When the FTQ module receives an RF signal from one of up to four learned Small Remote buttons, it will display the following icons in the upper left corner of the screen above the wireless strength icon:


"B" -  will blink if it is learned for the Blue <<BWD Button

"G" - will blink if it is learned for the Green FWD>> Button

"1" - will blink if it is learned for the ALT1 function

"2" - will blink if it is learned for the ALT2 function

"X" - will blink if it detects a 433Mhz signal that is not learned by the module



Learning the Small Remote


Before using the Small Remote, the The FTQ module needs to learn the RF codes from the Small Remote before this functionality is operational. 


If the FTQ module ha already learned the RF codes for a Small Remote and the user wants to remove that learning, the FTQ learning will need to be Reset.  


If the FTQ module ha already learned the RF codes for a Small Remote, but the user wants the FTQ module to learn the codes of a different Small Remote, the FTQ learning will need to be Reset and then the new Remote can be learned by the module.  


The following two subsections walk through steps for both scenarios.   



Note:  The FTQ module also has settings that allows the user to enable or disable the Small Remote function and also enable or disable arming with the Small Remote.  



Note:  For safety reasons, if the Small Remote is to be used with the module, even if it is already learned, ever time the module is powered you must go into the Small Remote Status by pressing a button on the learned Small Remote and select OK by pressing green FWD >> on the module. 



New Learning of a Small Remote


Power on the FTQ module.  Within 30 seconds of the module going into TEST or SafeMode state press and hold any button on the Small Remote.  If it is recognized, the module will go into a leaning function, and if it is not currently Learned to a Small Remote, the screen will state the following: 


SMALL REMOTE LEARN

<< BLUE     GREEN>>: NP

ALT 1: NP             ALT 2:NP

<< CANCEL             OK >>



“<< BLUE”  will be flashing on the screen waiting for you to press a button on the remote that it will learn for the blue <<BWD Operational Button of the module.  Press and hold the chosen button on the Small Remote until it says << BLUE: OK.  Confirm that the OK is not blinking on the screen after you stop pressing the button.  The small remote has been learned for the blue << BWD Operational Button of the module.


Next, the “GREEN >>” will start flashing on the screen waiting for you to press the next button on the remote that it will learn for the green FWD >> Operational Button of the module.   The process is the same as you select the button on the Small Remote to learn for the green FWD >> Button.    


If the Small Remote has only two buttons or only two buttons are being learned, the process stops here by pressing and holding  the green FWD >> Button on the module for OK.  


However, if there is a 4-button remote, this process can continue for ALT 1 and ALT 2 in the same manner.  

When complete, press and hold the green FWD >> Button on the module for OK.  At any time, you can press the blue << BWD button to restart the learning sequence and if it is pressed a second time, it will exit out of the Learning function.   


If a function is not synced to small Remote, it will show NP next to the function for Not Programmed.  


Note:  If you have exited out of the learning function, you will need to restart the remote before going into the learning function again. 


Note:  The system can learn 4 buttons on a Small Remote for blue << BWD, green FWD >>, ALT 1, and ALT 2, but it does not have to learn all four.   If a Small Remote has less than 4 buttons, you can choose how it can be learned to the module. 



Resetting the Learning of a Small Remote 


If the module has already learned the RF codes of a Small Remote and a Small Remote button is held down right after the module goes into TEST or SafeMode, the module will go into the Small Remote Status on the screen:




The OK next to each function indicates a remote is learned to that function.  For example, in the figure above, the OK next to "GREEN>>" indicates that the FTQ module has learned the RF codes for a Small Remote Button and synced them with the green FWD>> operational button on the panel. 


If a function is not synced to small Remote, it will show NP next to the function for Not Programmed.  


This setting can be accepted by selecting OK by pressing the green FWD >> button or the learning can be reset by pressing the blue << BWD button. 


Pressing reset will take go back to the Small Remote Learning Function described above and the FTQ module can learn new RF codes and sync them to the four functions as described above  or it can be cancelling the learning will exit with no learning - essentially erasing any prior learning of the Small Remote.


Note:  If you have exited out of the learning function, you will need to restart the remote before going into the learning function again. 



Confirming the Learning of a Small Remote


If the Small Remote is to be used with the module, even if it is already learned, every time the module is powered you must go into the Small Remote Status and Confirm the remote.  This process is similar to Resetting the learning of a Small Remote.  


Hold down a Small Remote button right after the module goes into TEST or SafeMode, the module will go into the Small Remote Status on the screen:


SMALL REMOTE STATUS

<< BLUE: OK     GREEN>>: OK

ALT 1: NP                  ALT 2:NP

<< RESET                      OK >>


If the module is already learned to a Small Remote, there will be an “OK” next to each of the learning options.   If it is not learned, there will be an NP shown (Not Programmed).  


To verify that the Small Remote that is present is learned for the shown options, press the button on the Small Remote that corresponds with the learned option and the OK should Blink to indicate it is learned to that button.  You will also see a B, G, 1, or 2 shown above the wireless strength icon.   If you see an X, that button is not programmed to the module.


Note:  It is possible to have Small Remote Learned by the FTQ module, but an X appears above the wireless strength icon.  This could happen for example if there is a 4-button remote used, but only 2-buttons are learned.  And X would be shown for the 3rd and 4th button because they are not learned by the FTQ module. 


If you are satisfied with the current learning accept this by pressing the green FWD >> button  on the module for OK


If the learning is not correct, needs to be deleted, or a new remote needs to be learned, press the blue << BWD button to Reset the learning. 


Pressing reset will take go back to the Small Remote Learning Function described above and the FTQ module can learn new RF codes and sync them to the four functions as described above  or it can be cancelling the learning will exit with no learning - essentially erasing any prior learning of the Small Remote.


Note:  If you have exited out of the learning function, you will need to restart the remote before going into the learning function again.
