4.4 Wireless Communication Indicator
When wireless communication is turned on, the LCD displays the wireless link status in the upper left corner:
If the MeshGuard finds and joins a wireless network, an antenna icon is shown in the display. If no link or a weak
link is established, no antenna icon is shown. Press [Y/+] to search for a network. (See "Join Mesh Network" on
A flashing antenna means the MeshGuard is in Router Mode (RTR), and the radio is always on.
The MeshGuard can operate as a standard (STD) or a router-mode (RTR) device. In STD mode, the MeshGuard
transmits data to the host at a set interval (the default is 30 seconds) or anytime an alarm occurs. In RTR mode, the
MeshGuard receives data in real time, and it can also work as a router as needed to relay data from STD devices
back to the host.
Note: Operating the MeshGuard in RTR mode reduces battery life.
The interval can be changed in Programming Mode. See page 13 for details.
In addition, there is a Detection Mode for standard operation, Programming Mode for making changes to values
(such as the High Alarm, etc.), Diagnostic Mode (for servicing and checking the sensor, etc.), and Diagnostic
Programming Mode, which is for selecting between STD & RTR modes, etc.
