This page generates programming instructions for RAK-2 and RCS series systems that have firmware version 6 in the embedded RFC-1. Users of earlier models, including RAK-1 systems and stand-alone RFC-1 systems, should use the programming pages that are compatible with those models.
Program a Telephone Number
The RFC-1 stores six telephone numbers to call when an alarm occurs.
The procedure on this page works for all six telephone numbers but if you are programming one of the first three telephone numbers, you can also use the basic programming commands 86, 87, 88 and 89.
There are fourteen memory locations available for each telephone number.
- The first twelve memory locations store the digits of the phone number
- The thirteenth memory location stores the call mode (voice, data or pager)
- The fourteenth memory location stores the maximum number of call attempts
Longer Telephone Numbers
Telephone numbers can be chained together to form a single telephone number that is longer than 12 digits. Special codes are inserted in the telephone numbers to make this possible. See the Installation and Operation manual for more information.
Each telephone number can be dialed up to four times during an alarm. The alarm clears when someone interacts with the system--presses any key. This usually happens within the first couple of calls so the maximum number of calls is rarely made. The factory setting is 2 attempts.
Most alarm calls are made in voice mode. This is the default setting. When dialing a pager this setting adjusts the pager ID digit (0-9) that is sent to the pager display. Data paging is not currently supported in the RFC-1/B.
The default dialing procedure is to call all the available numbers in rotation in order: A, B, C, D, E, F. If the rotation completes, it starts over at A. The rotation stops at the first blank location so numbers should be used in order.
