• Test Switch – use to test the Smoke/Heat Alarms remotely.
1. Press the TEST switch
Now check all the alarms sound and the red lights
on the covers flash rapidly. Then turn off the TEST
WARNING: For use only with the following models:
Smoke/Heat/CO Alarms - Ei161RC, Ei164RC, Ei166RC, Ei261ENRC, Ei261DENRC
Ancillary Devices - Ei128RBU, Ei169/160, MCP401RC
DO NOT use any other models with this system remote control
This is equivalent to pressing the test button on all
alarms simultaneously.
The Remote Control is recommended for use in
systems comprising of three or more
interconnected Smoke/Heat Alarms.
It also checks that the remote control is receiving
mains power.
The Remote Control should be wall mounted at
standard light switch level to allow easy access.
2. If the alarms do not sound
Check for the green mains light on the front cover
of the alarms.
If all alarms do not have the green mains light on,
check fuses, circuit breakers etc. (see Smoke/Heat
Alarm instructions for further details).

If alarms sound, press Locate to allow the source of alarm
to be identified audibly.
Press Hush to silence nuisance alarms.
Operate weekly to Test the alarms. Can also be used to
give a manual alarm
Test will not operate with mains absent.
Position the Remote Control in a location that will allow it
to be easily accessed. In the majority of installations this
will be in a hallway, possibly next to the master bedroom.
It should be installed at the standard light switch height.
The Remote Control can be surface mounted using the
mounting box provided or alternatively it can be
recessed into a standard back-box (not included).
If a metal back-box is used it must have a minimum depth of 35mm.
Up to four Ei1529RC System Remote Controls can be used in a system.

WARNING: This Remote Control should be installed by a qualified electrician in
accordance with the Regulations for Electrical Installations published by the
Institute of Electrical Engineers (as BS7671:2001).
1. Disconnect the AC mains power supply from the circuit that is going to be
used to power the Smoke/Heat Alarms and the Remote Control.
2. Locate and install the Smoke/Heat Alarms as per the ‘Installer Instructions’
included with the alarms.
3. Select a suitable location for the Remote Control as per the ‘SITING’ section
on page 1 of this leaflet.
4. Route the wiring (Live, Neutral, Interconnect/Control and Earth) to this point.
A minimum 0.75mm2 cable should be used.
5. Fix the mounting box provided to the wall for surface mounting or alternately,
fix a back box (not included) into the wall if recessed mounting is required.
6. Pass the wiring through an appropriate knockout in the mounting box or back-box.
7. Connect the wiring as shown in Figures 1 & 2 below.
(N.B. The Remote Control does not need to be earthed. However the terminal
marked with the earth symbol is provided for the convenience of the installer so that
any copper earth wire or cable coloured green & yellow, can be safely terminated).
Do not apply the high voltage insulation test to the wiring as all connected
units may be damaged. If it is necessary to check insulation, temporarily
remove all Smoke/Heat Alarms and the Ei1529RC switch.
If a metal back-box is used (for recessed mounting) it must have a minimum
depth of 35mm.
What to do when the Alarms go off
1.If there is a fire, immediately evacuate the premises and telephone the
fire brigade from outside.
2. When the alarms go off and the cause is not obvious, immediately press
the ‘Locate’ switch. This will silence all the alarms except those sensing
fire themselves.
3. Locate the alarm(s) sensing fire audibly. Be careful, check doors are not
warm and that there is no sign of smoke before you open them (See
escape plan in Smoke/Heat Alarm instructions for further details).
4. If you are fully satisfied that there is no fire, but the smoke/heat alarm is
still continuing to alarm then press the ‘Hush’ switch.
• Locate Switch – primarily used to identify the Smoke/Heat Alarm
sensing fire.
Figure 1
Ensure all wiring is correctly connected otherwise the Control Switch
and all connected units may be damaged.
When all the alarms are sounding due to a fire (or nuisance alarm):
Note: The Ei1529RC Remote Control can be
wired from any location within the system.
8. Fix the Remote Control to the mounting
box or back-box.
This is a very useful feature. For example, consider twelve alarms
sounding simultaneously, then the unit sensing the fire can be identified
audibly and the premises evacuated or the problem quickly resolved.
9. Reconnect the AC mains power to the
circuit and check that the green mains
indicator lights on the Smoke/Heat Alarms
are on.
10. Test the function of the Remote Control
as outlined in the ‘WEEKLY TESTING’
section on page 4 of this leaflet.
Press and release the spring loaded Locate switch. This will silence all the
alarms except those sensing fire.
• Hush Switch - used to silence nuisance alarms. This should only be
pressed after the Locate switch has been used to identify the smoke/heat
alarm that triggered the system, and it is determined that no fire is present.
Do not Hush the alarms unless you are sure there is no fire.
To Hush the alarms, press and release the Hush switch.
