How do you keep other phones in your house from listening?

Question by LOLAA: How do you keep other phones in your house from listening?
I need to talk on the house line, which has about six phones connected all throughout the house. Which means that if I'm talking to someone then anyone else in the house can listen in using any of the other five phones. Is there any way I can look for a button or option on one of the house phones to keep other phones from listening?

Best answer:

Answer by Carl N
There is. It requires some wiring. Viking Electronics makes a privacy module. You insert it between your phone and all the rest of the phones in the house and you lock out all the other sets.
Here's a link to the practice for the whole family of TeleGuard products. http://www.vikingelectronics.com/products/pdf/privacy.pdf

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved construction of the NJ-NY Expansion Project, also known as the Spectra Pipeline. The Spectra Pipeline's radon-laced, fracked gas could shorten the lifespan of up to of 30,000 New Yorkers due to lung cancer. There is also risk the pipeline—which would run near parks, a chemical plant, under the Hudson, and emerge near the West Village High Line—could blow-up, just as a pipeline with similar specs exploded in San Bruno, California in 2010.

The Hudson River Park Trust is granting an easement to Spectra Energy for their pipeline to cross state lines and receive sanctuary in the West Village. In order to accommodate Spectra, the Trust will have to change the Hudson River Park Act. More on that here.

Oh yeah, HRPT also wants to amend the act to allow for condo development along the Hudson. As Picture the Homeless has pointed out, there are more vacant homes in NYC than there are homeless. Instead of building more condos for the wealthy and destroying what little green space we have in New York, we need to ensure families have a roofs over their heads and revitalized New York's ecosystems.

OWS Environmental Solidarity will be ratcheting up the fight against the Spectra Pipeline this summer. Thursday's rally kicks off our campaign. On Tuesday we'll be paying FERC a visit:
