Water Resistance

Personal Smart-Wave transmitters are water resistant to a depth of 60 feet. Alarm Electronics will replace at no charge any personal Smart-Wave transmitter which is damaged by water in normal use. Frequent testing is advised if the transmitters are used in environments which expose the unit to water. The transmitters are not designed for constant exposure to high temperatures, chemicals, strong detergents, cleaning agents, solvents, etc.

Battery Life

Personal Smart-Wave transmitters are powered by long life lithium batteries which are maintenance free and not intended to be replaced. The battery manufacturer specifies the batteries lose only approximately 1-2% of their capacity per year of shelf life and even after 10 years, should have 80% of their original capacity. In the typical application, the capacity of the battery allows for 50,000 to 100,000 operating seconds. This long term battery life saves many service calls and many times the cost of transmitters over the lifetime of the security system. For those who are concerned, the battery status is transmitted as part of the key code each time the transmitter is activated. Those receivers with non-polled supervision will give a low battery output if the transmitter battery is not within specifications.


The personal Smart-Wave transmitters are encoded to one of 65,000 unique key codes. The coding is random unless otherwise requested by the customer. Matched sets or specific sequences are available at no extra charge.

Matching Transmitters to Receivers

Transmitter key codes are matched to the receivers or decoders by activating the transmitter at the same time the receiver "Teach" button is pressed.
