Hush or Silence Feature
• This smoke alarm has a built-in Hush or Silence feature incorporated into the Test button.
• If cooking or other non-hazardous sources cause the alarm to sound, it can be temporarily silenced by pressing the Test/Hush button for 3 seconds.
The alarm then enters a dormant period for 10 minutes.
• After the 10 minute dormant period, the smoke alarm will resume normal operation.
Note: After the Test/Hush button has been pressed, wait 10 minutes before any additional testing is conducted to avoid any abnormal responses as the smoke alarm is not
sensitive to smoke during this period.
Testing
Test the smoke alarm once a month to ensure proper operation. Push the Test/Hush button for 3 seconds until the alarm sounds. If no alarm sounds, check the Troubleshooting table.
Always test the smoke alarm after cleaning. Alarms in mobile homes should be tested weekly or before each journey.
NOTE: If the house is unoccupied for more than a few days test the smoke alarm before resuming occupancy.

PRE-INSTALLATION CHECK
Recommended location of Smoke Alarms
• Ceiling mounting is required for residential dwellings. In mobile homes, wall mount on an inside partition to avoid the thermal barrier that may form in the ceiling.
• Only install smoke alarm indoors in a stand-alone or interconnected set up (max 40).
• When chosing a location for a smoke alarm, Figure A shows ideally a minimum of 30cm from a side wall and 30cm from any corner, avoiding dead air space.
• Ensure there are no obstructions in ceiling mounting locations, such as pipes or cables.
• Install smoke alarms closest to bedrooms and along exit paths from bedrooms. Locate alarms in each bedroom for additional protection as shown in Figures B & C. The minimum
protection recommended is also shown.
• Locate smoke alarms in stairways in multi-story dwellings, as shown in Figure C, with an alarm on every floor level.
• Use minimum cable width 1.0 mm2 for all wiring, including interconnect wiring.
Installation
• Locate a smoke alarm in any area where a smoker sleeps or where electrical appliances are used in bedrooms.
• Smoke, heat and other combustion materials rise to the ceiling and spread horizontally. Mount a smoke alarm in the centre of the ceiling placing it closest to all points in the room.

Avoid installing Smoke Alarms in these locations
2
1
• Within 1 metre of heating and cooling supply vents or within 1 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.
• In areas where the temperature may fall below 0 °C or rise above 45 °C. Smoke alarms are designed to operate only within these temperature ranges and failure to alarm, improper
alarms or nuisance alarms may result from operation outside these temperature limits.
90 mm
• In damp or very humid areas such as bathrooms or laundries, where the normal humidity may rise above 95%. Above this level, moisture may condense inside the smoke alarm and
cause false alarms. The smoke alarm may also become unstable below 5% relative humidity.
90mm
• In areas where particles of combustion are normally present, such as garages or kitchens, as this can cause false alarms.
• In dusty or dirty areas, as an accumulation of dust and dirt in the sensing chamber may block the openings and prevent an alarm, or may cause false alarms. If a smoke alarm is
required in such an area, vacuum it frequently and test it according to the ‘Test’ section of the front page of these instructions.
3
• Where bugs or insects are present. Attempt to eliminate or minimise the bugs or insects by vacuuming the smoke alar frequently as described in ‘Maintenance, Repairs and Service’
of these instructions.
10 mm
4
50 mm
• Within 1 metre of electrical noise sources, e.g. fluorescent lights, LED lights and fan motors. Electrical noise may cause nuisance alarms.
CAUTION
• A 9 V signal is applied to the interconnect wire (referenced to neutral) to alarm all
the other interconnected alarms.
EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION HAZARD
• The maximum wiring length is 150 m between smoke alarms.
