Ooma and NextAlarm

Post by prozario » Tue Jul 17, 2012 5:59 pm

Just got ooma (previous phonepower customer) .. all was setup quickly, number ported etc etc. But the nextalarm stopped working. I've seen few old threads with this issue from years back. Can someone tell me, what's the solution in 2012? Is my only option to get the ABN adapater? And if anyone knows if ABN adapter is free or not (in past i thought it was free - but i made the mistake of returning it when i got it last time- as i thought it was wireless but it wasn't). Also, do i need to pay more $$ monthly for ABN service.

If you can program prefix, try *99 (and *98 if Telo). viewtopic.php?t=13875#p96696

Is your Ooma Phone port wired directly to the input of your alarm system and no where else?
Are your house phone jacks fed from the output of the alarm system?

the setup is like this:

Phone wire comes out of OOma, and then i've a regular splitter. One line plugs directly into my cordless phone, and other line plugs into back of the Alarm Panel (abbra system from nextalarm).
