The BATM3 offers more versatility in locating your Alarm. Here’s our suggestions.
Cable management bar:
Placing the alarm under this ledge is probably the fastest way, but the alarm is quite far away from the expected location of a physical attack, so the alarm sensor may not trip.
To install it there, use the 7mm hex nut driver (included with the BATM accessories) and completely unscrew the nuts that hold the ledge.
Once the nut is removed (don’t lose it), the ledge can be pulled away from the side of the BATM3 and the alarm plate can be slipped under it. Push the ledge back onto the screen - this could require some force. Replace the nut on the screw and tighten it.
Outside Inner Door:
This is probably the best location to place your alarm in a BATM3. It is near any expected hit, so tripping it should not be a problem. On the other hand, an alarm placed on the inside door is more prone to trigger false alarms if you roughly open or close the door.
Placing the alarm in the correct position will take some time and effort.
Please make sure you placed the alarm properly (see pictures). Check that you are able to close and open both doors properly before you finalize the mount!
You can use double sided tape (not included) to fasten the alarm to the door. Please use quality tape, since the surface of the BATM3 is coated and the alarm could be damaged if it falls off during an attempted robbery. We don’t recommend tape.
We suggest you modify your BATM3. Use the attached drilling template to drill two holes (⌀4 - ⌀5) into the door, so you can screw your alarm to that door. You can use the supplied screws and nuts (see BATM2 alarm installation instructions) to install your alarm with the tools included with the BATM3.
Inside Outer Door:
As with the inside door, the outer door will also be a good trigger point, but you’ll have to either use double sided tape to install the alarm or live with exposed screws on the outside of your BATM.
Please make sure you placed the alarm properly (as shown).
Check that you are able to close and open all doors properly.
Connecting USB power cable to motherboard
Once you’ve fastened the alarm, connect the USB cable to the alarm. An adapter has been provided for that purpose (no standard USB “A” ports should be available).
WARNING: Read and follow these instructions carefully!
PICTURE: mainboard USB pin headers.
Locate the extra USB pin headers on your mainboard. This header is on all model BATMs, near the standard USB “A” bank. See image for easier location.
This header is the only USB header on the mainboard. The other pin grids ARE NOT USB!
BLACK is always towards the USB ports!
Connect the adapter onto the headers as shown in these pictures. This new port will supply power to your alarm. It’s possible to reverse this connection - and damage may then occur. Pay attention!
CRITICAL: The RED wire connects to the pin farthest from the USB ports (as shown above).
