Add Phone Jack

I'd like to add a phone jack next to a RJ-31X. I have 3-pair wire and 2 pairs are used for the RJ-31X. What's the best way to accomplish this?

Thanks,

Marnie

You should be able

to tap off at the jack itself, unless I'm not understanding what you'd like to do. You should just be able to run your new wire from the RJ-31X to your new jack.

Here is some general info on phone systems wiring:

Good Luck!

Just remember to tap the new jack from the outgoing side of the rj31X (brown/grey) Otherwise you compromise the ability of the alarm to sieze the phone line even if a house phone is off the hook.

Thanks, I got the line working but hadn't tested it with the alarm system. I'll change it to the outgoing posts.
