Portable Receiver

The Visit Portable Receiver
Art. no. BE1450

Introduction

The Visit system consists of a number of radio transmitters and receivers. The transmitters detect  different events in the surrounding area and transmit a radio signal to the receivers. The receivers pick up this signal and provide indications using light, sound and/or vibration.

The transmitter determines what type of light, sound or vibration should be displayed so that the reason for the indication is evident. Read through the entire user manual first and then start to install the system.

Getting started

Unpacking, installing and testing the unit

  1. Open the battery cover (10). Fit four LR14 alkaline type batteries and close the battery cover. Press the Test Button (12). The Visit Portable Receiver will then emit sound and light signals and, if a BE1270 Bellman Bed-shaker (accessory) is connected, it will vibrate.
  2. A Visit Transmitter is required to test the radio reception. Press the Test Button on the Visit Transmitter and the Portable Receiver will then emit sound and light signals and, if a BE1270 Bellman Bed-shaker (accessory) is connected, it will vibrate.
  3. Place the Visit Portable Receiver upright on a level surface or mount it on the wall using the wall mount bracket supplied. The receiver should be placed where it can best be seen and heard. It is also easy to take the Portable Receiver with you wherever you go.

Function

General

The BE1450 Visit Portable Receiver is a receiver within the Visit system for indoor use, which attracts the attention of the user using sound, light and also vibration if a BE1270 Bellman Bed-shaker (accessory) is connected.

It is activated via radio signals from any transmitter within the Visit System. 

Radio key

On delivery all Visit units are tuned to the same Radio Key. If you have a neighbour with a similar system, you can change to different Radio Keys so that you do not affect each other’s systems. 

The Radio Key on this receiver can be changed by holding down the Test Button (12) for about five seconds until the LEDs (5) and (6) blink alternately. Then press the transmitter’s test button so that the receiver’s LEDs (4-7) blink to confirm that the Radio Key has been changed. All units in a Visit System must have the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group. Refer to the user manual for the relevant unit.

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

Indicators and Signals

It is generally the transmitters in the Visit System that determine how the receivers will indicate an alarm. See the description in the relevant transmitter user manual for further information.

The Portable Receiver has a function which allows you to easily check which alarm was the last one detected. If you press the Test Button (12) once, the last alarm will be repeated.

System indicators

The LED (2) blinks once when the Portable Receiver is activated by a transmitter sending a radio signal to the Receiver.

The LEDs (4 - 7) that indicate which transmitter has activated the Portable Receiver normally have the following meanings:

  • Orange LED (4) indicates a baby cry transmitter.
  • Green LED (5) indicates a door transmitter.
  • Yellow LED (6) indicates a telephone transmitter.
  • Red LED (7) indicates a fire alarm

If the green (5) and yellow (6) LEDs blink alternately, this indicates that the Portable Receiver is in radio key selection mode. The Portable Receiver will then wait for a radio signal from a transmitter in the Visit System which will adjust the receiver to the same radio key as the transmitter is tuned to.

Sound

The Portable Receiver sounds an alarm. The sound volume can be adjusted between 0 and 93 dBA maximum at 1 metre by using the volume control (1). The main frequency range is 500 – 1000 Hz. Refer to the user manual for the relevant Visit transmitter for more information about the types of sounds that can be emitted

Light

When the Visit Portable Receiver is activated, the LEDs (3) blink with a bright light.

Vibration

The Portable Receiver can power a BE1270 Bellman Bed-shaker (accessory) connected to the socket (8). The bed shaker is placed under the pillow to wake the user up when the Portable Receiver is activated. Refer to the user manual for the relevant transmitter for more information about vibration patterns.

Power supply

When the LED (2) lights up green during activation, the unit is working correctly.

When the LED (2) lights up yellow during activation, the unit is working correctly, but the batteries are flat and must be changed. Only use LR14 alkaline type batteries.

When the LED (2) is constantly green, the Portable Receiver is powered by an external power supply (accessory) via the power supply unit connection socket (9).

Troubleshooting in brief

PROBLEMSOLUTION
Nothing happens.                                 
  • Change the batteries. Only use LR14 alkaline type batteries.
The receiver is not emitting any sound signals.
  • Turn up the volume using the volume control (1).
The receiver emits a sound but no light signal.
  • Check that on/off light signal switch (11) is set to the ON position.
The LED (2) lights up yellow when the Receiver is activated.
  • Change the batteries. Only use LR14 alkaline type batteries.
The receiver is not activated, but works when the test button is used.
  • Check the battery in the transmitters.
  • Check that the receiver is not placed too far away from the transmitters by moving it closer to the transmitters.
  • Check that the receiver is set to the correct radio key. For further information see Function/Radio key.
The receiver signals when no transmitter is activated.
  • Change the Radio Key on all units in the system. For further information see Function/Radio key.
