• Be sure you set the correct SECURITY
LIGHT Code in the Console, see
pages 26 and 35.
• Be sure the light you are trying to
control has its on/off switch in the on
position. Be sure its bulb is good.
• Plug the Module into another outlet
near the Console.
• Check that the indicator on the Keyfob
Remote comes on when you press a
button. Replace batteries and
reregister the remote if necessary.
• Check the dials on the Modules.
• Check that the system is armed.
• Check to see if the alarm trips when
you press TEST inside the Door/
Window Sensor.

no further action is necessary. If not:
• Reregister the sensor/motion detector
(see Setting Up Door/Window Sensors
and Setting Up Motion Detectors.
Replace the Console's batteries. Four AA
alkaline batteries provides approximately
12 hours of backup. Replace batteries at
least once a year.
Reregister your complete system to

remote control. See bottom of page 39.
A neighbor may have a compatible
system. Reinstall the complete system so
that it chooses different RF codes. See
bottom of page 39.
Remove the batteries, press a button for
a few seconds, release, then replace the
batteries. Press and hold the ARM button
on the Keyfob Remote for a few seconds
and then release it. This initializes the
remote and picks a random code that is
used when it is registered with the
Console. Reregister the remote.
