Congratulations! You are now the owner of The Clapper.
The Clapper is a sound activated on and off switch for appliances.
The Clapper can operate either one or two appliances by clapping
two times to operate the first appliance and three times to operate
the second appliance.
The Clapper can also serve as a limited function security device.
While in the AWAY mode, almost any noise will turn on the
connected appliance(s) to discourage potential intruders. The
AWAY mode is also convenient for temporarily turning on a light
when entering a dark room such as a garage or basement. No
need to clap, any noise will turn on the lights!
For QUICK INSTRUCTIONS on operating your Clapper,
please refer to the yellow Quick Tips card. The following are
more detailed instructions on how to properly use your Clapper.
FEATURES:
This model is equipped with three special features: Clap
Detection Lights, Auto Sound Sensitivity and the Away Mode.

HOW TO OPERATE AN APPLIANCE WITH 2 CLAPS:
1. Set the three position switch on the side of the unit to the
HIGH position.
2. Plug an appliance into the top receptacle of The Clapper.
This is the receptacle next to the “II.”
3. Plug the Clapper into the wall socket.
4. Manually turn the appliance on.
5. You can now turn your appliance on or off by clapping.
You don’t have to clap very hard! The clapping sequence is
more important than how loudly you clap.
CLAP (pause) CLAP (pause) (pause) (pause)
where each pause is approximately 1/2 second long. The three
pauses after the second clap are very important since The
Clapper must determine that you are not going to clap a third
time. If you did clap a third time, the appliance connected to
the II clap receptacle would not activate.

3. Plug Clapper into the wall socket.
4. Manually turn the appliance on.
5. You can now turn your appliance on or off by clapping.
You don’t have to clap very hard. The clapping sequence is
more important than how loudly you clap:
CLAP (pause) CLAP (pause) CLAP (pause)
where each pause is approximately 1/2 second long. The last
pause after the third clap is very important since The Clapper
must determine if you are not going to clap a forth time. If you
did clap a fourth time, the appliance would not activate.

CLAP DETECTION LIGHTS The
three Red lights on the face of the
Clapper will help you determine the
proper way to clap your appliances
on or off. Each clap detection light
will glow when a proper clap (or
similar sound) is detected.
Claps that are too soft will not
be detected. Claps that are too fast or
too slow will be rejected as noise and
as a result the appliance will not
activate. When the Clapper detects the first clap (or similar
sound) the first light will glow. The second light will glow if a
second clap is detected about _ second after the first clap
occurs. If the Clapper does not detect a third clap, it will have
activated the appliance attached to the “II Clap socket.” If a third
clap is detected, then the third light will glow and the appliance
connected to the “III Clap Socket” will activate.

AUTO SOUND SENSITIVITY: If room noise is detected or if the
2 clap or 3 clap sequences are not proper, the Clapper will reject
the sounds as noise. It indicates that it has rejected the noise by
turning the LEFT and RIGHT clap detection lights on and
automatically reduces the sensitivity of the Clap detection. This
feature of automatically reducing the clap detection sensitivity
helps to reduce background noises from turning on the
appliances. The LEFT and RIGHT lights will remain on until the
background noise is not detected. You can still clap while the
lights are on, but because of the background noise you will need
to clap louder. When the lights go off the sensitivity of the Clapper
Clap detection is at its greatest.
You may notice the lights glowing occasionally even if you
have not clapped. This is not unusual as The Clapper has detected
sounds that are similar to a clap. Your appliances should not
activate as it would require a second or third sound similar to a
clap within the proper time allowed.
By observing the clap detection lights you can become
familiar with the types of claps (or similar sounds) that will
activate your appliances attached to The Clapper.

MANUAL SOUND SENSITIVITY
You can also manually adjust your Clapper
to respond to soft or loud claps, as well as
adjust for the noise level in your room.
Placing the three position switch on
the side to the Clapper to the HIGH
position puts the Clapper in the high
sensitivity mode. This is helpful if your
claps are soft or if The Clapper is far away.
Your appliance, however, may occasionally turn on or off unexpectedly as the
Clapper may detect other noises similar to
your claps.
Sliding the switch to LOW will put the
Clapper into the low sensitivity mode. This is helpful if there is a lot
of external noise in the room that may falsely activate your
appliances. By adjusting the three position mode switch to the high
or low sensitivity, you will be able to activate your appliances easily
and, with less false activation due to external noises. Sliding the
switch all the way down to the AWAY position will put the Clapper
in the AWAY mode (See below).
For use in very noisy environments the Clapper has a third sensitivity level.
To activate this sensitivity level:
1. Put the HIGH- AWAY slide switch into the Away position.
2. Slide the switch from AWAY to HIGH back to AWAY 3 times.
3. All 3 red lights will now be on. They will remain on for about 10 seconds
and then turn off. Now the Clapper is in the very low sensitivity mode.
4. To return to regular operations just move the slide switch out of
the Away position.
