Recommendation: QUICK FIND® Alarm Origination - In an
interconnected system, it is difficult to determine which alarm
initiated the alarms to sound. The QUICK FIND® feature will
immediately allow you to locate the originating alarm (once
the alarms have stopped sounding). To initiate QUICK FIND®,
press and hold the test/silence button on any alarm until the test
sequence on this alarm begins. Release the test button. The
specific horn pattern/sequence is designated by the alarm type.
Once this test sequence ends, the originating alarm continues
to sound for approximately 60 seconds. In a non-interconnected
installation, it is necessary to test each alarm to determine the
originating alarm. Reset the originating alarm.
