As an option, the TE905A can be converted into a 'No Phone Bill type' system, with the addition of other components, and RJ71C jacks (provided by the local phone company).

NOTE: If this unit is to be used outdoors, see the installation/use manual for weather restrictions. For outdoor installations we highly recommend the TE903A or TE904 series instead of the TE905A series. Contact the factory for more details on using the TE905A series outdoors.
