INSTEON Alert Module
The INSTEON Alert Module emits a loud sound, which is useful when one wants audio notifications. When the module is on, it makes a sound; when it's off, it's quiet. Using a button on the case, one can select different alerts (different tones and cadences).
Alert Module Device Description
The Alert Module Device has an input terminal (1) for turning the module on and off, and an output status terminal (1S), which shows the state of the module. If the "1" terminal is on, the module makes a sound. If the "1" terminal is off, the module is quiet.
Generally, the "1S" status output will track the state of the "1" terminal. If the module malfunctions or is out of INSTEON range, the "1S" terminal will not track the "1" terminal. The "1S" terminal is useful when one needs to know the actual state of the module.
