Wireless Wall Transmitter
GENERAL INFORMATION The 5878 is a compact, 6-button wall-mounted wireless transmitter that permits an alarm system or home automation devices to be controlled remotely. The transmitter is typically used for security system arming and panic and controlling output relay operations associated with home automation devices. Check with your installer for operation of the buttons on your unit. OPERATING THE BUTTONS To activate a programmed function, press and hold the associated button(s) down. The LED will flash green to indicate the unit has transmitted in Standard mode, or red to indicate it has transmitted in High-Security mode.
In order to minimize the possibility of accidental transmissions, the buttons on the 5878 must be pressed and held for at least 1/2 second to activate the transmitter.
LOW BATTERY INDICATION When a Button is pressed and a Low Battery condition exists, a message is transmitted to the control panel and LOW BAT will be displayed on the keypad. The LED will not flash during transmission if the battery is low. Replacing the Battery 1. Slide out the battery tray located at the bottom of the 5878. 2. Carefully remove the battery. 3. Press and hold any button for at least one second. 4. Insert a new battery in case back location as shown in Figure 2. Positive (+) end must face up. Use Maxell CR2032, Duracell DL 20325, or Varta CR2032 lithium battery only. 5. Slide the battery back into the 5878. 6. Press any button and verify that the LED flashes.

Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal objects before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object somehow blocks the signal path. Wireless button type transmitters that have visual and audible indications of status must be used to confirm that the desired action (such as arming) has occurred after pressing a function button on any of these transmitters. Be sure to listen for appropriate audible and visual indications that such action has occurred. Otherwise, you could inadvertently leave yourself or your premises unprotected. External factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, or constant activation of a programmed button may reduce battery life in a given installation. If the button unit is used infrequently, activate it regularly (once per week) to confirm operation. A button type transmitter will report a low battery condition to the alarm control when a low battery status is detected. FOR WARRANTY INFORMATION AND FOR DETAILS REGARDING THE LIMITATIONS OF THE ENTIRE ALARM SYSTEM, REFER TO THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE RECEIVER/CONTROL WITH WHICH THIS DEVICE IS USED.
