Alarms

General

I am having difficulty ‘learning’ in my PIR detectors, what can I do?

Wait until the red light ceases to flash, 30 seconds after insertion of the batteries, press the test button. If the problem persists, remove and reinsert the detector batteries and repeat the ‘learning’ process.

I wish to part set my Yale alarm at night. What setting must I program the upstairs detectors to?

The sensors upstairs must be programmed as ‘Home Omit’, to exclude them when in the ‘Home’ arm mode.

If you have already configured your alarm, you can edit the settings of each device in the ‘Edit Devices’ sub- menu of the programming mode.

I am planning on using window contacts on my child’s playroom downstairs. Can I program these to always trigger the alarm if a window(s) is opened?

Yes, Yale alarms have a ‘24 hour’ setting available to constantly trigger the alarm in the event such a

detector is activated. The alarm does not have to armed for the siren to be triggered by a sensor programmed as ’24 hour’, a useful application for a ground floor.

I have a magnetic contact on my front door. Whenever I enter the property, why does my alarm trigger immediately without sufficient time to get to the control panel?

The detector at the point of entry must be programmed as ‘Entry’. Please check the programming of the detector under the ‘Devices +/-‘menu, amend from ‘Burglar’ or another mode, if necessary, and retest.

I have a shed / garage, will I be able to use a detector in this location?

There will not be a problem in using a detector in this location, provided it is within the maximum 30 metre range from the control panel.

It is recommended to use a door magnetic contact in this application, however, rather than a PIR in order to prevent false alarms from insects and rodents.

I have pets at home. Is it likely they trigger my alarm, if so how can I overcome this problem?

Animals will most likely trigger standard PIR’s when the alarm is set. A special range of ‘pet friendly detectors’HSA6021 are now available from the Yale website. Alternatively, a magnetic door contact could be used in place of a PIR for this purpose.

To what height should I position my PIR’s for optimum performance?

The best height is around 2.3m above the floor, situated in the corner of the room.

Why does my magnetic window contact not trigger the alarm when I open the window?

Try moving the magnet closer to the main contact block, the gap should be no more than 8mm. Sometimes packaging may be required for uPVC doors and windows, to bring the contacts and magnets closer together.

Ensure the red LED comes on when you break the magnetic contacts.

What is the maximum movement detection range of a PIR?

The PIR’s will respond to movement of up to 15 metres away.

Should the red light flash on my PIR?

The red PIR lights will not always flash, to conserve the battery life. If you are in any doubt of the operation of a PIR, vacate the area for up to 60 seconds, and test using the ‘walk test’ facility.
