Installation Instructions
Product Summary
The System Sensor Smoke Sensor Model 2100ARFT
(smoke alarm) is a Learn Mode, wireless, photoelectric
smoke sensor with a self-contained alarm siren, a low-battery annunciator, and a status light. The smoke alarm is part
of a security/fire alarm system and communicates with the
system control panel.
Each smoke alarm uses two 3-volt lithium batteries. The
batteries are shipped in the unit with a pull tab inserted at
the positive terminal. Remove the pull tab and reinstall the
batteries as needed, observing correct polarity.
The detector provides the following features:
❑
❑
Fixed/rate of rise 135° F temperature heat detector
trips an alarm when the temperature reaches 135° F or
higher, or when the temperature rises rapidly.
Freeze detector sends a trouble signal when the ambient temperature around the detector drops below 40° F.
This could indicate a heating problem on the premises.
System sirens sound trouble beeps, and if the condition
continues for one hour, the panel reports to central
monitoring station.
CAUTION
Not compatible with CareTaker® Plus and custom
versions with software versions 3.0 or earlier.
Not compatible with Commander® 2000 and custom
versions with software versions 4.0 or earlier.

Simon systems will only respond on site with trouble
beeps and will not report the trouble condition to the
central monitoring station.
Installation Guidelines
❑
❑
❑
This equipment should be installed in accordance with
the National Fire Protection Association’s Standard 72
and/or Standard 74 (National Fire Protection Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269).
Avoid installing the unit until all construction is completed. The mounting ring may be pre-installed.
Leave the orange dust cover on the unit until sheet
rocking and sanding are completed; otherwise, dust can
get into the unit and cause false alarms.
Note
The orange dust cover must be removed for the unit to
detect smoke.

in accordance with the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Standard 72, Chapter 8.
❑
NFPA 72, A-8-1.2.1.a Where to Locate the Required
Smoke Alarms/Detectors in Existing Construction. The
major threat from fire in a family living unit occurs at
night when everyone is asleep. The principal threat to
persons in sleeping areas comes from fires in the
remainder of the unit. Therefore, a smoke alarm(s)/
detector(s) is best located between the bedroom areas
and the rest of the unit. In units with only one bedroom
area on one floor, the smoke alarm(s)/detector(s)
should be located as shown in Figure 2.

NFPA 72, A-8-1.2.1.b Where to Locate the Required
Smoke Alarms/Detectors in New Construction. All of
the smoke alarms/detectors specified in A-8-1.2.1.a for
existing construction are required, and, in addition, a
smoke detector is required in each bedroom.

HEAT ACTIVATED ALARMS/DETECTORS
NFPA 72, A-8-1.2.1.c Are More Smoke Alarms/
Detectors Desirable? The required number of smoke
alarms/detectors might not provide reliable early
warning protection for those areas separated by a door
from the areas protected by the required smoke alarms/
detectors. For this reason, it is recommended that the
householder consider the use of additional smoke
alarms/detectors for those areas for increased
protection. The additional areas include the basement,
bedrooms, dining room, furnace room, utility room,
and hallways not protected by the required smoke
alarms/detectors. The installation of smoke alarms/
detectors in kitchens, attics (finished or unfinished), or
garages is not normally recommended, as these
locations occasionally experience conditions that can
result in improper operation.
Figure 2.Family units with one bedroom area.
In family units with more than one bedroom area or
with bedrooms on more than one floor, more than one
smoke alarm/detector is required, as shown in

having jurisdiction.
HEAT ACTIVATED ALARMS/DETECTORS
Figure 3.Family units with more than one bedroom
area.
In addition to smoke alarms/detectors outside of the
sleeping areas, Chapter 8 requires the installation of a
smoke alarm/detector on each additional story of the
family living unit, including the basement. These
installations are shown in Figure 4. The living area
smoke alarm/detector should be installed in the living
room or near the stairway to the upper level, or in both
locations. The basement smoke alarm/detector should
be installed in close proximity to the stairway leading
to the floor above. Where installed on an open-joisted
ceiling, the alarm/detector should be positioned
relative to the stairway so as to intercept smoke
coming from a fire in the basement before smoke
enters the stairway.

Servicing
Replacing Batteries
When the batteries need to be replaced, the unit transmits a
signal to the panel. If the batteries are not replaced within 7
days, the unit will chirp every 44 seconds until the unit
shuts down in 7-8 days.
Note
If you test the smoke alarm or it goes into alarm during this initial 7-day period, chirp delay is canceled.The unit will then begin chirping continuously at
44 second intervals until the unit shuts down in 7-8
days.
Constant exposure to high or low temperatures or high
humidity may reduce battery life. Replace both batteries
when the smoke alarm or panel notifies you that the
batteries are low.
In the event that the smoke alarm needs servicing, send it to:
