Portable Flash Receiver

The Visit Portable Flash Receiver
Art. no. BE1540

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. Unscrew the screws (12) and open the battery cover (11). Fit the four TMK C400T type NiMh batteries supplied and refit the battery cover (11) using the screws (12). Connect the power supply unit to the socket (9). Press the Test Button (2). The Visit Portable Flash Receiver will then start flashing 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. The Portable Flash Receiver will then start flashing and emitting a light signal, and if a BE1270 Visit Bed Shaker (accessory) is connected, it will vibrate.
  3. Place the Portable Flash Receiver upright on a level surface. The receiver should be placed where it can best be seen. The Receiver can be used as a portable unit without connecting the power supply unit, thanks to the rechargeable batteries.

Please note! Do not use any batteries other than TMK C400T!

Function

General

The BE1540 Visit Portable Flash Receiver is a receiver within the Visit system for indoor use, which attracts the attention of the user with a flashing light, light signal, and also by vibration if a BE1270 Bellman Bed Shaker (accessory) is connected.

It is activated via radio signals from any transmitter within the Visit System or via an external trigger input (8).
A short press on the Test Button (2) activates BE1540 so that it repeats its last indication.

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 (2) for about five seconds until the LEDs (4) and (6) blink alternately. Then press the transmitter’s test button so that the receiver’s LEDs (3-6) 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.

External trigger

It is possible to connect the vibrator output on several of Bellman & Symfon AB’s products or other equipment that forms a contact or voltage to an external trigger (17) for activation. In this way the Visit Alarm Clock can be made to work as alarm equipment, e.g. for an existing fire alarm.

During activation via the External Trigger (17), further activations can be ignored for 45 seconds if the Snooze Button is pressed. 

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 Flash Receiver has a function which allows you to easily check which alarm was the last one detected. Give a short press on the Test Button (2) and the last alarm will be repeated.

System indicators

The LEDs (3 - 6) that indicate which transmitter has activated the Portable Flash normally have the following meanings.

  • Orange LED (3) indicates a baby monitor.
  • Green LED (4) indicates a door transmitter.
  • Yellow LED (6) indicates a telephone transmitter.
  • Red LED (5) indicates a fire alarm.

If the green (4) and yellow (6) LEDs blink alternately, this indicates that the Portable Flash is in radio key selection mode. The Portable Flash 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.

Flashing light

When the Portable Flash is activated, the four flashing lights flash (1) with a bright white light. 

Vibration

The Portable Flash Receiver can power a BE1270 Bed Shaker (accessory) connected to the socket (10). The bed shaker is placed under the pillow to wake the user up when the Portable Flash Receiver is activated. 

Refer to the user manual for the relevant Visit transmitter for more information about vibration patterns.

Power supply

The LED (7) is constantly green when the power supply unit is connected correctly.
The LED (7) blinks green when the Portable Flash is battery operated.
When the LED (7) blinks yellow, the batteries are nearly flat and must be charged. Connect the power supply unit and charge the Portable Flash for at least 24 hours.

Troubleshooting in brief

PROBLEMSOLUTION
Nothing happens.                                 
  • Check that the power supply unit is connected correctly. The LED (7) should light up green.
  • Check that there is current in the wall socket.
  • Check the batteries. Please note! Do not use any batteries other than TMK C400T!
The LED (7) lights up yellow when the Receiver is activated.
  • Charge the batteries by connecting the power supply unit to the charging socket (9). Please note! Do not use any batteries other than TMK C400T!
The receiver is not activated.
  • Check the batteries 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 receivers in the system transmit signals for no reason.
  • Change the Radio Key on all units in the system. For further information see Function/Radio key.
