Questions Setting Up Door/Window Sensors Answer Installing the Door/Window Sensor

  • Attach the Door/Window sensor to the wall using the mounting screws provided.
  • Fit the Door/Window sensor as high as possible at the top of the door/window.
  • Make sure the arrows on the magnetic switch halves are facing each other and that

they separate cleanly when the door or window is opened.

  • Set the DELAY slider switch to MIN to always trigger the alarm instantly, or to MAX to trigger

the alarm after a preset entry delay when the system is armed in DELAY mode (see the alarm manual for Delay Mode instructions). Registering the Door/Window Sensor with the Security Console

  • Fit two AA Alkaline batteries in the battery compartment.
  • Press and hold the TEST button for about a second. The LED indicator light flashes twice when you

release it. This confirms it has generated a new security code.

  • Set the slider switch on the console to INSTALL.
  • Press the TEST button on the Door/Window sensor or open the Door/Window that it is

attached to. The console chimes once to confirm and the next available zone LED lights.

  • Return the slider switch on the console to the RUN1 or RUN2 position.

Testing the Door/Window sensor

  • Set the slider switch on the security console to RUN2.
  • Open the door or window with the sensor attached. The console chimes to acknowledge the sensor is tripped

and the zone LED lights. Note: As with all radio frequency transmitter devices, electrical fields, metal doors or door/window frames, and appliances can cause interference that decreases the strength of a transmitted signal. Re-orienting the sensor or putting the console in a higher location may increase your ability to send and receive the necessary signals.
