I bought a Daewoo Emergency phone for my mother in law. I know old as the hills, but it was new held in storage. Everything seems to work Ok, except when I want to pair the remote. The manual is not quite as helpful as it may seem. The idea is that you press function and can program a variety of things, followed by a number. The function and number to pair a remote is 8.

But in the manual for the pairing you are supposed to first press or enter "pir on/off" first. But there does not appear to be such a key or pin etc. You could say the remote should be pressed on, but it is always on anyway. Also there would be no good reason to press the remore first as ut is paured anyway. Does any one have ir used one of these before.

How many buttons does the remote have?
Assuming it's an emergency remote I would guess it just has one button?
Do they just mean to press that perhaps?

No I tried that. Even kept it held down during the whole process. There are rwo keys on the remote, emg for activation and cancel to cancel an activation. Its the pir on/off that gets me. Also used to match up the optional door guard, which I presume may have an on off switch.

It would sound like PIR/ON should be the emergency button and PIR/OFF should be cancel then.
