Wow, thanks for that link.
I never knew what the RJ-31X jack was for. I just knew it was different than the -11. When I tried to put in the DSL filter, and it didn't fit, I was thinking of just replacing the jack, but then I saw all the different color wires. I will have to check to see if everything is wired up correctly.
Yes, I have an ADT system, with them monitoring, but when my contract is up with them, I will probably tie it into the rest of my HA system. Forgive me that I have sinned. I didn't know any better before I started reading the HA forums!
I also like that idea of using a pair as another alarm zone, so if they cut the wires, the alarm will sound. I've always thought it was silly to have your telco wires in a box outside your home that anyone can open and cut the wires.
