Room Valet System Overview
The Room Valet is designed for easy installation
and is rugged enough to take daily abuses
associated with the commercial hospitality
environment.
The Room Valet was specifically design to comply with the ADA guidelines. It is the first fully
integrated alerting system designed specifically to meet the rigors of commercial installations
providing features not found on any other product. The Room Valet meets and exceeds current
A D A requirements for visual alarms and notification devices for hotels, motels, inns, boarding
houses, dormitories, resorts, homeless shelters, halfway houses. As well as group homes,
assisted and independent living centers, retirement homes, and any other similar living facility
or transient lodging.
The Room Valet is a hardwired, microprocessor based, fully supervised alerting system and
its back up power supply assures operating reliability at all times.
The Room Valet can be used to alert persons in private residences, condominiums or apartments.
Basically any place where hearing normal audible notification signals such as the phone, door bell,
alarm clock, smoke alarm, central alarm system, CO detectors, etc. is difficult.
The Room Valet is designed to be reliable, accurate and functional even under adverse conditions.
Its built-in battery back-up system allows continuous operation for several hours in case of a
power outage.
The Room Valets supervision system monitors its circuits, components and wiring, notifying if a
failure is detected.
The Room Valet wou
ld be the primary notification system for non-emergency alerts such as the door, telephone and
wake-up. It would provide secondary notification for life safety devices such as visual smoke
detectors, visual/central alarm systems and CO detectors, providing tactile alerting and additional
visual notification as back up.
The Room Valet was created from years of insight into the human needs of the hard of hearing.
This was combined with the realization that the only available A D A solutions were products
which fell dependably and logistically short of fulfilling its requirements. A product was needed to
meet the performance demands of the commercial marketplace yet be user friendly.

Room Valet Components:
(See figure 1-1)
1 - Room Valet Central Enclosure
The Room Valet Central Panel Enclosure is where the main control circuitry in housed for the System.
Inside the central panel, enclosure is the system: main electronics module, power supply, battery, and any
additional optional electronics.
The enclosure is flush mounted in a wall with a hinged, self-trimming, locking door.
The enclosure is designed to be installed in a closet, as shown in figure 1.1. Behind a door or under a
counter are also good locations.
The location of the central panel enclosure does not necessarily need to be inside the room.
The central panel enclosure should be located within a 150 foot wire run of the designated room, with the
display and other wire runs originating from that location back to the room(s).
Figure 1.1 - Valet Component Layout in a Typical Room
2 - Room Valet Display Panel(s)
The Room Valet Display Panels are the user interface of the system.
The Display Panels attached to the walls on a self-latching back plate mounted to a
standard, double-gang junction box in high visibility areas.
(Figure 1.1 shows typical panel locations for a two-room installation.)
Page 1-3

Revision 2.3 - 20021003
Room Valet Display Panel(s)
(Continued)
Floor space should be left around the panels to allow wheel chair access to the panel(s).
(See Figure 1.1)
At least one panel should be installed in each room.
The System can support up to six (6) display panels.
3 - Door Button
Works similarly to a standard doorbell.
4 - Central Alarm Interface Relay* (Not Part of The Room Valet System)
This isolation relay serves as the demarcation point between the Central Alarm System and
the Valet system.
5 - Central Alarm Signaler * (Not Part of The Room Valet System)
In hearing impaired sleeping areas a 110 to 170 candela strobe, is required depending on its
mounting location.
*(These devices to be installed supervised and maintained by Central Alarm Contractor)
6 - Smoke Detector (Not Part Of The Room Valet System)
An in room Visual Smoke Detector is required.
The Smoke Detector needs an isolated set of Form "C" relay contacts to allow interfacing to
the Room Valet System.
The GENTEX 710/CS or 7109/CS or similar smoke detector with strobe is ideal for use
with the Room Valet and is typically installed as shown in figure 1.1.
If the in-room Smoke Detector is part of and addressable Central Alarm System then an
addressable relay closure must be given to the Room Valet System by the Central Alarm
System when the Smoke Detector is activated.
7 - Phone and Bed Shaker wall plate
The Room Valet uses a bed shaker for tactile alerting.
The bed shaker is about the size of a hockey puck and contains a vibrating mechanism.
When the bed shaker is properly positioned between the mattress and box spring, the whole
bed will vibrate.
The bed shaker cord has a 1/8" two conductor phono type jack which plugs into the wall
plate that is wired to the valet central control box.
For convenience, the wall plate supplied with the Room Valet has the appropriate phono
jack(s) installed along with a standard RJ11 telephone jack.
This plate configuration allows easy installation of both phone and bed shaker jacks near
the bed as shown in figure 1.1, which satisfies most typical room installations.

The display measures 11" High 6" Wide and is approximately 1" Thick.
The Display Panel has six (6) main Icons for indicating alarms. (See figure 1.2)
The display panel also contains a clock that also functions as an alarm clock.
Display Panel Features:
1 - Fire Indicator (RED) Icon is typically used to signal that the in room Smoke detector is activated.
2 - Phone Indicator (Green) Icon illuminates to signal that the telephone is ringing.
3 - System Malfunction (RED) Icon will light when a systems malfunction is detected.
4 - Strobe Window when the valet system is armed for the hearing impaired the strobe flashed for all alarms
5 - Alarm Clock Indicator Icon (GREEN) Signals that the valets on board alarm clock has been activated.
6 - Doorbell indicator (GREEN) signals the door-button has been pushed. For a second door, Icon can be
configured to flash to differentiate between the doors.
7 - Emergency Alert Indicator (RED)
Icon signals that the buildings centralalarm system has activated.
8 - Clock Display Window
9 - User Input Buttons to set the
clock/Alarm and turn the valet alarm
clock on and off.
10 - Arm System button activates the
valet into Hearing-Impaired mode. In
this mode the bed shakers, Strobe, and
Icon will activate together alerting
hearing impaired users. The ARM
mode is indicated by the system on
indicator (11).
11 - System on indicator (GREEN)
Indicates the Valet system is active
and alarms will be signaled by all
available devices including the strobe
and bed shakers. When this light is off
only the ICON will light to signal the
alert.
13 - Alarm Clock On/Off Status

Remote Central Panel Location
The user needs no direct access to the Central Panel Enclosure. Therefore, the central panel enclosure
can be located remote from the area being serviced by the Room Valet System.
A location such as in utility closet, mechanical room, etc. that is not directly accessible from the room
where the HARC Room Valet is being installed may be desired.
Note: This location must however be within a maximum 150-foot wire run.
Installing the Central Panel Enclosure:
Standard Installation Method
The Enclosure has Keyhole slots located on the sides, and back.
To mount the box, attach both sides to wall studs through the screw slots on the top and bottom.
This may require having a stud added to the wall framing.
The required stud spacing to securely mount of the box is 12 1/2" inside to allow it secure mounting.
This would be approximately 14" on Center for typical wood studs. If framing with metal studs reverse
the placement of one stud so the flush (none open) edge of both stud will be facing the central panel
enclosure.
( See Figure 2.6)
Optional Installation Methods
A.) An optional method of flush mounting the central panel enclosure would require the installation of
horizontal bridging between two studs.
The bridging should go across the top and bottom of the enclosure box.
Then screw the box down securely though the slots in the top and bottom.
Note: Mounting in this fashion would increase the difficulty in running wire.
B.) Another option: Surface mounting the enclosure.
Locate and install any necessary wall anchors so they alien with the screw key slots in the back of
the enclosure.
Install the two top mounting screws most of the way into the wall.
Then slide the box over and down on the screws.
Proceed to install the bottom screws.
Check the enclosure box for final square and level and tighten all screws securely.

Wiring:
The Central Panel Enclosure has several knockouts to allow conduit or wire retainer connection.
The knockouts are located across the top, bottom, back and sides.
When roughing in the wire at the main control box leave wires at least 24 inches long.
They will be trimmed as needed when the main electronics are installed.
Note: For the areas to keep wiring away from. (See figure 2.8)
The AC power connects through the bottom of the enclosure to a lower profile Handy-Box
mounted in its lower right corner.
This box is to be trimmed with a standard duplex receptacle and plate, making sure that the
"ground" lug is to the left.
Note: This will allow the power supply to plug in neatly.
Note: No wiring shall be run underneath the electronics, Battery, or Transformer Areas. (See
Figure 2.8.)

Display Panel(s):
Each display panel back plate will screw to a double gang device-plaster ring mounted on a 4 square
“J” box positioned at a height of 56.5” to its center from the finish floor.
This mounting height will put the user control buttons within the ADA 54” side reach
requirement for persons in a wheel chair.
The wiring to this box from the central panel enclosure shall be 4 pair 24 gauge category 5 wires {see
figure 2.2 for wire specifications}.
Cut the wire, leaving it not less then 12 inches from the wall until the final electronics are installed.
Install the back plate after painting, and all wall finishing, is complete.
This is covered in section III.

Bed shaker / Phone Interface:
The bed shaker wall box must be within 4 feet of the bed.
The bed shakers come with an eight-foot cord and will not reach otherwise.
Figure 1.1 shows typical location of a telephone/bed shaker jack next to the bed.
If a telephone jack is near the bed, the device opening can also be used for bed shaker(s).
In this case one plate can be used for both telephone and bed shaker jacks.
(See Section III Figure 3.13.)
If the bed and telephone jacks are not located near each other, a separate box can be used.
In this case at least one pair* is needed to each bed shaker, and one pair must bring the telephone
line into the central enclosure.
✍ Installation Hint: * It is recommended to double up wires on long bed shaker runs using
24AWG Solid. Using the Blue pair for plus and the Orange pair for minus works well. This is
Very important if multiple bed shakers are going to be plugged into one Wall Plate.

The plug in power assembly consists of the transformer, pre-prepped wire harness with noise filter
and circuit board connector. (Complete Assembly Part # HV-PS-01)
This power supply will require that a low profile type HANDY BOX be installed inside the central
panel enclosure at the lower right hand corner of the in wall housing.
(See figure 2.8.)
This handy box will need to be supplied with UNSWITCHED 120 Volt AC.
The handy box must be mounted, flat to the bottom of the enclosure as far to the right as possible,
with the device open facing upward.
Note: This location will allow room for the back up battery to set next to the power supply and
have room between the out and circuit board to allow the transformer to be plugged in and
out. (See figure 3.20.)
This box is to be trimmed with a standard duplex receptacle and plate, making sure that the
"ground" lug is to the left.
Note: This will allow the power supply to plug in neatly.

After the front panel is removed from the back plate, the back plate is ready to attach to its junction
box and wall.
Position the back-plate over the junction box opening so at least two or more of the junction box
device mounting screw holes align with the holes in the back plate. Then temporally fasten the plate to
the box using the #6-32 thread cutting screws.
Make sure the back plate is square and level, and then screw the bottom of the plate to wall through the
hole approximately one inch from the bottom at the left and right corners.
If the finish wall requires the use of hollow wall anchors, mark the location for the anchors, then
remove plate and install the hollow wall anchors.
For other types of walls use alternate appropriate mounting methods. Remount plate and tighten all
screws.
Once the plate is attached to the wall begin connecting the wire to the six pin connector provide on or
with each display panel. (See next section Recommended Display Wire Colors)

Recommended Display Wire Colors:
Display Panel wires (4 pair) are terminated to a 6 pin removable terminal block** on the display side.
(See figure 3.4 and 3.5)
At the central panel enclosure it terminates to a 5 pin removable terminal block** with the green pair
left about 4"-6" longer for a ground lug. (See figure 3.9 and 3.10)
* The 6 pin removable terminal is an assembly of two three pin removable terminals interlocked
together.
** The 5 pin removable terminal is an assembly of a three pin removable terminal and a two pin
removable terminal interlocked together.
Note: 1) Maximum wire length should be no more than 125 feet.
2) Wire colors are for standard 4 pair cable.
The First color is the solid or dominate color and the second listed is the color of
the stripe on the dominate color. Ex: BLUE/WHITE is the predominately blue
wire with a small white stripe.
3) Leave 12 to 16 inches of wire stubbed out at each display location.
Display Panel Side:
A blue six (6) pin connected is included in the box containing each display panel or it may be found
pushed on the pin connector at the back side of the display.
Attach the 6 pin removable terminal block to the display panel side of the wire run(s) that extend out of
the wall through the display panels back plate.
The wire should be cut to a final length of about 12" beyond the pack plate.
Strip outer jacket of multiple pair wire two to three inches; strip each conductor back 3/16” to 1/4”.
Place appropriate wire colors into connector following the pin drawn below. (If wire colors are different
than shown make notes of wire color
substitution/pin-out.)
NOTE: At this point do not connect plug
connector on to the display panel. Continue
prepping all display locations. Proceed to
main panel enclosure and finish wiring
displays and switch legs to the main board.
(See Section “Connections Inside Display
Panel Enclosure:”) Once connections inside

Checking Display Wiring
With all display panels removed from the backplate, power the main electronics board up.
With a voltmeter, check the voltages as shown below.
If all voltages are correct plug the display panel on the connector and hook it on the back plate.
Immediately the display will show a time and a system malfunction.
The system malfunction should be cleared and the display will revert to the correct system time
within 1 minute.
If the voltages do not match with the above connector carefully, test wiring until the fault is found.
Do not connect the display until the correct voltages are present, as damage to the display can result.
Connecting the Display Panel:
Attach the removable terminal block to the display panel by pushing it over the connector pins located
on the back of the display panel's circuit board making sure that the wiring is configured correctly.
(See figure 3.6)
Note: It is recommended to leave panel unplugged until the wiring is tested. (See Page 20)
After attaching the removable terminal block to the display panel circuit board, hook the top of the
display frame over the tabs in the back-plate and snap the bottom over the latch. (See figure 3.7)
✍ Installation Hint: The panel can be left unlatched until the room is finished and tested, then press
the bottom of the display panel to latch it.

Switch Inputs
•
The HARC Valet has up to Eight (8) switch leg inputs.
•
All switch legs should be run using Two (2)- 4 pair 24 Gauge category 5-type wire.
•
Switch legs that involve Life Safety systems must be installed as outlined below by the
licensed and/or approved alarm contractor for the site location.
Telephone Connection
The connection for the Telephone "TIP" and "RING" should be ran to the central panel enclosure
and connect to "Telephone" terminals on the main electronics.
No termination resistor is used for the tip and ring run to the ROOM VALET ring detects circuit.
NOTE: DO NOT TERMINATE THIS SWITCH LEG WITH ANY RESISTOR DAMAGE
WILL BE CAUSED TO THE PHONE LINE OR SYSTEM IF THIS IS DONE.
When the ROOM VALET is not being connected to the tip and ring or detectable ring-side of the
telephone system. But the phone system is providing a “DRY CONTACT” closure only, the
switch leg then should be terminated at the contact end of the switch leg with a 4.7 K ohm resistor.
The wire should be connected to the control panel at switch input position number sic (6).
At least one wire pair, (see figure 2.2) for specification, must be ran to the central panel enclosure.
Additional pairs are suggested in case of wire failures or future system modification or expansion.
Page 3-11
Room Valet

Revision 2.3 - 20021003
Door Alert Button
The connection for the Door Alert Button will require a single gang box be installed. Locate it at
door button height on the latch side of the door, outside of the room.
Run a wire from this box to control panel where it will be terminated at switch input seven (7) or
eight (8).
Either or both can be used if the room has more than one entry door, however the system at this
time can not differentiate “one door from another.
At least one wire pair, (See figure 2.2 for specification), must be ran to the central panel enclosure.
Additional pairs are suggested in case of wire failures or future system modification or expansion.
The Recommended Door button is an Edward’s #620, available from HARC mounted in a single
wall plate with termination resistor across the terminals, pigtailed with 24 gauge wire. It is prepped
to connect to the switch leg wire with “Scotch-Lock” Type ULG Connectors or equivalent.
(See figure 3.14)
The Door Alert Button Assembly (Part # HV-A-DBA-SS) is normally included with the finish or
trim-in electronics package or may be purchase separately.

Revision 2.3 - 20021003
Fire / Smoke
The connection to the in room smoke detector or alarm should be through a Junction box on
which is mounted an approved fire / smoke detector.
This smoke detector/alarm must have a built-in visual strobe alert which meets all codes and
standards and have built-in “Form C” contacts.
(I.E. Gentex Series #7109, available separately from HARC)
The switch legs terminate at the control panel at input switch location: one (1), two (2), three (3)
or four (4).
One or more up to four smoke detectors or alarms may be connected to system however the
system will only show one “FIRE” alert and not be able to indicate which area.
At least one wire pair (See figure 2.2) for specification, must be ran to the central panel
enclosure.
Spare wire pairs are suggested in case of wire failures or future system modification or expansion
The switch leg from the smoke detector will connect to the N/O contacts of its built-in relay. It
will be terminated at that point with a 4.7 K ohm resistor.
House /Central Alarm or EVAC System
The connection to the House or Central Fire Alarm or EVAC System will require a Junction Box
which will house an approved normally open “form C” isolated relay.
This relay’s coil should be connected to and supervised by the central alarm system and must be
installed and maintained by the central alarm contractor.
This relay switch leg will connect to the control panel at switch input number five (5).
At least one wire pair (See figure 2.2) for specification, must be run to the central panel
enclosure,
Spare wire pairs are suggested in case of wire failures or future system modifications or
expansion.
The switch leg servicing the ROOM VALET shall be connected to the N/O contacts of the
isolated relay and be terminated at that point with a 4.7 K ohm resistor. See detail to follow.

Switch Input Functions:
All switch inputs must be terminated with a 4.7K Ohm resistor.
The door bell assembly as it comes from HARC has the resistor in place.
The resistor for the smoke alarm should be placed across the switch legs as close to the relay or “smoke
Detector side of the wire run as possible.
All unused inputs must have this resistor installed at the terminal block (As shown in figure 3.11).
The House Alarm or Emergency-Alert switch leg has had the circuit terminated at the main electronics.
This resistor should be removed from the connector at the main electronics and place across the switch legs
as close to relay interface servicing the Room Valet as possible (As shown in figure 2.11).
Note: ALL used inputs MUST have the resistor across the switch contacts to
provide proper wire fault detection. All unused switch inputs MUST
have the termination resistors installed at the terminal block on the
main board. The resistors need to be relocated to the switch side if the
switch is put into service. The supervision circuit will turn on the
"SYSTEM MALFUNCTION" ICON if a wire fault is found indicating
Broken wire, or other open non-terminated condition.

Smoke Alarm Requirements:
The Room Valet requires a normally open Form "C" relay contact
from the in room smoke alarm system.
The GENTEX 710/CS or 7109/CS meets all requirements for a
hearing impaired room and it has a normally open Form "C" Relay
contact available for the Room Valet.
Other Gentex options are available, consult GENTEX specifications
for details.
Figure 3.15 shows the Gentex 710/CS.
The Gentex 710/CS is powered by 120 V/AC. It typically requires an
UPS circuit to provide protection during power outages.
The Gentex 7109/CS unit contains a 9V battery that keeps the unit
functioning in power loss except the on board strobe light does not
function. It will however provide relay closure to trigger the Room
Valet which will still function using it's own battery.
Figure 3.15
GENTEX 700 Series:
The Gentex series typically mounts
on a "4" square junction box high
in the sleeping area of the room.
(As shown in figure 1.1) The
Gentex 700 series units also have
facilities for chaining "Tandem"
multiple detector locations
allowing multiple areas to be
covered easily. Consult the Gentex
700 series instructions for more
details on these features.
Figure 3.16 shows the Gentex
710cs connections to the Room
Valet. Make connections using
wire nuts and tuck harness inside Jbox, as shown in figure 3.17. It is
important to attach the wires
securely. Wrapping the wire nut
joints with a couple turns of
electrical tape will prevent the nuts
from slipping off when the detector
is inserted and removed for
maintenance through the years.
When installing the detector push

FIRE / ALARM System Termination
All Room Valet inputs require a normally open switch contact terminated with a 4.7K Ohm resistor across
the contacts.
This should be done as part of the alarm-system relay installation.
The pair of wires should be labeled inside the Central Panel Enclosure as to the function / signal source.
When the electronics are installed the lines will be tested for the 4.7 KOhm load.
Figure 3.19 - Fire / House Alarm Relay Detail
✍ Installation Hint: All switch legs are terminated at the switch end with a 4.7 KOhm resistor. Any
4.7K Ohm, 5% tolerance, 1/4 Watt or 1/2 Watt resistor will work.

General Wiring Information
Proper Grounding:
Earth ground must be connected to the "GND" terminal.
This is very important to prevent long term static discharge damage.
If there is a GOOD Ground is connected to the Central Control enclosure, then the "GND" connection is
not necessary to the Main Board Electronics.
It is also recommended to have grounded conduit runs, or ground each Display Panels Wall Box.
This will give the user interface a good ground to help prevent static discharge damage.
Final Connections and Power ON
DO NOT connect either of these until final wire inspections have been made. Plugging these into the main
board will power it up into an operational mode.
1 - Before powering the installation up double-check all wiring.
2 - Unplug and remove all display panels from back plates.
3 - Battery:
Make sure the Red wire goes to the "+" terminal on the battery. It should connect to the "RED" terminal on
the Main Board electronics. The battery sits on the bottom of the central control enclosure.
(As shown in figure 3.20)
4 - AC/1 and AC/2 Connections:
These are from the 12 V/AC Transformer and should go to AC/1 and AC/2. When connected unit power is
supplied.
5 - Test Display Panel Voltages as described on page 15.
6 - Plug Displays in one at a time until all are running properly.
7 - Test Bed Shaker(s) and Phone Ring.
(Remember to arm the impaired features by pressing the ear on the lower right corner)
(When Impaired features are active, a GREEN light appears by the ear)
