  3. On the side of the of the RPS III-2 there is a 2 port RJ-11 telephone line jack. One port is labeled LINE. Take a modular telephone line cord and plug one end into the LINE port. Plug the other end into the telephone wall jack. The other port labeled PHONE (this port is closer to the end of the unit) allows you to connect any telephone equipment (fax machine, modem, PC fax/modem card, telephone, etc.) through the RPS III-2 to the phone line.

Without any further configuration the RPS III-2 is now set to its DEFAULT CONFIGURATION . When a phone call is received the unit will:

  • Wait until 6 rings are detected.
  • When the above condition is met the unit will pick up the phone and issue a voice prompt for a password.
  • Port A will have Power On
  • Port B will have Power On
  • Use your touch tone keypad to access the unit for further configuration.
  • Use the default security code (configurable) , 8 8 8 8 once the unit picks up to access configuration options.
  • Follow the voice prompts to control the remote power switch.

You can check the status of each programmable setting and receive information about power status to the device you have plugged into the RPS III-2 though its voice prompts. After calling the unit, you will be receive a prompt for your 4 digit password. Once you enter your password, you will receive a power port status ( power on or off for each port ) and be voice prompted to control the other functions of the RPS III-2. After any command, you will get speech guidance or an acknowledgement tone of your actions. This voice prompted remote power switch is very easy to use.
