I can’t get telephone control to work. It’s not a DTMF issue as I’ve tried local phone control with two different phones. The control recognizes ‘***’ and asks for the code. Then when I enter a valid code there is silence for a while until the control announces ‘hanging up’.
I’ve tried remote phone control too. It’s worse because it recognizes ‘***’ but I can’t hear the code prompt.
My control has firmware 5.3.18. My Elk M1XEP died so I am back to POTS (Verizon FIOS in my case). Alarm reporting works over the phone line (dialer test success and test alarm also worked).
Settings: Telephone control 2=local&remote
G29-42 Rings until auto answer 12
Ring/Hangup/answer on (I tested this and it works in the sense that the control picks up)’
listen in off
CS Verify Call Time in Secs:0
Two-way Speaker Volume:2
Telephone Line fault timer 10 minutes.
My security codes are 4 digits. Does phone control work with only 4 or is 6 digits required perhaps?
Yes. Telephone control has worked for years. Has anyone tested Telephone control on current m1 gold firmware 5.3.18? I can rule out fios/voip issues because local Telephone control using a touch tone house phone also does not go past the code entry prompt.
How can I get house phone control working? If my m1gold is able to successfully complete a dialer test to Central Station, to me it indicates it can recognize dtmf tones over my landline. From the house phone it recognizes *** to start. I hear the code prompt. A while later after entering my valid code (tried all users) I hear “hanging up”.
