Overview: This wireless door/window transmitter, made by Visonic, is designed for use with advanced, high-security alarm systems, such as the Smarthome SecureLinc Wireless Home Security System (item # 72673903W). It can be used to protect doors and windows using a built-in magnetic contact that operates in conjunction with a magnet to detect the opening and closure of a door or window. It is powered by a replaceable, long-life 3V Lithium battery. The transmitter sends a "low battery" message to the receiver to alert you to change the battery.
Auxiliary Input: The transmitter has an auxiliary hard-wired input, programmable as either NC (normally closed) or EOL (end of line), for use with additional sensors, such as pushbuttons, detectors, door contacts, etc. An on-board DIP switch allows you to disable the magnetic-operated reed switch if only the auxiliary input is needed.
PowerCode: When activated, the magnetic contact and the auxiliary input initiate an individual 24-bit PowerCode ID message, which identifies it to the target receiver as a separate transmitter. Each ID code is randomly selected from 16-million possible combinations, and is therefore unique and virtually impossible to accidentally reproduce. In addition, a smart, anti-collision algorithm prevents signal jamming by simultaneous transmission from multiple devices. Periodic transmission of supervision signals is used to confirm system connectivity at all times.
Tamper Switch: The unit has a tamper switch which is activated when the cover is removed. A tamper report is sent every 3 minutes until the tamper switch is restored.
Supervision Message: A periodic supervision message is transmitted automatically. The target receiver is thus informed, at regular intervals, of the unit's active participation in the system.
LED: An LED lights whenever alarm or tamper events are reported. The LED does not light while a supervision message is being transmitted.
- Operating Frequency: 315 MHz
- Power Supply: 3V Lithium battery, CR-2
