    Answering Machine Technology

    I wonder if there is a phone answering product that would only allow calls to get thru only if they are on an “approved (editable) list”. Otherwise they are diverted to (a silent mode) voice mail to take a message. This way if the phone rings it will be someone known to the household. This obviously needs the caller ID feature from the phone service provider to be turned on.

      This Sentry device looks pretty close.

      From their web page: ” The unlisted callers will receive the Sentry’s outgoing message, “If you are a telemarketer or solicitor of any purpose, please hang and remove our phone number from your list. Otherwise, press 0 and leave a message after the beep. Thank you.” The caller’s phone number will be automatically added to the accept list when the caller dials 0, and the Sentry will ring up to 9 times(not the phones). If the call isn’t answered within the 9 rings, the Sentry will emit a beep and the caller can leave a 20 second message on the Sentry. The screener will play the OGM twice and terminate the call if the 0 is not pressed. *Note: The call can be intercepted during the screening and after the dialing of 0 when the Sentry rings.”
