Detecting the Different Alert Sounds
This transmitter detects loud sounds and will alert you to the source of that sound.
When a sound is detected from the HA360SSSC it will send a signal to
the HomeAware™ base unit and all HomeAware™ remote receivers, also the
red LED light will flash on the front of the unit.
If this transmitter detects a loud sound from a smoke detector that
meets the T3 standard used for SMOKE DETECTORS, “SMOKE” will scroll on
the display of the HomeAware™ Main Unit.
If the transmitter detects a loud sound from a CARBON MONOXIDE (CO)
DETECTOR that meets the T4 standard, “CO” will scroll on the displayed
of the HomeAware™ Main Unit.
For All Other Sounds
If a loud sound is detected that does NOT match the T3 or T4
standard, then “ALERT” will scroll on the HomeAware™ Main unit in a
loud, repeating pattern.
You can control the sensitivity level for the "ALERT" detection using
the switch on the back of the unit. There are three levels to choose
from: The HI setting is the most sensitive setting and will alert you
to more sounds. Moving this switch to MED makes it less sensitive and
will alert you to less sound. The LO setting is the least sensitive. If
you’re not picking up the sound you need to be alerted to, simply move
the sensitivity switch to a higher setting. If you have set this setting
to HI and you are still not picking up the sound, try moving the
transmitter closer to the source sound.
