Further information

Settings

No adjustments are required for normal use. The relevant descriptions are provided below, if you wish to change a setting for some reason.

Radio key

In order to use several Visit Systems close to one another without interference, different Radio Keys can be set on the different systems. All Visit System units are supplied from the factory tuned to the same Radio Key, channel 0. This means that all Radio Key Switches on the transmitters are set to the OFF position. 

  • To alter the Radio Key, move the Radio Key Switches (17) to the desired positions.

Please note:red triangle

All Bellman Visit products within the same system must be tuned to the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group.

Signal pattern

A Signal Pattern is the name for the way in which a receiver in the Bellman Visit System indicates activation. Changing the transmitters’ Signal Switch changes the Signal Pattern which the receivers display when the transmitter is activated. 

Type LED pattern Sound Vibration Flash
The following signal patterns are available for the Visit System: (Please note that the Guard Receiver does not emit any sound)
Green 1 Green is constantly lit 1 x ding dong, low-frequency tone Separate Yes

Advanced programming

Advanced programming provides additional options for those who wish to make special modifications to the Guard Receiver.

The idea is that it should be possible to select a completely unique signal pattern which is linked to activation from a specific input on a special Visit transmitter. The function works regardless of the Radio Key settings on the units that are programmed. Please note that, for safety reasons, the function does not work with the Visit Smoke Alarm.

By using advanced programming of the Visit Guard Receiver, it can be adjusted so that its signal pattern corresponds exactly to what is required. In other words an entirely individual signal pattern can be programmed, such as displaying an orange permanently lit LED and a constant vibration.

In order to adjust the setting, the Transmitter to which the Guard Receiver should be adapted must be available. The transmitter must also be connected so that it can be activated in precisely the way in which it is intended to be used.

Proceed as follows:

  1. Hold down the Test Button (2) on the Visit Guard Receiver until the green (4) and yellow (7) LEDs blink alternately. The Guard Receiver will now be in programming mode for about 30 seconds.
  2. Hold down the Test Button (2) at the same time as the relevant transmitter is activated in precisely the way in which it is intended to be used. Note that all inputs are individual. It is therefore not possible to use the Test Button on a Telephone Transmitter whose telephone input will indicate the relevant pattern.
  3. Scroll through the different LED options by a short press on the Test Button (2). Select the relevant indication by holding down the Test Button (2) until the LED (6) goes out and starts to shine with a constant green light again. 
  4. Scroll through the different vibration options by a short press on the Test Button (2). Select the relevant indication by holding down the Test Button (2) until the LED (6) goes out and starts to shine with a constant green light again.
  5. The Guard Receiver will now show the indication method programmed. End the display with a short press of the Test Button (2).
  6. After a short while, the Guard Receiver will automatically return to normal mode.

This function is essential where a transmitter has to work in a special way with regard to a specific receiver.

Resetting advanced programming

It is easy to reset the Visit Guard Receiver if it needs to be reset after it has been programmed using advanced programming.

  1. Hold down the Test Button (2) on the Visit Guard Receiver until the green (4) and yellow (7) LEDs blink alternately. The Guard Receiver will now be in programming mode for about 30 seconds.
  2. Press the Test Button (2) three times in quick succession.
  3. The LEDs (3, 4, 7 and 8) remain constantly on for a few seconds.
  4. All the advanced programming has now been deleted and the Guard Receiver will automatically return to normal mode.

Testing

It is easy to test the Guard Receiver. If the unit does not work as described below, you can check further below under Appendix/Further information/Troubleshooting/Troubleshooting guide.

How to test

  • A transmitter in the Visit System which is set to the same Radio Key as the Guard Receiver is required to test the flashing light and vibration, if the BE1270 Bellman Bed Shaker is connected, and the radio reception on the BE1465 Visit Guard Receiver.
  1. Press the transmitter test button.
  2. The Guard Receiver will give the following indications:
  • Flashing with the four flashing lights (1).
  • The LEDs (3, 4, 7 or 8) which the transmitter has been set to indicate with or which have been programmed into the Guard Receiver with Advanced Programming will be switched on.
  • If the BE1270 Bellman Bed Shaker is connected, it will vibrate as the transmitter has been set to indicate or in the way the Guard Receiver has been programmed to indicate via Advanced Programming.
  • Two tests are required to carry out a full test of the external trigger; one to test contact and another to test voltage. For further information see Appendix/Further information/Technical information/Activation below. Please note that when the Snooze Button (2) is pressed during an alarm from an external trigger, any further alarm via the external trigger will be ignored for about 45 seconds.
  1. Connect the alarm unit to the external trigger input (9).
  2. Activate the alarm.
  3. The Visit Guard Receiver will give the following indications:
  • Flashing with the flashing lights (1) on the front.
  • Switching on the LEDs (3, 4, 7 or 8) which were selected via the external trigger signal switch (18).
  • If the BE1270 Bellman Bed Shaker is connected, it will vibrate in the way selected via the external trigger signal switch (18).

A short press on the Test Button (2) activates BE1465 so that it repeats its last indication.

Test the Smoke Alarm System safety functions

After changing the batteries or when a product is replaced, all units should be tested.

  • Place the Guard Receiver in the position next to the bed where the Guard Receiver is normally positioned. Be careful when choosing the position to ensure that the Guard Receiver will not fall onto the floor, be exposed to moisture or be damaged in any other way because this may stop the Guard Receiver from working.
  • Check the bed shaker as follows
  1. Check that the Bed Shaker (19) vibrates when you press the Test Button (2).
  2. Unscrew the Safety Cover (13)
  3. Disconnect the Bed Shaker (19)
  4. Check that the LED that indicates a fault with the vibration function (5) lights up within 10 seconds.
  5. Reconnect the Bed Shaker (19), the warning lamp (5) should go out within 10 seconds.
  6. If it does not work, test using a new BE1270 Bellman Bed Shaker.
  7. Screw the Safety Cover back on (13)
  • Check the number of smoke alarms that are connected (maximum 8) as follows:
  1. Unscrew the screws (15) and open the battery cover (14). 
  2. Give one press on the Smoke Alarm Setting Button (16)
  3. The Guard Receiver flashes once for each smoke alarm that is connected.
  4. Refit the battery cover (14) using the screws (15).
  • Check the Radio Links between the Guard Receiver and connect the smoke alarm(s)
  1. Check that the Smoke Alarm System LED (8) is not blinking yellow.
  2. Check that the Smoke Alarm System Switches (23)on all Smoke Alarms are set to ON. Also check that they are not blinking yellow with the Smoke Alarm Test Button (24).
  3. Take the battery out of a smoke alarm
  4. The Smoke Alarm System LED (8) should start to blink yellow after about 5-10 minutes.
  5. Insert the battery again and wait for about 10 seconds until the smoke alarm is blinking red.
  6. Test the Smoke Alarm by pressing and holding in its Test Button for 5 seconds. 
  7. The Guard Receiver will indicate an alarm via the smoke alarm system LED (8), flash and vibration, via the Best Shaker,
  8. The Smoke Alarm System LED (8) should stop blinking yellow after about 5-10 minutes.
  9. Repeat the steps 1 to 8 with all the smoke alarms that are connected.
