We at Avara want it to be easy to install and use our alarms. Here you will find what you need, but also remember that you can always contact us at or by phone +47 70 31 00 86 if you need more assistance. We will help you as quickly as we can!


The main unit's battery warning is common to all units in the alarm system (excluding any moisture sensors). Each unit has an LED that flashes green when the alarm is on and the detector has a fresh battery.

If a device's battery is low, it will start flashing red - short flashes every 10 seconds. To find the device that has a low battery, turn on the alarm (night or burglar alarm) and check each device to see which one is flashing red.

The propane gas detector will normally reach approximately 20mA when the 12V battery is on charge or maintenance charge. Then this consumption doesn't matter. If you disconnect the charger, after three days the propane gas detector will go into power saving mode and use completely negligible power. It does so by measuring only 4 times a day, which is enough when the device is not inhabited.

When the alarm is in night alarm mode, the motion detector on the main unit will detect that you are up and about. If you are also detected by an intrusion detector, the alarm will understand that there is no intrusion and will not sound an alarm since the main unit will see you first.

In this context, the term "narcotic gas" is not very precise. What kind of gas it is is completely unknown and subject to much speculation. Traditional "narcotic gas alarms" are therefore equipped with a sensor that is assumed to be able to detect the relevant gases, but with a high degree of uncertainty. Such sensors are the main cause of false alarms and alarm systems not being used. It creates a false sense of security.

Avara has therefore chosen to solve the task of detecting impacts and break-ins from the outside using smarter external detectors and intrusion detectors. This will still give an earlier warning than a gas detector.
"Universal gas detector" is still available as an option if desired.

When you test the propane gas detector with gas, you will see that it flashes red after a few seconds. It has then registered the gas. Gas must be constantly present in the detector for another 1 minute before an alarm is triggered. This is designed to eliminate potential false alarms triggered by short-term gas emissions, for example from a dog lying on the floor and "gassing".

Feel free to press the test button on the propane gas detector after you have confirmed that it detects gas as described above. You should get an acknowledgement tone from the main unit - then you know that the detector is communicating with the main unit and will alert you if gas is detected.

Movement on the outside is not burglary or illegal. Therefore, this is not an alarm condition. In night alarm, on the other hand, this is much more interesting to be alerted about, as it may be an impending burglary. Therefore, there is a difference.

However, we have chosen to have the external detectors flash when someone comes under them, even in intruder alarm mode. 

No, it doesn't help. Although there is a delay in input, a message has already been sent to the siren and modem. And if no receipt from the main unit has been read in a short period of time, the alarm is sent out from the modem and the siren sounds the alarm.

It depends on its use and will vary. If you are not notified of low battery then switch anyway after 5 years. It ensures that the batteries do not start leaking and thereby could destroy the devices.

Yes. Use only high-quality alkaline batteries. Bad batteries can fail over time and in the cold.

Avara Moist uses sensors that measure relative humidity (RH%). Manual meters with spikes measure absolute humidity. The values cannot be directly compared and do not have a fixed conversion. In general, relative humidity measurements therefore have a higher numerical value than absolute measurements without the humidity being higher for that reason.
Avara's measurement method is more precise in order to detect the risk of mold formation and not just humidity.

In theory "infinite."" They don't want to be drained, but they're ageing. So does the sensor, so we estimate the life of the sensor to 15 years, but it could be both longer and shorter. If the sensor is exposed to a direct leak and is filled with water or is long in high humidity, it is deemed exhausted, it has done its job and needs to be replaced.

All the sensors paired to the modem are stored in memory and the modem expects measurement data from everyone. If one or more sensors stop sending, after a few days they will be reported missing and you will be notified by SMS and email which sensors are not working.

The sensors send only a single short transmission daily. To save the battery, there is no double check and multiple attempts. This means that it takes little before a shipment does not arrive. This can be without impairment of the function as long as the sensor transmits at least once a week. Adversely placed sensors can behave like this. There is therefore no need to do anything before a sensor completely stops transmitting.

If all the detectors are with motion detector up, we these could detect motion in sequence that corresponds to you getting out of the car / carriage and turning off the alarm automatically for you.
Also, if you move the main unit after it is turned on in Night Alarm, it will turn off as it perceives this as driving and therefore automatically turns off the alarm for you.

When the alarm is mounted, it will operate normally.

If you have been inside and turned on the alarm, then gone out to test, then the alarm has detected movement from the inside out and therefore turned off again.
To test this feature, you must turn on the alarm and exit quickly. Wait three minutes and you will then be able to trigger an alarm by opening a door / hatch with a burglar detector.

If the alarm has just been turned on or off, it is busy communicating with all the detectors. Wait a minute and try again.

If you find that an exterior detector detaches, this indicates that it has not been cleaned properly or with the wrong cleaning agent. Note in particular that if the car/vehicle has been treated with paint sealant or similar, special cleaning agents may be required. If necessary, contact the person who carried out the work.

This way you can find out which detector is located where and give them their own name:

  • Set the night alarm and step out of your motorhome or caravan and at least 3 meters to the side so that none of the external detectors "see" you.
  • NB - wait 3 minutes until the alarm is activated before continuing!
  • Then go to the wall of your motorhome/caravan, under one of your external detectors and move under it for at least 30 seconds until you hear the internal alarm from the main unit (night alarm) - constant peep
  • Enter your motorhome/caravan and turn off the alarm
  • Then go to My Account, select Alerts, and then Events: you will see the ID number of the device that sent the alarm to the portal (Outdoor PIR).

For intrusion detectors: do the same as above, wait 30 seconds and then open a door where an intrusion detector is installed. Make sure you are "seen", wait until you hear the interior alarm in the main unit and then go in and turn off the alarm. Go to My Account, etc... and note which door/garage it was.

Repeat this for 3 of your 4 burglar detectors (Burglar alarm). Then you have ID on these 3 and also know where the 4th is mounted

It takes 3 minutes from when you turn on the alarm until it is activated. This applies to both night alarms and intruder alarms. 

During these 3 minutes, you can move freely inside the motorhome/caravan and go in and out of the doors.

When one of your detectors flashes or glows red, it means that the batteries are running low. Replace all the batteries in the detector. See the user guide here on Support or watch how to change the battery on our YouTube channel -

Press the test button on the detector to check that there is communication with the main unit. When you press the button, you should get an acknowledgement tone from the main unit within a few seconds.

On the intrusion detectors used in doors and hatches, the test button is located at the bottom right. 

On external detectors, the button is a black rubber button marked "Pairing". 

On the propaneand universal gas detectors, the button is on the bottom right.

You can easily expand any Avara alarm with additional detectors. Purchase the detector you want from a retailer. Any new detectors not included in the alarm package must be paired to your alarm system.

You can either ask your dealer to pair it into your alarm system, or you can do it yourself. 

Read about pairing additional detectors in the User guide, which can be found here under Support.

If your alarm was installed by a dealer, the dealer may have created an account for you. In that case, select "Forgot password" and enter your email address that you gave to the dealer. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Avara Moist measures relative humidity (often referred to as RH%). These figures will differ from a measurement of absolute humidity which is measured during a manual check at a retailer. A relative humidity of less than 75% is not considered a source for the development of fungus and rot. If any of the sensors show more than 85% over a period of time, we will send a warning that you should pay attention and investigate whether you can see a possible leak. If the humidity is measured at over 90% for about 1 week, we will send a moisture alarm. The car/vehicle should then be brought in for inspection/repair at a certified workshop as soon as possible.

Each humidity sensor measures humidity once a day, and the measurement is sent to "My Account". Here you will be able to follow how the absolute humidity varies over time.

Press the pairing button (labeled Pairing) under the lid of the main unit, wait a moment and then press again (this takes the main unit in and out of pairing mode). Information about all devices paired with the main unit is now sent to the modem. Then press thePairing button on the modem, wait a moment and then press again. Now all pairing information about all detectors is sent to the portal and you should be able to see all detectors listed.

Your subscription must run continuously in order not to risk the telecom operator using the phone number (belonging to the eSim card in your modem) to others if it is not active during a period of 6 months. Avara would in that case have to continue to pay on your subscription to our telecom provider to maintain your subscription.

You can easily create a desktop icon on your mobile phone to make it easier to operate your Avara alarm. In this way, access to My Account on becomes almost like an APP.
