ADDITIONAL SAFETY NOTES FOR CANADIAN USERS
The following items are included as part of the CS-03
Requirements. The standard connecting arrangement for the
equipment is CA11A. This product meets the applicable Industry
Canada technical specifications.
NOTE: The Canadian Department of Communications 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

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.
Warning: 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

INSTALLATION
OPERATIONS
The AlertMaster AL12 Remote Receiver is designed to work only
with the AlertMaster AL10 and AL11. The AlertMaster AL10 and
AL11 Notification systems are designed to work with as many
AlertMaster AL12 Remote Receivers as desired, placed up to 80
feet away from the base unit. For best reception, keep the antenna
in an upright position.
The AL12 console has six indicator lights for each of the alerting
functions of the AlertMaster Notification System. Some functions
require optional accessories to be purchased.
Any time the AlertMaster Remote Receiver is activated by any
function(s), it will reset automatically after two minutes, or you
can use the RESET button on top of the console. (The alarm
clock, however, is activated for one hour, not two minutes. It can
be shut off by pressing the SNOOZE or RESET / PAGE buttons
on the AL10, or the RESET button on top of the AL12 console.)
Refer to the AL10 User Guide’s section on “Operations, Monitoring
Functions” for the lamp signaling pattern for each function.
Lamp Control
Press the center LAMP CONTROL button to turn the
AlertMaster AL12’s lamp on and off. In order for the control to
work, ensure that the lamp is turned on prior to plugging the
lamp jack into the back of the AL12.
LAMP FLASHER ON / OFF
Use the LAMP FLASHER ON / OFF switch to turn the lamp
flashing function on or off. The lights on the front of the unit and
the Lamp Control remain active. The LAMP FLASHER ON / OFF
switch is located on the back of the unit, below the DIP switch
rubber cover.

CHANNEL SETTINGS
CHANNEL SETTINGS
The AlertMaster System uses radio signals to communicate
between the console unit and all of its accessories. For the
accessories (Door Announcer, Baby Sound Monitor and Audio
Alarm Transmitter) to “talk” to the base unit, they all have to be
on the same “channel.” A DIP switch is used for channel selection.

Your system and all of the accessories have been preset in the
factory to a standard channel. Under normal operating conditions,
there is no adjustment necessary.
If your system encounters interference and repeatedly activates
by itself for no obvious reasons, it may be triggered by a system
nearby in your neighborhood.
If necessary, check the DIP switch settings on all components of
your AlertMaster Notification System to ensure they are identical.
Use a pen or pencil to
set DIP switches to
match exactly
Wireless remote receiver (AL12)
If interference from another AlertMaster Notification System or
other wireless source is present, change channel switch settings on
all components.
1. Unplug, and locate DIP switches on the back of the AL12.
Lift rubber cover to access the switch.
2. Unplug and locate DIP switches on the back of the AL10
console (if present). Lift rubber cover to access the
switch.
3. Use a pen to change the DIP switch position on both
units. For example, change the position of switch #4 on
both units. All settings need to be identical for the
system to work.
4. It will be necessary to change the switch settings on
each of your other AL series accessories.
