If you buy inLINK with your 20-Circuit Kit, we pre-install it for you at the factory.  If you don’t buy inLINK up front, you can add it at any time.  Installing it to your MASTERCELL is very simple.  You only need a screw driver.  No software updates are needed.  The MASTERCELL is pre-programmed to talk to the inLINK radio receiver board.

The inLINK kit includes the inLINK Radio Receiver Board, two spacers, two screws and two of the inLINK key fobs.  The following instructions show you how to install the inLINK Radio Receiver Board into the MASTERCELL.

STEP 1- Disconnect the MASTERCELL.

Remove Back Cover

Once the screws are removed, carefully separate the plastic housing (A) from the back cover (B) as shown in Figure 3.  Carefully separate the housing and back cover of the MASTERCELL unit by first turning the unit upside down and gently placing your fingers in the input connector shells.  Gently press up on the connector pins while holding the plastic housing (A) with your thumbs until the back cover is separated from the housing.  Be sure to keep the plastic housing facing down to keep the buttons in place. If they do fall out, locate all five buttons and put them to the side.  Set aside the plastic housing, keeping it upside-down so that the buttons do not fall out.

STEP 4- Prepare the inLINK Radio Receiver Board.
