Set-Up and Operating Instructions for PK9000 kit
Barking Dog Alarm (SD20A) and Key Chain Remote (KR19A)
Follow these steps to quickly get your RoboDog system working. There is a more detailed explanation later, so for now you don't need
to concern yourself with any of the switch or dial settings on any of the components.
Remove the battery cover on the back of RoboDog and install 9 C cell alkaline batteries (observe polarity). Replace the battery cover and
plug the AC power cord into any convenient AC outlet near a window or outside door where it will easily be heard by someone
approaching your home. Note: batteries are for back up only, in case the AC power fails.
Note: The DR10A key chain remote shown on the gift box has been replaced with a NEW version, Model KR19A.
To test the system
Wait about 30 seconds after power up before testing the unit. Make sure the slide switch on the back of RoboDog is set to RUN (to the
Press the top left (1-ON) button on the KR19A key chain remote. RoboDog starts barking. Adjust the volume control on the back to a
level that can be heard from outside your home. If you installed any (optional) X10 Light Control Modules, five seconds after barking
starts RoboDog will turn on any X10 Modules which are set to A1. The barking will stop approximately 30 seconds later, or press the
top right (1-OFF) button on the KR19A remote to tell RoboDog to stop barking.
If you installed any optional X10 light control modules, you can turn on any module set to A2 from the 2-ON (bottom left) button on the
KR19A key chain remote. (Modules set to A1 will turn on when RoboDog starts barking).
That's it! To learn more about installing additional accessories or changing any of the default settings, read on:
Optional Remote Controls
You can use several types of X10 Remote Controls to activate RoboDog. These Remotes fall into two three categories: Home
Automation (HA) Wireless Remotes, HA plug-in controllers, and Security Wireless Remotes.
HA wireless remotes: such as the KR19A (included ) or the optional RT504/HR12A, or any X10 RF Wall Switch (RW684/RW694/
RW724, SS13A/SS15A) do not need to be installed. The default setting for RoboDog is A1 so you activate RoboDog from these remotes
by pressing the 1-ON button. Pressing the 1-OFF button while RoboDog is barking tells it to stop.
HA plug-in controllers: ANY X10 controller such as the MC460 Mini Controller, SC503 Maxi Controller, MT522/MT10A Timer, and
CM11A/CK11A Computer Interface, etc. Can control RoboDog. The default Housecode and Unit Code for the SD20A is A1 so A1-ON
tells RoboDog to bark, and A1-OFF tells it to stop barking.
Security Remotes: (KF574, KR10A, and SH624) need to be installed: Move the slide switch on the back of RoboDog to INSTALL (to
the right). Make sure the Housecode dial on the Remote Control (if it has one) matches the letter you set on RoboDog. Press ARM or
DISARM on the Remote Control. RoboDog will bark to acknowledge that the Remote Control is installed. Set the slide switch back to
RUN (to the left). You can install up to five Remote Controls. RoboDog also works with X10 security systems so it will bark when the
You can now use the SECURITY LIGHT ON and SECURITY LIGHT OFF buttons on the Security Remote Control to activate
RoboDog just like the 1-ON and 1-OFF buttons on HA Remotes (see above).
To change RoboDog's default setting of A1 so you can activate RoboDog with a different code: Move the slide switch on the back of
RoboDog to INSTALL (to the right). Make sure the Housecode dial on the Remote Control matches the letter you set on the back of
RoboDog. Press any button on the Remote Control. Set the slide switch back to RUN (to the left).
For example if you pressed button number 5 on the Remote Control, RoboDog will now be activated by 5-ON and silenced by 5-OFF,
and it will turn on X10 modules set to number 5, five seconds after it is tripped.
Motion Detector Model DM10A (sold separately)
You can purchase an outdoor battery operated Motion Detector that will tell RoboDog to start barking whenever someone approaches your
home. This motion detector can also turn lights on at dusk and turn them off again at dawn.
To set up an (optional) DM10A Motion Detector
Remove the screw from the front cover on the Motion Detector and remove the cover. Unclip the Motion Detector from the back plate.
Remove the 2 screws from the battery compartment cover. Insert 4 AA alkaline batteries (observe polarity). Replace the battery cover.
Attach the back plate to an exterior wall in a location where the Motion Detector will see any intruder who approaches your home. Clip the
Motion Detector onto the back plate. Refit the cover. Adjust the swivel up and down for best coverage. Wait for approximately 60 seconds
after installing the batteries to let the sensing circuitry settle before testing the unit.
