Outdoor Siren Power Sources

 

The Outdoor Siren has multiple battery and hardwired power options to choose from for your convenience, and you can set them up in any order. If you plan to use the Dusk to Dawn light setting, you must have more than one power source. 

Before you begin, make sure the battery cover is off. When you finish connecting your power sources, replace the back cover and tighten the screws. Then attach the Outdoor Siren to the mounting bracket. Tighten the security screw on the bottom of the bracket. 

 

Use these directions for each power source.
