INSTALLING BATTERIES
The main unit of your sensor alarm requires four AA
batteries (not supplied) for power. For the best performance and longest life, we recommend alkaline batteries (available at your local RadioShack store).
Warning: Dispose of old batteries promptly and properly. Do not burn or bury them.
Cautions:
• Use only fresh batteries of the required size and
recommended type.
• Do not mix old and new batteries, different types
of batteries (standard, alkaline, or rechargeable),
or rechargeable batteries of different capacities.
Important: This alarm can use nickelcadmium rechargeable batteries. At
the end of a nickel-cadmium battery’s
useful life, it must be recycled or disposed of properly. Contact your local,
county, or state hazardous waste

RESETTING THE SECURITY CODE
If you ever forget your security code, you can easily
reset it to the default code (1234) by removing and reinstalling the main unit’s batteries (see “Installing Batteries” on Page 5).
Remember that after removing and reinstalling batteries in the main unit, you must program the main unit
to recognize the remote control’s signals (see “Remote Control” on Page 11).
Note: The alarm is disarmed after batteries are installed.
ˆ Installation
To help you avoid false alarms, mount your sensor
alarm’s main unit:
• where it will not be in direct sunlight
• away from heat sources, such as space heaters,
radiators, and exposed light bulbs
Installation
13
49-329.fm Page 14 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
• out of strong drafts, like those caused by central
heating vents or air conditioners or air movement
around fireplaces, exterior walls and windows,
and refrigerators
• so it does not detect your pet’s movements
CHOOSING A MOUNTING LOCATION
The sensor alarm’s main unit is designed to be
mounted on a smooth, flat wall surface. Select a
mounting location where the alarm is most likely to
detect an intruder. We recommend mounting it at a
height of about 51/2 feet (1.7 m). At this height, the
sensor alarm detects motion up to 30 feet (9.1 m)
away and from an angle of up to 110 degrees. However, there is a blind area of about 10 feet (3 m) directly in front of the main unit.

49-329.fm Page 15 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
TEMPORARILY PLACING THE
SENSOR ALARM
Before you permanently mount the sensor alarm,
temporarily place it at the selected location so you
can check the coverage area. You might need to
check several different locations to find the best one.
Place the main unit on a stepladder (for example) at
the recommended height, then move the stepladder
to various locations in the room(s) you want to protect.
Checking the Coverage Area
To be sure the sensor detects motion in the areas you
want to protect, follow these steps.
1. If necessary, disarm the sensor alarm (the red
indicator should not be flashing) by entering the
current security code.
2. Confirm that the area is clear of anything that
might trigger the alarm (such as people and
pets).
Installation

• If the sensor alarm does not chime when you
are within the coverage area, change the main
unit’s location.
• If the sensor alarm chimes when you are outside the coverage area, check the area to see
what is causing the false alarm and remove
the item, or change the main unit’s location.

49-329.fm Page 17 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
MOUNTING THE SENSOR ALARM
After you determine the best location for your sensor
alarm, follow these steps to mount it on the wall.
1. If necessary, disarm the sensor alarm (the red
indicator should not be flashing) by entering the
current security code.
2. Drill two holes 13/8 inches (35 mm) apart. Then
thread a screw into each hole, letting the heads
extend about 3/16 inch (5 mm).
Note: The two supplied mounting screws are
suitable for mounting the sensor alarm’s main
unit on a wooden surface. If you are mounting
the main unit on drywall, masonry, or another
type of surface, use the appropriate mounting
hardware (not supplied).
3. Turn the main unit about 30 degrees counterclockwise, then slide the left screw head into the
horizontal groove on the back of the unit.

49-329.fm Page 21 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
the indicator flashes every second for about 30 seconds, then the alarm siren sounds and the indicator
stays on.
The alarm siren sounds for up to 2 minutes. To stop it
sooner, disarm the alarm (see “Disarming”). If you do
not disarm the alarm, the sensor alarm is still armed
and the siren will sound again the next time the sensor detects motion.
Disarming
To disarm the sensor alarm and stop the alarm from
sounding, enter your four-digit security code. The
main unit beeps twice when you enter the correct
code.
To temporarily silence the alarm using the remote
control, which gives you time to enter your security
code, follow these steps.
1. Press DISARM on the remote control.
The alarm stops sounding for about 30 seconds.
During this pause, the main unit beeps every
second and its red indicator flashes.
2. Enter your four-digit security code within 30 seconds. Otherwise, the alarm will sound again.
Operation
21
49-329.fm Page 22 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
Notes:
• You can temporarily silence the alarm only once
each time you disarm it.
• If entering your security code does not disarm
the sensor alarm, try entering the default code
(1234). If that code does not disarm the alarm
either, remove the sensor alarm from the wall
and remove and reinstall the batteries. This
resets the security code to 1234.
USING THE CHIME ALARM
If you prefer to hear a chime instead of a siren when
the sensor alarm detects motion, follow these steps.
1. If necessary, disarm the sensor alarm (the red
indicator should not be flashing) by entering the
current security code.
2. Set the slide switch on the main unit to CHIME. A
doorbell-type chime immediately sounds.
3. When the sensor detects any motion, the chime
sounds again.
Note: There is no need to arm or disarm the alarm
when using the CHIME setting because the chime
22
Operation
49-329.fm Page 23 Thursday, June 1, 2000 7:46 AM
sounds every time the sensor detects motion. To turn
off the chime, set the slide switch to either INSTANT or
DELAY.
USING THE PANIC ALARM
If you want to startle an intruder (for example) by instantly sounding the alarm siren, simply press PANIC
on the main unit or press ARM and DISARM on the remote control at the same time. The siren alarm immediately sounds, even if the sensor alarm was set to
CHIME or not armed at all. The alarm sounds for up to
2 minutes. To stop it sooner, enter your current security code.
