Telo with landline, Brinks alarm & Directv

Post by jmillerNSRY » Wed Nov 11, 2009 8:30 am

Just purchased the new Telo but have not activated yet.

Time Warner is my internet provider. I have AT&T landline service. I plan to intergrate the landline and keep my current phone #. Broadview is my alarm system and have two DVRs with Directv.
Currently I have four Panasonic cordless phones in use, two are 5.8 & two are 2.4. Question No. 1, if I activate as planned, will Telo support the four or three phones and will the alarm system and Directv continue to work as they now do without any adjustments? Question No. 2, do I need to upgrade to the new phones and will the alarm system & Directv dvrs work with the system then?

Thanks,

Just to be clear, you plan to keep your current landline integrated and not port your number to Ooma, correct?

Sorry I have been out of town for a few days.

Yes, I plan to keep AT&T landline intergrated and not port my current number.

Thanks,

Without knowing any details about your setup, the short answer is yes to all of your questions - but some modification to how things are connected may be needed. The only thing that sticks out as a potential problem is the 2.4 GHz (and possibly the 5.8's as well) phones may interfere with any wireless network connection you have. DECT 6.0 phones will not interfere with wireless network connections.
