ClareOne Keyfob Installation Sheet


keyfob front

Part number: CLR-C1-KF


The ClareOne Keyfob is a battery operated wireless handheld alarm sensor. When a button is pressed, the associated command is sent to the ClareOne panel.


  • The keyfob requires that each button is programed with the desired command (Away, Stay, Disarm, and SOS).
  • The keyfob has a range of up to 100 ft. Metal, floors, and appliances may affect the range.

Important safety instructions

Before you program this sensor, be sure to:

  • Read, keep, and follow all instructions.
  • When there is a low battery, replace with a compatible lithium ion battery.


Use the ClareOne panel to add and setup the keyfob.

To add the keyfob to the panel:

  1. Add the sensor to the panel. See “Sensor Management.” ClareOne User Guide (DOC ID 1871).
  2. Once added, test the sensor.
    Look at the ClareOne panel, and then press Away/Stay.
    Notice that the panel begins to arm.

Note: Testing all sensors to the alarm monitoring station is strongly advised.

Button function

The keyfob has 4 buttons. Once the keypad is added to the panel, the buttons control the arming and disarm features of the panel.

Away: When tapping this button, the panel arms in Away mode.

Stay: When tapping this button, the panel arms in Stay mode.

Disarm: When tapping this button, the panel is disarmed.

SOS: When tapping this button twice within 3 seconds, the keyfob sends a panic notification to the alarm monitoring station.

Battery replacement

The ClareONE Keyfob requires a CR2032 battery. Once the battery is low, the panel displays a low battery icon next to the sensor in the devices list. The battery must be replaced within 7 days of the first low battery notification. If the battery is not replaced within 7 days, the sensor may not function properly.

WARNING: If an incompatible replacement battery is used, or the battery is installed incorrectly explosion or damages may occur.

AVERTISSEMENT: Si une batterie de remplacement incompatible est utilisée ou si la batterie est installée de manière incorrecte, une explosion ou des dommages peuvent survenir.  

To replace the battery:

Note: Verify that the panel is not armed before changing the battery.

  1. Flip the keyfob onto its face (buttons down), and locate the screw holding the casing together.
