How to Change Your Guardline’s Alarm, Chime, or Melody

Changing your wireless driveway alarm is very simple. Now that you’ve chosen your preferred chime or melody, you need both your sensor and receiver to follow these instructions:

  1. Place the sensor several feet away from you. Make sure that it is facing a wall so it will not activate too early. 
  2. Hold the “Learn” button on your receiver down for about three seconds or until Zone 1 starts flashing. Release the “Learn” button. Note: If your sensor is paired to a different zone, press the “Learn” button again to advance to the next zone.
  3. Press the “Melody” button on the receiver until you hear your preferred melody or chime. 
  4. With Zone 1 still flashing, wave your hand in front of the sensor to activate it. A double-beep will alert you that the melody has been changed. 
  5. Turn your receiver off before turning it back on using the switch on the side. 
  6. Activate your sensor one more time to make sure that your new alarm has been set.
