The Sensor/Transmitters can be
located indoors or outdoors and
when movement is detected, they
send a signal to the Base Station.
The SA12 system consists of a Base
Station, plus 2 Sensor/ Transmitters
and the SA24 System has 2 Base
Stations and 4 Sensor /Transmitters.
Additional Base Stations and
Sensor/ Transmitters can be
purchased separately.
Spe
Bas
The Sensor/Transmitters are
battery operated and they transmit
radio signals to the Base station.
The Base Station has six prerecorded messages, or you can
easily record your own messages.
The Base Station also has 4 “C”
relay dry contact outputs to activate
other devices, such as X10,
Leviton, or Lutron controls.

Setting up the Sensor/Transmitter
Installing the
Sensor/Transmitter
9 Volt Battery
To set the time delay, use a small
screwdriver to turn the adjusting screw
clockwise for longer time delay,
counter clockwise for shorter delay.
Message delay is factory set for
0 minutes.
Set Up Mode: Voice announcement
is played each time the sensor/transmitter is triggered by movement.
Operational Mode: Voice announcement is played once and waits for the
time you set on the time delay, checks
the protected zone and transmits again
only if movement is still detected.
Remove the front cover of the
SoundAlert Sensor/Transmitter by
pressing down on the release tab at
the bottom of the unit (See below).
Connect a 9-volt alkaline battery to
the connector and replace the cover.
NOTE: When closing the sensor, be
sure to position the gasket carefully
to insure weatherproofing.

Activating Switch Contacts
You can use your SoundAlert Sensor/
Transmitter to activate switch contacts
that will transmit to the Base Station.
This would be used, for example, if
you want a doorbell to activate one of
your recorded base station messages.
1. Move the switch on “SW2” to OFF
position (C) (see Diagram 2). This
deactivates sensor.
2. Use a small screwdriver to open dry
contacts (E) on the terminal block (D).
3. Insert the two wires from your
switch contact into the terminal block.
Sensor/Transmitter
Battery Saving Option
To extend the life of your battery, you
may disable the red LED that glows
through the front of the Sensor/
Transmitter. Move the W1 switch (A)
(see Diagram 1) to the “OFF” position.
Setting the
Message Delay
The VR1 (B) (see Diagram 1) sets
the sensor delay. This is the time
between voice announcements. For
example, if the sensor delay is set for
3 minutes (maximum), there will be
3 minutes between voice announcements; regardless of how many
times a person has been detected.

Test the Sensor/Transmitter for
range and correct operation before
permanent installation
If the Base Station doesn’t respond,
check that it has been properly programmed to respond to the Sensor/
Transmitter or relocate the Sensor/
Transmitter to a different location,
possibly closer to the Base Station,
and test again. Refer also to the Base
Station Operating Instructions for
troubleshooting tips.
Choosing the best
Location for your
Sensor/Transmitter
Avoid Direct Sunlight
The Sensor/Transmitter should not
be placed where sunlight will shine
directly on the face of the Sensor/
Transmitter, (Indirect light through
windows will not trigger the sensor).
Avoid hot and cold air currents
Install the Sensor/Transmitter at
least 3 feet from strong forced air
heaters, air conditioners or sources
of drafts, such as doors.
Choose a location at right angles to
the path of movement
The Sensor/Transmitter functions
best when placed so that movement is across the detection patterns, rather than toward the sensor.

Indoors
Installation indoors, on a smooth
surface, can be accomplished with
the double sided tape included with
each SoundAlert Sensor/Transmitter.
Simply peel off one side of the tape
and apply it to the back of the
Sensor/Transmitter mounting bracket.
Peel off the second side of the tape
and press the mounting bracket tape
to the smooth surface or use the
screws provided.
Front of
sensor
Avoid Obstructions
Place the Sensor/Transmitter so
that no large objects obstruct the
detection pattern. Trees and other
moving objects like flags can
cause false triggers.
Install the Sensor/Transmitter
straight up and down
Installing the unit tilted slightly
forward will reduce the detection
range of the Sensor/Transmitter.
Avoid installing the Sensor/
Transmitter on metal surfaces.
Metal surfaces, such as aluminum
siding, will reduce the radio signal
transmission range of the
Sensor/Transmitter, unless it is
installed near the edge of a window.
Weather resistance
Make certain to reposition the rubber
gasket around the edge of the
Sensor/Transmitter carefully when
reattaching the Sensor/Transmitter
cover.

Programming
Sensor/Transmitters to
Activate Additional
Messages
Changing the Sensor/
Transmitter code
The Sensor/Transmitter included in
the SoundAlert kit comes preprogrammed from the factory and will
activate any Base unit within range.
If you decide to isolate a Sensor/
Transmitter to one receiver only or
change the Code, follow these
steps:
The Sensor/Transmitters included in the
SoundAlert kits are pre-programmed from
the factory and will function without modification. If you decide to change the code
or add more Sensor/ Transmitters, follow
these steps:
1. Remove the front cover of the
Sensor/Transmitter by pressing
down on the release tab at the top
of the unit.
1. Connect the SoundAlert Base Station
to a power source and turn the unit “ON”
with the “POWER” switch.
2. The Base station has a 3 position slide
switch. Move the switch to the
“PROGRAM” position
3. Set the 8 dipswitches in any setting
DIFFERENT from your other
Sensor/Transmitter settings.
4. Activate the Sensor/Transmitter
by moving your hand in front of the
lens and observing the LED flashing
on the front. (The Base Station
“SET UP” LED will glow, indicating
that the transmission has been
received).
5. While the “SET UP” LED is glowing,
press the button for the message that
you want activated by that Sensor/
Transmitter, #1-#6. The “SET UP”
LED light will stop glowing, indicating
that the Sensor/Transmitter is now
programmed to activate the selected
voice message.
6. Return the slide switch to the
“RUN” position.
7. Repeat steps 2 through 4 to program
additional Sensor/Transmitters to
each voice message.
2. To change the code, set the 8-key
dipswitch to any setting different from
your other Sensor/Transmitter settings.
3. The new code setting must be
programmed into the Base Station
(see page 11 for detailed information).
4. If activating the same message is
desired for any number of additional
Sensor/Transmitters, set the dipswitch
of each Sensor/Transmitter to the
SAME code positions. Programming
of the SoundAlert Base Station is not
necessary for these additional
Sensor/Transmitters, if the original
codes have already been
programmed.

How to set-up the X-10,
Leviton, or Lutron RadioRa
Interface
You can control lights or other
devices with your SoundAlert by
using a module provided by others
(X-10, Leviton and Lutron RadioRa).
There are four C relay outputs on the
bottom of the Base Station.
When a Sensor/Transmitter is triggered, you have the option of also
triggering a module (such as the
X-10 Powerflash) attached to one of
these dry contact relay outputs.
The four relayl outputs (labeled
NO.1 thru NO.4) correlate to Zones
#1 thru #4.
Each contact has three outputs.
The one on the left is NO (normally
open), the middle is a common
ground, and the one on the right is
NC (normally closed).
Contacts are rated to carry 24 VDC
or 117 VAC at 1 AMP.
Common Ground
NO
(Normally Open)
SA Manuel.indd 11
NC
(Normally Closed)

If you want to trigger a desk lamp,
for example (in addition to playing
the voice message) when the
Sensor for Zone #1 detects movement, you must insert wire (not
supplied) from the module into one
of the Base Station output terminals
as shown below.
(X-10
Powerflash
module
available
from others)
Then plug the lamp into the module.
One of the wires is placed in the
"middle" or common output of
NO.1 on the bottom of the Base
Station. The other wire goes into the
NO (open) or NC (closed) output
directly to the left or right depending
on the operation you require.
If you plug the other wire into the
NC (normally closed) contact, a
triggering of the sensor forces the
circuit open, breaking the circuit. In
the desk lamp example, this turns
the module and the lamp off.
If you plug the other wire into the
NO (normally open) contact, a triggering of the sensor forces the
contacts together, initiating a circuit.
In the desk lamp example, this
turns the module and the lamp on.
11
4/29/05 3:06:50 PM
To set the output duration
of each connection:
1. Move the slide switch to the
“RUN” position.
2. Press and hold the “PLAYBACK”
button for 2 seconds to activate
SETUP MODE.
3. In SETUP MODE, toggle
through the setting sequence for
each message button #1 - #4 to set
the output duration for each terminal
output connection. The three LED’s
will indicate the time duration
setting (see chart below).
4. Press the “PLAYBACK” button to
lock in each chosen setting and
return to operating mode.
5. Repeat steps 1,2,3 and 4 to set
time duration for each connection.
Note: To disarm the SoundAlert
System when the “CONTINUOUS”
setting is triggered, turn OFF the
Base Station with the “POWER”
switch. When “POWER” is turned
back ON, the system will return to
operating mode.
For the Hearing Impaired
Recorded messages can be heard
from an intercom or Public Address
system by connecting the amplifier
to the LINE OUT terminals located in
the compartment under the Base
Station (See below).
Use the volume control of the
amplifier, NOT the “Volume” knob on
the SoundAlert Base Station.
