Smoke alarms can only HELP protect
your family and home against loss
from a fire. For maximum protection
install smoke alarms in every
bedroom, and every other area of
the home, making sure the people
in the home will be able to hear and
respond to the alarm sound.
WARNING – Smoke alarms may give
you a warning of fire and smoke but
only if you install, use and maintain
them as recommended in this
instruction leaflet.
WHAT SMOKE ALARMS
WILL NOT DO
A smoke alarm will not work without power – Your smoke alarm needs mains power (220-240V) and a good battery (9V) that is installed correctly to operate.
A smoke alarm will not sense a fire when smoke cannot reach the unit – If a fire starts in a chimney, wall, roof, the other side of a closed door or any other isolated area, the smoke
alarm may not sense the smoke and may not give a warning. If you do not have a smoke alarm in the bedroom and sleep with the door closed, a fire inside the bedroom may not sound an alarm
located in another room. Therefore it is recommended that a smoke alarm be installed inside and outside all bedrooms. A smoke alarm will not promptly sense a fire except in the area in which
the smoke alarm is installed.
All types of smoke alarms have limitations – No type of smoke alarm can sense every kind of fire or smoke every time.

WHAT SMOKE ALARMS
CAN DO
Fire types – A photoelectric alarm like the Clipsal 755PSMA (this unit) responds faster to large smoke particles, while an ionisation alarm like the Clipsal 755SMA responds faster to smaller
smoke particles. Smouldering fires produce more large particles, so this type of fire will be more quickly detected by the 755PSMA photoelectric alarm. Flaming fires produce more small smoke
particles and this type of fire will be more quickly detected by an ionisation alarm like the 755SMA. The type of fire likely to occur in the location is therefore an important consideration when
choosing which type of smoke alarm to install.

How an ionisation alarm works – An ionisation detector uses a small amount of a radioactive source for correct operation and emitting alpha particles (positively charged particles) onto
an electrode. In turn a small current is established in the sensing chamber. Upon entering the sensing chamber, smoke particles change the electrical conductivity within the chamber. When the
electrical conductivity reaches a predetermined threshold, the unit goes into alarm mode and the horn will sound to alert occupants.
Nuisance alarms – Because an ionisation type alarm is sensitive to small smoke particles, it will respond more quickly to particles typically given off during cooking, even where there may
be no danger. On the basis of this “nuisance” alarming, consideration should be given to installing photoelectric alarms like the 755PSMA in kitchen areas. While the home owner will lose some
warning time in a fire that generates smaller smoke particles, they will also reduce the occurrence of the one nuisance that results in a lot of smoke alarms being disabled.
Using a smoke alarm in a smokey area like a kitchen or in a high humidity area such as a bathroom can cause false alarms. Do not remove the battery to quieten the alarm, or take the alarm
down. A smoke alarm will not protect you if it is not powered or if it is not there.
A smoke alarm may not always warn you about fires caused by the following:
• Smoking in bed
• Children playing with matches or lighters
• Incorrect storage of flammable materials
• Over-loaded electrical circuits.

Recommended Location of Alarms
Interconnecting Smoke Alarms
• Locate the first alarm in the immediate areas of the bedrooms. Try to protect the exit path as the bedrooms are usually furthest from an exit. If more than one sleeping area exists, locate
additional alarms in each sleeping area.
• Locate additional alarms to protect any stairway as stairways act like chimneys for smoke and heat.
• Locate at least one alarm on every floor level.
• Locate an alarm in any area where a smoker sleeps or where electrical appliances are operated in sleeping areas.
• Smoke, heat and other combustion products rise to the ceiling and spread horizontally. Mounting the detector on the ceiling in the centre of the room places it closest to all points in the room.
Ceiling mounting is preferred in ordinary residential construction. However, in mobile homes, wall mounting on an inside partition is required to avoid the thermal barrier that may form at
the ceiling.
• When mounting alarm in the ceiling, locate it a minimum of 30cm from a side wall and 30cm from any corner (see Diagram A).
• When mounting alarm on a wall, use an inside wall with the alarm a maximum of 50cm below the ceiling and at least 30cm from any corner (see Diagram A).
HOW INTERCONNECTED ALARMS FUNCTION
• Interconnecting smoke alarms is a method of joining a series of alarms so that if any one alarm
senses smoke, all the alarms in the series will operate (alarm).
• 9V signal on the I and N wires is used to alarm all the other interconnected alarms.
• A combination of Clipsal 755 Series Ionisation or Photoelectric smoke alarms can be used on
one circuit.
WARNING
• All interconnected smoke alarms must be supplied from a single power circuit.
• A common Neutral must be used for the Interconnect to function.
• DO NOT connect the Interconnect wire to Active or Neutral.
• A maximum of 40 Clipsal 755 Series smoke alarms can be installed on one circuit.

Active (A)
Develop and Practise a Plan of Escape
BASICS OF ESCAPE PLAN
• Make a floor plan indicating all doors and windows and at least two escape routes from each room. Second storey windows may
need a rope or chain ladder.
• Have a family meeting and discuss your escape plan, showing everyone what to do in case of fire.
• Determine a place outside your home where all of you can meet if a fire occurs e.g. letterbox.
• Familiarise everyone with the sound of the smoke alarm and train them to leave your home when they hear that sound.
• Identify children’s bedrooms with red stickers placed in the upper left corner of the windows.
• Practise a fire drill at least every six months. Practice allows you to test your plan before an emergency.
You may not be able to reach your children.
It is important they know what to do!
Avoid These Locations
• Do not install a smoke alarm within one metre of heating and cooling supply vents or within one metre of return air or fresh air vents. Smoke may be blown away from the smoke alarm by the
supply vents, or could be diffused or reduced by being diverted into the return air vent.
• Do not install your smoke alarm in an area where the temperature may fall below 5°C or rise above 45°C. Smoke alarms are designed to work safely only within these temperature ranges and
failure to alarm, improper alarms or nuisance alarms may result from operation outside these temperature limits.
• Do not install a smoke alarm in a damp or very humid area such as bathrooms with showers, where the normal humidity may rise above 90%. Above this level, moisture may condense inside
the smoke chamber and cause false alarms. The smoke alarm may also become unstable below 10% relative humidity.
• Do not install a smoke alarm in an area where particles of combustion are normally present, such as garages or kitchens etc. as this can cause false alarms.
• Do not install a smoke alarm in dusty or dirty areas – such an installation cannot be relied on. An accumulation of dust and dirt in the sensing chamber may block the openings and prevent an
alarm, or may get inside the alarm and cause false alarms. If a smoke alarm is required in such an area, vacuum it frequently and test it according to the ‘Operation and Testing’ section.
• Do not install a smoke alarm in the dead air space in the corner where the wall meets the ceiling. If in doubt as to the exact location of mounting, for your safety, contact your local fire
department for help choosing a location.
• Do not install a smoke alarm where bugs or insects are present before eliminating or minimising the problem. Although all smoke alarms built since 1985 are made to prevent bugs from
entering the detection chamber, bugs may build up on chamber openings and prevent smoke from entering. If bugs are present, vacuum the unit frequently as described in the
maintenance section.
• Do not install a smoke alarm within one metre of a fluorescent or compact fluorescent lamp. Electrical noise may cause nuisance alarms.
Installation
CAUTION: The smoke alarm will function correctly either as a stand-alone alarm or interconnected. All interconnected smoke alarms must be supplied from a single power circuit. A common
Neutral must be used for the Interconnect to function. Do not connect the Interconnect wire to Active or Neutral.
WIRING: All 220-240V wiring must comply with AS/NZS3000 wiring rules.
1. Strip the Active, Neutral and Interconnect (if used) wires back to the strip length shown.
2. Connect the wires to the correct terminals on the base as indicated and ensure the screws are fully tightened.
3. Clip the flap closed preventing accidental contact with the live terminals.
4. Screw the mounting base on the ceiling or wall using the screws provided.
5. Clip the smoke alarm on to the base and install the 9V battery. The smoke alarm base will only close with
a battery installed.
What to do if Alarm Sounds
• Leave immediately by following your escape plan. Every second counts so don’t waste time getting dressed or picking up valuables.
• In leaving, don’t open any inside door without first feeling its surface. If hot, or if you see smoke seeping through cracks, don’t open that door! Instead, use an alternative exit. If inside door is
cool, place your shoulder against it, open it slightly and be ready to slam it shut if heat and smoke rushes in.
• Stay close to the floor if air is smokey. Breathe shallowly through a cloth, wet if possible.
Most Importantly...
• Once outside, go to your selected meeting place and make sure everyone is there.
• Call the fire brigade from your neighbour’s home – not from yours!
• Don’t return to your home until fire officials say that it is all right to do so.
DON’T PANIC!
Operation and Testing
Operation
Testing
Operation
Once the mains power (220-240V) is connected and the 9V battery is present the
smoke alarm is operating.
TEST THE SMOKE ALARM ONCE PER MONTH TO ENSURE PROPER OPERATION
Test by pushing the Test / Hush button on the smoke alarm for three seconds until the alarm sounds.
The alarm sounds if all electronic circuitry, horn and battery are working. If no alarm sounds
check the battery is installed the correct way around or replace the battery. If the battery is new and
installed correctly and the alarm still doesn’t sound replace the smoke alarm.
If the smoke alarm is installed in a mobile home test weekly and after every journey.
Operation Once Smoke Is Detected
The smoke alarm will sound a loud alarm (85dB) and the red LED will flash rapidly.
This will continue until the air is cleared.
Standby Condition
The red LED flashes once every 40-60 seconds to indicate the smoke alarm and battery
are functioning correctly.
Green LED
The green LED glows when the mains power (220-240V) is on.
Note: Do not close unless a battery is installed.
6. Turn on the mains power and check the green and red LEDs function. Green LED should glow to show mains
power present. Red LED will pulse every 40-60 seconds to indicate correct operation and the 9V battery is OK.
7. Press the Test / Hush button to check the alarm works.
DO NOT LEAVE THE INSTALLATION UNTIL THE RED AND GREEN LEDS AND THE ALARM HAVE BEEN
CHECKED FOR CORRECT OPERATION.
IMPORTANT - If premises is unoccupied for a period of time (more than a few days) then battery test
should be undertaken on return. If the low battery warning sounds, test and replace battery if necessary.
• Caution: Never use an open flame of any type to test your alarm.
• Check all interconnected smoke alarms operate during the test.
Replacing the Backup Battery
The secondary backup power for the smoke alarm is supplied by a 9V carbon zinc or alkaline battery. The battery should last at least one year under normal operating conditions.
IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU REPLACE THE BATTERY ON A DAY YOU CAN REMEMBER EVERY YEAR i.e. birthday, daylight saving.
Use minimum of 1mm2 250V insulated wire
for all wiring including interconnecting.
