarm system’s auxiliary battery
power (see “Connecting To Auxiliary
Power” on Page 7), it only receives
power from the alarm system’s siren or
alarm output while the alarm is sounding. In this case, if AC power is disconnected, the dialer only operates while
the alarm is sounding.
• Use the wire size recommended by your
alarm system’s manufacturer to make
the connections.
Connecting to Siren or
Alarm Outputs
1. Insert the supplied phone cord’s modular plug into a modular phone jack. Then
plug the other end into the dialer’s jack.

Connecting To Auxiliary Power
If AC power fails and you connected the dialer to your alarm system’s auxiliary battery
power, the alarm system’s battery powers
the dialer instead.
MOUNTING THE DIALER ON
A WALL
To mount the dialer directly on a wall, you
need two wood screws (not supplied) with
heads that fit into the keyhole slots on the
bottom of the dialer.
1. Using the holes on the back of the dialer
as a guide, mark the mounting screw
locations 31/8 inches apart on the wall.
Although your dialer is normally powered by
an AC adapter, if your alarm system has auxiliary battery power terminals, you should
connect your dialer to them in case AC power is lost during an emergency.
2. Drill a hole in the wall at each marked
location.
Caution: Your alarm system’s auxiliary battery must supply 12 volts and deliver at least
200 mA. Using an auxiliary battery that does
not meet these specifications could damage
the dialer, the battery, or the alarm system.
Refer to your alarm system’s owner’s manual
for more information about its auxiliary battery power system.
4. Align the keyhole slots on the back of
the dialer with the screw heads in the
wall, then slide the dialer down onto the
screws until it is secure.
3. Thread a screw into each hole until the
1
screw’s head extends about /8 inch
from the wall.
Refer to the owner’s manual provided with
your alarm system to determine the correct
connections, then follow these steps to connect the dialer to your alarm system’s auxiliary battery power.

ˆ Set-up
When you connect the dialer to an alarm system and the alarm system is violated, the dialer automatically dials the phone numbers
you stored in memory and plays the message you recorded.
STORING PHONE NUMBERS
IN MEMORY
When the dialer is activated, it resets your
phone line connection, then pauses 15 seconds to disconnect any answering machine
on your phone line. Then the dialer dials the
first number you stored in it and waits 6 rings
for the call to be answered.
Important:
You can store up to three numbers to be dialed in the event of an alarm.
If someone answers, the dialer sounds five
single tones (if the alarm is a fire alarm) or
five high-low sounds (if the alarm is a burglar
alarm), then plays your outgoing message if
you recorded one. If no one answers, the dialer then calls the next stored number and
repeats this sequence.
Notes:
• If you set the dialer to dial each stored
number only one time (see “Selecting
the Number of Dial Attempts” on
Page 9), it stops after dialing the third
number, even if no one answered. If you
set the dialer to dial each stored number
three times, it repeats the above
sequence for all unanswered numbers
until either someone answers or all three
numbers have been dialed three times.
• If the dialer dials a number and detects a
busy signal, it redials that number only if
you set the dialer to dial each stored
number three times.
• If your alarm system indicates that there
is a fire alarm and a burglar alarm at the
same time, the dialer sounds only the
signal for a fire alarm.
8
Set-up
• We recommend you program the dialer
to call a friend who can determine if
there is a real problem. The person can
then call the police, if necessary, or call
you back to see if everything is fine. You
should not program the dialer to dial the
police directly, unless your local police
have a special line for automatic telephone dialers.
• If you want to program the dialer to call
your local police and fire department,
check with them first. Some police and
fire departments do not accept calls
from automatic telephone dialers. If your
police or fire department does not
accept calls from automatic dialing
equipment, you can program it to call a
friend or private security service who
can notify the police or fire department,
if necessary.
• If you want to program the dialer to call a
private security service, note that some
private security services charge a fee to
accept calls from automatic dialing
equipment. For more information, call
the private security services in your
area.
1. Lift the cover on the dialer, then press
STORE.
2. Press 1, 2, or 3 to select the memory
location for the number, and the order in
which the number will be called.
3. Enter the phone number (up to 16 digits).
If you make a mistake while entering the
number, press STORE then begin again
from Step 2.
cating a fire. Notify the fire department. If you
heard five high-low tones at the start of this
message, our alarm is indicating a burglary.
Notify the police department.”
1. Press RECORD. The RECORD indicator
lights.
4. Press STORE. The dialer sounds a 1second beep.
2. Speak clearly in a normal voice about 12
inches away from the microphone on the
front of the dialer.
5. Repeat Steps 1–4 to enter more numbers.
The RECORD indicator turns off after 20
seconds.
Notes:
• If you try to store more than 16 digits,
the dialer beeps 4 times and does not
store the number.
3. If you finish your message before the
RECORD indicator turns off, press
RECORD to stop recording.
• If you use the dialer on a phone system
that requires you to dial an access code
for an outside line, you should program
a pause after the access code to allow
time for the outside line to connect. To
program a 2-second pause between digits, press PLAY/PAUSE at the point in the
dialing sequence where you need to
pause.
You can hear the outgoing message by setting MONITOR to IN, then pressing PLAY/
PAUSE. To stop playback before the message ends, press PLAY/PAUSE again.
Pressing PLAY/PAUSE counts as one of
the 16 digits available in a memory location.
To replace a number, simply store a new one
in its place.
To clear a number from memory, repeat
Steps 1, 2, and 4 only.
RECORDING AN OUTGOING
MESSAGE
Your outgoing message can be up to 20 seconds long. Here is a typical outgoing message:
“This is the John Doe residence at 812 Maple Street. If you heard five single tones at
the start of this message, our alarm is indi-
SELECTING THE NUMBER
OF DIAL ATTEMPTS
The dialer is preset to call each stored number once. However, you can set the dialer so
it calls each number up to three times until a
call to that number has been answered.
To change the currently set number of dial
attempts, pull up on the dialer’s cover, press
TEST, then press 0.
The dialer sounds a tone when you have set
it to call three times. The dialer does not
sound a tone when you set it to call only one
time.
TESTING THE DIALER
You can test the dialer to make sure it correctly dials the numbers and plays the outgoing message.

Notes:
sage you selected. If there is no answer, the
dialer hangs up after 6 rings and tries the
next number in sequence. After it finishes
with the last number, the dialer exits the test
mode and sounds three short beeps. The dialer plays the entire message, even if the call
is ended by the person or device.
• Before you test the dialer, call each of
the numbers that the dialer will dial and
notify them about the test.
• Test the dialer only during off-peak
hours, such as early morning or late
evening.
LISTENING TO THE
OUTGOING MESSAGE
To test the dialer, press TEST then the number for the memory location you want to test
(1, 2, or 3).
You can set the dialer so you can hear it dial
a number and play the outgoing message,
and hear any response to the call. This is
handy if you want to monitor the dialer when
you test it. Or, if you are using a burglar
alarm system with a silent alarm, you might
want to set the dialer so that it cannot be
heard.
Notes:
• If you want to hear the outgoing message and any response, you can set the
dialer so it monitors the test (see “Listening to the Outgoing Message” on
Page 10).
To set the dialer so you can hear the outgoing message and any response, set MONITOR on the side of the dialer to IN.
• If you select a memory location that
does not have a phone number stored in
it, the dialer sounds three short beeps.
Set MONITOR to OUT to mute the dialer.
The dialer dials the number. If the call is answered, the dialer plays the outgoing mes-
ˆ Care
Keep the auto dialer dry; if it gets wet, wipe it
dry immediately. Use and store the auto dialer only in normal temperature environments.
Handle the auto dialer carefully; do not drop
it. Keep the auto dialer away from dust and
dirt, and wipe it with a damp cloth occasionally to keep it looking new.
10
Modifying or tampering with the auto dialer’s
internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate its warranty and
void your FCC authorization to operate it. If
your auto dialer is not performing as it
should, take it to your local RadioShack store
for assistance. If the trouble is affecting the
telephone lines, the phone company can ask
you to disconnect your auto dialer until you
have resolved the problem.
