2. SET UP CODE CONNECTORS
1. CODE CONNECTORS
In order for the sensor to communicate with the receiver properly, the
receiver's code must match with sensor's code. Code connectors 1 to 6
can be found by opening the back cover of the receiver. User is required
to set these code connectors randomly and the code settings on the
sensor and receiver must be the same. Each position of the code
connector can be set to "+", "-" or "0" positions. Refer to the diagram
below to set the code connectors properly. If the connector is placed on
the top and middle posts, that column is set on "+". If the connector is
placed on the middle and bottom posts, that column is set on "-". If the
connector is removed completely, (not placed on any posts), it is set to
"0". (see diagram for examples of how to set a column to the three
Please refer to the user's instructions of your Household Alert
set up the code connectors for your sensor.
Note: If you experience interference from a nearby system, which could
accidentally trigger your system, please change the code settings on the
sensor and receiver. The code setting on the sensor and receiver should
still match after changing the code setting.
2. ZONE CONNECTORS
Each receiver can work with up to 4 different sensors (to represent 4
different zones on the receiver). Please refer to the user's instructions
of the sensor to set the zone . If the sensor is set to zone 1, the receiver
zone 1 signal will correspond to this sensor.

3. POWER UP THE HOUSEHOLD ALERT
After setting up all the code connectors,
the receiver is ready to be powered up.
Plug in the adapter to the receiver, the
green LED will start flashing indicating the
receiver unit is powered up but no
sensor is detected.
Activate each Household Alert
this will program the sensor to the
After the sensor is installed in place, and receiver is powered up, you

may test the operation of both units. If the activated sensor is pro-
grammed to zone 1, zone 1 LED should flash and the buzzer will emit a
single beep continuously. When the sensor is back to standby condition
(i.e. closed door), both the red LED and buzzer will be off, the green LED
will glow steadily.
If the activated sensor is programmed to zone 4, zone 4 red LED will
flash, and the receiver will emit a continuous "4 beeps", i.e. "beep beep
beep beep" pause "beep beep beep beep" pause ......etc.
If you have more than one sensor, the operation will be similar. If 2
sensors are triggered at the same time, both red LED representing 2 zones
will flash together, and the buzzer will sound for 2 zones, i.e. if zone 1 and
zone 4 are activated, the buzzer will sound: "beep' pause, "beep beep
beep beep", pause, "beep", pause, "beep beep beep beep" etc.
By the number of beeps emitted by the receiver, user can identify which
zone is triggered.
You can select the buzzer volume by
switching the volume switch to "HI" or
The buzzer can be disabled by switching
to the "OFF" position.
When a sensor is triggered for a long period of time, you may stop the
buzzer by pressing the mute button. When another signal comes again, you
can disable the buzzer for all currently activated sensors by pressing
the mute button. The receiver will beep again if it receives another signal.
For instance, if you know the sensor will be
on for a while, you may want to disable the
buzzer for this sensor. Then you can press
the "Mute" button after it starts to sound. If
any other sensor is triggered, the receiver
will sound again.
