    I can't remember how to set the night mode and have left the manual at home:Doh:
    My efforts to set it the last two nights have resulted in us waking up all the neighbors so I want to do it right tonight.
    Anybody know how to do it?

    I've just had a look on the internet for you and found a pdf document which said the following:

    This is the link to the pdf:

    Thanks for that. I've got the printed version of that document with me, but it's the sales document and not the user manual:Sad:
    There are two buttons on the fob and I think you have to press one of them twice. So far each time Ive tried it I've set the alarm off so I'm not mr popular round here :Eeek:

    Hi Mike
    I did the same the first time I set it and had to read up.
    Press the front button to set. Then after a few seconds press again. Then once more. Leave a few seconds between each press and the lights flash each time.
    The first time I did it I was stood outside to check it flashed then went inside.
    Good luck and see you in morocco

    Thanks for all the replies.
    Yet again Funsters come up trumps with help when needed. :thumb::thumb:
    I have written the instructions on an adhesive label as a permanent reminder.
    Now if I could just remember where I stuck the label.......:Doh:
    As some of you know I suffer from a condition called CRS
    (Can't remember shit)

    Don't forget Mike, if you get in a panic push the big button, then panic trying to stop it, :Laughing: it will only stop if you push it again. :Doh:

    If you are going to set it off and piss people off always do it in the middle of the night/early hours for maximum effect.:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Best place to put any of these types of instructions that you are likely to need fairly often, is on a label stuck to the inside of the wardrobe door! That's where I have put my heater control info.:thumb:
