To install the DB200, follow the diagrams and instructions on
the following page that match the type of installation you
need for your home. If the installation follows diagrams 1-4,
a 9 volt alkaline battery is required in the DB sensor.

Please check the switches on your DB200 Sensor before
installing. Do not change switches 1-6 these are pre set.
It’s very important that the switch settings on both units
match . See figure 1.1 on back side for settings.

DB Sensor settings, smaller unit: 1 thru 6 dip switches are
set at the factory and only need to be changed if your
neighbor has a DB200 or DB100. The 8 dip switches should
be set as follows:


1 thru 3 dip switches are set in the ON position and
4 thru 6 are set in the OFF position. If you need to
change the dip switch settings to avoid interference
with your neighbors make sure you change both the
DB200 Signaler to match the DB Sensor.


The 8


switch determines the number of flashes

when someone is at your door. In the ON position
your until will flash 5 times and in the OFF position
your unit will flash 10 times. This feature is
wonderful when you have an extra sensor for the
back door. One sensor would be set in the ON
position and the other would be set in the OFF


The 7


switch is for use when using 2 sensors, this

switch determines the settings for front or back door.
If using for one door only set this switch in the ON
position. At this setting your unit will flash at a fast
rate and will make a ding/dong sound. If using 2
sensors one for the front door and one for the back
door the setting for the 2


sensor would be in the

OFF position. In this position the front door will
flash at a different flash rate than the back door. In
the OFF position your back door sensor will flash at
a slow rate with a dong/dong sound.

Function settings:
The function switch on the back of DB sensor (smaller unit)
should be set depending on which installation application you
