Model 835LM Overview PERIMETER ALERT

Model 835LM Overview PERIMETER ALERT
Model 835LM
The Perimeter Alert uses a Passive Infra-Red (PIR) Motion Sensor to detect movement of people and vehicles, while allowing small
animals to pass through undetected. The Base Station is powered by the AC adapter and the 4 AA batteries supply power in case of a
power outage.
NOTE: The Base Station is intended for indoor use only.

Operation & Features
Batteries: If the AC adapter is not connected, the
AA batteries in the Base Station should last up to one week.
If the Base Station batteries are low, the Base Station will
beep every 30 minutes. The AA batteries in the PIR Motion
Sensor will last up to 2 years depending on use (lithium
batteries are recommended for colder environments). If
the PIR Motion Sensor batteries are low, the Base Station
will beep every 30 minutes until the batteries are replaced.
The PIR Motion Sensor will continue to operate with a
low battery, however the light will not illuminate. For peak
performance, inspect batteries annually and replace as
On/Off Button
Programming Additional PIR Motion Sensors: The Base
Station can learn the code of up to 7 additional PIR Motion
Sensors, responding with unique buzzes. To program
additional PIR Motion Sensors see Step 4.
To order additional PIR Motion Sensors call
On/Off: To turn the Base Station on and off, hold down the
power button until you hear the on/off tone.
Volume: The Base Station is equipped with adjustable
volume controls. The lowest volume setting is the mute
Clear Memory: Press and hold the Learn Button on the Base
Station until 3 beeps are heard.
Assembly & Programming
Attach PIR Motion Sensor box
to mounting plate with large
silver screw. Tighten screw
until PIR Motion Sensor stays
in place when repositioned.
B Within 60 seconds, press the
Learn Button on the inside of
the PIR Motion Sensor. LED
light will illuminate and Base
Station will buzz.
Install 4 AA Alkaline
batteries. (Lithium batteries
recommended for colder
LED light will flash.
Insert battery pack facing away
from circuit board and fasten
cover with the smallest screws
NOTE: Ensure the batteries do
not touch the circuit board and
the antenna and battery wires
are not pinched.
Test PIR Motion Sensor by
waving hand in front of sensor.
LED light should flash and
the Base Station will buzz X

Plug in the Base Station.
Adhere rubber pads to the

A Ensure Base Station and PIR
Motion Sensor are in close
proximity to each other.
Press and release Learn
Button on Base Station.
Buzzer will sound.
AC Adapter Input
Mount PIR Motion Sensor
horizontally on solid surface
a few feet off the ground and
within 1/2 mile of Base Station
(rotate sensor to access screw
holes). Unit should be able to
swivel as needed.
Attach sun/rain shield.
NOTE: Keep PIR Motion
Sensor antenna away from
metal objects. Do not mount
PIR Motion Sensor in direct
sunlight, near moving tree
branches, or in the path of a
sprinkler system.
Vehicle Alert Installation: For cars, the best mounting
position is about 4 feet high, between 10-20 feet back, and
angled to see the back of car after passing the sensor.
10' - 20'
3' - 5'
The PIR Motion Sensor lights up, but the Base Station does
not respond.
The PIR Motion Sensor must be programmed to Base Station
(See Step 4). Ensure Base Station is on and the volume is
turned up.
Base Station beeps every 30 minutes.
The batteries in the Base Station or the PIR Motion Sensor(s)
are low. Replace the 4 AA batteries. Check the PIR Motion
Sensor(s), if the LED illuminates on all of the PIR Motion
Sensors, change the batteries in the Base Station.
PIR Motion Sensor is detecting motion only part of the time.
Ensure the PIR Motion Sensor is set to the High Sensitivity
setting (See Step 2). To detect cars, it is best to mount PIR
Motion Sensor at height of car’s motor and have it between ten
and twenty feet from the road. Swivel sensor as needed.
The Alert is not getting expected transmission range.
Keep both antennas vertical and keep PIR Motion Sensor
antenna away from trees and metal objects. Ensure Base Station
is in clearest possible sight of the PIR Motion Sensor. The less
objects between the devices, the longer the range.
The Alert is giving false alarms.
Check for moving tree branches or insects in sensor window.
PIR Motion Sensor can also be triggered by light shining
directly in sensor window, such as reflected sunlight, or motion
in front of a light source.
It is possible that condensation has built up on the sensor. Wipe
condensation from PIR Motion Sensor with cotton swab. Let it
sit inside for a few hours, open to the air, without the batteries
and it should correct itself.
Check Sensor Switches on PIR Motion Sensor. See Switch
