    Default powermax+ security by visonic

    In trying to set up remote control by telephone, the instructions start by saying dial the powermax + telephone no. Does this mean my home number, or is there another number, or one I need to program?
    Thanks for any info about this, I feel kind of dense to not be able to figure this out. I have found the manuals really tedious to understand.
    However, the power max+ otherwise seems to be working fine, I've had it since last Christmas

    Manuals are certainly Crap - we re-wrote them for our guys with a simple set of press 1 ret ret ret type setup to make it easy

    Yes just dial into it using your home phone number.

    Make sure the system is setup to receive incoming calls.

    Thanks.
    Right now, it doesn't seem to take incoming calls. Is this set-up instruction in the users guide or the installers guide? Also I have an answering machine.
    Thanks

    Hi I also install Powermax+ alarms. And have to agree the manuals aren't the best.
    I'm out of the office at the moment so I can't check the manual. But I'm pretty sure you have to ring your number then hang up then immediately ring again, then the powermax will answer. Can't remember if you can set the number of rings or not. I guess this is so that fax and answermachine won't interfere with the system.
    Good luck.

    Thanks for the tips. I'm still stumpedd on how to tell if my powermax+ accepts incoming calls. It will call out because it has notified me of an alarm event.
    But when I call home, ring twice and call back, it doesn't answer.
    Thanks
    Alan
