The P-0920 must be used together with a compatible door intercom station. Channel Vision offers a variety of compatible units such as the popular IU-series and DP-series intercom stations. For example, model DP-0212 is compatible.
Channel Vision offers some IU-series and DP-series intercom stations that are only compatible with Panasonic KSU phone systems. These model numbers, which end with the letter “P”, will NOT WORK. For example, model DP-0212P is NOT COMPATIBLE.
How it Works:
The P-0920 is installed in-line between your telephone service provider and your telephone distribution system. A compatible door intercom station is installed and connected to the P-0920. When the door intercom’s button is pressed, the phones in the house will ring, if the phone is answered within 20 seconds you will be automatically connected to door intercom station. If you wish to contact the door intercom station after 20 seconds has passed, pick up the phone and dial ** (or ## depending your configuration).
If you are using the optional TE110DS door strike relay module, it can be activated by dialing the appropriate touch-tone code (see the user’s guide section) or by pressing a button that is connected to the “Unlock Door” terminals. You can use the “Unlock Door” terminals if you would like to be able to open an access gate from outside of the house without using a telephone. Simply wire a standard push button to these terminals that will provide a momentary short when the button is pressed. Use the “Chime” terminals if you would like to use a traditional doorbell chime in addition to ringing the telephones when the door intercom button is pressed.
For convenience, there are two different ways to connect the active phone line input and telephone output.
Option 1: connect the active phone using a single pair of wires to the wire terminals labeled “CO Input”. Then connect a single pair of wires to the wire terminals labeled “Telephone” and connect the other end of those wires to your telephone distribution wiring system.
Option 2: use the RJ-45 jacks to connect the “CO Input” and “Telephone” output. This option simplifies wiring because CAT5 jumper cables can be used to interconnect the P-0920 with other Channel Vision telephone modules.
For proper operation, the system must be connected as shown. If telephones are connected so that they are wired directly to the telephone service provider, those telephones will not be able to utilize the telephone entry system.
This system uses a 12 Volt AC power supply. Make sure you use the power supply provided with the unit (or an equivalent replacement). If a DC power supply is used, the system may appear to work normally, but it will not be able to ring the phones.
