Overview
Test /Silence
The Smoke Alarm is wireless and battery powered. Alarm
Button
includes a built-in sounder for alarm alerts and a visual
status light. Alarm works as part of a security/fire alarm
system and communicates with control panel.
Under normal (non-alarm) conditions, light flashes once
every 9 seconds while alarm monitors surrounding conditions.
When alarm detects a smoke or fire condition or a sudden rise
in temperature, light changes from flashing to on and built-in
sounder produces a loud beeping pattern. Alarm also transmits
an alarm signal, which panel receives and processes accordingly. Sounder Light
The smoke alarm provides the following features:
• Self-diagnostics—smoke alarm monitors its own sensitivity and operational status.
• Base tamper switch—sends a tamper signal transmission to control panel when smoke alarm
is removed from mounting base.
• Integrated fixed 135° F temperature and rate-of-rise heat detector—activates an alarm based
on high temperature detected or rapidly rising temperature rate (15° F/minute minimum).

A-8-1.2.1.a Locating Required Smoke Alarms 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)
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) should be located as shown above. In family living units with more than
one bedroom area or with more than one floor, more than one smoke alarm is required as shown above.
In addition to smoke alarms outside of the sleeping areas, the installation of a smoke alarm on each
additional story of the family living unit, including the basement, is required as shown in figure 4.
The living area smoke alarm should be installed in the living room or near the stairway to the upper level,
or in both locations. The basement smoke alarm should be installed in close proximity to the stairway
leading to the floor above. Where installed on an open-joist ceiling, the alarm should be placed on the
bottom of the joists. The alarm should be positioned relative to the stairway to intercept smoke coming
from a fire in the basement before the smoke enters the stairway.
A-8-1.2.1.b Locating Required Smoke Alarms in New Construction
All of the smoke alarms specified in A-8-1.2.1.a for existing construction are required and, in addition,
a smoke alarm is required in each bedroom.
A-8-1.2.1.c Are More Smoke Alarms Desirable?
The required number of smoke alarms might not provide reliable early warning protection for those
areas separated by a door from the areas protected by the required smoke alarms. For this reason,
it is recommended that the householder consider the use of additional smoke alarms 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.
The installation of smoke alarms in kitchens, attics (finished or unfinished), or garages is not normally
recommended, as these locations occasionally experience conditions that can result in improper operation.
Since regulations pertaining to smoke alarm/detector installation vary from state to state, contact
the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ). Where public safety is primary, the AHJ may be a federal,
state, local, or other regional department or individual such as a fire chief, fire marshal, chief of
a fire prevention bureau, labor or health department, building official, electrical inspector, or others
having statutory authority. For insurance purposes, an insurance inspection department, rating bureau,
or other insurance company representative may be the AHJ. In some cases, the property owner or their
designated agent assumes the role of the AHJ. At government installations, the commanding officer
or department official may be the AHJ.

General Guidelines
• Before mounting alarms, program them into control panel and perform a sensor test from alarm’s
intended location, to ensure good RF communication to control panel.
• Locate alarm in environmentally controlled areas where temperature range is between
40° and 100° F (4.4° and 37.8° C) and humidity is between 0 and 90% noncondensing.
• Locate alarms away ventilation sources that can prevent smoke from reaching alarm.
• Locate ceiling mounted alarms in center of room or hallway, at least 4 inches (10cm) away from
any walls or partitions.
• Locate wall mounted alarms so top of the alarm is 4 to 12 inches (10 to 31cm) below ceiling.
• In rooms with sloped, peaked, or gabled ceilings, locate alarms 3 feet (.9 meters) down or away
from highest point of the ceiling.
• When mounting to suspended ceiling tile, tile must be secured with appropriate fastener
to prevent tile removal.
Note: Do not mount alarm to the metal runners of suspended ceiling grids. The metal runners can draw
the magnetic field away from the tamper switch, causing a false tamper alarm.

FOR INDOOR
USE ONLY
Locations to Avoid
Do not install smoke alarms:
• in or near areas where combustion particles are normally present such as in kitchens, garages,
near furnaces, hot water heaters, or gas space heaters.
• on the ceiling in rooms next to kitchens where there is no transom between the kitchen and such rooms.
• in damp or very humid areas or next to bathrooms with showers. Locate detectors at least 5 feet
(1.5 meters) away from bathrooms.
• in very cold or very hot areas.
• near fresh air inlets or returns or excessively drafty areas. Heating/air conditioning vents, fans,
and fresh air intakes can drive smoke away from smoke alarms.
• in dead air spaces at the top of peaked ceilings or in corners where walls and ceiling meet.
Dead air may prevent smoke from reaching a smoke alarm.
• near fluorescent light fixtures. Locate smoke alarms at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from these fixtures.

TECHNOLOGY
Troubleshooting
The following describes how the alarm
indicates a fault condition. Correct fault
conditions as soon as possible.
The light stops working (no flashing or turning on) if the alarm sensitivity is not within the normal
range, or if an unserviceable fault is detected. You can test the alarm sensitivity as follows:
1. Press and hold Test/Silence button for two seconds, then release it. The alarm performs
a self-test that causes the light to flash.
2. Count the number of light flashes. Use the following reference to determine what action is necessary.
Flashes Indicates Action
0 - 1 Unserviceable fault
Remove batteries for 2 - 3 minutes. Re-install and test again. If result is the same, call 1-800-443-4124.
2 - 3 Alarm sensitivity is increasing
Clean alarm using a dry or damp (water only) cloth to remove dust/dirt. Remove batteries
for 2 - 3 minutes. Re-install and test again. If result is the same, call 1-800-443-4124.
4 - 7 Normal sensitivity range
No action required.
8 - 9 Alarm sensitivity is decreasing
Clean alarm using a dry or damp (water only) cloth to remove dust/dirt. Remove batteries
for 2 - 3 minutes. Re-install and test again. If result is the same, call 1-800-443-4124.
The alarm stops transmitting supervisory signals if the alarm has an unserviceable fault or is not
sensitive enough, causing the control panel to indicate the detector is in a supervisory condition.
However, the alarm can still transmit alarm signals.
Call 1-800-443-4124 if this happens.
When to Replace the Batteries
When battery voltage gets low, alarm transmits a low battery signal for control panel
to receive. If batteries are not replaced within seven days, the built-in sounder emits a short beep
or chirp every 45 seconds. Alarm chirps can be silenced for 24 hours by pressing the Test/Silence
button. Batteries should be replaced as soon as possible.
Replacing the Batteries
Use only the following 3V lithium batteries: Sanyo CR123A, Panasonic CR123A, or Duracell 123.
1. Remove alarm from mounting base.
2. Remove battery cover.
3. Remove batteries and dispose of them in accordance with your local laws.
4. Insert two new 3V lithium batteries, following + and - markings in the bottom of battery compartment
and replace cover.
5. Reattach alarm to mounting base.
6. Test system.
Fire Prevention and Escape
The purpose of an early warning smoke alarm is to detect the presence of fire in its early stages and
sound an alarm giving the occupants time to exit the premises safely.
Avoid Fire Hazards
No detection device can protect life in all situations. Therefore, safeguards should be taken to avoid
potentially dangerous situations as follows:
• Do not smoke in bed.
• Do not leave children home alone.
• Never clean with flammable liquids such as gasoline.
• Properly store materials. Use general good housekeeping techniques to keep your home neat and tidy.
A cluttered basement, attic, or other storage area is an open invitation to fire.
• Use combustible materials and electrical appliances carefully and only for their intended uses.
Do not overload electrical outlets
• Do not store explosive and/or fast burning materials in your home.
• Even after proper precautions have been taken, fires can start. Be prepared.
In Case of Fire
In the event of a fire, you should do the following:
• Leave immediately. Do not stop to pack or search for valuables.
• In heavy smoke, hold your breath and stay low, crawl if necessary. The clearest air is usually near the floor.
• If you have to go through a closed door, carefully feel the door and door knob to see if undue heat
is present. If they seem cool, brace your foot against the bottom of the door with your hip against
the door and one hand against the top. Open it slightly. If a rush of hot air is felt, slam the door quickly
and latch it. Unvented fire tends to build up considerable pressure. Be sure all members of the
household realize and understand this danger.
• Use your neighbor’s phone or a street fire alarm box to call the fire department. The job of extinguishing
the fire should be left to the professionals.
Be Prepared
• Practice the following steps to prepare you and your family in the event of a fire:
• Perform fire drills regularly. Use them to assure recognition of an alarm signal.
• Draw a floor plan and show two exits from each room. It is important that children be instructed
carefully, because they tend to hide in times of crisis.
• Establish one meeting place outside the home. Insist that everyone meet there during an alarm. This
will eliminate the tragedy of someone re-entering the house for a missing member who is actually safe.
• If you have children and/or physically challenged people residing in your household, use window
decals to help emergency personnel identify the sleeping quarters of these individuals.
WARNING!
Smoke alarms cannot provide warnings for fires resulting from:
• explosions
• smoking in bed or other furniture
• ignition of flammable liquids, vapors, or gases
• children playing with matches or fire
