CallerTV - Caller-ID for your Television
CallerTV from NetMedia is an easy-to-install device that connects your telephone line to your TV and displays caller-ID information on the TV screen when an incoming call is received.

The ID information can be displayed as text on top of your existing video feed, as a picture-in-picture (PIP) display, or it will even work without a video source and display a simple blue screen with caller-ID information. The display will last for 10-15 seconds and ID information can be retained until the next call is received. CallerTV is designed with your convenience in mind, once installed there are no buttons to push or remote controls to deal with.

Want a really cordless phone?
Leviton 40215-W Out-Of-Sight Powerjack For Cordless Phones

The Out-of-Sight PowerJack™ is the solution! This unique 4-wire telephone jack is integrated with a low-voltage power supply and installs behind cordless wall phones, answering machines and combination units. No longer will unsightly dangling cords and bulky transformers interfere with your home’s décor.

The Out-of-Sight PowerJack installs in a standard wall box and is the same size as standard wall-mounted phone jacks. All unsightly wires tuck neatly behind the phone for a streamlined look. It features user-adjustable voltage settings, accommodating cordless phones (ranging from 7 to 12V DC) and comes with six universal plug adapters. It is perfect in new or newly remodeled construction and can be retrofitted to existing installations.

Regulated output voltage keeps the output voltage stable at any point along the input voltage range (96 to135V AC). It also features high-efficiency and low stand-by mode power dissipation. The typical steady state (with load) power consumption is 8.5 @ 74% efficiency. Typical standby mode (no load) power dissipation is 0.12W. Over-current, over-temperature and short-circuit protection provide safety and reliability.

Includes six universal adapters for operation with most cordless phones. Read more

5 Stars JOANN — PISMO BEACH, CA    Date: 2/17/2011
Review: It works just fine out of the box. Easy to install. I got it so that I could have a fax machine in another location in the house and have had no problems.

1 Star GLENN — BUMPASS, VA    Date: 12/6/2010
Review: Dont buy it. Total waste of your money and time.A pop in the back of the head to Smarthome for even offering it. Hooked it up and all I could hear was loud static.Tried it in different locations in the house and it was the same static.

1 Star Maria — New Jersey    Date: 11/22/2010
Review: this item has been nothing but a headach it works when it wants to work. You can’t be next to the computer with the phone ypu can’t be around a power strip because your phon will go out. JUST A PAIN…..

1 Star Ed — New Jersey    Date: 6/8/2010
Review: This and all other wireless jacks that use the home’s wiring are junk. Occasionally you may get lucky on the particular circuit you may be using but they’re all junk. The only wireless jack worth using is the Dual Jack. It uses a 2.3 ghz signal instead of the house’s wiring and is far superior. Unfortunately, it is no longer available in the USA.

1 Star DALE — LEXINGTON, VA    Date: 5/21/2010
Review: This item was not as described in the online catalog. This product apparently comes in a “voice/data” model and “data only” model. No distinction was made in the catalog description, and I received the “data only” model which worked very poorly for my application, a voice telephone remote extension.

1 Star MATT — CHESTERFIELD, MO    Date: 5/14/2010
Review: Haven’t been able to get it to work yet, Love the idea, but so far it’s been worthless.

3 Stars THOMAS — POMPANO BEACH, FL    Date: 4/12/2010
Review: I have some static on the line, but that is because I live in a condo and other people use wireless devices. But it doesn’t effect my faxes.
