Installation
Digital Security System
Your cordless phone uses a digital security system to protect against false
ringing, unauthorized access, and charges to your phone line.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Some cordless telephones operate at frequencies that
may cause or receive interference with nearby TVs, microwave ovens, and
VCRs. To minimize or prevent such interference, the base of the cordless
telephone should not be placed near or on top of a TV, microwave ovens, or
VCR. If such interference continues, move the cordless telephone farther away
from these appliances.
Certain other communications devices may also use the 1.9 GHz frequency
for communication, and, if not properly set, these devices may interfere with
each other and/or your new telephone. If you are concerned with interference,
please refer to the owner’s manual for these devices on how to properly set
channels to avoid interference. Typical devices that may use the 1.9 GHz
frequency for communication include wireless audio/video senders, wireless
computer networks, multi-handset cordless telephone systems, and some longrange cordless telephone systems.
Important Installation Guidelines
•
Avoid sources of noise and heat, such as motors, fluorescent lighting, microwave
ovens, heating appliances and direct sunlight.
•
Avoid areas of excessive dust, moisture and low temperature.
•
Avoid other cordless telephones or personal computers.
•
Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
•
Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless the jack is specifically designed for
wet locations.
•
Never touch non-insulated telephone wires or terminals, unless the telephone line has
been disconnected at the network interface.
•
Use caution when installing or modifying telephone lines.
