User’s Guide

Before using the BuzzFinder, you should read the instructions carefully.

First, test your device by pressing the button at the bottom of the remote control. The device should make a sound.

Attach a sticker or fasten a cord to the device and place it on the desired object.

Finding an Object

Find an object by pressing the button at the bottom of the remote control. If the object onto which the sound device is attached is within range, you will hear a sound every four seconds within a 30 second span. You may repeat this action to hear the sound again. Once you have found the object, press the button at the bottom of the remote once again to stop the sound. If the object is out of range, you will hear three beeps from the remote control.

Finding a Remote Control

Find a remote control by pressing the button at the top of the remote control. If the other remote control is within range, you will hear a sound every four seconds within a 30 second span. You may repeat this action to hear the sound again. Once you have found the other remote control, press the button at the top of the remote once again to stop the sound. If the other remote control is out of range, you will hear three beeps from the remote control.

*Some factors may alter the performance of this device, such as interference between the remote control and the sound device caused by concrete walls, numerous walls, or low battery charge.

Changing the Battery

Each module comes with a battery. When you hear three consecutive beeps, it means you need to change the battery. This signal will repeat every 60 minutes. You must replace the battery if you wish to continue using your BuzzFinder.

To replace a module’s battery, you will need a screwdriver. The battery is located at the back of the device. Before opening the device, make sure you touch metal to remove any electrostatic charges from your body. Such charges may cause permanent damage to the microchip. Then, open the lid, remove the microchip, and use your screwdriver to remove the battery by taking it out of its socket. Insert a new battery in the socket, making sure the positive sign (+) is on top.

Fixing a Conflict Between Devices

Even though your BuzzFinder is programmed with unique identification, it does not mean it cannot conflict with another owner's BuzzFinder. To correct the problem, collect the two conflicting remote controls and the sound device and press both buttons on one of the remote controls simultaneously. Each module should emit a sound. This indicates that your problem is resolved.
