ADT worked fine, as far as I know, using the telephone line I had hooked up with my cable company, Charter Communications. I then switched to Ooma, and in doing several tests with ADT, they don't receive the signal, and after the first couple tests we tried, the phones didn't have a dial tone for something like 5 or 10 mins.
Upon researching through these and other forums, the common recommendation seems to be to go into programming, and edit setting 40, entering #11 99 #13 (aka *99pause). So here's the steps I took
- Verified after the initial tests that I did with ADT, nothing shows up in my call log on my.ooma.com.
Verified hookup. Have phone splitter coming off Ooma unit, with one wire going to fax/printer, and the other going to female part of a female and male special phone jack on the end of a wire going to ADT panel. Verify phone (handset) works fine (I get the Ooma special tone, don't know how to shut that off if it matters).
Tried to enter programming on ADT panel by entering 6321800. It made a sorta long beep, but a "20" never displayed to let me know I was in programming. Other commands like #40, etc. didn't seem to do anything, so I was convinced I didn't have right installer code.
Used method to retrieve installer code from sticky FAQ here. After plugging in battery and power to ADT, the unit was in programming mode, and I hit #20 to see installer code, and weirdly it was 6321 which I tried before.
Looked at 40 which was blank, 41 which was 1877xxxxxxx, and 42 which was blank.
Hit *40 to edit it, and typed #11 70 #13
Exited programming by hitting *99
Called ADT to test, and they had me do silent test by doing <my code>51. We waited like 3 mins, and they received no call.
I checked call log on my.ooma.com and still nothing registered.
I'm not sure what else to try at this point? Am I stuck getting the cell hookup for ADT for another $12/mo.?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
