NOTE:
Before removing the detector, notify the proper authorities
that the smoke detector system is undergoing maintenance
and will be out of service. Disable the zone or system undergoing maintenance to prevent unwanted alarms.
In general, detectors cannot be expected to provide warnings for fires
resulting from inadequate fire protection practices, violent explosions,
escaping gases that ignite, improper storage of flammable liquids like
cleaning solvents that ignite, other similar safety hazards, arson, smoking
in bed, children playing with matches or lighters, etc. Smoke detectors
used in high air velocity conditions may have a delay in alarm due to
dilution of smoke densities created by frequent and rapid air exchanges.
Additionally, high air velocity environments may create increased dust
contamination, demanding more frequent detector maintenance.
1. Remove the detector cover by placing a small-bladed screwdriver in
the cover removal slot and twisting it slightly until the cover can be
turned counterclockwise for removal.
2. Remove the screen by pulling it straight out (see Figure 8). Vacuum the
screen thoroughly.
3. Clean the black vaned chamber piece by vacuuming or blowing out
dust and particles.
4. To reinstall the screen, rotate the screen on the housing until it drops
into the alignment slots. Carefully push the screen onto the base,
making sure it fits tightly to the chamber. Replacement screens are
available (order part number RS23).
5. Replace the cover by rotating it clockwise until it locks in place.
6. Reinstall the detector into the system, enable system operation, and
notify the proper authorities that the system is back on line.
To keep your equipment in excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per the manufacturer’s recommendations and UL and
NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA
72, the National Fire Alarm Code, shall be followed. A preventative
maintenance agreement should be arranged through the local
manufacturer’s representative. Though smoke detectors are designed
for long life, they may fail at any time. Any smoke detector, fire alarm
equipment, or any component of that system which fails shall be repaired
or replaced as soon as possible.

WARNING
LIMITATIONS OF SMOKE DETECTORS/TRANSMITTERS
This smoke detector is designed to activate and initiate emergency
action, but will do so only when used in conjunction with an authorized
fire alarm system. This detector must be installed in accordance with
NFPA standard 72..
Smoke detectors will not work without power. AC or DC powered
smoke detectors will not work if the power supply is cut off for any reason.
Alarm signal sent by the wireless transmitter in this detector may be
blocked or reflected by metal before reaching the alarm receiver. Even
if the signal path has been recently checked, blockage can occur if a
metal object is moved into the path.
Smoke detectors will not sense fires which start where smoke does
not reach the detectors. Smoldering fires typically do not generate a lot
of heat which is needed to drive smoke up to the ceiling where the smoke
detector is usually located. For this reason, there may be large delays in
detecting a smoldering fire with either an ionization-type detector or a
photoelectric-type detector. Either one of them may alarm only after
flaming has initiated, which will generate the heat needed to drive the
smoke to the ceiling.
Smoke from fires in chimneys, in walls, on roofs, or on the other side of
a closed door may not reach the smoke detector and alarm it. A detector
cannot quickly detect, or sense at all, a fire developing on another level
of a building. Alarm warning devices, such as bell or horns, may not alert
people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the other side of closed
or partly open doors, or on another level. Persons may not hear a
warning device over the noise levels of a radio, air conditioner or other
appliances, or traffic. For this reason, detectors shall be located on
every level and in every bedroom within a building. Alarm warning
devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or waken
deep sleepers.
Smoke detectors shall be located in any room where an alarm
control is located, or in any room where alarm control connections
to an AC source or phone lines are made. If detectors are not so
located, a fire within any of these rooms could prevent the QED control
from reporting a fire.
Smoke detectors have sensing limitations, too. Ionization detectors
and photoelectronic detectors are required to pass fire tests of the
flaming and smoldering types. This is to ensure that both can detect a
wide range of fires. Ionization detectors offer a broad range of firesensing capability, but they are somewhat better at detecting fastflaming fires than slow-smoldering fires. Photoelectronic detectors sense
smoldering fires better than flaming fires, which have little, if any, visible
smoke. Because fires develop in different ways, and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type of detector is always best, and a given
detector may not always provide early warning of a specific type of fire.

Before installing detectors, please thoroughly read these installation instructions and Manual I56-407, Guide for Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors,
which provides detailed information on detector spacing, placement, zoning,
wiring, and special applications. Copies of this manual are available from
ADEMCO.
NOTICE: This manual should be left with the owner/user of this equipment.
IMPORTANT: This detector must be tested and maintained regularly following
NFPA 72 requirements. The detector should be cleaned at least once a year.
WARNING: Do not use the maintenance signal as an indication that the
detector has reached the limits of its nominal sensitivity range. Maintenance
only indicates that the detector may need cleaning or can no longer respond
to smoke and shall not be used as a sensitivity indicating means.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 5808 photoelectronic smoke/heat detector with built-in wireless transmitter is intended for use with wireless alarm systems that support QED 5800
series devices. Refer to QED control communicator installation instructions
for compatibility. The 5808 smoke/heat detector can be used with 5881 series
(L, M, H) and 5881EH receivers for residential installations. The 5808 smoke/
heat detector can be used with the 5881EH receiver for commercial installations. The transmitter can send alarm, tamper, maintenance (when QED
control panels are equipped to process maintenance signals), and battery
condition messages to the QED system's receiver. The maintenance signal
will either indicate that the photo chamber requires cleaning or that the detector
can no longer respond to smoke and may need replacement. Refer to the
wireless system's instructions for the maximum number of transmitters that can
be supported.
The 5808 sounds its built-in horn when smoke reaches the detector (the
LED also flashes rapidly) or when the air temperature reaches 135° F (the
LED flashes normally, about once every 40 seconds). A message is also
sent to the wireless QED control panel and the smoke detector's ID number
is displayed at the console. The alarm message is transmitted every 4
seconds until the smoke condition has cleared and the detector has reset.
About 1 second after the horn stops, a RESTORE message is transmitted
to the QED control panel and the ID number can be cleared from the panel.
During normal, maintenance, and low battery conditions, the LED flashes
approximately once every 40 seconds.
BATTERY INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT
The 5808 is powered by two 3-volt CR123A or DL123A Lithium batteries
(included). The detector checks for low batteries at every normal LED flash.
If a low battery is detected, the transmitter sends a low battery message to
the QED control panel, which beeps and displays the detector's ID. This
condition will exist for a minimum of seven days, and then the detector's
horn will "chirp" about every 40 seconds. The batteries should be replaced
BEFORE the chirps begin. BE SURE TO REPLACE BOTH BATTERIES
WITH FRESH ONES.
AD300-00-00
To replace batteries:
1. Remove the detector from its mounting plate by twisting the detector counterclockwise. Remove batteries, if replacing, and dispose properly.
2. Install two new 3-volt CR123A Lithium batteries in the battery compartment. Follow the polarity diagram inside the compartment.
3. Reinstall the smoke detector onto the mounting plate by turning the
detector clockwise.
4. Test the detector as described in the TESTING TRANSMITTER SIGNAL section of this manual. The LED should flash about once every 40
seconds to indicate normal operation. If the batteries are not installed
correctly, the smoke detector will not operate and the batteries may be
damaged. If the detector does not appear to be sending a signal during
any of the tests, check for correct battery installation.

PROGRAMMING
The smoke detector’s ID must be enrolled in the QED control panel during
installation of the system. The QED control panel should be programmed
to enroll the 5808 as an “RF” unit (must be programmed as “supervised RF”
for UL installations). Put the QED control panel in the program
ming mode and perform the following:
With the QED control panel, program the detector as loop 1 and either
manually enter the serial number that is on the label of the 5808, or press
the test switch to cause a transmission. Additional transmissions will cause
the “Confirm” display to appear on the keypad display.
See the QED control unit’s installation instructions for further details.

SMOKE DETECTOR LIMITATIONS
• Smoke detectors will not sense a fire if the smoke does not reach the
sensor or if the air temperature does not reach 135° F. In order for a
smoke detector to sense smoke, it must be installed in the immediate
vicinity of the fire. In addition, smoke from fires in chimneys, in walls, on
roofs, in remote parts of the building, or on another level from where the
smoke detector is located, may not reach the smoke detector quickly
enough for occupants to escape unharmed. For this reason, installer
shall install smoke detectors on every level, in every sleeping area,
and in every bedroom of the household.
• Smoke detectors may not be heard. The alarm horn in this smoke
detector meets or exceeds current Underwriter's Laboratories standards.
However, if the smoke detector is not located in the same room as the
occupant, or if it is blocked by a closed door or normal noise, the alarm horn
may not be heard. In addition, sound sleepers, or persons who are under
the influence of drugs or alcohol may not hear the alarm or be able to react
to it. Therefore, locate this smoke detector, which has a sounder rated
at 85 dB at 10 feet, on every level, in every sleeping area, and in every
bedroom of the household.
• In general, detectors may not always warn you about fires caused by
carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions,
escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson.
• Smoke detectors are not fool-proof. Like all electronic devices, smoke
detectors have limitations. No type of smoke detector can sense every
kind of fire every time. In addition, smoke from slow, smoldering fires
rises slowly and may not reach the smoke detector until actual flame
breaks out. This type of smoke may not reach the smoke detector in time
for occupants to escape unharmed.
• Smoke detectors are not a substitute for life or property insurance.
Though smoke detectors have been responsible for saving many lives, they
are not warranted or implied to protect lives or property in the event of a fire.
• To keep your equipment in excellent working order, ongoing maintenance
is required per the manufacturer’s recommendations and UL and NFPA
standards. At a minimum, the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA 72, the
National Fire Alarm Code, shall be followed. A preventative maintenance
agreement should be arranged through the local manufacturer’s representative. Though smoke detectors are designed for long life, they may fail at
any time. Any smoke detector, fire alarm equipment, or any component of
that system which fails shall be repaired or replaced as soon as possible.

Where Smoke Detectors Should NOT Be Installed
• In or near areas where combustion particles are normally present
such as kitchens; in garages where there are particles of combustion
in vehicle exhausts; near furnaces, hot water heaters, or gas space
heaters. Install detectors at least 20 feet (6 meters) away from
kitchens and other areas where combustion particles are normally present.
• On the ceiling in rooms next to kitchens where there is no transom
between the kitchen and these rooms. Instead, install the smoke
detector on an inside wall, furthest from the kitchen (See Figure 5). Be
sure not to install smoke detectors within 4" of the ceiling or any corner
or more than 6" from the ceiling.
LED
LED
Figure 5. Recommended smoke detector locations
to avoid air streams with combustion particles
• In damp or very humid areas, or next to bathrooms with showers.
The moisture in humid air can enter the sensing chamber as water
vapor, then cool and condense into droplets that cause a nuisance
alarm. Install detectors at least 5 feet (1.5 meters) away from
bathrooms.
• In very cold or very hot rooms or areas. Operating temperature of
the smoke detector is 40°F to 100°F (4°C to 38°C).
• In dusty, dirty, or insect-infested areas. Dust and dirt can build up
on the detector’s sensing chamber and make it overly sensitive, or can
block openings to the sensing chamber and keep the detector from
sensing smoke.
• Near fresh air inlets or returns or excessively drafty areas. Air
conditioners, heaters, fans, and fresh air intakes and returns can drive
smoke away from smoke detectors, making the detectors less effective.
• In dead air spaces at the top of a peaked ceiling or wall/ceiling intersect.
Dead air may prevent smoke from reaching a detector.
• Near fluorescent light fixtures. Install detectors at least 10 feet
(3 meters) away from such light fixtures.
WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF FIRE
1. DON’T PANIC — escape may depend on clear thinking.
2. Get out of the house following the planned escape routes, if possible.
Do not stop to dress or to collect anything.
3. Open doors carefully only after feeling them to see if they are hot. If
a door is hot, do not open it— follow an alternate escape route.
4. Keep close to the floor — smoke and hot gases rise. Breathe through
a cloth (wet, if possible) and take short shallow breaths.
5. Keep doors and windows closed unless it is necessary to open them
for escape.
6. Meet at your meeting place after leaving your home.
7. Call the local fire department as soon as possible from outside
the home.
8. Never re-enter a burning building.

4. When the console has received the test signal, release the TEST
switch. The horn will immediately stop and a few seconds later the
detector's ID number will clear from the console display.
5. If the console does not respond as noted, check the polarity of the
batteries and be sure they are fresh. If this is an initial installation, try
moving the detector to another location that provides proper reception. Also be sure that the detector's ID has been "enrolled" by the QED
control panel (see PROGRAMMING). Then, repeat the test.
6. Turn off the system's TEST mode from the console (security code +
OFF).

3. The LED on the detector should blink once per second and the horn
should sound within 3 seconds.
B. TEST MODULE (Model No. MOD400R)
The MOD400R test module can be used with a DMM or analog
voltmeter to check the detector sensitivity as described in the test
module’s manual.
C. SMOKE ENTRY TEST
Hold a smoldering punk stick or cotton wick at the side of the detector
and gently blow smoke through the detector until the unit alarms.
D. DIRECT HEAT METHOD (Hair dryer of 1000-1500 watts)
Direct the heat toward either side thermistor. Be sure to hold the heat
source about 12 inches from the detector to avoid damage to the
plastic. The detector will reset only after it has time to cool.

NOTE:
Before removing the detector, notify the proper authorities
that the smoke detector system is undergoing maintenance
and will be out of service. Disable the zone or system undergoing maintenance to prevent unwanted alarms.
In general, detectors cannot be expected to provide warnings for fires
resulting from inadequate fire protection practices, violent explosions,
escaping gases that ignite, improper storage of flammable liquids like
cleaning solvents that ignite, other similar safety hazards, arson, smoking
in bed, children playing with matches or lighters, etc. Smoke detectors
used in high air velocity conditions may have a delay in alarm due to
dilution of smoke densities created by frequent and rapid air exchanges.
Additionally, high air velocity environments may create increased dust
contamination, demanding more frequent detector maintenance.
1. Remove the detector cover by placing a small-bladed screwdriver in
the cover removal slot and twisting it slightly until the cover can be
turned counterclockwise for removal.
2. Remove the screen by pulling it straight out (see Figure 8). Vacuum the
screen thoroughly.
3. Clean the black vaned chamber piece by vacuuming or blowing out
dust and particles.
4. To reinstall the screen, rotate the screen on the housing until it drops
into the alignment slots. Carefully push the screen onto the base,
making sure it fits tightly to the chamber. Replacement screens are
available (order part number RS23).
5. Replace the cover by rotating it clockwise until it locks in place.
6. Reinstall the detector into the system, enable system operation, and
notify the proper authorities that the system is back on line.
To keep your equipment in excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per the manufacturer’s recommendations and UL and
NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA
72, the National Fire Alarm Code, shall be followed. A preventative
maintenance agreement should be arranged through the local
manufacturer’s representative. Though smoke detectors are designed
for long life, they may fail at any time. Any smoke detector, fire alarm
equipment, or any component of that system which fails shall be repaired
or replaced as soon as possible.

WARNING
LIMITATIONS OF SMOKE DETECTORS/TRANSMITTERS
This smoke detector is designed to activate and initiate emergency
action, but will do so only when used in conjunction with an authorized
fire alarm system. This detector must be installed in accordance with
NFPA standard 72..
Smoke detectors will not work without power. AC or DC powered
smoke detectors will not work if the power supply is cut off for any reason.
Alarm signal sent by the wireless transmitter in this detector may be
blocked or reflected by metal before reaching the alarm receiver. Even
if the signal path has been recently checked, blockage can occur if a
metal object is moved into the path.
Smoke detectors will not sense fires which start where smoke does
not reach the detectors. Smoldering fires typically do not generate a lot
of heat which is needed to drive smoke up to the ceiling where the smoke
detector is usually located. For this reason, there may be large delays in
detecting a smoldering fire with either an ionization-type detector or a
photoelectric-type detector. Either one of them may alarm only after
flaming has initiated, which will generate the heat needed to drive the
smoke to the ceiling.
Smoke from fires in chimneys, in walls, on roofs, or on the other side of
a closed door may not reach the smoke detector and alarm it. A detector
cannot quickly detect, or sense at all, a fire developing on another level
of a building. Alarm warning devices, such as bell or horns, may not alert
people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the other side of closed
or partly open doors, or on another level. Persons may not hear a
warning device over the noise levels of a radio, air conditioner or other
appliances, or traffic. For this reason, detectors shall be located on
every level and in every bedroom within a building. Alarm warning
devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people or waken
deep sleepers.
Smoke detectors shall be located in any room where an alarm
control is located, or in any room where alarm control connections
to an AC source or phone lines are made. If detectors are not so
located, a fire within any of these rooms could prevent the QED control
from reporting a fire.
Smoke detectors have sensing limitations, too. Ionization detectors
and photoelectronic detectors are required to pass fire tests of the
flaming and smoldering types. This is to ensure that both can detect a
wide range of fires. Ionization detectors offer a broad range of firesensing capability, but they are somewhat better at detecting fastflaming fires than slow-smoldering fires. Photoelectronic detectors sense
smoldering fires better than flaming fires, which have little, if any, visible
smoke. Because fires develop in different ways, and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type of detector is always best, and a given
detector may not always provide early warning of a specific type of fire.

Before installing detectors, please thoroughly read these installation instructions and Manual I56-407, Guide for Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors,
which provides detailed information on detector spacing, placement, zoning,
wiring, and special applications. Copies of this manual are available from
ADEMCO.
NOTICE: This manual should be left with the owner/user of this equipment.
IMPORTANT: This detector must be tested and maintained regularly following
NFPA 72 requirements. The detector should be cleaned at least once a year.
WARNING: Do not use the maintenance signal as an indication that the
detector has reached the limits of its nominal sensitivity range. Maintenance
only indicates that the detector may need cleaning or can no longer respond
to smoke and shall not be used as a sensitivity indicating means.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The 5808 photoelectronic smoke/heat detector with built-in wireless transmitter is intended for use with wireless alarm systems that support QED 5800
series devices. Refer to QED control communicator installation instructions
for compatibility. The 5808 smoke/heat detector can be used with 5881 series
(L, M, H) and 5881EH receivers for residential installations. The 5808 smoke/
heat detector can be used with the 5881EH receiver for commercial installations. The transmitter can send alarm, tamper, maintenance (when QED
control panels are equipped to process maintenance signals), and battery
condition messages to the QED system's receiver. The maintenance signal
will either indicate that the photo chamber requires cleaning or that the detector
can no longer respond to smoke and may need replacement. Refer to the
wireless system's instructions for the maximum number of transmitters that can
be supported.
The 5808 sounds its built-in horn when smoke reaches the detector (the
LED also flashes rapidly) or when the air temperature reaches 135° F (the
LED flashes normally, about once every 40 seconds). A message is also
sent to the wireless QED control panel and the smoke detector's ID number
is displayed at the console. The alarm message is transmitted every 4
seconds until the smoke condition has cleared and the detector has reset.
About 1 second after the horn stops, a RESTORE message is transmitted
to the QED control panel and the ID number can be cleared from the panel.
During normal, maintenance, and low battery conditions, the LED flashes
approximately once every 40 seconds.
BATTERY INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT
The 5808 is powered by two 3-volt CR123A or DL123A Lithium batteries
(included). The detector checks for low batteries at every normal LED flash.
If a low battery is detected, the transmitter sends a low battery message to
the QED control panel, which beeps and displays the detector's ID. This
condition will exist for a minimum of seven days, and then the detector's
horn will "chirp" about every 40 seconds. The batteries should be replaced
BEFORE the chirps begin. BE SURE TO REPLACE BOTH BATTERIES
WITH FRESH ONES.
AD300-00-00
To replace batteries:
1. Remove the detector from its mounting plate by twisting the detector counterclockwise. Remove batteries, if replacing, and dispose properly.
2. Install two new 3-volt CR123A Lithium batteries in the battery compartment. Follow the polarity diagram inside the compartment.
3. Reinstall the smoke detector onto the mounting plate by turning the
detector clockwise.
4. Test the detector as described in the TESTING TRANSMITTER SIGNAL section of this manual. The LED should flash about once every 40
seconds to indicate normal operation. If the batteries are not installed
correctly, the smoke detector will not operate and the batteries may be
damaged. If the detector does not appear to be sending a signal during
any of the tests, check for correct battery installation.

PROGRAMMING
The smoke detector’s ID must be enrolled in the QED control panel during
installation of the system. The QED control panel should be programmed
to enroll the 5808 as an “RF” unit (must be programmed as “supervised RF”
for UL installations). Put the QED control panel in the program
ming mode and perform the following:
With the QED control panel, program the detector as loop 1 and either
manually enter the serial number that is on the label of the 5808, or press
the test switch to cause a transmission. Additional transmissions will cause
the “Confirm” display to appear on the keypad display.
See the QED control unit’s installation instructions for further details.
