You will need our HomeSafe Wireless Siren, Remote Control, and one Adjustable Motion Sensor.
Match the remote control and then the motion sensor to the siren. If you need help matching, you can find matching instructions here.
On the bottom of the siren there are control switches, shown above. The left switch can be set for siren only, siren and light, or light only. Set the switch in the middle (Light Only). The middle switch sets the siren to activate in 0 seconds, or a 10 second delay. Set this switch to 0S (0 seconds) and it will activate immediately when movement is detected.
Adjustable Motion Sensor:
The motion sensor detects with PIR. Anything that moves in the window will cause a trigger to the siren to activate. To minimize detection of anything other than someone at the door, the sensor can be adjusted.
In the battery compartment of the adjustable motion sensor, shown above, there is a distance / sensitivity switch. Turned all the way down, the sensor will detect about 10 feet. Turned all the way up, it will detect over 30 feet. Set the sensor distance to be about the distance it is from the door you want to monitor.
On both sides of the adjustable motion sensor, shown above, there are settings to reduce the detection size of the sensor window. If both sides of the sensor windows are set to “0”, the sensor may not detect anything. If one side is set to “0”, it will close off one half of the sensor window on the side where the setting switch is located. As an example: a pond located near the door. Setting the sensor window door to “0” on the side where the pond is, stops detection of animals at the pond.
After testing, more on that below, you can mount the motion sensor(s) outside close to and point it/them at the door(s) you want motion to activate the siren light. Keep in mind that the sensor will detect any movement in the detection window including animals trying to get in the door(s).
The remote control:
There are three buttons on the remote control, shown above: Arm, Disarm and Panic. Pressing Arm will cause a series of short beeps as the siren controller begins to arm the siren. In about 60 seconds there will be a second beep to signal the siren is armed and ready. Any sensor motion detected will send a signal to the siren light to activate. Pressing disarm will cause a tone signaling that the siren is disarmed. When disarmed the siren will not activate when sensor(s) detects movement. When the panic button is pressed, only the siren light will flash, due the siren being set to light only. It will reset after about 90 seconds.
After everything is matched, and settings are made, free stand the siren horn in an area that it will be seen if it is flashing, as an example, on top of the TV. Arm the unit and take the motion sensor to the door you want to monitor, but don’t mount it yet. (If you have more than one sensor, make sure they are not sending a signal.) Test the setup by causing motion in the sensor window. The siren horn should flash immediately and reset after about 90 seconds. If all is well, you can then mount the motion sensor. If you have other sensors for other doors, do the same.
A note on operation distance of the sensor to the siren horn.:
These sensors are designed to send a signal to the siren at up to 300 feet. If the signal is sent through walls, that distance can be reduced. We have a test model set up and the activation signal travels through one exterior wall and two interior walls.
If you frequent other areas of your home and need to see the silent doorbell there, additional sirens can be added. Just match the remote control(s) and sensor(s) to any additional sirens and be sure both arm when you press the remote control arm button. There is no need to deactivate this system, because there is no sound. If there is a power failure, batteries (designed for backup only) in the siren(s) will keep it/them operational until the power comes back on.
Be Safe Out There!
