Call Waiting Family Picture FOUR CALL WAITING PRODUCTS
To share voice lines with Modems
They ALERT the computer user that an inbound call has been detected


  • They provide immediate call notification
  • No special software to install *
  • Works with any Mac, PC desktop or laptop, anywhere
  • Audible and visual Call Waiting alerts
  • Installs in about 1 minute
  • Use in the home or office
  • Portable


What are the differences between them?

  • They all have the same auto adaptive high precision signal-processing engine that distinguishes the call waiting tone from the simultaneous overlapping modem signals. It recognizes the Call Waiting tone the FIRST TIME, EVERY TIME; no matter what state the modem is in.

    This was the first on the market and is field proven with thousands of installations operating with various central office telephone switches.

  • They all provide a "beeping" alert and a flashing LED when a waiting call is detected.

  • They primarily differ by their optional methods of taking the waiting call.
