The MCT-234 is a four(4) button device allowing setting of the alarm in both 'Home' and 'Away' modes, unsetting the system, and initiation of a panic alarm. The MCT-234 is compatible with the 'Plus', 'Complete', and 'Pro' versions of the Powermax system.
When activated, each button initiates a CodeSecure™ transmission of a unique 28-bit (rolling code) ID command, selected from over 100 million possible combinations. To prevent "code grabbing" by potential intruders trying to defeat the security system, the next time the button is activated, the transmitter sends out a different CodeSecure™ ID, which is selected by a proprietary code encryption algorithm and which can be recognized only by the target receiver. It is powered by a standard alkaline battery and features visible and transmitted low battery indications when the battery needs to be replaced.
