Any tips for completing a proper install?
Installation is straightforward and requires no special skills other than your existing expertise with HVAC systems and basic wiring. Consider the following tips for a smooth, trouble-free installation:
Tip #1: When installing the HSRS wireless system, be careful to avoid contacting the antenna to any grounded surface such as the HVAC equipment chassis.
Tip #2: For best RF reception, locate the antenna as high as possible (i.e., just below the ceiling). Also, ensure a minimum separation of 3 feet from any of the following:
Tip #3: Before permanently mounting wireless door/window sensors, first complete the registration (i.e., pairing) procedure, keeping the sensors close-at-hand for convenience. Following registration, test to ensure the controller unit recognizes door sensor activity. Once you are satisfied the system is behaving properly, apply the sensors as desired.
Is it safe for my A/C compressor?
Absolutely! First, consider that modern HVAC systems are equipped with built-in delay mechanisms to ensure that refrigerant pressures have equalized before allowing the compressor to start. Second, our HSRS controller features its own configurable re-activation delay that prevents the HVAC system from restarting until the desired time elapse. Though this feature is completely optional for most installations, we find that some customers prefer to deploy it for added peace of mind.
