2. Remove both batteries from the sensor.
3. Locate the tamper switch, which is the little black switch in the middle of the sensor, and press it down 10 times.
4. Ensure the tamper depressor is still located within the mount.
5. Replace the batteries in the sensor.
6. Remount the sensor by latching it onto the top of the mount, then bring it down so that it snaps shut.
