smanos smart home alarm systems in use
Depending on which smanos system you have, there are several ways in which you will be informed in case of an alarm. In all cases, the internal siren will sound on the panel and any optional external sirens will sound too. You will then receive a notification via a push message, SMS and / or phone call and you can respond immediately through the app, SMS or the keypad of the phone.
The average range of a smanos system is in open field about 100 meters or more. Maximum range indoors depends on the thickness of the walls, the material and possible interference from other signals. If the range is affected in such a way that the range is not sufficient, it can always be extended with a smanos signal repeater.
When a power failure occurs, the built-in rechargeable battery will take over the operation of the panel. A message is sent to the administrator that the power failed. Depending on the system, the average standby time of a panel is 8 hours.
There are different settings for the sensors. If a sensor is set in the home mode and home mode is enabled on the system, then the system will not sound the alarm when these sensors are triggered.
All contemporary Wifi standards on 2.4 GHz are supported. The speed of the Internet can have effect on the performance of the system. It is recommended to use a fast and well-functioning Internet connection for optimum performance.

The PIR motion detector is equipped with an energy-saving mode. If motion is detected twice within 3 minutes the detector will go into ‘sleeping mode’ to save energy. The LED will not flash and no signal is sent to the control panel. If no movement is detected after 3 minutes, the motion detector will automatically return to the normal state and will be triggered directly when seeing movement.
The night light function can be activated by pressing twice on the home button on the remote control. This works best if there is some time between the two clicks. A good indicator for the duration between clicking the button is the light on the remote control. When the LED indicator is off after the first click on the home button, it can be pressed the second time. When the night light function is activated the home mode is activated.
Silent mode ensures that no confirmation tone for delay is used by the system. This function can be used by first clicking on the home button on the remote control and then the arm or disarm button. Generally, when pressing the home button and the LED indicator is off, the arm or disarm button can be pressed to ensure it always works correctly.
Press the connect button on the control panel 6 seconds, the control panel will beep once and the LED indicator flashes twice.
