Q2: What other features does SM-87L possess?
A2: The SM-87L (door/window sensor) other feature is when the door or window is open and then closes, the alarm host will beep 5 times to indicate that the door or window has been open and closed.
Q3: What are the significant differences between Air-Alarm1 and Air-AlarmII kits?
A3: Here is a list of the primary differences between Air-Alarm1 and Air-AlarmII:

A4: Air-AlarmII series have been tested and are known to be compatible with Vonage (model VDV22-VD) and Verizon Home Phone Connect Box digital phone devices or VoIP. It will not be compatible with Fios and U-Verse digital phone services. For all other digital phone services that are not listed such as Comcast, MagicJack, please click here.
Q5: Can I use my Air-Alarm1 sensors with my new Air-AlarmII host or vice versa?
A5: Yes, all the sensors from Air-Alarm1 can be integrated with the new Air-AlarmII host. One exception for the SM-87B sensor is that it will work as a standard door/window sensor without the Smart feature in SM-87L sensor. Yes, all the sensors from the new Air-AlarmII are backwards compatible with the Air-Alarm1 host (SM-8088E).
Q6: Can I use the Doorbell as a panic button?
A6: Yes, but it is not recommended, we recommend to use the Doorbell in zones 06~10 as a standard doorbell feature.
Q7: Can I use the remote controls as a panic button?
Q8: What is the difference between SM-87B and SM-87L? Can they both be used with Air-AlarmII?
A8: The difference between SM-87B and SM-87L is that the SM-87L has “Smart Sensor” feature, the ability to detect the open status of the door/window when attempting to arm the system plus beeps when door/window is open and close. If you don’t feel you need the “Smart Sensor” feature, this feature can also be disable, please refer to the user’s manual for detail.
Q9: Why it takes 40 seconds for the alarm host to be armed after I press the “AWAY” or “HOME” button?
A9: The 40 seconds dwell time delay or exiting delay time is to allow plenty of time to leave the premises after the alarm host is armed.
Q10: How do I know when the batteries in my sensors have to be replaced?
A10: Most of our battery operated sensors are equipped with a ‘Low Battery’ indication. For example:
•SM-87B (Door/Window sensor) the red LED will stay lit, rather than flash on/off when triggered.
Q11: If more than one door/window sensors are paired to a zone, I opened the first door/window a visual notification on the panel indicates that it’s open, I then open the second door/window, and the notification continues to flash. However, once I close any one or more of the door/window, the notification window icon LED stops flashing. What is happening?
A11:The host recognizes the last input command given. Thus, although there is one door/window open, once the sensor is closed in that given zone, it overrides any currently opened door/window and stops the window flash LED notification.
Q12:What happens if the first telephone group user does not pick up the call when the alarm is tripped?
A12: The alarm will skip to the next group if the user does not pick up the call within 22 seconds of the first ring.
Q13: If the alarm dials out to its designated telephone users and every user does not pick up the call, what will happen?
A13: The alarm will cycle through the telephone group a total of 3 times. If the entire group does not pick up, it will end the attempt to dial out and re-arm itself.
Q14: Can I input international telephone numbers?
A14: Yes, as long as there are no “Star” or “Pound” symbol in the telephone number.
Q15: Is a telephone required for the phone function to work?
A15: No you do not. The panel woks as a dialing system to dial out to any registered phone in its system.
