The AR-1 Automated Receptionist is a digital call screening and messaging system designed to answer calls with an informative greeting, then let callers ring through to talk to someone live, select from other prerecorded messages or hang up.
Programming functions and message recording are accessed locally or remotely using a standard touch tone phone. Recordings from tape, CD, PC, etc. can also be locally loaded via the AR-1’s 3.5mm analog audio input. Twelve minutes of total record time and up to 8 different messages can be recorded into the unit. The messages consist of one Day greeting, one Night greeting, one Transfer message, four Menu messages and one Goodbye message. To speed up programming and message recording in multi-line applications, up to 64 AR-1’s can be connected together via the CAN communications port. This will allow you to program just the “master” unit and have it automatically program and update the messages on up to 63 “slave” units.
The AR-1 has a call screening option which allows callers with the correct code to bypass the greeting message and ring through. The unit has a programmable touch tone distinctive ring through option allowing callers to enter 0,7,8, or 9 to ring the phone port in 4 different distinctive / custom ring patterns. The unit has an optional automatic ring through mode allowing calls to automatically ring through after the caller has listened to the entire greeting message. The AR-1 also has a programmable store and forward Caller ID feature where Caller ID is stored and retransmitted to the phones or phone system when a caller rings through.
