Pairing the handset (with LCD display)

Place the handset near the fire, i.e.within a metre (3 feet).No need to hold the handset at this time.


  • Simultaneously press and hold the - and + buttons on the gas valve control (not the handset) until the red light on top left of fire control begins to flash rapidly,(it will take about 5 seconds to start flashing), then immediately release the - and + buttons and quickly pressing just the power button on the gas fire control valve. Note: Pressing of the power button must be done within 1 second of the red light coming on. If not done quickly enough, then the above must be repeated until done correctly.

  • When done correctly you will hear an audible sound from the handset and the display will show the symbol " ⎤- -⎡ " and the green light on the handset will be flashing. You now have 60 seconds to accept the pairing. To do this pick up and hold the handset and hold it like a handshake to activate the unlocking of the keypad and press and hold the "SET" button for a few seconds.

Momentarily pressing and releasing the SET button advances through the settable features and pressing and releasing the MENU button returns to the previous one. Pressing + or – changes the displayed information, for example :-

  • You know when the setup menu has ended as will see the communication symbol (3 arcs of a circle) in the upper right hand side of the display. This symbol indicates that the handset is in operation mode (not setup ) and in good communication with the fire valve control

  • IMPORTANT NOTE : Even in case you do not complete all of the setup, the pairing is still stored once accepted by pressing set the first time. The handset will re enter setup mode at next unlock (pick up) or by entering set up mode manually. Do not send pairing request again from the valve ! If this is done the another factory reset of the handset will be required and reset and new pairing done again.
