The transmitter is the main control for your electric dog fence. It emits a signal that is carried through your boundary wire, creating the line that your dog cannot cross. From the transmitter, you can set the width of the boundary, or how close your dog gets to the wire before the warning and correction start. The transmitter will alarm if there is a break in the dog fence wire, or if the fence is not operational for some reason. The transmitter should be kept in an out-of-the-way location such as the garage, outdoor shed, or inside of the cabinet of an exterior wall. The transmitter box should be screwed to the wall, using the mounting screws that are supplied.
