|TeleSpy™ Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I hear an intruder?
be grateful you're not there but
are listening from a remote location.
Never attempt to apprehend criminals
yourself. This could be very dangerous!
If you think you are hearing an
unauthorized break-in, call 911
or your local law enforcement emergency
Can the TeleSpy™ be used in smaller
homes and apartments and homes with
existing security systems?
The TeleSpy™ is an ideal solution
for the smaller homes and apartments.
Because of its affordability and easy
installation, it is an ideal security
product for rented apartments, college
dorm rooms, and small homes or condos.
It also provides a valuable supplement
to businesses and homes with existing
security systems. About 30% of TeleSpy™ sold
go into small businesses, garages or
How does the Self Test function help
test switch on the TeleSpy™ powers
the green LED light near it. It tells
the owner instantly when the motion sensor
detects something (light comes on). The
light stays on during a timed period
(the listening period) after which the
phone disconnects and the light goes
off. When the light goes off the TeleSpy™ is
instantly re-armed for the next detection.
Knowing how to use this function allows
the owner to discover the exact perameter
and sensitivity of the motion sensor
within their personal environment.
tip: Unplug the phone line. Now the TeleSpy™ will
show LED light "on" for detection
and light "off" for disconnect
and reset without calling. Always remember
that the first time you turn the TeleSpy™ power "on" it
takes 60 seconds to arm but the LED
will turn off at 30 seconds. You must
wait 30 seconds after the light has
gone off before the TeleSpy™ is
armed (only the first time.) Thereafter,

think like an intruder. If an intruder
entered, where would he come from (34%
come through the front door), where would
he go? What would the intruder want?
Predicting an intruder's movement once
they break-in should dictate the position
of the TeleSpy™ in the room. First
place TeleSpy™in the best place,
lastly run the cords in a discrete and
safe manner. Running cords accross the
middle of a room unsecured is never a
good idea. A small telephone table near
the area you would most like to protect
works the best. Remember to make the
phone appear to be an actual phone.
If I have a pet will that interfere
with the function of the Telespy?
and motion sensors can live together.
If you use the motion sensor with the
pet in close proximity it probably will
set off the sensor. Use the test light
on TeleSpy™ to discover for
yourself the sensitivity of your pet(s),
then devise a strategy which allows the TeleSpy™ to
function without pet interference; you
may find that pointing it in a specific
direction or slightly raising the unit
solves the problem. Sensitivity is factory
