Installation and Operation
The Door Handle Alarm is a safety device to be used at home, work or for travel.
This alarm is designed to be used on a metal door handle and has an adjustable hanging cord size for versatility. The alarm produces a 125 dB siren when someone touches or attempts to touch the metal door handle.The siren will last for a short period; you will not need to silence the alarm.
After hanging the alarm on the metal door handle, turn the alarm on by turning the control on the side of the unit upwards. For maximum sensitivity, turn to III, for medium sensitivity turn to II and for minimum sensitivity turn to I. The red LED will illuminate and the alarm will be active. An exit delay of 6 seconds will allow you to exit the door without the alarm sounding.
The sensitivity required will depend on the composition of the door handle, the objects surrounding the handle (such as keys, chains etc) and the size of the handle. You can test this by setting to the lowest sensitivity and attempt to open the door after 6 seconds. If the siren sounds before you touch the handle then this is the advised level. If not, try again at a higher level.
The alarm requires 3 X AAA Batteries (supplied and fitted). Before use, remove the protective plastic strip to activate the batteries. The change the batteries, open the battery cover at the back of the unit and replace the old batteries, noting the correct polarity.
