IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The FCC Wants You to Know
IMPORTANT! This scanning radio has been manufactured so that it will not tune to the radio
frequencies assigned by the FCC for cellular telephone usage. The Electronic Communications
Privacy Act of 1986, as amended, makes it a federal crime to intentionally intercept cellular
or cordless telephone transmissions or to market this radio when altered to receive them.
The installation, possession, or use of this scanning radio in a motor vehicle may be
prohibited, regulated, or require a permit in certain states, cities, and/or local jurisdictions.
Your local law enforcement officials should be able to provide you with information regarding
the laws in your community.
Modification Notice
Changes or modifications to this product not expressly approved by Uniden, or operation of
this product in any way other than as detailed by this User’s Guide, could void your authority
to operate this product.
Part 15 Information
This scanner has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a scanning receiver,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This scanner generates,
uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.
There is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
scanner does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be
determined by turning the scanner on and off, you are encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the scanner and the receiver
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions:
This device may not cause harmful interference, and
This device must accept any interference received, including interference that may cause
undesired operation.
General Precautions
Before you use this scanner, please read and observe the following:
Earphone Warning
You can use an optional 32Ω stereo headset or earphone with your scanner. Use of an
incorrect earphone or headset might be potentially hazardous to your hearing. The output of
the phone jack is monaural, but you will hear it in both headphones of a stereo headset.
Set the volume to a comfortable audio level coming from the speaker before plugging in the
earphone or headset. Otherwise, you might experience some discomfort or possible hearing
1
damage if the volume suddenly becomes too loud because of the volume control or squelch
control setting. This might be particularly true of the type of earphone that is placed in the
ear canal.
Liquid Exposure Warning
Uniden does not represent this unit to be waterproof. To reduce the risk of fire or electrical
shock, do not expose this unit to rain or moisture!
Power Disconnection Caution
Important: Always turn the scanner off before disconnecting external power. Some settings
are saved only as the scanner is powering down.
Scanning Legally
Your scanner covers frequencies used by many different groups, including police and fire
departments, ambulance services, government agencies, private companies, amateur radio
services, military operations, pager services, and wireline (telephone and telegraph) service
providers. It is legal to listen to almost every transmission your scanner can receive.
However, there are some transmissions that you should never intentionally listen to. These
include:
Telephone conversations (cellular, cordless, or other private means of telephone signal
transmission)
Pager transmissions
Any scrambled or encrypted transmissions
According to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA), you are subject to fines and
possible imprisonment for intentionally listening to, using, or divulging the contents of such a
conversation unless you have the consent of a party to the conversation (unless such activity
is otherwise illegal). This scanner has been designed to prevent the reception of cellular
telephone transmissions and the decoding of scrambled transmissions. This is done to comply
with the legal requirement that scanners be manufactured so they are not easy to modify to
pick up these transmissions. Do not open your scanner’s case to make any modifications that
could allow it to pick up transmissions that are illegal to monitor. Modifying or tampering with
your scanner’s internal components or using it in a way other than as described in this
manual could invalidate your warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. In some
areas, mobile and/or portable use of this scanner is unlawful or requires a permit. Check the
laws in your area. It is also illegal in many areas (and a bad idea everywhere) to interfere
with the duties of public safety officials by traveling to the scene of an incident without
authorization.

WHAT IS THE HOMEPATROL-1?
Uniden’s HomePatrol-1 is the first digital TrunkTracker IV Communications Receiver that requires no
user programming. Simply turn it on, enter your location, and you will immediately begin hearing
communications in your area. This functionality is made possible by combining the rich radio system
database from RadioReference.com with Uniden’s patented radio system selection methods to correctly
identify and monitor only nearby systems.
With the HomePatrol-1, you can also listen to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
weather channels and monitor weather alerts. Set your HomePatrol-1 to monitor these transmissions
when it is in a standby state or when it is turned on.

information. Become part of the HomePatrol-1 family by getting involved in the discussion forums.
How Does the HomePatrol-1 Work?
What You Do
When you enter your location, HomePatrol-1 searches its databases for channels within a specific
distance from that location. If you enter your zip code, HomePatrol-1 searches within a 10 mile radius of
the center of that zip code. If you enter the city, that range is 20 miles from the center of the city. If you
use the AutoLocate feature, that range increases to 30 miles. If you manually enter your latitude and
3
longitude or connect an accessory GPS receiver, your HomePatrol-1 will select channels that apply to
your precise location.
HomePatrol-1 uses these databases:

Radio System Database – provided by www.radioreference.com, this database contains radio
system information including frequencies, trunked talk groups, and geographic locations for
radio systems across most of North America.

ZIP Code Geographic Database – provides geographical coordinates for every zip code in the US
and every postal code in Canada.

RadioReference SysID Database – contains system ID and geographic location information for
trunked radio systems across North America.

City Location Database – includes the centerpoint of most named cities and counties.
What You Hear in the United States
Your HomePatrol-1 receiver has over 10,000 police, fire, ambulance, business, utility, and other agencies
set for instant access. You can also listen to weather channels and weather alerts, and you can set your
HomePatrol-1 to monitor weather alerts while it is in a standby state.
NOTE: There are some communications that the public is locked out from monitoring. Your
HomePatrol-1 cannot receive agencies that scramble their communications; it also cannot receive
agencies on private proprietary systems.
Because there are so many different kinds of communications going on, you can turn on specific types of
agencies you want to hear (and turn off those you don’t). Tap Menu/Service Types to select these
agencies. Appendix C provides a list of service types and a brief description of them.
What Else Can HomePatrol-1 Do?
Create Favorites Lists
As you find transmissions you like and would like to monitor again, you can save them to a Favorites List.
When you opt to listen to a Favorites List, HomePatrol-1 will monitor only the transmissions on that list.
Avoid Transmissions
You can also select transmissions for HomePatrol-1 to avoid (ignore).
Replay Transmissions
HomePatrol-1’s Replay feature acts as an instant replay of the transmissions you’ve just heard. You can
set how long a period Replay will record for instant playback. This period can range from 30 seconds to
240 seconds (4 minutes). While you can replay that recording immediately and continue replaying it, you
cannot save it for future listening.
Record Transmissions
With HomePatrol-1, you can tap a button and begin recording the transmission you’re listening to.
When you begin recording, HomePatrol-1 adds the Replay recording buffer to the recording.
4
HomePatrol-1 will continue recording until you tap again to stop. These recording sessions are saved
and can be replayed on demand. Rename and delete sessions through the Review Recordings screen,
accessed through Advanced Menu/Replay Options/Review Recordings (tap on the session to bring up an
options screen).
Use GPS Input
HomePatrol-1 works with an accessory GPS receiver to provide the most accurate location setting
possible. You can set HomePatrol-1 to use GPS settings while you are traveling so you always receive the
most accurate transmissions for your location.
A Word About HomePatrol-1 Profiles
When you entered your zip code the first time, you began creating your first HomePatrol-1 profile. A
profile contains HomePatrol-1 settings like your location and associated transmissions from the
database, Favorites Lists and Avoids, etc. You automatically develop a profile as you monitor
transmissions and save some to Favorites Lists, avoid others, and adjust how HomePatrol-1 receives and
plays them.
HomePatrol-1 operates on a single profile at a time, so, if you want to significantly change your current
profile, save it to Sentinel first. The saved profile becomes a snapshot of your HomePatrol-1
configuration at that moment. When you want to restore that specific profile later, write it back to
HomePatrol-1. For example, if you are traveling to another city and you will be creating a profile for that
city, write your current profile to Sentinel. You can restore that profile when you return and all your
settings will be saved.
Refer to HomePatrol-1 Sentinel Software Help files for detailed information about profiles.

HOMEPATROL-1 OPERATIONS
Start-Up Wizard
The first time you turn on your HomePatrol-1, it will take you through a startup wizard to install the
HomePatrol Sentinel software and set up basic scanning criteria. To run the startup wizard again, tap
and hold the Help button.
Running the Startup Wizard
1. Plug the provided USB cable into your computer and into HomePatrol-1’s USB jack. HomePatrol1’s screen turns white during PC connection. When connected to the PC, HomePatrol-1 installs
like an additional drive.
2. Allow the installation to Autorun. If you don’t see an Autorun prompt, open the drive and
navigate to the setup.exe file in the Setup folder. Double click setup.exe to run that program.
3. Sentinel will ask you where you want to install the software. Once the software is installed, click
Close when prompted.
NOTE: When Sentinel installs, it uses the internet to check for firmware and radio data
updates.
4. After installing Sentinel, disconnect HP from the PC. HomePatrol-1 restarts the initialization
process.
Selecting Channels to Monitor

BUILDING FAVORITES LISTS
As you listen to HomePatrol-1, you’ll find that there are certain channels you want to listen to. You can
create groups of related channels that you can have HomePatrol-1 exclusively monitor. For example,
you can create a list entirely of police department dispatchers, emergency operations, or a specific city’s
transmissions. If there is a special event coming up, like a car race, you can create a list just for that
event. You can save a maximum of 256 Favorites Lists.
Once you have Favorites Lists saved on HomePatrol-1, you can copy them to HomePatrol-1 Sentinel on
your PC. If you need to reset your HomePatrol-1, you can restore your Favorites Lists from there.
Creating a Favorites List
There is more than one way to create a new Favorites List:




From Fave on a submenu pop-up. While you are monitoring transmissions, open a submenu
pop-up and tap Fave. This method is useful when you are already monitoring a channel you’d
like to save. If you don’t have Favorites Lists already established, you can create a Favorites List
and save the transmission location to it.
NOTE: The FAVE submenu pop-up displays different screens depending on whether or not you
have Favorites Lists already saved. Both of these procedures are described later in this
section.
Tap Menu/Manage Favorites Lists. This method is useful when you know you want to create a
Favorites List for specific transmissions you know you will be monitoring. You can create the list
and then save transmissions to it as you come across them.
Avoid transmissions you do not want to listen to. Then, create a new Favorites List database
using the unavoided channels through Menu/Manage Favorites Lists; select Use Full Database
for HomePatrol-1 to use all the unavoided channels to create the List (this method is possible,
but not commonly used).
Use the HomePatrol Sentinel software to create a Favorites List (this is usually the easiest way.)
All of these methods will take you to the Create New List keyboard, but through different paths.

HOMEPATROL-1 AND SENTINEL SOFTWARE
HomePatrol-1’s Sentinel software, which you had the opportunity to load to your PC on installation, lets
you manage your HomePatrol-1 profiles, Favorites Lists, databases, and firmware updates.
Manage Profiles
HomePatrol-1 profiles are “snapshots” of your HomePatrol-1 set up. A profile contains all your
configuration settings as well as all of your Favorites Lists, Avoids, and System settings. Sentinel can save
multiple HomePatrol-1 profiles so you can also restore different profiles as you need them. For example,
If you regularly visit a specific location, you can create a profile for that location. You can save it to
Sentinel to use whenever you visit. Refer to HOMEPATROL-1 PROFILES later in this manual or
HomePatrol-1 Sentinel Help files for more information and details on managing profiles.
Manage Favorites Lists
You can create Favorites Lists in Sentinel and then associate them with specific profiles. When those
profiles are written to HomePatrol-1, only those specified Favorites Lists are written. Refer to the
HomePatrol-1 Sentinel Help files for more information and details on managing Favorites Lists.
Manage Databases
The HomePatrol-1 website updates transmission databases every week. You can decide how often you
want to update the databases on your HomePatrol-1 unit. When you update them through Sentinel, it
checks the website for the most current database and copies it to HomePatrol-1. Refer to the
HomePatrol-1 Sentinel Help files for more information and details on managing databases.
Manage Firmware Updates
HomePatrol-1 updates its firmware through Sentinel. In that process, Sentinel connects to the internet
