Mirage Amplifier Doorbell Preset Wiring
Both the M-400 and M-800 series amplifiers offer a doorbell feature. With this feature a preset doorbell sound can be played out of a select group of zones or all the zones in the system by triggered contact closure.
The type of doorbell sound, volume level and zones will be configured under the doorbell tab on the amplifier web configuration page.
WARNING: Navigating to the doorbell tab will cause the doorbell preset sound to play out of the amplifier, this sound may be really loud and cause damage to your speakers. It is recommended that you do not navigate to the doorbell page without first disconnecting the speakers!
The doorbell is triggered by applying a 12 volt signal to P1 or P2 respectively, P1 will trigger the doorbell sound in all zones while P2 will trigger the doorbell sound in zones selected in the configuration page. The doorbell will sound once voltage is applied then removed, allowing the doorbell function to operate in both a normally open or a normally closed trigger configuration.
Normally open configuration (30 seconds of source mute):
Once the circuit is closed the currently playing audio source will mute for 30 seconds and doorbell sound will be heard.
(If muting the source audio for 30 seconds is undesirable it is recommended that you use the Normally closed configuration and a relay device that will convert the normally open circuit to a normally closed circuit (see illustration B)
(Illustration A. Normally open or Normally closed with no light)
Illustration B. Normally closed using relay and no 30 second delay, no light)
