How to Guide – Visonic

Easily Enrol and Unenroll Your MCT-234 or MCT-237 Remote Keyfob in Minutes. This guide will take you through the basic steps to help you along the way.

The Visonic Powermax range of wireless alarms can be set and unset with a touch of a button using a wireless key-fob.  Two key-fobs are available – the four-button one-way model (MCT-234) and the six-button model (MCT-237).

The Visonic Powermax supports up to eight keyfobs which can be enrolled onto the control panel. The wireless range of the key-fobs is approximately 20 metres (Line of Sight).  The MCT-234 can be used to set the alarm in Home or Away mode, unset the alarm or initiate a Panic alarm.  It also has an Auxiliary button that can be programmed to perform various functions such as opening a motorised garage door.

The MCT-237 has differences to the MCT-234 in that it has an LCD display that displays information sent from the control panel and that it can also be used to arm/disarm partitions if needed.
