Sentry II® WLS Motor System*
Introducing Truth's next generation of power window systems. Sentry II WLS for windows and Light Skylights. Based on the powerful and reliable mechanics from their previous motorization system, they've added a new digital electronics package with built in power conversion. This New Sentry II WLS system truly takes over where Truth's Sentry 2000 left off.
This System Sentry II WLS is for cover size: 1-63/64” x 9-7/8”
A sleek design and quiet motor are engineered into this exciting digitally motorized system. The Sentry II® WLS (window & light skylights) system retrofits casement or awning windows formerly operated by Truth hand cranks. A power conversion accepts direct connection of line voltages. Power protected memory eliminates the need to reset the motor after a power outage. The Sentry II® WLS System has a rain sensor which automatically closes the window at the first sign of moisture. Building automation systems can be easily connected.

Frequently Asked Questions – Truth Hardware Sentry II
WLS Q: How many motors can I connect to the control box?
A: Each motor requires its own control box.
Q: Can I use one rain sensor for a group of control boxes?
A: Each control box requires its own rain sensor.
Q: How can I tell a group of WLS units to open or close at the same time?
A: There are two options for accomplishing this:
Option 1: Use the 43.53 Hand Held Remote.
Option 2: Connect the HPI connections on the control box to a contact closure driven by a
home automation system. Each control box requires its own contact closure.
Q: What are the HPI or High Priority Inputs?
A: HPI is a way of letting another system, home automation or building management, tell the WLS control box to open or close. Each control box will require its own contact closure. Please refer to the installation instructions for additional details.
Q: Why are the covers not part of the WLS motor kit?
A: To make it easier for our customers to manage their inventory it was decided to not have the whole kit tied to a color. The covers are stocked separately.
Q: There is a gap visible between the motor and the window and/or manual operator, what can I do about it?
A: Depending on the window, the manual operator used, and the installation of the window, there maybe some space visible.

Refer to the installation instructions to make sure the motor is installed properly for the window and manual operator being used.

Q: Does the WLS system work on other window hardware that is not manufactured by Truth Hardware?
A: Yes, We have a special WLS kit for Pella windows, part number 43.54. Be sure to review the window. Most Pella applications would require motorized locks.
