Introduction

The Visit system consists of a number of radio transmitters and receivers. The transmitters detect  different events in the surrounding area and transmit a radio signal to the receivers. The receivers pick up this signal and provide indications using light, sound and/or vibration.

The transmitter determines what type of light, sound or vibration should be displayed so that the reason for the indication is evident. Read through the entire user manual first and then start to install the system.

Getting started

Unpacking, installing and testing the unit

  1. Open the battery cover (3). Fit one 9V battery, either a 6LR61 alkaline or 6F22 lithium type battery, and close the battery cover.
  2. Press the Test Button (2). The Door Transmitter lights up the LED (1) to indicate that the unit is transmitting a radio signal. The Visit receivers will indicate the Door Transmitter. The Door Transmitter waits until it has been quiet for two seconds in order to avoid acoustic feedback.
  3. The Door Transmitter should be placed on the wall or door no more than 3 cm from the doorbell. The door transmitter is mounted either suspended on the wall mount bracket (5) on the screw supplied or using the self-adhesive Velcro tape, see illustrations 1–3 below. If the Velcro tape is used, the wall can be cleaned using the enclosed wet wipe.

Function

General

The BE1410 Visit Door Transmitter is a radio transmitter within the Bellman Visit 868 System for indoor use, which recognises the sound emitted by a doorbell.
The door transmitter is activated by the built-in microphone, via electromagnetic fields or via a BE9199/BE9200 Bellman External Door Microphone (accessory). On delivery the Door Transmitter is set to standard detection, which is suitable for most doorbells.
The BE1410 Visit Door Transmitter is suitable for use with a doorbell which gives a clear tone without any significant and rapid variations in sound. If the doorbell is electromechanical, the Door Transmitter also detects the electromagnetic field emitted by the doorbell. It is important that the Doorbell emits a detectable sound so that the door transmitter does not misinterpret it as speech, music, a vacuum cleaner or something else one does not want the door transmitter to respond to.

If there are difficulties in getting the Door Transmitter to respond to the doorbell, a BE9199 or BE9200 Bellman External Door Microphone can be used instead of the Door Transmitter’s internal microphone.
If the current doorbell, door telephone or telephone sound is difficult to detect even with the External Door Microphone, we recommend using a different solution. Other conceivable solutions are the BE1420 Visit Pushbutton Transmitter or BE1430 Visit Telephone Transmitter.

The Pushbutton Transmitter is a transmitter that can be placed on the outside of the door and this means that a normal doorbell is not required.
The Telephone Transmitter is a multiway transmitter which can be connected electrically to an existing doorbell. This cannot be done with all doorbells, door telephones or telephones.

Using the Bellman External Door Microphone BE9199/BE9200

If the BE9199/BE9200 Bellman External Door Microphone is used, the Door Transmitter can detect the difference between the sound coming from the internal microphone and the external door microphone. Using this function, the Door Transmitter can transmit different signals depending on which microphone the sound is coming from. The External Door Microphone can, for example, be used for a doorbell with a sound that is difficult for the internal microphone to detect, a door telephone or a telephone.

Please note: Do not place the Door Transmitter too close to the External Microphone since the internal microphone may interfere with the External Microphone.

It is important for the doorbell, door telephone or telephone to emit a loud enough sound, so that other loud sounds in the vicinity do not deceive the Door Transmitter into believing that it is the doorbell, door telephone or telephone. The sensitivity of the External Door Microphone can be adjusted using the training function and this allows adjustments to be made to the doorbell, door telephone or telephone. It is important to carry out this adaptation to ensure that the Door Transmitter operates as well as possible.

Sound training

The BE 1410 Visit Door Transmitter can be sound trained from a maximum of three different sound sources. The advantages of this are mainly that the Door Transmitter will be able to give a different indication according to which sound source activates it, but also that this function will help to ensure that the Door Transmitter is only activated by the desired sound source.The Visit Door Transmitter has three training options, two for the internal microphone and one for the external microphone. The requirements for a Door Transmitter to detect a sound is that it sounds in the same way every time, that it is long enough and that it does not vary too rapidly.

Proceed as follows to program a sound:

visit door transmitter programming switch

  1. Change the Programming Switch (8) from Normal to the desired position,
    Int. Mic. 1, Int. Mic. 2 (for detection via the internal microphone) or Ext. Mic. (for detection via a Bellman External Door Microphone).
  2. Place the Door Transmitter near to the doorbell that is to be trained to it.
  3. Make sure that it is quiet.
  4. Press the Test Button (2).
  5. The LED (1) lights up yellow to indicate that the Door Transmitter is in training mode and is waiting for the sound that it is to be trained for.
  6. Activate the doorbell.
  7. The LED (1) will now blink green while the Door Transmitter analyses the sound.
  8. If the training is accepted, the LED (1) will light up green. Some sounds are difficult to analyse and therefore difficult to detect afterwards. Therefore always check to ensure that the Door Transmitter is detecting the doorbell correctly after training. If this does not work, refer to the next step.
  9. If the sound cannot be analysed, the LED (1) will light up yellow. You can try to train for the sound again by repeating steps 1 to 6. If it still does not work, the doorbell has a sound that the Door Transmitter cannot analyse. In this case try to change the doorbell sound if it has this option and then repeat steps 1 to 6. If that does not work either, test by using an External Door Microphone and then repeat steps 1 to 6.
  10. Reset the Programming Switch (8) to Normal position.
  11. The Door Transmitter is now ready to use.

If no sound is programmed with the training function, standard detection is used which works in most cases.

Resetting the trained sound

Proceed as follows to remove a trained sound:

  1. Change the Programming Switch (8) from Normal to the position to be deleted.
  2. Hold in the test button (2). The LED (1) will light up yellow.
  3. When the LED (1) lights up green, deletion is complete.
  4. Reset the Programming Switch (8) to Normal position.
  5. The Door Transmitter is now ready to use.

If you wish to use standard detection for incoming sound via the internal microphone, both Int. Mic. 1 and Int. Mic. 2 must be deleted.

Radio key

On delivery all Bellman Visit units are tuned to the same Radio Key. If you have a neighbour with a similar system, you can change to different Radio Keys so that you do not affect each other’s systems. All units in a system must have the same Radio Key.

If you use the Radio Key Switch (7) to change the Radio Key on this transmitter, you must also change all other units in your Bellman Visit System to the same Radio Key. Refer to the user manual for the relevant unit.

All Bellman Visit products within the same system must be tuned to the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group.

Indicators and Signals

System indicators

When the LED (1) lights up, the Door Transmitter transmits radio signals.

Power supply

When the Door Transmitter is activated, the LED (1) normally lights up green. This means that the battery is in good condition.

If the LED (1) lights up yellow, this means that the battery is flat and must be changed. Only use a 6LR61 (alkaline) or 6F22 (lithium) type battery.

Fault warning

The LED (1) flashes yellow when the Door Transmitter is exposed to high noise levels or an electromagnetic field for longer than 15 seconds. If the LED blinks even when there is no noise, the reasons may be:

  • It is located in a constant electromagnetic field.
  • The microphone fitted in the external microphone socket (9) is faulty.

Troubleshooting in brief

PROBLEM SOLUTION
Nothing happens when the transmitter is activated with the test button(2).
  • The Door Transmitter waits until it has been quiet for two seconds in order to avoid acoustic feedback. Try again.
