Introduction
This is the GE Smart Card Reader Installation Instructions for
models AL-1191 and AL-1193. The smart card reader is a multi-
function, all-purpose proximity card reader suitable for all loca-
tions (including outdoors) that require a short-range reader. You
can connect the reader directly to the Alliance system RS485
databus.
You can configure the reader through the control panel menu
when it is connected to the system databus, through the DGP
menu when it is connected to the local databus, or you can use a
configuration card. Refer to the Smart Card Reader Program-
ming Manual for more information.
The AL-1191 model is shipped with a white removable cover
(there are five other colors available).

Installation Instructions
Installation
You should program the reader and change the default address
(16) before you install the reader. Refer to the Smart Card
Reader Programming Manual for programming details.
You can mount the reader on any flat surface with two #6 (3 to
3.5 mm diameter) panhead screws (Figure 1). We do not recom-
mend using countersunk screws.
You will experience a slightly reduced range if you mount the
reader on a metal surface. If you mount the AL-1191 reader
outdoors, ensure that the blue LED is at the top.
To mount the reader, do the following:
1.
Gently pry the AL-1191 cover sides away from the main
reader body to remove cover and expose the mounting
screws. Do not use excessive force or the reader can be
irreparably damaged.
2.
Mount the reader using the mounting screws.
3.
Gently press the cover over the main body of the AL-1191
reader until it locks into place.
