and Not registered.

Info

The page also shows the DECT managers that currently are ready to register handsets. As this version only supports the use of one DECT manager, the information is not meaningful at present.

Registering handsets time-controlled

Shows the current system time and time settings:

  • In the Registration start time field enter the time when the next registration process should be started. Format: YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm.

  • Click on Start now and the DECT manager starts a registration process at the given time. If no time is set, the DECT manager will start registration at once.

Closing the window and resetting the timers:

  • Click on Close and the registration window is closed, the time settings are reset.
Info

When the first handset tries to register, the base closes the registration window and finalises the registration within a very few seconds. During this time any second handset registration attempt would be rejected. When the first handset is fully registered the base re-opens the registration window as long as defined with the Registration start time and Registration duration parameters.
If all handsets try to register in parallel, a lot of them will enter the base one by one and so will be successfully registered, but others might enter while another registration is not yet completed and so they will be rejected. Single handsets that are rejected have to be registered by a new registration procedure or manually.
