3. INSTALLATION
3.1 DIP Switches Setup
Remove the 2 detector's bottom covers (see Figure 3. steps 1-5) to gain
access to the DIP switches. Set the DIP switches according to Table 1:

It is recommended to perform the first batteries insertion on a desk.
Upon battery insertion, the LED will flash for 60 seconds and then the
detector will enter into 15 minutes walk-test mode.
instructed to initiate transmission from the detector, activate the
tamper switch, i.e. open the detector bottom cover (see Fig. 3, steps
1 - 3) and then close it.
3.4 Installation
A. Bracket installation (see figure 4) – firmly fix the bracket on a
stable wall or pillar. The orientation of the fixed bracket should be
as parallel as possible to the surveyed ground surface.
B. Adjust detector's horizontal and vertical angles (see Fig. 5),
according to the surveyed ground surface. The vertical angle
indicator position for various installation height and coverage
distance combinations is detailed in Table 2 (the information refers
to a relatively flat surveyed area. however, in any case the correct
installation should be verified by walk-test).
C. Fasten the detector to the bracket (see Fig. 4 step 4).

3.5 Test
Enroll the detectors into the alarm system's memory as described in
the alarm system installer guide – ENROLLING section. When
A. Set the detector in Walk-Test mode, as follows:
Open the detector bottom cover (see Fig. 3, steps 1 - 3) and then press
and release the tamper switch. The LED will flash for 60 seconds and
then the detector will enter into 15 minutes walk-test mode.

3.3 Enrolling
Note: The detector automatically enters into 15 minutes walk-test
mode after battery installation or Tamper switch recovery.
B. Adjust the detector in the horizontal plane to cover the required
protected area.
C. Walk into the detectors field of view. Adjust the vertical adjustment
to receive the maximum number of detections when crossing the
entire 90° pattern. Verify that each time your motion is detected
the LED blinks after you cross one Quad PIR and the LED will
then light steadily for 2 seconds as you cross the next adjacent
Quad PIR. The LED will light according to the manner of walk. For
example, walking rapidly across the detector's entire field of view
will cause the LED to light constantly.
The LED blink, described above, is operative only in Walk-Test mode.
Upon each full detection, (LED lights steadily for 2 seconds) the
control panel receives the alarm. If required, perform the detector's
horizontal / vertical adjustments (see section 3.4 and Figure 5).
Important! Instruct the user to perform walk test at least once a
week, to verify proper operation of the detector.
D. Place a piece of cardboard on the detector’s front side, to
deliberately mask the optical window. After 2 minutes, the LED
should flash (see Table 3 below) and the alarm control panel
should receive the masking alarm.
E. Remove the masking from the detector’s front side. The LED
should extinguish or flash after about 30 sec (see Table 3).
