How does the Notify Norwalk system respond to busy signals or no-answer situations?
For busy signals, the call will be repeated several times in an attempt to reach you. The same is true for no-answer calls and call-waiting calls. If the phone is answered by a message recorder, the message will be left on the answering device.

If, after several attempts the call does not successfully go through, the system will stop attempting to call.
