UC-260 Wireless Acoustic Indicator
The UC-260 can be used as a wireless indoor siren, a melody
doorbell or as a chime. It can also function as a small house alarm. The
UC-260 is compatible with Jablotron wireless control panels (JA-60 and
JA-65), JA-60 wireless detectors and RC-11, RC-22 and RC-28 remote
controls. Several triggering devices can be used simultaneously and
different melodies can be assigned to each device. Two different sound
levels can be selected. The UC-260 provides entrance and exit delay
chirps too, when used with a control panel.
Adding components
If you want to add additional doorbell buttons or detectors or if you
want to select another melody for an existing component, than:
1. Unplug the UC-260 from the outlet and wait for 5 seconds.
2. Plug it in again.
3. The button will light – press it and hold it down. After hearing a
short beep, release the button. The flashing button indicates it is
in the programming mode.
4. Enrolling new components (or selecting another melody):
• Doorbell button (RC-11, RC-22, RC-28) can be enrolled by
pressing a button on the controller. Multiple pressing of the
controller’s button will allow you to scroll to a desired melody.
• Detector - chime mode (JA-60 detectors) can be enrolled by
inserting batteries into a detector. If you remove the batteries and
insert them again you can scroll to a desired melody (wait for 10
seconds before reinsertion).
5. Control panel – siren mode (JA-60 or 65) – while in the service
mode of the control panel, enter code 299.Up to 8 doorbell buttons
or detectors can be used with one UC-260.
6. Exit the programming mode by pressing the UC-260 button briefly.

Installation
UC-260 is powered directly from a power outlet. The device should
not be installed close to any metal structures or other objects
obstructing radio signal transmission.
Deleting components
Press and hold a button on the UC-260 and plug the UC-260 into
the mains outlet. Two beeps can be heard and all components will be
erased.
Enrolling of wireless components
1. Press and hold the button on the top of the UC-260.
2. Plug in the UC-260 to an outlet and hold the button until you hear
2 beeps.
3. Release the button – The button will begin to flash, indicating it is in
the programming mode.
4. Enrolling of components:
• Doorbell button (RC-11, RC-22, RC-28) can be enrolled by
pressing a button on the controller. Multiple pressing of the
controller’s button will allow you to scroll to a desired melody.
• Detector - chime mode (JA-60 detectors) can be enrolled by
inserting batteries into a detector. If you remove the batteries and
insert them again you can scroll to a desired melody (wait for 10
seconds before reinsertion).
• Control panel – siren mode (JA-60 or 65) – while in the service
mode of the control panel, enter code 299.
5. Up to 8 doorbell buttons or detectors can be used with one UC-260.

Doorbell mode
Wireless siren mode
After pressing a doorbell button, the UC-260 will play a selected
melody. Different melodies can be chosen for each button, if desired.
If you want to change a melody, enter the programming mode (See
Adding components) and press the button until a desired melody is
selected.
If a control panel is enrolled to a UC-260, the UC-260’s light
indicator copies the status of the PgY control panel output. If an alarm
is triggered, the siren of the UC-260 sounds. Also an exit and entrance
delay can be indicated. The exit and entrance delay can be set in two
ways:
Detector chime mode
1. When a control panel is enrolled and one beep is heard, than both exit
and entrance delays will be performed regardless of the control panel’s
setting.
2. When two beeps are heard, the UC-260 copies the control panel’s
setting of the exit and entrance delays.
If an enrolled detector is triggered, the UC-260 will play a chosen
melody. The melody can be changed if desired (See Adding
components).
A detector enrolled to the UC-260 can be enrolled to a JA-60 or
JA-65 security control panel too. For example, this way a wireless door
detector can activate a chime with the UC-260 and at the same time it
can trigger an alarm system.
Note: JA-60P motion detector uses a special sleeping mode
feature (can be set to 5 min. or 1 min.). Therefore it cannot detect
more frequent movements in a covered area.
You can toggle between these two settings each time you enroll the
control panel to the UC-260 (entering 299 code while in the service
mode).
Alarm mode
Exit and Entrance delay setting
The UC-260 can be used as a simple stand-alone wireless
alarm. This mode can be combined with the doorbell mode too.
In order to set the alarm mode enter the programming mode
first. Then press and hold both buttons of RC-11 for 3 sec. This
RC-11 will be than used for arming and disarming the alarm. You
can add more remote controls later. Up to 8 detectors, remote
controls or doorbell buttons can be used in an alarm mode.
Description above corresponds to a factory setting of the UC-260.
It can be changed using an enrolled RC-11 remote control while the
UC-260 is in its programming mode.
• Press A button – alarm will indicate exit delay but not entrance
delay, detectors trigger a siren when the alarm is armed. (Factory
setting)
• Press B button – alarm will not indicate exit and entrance delay;
detectors trigger a siren when the alarm is armed.
• Press both buttons – alarm will indicate exit and entrance delay,
detectors trigger a siren when the alarm is armed and the first
enrolled detector (enrolled before RC-11) activates a chime
function.
Note: Alarm mode cannot be selected if a JA-60 or JA-65 control
panel has been enrolled.
Controlling the alarm
If you press the A button of the remote control, you will arm the
alarm. For delayed JA-60 detectors, a 15 seconds exit delay will be
allowed. Beeping can optionally indicate an exit delay.
If you press the B button of the remote control, you will disarm
the system.
• If you need to replace batteries in a detector, it is necessary to
unplug the UC-260 first! Otherwise opening a cover of a detector
will trigger a tamper alarm.
If you activate a detector set to a delayed mode when the alarm
is armed, you will hear entrance delay beeping (15 sec.) first.
If the alarm is not disarmed with in this period the siren will go off
for 3 minutes. You can stop the siren by pressing the B button of the
remote control.
