AC50 App Video Camera

Please use the app "OMGuard HD". In case you still use "OMGuard", please change to "OMGuard HD".
Please check if the SSID and password have been entered correctly. Also check  which WiFi standards are supported by your router / which standards are set in the WLAN settings of your router. Please consider the following:

  • In your router settings, standards B+G must be set. If only the Wireless-N-Standard is set, you have to change to „mixed mode“ (the denomination can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer). This means that not only the Wireless-N-Standard but also B+G need to be selected (i.e. B+G+N). As the AC50 does only support B+G, it should then be able to connect to WiFi.
  • Moreover, one of the channels 1-9 must be set; please be careful with auto settings of your WLAN router - they might lead to connectivity issues.

Yes. Please proceed as follows:

  • Tap „operation“ and then „settings“ to enter the system information
  • To access the settings, tap the „Advanced“ field. Enter your Admin password (default password 123456) and confirm with „OK“.
  • Tap „Video Setting“ and select the  „better image“ (higher resolution) under „Video Quality“>> see manual
  • Note: The transmission rate of the pictures depends on the quality of the WLAN connection between camera and router as well as between router and smartphone.

Please make sure that you have inserted a microSD card. Please also make sure that you have selected „high“(for higher sensitivity of the motion detection) in the Sensitivity Setting. In case „off“ is selected, there will be no automatic recording (see manual chapter 9 and 12).
Please make sure that you have downloaded the current version of the app.
The camera housing itself is weather-proof (IP66). However, humidity might enter if the rubber strap remains open when installing the SD card and at the same time there is a high air humidity. If condensed water has developed, the camera needs to be operated with opened rubber strap for about 1 hour. Afterwards, the rubber strap can be closed again. To prevent condensed water formation, please make sure the camera is always supplied with electricity when installed outside.
It may occur that the infrared filter is stuck, i.e. it is not drawn back at night time. This means that the picture remains dark although the IR-LEDs light up. Normally, this problem can be solved by carefully knocking on the housing or pulling out the power plug.

CA300 Compact Alarm System

If you have connected the batteries and the wires, have armed the unit and tried to activate the alarm without success, please check the following:

  • Check that the spring on the tamper switch on the back of the control unit is depressed. If this is not depressed the unit will not alarm.
  • The unit is possibly not yet armed because you are still in the detection area. The unit allows you minimum 30 seconds to leave the room / the detection area. If during this time a movement is detected the exit delay of 30 seconds starts again. A detection during the exit delay is signalled by a peep sound and a flash of the red LED. When the green LED goes out the system is fully armed.
  • Check that you have waited for the exit delay (min. 30 seconds) and the entry delay (8 seconds after detection). 
  • Check by moving across the detection area of the PIR movement detector, do not move directly towards the PIR movement detector.

  • Check that the batteries are still good.
  • Check that the spring of the tamper switch on the back of the control unit is depressed.

Arm the control unit - the green LED illuminates to signal the exit delay period. Every detected movement will be signalled by a flash of the red LED and a peep sound. When you have walked around to check the detection area then you can disarm the system. When no movement is detected during a period of 30 seconds, then the system is fully armed. If this happens you should quickly disarm the system.
The reason could be:

  • The person or object is not moving enough or too slowly.
  • The temperature of the person or object is too close to the ambient temperature. 
  • The movement must be across the detection area. Movements directly towards the PIR movement detector are not detected as quickly.

The PIR movement detector reacts to the movement of an anything which is warmer (or colder) than its surroundings. Possible causes of false alarms are for example:

  • Movement of animals or pets
  • A radiator, heater, air conditioner, fan, coffee maker, fax machine or similar switching on or off.
  • Strong sunlight shining in through a window
  • Electric lights turning on or off

Remove any potential disturbing factors or change the location of the PIR movement detector.

Under standard conditions (around 20°C) the detector can cover an area of approx. 90° to a distance of up to 6m. It is recommended that the PIR movement detector be mounted in a corner of the room such that the expected movement is across the detection area. The maximum range can vary with high or low temperatures and humidity. Test the detection area, holding the PIR movement detector in the proposed location, before you start with the installation.
The external siren and the siren in the control unit sound for up to 60 seconds. You can interrupt the siren by disarming the system. If the system is not disarmed the siren will stop automatically after 60 seconds. The system remains armed: If further movement is detected the alarm will be repeated.

  • Whenever the batteries are removed the code (as well as other programming) will revert to the original factory settings.
  • Try using the factory set code of "11". If this works, then you can reprogram your own code (refer the user manual).

Of course you are free to use the factory set code (11). However, we strongly recommend using a different code for security reasons.
Under normal use alkaline batteries will last over one year. If the batteries in the control unit need to be changed, this will be indicated by a peep sound and a short flash of the red LED every 20 seconds. If you are not regularly in the protected building we recommend that you change the batteries once a year. Always change the batteries in the external siren and the control unit at the same time.
The control unit and the PIR movement detector are designed for use indoors (or inside smaller buildings such as garden sheds and garages). The external siren can be mounted outdoors, it should however be protected from direct rainfall (mount it beneath a roof overhang for example).

  • The external siren and the control panel have become disconnected.
  • There is no power in the control panel. Maybe the batteries in the control panel are run down or have been removed.

The batteries are used up. Replace the batteries in the control unit and in the external siren with new ones. After the battery change remember to reset your code.

  • Do the batteries make good electrical contact? > remove them, check that they are clean and reinsert them.
  • Is the ON/OFF switch on the "I" (ON) position?
  • Is the window open (is the magnet far enough from the Alarm unit)?
Battery Polarity Arrow Marking

  • The distance between the magnet and the Alarm unit is too large. The distance must be less than 10 mm.
  • The arrow on the magnet must point to the mark on the side of the Alarm unit.

Yes. It is however, not recommended for the main entrance door of a house or flat when you are absent, as you yourself will cause an alarm on leaving and entering the property.
Yes. However if you position the mini alarm on the inside, you yourself will cause an alarm when you open the door or drawer.
Metallic surfaces can reduce the strength of the magnetic field. Test the function of the unit by holding the components on the window and window frame, before final fixing. If no alarm sounds when the magnet is removed (window opened) then try the following:

  • Reduce the distance between the magnet and the Alarm unit.
  • Insert a wooden or plastic spacer under the magnet and if necessary under the Alarm unit in order to separate them from the metal surface.

Hold the Alarm unit and the magnet in the proposed position and by opening the window test the function. If the initial distance is too great the alarm will not stop when the window is closed. The following should help:

  • Use a plastic or wooden spacer under the magnet or alarm unit to reduce the distance.
  • Mount the magnet on the side of the opening window frame (see the picture below).

The batteries are used up. Insert new batteries. Observe polarity when inserting.
No. You can mount the unit on the opening sides of the window (see fig. 1/2/3). On the hinged side of the window the alarm will not operate (see fig. 4). Observe the following points when mounting:

GA50 Gas Alarm

  • Is the socket live? Test with another appliance which you know works.
  • Is the mains adapter pushed fully into the socket?
  • Are the cable ends of the mains adapter connected to the terminal screws on the gas alarm?
  • Are the terminal screws fully tightened? (Remove the mains adapter from the socket before checking the terminal screws.)

Once the power supply has been connected, an automatic self-test is carried out. The gas alarm emits several loud alarm signals. After a few seconds, the alarm will stop and the POWER LED will light up to indicate readiness for operation.
The sensor is heated while the unit is on. For this reason it is normal that the unit is slightly warm.
Depending on the type of gas, at the top or the bottom of the wall (see instruction manual).
The lower explosive limit is the minimum gas concentration in the air which makes an explosion possible.
The gas alarm is triggered when a gas concentration of approx. 5-6% of the lower explosive limit is reached.
The alarm will sound as long as the gas concentration is higher than approx. 5-6% of the lower explosive limit. As soon as the gas concentration falls back to below this threshold, the alarm will stop automatically and the unit will return to its normal status.
The sensor reacts to inflammable gases. An alarm may also be triggered by fumes from detergents, paint, varnish, sprays, cooking, tobacco or candles.
The gas alarm must be operated with 12V DC. The required current of 150mA may be supplied by a car battery. Smaller batteries are not able to supply this amount of power.
The gas alarm is intended for use in private households, where, under normal circumstances, no gas leak is expected.  It is not authorised for the use in hazardous locations.
Use a gas cigarette lighter (without the flame being lit!) to test the function of the gas alarm (see "Function test" in the instruction manual).
After approx. 5 years of operation, the gas alarm should be replaced.
No, there are special alarms for these types of gases.
No, there are special alarms for CO and CO2.
The odorising substance added to natural gas is designed to be smelt at very low concentrations, which can be below the alarm threshold of the gas alarm. Never try and test the gas alarm by using a gas appliance as there is a danger of explosion! Use a gas cigarette lighter as described in the instruction manual. If you smell gas or the alarm sounds at any time follow the instructions in the manual.
It could be due to a low level of gas in the room which is not sufficient to set off the alarm. Check the function in another room where there is lots of fresh air. If the noise stops in fresh air, have your gas installation checked.
For your safety the GA 617 has a diagnostic feature. Possible malfunction is indicated by simultaneous beeping noise together with blinking of the yellow fault LED. Please consult the user manual.

MC01 - Mini Camera

The further away an object is, the smaller it will appear on the screen. For example. Mountains in the distance can be seen, but someone standing on the mountain will not be visible. The camera does not have any zoom function.
The camera has an effective angle of vision of about 32°.
Yes, however this is not recommended as there will probably be problems with reflections. At night, the infra-red LEDs from the camera will be reflected in the glass.
The camera is weatherproof (IP 44) but not waterproof. Try and choose a mounting position which offers some protection against heavy rain falling directly on the camera.
Never attempt to cut the cable or to remove the plug. You can buy suitable extension cables (Model No. MC-10M) which are 10 metres long. Each is fitted with a plug and socket so they can simply be plugged onto to the original cable. The total length of the cable should not exceed 45 meters (i.e. you can add up to three 10 metre cables to the original cable). Scart-Cinch Adapter* [TV-Cinch]     Extension cable [MC-10M]
You can connect as many cameras as you have free AV-inputs. For example SCART inputs or Cinch (RCA) AV-inputs. You can also connect a camera to your video recorder.
Yes, simply connect the camera to a SCART input on the video recorder and select that input on the recorder.
your computer has a composite-video input (for example on a TV-receiver board) then you can connect the camera using a SCART-cinch adapter*. If the video board has only an S-Video input then you will need an additional adapter from composite-video (cinch socket) to S-Video (mini-DIN plug).
You can input the signals from the camera into the antenna (RF) system in your house using a RF-modulator. Please consult an electrician or an aerial specialist. M - Modulator V - Antenna distribution amplifier
You can connect via a video recorder or use a SCART expander (Scart-switcher). Alternatively you can use a SCART-cinch adapter if you have cinch (RCA) inputs*.
Please check the following:

  • Is the plug fully inserted into the base of the camera (see diagramm below)? You should hear 3 distinct clicks as you insert it.
  • Is the mains adapter connected properly?
  • Have you selected the correct AV input on your TV or video recorder?
  • Is the volume turned up to hear the sound?

The camera needs light to function. If the area you are observing is very dark no picture will be visible. Only the area right in front of the camera will be illuminated by the built in infra-red LEDs. Lighting the area with normal lamps (for example halogen spot lamps) will improve the picture greatly.
Yes.

SA101 Stove Alarm

After the stove alarm is installed, it needs to adjust to the kitchen environment. If the stove alarm starts to signal in a normal cooking situation, reset the alarm during the pre-alarm signal. This will cause the stove alarm to adjust its sensitivity.

  • Test the alarm by pushing the push-button (see manual)  until you hear a warning tone. If the stove alarm neither emits a tone nor flashes its light, the batteries may be flat. Replace the batteries (see "Battery replacement" in the manual).
  • Set the sensitivity level to a more sensitive level (see "Manually setting the sensitivity level of the stove alarm" in the manual). The stove alarm does not always signal immediately in a hazardous situation. This is because it needs to take into account  different cooking scenarios: if it would always signal immediately, too many false alarms would be triggered. If you would rather have the stove alarm to react earlier, increase the alarm's sensitivity by one or two levels (see "Manually setting the sensitivity level of the stove alarm" in the manual).

If the device still doesn't work, ask your retailer.

If the hob type has changed (e.g. from electric hob to gas hob), change the stove alarm hob type setting (see section "Operation" in the manual).
The battery lasts for up to five years. Please find information concerning the battery replacement in your product manual.
It is still possible to use the stove alarm. The stove alarm can also be installed on the wall using screws, at 40 cm height and at as central location as possible.
Unfortunately the Stove Alarm is not suitable for these kinds of cookers.

TM02 Acoustic Pressure Mat

The pressure mat should be covered for the following reasons:

  • To prevent it from slipping away
  • To protect the surface of the pressure mat
  • To hide the pressure mat (from burglars/visitors)
  • To prevent wear and damage

  • With a carpet, a mat, a cloth or a doormat
  • The covering material must not be too heavy or stiff, since the pressure mat reacts to points of pressure (no coconut mats or similar).

As soon as there is pressure on the mat. However, if the mat stays pressed, no further signal is generated.

  • Is the battery still functioning and has the correct polarity?
  • Is the unit switched on (not to "0")?
  • Is the cable connected correctly (is the plug inserted tightly) and is it not damaged?
  • Press another part of the mat to check its functioning.
  • Is the mat wet? If necessary, let it dry.
  • Does the mat lie on an uneven surface? There must be no bumps in the mat.
  • Are there any stones etc., on or under the mat?
  • Is the mat damaged?

  • If the mat lies on an uneven surface or gets damp, the sensor may become too sensitive. In this case, even wind or draught can trigger the signal.
  • Animals may trigger the signal.
  • Switch off the pressure mat, if you do not need it .

You may cut the cable and extend it by using a two-core cable. The total length must not exceed 30m.  Please note: This leads to the expiry of all warranty claims.
If the switch is in the "siren" position and the mat is pressed, an alarm sound can be heard for 30 seconds. The alarm can be interrupted by switching the switch to "0". If the switch stays in the "siren" position, the siren function is still active after the 30 seconds. If the mat is pressed once more, the alarm will sound for 30 seconds again.

SPECIAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE USE OF THE PRESSURE MAT AS A "CAT DOORBELL"

The mat must always be covered. Cover the pressure mat with a soft mat or a cloth your cat likes to sit on.
No, the pressure mat is safe for cats. There is no radiation or other danger.
Switch to the quiet setting or position the alarm unit further away from the door.
All active pressure loads will trigger the acoustic signal. You should only switch on the unit when your cat is outside and you need the signal function.

Mount the unit so that the lens is horizontal or slightly tilted downwards. In the horizontal mounting position movements across the protected area will be detected. Mount the unit so that the expected movement will be across the detection area.

Mounting height approx. 1m to 1.50m
good sensitivity to movements across the protected area not as sensitive to movements directly towards the unit

Mount the unit above the door. The protected area is now like a "curtain".

 

The unit reacts to movement of heat sources. People are heat sources. Other heat sources are for example:

  • Pets and other animals
  • Paper from a copier, printer or telefax machine
  • Warm air from a radiator
  • Warm air generated by sunlight
  • Air movements caused by air conditioning or fans

When you decide where to position the alarm unit, take into account that such possible disturbances should not be in the field of view of the unit. They could cause an unwanted alarm.

Check what disturbances could have caused this (see third question). If necessary change the location of the unit.
How quickly a movement is detected and how far the area of detection will be, is dependent on various factors:

  • On the temperature difference between the object / person and the surroundings. If there is a larger temperature difference the movement will be detected quicker.
  • On the speed of the movement. Very slow movements will not be detected.
  • On the direction of the movement (see first question).
  • On the ambient temperature. At higher temperatures the maximum detection range and the sensitivity for detection of people will be reduced.

No, the unit reacts to movement of heat sources to which it is directly exposed. If the unit is pointing towards a wall, curtain or window then it will react to the surface temperature of that material. It will not react to temperature changes behind these objects.

  • Check first of all the battery. Try a new battery.
  • Check that the battery is correctly connected and the contacts are pushed on fully.
  • If you are using a mains adapter instead of a battery, check the voltage (9V DC) and the polarity (the inside of the connector should be + positive).
  • If the switch is on position "0" the unit is switched off. Switch to position "Chime" or "Alarm".

When you move the switch to position "Alarm" there is a 15 second delay before the detection is activated.
When a movement has been detected whilst the alarm function is active, the siren will sound for 30 seconds. As long as the switch is on the "Alarm" position the alarm function remains active. If further movement is detected then the siren will sound again.
The door bell function is independent of the switch position. The unit will always make the double sound when a door bell or other connected switch is activated.
