Tech Tip
Changing Door Prop Times

Note: The device first needs to be handed  according to installation instruction, then proceed with the following steps. (EAX-300 shown)

Step 1: Remove battery.

Step 2: With both micro switches closed, reconnect the battery. The flashing of the LEDs will indicate the current selection of door prop time (see Table B).

Step 3: Release both switches. The switch on the left (OKC switch) changes the programming. Pushing this switch will change the setting incrementally according to Table B. Once the desired time is selected, wait 15 seconds for the unit to flash the selection three times. The timing has successfully been changed upon hearing the siren chip four times. The new timing is retained in memory even with battery removal.
