SYSTEM SETUP
To set up your system, follow the steps below. After
you complete steps 1 through 5, your system's Base
Unit will automatically call the Monitoring Center to
guide you through the rest of the set up.
Step 1
Select Base Unit Location
If possible, select a central location in your home for
the Base Unit. This location should be in the area
where you spend most of your time. The location
should also enable an optimal signal reception range
of 150 ft. for pendants and smoke detectors.
The Base Unit can be placed on a table, desk, or
counter. It also can be mounted on a wall.
Make sure that the location you have selected is near
an electrical outlet and a phone jack.
Note: Certain remote areas of your residence may lie
outside the reception range of the base unit, resulting
in the unit not being able to receive transmissions
directly. In this case, a Repeater (MCX-600) can be
used to increase the base unit reception range.
Contact a Visonic representative for further details.
Step 2
Rotate the Antenna on the Base Unit

This verbal message consists of two parts:
Detector Name; and Signal Strength.
MAINTAINING YOUR SYSTEM
When a Pendant's Battery is
Low
When a pendant transmitter's button is pressed and
its battery is low, the pendant transmitter flashes
rapidly several times per second and the red light on
the Base Unit flashes continuously until the
pendant's battery is replaced. The display (AMBER
CLASSIC only) shows LOW BATTERY and the
pendant transmitter's name. Your system informs
the Monitoring Center.
Please contact your Visonic sales representative
for information on battery replacement.
When a Smoke
Battery is Low
Detector's
When a smoke detector's battery voltage is low, the
smoke detector beeps every 35 seconds to alert you
and will continue to beep until the detector's battery
is replaced. The Base Unit's display (AMBER
CLASSIC only) shows LOW BATTERY and the
smoke detector's name. Your system informs the
Monitoring Center.
The smoke detector's batteries should last at least
one year. To replace the batteries, refer to the
instructions provided with the smoke detector.
D-301436
• Detector Name – the Base Unit will announce
the detector type, for example, pendant, fall
detector, smoke detector, and the detector's
zone number.
• Signal Strength – 3 beeps indicate "strong"
signal strength; 2 beeps indicate "good" signal
strength; 1 beep indicates "poor" signal strength;
no beeps indicate that the Base Unit has failed to
measure the signal strength for that transmission.
Pendant transmitter Test
Regular manual testing of your pendant(s) is an
optional feature. If your installer has enabled
pendant tests, then at the scheduled time, the unit
will announce and display (AMBER CLASSIC only)

APPENDIX: HOME FIRE ESCAPE PLANNING
The onset of a fire can often spread rapidly throughout your home, leaving you with little time to escape safely.
Getting out of the house depends, largely, on advance warning from smoke detectors together with an advance
planning strategy – namely, a home fire escape plan familiar to all members of your family and which has previously
been put into practice. Perform the following steps:
• Make preparations with members of your family to conduct an evacuation plan.
• Draw a floor plan of your home, displaying two possible exit areas of each room, including windows. Don’t
forget to mark the location of every installed smoke detector.
• Test all smoke detectors periodically (this must be performed in a qualified testing laboratory), to ensure
their serviceability. Replace batteries as required.
• Make sure that everyone understands the escape plan and is able to recognize the sound emitted from the
smoke alarm. Verify that the escape routes are clear and that doors and windows can be opened easily.
• If windows or doors in your home have security bars, make sure that the bars have quick-release
mechanisms on the inside, which, in the event of an emergency, can be opened immediately. Quick release
mechanisms do not compromise your security, but increase the likelihood of safely escaping a home fire.
• Practice the escape plan at least twice a year. It is important that all members of the family participate,
especially children and grandparents. Allow children to master the fire escape planning procedure before
holding a fire drill at night while they are asleep. The objective here is to perform a fire drill, and not to frighten
the children, so informing the children of the fire drill before they go to bed can be as effective as a surprise drill.
If children or others do not awaken promptly to the sound of the smoke alarm, or if there are infants or family
members with mobility disabilities, make sure that someone is assigned to assist them in the fire drill and in the
event of a real-life emergency.
• Agree on an outside meeting place where everyone can meet once safely out of the house premises.
Remember to get out of the house first, and then to call for help. Never go back inside the house until
authorized by the fire department.
• Ensure that all members of the family memorize the emergency phone number of the fire department. This
will allow a member of the household to call for help from a cellular phone or from a neighbor’s home.
• Be fully prepared for a real fire: when a smoke alarm sounds, get out of the house immediately and do not
return to the house until authorized to do so by the fire department!
• If you live in an apartment building, make sure that you are familiar with the building evacuation plan. In the
event of a fire, use the stairs, never the elevator.
Inform guests or visitors to your home about your family’s fire escape plan. When visiting other homes, ask the
occupants about their escape plan, if they have one. If they do not, point out the importance of such a plan and offer
to help them prepare one. This is particularly important when children attend “sleepovers” at friends' homes.
Warning
Owners Instructions Notice: Smoke detectors shall not be removed by anyone except by occupants.

GENERAL RF DISCLAIMER
Due to the varying range of wireless systems, Visonic and its partners are not held liable if the system does not
receive or process the RF transmitted communications signals as specified. Radio Waves pass through wood and
plastic with very little attenuation (loss of signal strength). The same radio waves pass through concrete, earth and
living matter with greater loss of signal strength and reflect off of metal. To better ensure the reception, initial and
regular range testing procedures must be followed. This device complies with part 15 of the FCC rules.
CUSTOMER PREMISES EQUIPMENT AND WIRING
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a telephone line. Excessive RENs on a
telephone line may result in the devices not ringing in response to an incoming call. In most but not all areas, the sum of
RENs should not exceed five. To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to a line, as determined by the
total RENs, contact the local telephone company. The REN of an alarm system is part of the product identifier that has the
format US:VSOAL00BAMBERNA.

(12) months from the date of shipment by the Manufacturer.
This Warranty is absolutely conditional upon the Product having been properly installed, maintained and operated
under conditions of normal use in accordance with the Manufacturers recommended installation and operation
instructions. Products which have become defective for any other reason, according to the Manufacturers
discretion, such as improper installation, failure to follow recommended installation and operational instructions,
neglect, willful damage, misuse or vandalism, accidental damage, alteration or tampering, or repair by anyone other
than the manufacturer, are not covered by this Warranty.
The Manufacturer does not represent that this Product may not be compromised and/or circumvented or that the
Product will prevent any death and/or personal injury and/or damage to property resulting from burglary, robbery,
fire or otherwise, or that the Product will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection. The Product,
properly installed and maintained, only reduces the risk of such events without warning and it is not a guarantee or
insurance that such events will not occur.
THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND EXPRESSLY IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, OBLIGATIONS
OR LIABILITIES, WHETHER WRITTEN, ORAL, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING ANY WARRANTY OF
MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OTHERWISE. IN NO CASE SHALL
THE MANUFACTURER BE LIABLE TO ANYONE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES
FOR BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER WARRANTIES WHATSOEVER, AS AFORESAID.
THE MANUFACTURER SHALL IN NO EVENT BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR FOR LOSS, DAMAGE, OR EXPENSE, INCLUDING LOSS OF
USE, PROFITS, REVENUE, OR GOODWILL, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY ARISING FROM PURCHASER’S
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PRODUCT, OR FOR LOSS OR DESTRUCTION OF OTHER PROPERTY OR
FROM ANY OTHER CAUSE, EVEN IF MANUFACTURER HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGE.
THE MANUFACTURER SHALL HAVE NO LIABILITY FOR ANY DEATH, PERSONAL AND/OR BODILY
INJURY AND/OR DAMAGE TO PROPERTY OR OTHER LOSS WHETHER DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL,
CONSEQUENTIAL OR OTHERWISE, BASED ON A CLAIM THAT THE PRODUCT FAILED TO FUNCTION.
However, if the Manufacturer is held liable, whether directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage arising under this

and shall be the complete and exclusive remedy against the Manufacturer.
When accepting the delivery of the Product, the Purchaser agrees to the said conditions of sale and warranty and
he recognizes having been informed of.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so these
limitations may not apply under certain circumstances.
The Manufacturer shall be under no liability whatsoever arising out of the corruption and/or malfunctioning of any
telecommunication or electronic equipment or any programs.
The Manufacturers obligations under this Warranty are limited solely to repair and/or replace at the Manufacturer’s
discretion any Product or part thereof that may prove defective. Any repair and/or replacement shall not extend the
original Warranty period. The Manufacturer shall not be responsible for dismantling and/or reinstallation costs. To
exercise this Warranty the Product must be returned to the Manufacturer freight pre-paid and insured. All freight
and insurance costs are the responsibility of the Purchaser and are not included in this Warranty.
This warranty shall not be modified, varied or extended, and the Manufacturer does not authorize any person to act
on its behalf in the modification, variation or extension of this warranty. This warranty shall apply to the Product
only. All products, accessories or attachments of others used in conjunction with the Product, including batteries,
shall be covered solely by their own warranty, if any. The Manufacturer shall not be liable for any damage or loss
whatsoever, whether directly, indirectly, incidentally, consequentially or otherwise, caused by the malfunction of the
Product due to products, accessories, or attachments of others, including batteries, used in conjunction with the
Products. This Warranty is exclusive to the original Purchaser and is not assignable.
This Warranty is in addition to and does not affect your legal rights. Any provision in this warranty which is contrary
to the Law in the state or country were the Product is supplied shall not apply.

Product and its whole system at least once a week and to take all necessary precautions for his/her safety and the
