A Consumer Guide to Product Safety
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
When used in the directed manner, this unit has been designed and manufactured to ensure your personal
safety. However, improper use can result in potential electrical shock or fire hazards. Please read all safety and
operating instructions carefully before installation and use, and keep these instructions handy for future reference.
Take special note of all warnings listed in these instructions and on the unit.
1. Water and Moisture – The unit should not be used near water. For example: near a bathtub, washbowl,
kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming pool or in a wet basement.
2. Ventilation – The unit should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere with its proper
ventilation. For example, it should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug or similar surface that may block
ventilation openings. Also, it should not be placed in a built-in installation, such as a bookcase or cabinet,
that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
3. Heat – The unit should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves or other
appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
4. Power Sources – The unit should be connected to a power supply only of the type described in the
operating instructions or as marked on the appliance.
5. Grounding or Polarization – This product is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a
plug having one blade wider than the other). As a safety feature this plug will fit into the power outlet only
one way. If you are unable to fit the plug into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug still fails to fit,
contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of your polarized
plug by forcing the plug into the outlet.
6. Power Cord Protection – Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely to be walked
on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. It is always best to have a clear area from where the
cord exits the unit to where it is plugged into an AC outlet.
7. Cleaning – The unit should be cleaned only as recommended by the manufacturer. See the Maintenance
section of this manual for cleaning instructions.
4
A Consumer Guide to Product Safety
8. Objects and Liquid Entry – Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids are not spilled
into any openings or vents located on the product.
9. Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer.
10. Lightning and Power Surge Protection – Unplug the unit from the wall outlet and disconnect the
antenna or cable system during a lightning storm or when it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time. This will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
11. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience receptacles as this
can result in a risk of fire or electric shock.
12. Damage Requiring Service – The unit should be serviced by qualified service personnel when:
A. the power supply cord or plug has been damaged.
B. objects have fallen into or liquid has been spilled into the enclosure.
C. the unit has been exposed to rain.
D. the unit has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
E. the unit exhibits a marked change in performance or does not operate normally.
13. Antenna – Do not connect an external antenna to the unit.
14. Periods of Nonuse – If the unit is to be left unused for an extended period of time, such as a month or
longer, the power cord should be unplugged from the unit to prevent damage or corrosion.
15. Servicing – The user should not attempt to service the unit beyond those methods described in the user’s
operating instructions. Service methods not covered in the operating instructions should be referred to
qualified service personnel.
For questions or comments regarding this or other
products, please call our toll-free number: 1-800-888-4491.

to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the materials, please dispose of them properly.
2. Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight, and away from sources
of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, and strong magnetic fields.
3. After installing the backup (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the AC cord into an outlet.
“Sure Alarm” Battery Backup Installation
It is strongly recommended that 3 “AAA” batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below, in order to activate
the “Sure Alarm” Battery Backup. In the event that the power cord is disconnected or a power interruption
occurs, the “Sure Alarm” Battery Backup will maintain clock and alarm settings for the life of the battery, ensuring
that the alarm (buzzer only) will sound at the set time. Note: the backlight will not function while on battery power.
1. Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery compartment door.

making sure that the + and – ends match up with those inside the battery
compartment.
3. Slide the battery compartment door back on, making sure the door locks
into place, and gently turn the unit over.
The display’s Battery Low Indicator will flash when no batteries are installed,
or when the batteries are weak or installed incorrectly.
Battery Compartment
Maintenance
1. Place the unit on a level surface away from direct sunlight or sources of excessive heat.
2. Protect your furniture when placing the unit on natural wood or wood with a lacquered finish. A cloth or other
protective material should be placed between the unit and the furniture.
3. Clean the casing with a soft cloth moistened only with mild soap and water. Stronger cleaning agents, such
as thinner or similar materials, are not recommended as they may damage the surface of the case.
4. If the unit is not to be used for a prolonged period, remove the batteries to prevent possible corrosion. Should
the compartment become corroded or dirty, clean the compartment thoroughly and replace the batteries.
