The Base Station is the component of the Safety Turtle wireless alert system which sounds the alarm. All Safety Turtle wireless systems require at least one base station. Safety Turtle sensors have no audible or visual outputs, so they serve no useful function without a Base Station. There is no limit to the number of sensors/sensor types of the same color that can work with one Base Station. In the first case, Base Stations alarm in unison only when the sensor is activated where coverage overlaps. In the second case, the coverage areas are nominally the same and the Base Stations are intended to alarm in unison.

Additional Base Station(s) spaced apart:

Increase the total sensor coverage area, and/or expand the area of alarm audibility.

• Includes AC adaptor and user guide (English and Spanish)

More information about the base station:

• Two models of base station: standard and integrator
• Not weather proof
• Requires AC or external 12V battery input
• Requires a baby Turtle plug of matching color that comes with Safety Turtle sensor
• One button and two LEDs control and indicate status of base station

How it works:

• Base station set to "ACTIVE" flashes and alarms @ 110 decibels until acknowledged or for 30 minutes
• Base station set to "TEST" beeps slowly if sensor battery is healthy and while sensor signal is received
• Volume is adjustable in "TEST" but not in "ACTIVE"
• Rapid beeping occurs in "FAULT".  The cause of the fault is indicated by LEDs
• Only the Integrator Base Station has the following additional feature: audio jack outputs alarm condition [contact closure]
• An Integrator Base Station is always required in a commercial/extended range system
• The coverage radius of the Base Station [both Standard and Integrator types] is limited by its [internal] antenna

***The coverage radius of the Base Station [both Standard and Integrator types] is limited by its [internal] antenna. Longer range Base Stations with external antennas are available as customized items:

• Omni directional whip antenna provides 1,300 ft. [400 m.] coverage in all directions
• Flat plate antenna provides 4,000 ft. [1,200 m.] coverage over 100 degree beamwidth
