Troubleshooting

If the alarm does not work when a LED reset is pressed, there is probably something wrong with the battery. Check that it is properly installed. Replace battery if it is discharged.

In case of bad signal or low signal, try to install the alarm somewhere else. You can also use a smart plug to boost the signal (signal amplifier). Or you can relocalize the gateway.

If the search for a gateway has timed out, you can restart it by pressing quickly once on the LED button.
