This manual covers professional installation of the Honeywell OWA. See the Getting Started with Honeywell OneWireless,
Honeywell OneWireless Planning Guide and Honeywell OWA User's Guides for general information on overall system
implementation, configuration, and management of these devices.
The OWA is classified by the FCC as a device that must be professionally installed.
1.4 Site Survey
It is assumed for the purposes of this document that a site survey has been performed and that the OWA is installed in a
location consistent with the Model Selection Guide selection. Any changes to the location as a result of the actual installation
of the OWAs into the site may require that the TX power setting of the radio board needs to be adjusted from the factory
setting in order to maintain agency approvals. See Sections 11 and 12 for more information.
