2. APPLICATIONS
PRIMARY DIRECT AND INDIRECT VISIBLE SIGNAL
Locate the strobe light on the ceiling in the center of the room or on
the wall a minimum of 2 m (80") above the floor. For rooms larger than
250 sq. ft. (14 ft. by 16 ft. - 4.27m by 4.88 m) the notification device
should be located within 16 ft. (4.88m) of the pillow when located in a
sleeping area.
SUPPLEMENTARY VISIBLE SIGNAL
The strobe must be located more than 76 cm (30") above the floor.
3. RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS OF VISUAL SIGNALING DEVICES
• Locate the first strobe light in the bedroom in which the hearing impaired
individual sleeps. If the bedroom door is kept closed at night, an
interconnecting smoke detector must also be installed in that bedroom.
• Locate additional strobe lights in any lived-in room where a hearing impaired
individual would need to be notified of an alarm condition.
4. LOCATIONS TO AVOID
• In direct sunlight or high ambient light areas; the bright light may reduce one’s
ability to notice the strobe light.
• In areas where the temperature may fall below 0˚C (32˚F) or rise above 49˚C (120˚F).
• In areas with high humidity.
• Avoid outdoor locations (This device is not listed for outdoor use).

5. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
READ CAREFULLY – WIRING REQUIREMENTS
• This alarm should be installed on a CSA listed or recognized junction box. All
connections should be made by a qualified electrician and all wiring used shall
be in accordance with codes having jurisdiction in your area. The multiple
station interconnect wiring to the alarms must be run in the same raceway or
cable as the AC power wiring. In addition, the resistance of the interconnect
wiring shall be a maximum of 10 ohms.
• The appropriate power source is 110-130 Volts AC single phase supplied from
a non-switched circuit, which is not protected by a ground fault interrupter.
MODEL SLED177iCA WIRING INSTRUCTIONS USING AC QUICK CONNECT THREE
WIRE HARNESS.
WARNING: This alarm cannot be operated from power derived from a
square wave, modified square wave or modified sine wave inverter. These
type of inverters are sometimes used to supply power to the structure in off
grid installations, such as solar or wind derived power sources. These power
sources produce high peak voltages that will damage the strobe light.
CAUTION! TURN OFF THE MAIN POWER TO THE CIRCUIT BEFORE
WIRING THE STROBE LIGHT.
1. When Strobe lights and alarms are interconnected, all the interconnected
devices must be powered from the same circuit.
2. A maximum of 24 Kidde devices may be interconnected in a multiple station
arrangement. The interconnect system should not exceed the NFPA
interconnect limits of 12 smoke alarms and/or 18 alarms total (smoke, heat,
Carbon Monoxide, etc). With 18 interconnected alarms it is still possible to
interconnect up to a total of 6 remote signaling devices and/or relay modules.

3:21 PM
CAUTION! Early warning fire detection and visual notification is best
achieved by the installation of fire detection and visual notification equipment in
all rooms and areas of the household as follows:
A smoke alarm and visual notification device installed and interconnected in
each separate sleeping area, and visual notification equipment interconnected
with heat, smoke, or CO alarms in the living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens,
hallways, attics, furnace rooms, closets, utility storage rooms, and basements.
6. TESTING AND OPERATION
WARNING! THIS STROBE LIGHT IS EXTREMELY BRIGHT. DO NOT LOOK
DIRECTLY AT THE LIGHT WHEN THE LIGHT IS FLASHING.
TESTING: Push the test button on one of the interconnected alarms to activate
the test sequence for the alarm.
The controlling alarm will also send an activation signal through the
interconnecting wiring to the strobe light, and cause the strobe light to flash if
the strobe light and the interconnection wiring are working properly.
If no alarm sounds perform the maintenance steps in the alarm’s User Guide.
Check the operation of the strobe light by executing a test on another
interconnected alarm.
TEST THE STROBE LIGHT AND YOUR ALARMS WEEKLY TO ENSURE
PROPER OPERATION.
OPERATION: The strobe light is operating once AC power is applied, and testing
is complete. When the strobe light is activated by an interconnected alarm, it
will flash for as long as the controlling alarm remains active.
7. MAINTENANCE
STROBE LIGHT REMOVAL:
IF TAMPER RESIST PIN HAS BEEN USED, REFER TO “TAMPER RESIST LOCKING
PIN” IN SECTION (5) FOR PIN REMOVAL INSTRUCTIONS.

CLEANING YOUR STROBE LIGHT:
To clean your Strobe light remove it from the mounting plate and disconnect the
AC Quick Connect power harness as outlined in section 5.
You can clean dust from your strobe light by using a vacuum cleaner hose and
vacuuming around the cover and lens openings on the strobe light.
The outside of the strobe light can be wiped with a damp cloth.
AFTER CLEANING, REINSTALL YOUR STROBE LIGHT AND TEST YOUR
STROBE LIGHT BY ACTIVATING ONE OF THE INTERCONNECTED ALARMS.
8. LIMITATIONS OF ALARM CONTROLLED VISUAL SIGNALING
DEVICES
VISUAL SIGNALING DEVICES CAN PROVIDE EARLY WARNING TO HEARING
IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS AT A REASONABLE COST; HOWEVER, IN ORDER FOR THE
VISUAL SIGNALING DEVICE TO FUNCTION, IT MUST BE ACTIVATED BY AN
OPERATING ALARM. ALARMS CANNOT PROVIDE AN ACTIVATION SIGNAL TO THE
VISUAL SIGNALING DEVICE IF SMOKE, HEAT OR CARBON MONOXIDE DO NOT
REACH THE SPECIFIC ALARM. THEREFORE, ALARMS MAY NOT SENSE A
CONDITION ON A DIFFERENT FLOOR, OR ON THE OTHER SIDE OF A CLOSED DOOR.
ALARMS DO HAVE LIMITATIONS. AC POWERED ALARMS WILL NOT OPERATE IF AC
POWER HAS BEEN CUT OFF BY AN ELECTRICAL FIRE OR AN OPEN FUSE.
HOME EMERGENCIES DEVELOP IN DIFFERENT WAYS AND ARE OFTEN
UNPREDICTABLE. NO ONE TYPE OF CONTROLLING ALARM; HEAT, FIRE (IONIZATION
OR PHOTOELECTRIC) OR CARBON MONOXIDE IS ALWAYS BEST. FOR MAXIMUM
PROTECTION, ALARMS MUST BE INSTALLED IN EACH SLEEPING AREA, AND ON
EVERY LEVEL OF A HOME. ALARMS MUST BE INTERCONNECTED WITH EACH
OTHER AND THE SIGNALING DEVICES AND BE TESTED REGULARLY TO INSURE THE
ALARMS AND INTERCONNECTING CIRCUITS ARE IN GOOD OPERATING
CONDITION.
IN AN UNDERWRITERS LABORATORIES STUDY, THIS TYPE OF VISUAL SIGNALING
APPLIANCE WAS ONLY SUCCESSFUL IN WAKING 92% OF THE SLEEPING
RESPONDENTS.
HEARING IMPAIRED INDIVIDUALS MAY NOT SEE THE VISUAL WARNING DEVICE IF
WALLS, DOORS, DISTANCE, HIGH AMBIENT LIGHT, OR OTHER OBSTRUCTIONS
BLOCK THE STROBE LIGHT. IF THE STROBE LIGHT IS LOCATED OUTSIDE THE
BEDROOM OR ON A DIFFERENT FLOOR, IT WILL NOT WAKE UP A SOUND SLEEPER.
THE USE OF ALCOHOL OR DRUGS MAY ALSO IMPAIR ONES ABILITY TO RESPOND
TO THE VISUAL SIGNAL.
Page 10
1102-7202-00_RevA_SLED177iCA_MAN_EN:_
2013.6.3
3:21 PM
ALTHOUGH VISUAL SIGNALING DEVICES CAN HELP SAVE LIVES BY PROVIDING
AN EARLY WARNING OF AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, THEY ARE NOT A
SUBSTITUTE FOR AN INSURANCE POLICY. HOME OWNERS AND RENTERS
SHOULD HAVE ADEQUATE INSURANCE TO PROTECT THEIR LIVES AND
PROPERTY.
9. GOOD SAFETY HABITS
DEVELOP AND PRACTICE A PLAN OF ESCAPE
• Install and maintain Fire extinguishers on every level of the home and in the
kitchen, basement and garage. Know how to use a fire extinguisher prior to
an emergency.
• Make a floor plan indicating all doors and windows and at least two (2)
escape routes from each room. Second story 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 you all can meet if a fire occurs.
• Familiarize everyone with the sound of the smoke alarm and train them to
leave your home when they hear it.
• Practice a fire drill at least every six months, including fire drills at night.
Ensure that small children hear the alarm and wake when it sounds. They
must wake up in order to execute the escape plan. Practice allows all
occupants to test your plan before an emergency. You may not be able to
reach your children. It is important they know what to do.
• Current studies have shown smoke alarms and notification devices may not
awaken all sleeping individuals, and that it is the responsibility of individuals in
the household that are capable of assisting others to provide assistance to
those who may not be awakened by the alarm sound or notification device, or
to those who may be incapable of safely evacuating the area unassisted.
Page 11
1102-7202-00_RevA_SLED177iCA_MAN_EN:_
2013.6.3
3:21 PM
WHAT TO DO WHEN THE ALARM SOUNDS
• Alert small children in the home.
• Leave immediately by 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 your alternate exit. If the inside of the door is cool, place your shoulder
against it, open it slightly and be ready to slam it shut if heat and smoke rush
in.
• Stay close to the floor if the air is smoky. Breathe shallowly through a cloth,
wet if possible.
• Once outside, go to your selected meeting place and make sure everyone is
there.
• Call the fire department from your neighbor’s home - not from yours!
• Don’t return to your home until the fire officials say that it is all right to do so.
There are situations where a smoke alarm may not be effective to protect
against fire as stated in the NFPA Standard 72. For instance:
a) smoking in bed
b) leaving children home alone
c) cleaning with flammable liquids, such as gasoline
10. NFPA REQUIRED PROTECTION
For your information the National Fire Protection Association's Standard 72,
provides information regarding the fire detection equipment required within the
family living unit. And reads as follows:
Smoke Detection. Where required by applicable laws, codes, or standards for the
specified occupancy, approved single- and multiple-station smoke alarms shall be
installed as follows: (1) In all sleeping rooms. (2) Outside of each separate
sleeping area, in immediate vicinity of the sleeping rooms. (3) On each level of
the dwelling unit, including basements. Exception: In existing one- and twofamily dwelling units, approved smoke alarms powered by batteries are
permitted.
Page 12
1102-7202-00_RevA_SLED177iCA_MAN_EN:_
2013.6.3
3:21 PM
Smoke Detection - 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 the
smoke alarms in the kitchen, attic (finished or unfinished), or garage is normally
not recommended, as these locations occasionally experience conditions that
can result in improper operation.
This equipment should be installed in accordance with the National Fire
Protection Association’s Standard 72 (NFPA, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA
02269).
