Getting Started

The Quick Start Guide , included in the box, provides simple, step-by-step instructions on how to set up your equipment and test the coverage range of your Lifeline Help Button. If you have any questions, please contact

Lifeline.

Lifeline Help Button

Your Lifeline Help Button provides a direct connection to Lifeline and allows you to summon assistance 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When you press your Lifeline Help Button, it transmits a signal to your Lifeline

Cordless Phone. The phone automatically calls the Lifeline Response

Center, and a Personal Response Associate will come on the line to see if you need assistance.

?

Always wear your Lifeline Help Button.

Your Lifeline Help Button is waterproof and should be worn at all times – even when bathing and sleeping. It is your direct connection to Lifeline.

Important Reminders

• Wear your Lifeline Help Button in your home at all times, especially while sleeping and bathing. The bathroom is often the place where people fall and need help.

• Your Lifeline Help Button is waterproof and should be worn in the shower or bath.

• Your Lifeline Help Button is not a microphone, so you don’t talk into it. Instead, press the Help Button and speak into the handset or in the direction of the base speakerphone or optional Voice Extension.

• You may order additional Lifeline Help Buttons for other members of your household. For more information, please contact Lifeline.

• Be sure to test the range of your Lifeline Help Button when you set up the system. See the Quick Start Guide for instructions.

4 Lifeline Service

• Test your Lifeline Help Button every month by pressing it and placing a check-in call to the Lifeline Response Center. See page 22 for instructions.

• Do not remove the label on the back of your Lifeline Help Button.

The label ensures that your Lifeline Help Button remains waterproof.

If the label is removed, peeling off, or damaged in any way, please contact Lifeline.

• Do not put your Lifeline Help Button through the clothes washer, dryer or dishwasher.

• Your Lifeline Help Button can only be serviced in the factory. There are no user-replaceable parts inside of it.

• Like all cordless phones, your Lifeline Cordless Phone requires AC power to operate. However, in the event of a power outage, your

Lifeline Cordless Phone will provide up to 1 hour of backup power for regular phone calls and 30 hours of backup power for Help Calls. Your

Lifeline Service will not work if there is a power outage of more than 30 hours.

• It is typically recommended that Lifeline subscribers also have a corded phone in their home, which can function throughout a power outage.

• The Lifeline Cordless Phone relies on electrical and telephone service that is wholly beyond the control of Lifeline. If your telephone service is out of order or disconnected, your equipment will not operate.

• If you have another phone in a different area of your home and it is left off-hook, your Lifeline Cordless Phone will not be able to place a Help

Call. To make sure that your Lifeline Cordless Phone can place a Help

Call when needed, plug the other phone(s) into the phone accessory jack on the back of your Lifeline Cordless Phone’s base. If you need assistance, please call Lifeline.

5

Responders and People to Notify

As a Lifeline subscriber, you should identify one or more people who will agree to respond in the event of an incident. These are called

Responders . Typically, Responders are family members, friends or neighbors who are nearby and can come to assist you.

Often, there are other people who are not available to assist you but who would like to know that you needed assistance. These could be family members in another area or healthcare professionals who are involved in your care. These people are referred to as People to Notify .

Choosing a Responder

It is best to choose a Responder who:

• Has a key to your home or knows where one is located

(perhaps in a key lockbox).

• Could come to help you at different times of the day or night.

• Lives or works within 10 minutes of where you live.

• Is physically capable of assisting you if you need help.

Information Lifeline Needs About Responders

Please ensure that Lifeline has the following information about each person acting as a Responder. Also, record the information inside the front cover of this User’s Manual:

• Name

• Phone numbers – home, work and cell phone

• Whether or not the Responder has a key to your home

A Personal Response Associate will speak to you through the phone’s built-in speaker and microphone. If you are using the optional Voice

Response Associate. Press the Talk key on the handset and speak into it as you normally would.

?

If you cannot speak or if you cannot be heard, the Personal Response

3. The Lifeline Response Center will listen to you and send help if needed.

The Personal Response Associate will speak with you and send the help you want. If you are unable to speak or if the Personal Response

Associate cannot clearly hear you, Responders will be called in the order that you listed them when you signed up with Lifeline. If you accidently press your Lifeline Help Button, just tell the Personal Response Associate that you are okay.

4. Lifeline will send help.

If needed, Lifeline will contact your Responders until they reach someone who is available to help you. If Lifeline cannot reach any of your Responders, they will dispatch emergency services to your home.

Check-in Call

Lifeline wants you to check in every month to confirm that your phone and your Lifeline Help Button are working normally.

?

The monthly check-in call is the ideal time to tell Lifeline about any changes to your health or contact information.

1. Press your Lifeline Help Button just as you would for a Help Call.

2. Wait for the Personal Response Associate to speak to you. Explain that you are just checking in and do not need assistance.

3. Be sure to tell the Personal Response Associate about any changes regarding your household, phone numbers, health conditions, medications or the list of people you want to respond or to be notified in case of an incident.

Check-in Reminder

If you have not pressed your Lifeline Help Button for 32 consecutive days, your Lifeline Cordless Phone will remind you to check in with the Lifeline

Response Center. The yellow Reset button on the phone will start blinking, and both the phone base and the handset will display: “ Time to

Test Your Lifeline.

?

If you are on the telephone, please complete your call and hang up before performing the monthly check-in.

When you press the Reset button or hang up the phone, your phone will play a message saying: “ Time to test your Lifeline. Please press the Lifeline button you are wearing. Thank you. This is a recording.

When you hear this message, please press your Lifeline Help Button and let the Personal Response Associate know that you are checking in and do not need any help.

Cleaning

Lifeline Help Button

Your Lifeline Help Button is completely waterproof, so you can submerge it in warm water for easy cleaning. But first, please turn off your Lifeline

Cordless Phone to avoid sending a false Help Call.

1. Move the power switch on the back of the phone base to the

OFF position.

2. Wash your wrist strap or adjustable neck cord with a mild liquid dishwashing detergent.

3. Gently wipe your Lifeline Help Button with an isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol wipe or a cotton pad moistened with alcohol. Do not soak it in the alcohol, however.

4. Blot excess moisture with a towel and allow the Help Button to air-dry.

5. Be sure to move the power switch on the back of the phone base to the ON position.

6. Test your system by pressing your Lifeline Help Button. Tell the

Personal Response Associate that you are just testing your equipment after cleaning.

42 Tips and Techniques

Phone Base and Handset

You should keep your equipment free of dust by occasionally wiping it with a soft cotton cloth. If additional cleaning is required, you should first turn off the power and then disconnect the cords from the wall. This will prevent false button presses and possible damage to the equipment.

1. Slide the power switch to the OFF position and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Unplug the telephone cord from the wall jack.

2. Slightly dampen a soft cloth with a mild all-purpose cleaner and gently wipe the surfaces clean. Never use detergents, excess water, treated cloths or sprays. Do not spray or pour any cleaner directly onto the equipment, as excessive moisture will damage it. Do not use aerosols on or near the phone base.

3. Reconnect the power cord to the electrical outlet, reconnect the telephone cord to the wall jack, and then turn the power switch back to ON.

4. Test your system by pressing your Lifeline Help Button. Tell the

Personal Response Associate that you are just testing your equipment after cleaning.

?

Remember to turn the power OFF and disconnect all cords before cleaning.

?

Do not spray cleaners directly onto equipment because moisture could get inside and cause damage.

43

Turning On Enunciated Dialing

Your Lifeline Cordless Phone has the ability to announce each number as it is pressed. With this feature, you can be sure that you are dialing correctly. To turn the enunciated dialing feature on or off, please follow these instructions:

To turn ON enunciated dialing:

1. Press these keys on the phone base: “ ##051# .”

2. The display will show: “ ##051# Voice Keys On .”

3. After 10 seconds, the phone will return to its normal state and

“ Ready ” will be displayed.

4. When you dial your next call, each key that you press will be audibly announced. That is, you will hear the word “ one ,” instead of a tone for the number one.

To turn OFF enunciated dialing:

1. Press these keys on the phone base: “ ##050# .”

2. The display will show: “ ##050# Voice Keys Off .”

3. After 10 seconds, the phone will return to its normal state and

“ Ready ” will be displayed.

4. When you dial your next call, you will hear a tone for each key that you dial.

If you have any questions, please contact Lifeline.

Safety Information

• The phone base, additional handset and optional Voice Extension must be placed in an indoor living area.

• Take care not to block the microphone hole located on the bottom of the phone base and the optional Voice Extension. For example, do not place them on a tablecloth or padded surface.

• Make sure that you do not plug your equipment into an electrical outlet that is controlled by a wall switch, because someone could accidentally turn off the power.

• Make sure that the phone base is away from any clutter or any object that might block its ability to receive a signal from your Lifeline Help

Button. The phone should not be placed on or near your refrigerator or any type of metal cabinet or bookcase, since this may limit the effective range of the Lifeline Help Button.

Your Telephone Service and Your Philips Lifeline Service . This information is also available online at www.lifelinesys.com/phoneservice.

Can the Lifeline Service be used if I have broadband or Voice-over-IP

(VoIP) phone service?

The Lifeline Service is compatible with a wide variety of phone services, including broadband and VoIP. However, your Lifeline Service will work better with some telephones services than others. It is important that you understand how your Lifeline Service will work with your current phone service and any other phone service you may later switch to.

Be sure to read the pamphlet we have included with your communicator:

Important Information Regarding Your Telephone Service and Your Philips

Lifeline Service . This information is also available online at www.lifelinesys.com/phoneservice.

Can I plug my communicator into an RJ31X jack?

Yes, if your house has been wired with a special phone jack (RJ31X), you can connect the Philips Lifeline Cordless Phone Communicator to it.

However, this requires a special phone cord which was not included with the phone. Please contact Lifeline for assistance.

52 Frequently Asked Questions

Can two people in the same household both have the Lifeline Service?

Yes, please contact Lifeline for more information.

Can I have more than one Lifeline Help Button for myself?

No, we have learned that subscribers are best served by having one

Lifeline Help Button.

Can I wear my Lifeline Help Button in the shower or bath?

Yes, the Lifeline Help Button is completely waterproof and should be worn at all times. But please note that the Lifeline Help Button cannot send a signal when it is fully submerged under water.

Can I wear my Lifeline Help Button in bed?

Yes, we ask that you wear your Lifeline Help Button at all times whenever you are in your home. The button was designed to provide adequate protection against sending an accidental signal, even if you roll over on it.

What if I accidentally hit my Lifeline Help Button?

If you accidentally press your Lifeline Help Button, a Personal Response

Associate will respond to your call to make sure that everything is okay.

Just tell the Associate that it was pressed accidentally and that you do not need assistance. Don’t be concerned that you are bothering Lifeline; we just want to be sure that you are all right.

Does the Lifeline Help Button have a battery?

Yes, each Lifeline Help Button has a battery that can only be replaced at the factory. The Lifeline Help Button will automatically send a signal to Lifeline when the battery needs to be replaced, and someone from

Lifeline will contact you about the replacement.

What’s the difference between the “Slimline” and “Classic” Help Buttons?

The difference between the Slimline ™ and the Classic ™ Lifeline Help

Buttons is their appearance. Additionally, the “Slimline” Help Button can be worn on the wrist with a strap. The functionality of both is the same.

How can I get a Lifeline Help Button on a wrist strap?

When you received your Philips Lifeline Cordless Phone Communicator, you may have been given a neck cord, since that is the most popular way to wear the Lifeline Help Button. If you would like to order a wrist strap, please contact Lifeline.

53

Your Lifeline Cordless Phone

Will the phone work during a power outage?

Your Lifeline Cordless Phone has battery backup power, which means that it can function during a power outage, provided that your phone service is working. It will provide up to 30 hours of backup power for Help Calls and up to one hour for regular phone calls. For further information, please refer to page 49.

How can I be sure my Lifeline Cordless Phone is working?

Your phone is working properly as long as the green power Indicator on the base is lit and the Reset button is not blinking. If the yellow Reset button is blinking, please press the Reset button to hear what is wrong.

How far away from the phone will the Lifeline Help Button work?

Your Help Button provides coverage inside your home and may provide coverage in the area immediately outside (yard, porch, etc.). When you set up your Lifeline Cordless Phone, you should test your Lifeline Help

Button’s signal range to determine which areas of your home are covered.

See the Quick Start Guide for instructions.

Why do I need to place the phone and the Voice Extension on a hard surface?

It is important to place the phone and optional Voice Extension on a hard surface because the microphones that are used to hear your voice are located on the bottom. A hard surface is required in order to provide the best possible sound quality.

Why is the handset beeping?

The Find button on the phone base may have been pressed. When Find is pressed, the handset will beep for up to 5 minutes to help you locate it.

Press any key on the handset to stop the beeping.

Why don’t I hear the handset beeping after pressing the Find button?

There are a few possible explanations. The handset may be under a pillow, blanket or cushion that is muffling the sound. Or, the handset may be sitting in the optional charger. Or, the handset battery may be completely discharged.

54 Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to change batteries?

Lifeline will contact you when the battery in the phone base needs to be replaced. If the handset or Voice Extension cannot take a charge, please contact Lifeline.

Is there a difference between the Help Button on the phone base and my Lifeline Help Button?

No, they will both place calls to the Lifeline Response Center when pressed. The Lifeline Button that you wear around your neck (or on your wrist) is always with you, so it is more convenient to use since you are not always near your phone base.

Do I need to test my Lifeline Cordless Phone?

Lifeline wants you to check in once a month by pressing your Lifeline Help

Button to confirm that your phone and your Help Button are working normally. If you forget to check in, the phone will remind you. Please refer to page 22.

Are my two handsets from Philips Lifeline interchangeable?

Yes, you can store and charge either handset on the phone base or in the optional charger.

Why isn’t my new handset working?

You may have to “introduce” the new handset to your phone. Please contact Lifeline for assistance.

Why isn’t the Voice Extension working?

You may have to “introduce” the Voice Extension to your phone. Please contact Lifeline for assistance.

55

Calling for Help

What happens if I make a Help Call and the Lifeline Response Center can’t hear me?

The Personal Response Associate will probably be able to hear you through the highly sensitive microphone. However, if you cannot be heard or if you cannot speak, Lifeline will place another call to your home. If no one answers, help will be sent quickly.

Do I use the Lifeline Help Button to speak with Lifeline?

No, the Lifeline Help Button is not a microphone. You do not speak into it. Rather, the button sends a signal to the phone, which then calls Lifeline.

You should speak into the handset or in the direction of the phone base or the optional Voice Extension.

What happens if I press my Lifeline Help Button and can’t hear the

Personal Response Associate?

Stay where you are. The Personal Response Associate will probably be able to hear you, but if not, he or she will place another call to your home.

If no one answers, help will be sent quickly.

Monthly Check-in Call

Do I have to check in on a particular day or time?

No, you can check in at any time that is convenient for you. Many people find it helpful to select the date of their birthday to make their check-in call. For example, if your birthday is January 8th, you might make your check-in call on the 8th of every month.

How will I remember when it is time for the monthly check-in?

Your Lifeline Cordless Phone will remind you. If you have gone 32 consecutive days without pressing your Lifeline Help Button, the yellow

Reset button on the phone will start blinking, and both the phone base and the handset will display: “ Time to Test Your Lifeline.

56 Frequently Asked Questions

Answering Telephone Calls

Why is the Talk button on the handset blinking?

Why is the Speaker button on the phone base blinking?

You have an incoming phone call. If you do not hear a telephone ring, please check the volume level on the phone base and the handset.

Why does the display say “ Caller Unknown ”?

You have an incoming call, but you do not have Caller ID service.

Why does the display say “ Private Caller ”?

Waiting, press the Hold button to put your primary phone call on hold and answer a second incoming call.

Why do I hear beeping when I’m on the phone?

If you subscribe to Call Waiting, you will hear a Call Waiting tone when another call comes in during a conversation.

You may have waited too long before pressing the Hold button, and the other party simply hung up.

Where is the Flash button for Call Waiting?

The Hold button is the same as a Flash button on other phones.

57

Charging the Handset

How can I be sure that the handset is charged?

If “ Ready ” is displayed on the handset, then it is charged and ready for use. If the handset battery needs to be recharged, “ Low Battery ” will be displayed on the handset, and the yellow Reset button on the phone base will start blinking.

Why isn’t the handset recharging?

Make sure that the handset is correctly positioned in the phone base cradle or the optional charger. When the handset is correctly positioned, you will hear a short beep and the orange charge indicator will light up.

If this doesn’t work, please contact Lifeline for assistance.

How long will the handset last before I have to recharge it?

When fully charged, the handset provides up to 6 hours of talk time or 96 hours of standby time before it requires recharging. However, it is a good idea to get in the habit of recharging your handset each night.

Why isn’t my handset working?

If you have just set up your new Lifeline Cordless Phone, you may have to activate the handset. Press the Talk button and “ Ready ” should be displayed on the handset. If this doesn’t work, please contact Lifeline for assistance.
