Important Cordless Telephone Installation Information
DS1000/2000 900 MHz Cordless Telephone Installation Tips
The cordless telephone base unit plugs into a digital station port.
For best results, the base unit should be placed in line-of-site with its handset.
Cordless telephone range and reception can vary from site to site. Some of the things that
may adversely affect range and reception are:
Placing the base against or close to a wall (particularly if the wall has metal studs).
Positioning the base close to a device that emits Electromagnetic Interference (EMI),
such as a TV, radio, computer, ﬂuorescent light, fax machine, or printer.
Installing the base close to other 900 Mhz devices, such as Symbol or Telex hand-held
Installing the base above a ceiling that uses foil-backed insulation.
Installing the base behind a door which can be closed, tinted windows, or one-way glass
which will separate the base from the handset.
Always raise the base unit antenna to its full vertical position.
When installing more than one cordless telephone in the same site:
Be sure the base units are at least 15 feet apart.
After installation, change each telephone's channel by pressing CH on the handset. This will
minimize interference between your cordless telephones. There are 30 available channels.
The handset must charge 5-8 hours in its charger prior to initial use.
The Nickel Metal Hydride Rechargeable Battery Pack is recyclable. If you replace a battery
pack, always dispose of the old pack along with your other recyclable materials.
