Hi,

This is my first time installing doorstation at a client home. Just to get things right and hate to go through 'try and error' procedure. If the client needs the doorstation to ring his phone after a certain delay at anytime, does that mean I need to configure the Doorbell zone types  to immediate in all conditions? Then in doorbell alarm types, I need to set a dial delay to ring to his phone. will the doorbell press will still ring on the keypads before the dial delay kicks in???

The DP03 doorbell does not have a zone type. The doorbell zone type is only for a push button switch to ring the phones so is not applicable

The doorbell Alarm Type is automatically activated in Away and Vacation Mode but not in Security Off or Night Mode. Hence the system will dial to the phones programmed for the doorbell alarm type in Away and Vacation modes. If you enable a dial delay in Doorbell allarm type then the system will call after the dial delay but the doorbell has a time out so when the system dials out after a delay the doorbell may have timed out and the user will hear "please sign in" instead of "Doorbell" and will not be conected to the door station, although he can press 6 for door station.

If you want the door station to dial out in all modes then use the action Force Dial Out in the Doorbell Response.
However adding a delay to this is not a good idea for the above reason. Anyway the visitor will have probably left after 1 minute or so

Thanks CHiu,

I should better leave the system to dial out only in Away Mode then. 

I am struggling to get a louder voice out of doorstation when it 'talks' to phone. Tried to adjust the VR51 + VR1 on DS but with no luck. It is either working well in a very very low volume   or high volume but with pauses. Read the DP03 manual and Will look through into it and do the necessary adjusment. Any suggestions would be welcome.

 

Regards
