The RF-501 offers an option to pre-warn possible violators with siren
chirps before triggering the alarm. The alarm will trigger on the third
violation within 15 seconds.
To delete the pre-warning sensor, press the GREEN button again
within
5 seconds after arming. The siren will confirm deletion with a low
chirp.
NOTE: Deleted sensor(s) will return to normal operation upon
disarming the RF-501. Sensor(s) deletion procedure must be
followed
each time the RF-501 is armed if this function is desired. This
operation deletes only the pre-warning sensor of the alarm. For
maximum protection, sensor(s) may be installed on a separate alarm
circuit that will not be affected by the pre-warning deletion operation.
4. DELETING THE ARM/DISARM CHIRP
The arm/disarm chirp signal may be deleted in tw o ways. If permanent
arm/disarm chirp delete is chosen, open the access door on the RF501
main unit and set dip switch #2 to OFF. Consult your local dealer for
details.

AUTOPAGE ALARM ACCESSORIES
AP-4000DX Paging System
Vehicle security paging was originated by AutoPage over 15 years ago.
The "SHADOW" is our latest version providing a full four watts of output
power to signal a handsome belt-clip paging receiver indicating your
RF-501 has been triggered, even if you cannot hear the siren.
RS-31 Perimeter Protection Sensor
The RS-31 utilizes microwave technology that emits a protective field
within the vehicle interior. The adjustable field allows the RF-501 to be
armed and provide maximum protection in convertible vehicles parked
with the top down, and equally good protection in enclosed vehicles.
Any movement within the field will trigger the RF-501.
SIS-3 Glass/Shock/Motion Sensor
Our top selling and extremely reliable electronic glass/shock sensor.
The SIS-3 can be finely adjusted for each installation, from sports cars
to trucks. When properly adjusted, it virtually eliminated false triggers
typically caused by inferior sensors.
MSEN-KIT
The MSEN-KIT includes two pre-wired Micro Resonance Sensors and
a special triggering amplifier. These special sensors are designed to
be mounted within the vehicle door or on the door post near the
latching mechanism that keeps the door closed. When properly
adjusted, they will respond to the frequency caused by metal-to-metal
contact, such as a lock pick, screwdriver, or profession door opening
tools inserted into the door for attempted illegal entry into the vehicle.
the MSEN-KIT sensors are designed to provide limited coverage to
specific areas. They should be used in conjunction with other
AutoPage sensors for maximum protection capabilities.
RK-1 Relay Kit
A pre-wired relay and socket for interfacing power lock systems with
the RF-501, as well as the starter interrupt function. It may also be
used with the AP4000DX paging system to raise and power many
automatic power antennas.
ES6
As an option to the standard single tone siren package, a six tone
siren is available at additional cost.
XT-501
Extra remote transmitter.
SIS-10 Air Movement Sensor
The SIS-10 super low frequency vibration sensor has successfully
integrated an electret electrostatic transducer and low pass filter,
creating a new and cost effective air movement sensor. If installed in
a closed vehicle, any movement of air inside the vehicle which may be
caused by opening a door will trigger the sensor. Applications of the
SIS-10 are limitless. It will be ideal to monitor a vehicle's doors, trunk
or hatch, an RV, a closed cabin on a vessel and so on. The SIS-10
can also replace glass breakage sensors. The advantage of the SIS10 is that a single SIS-10 can cover all the doors, rear hatch, windows
and sun roof e ven if there is no pin switch. Like other AutoPage SIS
sensors, the SIS-10 has an LED and potentiometer for easy sensitivity
adjustment.
