IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
1 . This smoke alarm requires constant working 9-volt battery to operate properly. This smoke alarm WILL NOT work if DC
power is not connected or has failed or been interrupted for any reason AND the battery is removed, drained or improperly
connected. DO NOT use any other kind of battery except as specified. DO NOT connect this smoke alarm to any other type
of smoke alarm or auxiliary device. It is designed as a stand alone unit.
2 . DO NOT connect this smoke alarm to any other type of smoke alarm or auxiliary device, except those listed this manual.
The Test button accurately tests all smoke alarm functions. Do not use any other test method. Test smoke alarm weekly to
ensure proper operation.
3 . DO NOT remove or disconnect battery to quiet unwanted alarms. This will remove your protection. Open windows or fan
the air around smoke alarm to silence it.
4 . Observe and follow all local and national electrical and building codes for installation.
5 . This smoke alarm is designed to be used inside a single room only. In multi-room buildings, each individual living unit
should have its own smoke alarms. Do not install in non-residential buildings. And this smoke alarm is not a substitute for a
complete alarm system.
6 . Smoke may not reach the smoke alarm for many reasons. For example, if a fire starts in a remote part of the home, on
another level, in a chimney, wall, roof, or on the other side of a closed door, smoke may not reach the smoke alarm in time to
alert household members. A smoke alarm will not promptly detect a fire except in the area or room in which it is installed.
7 . Smoke alarms may not alert every household member every time. The alarm sound is loud in order to alert individuals to a
potential danger. However, there may be limiting circumstances where a household member may not hear the alarm (i.e.
outdoor or indoor noise, sound sleepers, drug or alcohol usage, the hard of hearing, etc.). If you suspect that this smoke alarm
may not alert a household member, install and maintain specialty smoke alarms. Household member must hear the alarm’s
warning sound and quickly respond to it to reduce the risk of damage, injury, or death that may result from fire. If a
household member is hearing impaired, install special smoke alarms with lights or vibrating devices to alert occupants.
8 . Smoke alarms can only sound their alarms when they detect smoke. Smoke alarms detect combustion particles in the air.
They do not sense heat, flame, or gas. This smoke alarm is designed to give audible warning of a developing fire. However,
many fires are fast-burning, explosive, or intentional. Others are caused by carelessness or safety hazards. Smoke may not
reach the smoke alarm QUICKLY ENOUGH to ensure safe escape.
9 . Smoke alarms have limitations. This smoke alarm is not foolproof and is not warranted to protect lives or property from fire.
Smoke alarms are not a substitute for insurance. Homeowners and renters are responsible for insuring their own lives and
property. In addition, it is possible for the smoke alarm to fail at any time. For this reason, you must test the smoke alarm
weekly and replace every 10 years.
RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS FOR SMOKE ALARMS
Installing Smoke Alarms in Single-Family Residences
Minimum coverage is one unit on every floor, in every sleeping area, or in every bedroom. For additional coverage, Orientalert
recommends you install units in all rooms, halls, storage areas, and finished attics, where temperatures normally remain
between 5℃ and 45℃.
More specifically, install Smoke Alarms:
On every level of your home, including finished attics.
Inside every bedroom, especially if people sleep with doors closed.
In the hall near every sleeping area. If your home has multiple sleeping areas, install a unit in each. If a hall is over 12 meters
(40feet) long, install an alarm at each end.
At the top of the first-to-second floor stairway.
IMPORTANT!
Specific requirements for Smoke Alarm installation vary from state to state. Check with your local Fire Brigade for current
requirements in your area.

IMPORTANT SMOKE ALARM PLACEMENT AND EXCEPTION INFORMATION
1. Install a smoke alarm as close to the center of the ceiling as possible. If this is not practical, mount no closer than 4 inches
from a wall or corner. Also, if local codes allow, install smoke alarms on walls, between 4 and 12 inches from ceiling/wall
intersections.
2. Install a minimum of two smoke alarms in every home, no matter how small the home.
3. Install a smoke alarm in each room that is divided by a partial wall (either coming down from the ceiling at least 8 inches, or
coming up from the floor).
4. Install a smoke alarm in lived-in attics or attics which house electrical equipment like furnaces, air conditioners, or heaters.
DO NOT INSTALL SMOKE ALARMS
ANYWHERE

HORIZONTAL DISTANCE
FROM PEAK
1. Near appliances or areas where normal combustion regularly occurs (kitchens, near furnaces, hot water heaters). Use
specialized smoke alarm with unwanted alarm control for this areas.
2. In areas with high humidity, like bathrooms or areas near dishwashers or washing machines. Install at least 10 feet away
from these areas.
3. Near air returns or heating and cooling supply vents. Install at least 3 feet away from these areas. The air could blow smoke
away from the detector, interrupting its alarm.
4. In rooms where temperatures may fall below 5℃ or rise above 45℃.
5. In extremely dusty, dirty, or insect-infested areas where loose particles interfere with smoke alarm operation.
WARNING:
Incorrect orientation will result in a decrease in operational effectiveness.
HOW TO INSTALL THIS SMOKE ALARM
WARNING:
Smoke alarm installation must be in accordance with the requirements of any
national code and any local codes that may apply.
1. Remove the mounting plate by turning counterclockwise at the back of the smoke alarm.
(To later engage tamper-resist feature, twist out and set aside one of the pins molded into plate.
Both pins are exactly the same.)
2. Install the mounting plate to ceiling or wall with mounting screws.
3. Lift open battery pocket door.
4. Connect new 9-volt battery to battery connector inside battery pocket. Be sure battery is securely connected. Red LED may
blink briefly when battery is installed.
5. Close battery pocket door, snapping it into place.
6. Position smoke alarm to mounting plate and turn clockwise to lock into place. To engage tamper-resist feature, insert pin into
notch on edge of smoke alarm after alarm is properly positioned in base.
7. Push test button to test smoke alarm. See TESTING THE SMOKE ALARM.
OPERATING YOUR SMOKE ALARM
Once the smoke alarm has been installed A RED indicator light (LED) should flash approximately once a minute to indicate the
battery is healthy and the unit is operating properly.
If smoke is detected, the unit will emit a load pulsating alarm and a RED indicator light (LED) will be flashing quickly until the
air is clear.
The “HUSH” feature can mute the detector if it has been advertently triggered by holding down the “TEST/HUSH” button for a
few seconds and then release it. The smoke alarm will be muted 10 minutes and then reset into normally mode after this period.
NOTE- If the smoke density increases during this time the smoke alarm will be triggered into alarm again.
TESTING THE SMOKE ALARM
1. Test each smoke alarm to be sure it is installed correctly and operating
properly.
2. The push-to-test button accurately tests functions. Do not use an open
flame to test this smoke alarm. You may ignite and damage the smoke
alarm or your home.
3. Test smoke alarms weekly and upon returning from vacation or when no
one has been in the household for several days.
4. Stand at arm’s length from the smoke alarm when testing.
TEST ALL SMOKE ALARMS WEEKLY BY DOING THE FOLLOWING:
1. Firmly push the TEST button, and the smoke alarm will sound a loud beep.
The alarm will stop sounding after releasing the TEST button.
2. If smoke alarm does not sound, please retest the smoke alarm.
DANGER:
If the alarm sounds, and smoke alarm is not being tested, the smoke alarm is sensing smoke. THE
SOUND OF THE ALARM HORN REQUIRES YOUR IMMEDIATE ATTENTION AND ACTION.
NUISANCE ALARMS
If there is a nuisance alarm simply press the test/hush button on the alarm to silence the unit for 10 minutes. If, when the alarm
goes off, there is no sign of smoke, heat or noise to indicate that there is a fire, you should get your family into a safe place,
before you start investigating.
Check the house carefully in case there is a small fire smoldering somewhere. Check whether there is some source of smoke or
fumes, for example cooking fumes being drawn past the smoke alarm by an extractor.
If there are frequent nuisance/false alarms it may be necessary to re-locate the device away from the source of the fumes. If for
some reason the alarm continues to sound without smoke or heat being present (due to insect infestation or contamination
build-up for example) the units can be silenced by disconnecting the mains power and removing the unit. If cleaning the alarm
does not correct the problem it can be returned to the manufacturer for repair or replacement.
HUSH FEATURE
All the smoke alarms have a combined Test/Hush button to help you control nuisance false alarms.
1. To cancel a false alarm, press the Test/Hush button located on the cover. The alarm will automatically switch to a reduced
sensitivity condition (very large levels of smoke from a nearby fire will override the Hush on the smoke alarms). This condition
allows unwanted alarms to be silenced for a period of approximately 10 minutes.
The unit will flash the red light every 10 seconds (instead of the normal 40 seconds) to indicate the sensitivity is reduced.
2. The unit will reset to normal sensitivity at the end of the silenced period. If additional silenced time is required, simply push
the Test/Hush button again.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
In addition to weekly testing, this smoke alarm requires yearly battery replacement and periodic cleaning to remove dust, dirt,
and debris.
BATTERY REPLACEMENT
Replace battery at least once a year or immediately when the low battery signal sounds once a minute. Batteries should be
replaced regularly as necessary.
WARNING: Do not use any other type of battery, other than as specified in this manual.
Do not use rechargeable batteries.
CAUTION:
If the battery is incorrectly replaced, the smoke alarm will not operate and may cause damage.
Please use high quality batteries to ensure long term performance.
1. Turn smoke alarm counterclockwise to detach it from the mounting plate.
2. Gently pull down smoke alarm.
3. Remove battery from the compartment.
4. Insert a new 9-volt battery to connector. NOTE POLARITY OF CONNECTIONS.
Ensure the metal tab is fully depressed when the battery has been fitted.
5. Using the Push-to-Test button, test the smoke alarm to verify 9V DC battery back-up.
See “TESTING THE SMOKE ALARM”
6. Reattach the smoke alarm to the mounting plate by turning smoke alarm clockwise until it snaps into place.
7. Test the smoke alarm using “Test” button. See “TESTING THE SMOKE ALARM”
CHOOSING A REPLACEMENT BATTERY:
The unit requires one standard 9V battery. The following batteries are acceptable as replacements:
Golden Power #6F22, Megaton #6F22; New Leader #6F22; Gold Peak #1604; Eveready #522, #1222;
Golden Power G6F22; Golden Power GL6F22A or equivalent quality model available from electrical
or hardware stores.
CLEANING
Clean the smoke alarm at least once a month to remove dust, dirt, or debris. Using the soft brush or wand
attachment to a vacuum cleaner, vacuum all sides and cover of smoke alarm. Be sure all the vents are free of
debris. If necessary, use a damp cloth to clean smoke alarm cover.
IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to remove the cover to clean inside the smoke alarm. This will void your
warranty.
PRACTICE FIRE SAFETY
If the smoke alarm sounds its alarm horn, and you have not pushed the test button, it is warning of a dangerous situation. Your
immediate response is necessary. To prepare for such occurrences, develop family escape plans, discuss them with all
household members, and practice them regularly.
1 Expose everyone to the sound of a smoke alarm and explain what the sound means.
2 Determine two exits from each room and an escape route to the outside from each exit.
3 Teach all household members to touch the door and use an alternate exit if the door is hot. Instruct them not to open the door
if the door is hot.
4 Teach household members to crawl along the floor to stay below dangerous smoke, fumes and gases.
5 Determine a safe meeting place for all members outside the building.
WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF FIRE
1 Do not panic; stay calm.
2 Leave the building as quickly as possible. Touch doors to feel if they are hot before opening them. Use an alternate exit if
necessary. Crawl along the floor, and do not stop to collect anything.
3 Meet at a pre-arranged meeting place outside the building.
4 Call the fire department from outside the building.
5 Do not go back inside a burning building. Wait for the fire department to arrive.
These guidelines will assist you in the event of a fire. However, to reduce the chance that fires will start, practice fire safety
rules and prevent hazardous situations.
