GE 45117 Personal Security Deluxe Door Alarm

Low Battery Indicator

The alarm unit has a low battery circuit. When the batteries reach a low level, the indicator light will flash slowly. Average battery life for typical usage is up to one year.


The keypad controlled door alarm requires three (3) AAA Alkaline batteries (not included).

To install the batteries:

  1.  Remove screw from battery compartment door located on back of the unit. Slide off the door in the direction of the arrow.
  2.  Insert three (3) AAA batteries noting the polarity diagram inside the battery compartment.
  3.  Replace door and secure screw.


The keypad allows you to set a personal 4- digit code for arming and disarming the alarm.

  1.  Remove screw from battery compartment door located on back of the unit. Slide off the door in the direction of the arrow.
  2. Press the LEARN button.
  3. The red light on the front of the alarm will blink for 15 seconds. During this time, input your 4-digit code. A beep will confirm each input. The unit will flash a green light 3 times to confirm the new 4-digit code has been saved.
  4.  Replace cover and secure screw.


  1.  Select desired location for alarm. The alarm is designed to mount to the door frame or to the door itself. Use either the provided screws (for permanent mounting) or double-sided tape (for temporary mounting). The recommended location is the back of the door, with the magnet mounted to the door frame. Mounting the alarm to the door ensures that the alarm will not be damaged by opening and closing the door.
    Note that the magnet may be mounted to either side of the alarm as long as the arrows line up.
    IMPORTANT: Whether mounting to the door or door frame, the gap distance between the alarm and magnet must be 1/2” or less.
  2. Attach the mounting plate to the back of the alarm. Peel the protective covering from one side of the double-sided tape and then apply to mounting plate. Remove protective covering from the back side of the double-sided tape and lightly mount the alarm in the desired position. Make sure the surface you are mounting to is clean and dry. For best results, clean the mounting surface with a mixture of 50% isopropyl alcohol and 50% water.
    Do not apply firm pressure until location is final.
    NOTE: When mounting to a door frame, the mounting plate mounts off-center to the left or right in order to position alarm closest to the edge of the door.
  3. Using double-sided tape, lightly attach the magnet to the opposite edge next to the alarm. Line up the arrows of the alarm and the magnet. Ensure the distance between the two pieces is 1/2” or less. To test the gap distance, slide the ALARM/CHIME switch to CHIME and open the door. If chime sounds, then the gap distance is correct. If it does not sound, move either the alarm or magnet closer so that gap distance is 1/2” or less.
  4.  Once you have confirmed the correct positioning of the magnet and alarm, lift the alarm off the mounting plate and apply firm pressure directly to the plate itself. Once secured, reattach the alarm to the mounting plate.
  5. Apply firm pressure to the magnet to secure its position as well.


  1.  Locate ALARM/CHIME switch on right side of the alarm unit.
  2.  Slide switch to ALARM position.
  3.  Choose HOME or AWAY on the left side of the alarm unit.

In HOME mode, the alarm will sound when the gap between the alarm and the magnet is greater than 1/2” (i.e. the door is opened).

In AWAY mode, there will be a 45 second exit delay before the unit is armed. The alarm’s indicator light will flash red quickly, alerting you that the unit has been activated and has begun the 45-second count down. The delay allows time for you to leave the protected area without triggering the alarm. When returning to the protected area, there is a 30 second delay to allow time to enter 4-digit code before the alarm will sound.

Arming the Alarm:

Arm the alarm by pressing your 4-digit code. When the 4 digit code is entered correctly the unit will flash a green light once. NOTE: if the 4 digit code is entered incorrectly, the unit will sound a higher tone and flash red 3 times.
Disarming the Alarm:

  1.  Enter your 4-digit code to disarm the alarm. When the fourth digit of your code is entered, the unit will respond with two tones and will flash a green light twice.
  2.  Enter the correct code anytime after the alarm has sounded to deactivate. NOTE: When testing, a cloth can be used to cover the alarm to reduce risk of hearing damage.

Incorrect Code
If an incorrect code is entered, the unit will sound a louder beep and will flash red 3 times. Re-enter the correct code after the light stops flashing.


  1.  Locate ALARM/CHIME switch on right side of unit.
  2.  Slide switch to CHIME mode.

Activating the Chime:
The chime will now sound immediately if the distance between the alarm and magnet is greater than 1/2” (i.e. the door is opened).

Deactivating the Chime:
To deactivate the chime slide ALARM/ CHIME switch to ALARM position.


To clean the alarm housing, use a soft cloth slightly dampened with water and wipe dry. Do not use chemical agents as this may damage and discolor the unit.
