This item is a simple paging system with one LRS Butler II one-button transmitter and one alphanumeric text display pager.
Place the Butler II transmitter anywhere indoors that you wish anyone to contact your staff with the push of a button. This system is ideal for simple paging requirements such as push-for-service service counter buttons or alerting staff to come to locked doors. In restaurants, use this to call the manager to the hostess station or cashier's counter when things get either too hectic to look around or so slow that the staff seems to disappear.
The button can be programmed to address more than one pager so groups can be alerted simultaneously.
The Butler II transmitter has a port or "trigger" feature that connects to simple wired switches such as doorbells or door/window sensors so the transmitter can be activated remotely (and to keep the transmitter secure or protected from the weather). See the reference to the Doorbell Kit below under Related Products.
The Butler ll's unusual features include:
- One-touch operation
- Programmable button
- Text messaging for alphanumeric pagers
- Flexible programming using your PC
- Battery power for portability
- Input port for door sensor or doorbell options
- Low cost
Programmable Buttons and Ports
The Butler II one-button has one button which can be programmed to transmit a specific message depending on the pager type being used. The button is programmed using software that runs on your PC and then the program is downloaded from the PC to the Butler transmitter using a USB cable.
The button can be programmed to:
- Signal any single pager
- Signal groups of pagers
- Send any text message to alphanumeric pagers (up to 200 letters)
The Butler II has one port which may be connected to simple switchs such as doorbells or door sensors. The port is programmed for the same effects as the button for pagers signaled and messages sent. In addition, ports are programmed for their normal switch status as "normally open" or "normally closed". Multiple switches may be wired in parallel so any switch in the circuit triggers the transmitter.
