Livi US universal sensor manual

Description
The Livi US universal sensor (hereafter referred to as the sensor) is designed to integrate any security, fire, emergency or technological sensors into the Livicom system.

One sensor can be connected to two wired or standalone sensors with a wired voltage free alarm output. For example, the sensor can be connected to third-party outdoor security sensors, gas leakage sensors, threshold pressure sensors, level sensors, etc.

The sensor switches to the alarm mode when one of the connected sensors goes into alarm:
  1. The sensor indicator blinks red once;
  2. The sensor sends an alert to the Livi Smart Hub (hereafter referred to as the hub).

The Livicom app provides flexible settings for each input of the device: the user can specify types for connected sensors and enable / disable inversion in order to determine the normal state of connected sensors (NC contact or NO contact).

Choosing a location for the sensor
When choosing the place for the device keep in mind that the length of wires between the device and connected sensors cannot exceed 3 m. We recommend placing wires away from sources of strong electromagnetic radiation in order to prevent false alarms from connected sensors.
    DO NOT install the sensor outdoors, in places with high humidity, or at temperatures exceeding the operating temperature range (see "Specifications").
    Sensor installation
    The sensor must be unpacked and allowed to reach room temperature for at least two hours before handling if it was transported or stored at low temperatures.
    1. Press one of the latches on the short side of the enclosure using a flat-blade screwdriver.
    2. Pull the lid up while pressing the latch.

      4. Fasten the base of the sensor enclosure at the selected location using a supplied mounting kit.
        5. Break one of the plugs (4) in the device enclosure to make an opening for connected wires.
          Binding to the hub
          Only the owner of the site can bind the sensor to the hub. Make sure that the site guard is disabled and the hub is online.
          Follow these steps to bind the sensor to the hub:

          1. Open the sensor enclosure (if it has been closed).

          2. Pull the protective film out of the battery compartment.

          The sensor indicator will start blinking blue once the sensor is switched to the binding mode.
          Женщина-диспетчер ПЦН
          3. In the Livicom app, open the "Devices" screen. In the upper right corner of the screen tap "+" and select "Add Device".

          The system compiles a list of radio devices available for binding within the range of the hub radio channel.

          4. Select the sensor from the list and check that its name and serial number in the app match the data on the sensor enclosure.

          5. Tap CONTINUE and follow on-screen instructions in the app to bind the sensor to the hub.

          The sensor indicator will blink green 5 times after successful binding.
          Женщина-диспетчер ПЦН
          The sensor switches to the binding mode only for 60 seconds. If you have not bound it to the hub within this period, remove the battery from the sensor for 30 seconds, and reinstall it (observing polarity). The sensor will switch to binding mode again.
          You should specify the type for the wired sensor connected to the input "A" of the universal sensor. Select on of the following types:

          • Guard - for security sensors that will be part of the security alarm system of the site. If the security sensor is triggered, an alarm alert "Alarm! Intrusion detected" will be sent to the hub (only if the guard of the site is enabled).

          • Fire - for fire detectors with a wired dry contact (voltage-free) alarm output. The fire sensor will perform guarding functions around the clock (even when the guard of the site is disabled). If the fire sensor is triggered, an alarm alert "Alarm! Smoke detected" will be sent to the hub.

          • Emergency - for sensors that will be part of the emergency alarm system of the site. These sensors will perform guarding functions around the clock (even when the guard of the site is disabled). If such sensor is triggered, an alarm alert "Emergency sensor alarm" will be sent to the hub. Select this type for water leak sensors, gas leak sensors, etc.

          • Auxiliary - for sensors that will be part of the technological alarm system of the site. These sensors will perform guarding functions around the clock (even when the guard of the site is disabled). If such sensor is triggered, a non-alarm message "Auxiliary sensor alarm" will be sent to the hub.
          Женщина-диспетчер ПЦН
          Then you should specify the type for the second wired sensor connected to the input "B" of the universal sensor.

          Evaluating signal strength
          Check the quality of the connection between the sensor and the hub at the intended location of the sensor.

          There are two ways to evaluate the signal strength:

          1. In the Livicom app, on the sensor settings screen.
          2. With the help of the LED indication on the sensor. Double-click on the tamper button and look at the sensor indicator. Interpret the indication using the table below.
          Good signal The indicator blinks green 3 times
          Average signal The indicator blinks green 2 times
          Poor signal The indicator blinks green once
          No connection The indicator blinks red 4 times
          Checking the sensor operation
          Check the operation of the sensor after its installation. Make sure that the sensor indication matches the information in the table "LED indication" when connected sensors go into alarm and recover after that.

          Contact technical support (mail to: support@livicom.ru) if you see an incorrect indication or do not receive the alerts.

                    Operational parameters
                    • Radio signal strength between the sensor and the hub (no connection / poor / average / good):
                    If there is no connection with the hub, check whether the hub is turned on. If the hub is off, turn the hub on and again check the signal strength on the sensor settings screen. Then check whether there are any objects obstructing radio signal (for example, metal objects or mirrors) between the hub and the sensor. Change the sensor installation location so that radio signal could pass between devices without obstructions.

                    Check whether the sensor is installed within radio signal range of the hub. If the sensor is installed too far from the hub, move it to a new place where connection between the sensor and the hub will be restored.

                    • Battery status (OK / low battery).
                    If the battery runs out, you will receive the push notification. The notification will also be displayed in the event log in the app and on the sensor settings screen.

                    • Enclosure status (open / closed).
                    Operational settings for guarding sensors
                    Only the owner of the site can change settings for the sensor. Make sure that the site guard is disabled and the hub is online.
                    • Delay for entry / exit - slide the switch to the right if the sensor is mounted in the entrance area of the site AND the site guard is controlled by the Livi RFID security control panel.

                    • Night guard - slide the switch to the right if the sensor should be switched to the guarding mode when the night guard is enabled.

                    • Inversion - this parameter allows you to change the normal state of the connected sensor (NO or NC). Slide the switch to the right to enable inversion.
                    Changing type or name of the connected wired sensor
                    Only the owner of the site can make changes. Make sure that the site guard is disabled and the hub is online before saving changes.
