The S-1 Siren can only be used with the Hercules Shield. Batteries should be replaced every 5 years or after 10 hours of cumulative, active alarming. To ensure comparable lifespan and performance, replacement batteries should be high quality alkaline batteries, similar to the ones originally supplied.
|S-1 Siren (batteries included/installed)||S-1 Cable (CAB S-1)||Magnets 2x||Velcro Adhesive Strips (3” x 1.5”)|
1. Log in to the Hercules Portal, select the Hercules Shield from the device list, and click the security tab.
2. Click the Disarm button and select 1 hour delay. This will disarm the Shield for 1 hour. At the end of the installation you will manually arm the Shield.
WARNING: Failure to disarm the Hercules Shield before connecting the S-1 Siren will sound its alarm. The Hercules Shield must be powered in order to disarm.
3. Connect the white, female, 3 PIN connector of the S-1 Cable to the S-1 Siren’s power port.
4. Connect the white, male, 3 PIN connector of the S-1 Siren Cable to the available white, female, 3 PIN connector of the Hercules Shield’s Interface Cable, matching black → black, green/blue → blue, and red/yellow → orange.
For ease of installation, both connector ends feature a piece of blue shrink wrap. The unused white, female, 3 PIN connector, with yellow, blue, and black wires, and blue shrink wrap, that is pigtailed off of the main Siren Cable may be used to support auxiliary devices in the future such as a temperature or humidity sensor.
5. The siren has two holes in the top of the unit. One or both of these speaker holes should be placed inline with a hole/s in the upper cabinet of the ATM so the sound can properly escape. Attach either the magnets (preferred) or the velcro tabs to the siren on the side with the speaker holes, then attach the unit to the cabinet with the holes aligned with a cabinet hole/s.
6. Log into the Hercules portal and select the Security tab for the Hercules Shield. You will now see the Siren connected to the Shield and you can begin testing the device.
7. Click the "Chirp Siren" button to test the siren. This will chirp the siren once for 100ms. This is the sound it will make when a tilt event / power cut / or door open warning occurs.
8. To test the sound of the siren fully alarming you can click the "Turn Siren On" button. You will see the siren status change to Siren Alarming and the icon will be animated. The siren will begin to alarm and you can then stop it by selecting the "Turn Siren Off" button. After a moment, the siren will then stop and return to its original state.
9. You can now click the "ARM" button in the top right to arm the Shield. The siren will now activate when a tamper or theft event is detected. When armed the security status will appear with a locked symbol again.

*If you unplug the siren, it will trigger the tamper state. The siren will not sound once it’s disconnected but it will sound if plugged back in as the tamper has been triggered.
If you wait 15 minutes to plug it back in it will not sound.
*Sending arm/disarm/snooze/ or tamper reset is the only way to manually reset the tamper state. In all other cases the siren will reset once the alarm period has ended and no further tamper events are detected.
*You can temporarily disarm the Shield over SMS if you respond to the text message sent with the disarm code. You must have sms notifications enabled on your user account to receive these.
