label identifies certified equipment.
This certification means that the
equipment meets certain
telecommunications network
protective operational and safety
requirements. The Department
does not guarantee that the
equipment will operate to the
user’s satisfaction. Before installing
this equipment, users should
ensure that it is permissible to be
connected to the facilities of the
local telecommunications company.
The equipment must also be
installed using an acceptable
method of connection. In some
cases, the company’s inside
wiring associated with a single
line individual service may be
extended by means of a certified
connector assembly (telephone
extension cord). The customer
should be aware that compliance
with the above conditions may not
prevent degradation of service in
some situations. Repairs to certified
equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance
facility designated by the supplier.
Any repairs or alterations made
by the user to this equipment, or
equipment malfunctions, may give
the telecommunications company
cause to request the user disconnect
the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own
protection that the electrical
ground connections of the power
utility, telephone lines and internal
metallic water pipe system, if
present, are connected together.
This precaution may be particularly
important in rural areas.
CAUTION: Users should not
attempt to make such connections
themselves, but should contact the
appropriate electric inspection
authority, or electrician, as
appropriate. The Ringer Equivalent
Number is an indication of the
maximum number of terminals
allowed to be connected to a
telephone interface. The
termination on an interface may
consist of any combination of
devices subject only to the
requirement that the sum of the
Ringer Equivalent Number of all
the devices not exceed five.

right after it receives a Phone
signal, the indicator will change
from PHONE to SENSOR. The
priority for each notification signal
is shown as follows:
1. Master Reset
2. Audio Alarm
3. Baby Sound
4. Room Sound
5. Phone
6. Door
7. Paging
8. Alarm Clock

connected to your Alertmaster
system will go on automatically
every evening and turn off later in

CASE OF DIFFICULTY
importantespara el usuario
Channel Setting
The Alertmaster System uses special
radio signals to communicate between
the console unit and all its accessories.
For the accessories (Door Announcer,
Baby Sound Monitor, Audio Alarm
Transmitter and Motion Sensor) to
activate the base unit, they all have to
be on the same "channel." A "DIP
Switch" is used for channel selection.
Your system and all the accessories
have been preset in the factory to a
standard channel setting. Under
normal operating conditions, there is
no adjustment necessary.
If your system encounters interference
and repeatedly activates itself for no
obvious reason, it may be
triggered by a system nearby in your
neighborhood.
If the interference from another
Alertmaster Notification System or
other wireless source is present,
change channel switch settings on all
components.
1. Unplug AC power and locate
DIP Switch (a 4-position switch)
on the underside of the Alertmaster
AM-6000.
2. Open the battery compartment
of the doorbell.
3. Change the switch position of
each switch on both units using
a ball point pen. All settings
need to be identical for the
system to work. See Figure 5.
4. Change the switch settings on
each of your other accessories
(Remote Receiver, Audio Alarm
Transmitter, Baby Sound
Monitor, etc.) to match the new
channel setting.
5. Replace all covers and return
accessories to their proper
places. Press LAMP CONTROL /
RESET button once to reset the unit.
