Wireless Intercom Door Chime
Your RadioShack Wireless Intercom
Door Chime operates as a two-tone
doorbell and an intercom. The chime
is simple to install because it requires
no wiring. Your chime's two channel
switch and digital coding prevent other
transmitters or radio devices from
sounding the chime. To conserve
power, both the receiver and transmitter automatically turn off 30 seconds
after you stop using them.
The chime includes these features:
Indicators — light so you can easily
confirm the chime’s operation.

The transmitter and receiver are
equipped with two selectable operation
channels and two selectable digital
codes, to ensure positive operation and
prevent interference from similar products nearby. Select the same channel
and code number for both the transmitter and the receiver.
Installing the Transmitter's
Batteries
The transmitter uses four AA batteries
(not supplied) for power. For the best
performance and longest life, we recommend RadioShack alkaline batteries.
To set the channel, slide CHANNEL A/B
on the side of the receiver to A or B, then
set the transmitter’s channel switch
(shown here) to the same setting.

Cautions:
Code
• 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.
Follow these steps to install batteries.
Note: If the door chime occasionally
sounds without anyone pressing BELL
on the transmitter, change the channel
settings.
To set the code, remove the battery
compartment cover and slide CODE to
either 1 or 2 on the receiver, then set the
transmitter’s code switch to the same
setting.
1. Use a flat blade screwdriver to

3. Be sure the rubber seal around the
battery compartment is properly
positioned, then replace the cover
and tighten the screw.
Replace all four batteries if the transmitter’s indicator lights dimly or not at all
when you press any button on the transmitter.
2. If the chime does not sound, make
certain that the transmitter and receiver are set to the same channel
and code.
Warning: Dispose of old batteries
promptly and properly. Do not burn or
bury them.
3. Adjust VOLUME on the receiver to
the desired listening level.
Mounting the Transmitter
Caution: If you do not plan to use the
door chime for a two week period, remove the batteries. Batteries can leak
chemicals that can destroy electronic
parts.
Mount the transmitter within 50 feet of
the receiver using the supplied mounting
hardware. Depending upon the mounting surface material of your home (wood
siding, brick face, and so on), you might
need to consult your local hardware
store for a different type of mounting
hardware.
Testing the Chime
Before permanently mounting the
chime, follow these steps to test the system
Note: While the transmitter is waterresistant, it is not waterproof. If you
are mounting the transmitter outdoors, select a location that provides
some shielding from the elements.
1. With the receiver plugged into a
standard AC outlet, adjust VOLUME
to its middle position. Then press
Follow these steps to mount the transmitter.

2. Align the metal mounting bracket
with the holes you just drilled and
drive a screw through the bracket
into each hole. Do not overtighten
the screws.
Mounting the Receiver
To mount the receiver onto a typical
sheetrock wall, use the two supplied pan
washer screws and anchors. Otherwise, consult your local hardware store
for suitable hardware.
1. Drill two 3/16-inch diameter holes into
the mounting surface about 43/16
inches (106 mm) apart
3. Align the slot on the back of the
transmitter with the hook on the
mounting bracket. Carefully push
the transmitter onto the hook and
slide it down to secure it.
2. Insert an anchor into each drilled
hole, then thread a screw into each
anchor, letting the head of each
screw extend about 1/8 inch from the
wall.

To use your RadioShack Wireless Intercom Door Chime system for a long time:
4. Align the receiver's keyhole slots
with the screw heads and slide the
receiver down to secure it.
• Keep the system dry. If it gets wet,
wipe it dry immediately.
• Use and store the system only in
normal temperature environments.
OPERATION
• Handle the system gently and carefully. Do not drop either component.
Your caller presses BELL on the door
transmitter to sound the receiver’s
chime.
• Keep the system away from dust
and dirt, and wipe the system with a
damp cloth occasionally to keep it
looking new.
Note: If the chime sounds when the
transmitter's button is not pressed,
change the channel settings on both the
receiver and transmitter.
Modifying or tampering with the system’s internal components can cause a
malfunction and invalidate its warranty.
If your system is not performing as it
should, take it to your local RadioShack
store for assistance.
Hold down TALK on the receiver (the red
indicator lights) and speak in a normal
tone into the transmitter’s microphone
from about 2–3 inches away. When you
release TALK, the caller can reply by
holding down TALK on the transmitter.
THE FCC WANTS YOU TO
KNOW
Notes:
Your chime system might cause TV or
radio interference even when it is operating properly. To determine whether
the system is causing the interference,
remove the transmitter’s battery or unplug the receiver from AC power. If the
interference goes away, the transmitter
or the receiver is causing the interference. Try to eliminate the interference
by moving the TV or radio away from the
transmitter or contacting your local RadioShack store for help. If you cannot
eliminate the interference, the FCC requires that you stop using the system.
• The receiver and transmitter automatically turn off if no one presses a
button within about 30 seconds.
Pressing any button on either unit
turns on the power again.
• If the temperature approaches the
lower end of the intercom’s operating range (around 0°F), you might
notice some sound distortion. This is
not a malfunction.
• A wireless telephone operating at
49MHz can interfere with the system.
