CAUTION
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK
DO NOT OPEN
CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT REMOVE COVER
OR BACK OF UNIT. NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE. REFER SERVICING
TO QUALIFIED SERVICE PERSONNEL.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRIC SHOCK, DO NOT EXPOSE
THIS APPLIANCE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.
The lightning flash with arrowhead in an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the
user of the presence of uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s enclosure
that may be of sufficient magnitude to constitute a risk of electric shock.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is intended to alert the user of
the presence of important operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in the
literature accompanying the appliance.
The symbols above are located at the bottom of the cabinet.
CAUTION: To prevent electric shock, do not use this polarized plug with an extension
cord receptacle or other outlets unless the blades can be fully inserted to prevent
blade exposure.
ATTENTION: Pour prévenir les chocs électriques ne pas utiliser cette fiche polarisée
avec un prolongateur. Une prise de courant, ou une autre sortie de courant sauf si
les lames peuvent étre insérées à fond sans en laisser aucune partie à decouvert.
This device complies with part 15 of the Federal Communications Commission
Rules. Operation is subject to the condition that this device does not cause
harmful interference.
A Consumer Guide to Product Safety
When used in the directed manner, this unit has been designed and manufactured to ensure your
personal safety. However, improper use can result in potential electrical shock or fire hazards.
Please read all safety and operating instructions carefully before installation and use, and keep
these instructions handy for future reference. Take special note of all warnings listed in these
instructions and on the unit.
1. Water and Moisture – The unit should not be used near water. For example: near a bathtub,
washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, swimming pool or in a wet basement.
2. Ventilation – The unit should be situated so that its location or position does not interfere
with its proper ventilation. For example, it should not be situated on a bed, sofa, rug or similar
surface that may block ventilation openings. Also, it should not be placed in a built-in installation,
such as a bookcase or cabinet, that may impede the flow of air through the ventilation openings.
3. Heat – The unit should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat registers,
stoves or other appliances (including amplifiers) that produce heat.
4. Power Sources – The unit should be connected to a power supply only of the type described
in the operating instructions or as marked on the appliance itself.
5. Grounding or Polarization – This product is equipped with a polarized alternating-current
line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). As a safety feature this plug will fit
into the power outlet only one way. If you are unable to fit the plug into the outlet, try reversing
the plug. If the plug still fails to fit, contact your electrician to replace your obsolete outlet.
Do not defeat the safety purpose of your polarized plug by forcing the plug into the outlet.
6. Power-Cord Protection – Power supply cords should be routed so that they are not likely
to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against them. It is always best to have
a clear area from where the cord exits the unit to where it is plugged into an AC outlet.
7. Cleaning – The unit should be cleaned only as recommended. See the Maintenance section
of this manual for cleaning instructions.
8. Objects and Liquid Entry – Care should be taken so that objects do not fall and liquids
are not spilled into any openings or vents located on the product.
9. Attachments – Do not use attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer.
10. Lightning and Power Surge Protection – Unplug the unit from the wall outlet during
a lightning storm or when it is left unattended and unused for long periods of time. This
will prevent damage to the product due to lightning and power-line surges.
11. Overloading – Do not overload wall outlets, extension cords, or integral convenience
receptacles as this can result in fire or electric shock.
12. Damage Requiring Service – The unit should be serviced by qualified service personnel
when:
A. the power supply cord or plug has been damaged.
B. objects have fallen into or liquid has been spilled into the enclosure.
C. the unit has been exposed to rain.
D. the unit has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.
E. the unit exhibits a marked change in performance or does not operate normally.
13. Antenna – Do not connect an external antenna to the unit.
14. Periods of Nonuse – If the unit is to be left unused for an extended period of time, such
as a month or longer, the power cord should be unplugged from the unit to prevent damage
or corrosion.
15. Servicing – The user should not attempt to service the unit beyond those methods described
in the user’s operating instructions. Service methods not covered in the operating instructions
should be referred to qualified service personnel.
For questions or comments regarding this or other products,
please call our toll-free number: 1-800-888-4491.

Installation and Maintenance
Installation
1. Remove unit and all packing materials from the carton. You should save packing
materials in case unit needs to be returned for service. If you do not wish to save the
materials, please dispose of them properly.
2. Place the unit on a stable, level surface, close to an AC outlet, out of direct sunlight,
and away from sources of dust, dirt, heat, water, moisture, vibration, or magnetic fields.
3. After installing the batteries (see below) and reading the Maintenance notes, plug the
AC cord into an outlet.
“Sure Alarm” Battery Backup Installation
It is strongly recommended that 2 “AA” batteries be installed into the unit, as directed below,
in order to activate this product’s “Sure Alarm” Battery Backup feature. (The model should
come with two batteries already installed.) In the event that the AC power cord is disconnected
or a power failure or other interruption occurs, the “Sure Alarm” Battery Backup will maintain
clock and alarm settings for the life of the battery, ensuring that the alarm (buzzer only) will
sound at the set time. During any interruptions the time and alarm settings will be saved
and automatically restored when AC power is again active.
1. Gently turn the unit over and remove the battery
compartment door.
2. Install 2 "AA" batteries (alkaline is recommended for
longer life), while making sure that the + and – ends
match up with those inside the battery compartment.
3. Slide the battery compartment door back on, making
sure the door locks into place, and gently return the
unit to its upright position.
Battery Compartment
Maintenance
1. Place the unit on a level surface away from direct sunlight or sources of excessive heat.
2. Protect your furniture when placing the unit on natural wood or wood with a lacquered
finish. A cloth or other protective material should be placed between the unit and the
furniture.
3. Clean the casing with a soft cloth moistened only with mild soap and water. Stronger
cleaning agents, such as thinner or similar materials are not recommended, as they may
damage the surface of the case.
4. If the unit is not to be used for a prolonged period, such as a month or longer, remove
the batteries to prevent possible corrosion. Should the battery compartment become
corroded or dirty, clean the compartment thoroughly and replace the batteries.
