Product details

Telephone and Modem to Telephone Adapter

  • Self-contained, telephone privacy double adapter
  • Prevents interruption or listening in on phone calls
  • One socket disconnects automatically when the other is answered
  • LED light to indicate when an extension is in use

This ingenious device prevents other users in your home or office from interrupting or eavesdropping your phone calls or causing your modem to drop the line whilst surfing the internet. It looks and behaves just like a standard double adapter with a clever difference. When the extension plugged into one socket is answered, the other extension is automatically disconnected. LED indicators light showing when an extension is in use. Completely self contained, requiring no batteries.

Is this suitable for RJ11 lead?

I want to run a fax machine and a card payment terminal on the same line with this device, should it work and is the length of the extension relevant?

I bought one of these a while ago, but it does not allow Caller ID information to be passed to a phone that is connected to it. The picture in your catalogue now looks as though the design has been updated. Are these new models Caller ID compatible?

The Privacy adapter is the same specification as previous models.

Does this product work "both ways" - i.e. 1. if I''m already on the phone and the other "extension" tries to dial, they will be blocked 2. if the other "extension" is being used and I try to dial, I will be blocked I guess I want to know if it is a switch between the two rather than giving priority to one "extension" Thanks

The first one that dials gets prioity, that is all, There is no switch. You are correct in the other getting blocked when One picks up.

So how does the privacy adaptor actually work? Will it work if the first connection is made by a computer modem dialling out?

As Per Overview:- When the extension plugged into one socket is answered, the other extension is automatically disconnected which prevents other users in your home or office from interupting or eavesdropping your phone calls or causing your modem to drop the line whilst surfing the internet
