Part 1




The device AlarmPro-AP-RV1 is designed to be used as a remote control, for monitoring and notification. The device can be controlled remotely over the internet by using a computer or a smart phone (phone, tablet). The data produced in the process of monitoring is saved on a cloud server and used for notifications if configured by the user.

Monitoring the logging events requires the device to be added to a registered user profile on the web application:  

The notifications are only available if the user has been registered and has registered at least one device on the cloud server. Possible ways to get notified:

·         If Internet access is available – using the specialized application available on Google Play Store and App Store

·         If Internet access is unavailable, but mobile phone network is available – text / SMS. This type of notification requires the purchase of packet of text / SMS messages from within the web application. For more information you can visit the link below:

Note: to be able to successfully receive notifications over the internet on your mobile device it is required to have Internet access on that specific mobile device – Mobile Data or Wi-Fi.

Wiring Diagram

Device is designed to use external power supply. The power supply should provide power 8 - 15V / 500mA.


Generic wiring diagram:

WiseHome AlarmPro General Wiring Diagram


Wiring to interact with an alarm:

AlarmPro connection variant 1

AlarmPro connection variant 2


Note: If the same power supply is being used for other devices, make sure that the additional power consumption of the device will not exceed its operating parameters!



Given the fact that the device communicates over a wireless network, it must be installed away from electromagnetic radiation sources (such as transformers, pulse power modules, high voltage cables, permanent magnets, etc.) and away from massive metallic objects to ensure a stable connection.


The device is attached to a flat and clean surface with the mount tape provided with the product.


Part 3



Power on the Device for the First Time

Final checklist before power up

Before turning on the power supply check if the device has been mounted and connected correctly!

Connect the power supply

The device is designed for uninterrupted mode of operation. To prevent the device from being easily disconnected negligently or maliciously, a power switch is not provided. The power supply should be controlled by the existing external power module.


Operating Modes

AP mode (Access Point)

This is the mode in which each new device or any device on which the factory settings have been restored after a “factory reset”. The device acts as an access point and creates a wireless network with a name of the "SmartHome XXXXXX" type, where XXXXXX is the serial number of the device.

AP-STA mode (Access Point - Station)

The device is in this mode when it has already scanned for wireless networks, but is not yet connected to any of them.

STA mode (Station)

This is the mode in which each configured and connected to a wireless network device works. The device is configured as a wireless client and is no longer visible on the wireless network list. The device receives an IP address automatically via DHCP from the router (that manages this wireless network) and accesses the Internet through it.


Access to Device for Initial Configuration

To access the device in its AP and AP-STA mode, you need a computer or smart device with a wireless network with up-to-date browser (such as IE, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or any compatible). Turn on the device and open the list of wireless networks on your computer or smart device:

 Access to Device for Initial Configuration

Select the devices wireless network "SmartHome XXXXXX" and click Connect. After successful connection, open a web browser and connect to You will see this panel:

Input settings:

AlarmPro Device Menu IO Input Config

The field values of Input-X, Input-X-Idle, Input-X-Active will be saved on the server and used across all the applications to remind you of the input's functionality.

Input-X – with default value of inputX, where X is the sequential input number. The purpose of this field is to remind you of what the specific Input-X functions as.

Input-X-Idle – with default value of off, where X is the sequential input number. The purpose of this field is to name the idle state of the respective Input-X. In Normal mode the input will change to this state when the PGMX input (e.g. for Input-1 - PGM1) is being supplied with voltage of 8-15VDC. In Trigger mode the input will swap to this state from Input-X-Active state upon receiving an impulse on the PGMX input.

Input-X-Active – with default value of on, where X is the sequential input number. The purpose of this field is to name the active state of the respective Input-X. In Normal mode the input will change to this state when the PGMX input (e.g. for Input-1 - PGM1) is being supplied with voltage of 0VDC. In Trigger mode the input will swap to this state from Input-X-Idle state upon receiving an impulse on the PGMX input.

Delay in ms – with default value of 100ms, the field indicates the pulse duration at which the input will detect a logical level change in milliseconds - used for interference prevention.

Input modes – determinate how the respective input would function:

·         Normal - the input state of the Input-X changes as the PGMX input voltage changes with a delay - Delay in ms.  

·         Trigger – the Input-X swaps between states when PGMX input receives an impulse of 0VDC with a delay - Delay in ms.

Output settings:

AlarmPro Device Menu IO Output Config

The field values of Output-X, Output -X-Idle, Output -X-Active will be saved on the server and used across all the applications to remind you of the output's functionality.

Output-X – with default value of outputX, where X is the sequential output number. The purpose of this field is to remind you of what the specific Output-X functions as.

Output-X-Idle – with default value of off, where X is the sequential output number. The purpose of this field is to name the idle state of the respective Output-X. In Normal mode the output will change to this state when a command event to turn off is received. In KeySwitch mode the output will stay in this state indefinitely until a trigger command is received.

Output-X-Active with default value of on, where X is the sequential output number. The purpose of this field is to name the active state of the respective Output-X. In Normal mode the output will change to this state when a command event to turn on the output is received. While in KeySwitch mode it is only changes to this state for Delay of ms.

Output relay contact states:





Normal open (N.O.)



Normal close (N.C.)



Delay in ms – with default value of 100ms, the duration of the output pulse. Used only for KeySwitch mode.

Output mode – determinate how the respective output would function.

·         Normal – received command event will change the current state indefinitely until a command to swap the current state of the output is received.

·         KeySwitch – the output is turned on for a specific amount of time in ms - Delay in ms.

The device will attempt to connect to the desired wireless network using your credentials. During this attempt you should see load information about the connection process.

3.1.    If the connection has failed – make sure your credentials (SSID and password) are correct and try again.

3.2.    On successful connection your browser’s URL change to the new IP address. If your computer/smartphone/tablet do not connect automatically to this wireless network your browser informs you that there is no connection. In this case manually connect to this wireless network, that you just connected the device to and refresh the page.

Note: If for any reason the connection was unsuccessful you will be returned back to the WiFi menu.

4.       Log in the device again
