Introduction

RISCO Group's two-way indoor wireless sounder is designed to extend the signaling capabilities of the Risco Group WisDom and Agility wireless systems, within the protected area. The wireless sounder offers an easy and flexible solution for quick installation. The sounder is powered by its own batteries and communicate wirelessly with the security panel using 868MHz or 433MHz frequency band. Up to 3 wireless sounders can be assigned to a system.

Operational Functions

Alarm / Tamper Indication

Upon an alarm condition, the sounder will be activated for a period of time defined by the system (Bell Time Out parameter).

The maximum time that the sound will be activated is 5 minutes.

Low Battery Indication

Upon a low battery condition a trouble indication is sent to the panel.

There are 2 types of low battery indications:

Ê

Ê

Radio low battery

Speaker low battery

Supervision

Each sounder can be defined to be supervised by the panel. The system generates a local trouble signal identifying the sounder which its signal is not received during a predefined time, followed by a report to the Central Station (if defined).

Pre Alarm Indication

When an entry time starts, the system transmits a pre-alarm signal to the sounder.

If the system is disarmed before the entry delay time expires, a cancellation signal is sent to the sounder.

If the sounder does not receive a canceling signal within the entry delay time, the sounder will be activated.

Sounder Testing

Once placing all batteries in place, the sounder performs a functional self test indicated by a squawk sound. Testing the sounder can also be performed remotely by the system keypad, or, using the remote configuration software.

Wireless Sounder Instructions

Mounting the Sounder

1. Release the mounting bracket captive locking screw (Fig 1).

2. Turn the mounting bracket counterclockwise and separate it from the sounder.

3. Hold the mounting bracket against the wall (direction arrow pointing up) and mark the locations of the mounting holes (Fig. 2).

Drill the desired mounting holes and insert screw anchors (if required).

NOTE:

Do not drill through the mounting bracket.

4. Mount the bracket to the wall using the supplied screws.

5. Insert the supplied batteries into the battery chambers (speaker and radio) paying attention to the polarity (Fig 3).

6. Perform communication set up with the control panel (see Sounder/Receiver

Communication Set up paragraph).

7. Once communication setup is completed, mount the sounder to the mounting bracket by turning the sounder clockwise. Pay attention to the tamper switch.

8. Secure the captive locking screw.

Programming the sounder

Programming the wireless sounder consists of the following 3 steps:

1. Setting communication between the receiver and the sounder

2. Setting sounder parameters

3. Testing the sounder

Step 1: Sounder/Receiver Communication Set up

The sounder must identify itself to the system's receiver by writing its ID into the

System. Perform according to the following steps:

1. Set the receiver to the Write mode.

NOTE:

In the WisDom , as first step, you need to allocate the sounder in the following programming location:

Main engineer menu> 9) Devices > 2)Sounder > 1) Allocation > Select sounder> Choose INWS1

2. Select the sounder's ID.

3. Unpack the supplied batteries

4. Insert two speaker batteries into the batteries chamber (Fig. 3).

5. Insert three Radio batteries into the batteries chamber.

6. After a squawk is heard you have 10 seconds to press on the tamper switch for at least 3 seconds. If the sounder is successfully recognized, the system will sound a confirmation beep and the sounder will initiate a second squawk sound.

7. Repeat the process for other sounders in the system.

Step 2: Setting the Sounder Parameters

Each sounder can be defined with different sets of parameters. The following table describes the list of parameters of the sounder.

NOTE:

For the specific programming location of each parameter refer to the system manuals.

6 Wireless Sounder Instructions

Adjusting the Volume

Defines the sounder sound volume for the following system modes

¾ Exit / Entry: The sound produced during Exit/Entry time (Default: 0)

¾ Alarm: The sound produced during alarm (Default: 9)

¾ Squawk: The sound produced during squawk sounds (Default: 9)

The sound volume range is between 0 (silent) to 5 (maximum volume).

Muting Tamper

This feature disables a tamper alarm from the sounder and it is recommended to be used when replacing sounder's batteries.

NOTES:

1. An ongoing tamper alarm will not be disabled.

2. WisDom: This feature is controlled under the Engineer Menu (Quick key [9][2][5]). Tamper alarm

will be disabled during the current installation programming period.

3. Agility: This feature is controlled under the Grand Master menu. Tamper alarm will be disabled for

20 minutes.

Setting Supervision Time

Specifies how often the system generates a supervision request to the sounder.

If any of the sounders does not respond to the request at least once, during the receiver supervision time, the system will regard the accessory as lost.

NOTE:

The receiver supervision time should be higher than the sounder supervision time in order to eliminate false lost event.

Range: 00-255 minutes

Default: 58 minutes

NOTE:

WisDom: Engineer menu: 1) System > 1) Timers > 9) Accessory supervision time

Agility: Engineer menu: 1) System > 1) Timers > TX supervision

Pre Alarm indication

This wireless sounder incorporates a pre - alarm feature that enhances the security of the system, by producing a local alarm in case of sabotage.

If defined, the system sends a pre-alarm signal to the sounder at the beginning of the entry delay. If the sounder does not receive a cancellation signal from the system at the end of the entry time, the sounder goes into alarm mode.

NOTE:

WisDom (Ver 4.25): Engineer menu Quick key 1) System > 2)Controls > 44) Pre alarm

Agility: Engineer menu [1][2] > Advanced > Sounder Pre alarm

Step 3: Testing the Sounder

Communication Test

The sounder communication test performs a communication test between the sounder receiver and the system.

¾ To perform communication test

1. Access to communication test option

NOTE:

WisDom: Engineer menu > 9) Devices > 2) Sounders > 3) Communication test

Agility: Engineer menu > 2) Testing > 5) Sounder > 1) Communication test

2. The system sends a test signal to the sounders. A number between 00-99 indicates the strength of the communication signal between the system and the sounder.

NOTE:

For successful communication, the strength of the signal should be higher that the sounder receiver noise threshold level.

(WisDom: Engineer menu quick key [9][2][4], Agility: Engineer menu > 2)Testing >1)Main unit > 1)Calibration).

Diagnostics

The Diagnostics menu enables to test parameters reflecting the operation of the sounder:

Ê

Ê

Ê

Speaker batteries voltage: Tests the selected sounder’s speaker batteries voltage

Radio batteries voltage: Tests the selected sounder’s radio's batteries voltage

Sounder version: Displays information regarding the sounder's version

NOTE:

WisDom: User menu: 4) Maintenance > 7) Sounders > 1) Diagnostics

Agility: Engineer menu > 2) Testing> 5) Sounder>2) Battery test > 3)Version

The diagnostic features can be also performed from Upload/Download software, locally or remotely

Replacing Batteries

1. Before opening the sounder it is advised to silence the tamper alarm using the

Tamper Mute option (see the Muting Tamper paragraph on page 7).

2. Unlock the captive screw and remove the sounder from the mounting bracket by turning it counterclockwise.

3. Remove the old batteries from the metal clips and replace with new ones. Pay attention to the polarity.

4. Attach the sounder to the bracket and fasten the cover captive locking screw.

NOTES:

Dispose of old batteries according to your local regulations.

Risk of explosion if battery replaced by an incorrect type.
