Emergency button
When the Emergency button is pressed on the remote, Alert PalTM
TM
acknowledges with a bleep. The Alert Pal calls the master number (only) at which
point the master can hear live audio from the Alert PalTM.
Note: Alert PalTM responds to the emergency button in both armed and unarmed
states. If the Alert PalTM is busy, for example sending images, the on-going
operation is cancelled in order to action the emergency alarm.
Pairing your Alert PalTM with the panic buttons
Before use, each panic button must be paired with your Alert PalTM, two are supplied.
1. Send your Alert PalTM an SMS with text #196#SOS1#
2. You will then get an SMS back to say it has accepted your command
3. You then press the panic button and the device is paired
4. To add an additional panic button just repeat the same process using #196#SOS2#
When the panic button is pressed Alert PalTM calls the master and each added
additional user for 5 seconds in turn until someone answers, at which point that
person can hear live audio from Alert PalTM.

Remote Control Continued…
The LED indicator displays on-going voice call. Alert PalTM tries each number
up to three times until someone answers at which point it stops dialling.
Note: If Alert PalTM is calling a landline, check that hanging up the landline clears
the call, some telephone networks do not clear the call when the caller hangs
up making it impossible to dial a new call. We recommend that emergency calls
are made to mobile numbers. DO NOT PROGRAM THE CAMERA TO CALL THE
EMERGENCY SERVICES.
Alternatively send #39#1# to Alert PalTM to change the settings to SMS/MMS mode
ONLY when the panic button is pressed. Then when the panic button is pressed
Alert PalTM acknowledges with a bleep and sends an SMS alert followed by an MMS
with an image to the master and each added additional number.
Note: Alert PalTM responds to the panic button in both armed and unarmed states.
If the Alert PalTM is busy, for example sending images, the on-going operation is
cancelled in order to action the emergency alarm.

the detachable plastic part in the desired location (i.e. kitchen ceiling) with the two
plastic nodules pointing down towards the floor, then attached the main smoke
detector body and twist clockwise to lock in place.
