User notice
Please read instruction manual carefully before attempting to operate the system.
Einstein’s battery will have the longest life if left plugged in at all times. Repeated fluctuations in voltage can
damage the battery as well as the electrical components as Einstein, which may lead to permanent damage of
the system.
To fully protect your home, office, and loved ones, and get the most out of your Einstein system, consider
using a combination of all types of sensors/detectors offered (door/window, motion, gas, smoke, etc).
The self malfunction checking system is an easy way to ensure the system is properly working. It is advised to
check the system as well as smoke and gas detectors weekly to ensure efficient functioning.
If the system does not have 220 AV/DC power, the outside sirens and the built in siren will only work for a
short time, if at all.
If, for some reason, you need to dismantle the panel (ex: to connect wired sensors), NEVER touch the
receiving module or you may cause permanent damage to your Einstein system.
NEVER attempt to dismantle the Einstein unit for maintenance. If you’re having difficulty, please contact our
customer service for advice on how to proceed. They can typically walk you through problems or give you
instructions on returning the unit for maintenance.

Main components
Central Panel: Brains of the Einstein system
This 5th generation control device can be hidden anywhere
inside your home or office where a thief will never find it. It
can then wirelessly detect all sensors and respond to
messages you send it by phone, auxiliary keypad, or keyfob
switch within 250 feet. This workhorse continues to monitor
despite power outages or cut phone lines. Includes an 85db
Auxiliary Keypad: Accessibility
These inexpensive auxiliary wireless keypads are placed next
to each door you wish to enter or leave as you arm or
disarm the system, allowing access to the system if you know
the password while serving as a filter for intruders. The
central panel is the real brain of the system, so damaging
this auxiliary keypad will simply sound the alarm and begin
notification of everyone on your call list. Even with
destroyed auxiliary keypads, your Einstein home security
system will continue to scare away intruders and protect
your property
Main components
Keyfob remote controller: Portability
This handy unit allows you arm/disarm the system within
250 feet of the central panel (even through walls). This
allows you to arm/disarm the system with the push of a
button, eliminating the need for system delays. You can also
control the dialer, letting you use the system as an
emergency alert in the case of health difficulty or fire.
CAUTION: If a burglar gets his hands on this, he can gain
access to your home. Be careful not to leave it where it can
be stolen!
Wireless door & window sensors: Functionality
The most common mode of entry by burglars is through
doors, with windows being a close second! These sensors
keep intruders from opening any sliding door or window.
The invisible magnet catch inside the switch signals the main
control unit when a separation of 1.5cm occurs. These
special sensors can be placed on your safe, gun cabinet,
liquor cabinet, office filing cabinets, jewelry boxes, or
anything else you wish to secure and control access of.
Main components
Motion sensor:
Peace of mind
Motion sensors can detect if something is moving inside your
home. Einstein's state of the art PIR dual beam technology allows
your system to distinguish between a dog and a human. The
horizontal beam also helps to prevent false alarms, which are
common with motion detectors sold with less intelligent systems.
GSM cellular-dialer:
No landline? No problem! The cellular-dialer receives its wireless
instructions from the central panel, then uses its own removable
cell phone chip to contact the up to 6 numbers on your home
security team. This can include neighbors, family members, or
even a private security company of your choice. We don’t
recommend that the first contact be the police, as most
communities give low priority to automatic alarm calls and often
send a bill if there is no sign of a break-in. Instead, we
recommend calling you or someone you trust who can quickly
evaluate the danger by listening in and then place a personal call
to the authorities, if needed, to which they will actually respond in
a timely manner.
Main components
Auxiliary horn: Turn it up!
While noise may not be your friends, it’s the deadly enemy of a
burglar. Ask any law officer the best way to thwart intruders and
they’ll tell you a loud alarm at the instant your home is violated.
If you need extra sound power near the control center, the
auxiliary horn draws its power directly from the central panel.
With its 140 dB output, you can count on it to drive would be
intruders away. FYI: 120 dB is the sound of a rock concert up
close (loud enough to hurt your ears). 130 dB is 10xs that, 140 dB
is 10xs that again. We’re talking serious sound output.
Outdoor siren and strobe:
Attention drawing
This is your primary deterrent against burglary. Rainproof, coldproof, and attractive with its blue strobe light flashing every 5
seconds. You do NOT want this inside your house. It’s 160 dBas loud as a gunshot. Mount it high on an outside wall where it
will attract attention and warn anyone outside which entry has
been violated. When a siren like this sounds, a burglar can’t
think, he can’t take his time, he just wants to run and get out of
there! Also contains 72 hour back up battery in case of power
Main components
Outdoor Mega Siren: Blast it!
This is the loudest horn accessory available. It contains 2
horns, which work together for 180 dB output. Like the rest of
the horns, it connects wirelessly to the Einstein unit up to 150
feet away. It also contains a bright strobe that fires every 2
seconds while the alarm is sounding. A flashing green LED
tells you the alarm is armed and ready. It also contains a
tamper protection switch which will cause the alarm to sound
if a burglar tries to disable the alarm before breaking in.
Glass break sensor:
True genius
Breaking a window pane is not a big deal to a burglar, trained
by the old-technology alarms that rely on window switches. If
your house is equipped with one of these glass break sensors
on each bank of windows, an intruder is in for a big surprise!
Breaking glass has a unique frequency and sharpness of sound.
Whenever these wireless, battery operated sensors detect that
audio ‘fingerprint’, it will signal the Einstein’s central panel to
sound the alarm and scare the burglar away. It won’t be fooled
by thunder, airplanes, keys, or barking. Only glass breakage in
the room where the sensor sits will trigger this sensor.
Main components
Smoke detector: Looks can be deceiving
While this looks like the cheap smoke alarms that drive you
crazy when you burn bacon, think again. This wireless unit has
advanced sensors that only detect true smoke and fire
particulates. The detector then communicates with your
Einstein security system, sounding the alarm to wake up your
family and calling your list of numbers so you can call the
authorities. The smoke detector protects your house regardless
of whether the system is set or not. Mount them near where
you sleep and in family living areas, not near the kitchen.
Gas sensor:
Beyond visibility
Carbon monoxide will poison you. Natural gas can explode.
This sensor will sound the alarm wirelessly if it detects ANY
combustible or undesirable gas in your home. Set one in the
kitchen if you use natural gas, another in the bedrooms or
utility room where carbon monoxide can gather.
The Einstein Main Panel installation
Finding a location for your Einstein central panel:
#1: If mainly using remote controls to arm/disarm, place the Einstein central panel anywhere out of
the way, even in a closet
#2: If mainly using the central panel and password to arm/disarm the system, it may be more
convenient to place it somewhere that it’s easily accessible

Attach the antenna to the top of the GSM dialer and screw it on until secure
Plug the power cord into the top of the dialer and ensure the power switch is turned to on
The red power light on the front will illuminate and the system will begin searching for a signal
Plug one end of the phone cord into the phone outlet labeled 1 on top of the dialer (next to power)
Plug the other end of the phone cord into the LINE port on the back of the Einstein (far right)
Your Einstein is now set up to use the GSM dialer to call out when triggered, using the numbers
you previously programmed
DOOR/WINDOW SENSOR: This sensor consists of 2 pieces (a larger transmitter portion and a smaller
magnet portion). When installing door/window sensors, make sure the magnet is on the side of the
transmitter with the 2 LED lights. If it’s on the other side (away from LED lights), it won’t function. These
can be used on doors, windows, and cabinets. When the magnet is separated from the transmitter by 1.5cm
or more, it sends a signal to the Einstein to sound the siren and begin dialing. While the Einstein can read
signals up to 400ft away, interfering objects and walls will reduce this. To install, separate the magnet and
transmitter, peel the backing off the tape and stick in place.
MOTION SENSOR: NEVER install more than 2 motion sensors in the same room/area as this can lead to false
alarms. Also, avoid areas near vent airflow, with curtains that could move, or near fans as this can also lead to
false alarms. To install, first unscrew bottom screw from motion sensor, then unscrew middle screw from
green motherboard inside the sensor & gently pull the motherboard away from the back panel. You’ll see a
screw sized hole in the back; use the hole to attach the motion and mount together with the screw that is
already in the mounting hardware. To adjust for pets, mount it higher up so the motion doesn’t cover as
much of the floor. You can also adjust the sensitivity on the motion’s motherboard (4-8, 5-12, 9-18 meters)
via the black jumper switch.
SMOKE DETECTOR: We recommend placing one smoke detector in every room of the house, in a central
location, no closer than 2 feet from the corner. To install, unscrew the mounting plate from the back of the
smoke sensor. Use 2 screws to secure the mount to the ceiling. Screw the smoke detector onto the mount.
GAS SENSOR: To install, place one screw in a secure location. Hang sensor on the screw and plug into 110V.
WE RECOMMEND TESTING SMOKE & GAS SENSORS (by pressing the button on the sensor) ONCE PER
WEEK TO ENSURE EFFICIENCY. The gas sensor (while plugged in) can also be held under a car’s exhaust
and should sound the alarm due to the CO2 (NOTE: it takes about 3 minutes from plug in for alarm to
initialize and prepare to sound).
CAUTION: DO NOT install gas sensor outdoors, near air vents, air intakes, or exhaust fans, in areas of high
humidity. Do not use heavy amounts of spray glue, adhesives, pesticides, or diluents (ex: rubbing alcohol)
near the sensor to avoid damaging sensor components.
Install unit in a location giving it a clear path to the gas source while staying further than 4 feet from source
Controlling Einstein from your phone
Once you’ve programmed the numbers into the Einstein and connected the system to a land line or GSM dialer,
you can test the system to check its ability to call out when triggered.
To mute the system (so it doesn’t hurt your ears while you’re testing):
Hit the SET button, password (1234), #, 4, backspace, 00, #, QUICKEXIT
You’ve now turned the sirens off so you can test the system without the noise.
Now, hit the panic button on the remote control (bell key, top left)
The LED will display the first number you’ve programmed it to call.
The phone will begin ringing and the Einstein will play your 10 second pre-recorded message

Frequently asked questions:
Auto dialer not functioning: Make sure Einstein is armed, ensure security team phone numbers are
programmed into the main unit, try adjusting the distance between the sensors and the main Einstein unit (if
distance or interference is too great, system cannot communicate), make sure the ID code matches between
the sensors and the Einstein, try cutting off the power supply to Einstein then reconnecting it and searching
the GSM network (sometimes the GSM signal is bad), ensure the SIM card is current and contains minutes
Einstein won’t arm or disarm: Disarm the system, then try re-arming it (if the system is already armed and
you attempt to re-arm it, nothing will happen), read the operations section of the owner manual to ensure
proper commands are being used, if attempting to arm/disarm from the keypad make sure you enter a
password if password protection is on
Blaster siren not sounding: Sometimes problems occur with the blaster sirens due to interference between
incoming and outgoing signals at the Einstein central panel. This can be solved by applying a short arm &
disarm delay to all contacts. A delay of at 4 or more seconds has been shown to fix the blaster siren issues
caused by signal interference.
Door contact not working: Check the lower LED light. If it’s red, the contact has a low battery. You’ll need a
12V, 23A standard battery that can be found MUCH cheaper online than at your local convenience or
electronic store. FYI: contacts on entries that are the most frequently utilized as well as contacts located
further away from Einstein will likely run out of battery faster than others.
Frequently asked questions:
No voice message plays when I answer Einstein’s phone call: Ensure there is a voice message recorded in
Einstein (customizing your system)
The motion sensor is having false alarms: The motion sensor is made to detect MOTION. Make sure there
aren’t any curtains that could be moving to set it off. Pets as well as mice/rats can cause false alarms;
consider repositioning the detector so it doesn’t cover all the way to the floor. Lastly, try shortening the
detecting area or turning down the sensitivity on the sensor.
The remote controllers aren’t working: Try changing the batteries. If there appears to be rust or dirt around
the battery connection, clean that off to ensure a good connection. If this doesn’t work, you may need to
relearn the remote controls to the Einstein unit. NOTE: This will clear out ALL remotes, necessitating ALL
remotes to be present when you relearn them to the system.
The sensors aren’t communicating with Einstein: See if there is a disturbance that could be interrupting
communication. Make sure Einstien’s power cable is properly connected and try changing the battery in the
sensor. If this doesn’t work, there is a slight possibility the receiving module in the Einstein unit is
malfunctioning. Please contact us for a solution.
The siren won’t sound (silent): Make sure you haven’t muted the siren (customizing your system) and that
the system was armed before you attempted to set it off. This can also be caused by a short circuit of siren
pins or jack, a broken wire, or a bad connection. Please contact us for a solution.
