Question

How do I use my Lamp Modules with Protector Plus?

Answer

Installing the Lamp Module to control the security light

  • Set the House Code and Unit Code dials to match the settings on the Security Console. This allows it to be controlled from the security light buttons on the remotes.
  • Plug a lamp into the Lamp Module and plug the Lamp Module into a convenient AC outlet, preferably an unswitched one to ensure that the lamp will always operate when the alarm is triggered.

Installing the Lamp Module to control other lights

  • Set the House Code dial to match the House Code set on the Security Console.
  • Set the Unit Code dial to an unused code which can be controlled from the Security Remote (switches 1-4 control Unit Codes 1-4) or from any other remote or plug-in controller as required.
  • Plug a lamp into the Lamp Module and plug the Lamp Module into a convenient AC outlet, preferably an unswitched one to ensure that the lamp will always operate when the alarm is triggered.

Local control

The Lamp Module includes circuitry to sense the lamp’s own on/off switch to turn the lamp on locally. To switch a lamp on, turn the lamp’s own switch off then on again.

Using the Keychain Remote (after installation into the console)

Press LIGHTS ON and LIGHTS OFF to turn on and off a light connected to a Lamp Module with the same House Code and Unit Code as set on the Security Console.

Using the Security Remote (after installation into the console)

  • Press SECURITY LIGHT ON and OFF to control a light connected to a lamp module with codewheels set to the same House Code and Unit Code as set on the Security Console.
  • Press the ON and OFF buttons under SECURITY LIGHT, numbered 1 through 4, to control Lamp Modules set to the same House Code (red dial) as the Security Console and whose Unit Codes are 1 through 4.
