HOW TO SET UP THE ENVIRONMENTAL SENSOR FOR WATER SENSING:


Installing the Environmental Sensor as a Flood Sensor:
1.  Locate Honeywell 5821 (red and white) box and remove white wireless transmitter from box.
2.  Using flat object such as a screwdriver, pry off top cover of transmitter and set aside.
3.  Press down on the mounting plate bracket release tab to remove (slide off) the mounting plate. Place the mounting plate aside.
4.  Reference table to determine desired sensing type (Hot Temp, Cold Temp, Warm Temp or Flood [water]). Using tip of paperclip (or similar object) push white (sliding) buttons of DIP switch into configuration that corresponds to desired sensing type.
 
To Set Flood Sensor (Hot, Warm or Cold):
1.  Locate Water Probe assembly (with wires attached as shown) and mount near “baseline” surface (ex. floor) using supplied double-faced tape or suitable wall mounting screws (not supplied); probe should be mounted between 0 to 1/8” above baseline surface.
2.  Loop free end of Water Probe wire through back of Wireless Transmitter and connect wire pair to loop terminal block by inserting wires (individually) into loop terminals and tightening screws  
Note: it does not matter which color wire is inserted into terminal ports
3.  Determine best location to install Mounting Plate above location where Water Probe has been installed, being careful not to position it too high (beyond the length of the wires now connecting Water Probe and Wireless Transmitter).
4.  Using either supplied screws or double-faced adhesive tape, secure Mounting Bracket to a flat surface (wall or ceiling).
5.  Install CR123A Battery (supplied) into Wireless Transmitter noting correct orientation of positive (+) and negative (-) ends.
6.  Position Wireless Transmitter over Mounting Plate and slide Wireless Transmitter securely into place (until it clicks).
 
To Add Sensor to LifeShield System:
1.  Once Flood Sensor is installed it must be “added” to LifeShield system in order to function. You will need a Handset (or Console) to add it.
2.  Enter SECURITY menu on Handset (or Console).
3.  On Handset (or Console) press MENU, scroll to Security Setup and press SELECT and enter Master Code.
4.  Scroll to Sensors and press SELECT.
5.  Scroll to <Add New> and press SELECT.
6.  Scroll to Environmental and press SELECT.
7.  Following instructions displayed on Handset (or Console) wait 5 seconds, then press and release red “tamper” button on Wireless Transmitter.
8.  Use “Edit” feature to rename device (optional) Note: Press DELETE to erase text and use keypad to type in a new name, then press OK. 
9.  Scroll down to select type of condition to which this Sensor will be associated (flood, cold, warm or hot) and press SELECT. Press OK to return to Main Menu
10. Position top cover in place over Wireless Transmitter and snap into place, being careful not to pinch or cut wires leading to the Water Probe.

To Test the Sensor:
1.  To test that Environmental Sensor can detect water, wrap a wet washcloth around two silver prongs for a few minutes. You should see system alert you to the presence of water.
