Can I make a
different recording for every transmitter?
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.
The Sensor/Transmitters can be used indoors and outside. They are
designed to withstand weather including rain and snow but are not
designed to be submerged in water. When installed outside the
Sensor/Transmitters do best when in a covered area and not in direct
How does the
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.
How far will the
Sensor/Transmitter send a signal to the Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a signal in an open area up to
1000 feet to the Receiver/Speaker. Through walls the
Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a signal to the Receiver/Speaker up
to 300 feet.
branches trigger a false signal?
It is possible for branches to cause a false trigger. The best
location to install the Sensor/Transmitter in an area where tree
branches and bushes will not be blown by a wind in the detection zone
of the Sensor/Transmitters.
Will birds or
dogs or cats trigger a false signal?
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
How often will
the Sensor/Transmitter send a signal?
The Sensor/Transmitter has two modes for sensing movement and sending
a signal. The (setup) mode that is set at the factory identifies all
movement and transmits each detected movement to the Receiver/Speaker.
The battery saver mode will detect movement every 3 minutes and then
transmit to the Receiver/Speaker. Removing the jumper in the
Sensor/Transmitter will setup this mode.
Will the system
work through walls of my home?
The system is designed to function through the interior walls of a
home and exterior walls of a home. The Sensor/Transmitters have
difficulty transmitting a signal through aluminum siding or metal
surfaces and are best located on a window in that situation.
Sensor/Transmitters will the system recognize?
There is no limit to the number of Sensor/Transmitters that can be
installed with a system. There are 3 voice messages that are available
for the Sensor/Transmitters to activate.
How long will
the Receiver/Speaker work off the battery?
The 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 activity.
Sensor/Transmitter be recognized by more than one Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitter can be set to activate an unlimited number of
Sensor/Transmitter recognize a small child?
The Sensor/Transmitter is intended to identify children 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
Sensor/Transmitter work in the dark?
Yes, the Sensor/Transmitter will work in the dark or in full light.
How long will
the battery last in the Sensor/Transmitter?
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
can 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 monitor?
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.
