  • LED indicator on controller unit (CU3) HW version: 64 to newest
  • During normal operation a green diode blinks with a period of a couple of seconds. If the diode blinks rapidly this may indicate too low voltage.

    During activity on the communication line a red/orange diode blinks. The frequency is affected by the number of units communicating on the same communcation line.

    Two green diodes blink whenever the microphone has detected a sound. One with a short blink and one with a longer blink. (Diodes may be red/orange)
