You must connect the ooma phone jack to the plug(male).
Oh, I think I understand. I am laughing at myself. So I need a female/female coupler with 2 females to connect the male and the male, correct? Thanks.

Yes - but it is commonly called a male/male coupler because it connects two male plugs. And yes, there are two female connectors in the device.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

Southsound and Murphy,

Thanks for you assistance. I was able to get the ooma working and the monitored alarm seems to communicate with the central station without any adjustment. I now plan to keep it hooked up like this for a week or so, and if it works fine, will call the phone company.

Murphy I have the older Ooma hub and not the newer Teleo unit, is the ability to allow all jacks to have a dial tone without the use of a Ooma scout a feature only available with the newer Ooma Teleo unit? With the setup I have using the older Ooma Hub my phone jacks throughout the house only work when hooked up in conjunction with the Ooma scout.

Just wondering if full home distribution of a dial tone to all jacks was possible with the older Ooma Hub?

Thanks,
Neal

Yes it is. I have the hub on line 1 in my house and a scout on line 2. The hub and scout are connected together on line 3.
