Programming Your Guard-ItTM
Autodialer
Programming Menu
To program your Guard-ItTM autodialer, you will need a standard touch-tone
telephone.
Telephones which have the keypad located separately from the handset, are
most convenient for this purpose.
Just plug the telephone temporarily into the Programming Jack on the front
panel of the product, lift the receiver, and follow the voice menu to enter your
programming and record your voice messages.
If you do not make any selection from the “top” menu, it will be repeated once
and then the program mode will be terminated.
To begin again, simply hang up the programming phone for a second or so, and
then pick it up again. You may do this from most places in the programming
menu, whenever you want a fresh start.
For most programming items, you will hear the present programming entry if
any, and then you will be given a chance to either accept this existing entry by
pressing pound (#), or else make a new entry.
If you make a new entry, it will be repeated back to you for confirmation.
In general, pressing the pound (#) key will cause whatever you have keyed in to
be accepted and recited back for confirmation.
When keying in a menu choice rather than a value, the choice will be accepted
and recited without need to press pound (#).
Pressing the pound (#) key when you have not keyed in any entry, will
generally return you to the previous menu level.
If you make an entry that the Product considers invalid, it will respond with a
statement, “Value fault. Enter a new value.” The previous valid setting will be
retained and restated, and then you will be prompted to make a new entry if you
wish to do so. This would occur, for example, if you entered a value that was
outside the allowable range of values for that programming item.

Phone Number Programming

PHONE
NUMBERS
!
You must program at least one phone number for your Guard-ItTM autodialer
to dial when it has an alarm to report.
Note:
Until you do so, any alarms which are detected will be automatically
acknowledged without any alarm calls being placed.
To program phone numbers, you must first select which of 8 available phone
numbers (first, second, etc.) you want to program. The voice menu will ask you
for this number, which will be a number from 1 to 8. Then it will recite the
presently programmed phone number for that selection, if any. Then it will
allow you to accept the current entry by pressing pound (#), or else enter a new
phone number for that selection.
Be sure to include any necessary prefixes or area codes, just as you would dial it
on an ordinary telephone.
As you enter each digit, be sure to listen for the voice to repeat back that digit,
before you enter the next digit.
Example:
To program the third phone number to be 1 (510) 658-6713, from the top
menu you would press [2] for phone number programming, then [3] to select
the third phone number, then:

Listen carefully as the completed entry is repeated back to you, to be sure it
was entered and accepted correctly.
To delete a phone number, program it to be 00.
For example, to clear out the fourth phone number, from the top menu you
would press [2] for phone number programming, then [4] to select the fourth
phone number, then:
0 0 #.

Testing

Testing
A suitable program of testing is highly adviseable for any alarm autodialer. The
frequency and thoroughness of the test should be gauged according to the
potential consequences of missing an alarm call.
Test the unit by simulating an alarm at one or more of the inputs. If you have
an optional rechargeable battery installed, you can create a power failure alarm
by disconnecting the external 12 VDC power source and waiting 5 minutes for a
power failure alarm to be tripped.
You can leave the power disconnected and see how long the unit remains
operational, running on its optional rechargeable battery. You might
temporarily program an alarm reset time of, say, four hours, so that you would
get a new set of calls every four hours until the battery lost charge.
