You are purchasing the Tel-Lynx Guardian BT. The Guardian BT protects your home telephones from unwanted calls and is easy to setup and use. You can also use the Guardian BT with your mobile phones to import their phone book and/or make and take calls. The difference between the Guardian BT and TLC is that TLC supports two-line telephones and the Guardian BT supports only single-line telephones.
If you do not need mobile phone support, please buy the Tel-Lynx Guardian instead of the Guardian BT. It costs less and is simpler to set up and use!
We want to you to be completely satisfied with every aspect of your Tel-Lynx purchase.
Please watch the video on our home page and read the Start Up Guide before purchasing. You should only purchase Tel-Lynx if you are comfortable with and understand the set up procedure. You can contact us through our support web page and we will be glad to answer any questions that are not covered in the Start Up Guide. We respond to emails promptly. In general, we don't provide phone support. You should be comfortable with email support when purchasing Tel-Lynx.
We use PayPal checkout with World-class Security and Purchase Protection. Buy with confidence using your credit card or your PayPal account. In either case, your entire purchase will be handled by PayPal through a secure link. We never have access to or store your credit card information.
Most orders go out the next business day. We can only ship to US addresses. We use USPS Priority Mail with 1-3 day delivery. You will be able to track your shipment from the time it leaves our warehouse until you receive it.

If you have not already, please view the video on our home page so you understand how Tel-Lynx works.
Although having a phone service with caller ID number delivery is not required to use Tel-Lynx, it is highly advisable. Without caller ID number delivery, Tel-Lynx will qualify all callers every time they call in. However, caller ID with both name and number delivery is not required.
If you have traditional phone service from your local telephone company and have multiple telephones connected to wall jacks throughout your house, you will need a Wall Jack Kit that allows you to use your telephones, with the Guardian, on the second (unused) line in your wall jacks. If you use a cordless phone system connected to only one wall jack, you will not need the Wall Jack Kit. If you need the Wall Jack Kit you can purchase it bundled with the Guardian BT below. To be able to use the wall jack kit, the second phone line (twisted pair) in the wall jacks you intend to use must be properly connected. There may be multiple second phone line wires terminating in your phone service box. Sometimes the telephone installer did not connect these second phone line wires together properly. You may need to connect these wires together yourself or have a telephone wiring specialist evaluate the condition of your wiring and possibly correct any issues.
Ooma Users: Tel-Lynx products work with the second generation Ooma Telo device. However, it appears that Tel-Lynx is incompatible with the old, first generation Ooma Hub device. If you have an Ooma Hub, you will need to replace it with an Ooma Telo in order to be able to use Tel-Lynx
DSL Users: Tel-Lynx products work with many but not all DSL phone service installations. There is no way to tell if Tel-Lynx will be compatible with a given DSL phone service up front. Therefore we are not recommending Tel-Lynx if you have DSL. If you have DSL and want to try it and it does not work, you can send it back to us in original condition and we will refund your purhcase minus a $10 handling fee.
To be able to update Tel-Lynx with the latest firmware, a PC with internet connectivity that is running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, or Windows 10 is required. This kind of PC is also required if you want to record phone conversations.
Preliminary PC software (optional) is available on our website.
Click here to download the software. Until the full software is released, the following will be unavailable: The ability to make changes to Tel-Lynx with the PC, e-mailed voice mail, and the ability to make and take calls on the PC. All other features are working, including phone book import and export from/to a PC.
If you will be paying by credit or debit card, make sure you select the "Check Out" button to the left instead of the Check Out with PayPal button to the right on the PayPal checkout page. On the next page under Choose a way to pay, select Pay with credit or debit card If you have any problems using your credit or debit card, please send us an email through our support page. Thank you!
