Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the LineGrabber™ do?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    The LineGrabber provides full line seizure without any complex wiring to the network interface jack (NO RJ31X TO INSTALL). The LineGrabber works with any single-line, analog phone (plain old telephone systems - POTS), and prevents jamming of the alarm signal by other phone devices connected to the same line, such as phone ringing, conversation in progress, or handset left off-hook in the high and dry mode (no dial tone). It also saves time and money in not having to buy wiring permits to install phone line seizure, and can be installed in a few minutes by non-technical personnel.

  • Will the LineGrabber™ work with rotary-pulse and tone-dialing phones?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes.

  • Is the LineGrabber™ compatible with Caller ID, Message Waiting, and DSL?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes.

  • How fast can you recover the line after the alarm communicator gets the acknowledgement (aka kiss-off) signal from the monitoring office?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    The instant the alarm auto dialer hangs-up.

  • Will alarm signaling be delayed in any way when using the LineGrabber™?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    No.

  • Will the LineGrabber™ work with multi-line phones?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    The LineGrabber™ is designed to work with a single, loop-start analog line. If you can access the alarm line with jack adapters you can install a LineGrabber™ on that line.

  • Will the LineGrabber™ work with a miss-wired wall jack? (ring and tip reversed).

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes. The LineGrabber™ is designed to compensate for reversed wired jacks. If your phone does not work after installation, reverse the LineGrabber™ LG-2MSJ WALL and PHONE RJ-11 plugs.

  • Is the LineGrabber™ transient protected?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes. Sidactor devices and 1KV components act as surge and transient suppression.

  • Does LineGrabber™ need a power supply?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    No. The LineGrabber™ is powered directly through the phone line.

  • Can the LineGrabber™ be used in systems with an RJ-31X jack installed for line seizure?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes. This would be a non-alarm use of the LineGrabber™ The phone device without a LineGrabber™ will lock-out all other devices with a LineGrabber™, but the alarm control seizes the line as usual.

  • Will a LineGrabber™ allow an alarm system to seize and retrieve dial-tone from a phone in use or handset left off-hook?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes.

  • Is the LineGrabber™ fail safe?

    keyboard_arrow_down

    Yes. Component failures most likely will prevent normal phone operation but will allow full line seizure by the alarm control communicator.
