DAS 201 will not answer until after the fourth ring. This feature allows you to
call into your answering machine, and determine, without a toll, if there are
any unplayed messages on the system (i.e. If the phone rings three times,
there are no unplayed messages).
J. Recording Incoming Calls
– When the DAS 201 is in Answer/Record mode, it will answer the telephone
after the second (or fourth) ring, then will play your OGM1 message. At the

they may begin speaking. The DAS 201 allows callers to leave a message.
At the end of the message, the DAS 201 will sound a long beep, indicating
that the recording time is over.
