Can I make a different recording for every
Yes. If you put one in your garage and one
in your backyard, the recording for the
garage transmitter could be something like,
"There's someone in the garage." and the
back yard could say, "There's someone in the
backyard." This is how you would be notified
if someone trespassed into those areas.
Is the Sensor/Transmitter waterproof?
The Sensor/Transmitters can be used indoors
and outside. They are designed to withstand
weather including rain and snow but are not
designed to be submerged in water. When
installed outside the Sensor/Transmitters do
best when in a covered area and not in
How does the Sensor/Transmitter work?
The Sensor/Transmitter is a passive infrared
receiver (PIR). It detects movement by the
change it causes in background temperature
and then transmits a radio signal to the
Receiver/Speaker that movement has been
How far will the Sensor/Transmitter send
a signal to the Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a
signal in an open area up to 1000 feet to
the Receiver/Speaker. Through walls the
Sensor/Transmitters will transmit a signal
to the Receiver/Speaker up to 300 feet.
Will tree branches trigger a false
It is possible for branches to cause a false
trigger. The best location to install the
Sensor/Transmitter in an area where tree
branches and bushes will not be blown by a
wind in the detection zone of the
Will birds or dogs or cats trigger a
The Sensor/Transmitters are designed to
ignore small animals under 40 Lbs. To reduce
the possibility for a false trigger caused
by movement of a small animal it is
recommended that the Sensor/Transmitters be
mounted at a height of 7 1/2 feet above the
ground. The lower the Sensor/Transmitters
are mounted the higher the chance of picking
up a small animal.
How often will the Sensor/Transmitter
send a signal?
The Sensor/Transmitter has two modes for
sensing movement and sending a signal. The
(setup) mode that is set at the factory
identifies all movement and transmits each
detected movement to the Receiver/Speaker.
The battery saver mode will detect movement
every 3 minutes and then transmit to the
Receiver/Speaker. Removing the jumper in the
Sensor/Transmitter will setup this mode.
Will the system work through walls of my
The system is designed to function through
the interior walls of a home and exterior
walls of a home. The Sensor/Transmitters
have difficulty transmitting a signal
through aluminum siding or metal surfaces
and are best located on a window in that
How many Sensor/Transmitters will the
There is no limit to the number of
Sensor/Transmitters that can be installed
with a system. There are 3 voice messages
that are available for the
Sensor/Transmitters to activate.
How long will the Receiver/Speaker work
off the battery?
The Receiver/Speaker is designed to function
as a power back up in the event of a power
outage. The Receiver/Speaker battery will
function for up to 2 hours depending on the
amount of speaker activity.
Can a Sensor/Transmitter be recognized by
more than one Receiver/Speaker?
The Sensor/Transmitter can be set to
activate an unlimited number of
Will the Sensor/Transmitter recognize a
The Sensor/Transmitter is intended to
identify children of about 40 Lbs or larger
when the Sensor/Transmitter is installed at
a height of 7 1/2 feet above the ground. If
it is desired to identify smaller children
then the Sensor/Transmitter will need to be
installed lower to the ground. When animals
are present they may create a false trigger.
Will the Sensor/Transmitter work in the
Yes, the Sensor/Transmitter will work in the
dark or in full light.
How long will the battery last in the
The battery in the Sensor/Transmitter can
last up to 1 year depending on if the
Sensor/Transmitter is set to battery saver
mode. Temperature can also affect the life
of any battery. Operating a battery at cold
temperature will reduce its life.
How large of an area do the
The Sensor/Transmitters are designed to
monitor a 40-foot by 40-foot area when they
are installed at 7 1/2 feet above the ground
and there are no obstructions.
Where can I get additional
Additional Sensor/Transmitters are available
on this web site.
