Q1:) How does the Sensor/Transmitter work?
A1:) The Sensor/Transmitter
is a passive infrared receiver (PIR).
It detects movement by the change
it causes in background temperature
and then transmits a radio signal
to the Receiver/Speaker that movement
has been detected.
Is the Sensor/Transmitter waterproof?
Sensor/Transmitters can be used
indoors and outside. They are designed
to withstand weather including
and snow but are not designed
to be submerged in water. When installed
outside the Sensor/Transmitters
best when in a covered area and
not in direct sunlight.
far will the Sensor/Transmitter
send a signal to the Receiver/Speaker?
transmit a signal in an
open area up to 1000
feet to the Receiver/Speaker.
Through walls the Sensor/Transmitters
transmit a signal to the Receiver/Speaker
up to 300 feet.
Can I make a different recording
for every transmitter?
If you put one in your garage and one
in your backyard, the recording for
the garage transmitter could be something
like, "There's someone in the
garage." and the back yard could
say, "There's someone in the backyard." This
is how you would be notified if someone
trespassed into those areas.
tree branches trigger a false
A5:) It is possible for
branches to cause a false
trigger. The best location
to install the Sensor/Transmitter
in an area where tree branches
will not be blown by a wind in
the detection zone of the Sensor/Transmitters.
Will birds or dogs or cats trigger
A6:) The Sensor/Transmitters are designed
to ignore small
animals under 40 Lbs.
To reduce the possibility for a
false trigger caused by movement
of a small
animal it is recommended that the
Sensor/Transmitters be mounted
at a height of 7 1/2 feet
above the ground. The lower the
Sensor/Transmitters are mounted the
higher the chance
of picking up a small animal.
often will the Sensor/Transmitter
send a signal?
A7:) The Sensor/Transmitter
has two modes for sensing
movement and sending a
signal. The (setup) mode that is
set at the factory identifies
and transmits each detected movement
to the Receiver/Speaker. The battery
saver mode will detect movement
every 3 minutes and then transmit
Receiver/Speaker. Removing the
jumper in the Sensor/Transmitter
the system work through walls
of my home?
A8:) The system is
designed to function through
the interior walls of a home
and exterior walls of a home. The
have difficulty transmitting a
signal through aluminum siding or
surfaces and are best located
on a window in
will the system recognize?
long will the Receiver/Speaker
work off the battery?
Receiver/Speaker is designed
to function as a power
back up in the
event of a power outage. The
Receiver/Speaker battery will function
for up to
2 hours depending on the
amount of speaker
Can a Sensor/Transmitter be recognized
by more than one Receiver/Speaker?
A11:) The Sensor/Transmitter can be
set to activate an unlimited number
Will the Sensor/Transmitter recognize
a small child?
Sensor/Transmitter is intended to
of about 40 Lbs
or larger when the Sensor/Transmitter
is installed at a height of 7
1/2 feet above the ground. If
it is desired
to identify smaller children
then the Sensor/Transmitter will
need to be
installed lower to the ground.
When animals are present
they may create
a false trigger.
Will the Sensor/Transmitter work
in the dark?
A12:) Yes, the Sensor/Transmitter will
in the dark or in full
How long will the battery last
in the Sensor/Transmitter?
A14:) The battery in the Sensor/Transmitter
can last up to 1 year depending
on if the Sensor/Transmitter is set
to battery saver mode. Temperature
also affect the life of any battery.
Operating a battery at cold temperature
will reduce its life.
How large of an area do the Sensor/Transmitters
A15:) The Sensor/Transmitters are designed
to monitor a
40-foot by 40-foot area
when they are installed at 7
1/2 feet above the ground and
there are no obstructions.
Where can I get additional Sensor/Transmitters?
A16:) Additional Sensor/Transmitters are
on this web site.
