Security Siren/Strobe Light
Your Radio Shack Security Siren/Strobe Light is designed
to connect to your existing security system. If the security
system is triggered, the siren’s eye-catching dual strobe
light flashes and a powerful 115 dB siren sounds to attract
attention to your home.
Follow these steps to install the siren.
The siren is easy to install indoors or outdoors (in areas
protected from rain and snow, such as under an eave or
on a porch), and its compact, sturdy high-impact polycarbonate housing protects it from the elements.
INSTALLATION
Before installing your Security Siren/Strobe Light, check
that your alarm system’s siren output is capable of supplying the 600 mA required by the siren and strobe light.
Caution: Your alarm could be damaged or fail to function
correctly if its siren output is overloaded.
1. Using the siren’s case as a template, mark the locations of the two screw holes.
2. Drill two 3/16-inch holes in the marked locations.
Select a location where:
• The siren is audible and the strobe is visible from outside your home
• The siren is high enough (6 to 10 feet) to be out of
reach, and is not directly exposed to precipitation or
temperature extremes, such as on a covered porch or
under an eave
• You can properly route the positive and negative wires
from your control center to this location (your local
Radio Shack store carries the necessary wire for routing from your control center to the siren )
Caution: Be sure you can drill holes in the wall at the
mounting location without striking electrical wires or water
pipes.
3. Drill another hole 3/16-inch in diameter, about 1/2 inch to
the right of the lower screw hole, to allow you to route
the siren’s black and red wires into the wall or eave.
4. Route the positive and negative wires from your control
center through the hole you drilled in Step 3 so they
extend to the siren's mounting location.
5. Use a wire connector (such as Radio Shack Cat. No.
64-3057, not supplied) to connect the siren's black
(negative) wire to your alarm system's negative wire.
6. Use another wire connector to connect the siren's red
(positive) wire to your alarm system's positive wire.
7. Once the wires are connected, gently push them back
into the hole you drilled in Step 3.
8. Position the siren so ↑UP on the back of its case is
upright.
9. Insert the two supplied stainless steel screws into the
holes you drilled in Step 2. Tighten the screws.
