pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable  
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates,  
uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with  
the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications.  
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this  
equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be

This system is equipped with non-skid rubber ‘feet’ to prevent the product from moving when you  
operate the controls. These ‘feet’ are made from non-migrating rubber material specially formulated to  
avoid leaving any marks or stains on your furniture. However certain types of oil based furniture  
polishes, wood preservatives, or cleaning sprays may cause the rubber ‘feet’ to soften, and leave  
marks or a rubber residue on the furniture.  
To prevent any damage to your furniture we strongly recommend that you purchase small self-adhesive  
felt pads, available at hardware stores and home improvement centers everywhere, and apply these  
pads to the bottom of the rubber ‘feet’ before you place the product on fine wooden furniture.
