Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Pet Stop® Indoor Pet Fence System. You will
find with proper training, both you and your pet will enjoy the system for years to come.
The RoomWizard® Indoor Transmitter can be used with or without a boundary wire. The
RoomWizard should be used in conjunction with a Pet Stop battery-powered receiver
collar or a compatible pet containment receiver. Ask your Pet Stop dealer for a list of
compatible equipment.
When operated as a wireless transmitter, the signal field radiates up to approximately
seven feet from the unit. When used as a wired unit, the transmitter emits a maximum
signal field of approximately four feet on either side of the boundary wire. The maximum signal field width will vary depending on the configuration of the boundary wire.
The RoomWizard indoor transmitter activates the Pet Stop collar to help train your pet
to stay away from an area, room or piece of furniture. The Pet Stop collar will administer a mild correction whenever your pet enters the protected area.
The Pet Stop® RoomWizard® Indoor Transmitter is designed for indoor use only.
For the best results, please read this manual and all accompanying information in its
entirety. If you have any questions, please contact your local Pet Stop dealer.
All of us at Pet Stop thank you for the opportunity to provide safety and convenience for
both you and your pet. We sincerely appreciate your business.
Pet Stop is proudly designed and manufactured in America.

Troubleshooting

RoomWizard® Indoor Transmitter
Problem: The RoomWizard Range Display is not lit.
1. Check to make sure the RoomWizard has not been turned off. Do this by pressing the “up”
button (button that increases the signal field strength).
2. Check the AC outlet to make certain it is supplying power. We recommend you plug something
else into the outlet to see if the outlet is good.
3. Check that the AC adapter is plugged into the LEFT connector.
Problem: The RoomWizard Range Display is blinking. (Possible cause: overheating)
1. Check to make sure that nothing is obstructing the unit; do not block any ventilation openings
on the RoomWizard.
2. Do not install near any heat sources such as radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other apparatus
that produce heat.
3. Make sure that the RoomWizard is not located in a tight location as in underneath a very low
piece of furniture.
4. Unplug the RoomWizard when unused for long periods of time.
Problem: the RoomWizard is beeping and the Range Display is flashing on and off.
1. Make sure that the boundary wire is plugged correctly into the connector on the right side of the
transmitter.
2. Make certain that the boundary wire has not been damaged. You may have a break in the
boundary wire. Locate the break and repair it or replace the boundary wire.
Receiver
Problem: The Receiver is not detecting the signal from the wire.
1. Make certain that the RoomWizard is turned on and is transmitting a radio signal.
2. Make sure that the receiver battery has been recently replaced and was inserted properly.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class
B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to
provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment 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. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular
installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which
can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is 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 equipment and receiver
– connect equipment to an outlet or a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected
– consult the dealer or an experienced radio/tv technician for help.

Problem: Pet not responding to training pulse
1. Check the fit and snugness of the pet’s receiver collar. Make certain that the soft probes are
making contact with the dog’s skin. In some case, it may be necessary to shave a portion of the
dog’s fur in order for the probes to make proper contact.
2. Make sure that the receiver battery has been recently replaced and was inserted properly.
3. If your receiver uses Comfort Contacts® with rubber tips make sure they have been replaced.
Depending on the pet, these tips may need to be replaced as often as every six months.
Problem: Low battery indicator on the receiver is flashing.
1. When the Low Battery Indicator is flashing it means you need to replace the battery. Refer to
the battery replacement section on Page 9 for specific instructions.
Contact your local Pet Stop dealer if none of the above solutions
resolve the problem.

Training Your Pet
Training your Pet
Your Pet Stop dealer will introduce your dog to his new indoor boundaries by using training steps
similar to those used in outdoor system training. Your dealer will first place training flags in an
area or room that is now off-limits to your dog. For example, if your dog is no longer allowed in
the dining room, flags will be placed at the doorway(s) to deter your dog from entering that room.
If your dog is not allowed up a stairway, flags will be placed at the bottom of the stairs. If your dog
is already trained using the outdoor system, he will quickly recognize and avoid the flags, and not
enter the room.
Your Pet Stop dealer will begin training by placing the receiver collar on your dog. Depending on
your dog’s personality your dealer will begin training using the audible tone or a mild correction.
When your dog respects his new indoor boundaries, usually after a a few days to a week, you can
remove the training flags.
If you find you need to add another room or area as off-limits to your pet, be sure to follow the
training steps recommended by your Pet stop dealer. Be sure to contact your dealer if you have
questions about indoor training.
Precautions
•
DO NOT use this system for guard dogs or vicious animals. If you believe your dog
may pose a threat to others, DO NOT USE THIS SYSTEM.
•
DO NOT use this system as a solid barrier. This product is a deterrent, meant to train
pets to remain within an established boundary. It will not work without proper training.
•
DO NOT permit children to operate the system.
•
DO NOT block ventilation openings or place transmitter in a tight location such as
underneath a very low piece of furniture
•
If you are unsure as to whether or not your dog will be suitable on a Pet Stop System,
please speak with your authorized Pet Stop dealer.
Additionally, your system will not work unless you:
•
Adjust the collar snug enough for the contact probes to make contact with your pet’s
skin, but not so tight that it will cause injury. See Page 10 for collar adjustment.
•
Replace the receiver battery as required. See Page 10 for details.
•
Contact your local Pet Stop dealer immediately if the boundary wire is cut or damaged
in any way, so they can help you fix the break as soon as possible. See Page 5 for
Wire Break Warning System.
a. Are the contact probes making contact with the dog’s skin?
Make sure the collar is tight enough around the dog’s neck.
•
Train your pet properly. See Page 12 for Training Tips.
b. Is your pet’s coat trimmed back to one-half inch in the area where the receiver is positioned?
If your dog has a thick long coat, it may be necessary to trim back his fur so the contact
probes touch the skin. Ask your Pet Stop dealer for help.
We do not recommend leaving your pet unsupervised while on the system.
Your Pet’s Personality
Your pet’s reaction to the training session varies depending on personality and breed.
1.Some pets have a great and immediate respect for the boundary, especially if your dog is already
trained to the outdoor system.
2.On the other hand, some pets may show little or no reaction when experiencing the correction. If
this should occur, check the following:
c. Is the battery inserted correctly in the receiver?
Be sure the battery is inserted positive (+) end up.
If your pet still shows little reaction, contact your Pet Stop dealer for adjustments or
additional training. Remember to communicate any training difficulties to your Pet
Stop dealer so that he or she can help.
If your dog wears the receiver collar both for indoors and outdoor system use, be
sure to check the collar regularly for skin irritation. When you take your dog for walks,
remove the Pet Stop collar.
12
To avoid neck irritation, always remove the receiver collar from your
pet at the end of the day when your pet is inside. Check your pet’s neck
frequently for any irritation.
Caution: Changes or modifications to any component, not expressly approved
by Perimeter Technologies, Inc. could void the user’s authority to operate this
equipment.

The Receivers
Attaching The Receiver
Attaching the UltraElite or UltraMax receiver to
your collar is easy!
Probe Inserts
1.
Place the collar holes over the receiver
inserts. Be sure the receiver case is on the
out side of the collar.
2.
Install the plastic washers with the flat
side toward the probes.
3.
Attach the probes by screwing them
snugly (preferably by hand) into the
receiver inserts.
Plastic Backstrip
Comfort Contacts
Be careful not to over-tighten the probes. Over-tightening can cause damage to
the probes and receiver case.
If you wish to attach the receiver to a collar other than the one provided by your Pet Stop dealer, you
must create two holes for the receiver inserts, washers, and probes. Be sure the holes are correctly
sized to fit properly. After doing so, follow the above steps to attach the receiver to the collar.
Adjusting the Receiver Collar on your Pet.
It is important that the probes sufficiently make contact with the dog’s skin. One finger should fit
between the dog’s neck and a probe. Your Pet Stop dealer will demonstrate proper collar snugness.
Be sure to check the collar every few days for proper snugness. Your dog will not feel a correction if
the collar is too loose, and may escape from the yard. Always remove the receiver collar at the end
of the day when your pet is inside.
Battery Replacement
To replace the battery, remove the battery cover
with any flat-head screwdriver or a coin. Remove
the old battery and discard it. Insert the new
battery with the positive (+) end UP toward the
battery cover. If you are uncertain which side of
the battery is the positive side, look closely at the
flat side of the battery. You will see a plus (+) mark
indicating the positive end.
The receiver collar may
need adjustment due to
changes in your pet’s coat,
weight and age.

Battery Maintenance
Battery maintenance is convenient and easy.
Your Pet Stop dealer can offer you a battery
subscription plan which will make the timing of
battery replacement hassle-free. With this plan, you
will receive a battery in the mail when it is time to
replace it. Ask your Pet Stop dealer for details.
RoomWizard® – Wireless
Your Pet Stop RoomWizard can be set up in your home as either as wireless or wired system,
depending on the needs of you and your pet.
Pet Stop RoomWizard - Wireless Operation
Place the RoomWizard unit in the location you want your pet to avoid. For example, if you do not
want your pet to jump on the sofa, place the unit under the sofa. The RoomWizard can also be
permanently mounted on a wall using the key hole slot on the bottom of the transmitter case.
RoomWizard
Under normal operation, the RoomWizard will display the signal field strength number (such as
“10”) and will make no sounds. This indicates the RoomWizard is operating normally. You can make
adjustments to the signal field range to achieve the correction zone you desire. Pressing the upper
button (“+”) will increase the signal field to a maximum of 32. Pressing the lower button (“-”) will
decrease the signal field to a minimum of 1.
To turn on the RoomWizard unit:
1. Plug the AC adapter into an AC electrical outlet.
2.
Plug the other end of the AC adapter into the LEFT connector on the RoomWizard marked
“Power” as shown in photo below.
3.
The Range display should be lit to indicate the RoomWizard is on. If the range display is not lit,
press the top Range Adjustment button to turn the unit on.
4.
Adjust the signal field range by pushing the upper button (+) to increase the range and the
lower button (–) to decrease the range.
5.
Test the signal field range by using the receiver collar and listening for the beeps.
Remember:
Always remove your pet’s
Pet Stop receiver collar
before making any
adjustments to the
signal field range.

RoomWizard® – Wired
Pet Stop RoomWizard - Wired Operation
To keep your pet out of one or several rooms, it is recommended that boundary wire be laid around
the edges of a room, or installed in the basement ceiling. Ask your Pet Stop dealer about wiring one
or several rooms.
The Wired Mode adapter cord attaches to each end of the boundary wire by twisting them together
and reinforced with electrical tape for insulation. The Wired Mode adapter is then plugged into the
RIGHT side of the RoomWizard unit, marked “LOOP”.
The RoomWizard unit’s AC adapter is plugged into an AC electrical outlet, then the other end of the
AC adapter is plugged into the LEFT connector on the unit marked “POWER”. The Range Display
should be lit to indicate the RoomWizard unit is on. If the Range display is not lit, press the top
Range Adjustment button to turn the RoomWizard unit on.
Your Pet Stop dealer has set the range that is appropriate for your pet. You can adjust the signal field
range by pushing the upper button (+) to increase the range and the lower button (–) to decrease
the range.
If the transmitter detects a break in the boundary wire the signal field Range Display will begin to
blink.
Note: The RoomWizard will not detect a break in the wire if the signal field setting is
set below 6.
Remember: Always remove your pet’s Pet Stop receiver collar before making any
adjustments to the signal field range.
Room Wizard - Wired Operation
The Receivers
Pet Stop® UltraElite Receiver® and UltraMax Receiver®
The Pet Stop receivers provide safety and convenience for both you and your pet. Both the UltraElite
and UltraMax receiver features allow your pet to go anywhere within the boundary you determine,
without worrying about your pet experiencing an unintentional correction due to Radio Frequency
(RF) interference generated by electrical appliances.
To accomplish this, Pet Stop uses a microprocessor (small computer) in the receiver which analyzes
all incoming signals. When a signal is detected, the microprocessor analyzes it in a matter of
milliseconds and determines whether it is the Pet Stop signal or a random RF noise. If the signal
detected is the Pet Stop signal, the receive first emits an audible tone and then administers a
correction to remind your pet of its boundaries. If the signal is not the Pet Stop signal, the receiver
disregards it. This signal processing eliminates false alarms which could confuse your pet and
make training difficult.
Your Pet Stop dealer has set the receiver to the appropriate correction setting for your dog(s).
It is not necessary to change the receiver setting unless, perhaps your dog’s environment and
distractions change from its initial training. Contact your Pet Stop dealer if you have questions about
your dog’s receiver settings.
Flash Alert® Low Battery Light
A dead battery in the receiver is one of the primary reasons a pet might escape the yard.The Pet
Stop Flash Alert Low Battery Light alerts you when the battery is nearly depleted. The low battery
indicator light will flash red for several days before the battery needs to be changed.
Safety Stop® Shut Off
The Pet Stop Safety Stop is a microprocessor-controlled timing circuit which minimizes the period
of time during which your pet can receive a correction. This feature is extremely important if your
pet happens to get caught within the signal field. Unlike other systems which continue to pulse or
correct up to one hour, the Pet Stop SafetyStop will shut off the correction after 20 seconds.
TriScann® Omni-Directional Antenna
The Pet Stop TriScann antenna ensures that the receiver always detects the radio signal, no matter
what position the receiver is in. However when your dog moves or turns, the receiver will always be
ready to remind your dog of the boundary.
To avoid neck irritation, always remove the receiver collar from your pet’s neck
at the end of the day when your pet is inside. Check your pet’s neck frequently
for any irritation.
