Choose Location

Place your control panel in an accessible, central location and away from large appliances, metallic surfaces, and mirrors to reduce interference.

Connect Your Panel

  1. Connect the two red wires behind your panel. If you have a control panel without red wires, skip this step

  2. If you have broadband monitoring, connect the Ethernet Cable from your panel into an open port on your router.

  3. If you have landline monitoring, locate the cord labeled “WALL” that came with your system. Depending on your service provider, this cord will either plug into the phone jack and/or modem.

  4. Plug your control panel into a power outlet.

Align Sensors

  1. First, locate the notches on the side of the sensor and magnet.Align the sensor and magnet by holding them up to the door or window frame, making sure the notches face each other.

  2. Make sure the sensors are no further apart than the width of a pencil.

Test Sensor Connection

  1. First, locate the notches on the side of the sensor and magnet.Align the sensor and magnet by holding them up to the door or window frame, making sure the notches face each other.

  2. Test the connection by separating the sensor from the magnet and listening for the control panel to say "front door." Repeat this process before attaching to your doors or windows.

Mounting your Sensors

  1. Clean the mounting area with the provided alcohol wipes and let it dry before mounting your sensors.

  2. Peel back the adhesive off each sensor. Place the sensor on the door/window and the magnet on the frame, and press down firmly on the mounting area. Hold for approximately 30 seconds.
