PERS-4200 Personal Emergency Reporting System Quick Guide
PERS Console Operating Modes
Your PERS Console operates in three operating
“modes”. Each mode sets the Console to act differently
to match your lifestyle at different times of the day.
In any of the three modes, the Console is always ready
to report an emergency if you press the HELP button
or activate one of your portable emergency sensors.
Home Mode
Home Mode is for when you are at home during the day. In Home
Mode, the Console knows if your emergency sensors are present
and ready to use. If a sensor does not regularly report to the
Console, a trouble report can be sent to your monitoring service.
Away Mode
Away Mode is for when you are going to be away from home. In
Away Mode, the Console knows that your portable emergency
sensors might be away from the Console and will abstain from
reporting any sensors that are missing. Console announcements
and reminder messages are also suppressed in Away Mode.
Night Mode
Night Mode is for nighttime when you are sleeping or do not
wish to be disturbed. In Night Mode, Console operates the same
as in Home Mode except that announcements and reminder
messages are suppressed.

Important Wireless Information
Linear radio controls provide a reliable communications link and fill an important need in portable wireless signaling. However, there are
some limitations which must be observed.
• For U.S. installations only: The radios are required to comply
with FCC Rules and Regulations as Part 15 devices. As such,
they have limited transmitter power and therefore limited range.
• A receiver cannot respond to more than one transmitted signal
at a time and may be blocked by radio signals that occur on or
near their operating frequencies, regardless of code settings.
• Changes or modifications to the device may void FCC compliance.
• Infrequently used radio links should be tested regularly to
protect against undetected interference or fault.
• A general knowledge of radio and its vagaries should be
gained prior to acting as a wholesale distributor or dealer, and
these facts should be communicated to the ultimate users.
This device complies with Industry Canada and Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This
device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may
cause undesired operation.
• Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d’Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils radio exempts de licence. L’exploitation
est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes : (1) l’appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et (2) l’utilisateur de l’appareil doit
accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi, même si le brouillage est susceptible d’en compromettre le fonctionnement.
The antenna used for the transmitter must be installed to provide a separation distance of at least 7.87 inches (20 cm) from all persons, and
must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter other than those supplied with the PERS-4200 console.
• L’antenne de l’émetteur doit être installé à une distance d’au moins 7,87 pouces (20 cm) de toutes les personnes, et ne doit pas être
placé ou utilisé en conjonction avec toute autre antenne ou tout autre émetteur autres que ceux fournis avec la console PERS-4200.
