You can't find the system manual for ONDARADIO in the catalogue?

The system is no longer produced, but you can download the PDF of the system manual.

Is it possible to connect the 01941 GSM dialler to the control unit?

Yes, using the 01751 relay board.

Is it possible to set a delay in any zone of​the control unit?

No, you can only select a delay for devices allocated to zones 1 and 3.

How many and how long are the cycles of alarm sirens?

The cycle is unique for each alarm cycle for both for the internal and external sirens; the duration can be set through the control unit (120-250s). Use a jumper to limit the duration of the sound of the outdoor siren to 30s.

When automatic partitioning is active, which areas are excluded?

Zones 3 and 4.

Why, when querying the status of the system from the keypad, the LEDs start lighting up cyclically without giving a correct answer?

There might be communication problems between the control unit and keyboard, the solution could be to bring the keypad closer to the control unit or reconfigure the device.

Why don't the keypad LEDs light up to indicate the status of the system (Armed/Disarmed/Partially Armed)?

The "status" function has not been activated or acquisition of the keypad has not been performed correctly and completely (communication acquisition and tampering function).

Why does the siren continue to sound after pressing the TEST button?

The test button wasn't held down for long enough, press and hold the TEST button for a longer period.

Why doesn't the siren sound when I press the TEST button of the control unit?

There are alarms present in the memory. Find the cause that is generating the alarm (LED status of the control unit) and then proceed with system reset.

What is the procedure for acquiring a sensor in an area other than the one already assigned?

Proceed to acquire the sensor and the control unit will give the option of assigning the registered sensor to another area at the end of the process. The device is then automatically moved to the new area.

Why can't I get the the control unit to acquire / delete a device while it emits strange sounds?

Dip-switch 1 of the control unit is not in the correct position: the operation is only possible if it is in the OFF position. If it is in the ON position, it means that you have activated the anti-scanning function.

Why is it that when arming and disarming the control unit, it emits different tones to the usual ones when switching on and off?

Check the event log for any alarm signals.

Why does the control unit alarm sound when the system is disarmed?

This signal indicates an attempt to tamper with one of the devices of the system or the control unit itself. Check the event log to identify the zone that caused the alarm.

What should I do when the magnetic contact no longer detect?

Check to see if upon opening the contact, the LED lights up. Otherwise: - Check that the sensor has been properly registered by the control unit - Check the condition of the batteries - Check the distance/RF coverage between control unit and sensor.

Why is the IR sensor emitting a continuous whistling sound?

The whistling indicates that you need to replace the batteries. When you hear a signal like this, it's a good idea to check the batteries of all the components in the system.

Why doesn't the red LED on the 01761 IR sensor turn on?

It is normal if it is not in test phase. If you want to have a light signal during detection, use the 01760 detector.

Why does the IR detector sometimes not detect and seem locked?

To save battery life RF IR detectors are rested for 3-4 minutes after a detection. You must then wait 3-4 minutes before the device can send a new alarm message. This also happens when you turn on the system, so for the first 3-4 minutes, IR detectors do not send any signal.

What should I do when the IR detector does not detect anything?

- Check that the detector has been properly acquired by the control unit - Check the condition of the batteries - Check the distance/RF coverage between control unit and detector.
