General Warnings on Remote
Notification and the Comm Link
WARNING: This device is for remote notification only. It
is not a life safety device, and should not be relied upon by
occupants for an immediate warning to fire or other hazards.
WARNING: Loss of electrical power or Internet connection
will render the unit inoperative
WARNING: While the Comm Link and OmniShield branded
products are designed to produce cell phone and Internet
based warning messages, many factors can and will affect
their ability to do so. Things such as a poor internet
connection, poor cell phone reception, cell phones turned off,
cell phones out of battery, sensors placed out of range, power
outages, etc., will prevent proper messaging.
WARNING: This product is intended for use in ordinary
indoor locations of family living units.
WARNING: Radio communication between alarm units
may fail to take place if significant changes to the home have
occurred since installation and testing. Moving large objects
such as a refrigerator or metal cabinet could impede sensor
radio performance.
WARNING: Alarm warning signals may not be heard. A deep
sleeper, hearing-impaired person, young child or someone
impaired by drugs or alcohol may not awaken in response to
an alarm activation. This can occur even when an alarm is
located inside the individual’s bedroom. Be sure emergency
exit drills are practiced that take this possibility into account.
NOTICE: Smoke, CO, Heat Alarms, Water Sensors, Bed
Shakers and Comm Links are not substitutes for an adequate
homeowner’s fire/property insurance policy.
ALARMS AND SENSORS CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL
NEVER SUFFER ANY ILLNESS OR INJURY FROM POTENTIAL
SAFETY HAZARDS IN THE HOME
5
Choosing the Right Internet Connection
Ethernet
With its hardwired connection to the home’s
router, Ethernet provides the most reliable
connection for the Comm Link.
Setting up with Ethernet requires the use of
an Ethernet cord. A 3ft. cord is included with
the Comm Link. A longer cord may be used
if required.
WiFi
WiFi offers the freedom to place the Comm
Link in more convenient locations.
It is best to locate the Comm Link as centrally
within the home as possible. This will reduce
the distance between the Comm Link and
any installed sensors. Shorter distances
produce better radio communication.
Be sure to fully test the entire OmniShield network after
completing installation. It is important that all devices are
able to communicate properly with each other and the
Comm Link to the Internet.
Acceptable Radio Network Spacing
Maximum
Spacing in
Open Area
200’ (70m)
The sensor-to-sensor radio communicates using radio frequencies between
905.2MHz and 913.2MHz. The range of
this radio has been tested to 200 ft (70m)
in open area distance testing. The Comm
Link’s WiFi communicates at 2.4GHz,
which produces a shorter range when
used indoors.
Each sensor will also act as a repeating
station during alarm conditions, so any signal
received by a device will be rebroadcasted.
After final installation, test all alarms
for proper radio inter-connection.
Simply press and release the test
button of an alarm while having a
helper observe the remote alarms.

condition cleared within the last three days.
Home Location and Dealer Info
Enter the street address where the Comm Link
is being installed. Add a “System Name”. (for
example: “Smith Residence” or “Lake House”). All
other information is optional.
Contacts
Contacts are the people the network will a message
if an event occurs. All contacts must have a cell
phone number capable of receiving text messages.
As an option, a contact’s email address may also be
included.
The person acting as the primary contact will be required to
include an email address.
A maximum of eight contacts are allowed.
Each contact will have the option to select the various types
of messages they are to receive. All contacts will receive all
emergency notifications.
If a contact responds to a system generated text message, all
other listed contacts will receive the response. For example: “Sorry
folks...I was just cooking some bacon. All is good”.
General App Note: Selecting the i symbol found throughout
the App will produce an Information Box explaining the feature in

Creating Your OmniShield Network
The Comm Link is a key component in the OmniShield Network.
Even without a Comm Link all sensors and devices on the network
will continue to perform their important tasks, but it is the Comm
Link that allows for messages to be sent to your smart devices.
SHIPPED,
DEACTIVATED
To create the
OmniShield
Network, first set up the Comm Link as
described on Page 7. All sensors must be bound directly to the
Comm Link to appear on the Sensors tab of the phone App.
Follow the step-by-step instructions as they appear in the App.
When you reach the “Add Sensors” page:
Activate your first sensor by moving the slide
switch located on the back side of the unit
in the direction indicated by the arrow.
The slide switch will lock into place when
fully positioned.
The blue WIRELESS light will flash slowly as
sensors are bound to the Comm Link.
Continue activating each new sensor, one at
a time, until all units have been added to the
network. This should include smoke, heat,
CO alarms, bed shakers and water sensors.
The blue WIRELESS light will remain on for
10 minutes after all units are bound, or until
the Comm Link’s button has been pressed.
After each sensor has been added to the
network, use the Edit button to customize
the location name.
Note: See the instruction manual for each
sensor type for additional details.
Your OmniShield network is now fully
bound together and ready for installation
throughout the home!
General Note: The alarm portion of the network is limited to a
total of 18 alarms. Only 12 of them may be smoke alarms, and
the remaining 6 units can be CO, heat alarms, or bedshakers.
Water sensors are not included in this count.

Adding a Sensor to the Network
To add a device to an existing OmniShield Network, perform the
following steps.
Step 1 - Press and hold the button on the
Comm Link. The FIRE icon will flash red and
the horn will sound three times. Continue
holding.
Step 2 - The WARNING icon will begin to
flash yellow. Count the yellow flashes.
Step 3 - Release the button on the 5th flash.
The blue RADIO icon will begin to flash. This
signals that the Comm Link is ready to add
new sensors.
Step 4 - Add the new sensors in the same

Important Fire and Emergency Safety
Information
Plan Your Escape
• Draw a floor plan of your home.
• Show two ways out of each room.
• Discuss escape routes with everyone in your home.
• Agree on an outside meeting place where you will gather after escaping.
Be Prepared
• Familiarize every member of the household with the sound of
the smoke, CO and heat alarms.
• Instruct each person to call 911 from outside the home.
• Teach everyone how to unlock and open all windows.
• Make sure security bars have quick-release devices.
• Keep exits clear and free from furniture and clutter.
Practice!
• Hold home fire/emergency drills at least twice a year.
• Make fire drills realistic by pretending some escape paths are blocked by smoke or fire.
If you live in an apartment building
• Learn and practice your building’s evacuation plan.
• If you hear a fire or CO alarm, react immediately.
• Know the location of all building exits and fire alarm boxes.
• Use the stairs ... never use an elevator during a fire.
• If exits are locked or blocked, report the problem to your
building’s management.
Escape Tips
• Close doors behind you as you escape to slow the spread of fire
and smoke.
• If you have to escape through smoke, crawl on your hands
and knees, keeping your head one to two feet above the floor,
where the air will be clearest.
• Test the doorknob and spaces around the door with the back
of your hand. If the door is warm, try another escape route. If
the door is cool, open it slowly. Close it quickly if smoke pours
through.
• Once you have escaped from a fire, do not go back inside for any reason.
