5.1 Test the Reception of Wireless Devices
It is very important to test the proposed placement of each wireless device before it is
mounted. Following these steps will test the signal strength between the PC5132-433
and the wireless devices.
You can test all of the devices together (global placement testing) or test each device
individually. To test all the devices together, see ‘Testing All Wireless Devices
Together’ below. To test wireless devices individually, see ‘Testing Individual
Devices’.
After you have enrolled the wireless devices, you must exit and then
re-enter Installer’s Programming at least once before you can perform a
placement test.
Testing All Wireless Devices Together:
1. Temporarily put the WLS904P-433, WLS906-433, WLS907-433, WLS912-433,
WLS914-433 and WLS925L-433 devices in the places you want to mount them.
2. At a system keypad, enter [✱][8][Installer Code].
3. Enable the Global Module Placement test by entering section [804]. Then
enter sub-section [90] and turn on option [8].
4. Press [#] twice.
5. Enter programming section [904], then enter [01].
6. Activate one of the devices being tested until a result is displayed on the
keypad or sounded by the keypad or bell:
WLS904P-433/WLS914-433: To perform a Placement Test on the WLS904P433, remove the detector from the back plate and then replace it. Once the
detector is replaced on the back plate the LED on the detector will flash
rapidly 5 times (4 times for the WLS914-433) to indicate that it has sent a
transmission. The panel will show and/or sound the result of the placement
test on the keypad. To perform a 2nd and 3rd test, repeat this procedure.
Carefully replace the backplate onto the detector, ensuring that “TOP” is
facing upward, or you may damage the tamper switch.
NOTE: When you remove the detector from the backplate (tamper the unit), the detector will also be put into “Detector Walk Test” mode. While in Walk Test mode the
detector will activate the LED when motion is detected. The detector will also send a
signal to the receiver 5 seconds after motion is detected, indicated by 5 rapid flashes
by the LED. The LED will only work in this fashion for 10 motion detections after a
tamper/restore. Note that the panel will ignore these transmission signals with respect to a placement test. The only way in which the panel will acknowledge a placement test is if the backplate has, each time, been removed and restored.
WLS906-433: Remove the detector from its backplate, wait 5 seconds and reattach it, or hold a magnet near the raised line on the outer rim, then remove it.
WLS907-433/WLS925L-433: Open the contact by moving the magnet away
from the unit. The keypad will show/sound the test result. After the first test
result has been generated (about 10 seconds) close the contact to generate
another test result. If the unit is attached to a door or a window, open and
close the door or window to activate the device.

Good
Light 1 On Steady
“Good”
1 Beep/Squawk
Bad
Light 3 On Steady
“Bad”
3 Beeps/Squawks
Activate the device until you get 3 ‘good’ results in a row.
You may mount the WLS devices where results were good.
Devices indicating a bad result must be moved to another location. You may
only have to move the device a few inches to correct a bad result.
Do not mount any device where a “bad” test result was indicated.
7. Go to the next device to be tested and activate it until the test result is
displayed/sounded.
NOTE: Wait until the placement test of one device is shown/sounded before beginning to test the next device.
Continue to test the devices until both the PC5132-433 and the devices are in good
locations. If several wireless devices produce ‘bad’ test results, you may need to
move the PC5132-433 to a better location. (See section 2.2 for tips on finding a
location for the PC5132.)
8. To exit the placement test and return to installer programming, press [#] twice.
Testing Individual WLS904P-433, WLS906-433, WLS907-433,
WLS912-433, WLS914-433 and WLS925L-433 Devices:
1. Temporarily place the WLS904P-433, WLS906-433 or WLS925L-433 where
you want to mount it.
2. At a system keypad, enter [✱][8][Installer Code].
3. Enter programming section [904].
4 Enter the 2-digit zone number for the device to be tested.
5. Activate the device being tested until a result is displayed on the keypad or
sounded by the keypad or bell. (Same as step 5 in the Global Placement Test
section, previous page.)
6. To test another device, press [#] once, then repeat steps 4 - 5. Continue to
test the devices until both the PC5132-433 and the devices are in good
locations.
If several wireless devices produce ‘bad’ test results, you may need to move
the PC5132-433 to a better location. (See section 2.2 for tips on finding a
location for the PC5132.)
7. To exit the placement test and installer programming, press [#] twice.
Testing Individual Wireless Keys:
You cannot use the individual device test described above to test WLS909-433/
WLS919-433 wireless keys. To ensure that the PC5132-433 receiver is receiving
transmissions from these devices, use the function keys on the WLS909-433/
WLS919-433 at several different points in the installation.
11
5.2 Mount the PC5132-433 and Wireless Devices
When you have tested reception of the PC5132-433 with all the wireless devices (see
section 5.1) and you have a good mounting location, mount the PC5132:
1. Pull the Keybus wires through the hole at the bottom of the cabinet.
2. Mount the cabinet securely to the wall.
Mount the Devices
If you have conducted the placement test described in section 5.1 and got 3 ‘good’
results in a row for each device, you can mount the wireless devices. See the
Installation Sheet for each device for mounting instructions.
Now that your PC5132-433 and wireless devices are mounted and working properly,
read section 6 for information on potential wireless trouble conditions, RF jamming
signals, and battery replacement.

6.1 Trouble Conditions
The control panel always watches for possible trouble conditions. If a trouble
condition occurs, the keypad “Trouble” light will turn on and the keypad will beep.
Press [✱][2] to display the trouble conditions.
The following trouble conditions apply to the PC5132-433 and/or any enrolled devices.
General System Tamper - This trouble is generated when the PC5132-433
detects an RF Jamming condition.
General System Supervisory - This trouble will be generated if the panel loses
communication with any module connected to the Keybus. The event buffer will
log a detailed description of the event.
Device Low Battery - This trouble is generated when a wireless device exhibits a
low battery condition. Press [7] one, two, or three times to view which devices
are experiencing battery failure. An LED keypad will indicate battery failure
using zone lights 1 to 8.
Zone Tamper - This trouble is generated when an enrolled wireless device is
removed from its mounting location.
Zone Fault - Each wireless zone will send a supervisory signal every 64 minutes. If
the receiver does not receive a signal within the time programmed for the
Wireless Supervisory Window, it will generate a zone fault.
6.2 Jamming Signal Detection
The PC5132-433 receiver detects jamming signals that can prevent the receiver from
properly receiving transmissions from enrolled devices. See section 4.4 “Jamming
Signal Detection” for information on jamming signal detection programming.
NOTE: For UL Listed installations, the RF Jam feature must be enabled - Section
[804], subsection [90], Option [7] OFF.
6.3 Wireless Zone Low Battery Transmission
Within any transmission, the device will indicate the status of the battery. If a battery
is low, the system will indicate a Device Low Battery trouble.
The system will delay reporting the event to the central station for the number of days
programmed for Zone Low Battery Transmission Delay in section [370]. This will
prevent unnecessary reporting of the event if the user has been instructed on how
to replace batteries.
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Devices
1. Remove the cover of the device from its back plate. This creates a tamper
condition on the zone.
2. Refer to the battery installation instructions on the installation sheet of each
component. Be sure to note the proper orientation of the batteries as you install
them.
3. When the fresh batteries are in place, re-attach the cover to the back plate. The
tamper is restored and the zone sends a battery trouble restoral signal to the
PC5132. The battery trouble is now clear and the device should function normally.
NOTE: When batteries in one device need to be replaced, the batteries in all devices
may need to be replaced at the same time.

1. When I enter the 2-digit zone number when adding a wireless
device, the keypad gives me a long beep.
You cannot enter ESNs unless a PC5132-433 wireless receiver is connected to the
Keybus. See section 2 for instructions on setting up and wiring the PC5132-433
module.
2. I have entered the ESN for the device but when I violate the
device, the zone does not show open on the keypad.
Check the following:
• Ensure the ESN has been entered correctly
• Ensure that the zone is enabled for the partition (if partition programming is
used).
• Ensure that the wireless zone is not assigned to a zone used by PC5108
modules, an on-board zone, or a keypad zone.
• Ensure that the zone is programmed for something other than “Null
Operation”, and that the wireless zone attribute is turned on.
3. When I try a module placement test I get no result or ‘bad’
results.
Check the following (see sections 5.1 and 5.2 for more information on testing
devices):
• Verify that you are testing the correct zone.
• Verify that the correct ESN was entered when the device was enrolled.
• Verify that the device is in range of the PC5132. Try testing the device in the
same room as the receiver.
• Confirm that the PC5132-433 is properly connected to the Keybus (see
section 2 for PC5132-433 set up and wiring instructions).
• Check that you are testing the zone correctly (see sections 5.1 and 5.2 for
testing instructions).
• Check that the batteries are working and installed correctly.
• Look for large metal objects that may be preventing the signal from reaching
the PC5132.
The device must be located where consistent ‘good’ results are obtained. If several
devices show ‘bad’ results, move the receiver. See section 2.2 for tips on choosing
a mounting location for the PC5132.
4. The LED on the motion detector does not turn on when I walk in
front of the unit.
The LED is for walk test purposes only. See your Wireless PIR Instruction Sheet for
walk test instructions.

Guidelines for Locating Smoke Detectors
A
PS
PE
CE
TN
I
DO
IN
X
9
A
Experience has shown that all hostile fires in family living units generate smoke to a greater or lesser
extent. Experiments using typical fires in family living units indicate that detectable quantities of smoke
precede detectable levels of heat in most cases. In existing homes, NFPA Standard 72 requires that a
smoke detector be installed outside each sleeping area and on each additional story of the family unit.
On smooth ceilings, detectors may be spaced 9.1m (30 feet) apart as a guide. Other spacing may be
required depending on ceiling height, air movement, the presence of joists, uninsulated ceilings, etc.
Consult National Fire Alarm Code NFPA 72, CAN/ULS-S553-M86 or other appropriate national standards
for installation recommendations.
Do not locate smoke detectors at the top of peaked or gabled ceilings; the dead air space in these
locations may prevent the unit from detecting smoke.
Avoid areas with turbulent air flow, such as near doors, fans or windows. Rapid air movement around the
detector may prevent smoke from entering the unit.
Do not locate detectors in areas of high humidity.
Do not locate detectors in areas where the temperature rises above 38oC (100oF) or falls below 5oC (41oF).
Smoke detectors should always be installed in accordance with NFPA 72, the National Fire Alarm Code.
Smoke detectors should always be located in accordance with:
• Paragraph 2-2.1.1.1 of NFPA 72:“Smoke detectors shall be installed outside of each separate
sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms and on each additional story of the
family living unit, including basements and excluding crawl spaces and unfinished attics. In new
construction, a smoke detector also shall be installed in each sleeping room.”
• Paragraph 2-2.1.1.2 of NFPA 72:“Split level arrangement. Smoke detectors are required where
shown. Smoke detectors are optional where a door is not provided between living room and
recreation room.”
The Smoke Detector is designed to use Eveready Energizer E91 Alkaline Batteries. Do
not use other brands of batteries with the Smoke Detector. Using brands other than the
Eveready Energizer will void UL approval, and may affect the system’s operation.

WARNING
Please Read Carefully
Note to Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact
with system users, it is your responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this system.
System Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible.
There are circumstances, however, involving fire, burglary, or other
types of emergencies where it may not provide protection. Any alarm
system of any type may be compromised deliberately or may fail to
operate as expected for a variety of reasons. Some but not all of these
reasons may be:
■ Inadequate Installation
A security system must be installed properly in order to provide adequate protection. Every installation should be evaluated by a security
professional to ensure that all access points and areas are covered.
Locks and latches on windows and doors must be secure and operate
as intended. Windows, doors, walls, ceilings and other building materials must be of sufficient strength and construction to provide the
level of protection expected. A reevaluation must be done during and
after any construction activity. An evaluation by the fire and/or police
department is highly recommended if this service is available.
■ Criminal Knowledge
This system contains security features which were known to be effective at the time of manufacture. It is possible for persons with criminal
intent to develop techniques which reduce the effectiveness of these
features. It is important that a security system be reviewed periodically
to ensure that its features remain effective and that it be updated or
replaced if it is found that it does not provide the protection expected.
■ Access by Intruders
Intruders may enter through an unprotected access point, circumvent
a sensing device, evade detection by moving through an area of insufficient coverage, disconnect a warning device, or interfere with or
prevent the proper operation of the system.
■ Power Failure
Control units, intrusion detectors, smoke detectors and many other
security devices require an adequate power supply for proper operation. If a device operates from batteries, it is possible for the batteries
to fail. Even if the batteries have not failed, they must be charged, in
good condition and installed correctly. If a device operates only by AC
power, any interruption, however brief, will render that device inoperative while it does not have power. Power interruptions of any length
are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations which may damage
electronic equipment such as a security system. After a power interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to
ensure that the system operates as intended.
■ Failure of Replaceable Batteries
This system’s wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several years of battery life under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a function of the device environment, usage and type. Ambient conditions such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or
large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life.
While each transmitting device has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to be replaced, this monitor may fail to
operate as expected. Regular testing and maintenance will keep the
system in good operating condition.
■ Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could
include metal objects placed on or near the radio path or deliberate jamming or other inadvertent radio signal interference.
■ System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due to permanent or temporary physical disability, inability to reach
the device in time, or unfamiliarity with the correct operation. It is
important that all system users be trained in the correct operation of
the alarm system and that they know how to respond when the system
indicates an alarm.
■ Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors that are a part of this system may not properly alert
occupants of a fire for a number of reasons, some of which follow. The
smoke detectors may have been improperly installed or positioned.
Smoke may not be able to reach the smoke detectors, such as when the
fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors.
Smoke detectors may not detect smoke from fires on another level of
the residence or building.
Every fire is different in the amount of smoke produced and the
rate of burning. Smoke detectors cannot sense all types of fires
equally well. Smoke detectors may not provide timely warning
of fires caused by carelessness or safety hazards such as smoking
in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing
with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to avoid injury or death.
■ Motion Detectors
Motion detectors can only detect motion within the designated areas as shown in their respective installation instructions. They cannot discriminate between intruders and intended occupants. Motion detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They have
multiple beams of detection and motion can only be detected in
unobstructed areas covered by these beams. They cannot detect
motion which occurs behind walls, ceilings, floor, closed doors,
glass partitions, glass doors or windows. Any type of tampering
whether intentional or unintentional such as masking, painting, or
spraying of any material on the lenses, mirrors, windows or any
other part of the detection system will impair its proper operation.
Passive infrared motion detectors operate by sensing changes in
temperature. However their effectiveness can be reduced when the
ambient temperature rises near or above body temperature or if
there are intentional or unintentional sources of heat in or near the
detection area. Some of these heat sources could be heaters, radiators, stoves, barbeques, fireplaces, sunlight, steam vents, lighting
and so on.
■ Warning Devices
Warning devices such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not
warn people or waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door. If warning devices are located on a different
level of the residence or premise, then it is less likely that the
occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible warning devices
may be interfered with by other noise sources such as stereos,
radios, televisions, air conditioners or other appliances, or passing traffic. Audible warning devices, however loud, may not be
heard by a hearing-impaired person.
■ Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of
service or busy for certain periods of time. Also an intruder may cut
the telephone line or defeat its operation by more sophisticated means
which may be difficult to detect.
■ Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the occupants will not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to respond to the warnings in a timely
manner. If the system is monitored, the response may not occur in
time to protect the occupants or their belongings.
■ Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible, the system may fail to function as intended due
to the failure of a component.
■ Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating
as intended can be found by regular testing and maintenance. The
complete system should be tested weekly and immediately after a
break-in, an attempted break-in, a fire, a storm, an earthquake, an
accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or outside the
premises. The testing should include all sensing devices, keypads,
consoles, alarm indicating devices and any other operational devices that are part of the system.
■ Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute
for property or life insurance. An alarm system also is not a substitute for property owners, renters, or other occupants to act prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects of an emergency situation.
