DMP 1101 Series Wireless Universal Transmitter Installation Guide

DMP 1101 Series Wireless Universal Transmitter


The 1101 Series Wireless Universal Transmitters are two‑way supervisory wireless transmitters typically used for door and window applications. The 1101E features 128‑bit AES encryption.The transmitter provides a cover tamper, magnetic reed switch, and an onboard terminal block to allow for external contact wiring. Both sets of contacts, internal and external, can be programmed to operate at the same time. This allows two independent zones to operate from one 1101.The 1101 Series also features Disarm/Disable functionality. When this option is enabled, Zone Tripped messages are disabled when the system is disarmed.

What’s Included

  • One 1101 Wireless Universal Transmitter
  • One Magnet with Standard and Commercial Housing
  • One 3.0 V lithium CR123A battery
  • Hardware pack


  • All DMP 1100 Series Wireless Receivers
  • All DMP XT Series and XR Series panels

Note: To enable encryption on 1101E models, Version 183 is required for XT and XR Series panels and Version 300 is required for Wireless Receivers.


To install an 1101, this guide walks you through these required steps:

  1. Program the panel.
  2. Install the battery.
  3. Use the LED Survey to select a location.
  4. Mount the transmitter.
  5. Wire external contacts (optional).
  6. Test the transmitter.

PCB Layout


Program the PanelRefer to the panel programming guide as needed. After completing each of the following steps, press CMD to advance to the next prompt.

  1. At a keypad, enter 6653 (PROG) to access the Programmer Menu.
  2. For an 1101E, use the two steps below and then continue to step 3. Otherwise, go to step 3.
    • Go to SYSTEM OPTIONS. At 1100 ENCRYPTION, select ALL to only add encrypted wireless devices to the system. Select BOTH to allow both encrypted and non‑encrypted wireless devices to be programmed.
    • The default passphrase appears at the ENTER PASSPHRASE prompt. Press CMD to keep the default.Press any select key or area to change the passphrase and enter an 8‑character hexadecimal string (0‑9, A‑F).
  3. At ZONE INFORMATION, enter the wireless zone number you would like to use (must begin in the 500 range when using XR panels).
  4. At *UNUSED*, enter the zone name.
  5. At ZONE TYPE, press any select key or area and select the zone type.
  6. At the NEXT ZN? prompt, select NO.
  7. When WIRELESS? displays, select YES.
  8. At SERIAL#, enter the eight‑digit device serial number found on device packaging.
  9. At CONTACT, select either INTERNAL or EXTERNAL. Use consecutive zone numbers if using both internal and external contacts.
  10. At SUPRVSN TIME, enter a supervision time. Default is 240.
  11. At DISARM DISABLE, select NO or YES.Note: Program the external contact first if using both internal and external contacts with Disarm/Disable functionality.
  12. At the NEXT ZONE prompt, select YES if you are finished programming the zone. Select NO if you would like to access additional programming options.
  13. To save panel programming, go to STOP and press CMD.

Install the BatteryUse a 3.0 V lithium battery, a DMP Model CR123A battery, or an equivalent model from Sony or Murata. For listed installations, use either an Energizer® 123 battery or a CR123A battery manufactured by Panasonic or Tekcell.

  1. Push the button on the end of the transmitter and separate the two halves.
  2. Observing polarity, place the battery in the holder and press it into place. Refer to Figure 1 during installation.

Use the LED Survey to Select a LocationThe transmitter provides a Survey LED capability to allow one person to confirm communication with the wireless receiver or panel while the cover is removed.

  1. With the cover removed, hold the transmitter in the exact desired location.
  2. Press the tamper switch to send data to the panel and determine if communication is confirmed or faulty.Confirmed: If communication is confirmed, for each press or release of the tamper switch the LED blinks immediately on and immediately off. Repeat this test to confirm five separate consecutive LED blinks. Any indication otherwise means proper communication has not been established.Faulty: If communication is faulty, the LED remains on for about 8 seconds or flashes multiple times in quick succession. Relocate the transmitter or receiver until the LED confirms clear communication.

Mount the Transmitter

Mount the HousingWhen mounting the transmitter, refer to Figure 1 and Figure 2 for battery and mounting hole locations.

  1. Remove the battery and the PCB.
  2. Place the supplied #4 screw into the mounting hole and secure the transmitter housing to the surface.
  3. Reinsert the PCB and the battery.
  4. Snap the transmitter cover back onto the base.

Mount the MagnetFor magnet placement options, see Figure 5.

Standard Installation

  1. Push the supplied magnet into the magnet cover.
  2. Hold the magnet base on the door closest to the magnetic reed switch, no more than 1/2” (1.3 cm) from the transmitter.
  3. Use the provided #4 screws to mount the base. See Figure 2.
  4. Snap the cover onto the base.

Commercial Installation

  1. Push the supplied magnet into the magnet cover.
  2. Place and hold the magnet cover directly on the door closest to the magnetic reed switch, no more than 1/2” (1.3 cm) apart from the transmitter.
  3. Use the provided #4 screws to mount the cover. See Figure 4.

Wire External Contacts (Optional)Refer to Zone Information in the appropriate panel programming guide for more information. DMP recommends using 18 or 22 AWG unshielded wire for contact connections. Do not use twisted pair or shielded wire. Refer to Figure 6 when wiring external contacts.

  1. Use a flathead screwdriver to loosen the two external contact terminal screws.
  2. Insert external contact wiring into the 1101 terminal block and tighten the screws.
  3. Connect the other ends of the wires to the external contact as either normally open (N/O) or normally closed (N/C) without an end‑of‑line resistor.
  4. Snap the transmitter cover back onto the base.

Test the TransmitterAfter the transmitter has been installed, test to confirm that it is communicating reliably with the panel. Use the Tech APP™ to perform a Wireless Check-in Test on the system or complete the following steps to perform a Check-in Test from a keypad that is connected to the panel. At the keypad, enter 8144 (WALK) and select WLS.


Supervision TimeWhen a receiver is installed, powered up, or the panel is reset, the supervision time for transmitters is reset. If the receiver has been powered down for more than one hour, wireless transmitters may take up to an additional hour to send a supervision message unless tripped, tampered, or powered up. This operation extends battery life for transmitters. A missing message may display on the keypad until the transmitter sends a supervision message.

Replace the Battery

  1. Push the button on the end of the transmitter and separate the two halves.
  2. Remove the old battery, observe polarity, and place the new battery in the holder.
  3. Snap the cover back on the transmitter.

Sensor Reset to Clear LOBATOnce the battery is replaced, a sensor reset is required at the keypad to clear the LOBAT message. On an LCD keypad, press and hold 2 for two seconds. On a graphic touchscreen keypad, press RESET. Enter your user code, if required.The keypad displays SENSORS OFF followed by SENSORS ON.
