FEATURES

Your Radio Shack Central 2000 Easy Installation Monitored Motion Detector Security System brings a new level of protection to your home. Its PIR (Passive InfraRed) motion sensor gives a full 180 degrees of coverage. Once armed, it reports movement to ORCA® Monitoring Service’s trained staff of security professionals who call you to verify the problem and then call the police and up to three other people you designate.

Your system includes these features:

Simple Installation —lets you start using the system by simply connecting it to power and a telephone line and setting up your account with ORCA Monitoring Services.

Built-In100 dB Alarm—sounds when the system is armed and detects motion.

Warning Stickers —discouragepotential burglars by alerting them to the presence of an alarm system.

Easy Arming and Disarming —uses the telephones in your home for quick arming and disarming.

ORCA-MonitoredSecurity—means you get 24-hour monitoring, which alerts the police, neighbors, or you at work if the system detects unauthorized motion.

Note: The security functions of this system have not been tested by UL.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your security system to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s Ringer Equivalence Number, or REN (shown on the back of your system).

If you are using more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, your phones might not ring. In rural areas, a total REN of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, disconnect one of the devices from the line.

This security system complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your phone company. Both numbers are shown on the back of the system.

Note: You must not connect this system to:

HOW THE SYSTEM WORKS

Your security system detects movement within a 180° arc up to 36 feet away. Once your system is armed, any movement within this range automatically triggers the alarm.

After you set up your account with ORCA Monitoring Services, your system calls and reports alarms to their trained staff of security professionals.

The ORCA Monitoring Services staff first tries to contact you to verify that it is not a false alarm. By calling you first, ORCA Monitoring Services ensures that the police are not contacted if you accidentally set off your alarm.

In alarm situations, the monitoring center dispatches the police to your address and tries to contact someone you listed on your emergency call list. (You might want to list your work phone number as the first number.)

ORCA Monitoring Services tries each number once in the order that you listed them on your monitoring agreement. If ORCA Monitoring Services contacts one of the people listed, they do not disturb the other people on the list.

SETTING UP MONITORED SERVICE

To set up service, you need to:

Fill out the enclosed monitoring agreement and mail or fax it to ORCA Monitoring Services.

Monitored service does not begin until ORCA Monitoring Services receives and processes your monitoring agreement. Allow 24 hours for faxed requests and 5 days for mailed requests.

Install the system

Call ORCA Monitoring Services at 1-800-FOR-ORCA(1-800-367-6722) from a telephone on the same line as your system to have the system initialized.

During the call, ORCA Monitoring Services programs the PIN and other settings (listed on Page 6) into the system. The preferred settings work best for most situations. However, you can ask ORCA Monitoring Services to change these settings to make the system work best for you.

tion Number (PIN)

Preferred setting: You select the 4-digit PIN you use to control your system.

Note: Do not select a PIN that starts with 0, 911, or 411.

Each can be set from 20 to 275 seconds.

o Entry Delay Warning Beeps

Preferred setting: Beeping during the entry delay.

Can be set to sound only one beep at the beginning of the entry delay.

o Touch Tone Dialing

Preferred setting: Touch-tone dialing.

Can be set to use rotary dialing if you do not subscribe to touch-toneservice from your local telephone company.

o Silent Alarm

Preferred setting: Audible alarm.

Can be set to only call ORCA Monitoring Services and not sound the siren at all.

o Security System Answer

Preferred setting: The system answers the phone in 8 rings.

Can be set not to answer or to answer in 1 to 10 rings.

PREPARATION

SELECTING A LOCATION

For your security system to be most effective, you need to install it in a location that meets all of the following conditions:

Is near an AC outlet.

Note: If your best location is not near an AC outlet, you can have an electrician install an outlet for you.

Is near a modular telephone jack.

Note: If your best location is not near a modular telephone jack, you can install a modular jack yourself or have the telephone company install one for you.

Radio Shack stores sell jacks, adapters, and telephone wiring.

The telephone company charges to install the necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ-11C(or RJ11W for a wall plate jack).

Overlooks an area that an intruder would most likely cross when entering or moving through your home.

You can place the system on a shelf or table, or mount it on a wall or in the corner of a room. The system detects movement by sensing a change in temperature within its field of view. When someone walks past the system, it detects the temperature change and triggers the alarm.

Also, note that the system is more sensitive to movement across its coverage area than to movement directly toward or away from it.

Does not directly face a window, heating or air conditioning vent, appliance, outside wall, or other heat source.

These sources could produce rapid temperature changes that the system might incorrectly identify as an intruder.

Is high enough not to be triggered by pets, yet is low enough to be triggered by someone of average height walking across the area.

To help prevent false alarms caused by pets, the system senses motion at or above its mounted location. It does not sense motion below where you mount it. In most installations, a location about 31/2 feet off the floor provides the best security.

TESTING THE LOCATION

Once you select a location and before you mount it, follow these steps to test the system’s coverage.

Note: To test the location, you do not need to connect the system to the phone line, install a backup battery, or set up service.

1.Plug the power adapter’s barrel plug into the jack on the back of the system as shown on Page 10.

2.Plug the power adapter into an AC outlet as shown on Page 10.

Notes:

If you have not installed a backup battery, the POWER indicator flashes.

If you have not connected the system to the phone line, the system chirps once per second.

3.Place the system at the selected location. If you selected a location on a wall, place the system on a stepladder or something similar to position it as close as possible to its final mounting location.

4.Walk around the area you want to protect. When the system detects your movement, its ARMED indicator flashes.

5.Adjust the system’s position until you are satisfied with its coverage.

MOUNTING THE SYSTEM

You can mount the system on a wall or simply place it on a desk, table, or shelf.

To mount the system on a wall, use the supplied screws, or screws suitable to the mounting surface, to secure the mounting bracket at the selected location.

Mounting on a Wall Mounting in the Corner

After you connect the system to power, install a battery, and connect it to the telephone line, you will simply hang the system on the bracket.

SERVICE ARMED POWER

INSTALLING A BACKUP BATTERY

If AC power is disconnected or fails, your system operates for up to 24 hours from a 9-voltalkaline battery (Radio Shack Cat. No.23-553,not supplied).

Warning: To prevent a possible electric shock, always disconnect the system from the phone line before you install or replace the battery.

Follow these steps to install the battery.

1.Lift off the battery compartment cover.

2.Clip a 9-voltalkaline battery onto the battery contacts, then place the battery into the compartment.

3.Replace the cover.

When the battery becomes low, the POWER indicator blinks. Replace the battery immediately.
