Caller ID Products
We carry Unique Caller ID Devices that you can use to help your customers improve their productivity by tracking and logging their calls.
We've found that 2 Line Caller ID boxes with displays are not very useful! That's probably why you can't find them anymore. A multi-line Caller ID box with a display needs to indicate the line number the call came in on, on the display. That means that you have to actually look at the little line number, before you can be sure of who is on the line. Murphy's Law says that your customer's phone lines will sit idle for an hour - and then calls will come in on all of the lines at the same time!
For the largest Multi-Line Caller ID Box in the world, our new Caller ID Watch program (below) is the only usable multi-line display we've seen.
We actually use our Caller ID products in our own office! We've found that we can take quite a few more orders every day by using CTI (Computer Telephony Integration) to pop up the caller's account information as soon as we answer the phone. That's saved us a lot of money by requiring fewer telephone sales reps!

Talking Caller ID on your PC
When a new call comes in, you can tell Caller ID Watch Plus to talk to you! It will tell you the Line Number, the Name and/or the Phone Number.
You can turn the speech on or off on any PC, but it even talks on a PC anywhere on the Internet!
Caller ID Watch Plus will make every incoming call easier:
Network Setup is easy...
The Network Setup Wizard makes it easy to install on a network. For use outside the network on the Internet, instructions on opening a port on your firewall are included in the Help Section of the Caller ID Watch Plus.
Use the Call Logging features...
Uses the full 800x600 monitor
Caller ID Watch PLUS Incoming, Outgoing, and Logging Features:
Caller ID Watch PLUS includes an Inactivity Warning which plays a sound to let you know if no Caller ID has been received in X minutes:
Requires Windows 98 or up, minimum Pentium 100 with 256meg of RAM, a real serial port (not a USB/serial converter), hard drive with 200 meg free, a Super VGA (800x600 minimum) Monitor, and a NIC (Network Interface Card) if you plan to use it over a network or over the Internet.
The voice features (spoken Caller ID) require a sound card and speakers.
Comes with a Dongle that connects to the serial port on the PC that's collecting the data from the Caller ID Box. No limit on the number of client PCs.
1. If the information you need from Caller ID Watch Plus is important to you, you should probably run it on a dedicated PC. If other software on the PC crashes Windows, you'll lose the information until the computer is reset. Even old versions of Windows (like 95) do an incredibly good job if there is only one program running on the PC. Be sure to remove everything from the Startup Group, and stop the Virus Scanning software on that cheap dedicated PC.
2. Caller ID Watch Plus Network uses UDP Packets which are not absolutely guaranteed to get to the client PC. In reality, we haven't seen dropped packets on the network, but you shouldn't use the network for life safety applications. Even if a packet gets dropped over the network, the main PC collecting the Caller ID information will have all of the information in its log. To get the UDP packets outside of your network, you'll need to choose a port for them to be sent on, and that port will have to be opened in the firewalls.
3. If you plan to view Caller ID information over the Internet from a PC that has a dynamic IP address (that changes often like residential cable, DSL or a cellular phone data connection), you'll have to click on the Network Setup Wizard each time the IP address changes to send the new IP address to the main PC running Caller ID Watch Plus Network. That takes about 10 seconds.Part # CID2O
CALLER ID LINK: Windows TSR Type Program for SCREEN POPS
Plug your Whozz Calling (Full Feature only, but not with Memory/Modem) into a serial port on your PC, and it will record all activity, including outgoing if you have a Full Feature unit, into a flat file on your hard disk. It starts automatically with windows. Everything is time and date stamped. For incoming calls, the program leaves the last Caller ID number received in a separate file for each line (like whooz01.dat, whooz02,dat, etc.).
If you want to bring Caller ID into a custom written program, you simply have the program open the small flat file for the appropriate line number, when you want to do a screen pop for that line.
It's usually easier to read and parse the information from a file, than to read the serial port (which is what Caller ID LINK does for you). You might even be able to read the flat file from a regular database program (like Access).
Since you never know which line you need to answer (Murphy's Law says that more than one line is going to ring at the same time), your program needs a way for you to tell it which line you're going to answer, so it will pop the correct information.
If you have 12 or fewer lines, the F Keys (above the numbers on a keyboard) are the easiest to use (if your program doesn't already use them). You may also be able to use a two key combination, like SHIFT and the F Key.
This works best on a Square Key System (where all of the lines are the same line number on every phone). That way, someone can hit the F Key even before they answer the line, to see who's calling. On a PBX, you could hit the F Key after the line is answered, if the line number is shown on the phone's display.
Requires Windows 95 and up, a PC with a minimum 486-66 with 32 meg of RAM, a serial port, hard drive with 10 meg free, and a Network Interface Card (NIC) so other computers on the network can access the Caller ID data.
This PC becomes the Caller ID Server.
