Fire saFeTY Tips

Follow safety rules and prevent hazardous situations:
1) Use smoking materials properly. Never smoke in bed. 2) Keep matches or
lighters away from children; 3) Store flammable materials in proper containers;
4) Keep electrical appliances in good condition and don’t overload electrical
circuits; 5) Keep stoves, barbecue grills, fireplaces and chimneys grease-
and debris-free; 6) Never leave anything cooking on the stove unattended;
7) Keep portable heaters and open flames, like candles, away from flammable
materials; 8) Don’t let rubbish accumulate.
Keep alarms clean, and test them weekly. Replace alarms immediately if they
are not working properly. Smoke Alarms that do not work cannot alert you to a
fire. Keep at least one working fire extinguisher on every floor, and an additional
one in the kitchen. Have fire escape ladders or other reliable means of escape
from an upper floor in case stairs are blocked.

Important! Read “Recommended Locations for Smoke Alarms” and
“Locations to Avoid for Smoke Alarms” before beginning. This unit monitors
the air, and when smoke reaches its sensing chamber, it alarms. It can give
you more time to escape before fire spreads. This unit can ONLY give an
early warning of developing fires if it is installed, maintained and located
where smoke can reach it, and where all residents can hear it, as described
in this manual. This unit will not sense gas, heat, or flame. It cannot prevent
or extinguish fires.
Understand The Different Type of Smoke Alarms
Battery powered or electrical? Different Smoke Alarms provide different
types of protection. See “About Smoke Alarms” for details.
Know Where To Install Your Smoke Alarms
Fire Safety Professionals recommend at least one Smoke Alarm on every
level of your home, in every bedroom, and in every bedroom hallway or
separate sleeping area. See “Recommended Locations For Smoke Alarms”
and “Locations To Avoid For Smoke Alarms” for details.
Know What Smoke Alarms Can and Can’t Do
A Smoke Alarm can help alert you to fire, giving you precious time to
escape. It can only sound an alarm once smoke reaches the sensor.
See “Limitations of Smoke Alarms” for details.
Check Your Local Building Codes
This Smoke Alarm is designed to be used in a typical single-family home.
It alone will not meet requirements for boarding houses, apartment buildings,
hotels or motels. See “Special Compliance Considerations” for details.

*All First Alert
Smoke Alarms conform to regulatory requirements,
including UL217 and are designed to detect particles of combustion.
Smoke particles of varying number and size are produced in all fires.
Ionization technology is generally more sensitive than photoelectric
technology at detecting small particles, which tend to be produced in
greater amounts by flaming fires, which consume combustible materials
rapidly and spread quickly. Sources of these fires may include paper burning
in a wastebasket, or a grease fire in the kitchen.
Photoelectric technology is generally more sensitive than ionization
technology at detecting large particles, which tend to be produced
in greater amounts by smoldering fires, which may smolder for hours
before bursting into flame. Sources of these fires may include cigarettes
burning in couches or bedding.
For maximum protection, use both types of Smoke Alarms on each
level and in every bedroom of your home.

loCaTions To aVoid For sMoke alarMs

For best performance, it is recommended you AVOID installing Smoke
Alarms in these areas:
Where combustion particles are produced. Combustion particles form
when something burns. Areas to avoid include poorly ventilated kitchens,
garages, and furnace rooms. Keep units at least 20 feet (6 meters) from
the sources of combustion particles (stove, furnace, water heater, space
heater) if possible. In areas where a 20-foot (6-meter) distance is not
possible – in modular, mobile, or smaller homes, for example – it is
recommended the Smoke Alarm be placed as far from these fuel-burning
sources as possible. The placement recommendations are intended to
keep these Alarms at a reasonable distance from a fuel-burning source,
and thus reduce “unwanted” alarms. Unwanted alarms can occur if a
Smoke Alarm is placed directly next to a fuel-burning source. Ventilate
these areas as much as possible.
In air streams near kitchens. Air currents can draw cooking smoke into
the sensing chamber of a Smoke Alarm near the kitchen.
In very damp, humid or steamy areas, or directly near bathrooms with
showers. Keep units at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from showers,
saunas, dishwashers, etc.
Where the temperatures are regularly below 40˚ F (4.4˚ C) or above 100˚ F
(37.8˚ C), including unheated buildings, outdoor rooms, porches, or
unfinished attics or basements.
In very dusty, dirty, or greasy areas. Do not install a Smoke Alarm directly
over the stove or range. Keep laundry room Smoke Alarms free of dust or
Near fresh air vents, ceiling fans, or in very drafty areas. Drafts can blow
smoke away from the unit, preventing it from reaching the sensing
In insect infested areas. Insects can clog openings to the sensing
chamber and cause unwanted alarms.
Less than 12 inches (305mm) away from fluorescent lights.
Electrical “noise” can interfere with the sensor.
In “dead air” spaces. “Dead air” spaces may prevent smoke from
reaching the Smoke Alarm.
Avoiding Dead Air Spaces
“Dead air” spaces may prevent smoke from reaching the Smoke Alarm.
To avoid dead air spaces, follow the installation recommendations below.
On ceilings, install Smoke Alarms as close to the center of the ceiling as
possible. If this is not possible, install the Smoke Alarm at least 4 inches
(102 mm) from the wall or corner.
For wall mounting (if allowed by building codes), the top edge of Smoke
Alarms should be placed between 4 and 12 inches (102 and 305 mm) from
the wall/ceiling line, below typical “dead air” spaces.
On a peaked, gabled, or cathedral ceiling, install the first Smoke Alarm
within 3 feet (0.9 meters) of the peak of the ceiling, measured horizontally.
Additional Smoke Alarms may be required depending on the length, angle,
etc. of the ceiling’s slope. Refer to NFPA 72 for details on requirements for
sloped or peaked ceilings.

liMiTaTions oF sMoke alarMs

Smoke Alarms have played a key role in reducing deaths resulting from home
fires worldwide. However, like any warning device, Smoke Alarms can only
work if they are properly located, installed, and maintained, and if smoke
reaches them. They are not foolproof.
Smoke alarms may not waken all individuals. Practice the escape plan
at least twice a year, making sure that everyone is involved – from kids to
grandparents. Allow children to master fire escape planning and practice
before holding a fire drill at night when they are sleeping. If children or others
do not readily waken to the sound of the smoke alarm, or if there are infants
or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is
assigned to assist them in fire drill and in the event of an emergency. It is
recommended that you hold a fire drill while family members are sleeping
in order to determine their response to the sound of the smoke alarm while
sleeping and to determine whether they may need assistance in the event
of an emergency.
Smoke Alarms cannot work without power. Battery operated units cannot
work if the batteries are missing, disconnected or dead, if the wrong type of
batteries are used, or if the batteries are not installed correctly. AC units
cannot work if the AC power is cut off for any reason (open fuse or circuit
breaker, failure along a power line or at a power station, electrical fire that
burns the electrical wires, etc.). If you are concerned about the limitations
of battery or AC power, install both types of units.
Smoke Alarms cannot detect fires if the smoke does not reach them.
Smoke from fires in chimneys or walls, on roofs, or on the other side of
closed doors may not reach the sensing chamber and set off the alarm.
That is why one unit should be installed inside each bedroom or sleeping
area—especially if bedroom or sleeping area doors are closed at night—and
in the hallway between them.
Smoke Alarms may not detect fire on another floor or area of the home.
For example, a stand-alone unit on the second floor may not detect smoke
from a basement fire until the fire spreads. This may not give you enough
time to escape safely. That is why recommended minimum protection is at
least one unit in every sleeping area, and every bedroom on every level of
your home. Even with a unit on every floor, stand-alone units may not provide
as much protection as interconnected units, especially if the fire starts in a
remote area. Some safety experts recommend installing interconnected
AC powered units with battery back-up (see “About Smoke Alarms”) or
professional fire detection systems, so if one unit senses smoke, all units
alarm. Interconnected units may provide earlier warning than stand-alone
units since all units alarm when one detects smoke.
Smoke Alarms may not be heard. Though the alarm horn in this unit meets
or exceeds current standards, it may not be heard if: 1) the unit is located
a closed or partially closed door, 2) residents recently consumed
alcohol or drugs, 3) the alarm is drowned out by noise from stereo, TV, traffic,
air conditioner or other appliances, 4) residents are hearing impaired or sound
sleepers. Special purpose units, like those with visual and audible alarms,
should be installed for hearing impaired residents.
Smoke Alarms may not have time to alarm before the fire itself causes
the unit immediately. Examples of this include persons smoking in bed,
children playing with matches, or fires caused by violent explosions
resulting from escaping gas.
Smoke Alarms are not foolproof. Like any electronic device, Smoke Alarms
are made of components that can wear out or fail at any time. You must test
the unit weekly to ensure your continued protection. Smoke Alarms cannot
prevent or extinguish fires. They are not a substitute for property or life
Smoke Alarms have a limited life. The unit should be replaced immediately
if it is not operating properly. You should always replace a Smoke Alarm
after 10 years from date of purchase. Write the purchase date on the space
provided on back of unit.

speCial CoMplianCe ConsideraTions

This Smoke Alarm is suitable for use in apartments, condominiums,
townhouses, hospitals, day care facilities, health care facilities, boarding
houses, group homes and dormitories provided a primary fire detection
system already exists to meet fire detection requirements in common areas
lobbies, hallways, or porches. Using this Smoke Alarm in common areas
may not provide sufficient warning to all residents or meet local fire
protection ordinances/regulations.
This Smoke Alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete fire
detection systems in places housing many people—like apartment buildings,
condominiums, hotels, motels, dormitories, hospitals, health care facilities,
nursing homes, day care facilities, or group homes of any kind. It is not a
suitable substitute for complete fire detection systems in warehouses,
industrial facilities, commercial buildings, and special-purpose non-residential
buildings which require special fire detection and alarm systems. Depending
on the building codes in your area, this Smoke Alarm may be used to provide
additional protection in these facilities.
In new construction, most building codes require the use of AC or AC/DC
powered Smoke Alarms only. In existing construction, AC, AC/DC, or DC
powered Smoke Alarms can be used as specified by local building codes.
Refer to NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code) and NFPA 101
(Life Safety Code), local building codes, or consult your Fire Department for
detailed fire protection requirements in buildings not defined as “households”.
HUD MAP Program
Certain HUD battery powered Smoke Alarm applications, especially those
that fall under HUD 223(f) MAP (Multi-family Accelerated Processing), may
require a 10 Year sealed tamper resistant battery. This alarm does not meet
that requirement. Substitute First Alert SA340B.

“quasi sine wave” inverters will damage the Alarm. If you are not sure about
your inverter or UPS type, please consult with the manufacturer to verify.
Smoke Alarms for the hearing impaired: Special purpose Smoke Alarms
should be installed for the hearing impaired. They include a visual alarm and
an audible alarm horn, and meet the requirements of the Americans With
Disabilities Act. Can be interconnected so if one unit senses smoke, all units
Smoke alarms are not to be used with detector guards unless the
combination has been evaluated and found suitable for that purpose.
All these Smoke Alarms are designed to provide early warning of fires if located,
installed and cared for as described in the user’s manual, and if smoke reaches
them. If you are unsure which type of Smoke Alarm to install, refer to Chapter
2 of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 72 (National
Fire Alarm and Signaling Code) and NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code). National
Fire Protection Association, One Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269-9101.
Local building codes may also require specific units in new construction or in
different areas of the home.

WhaT To do in Case oF Fire

Don’t panic; stay calm. Follow your family escape plan.
Get out of the house as quickly as possible. Don’t stop to get dressed or
collect anything.
Feel doors with the back of your hand before opening them. If a door
is cool, open it slowly. Don’t open a hot door. Keep doors and windows
closed, unless you must escape through them.
Cover your nose and mouth with a cloth (preferably damp). Take short,
shallow breaths.
Meet at your planned meeting place outside your home, and do a head
count to make sure everybody got out safely.
Call the Fire Department as soon as possible from outside. Give your
address, then your name.
Never go back inside a burning building for any reason.
Contact your Fire Department for ideas on making your home safer.
Alarms have various limitations. See “Limitations of Smoke Alarms” for

Using The silenCe FeaTUre

The Silence Feature can temporarily quiet an unwanted alarm for up to

the cover. If the unit will not silence and no heavy smoke is present, or if
it stays in silence mode continuously, it should be replaced immediately.
The LED will continue to flash rapidly while in silence.
The Silence Feature does not disable the unit—it makes it temporarily
less sensitive to smoke. For your safety, if smoke around the unit is
dense enough to suggest a potentially dangerous situation, the unit will
stay in alarm or may re-alarm quickly. If you do not know the source of
the smoke, do not assume it is an unwanted alarm. Not responding to

Wireless operaTion

First Alert
WIRELESS INTERCONNECT Technology is the easy, cost-
effective way to provide your family with whole-home safety. All WIRELESS
INTERCONNECT Alarms communicate with each other without wires or
connectors. When one Alarm sounds, they all sound. This provides your family
with an earlier warning of potential danger, and gives you more time to react.
The communication distance (range) between any two WIRELESS
INTERCONNECT Alarms is typically 50 feet (15 meters) inside of a home.
Some features of a home, such as the number of floors, number/size of
rooms, furniture and types of building materials used may reduce the range
of the Alarms. Examples include: suspended ceilings, ductwork, large
metallic appliances (refrigerators) and metal studs. A feature of WIRELESS
INTERCONNECT Alarms is that they operate as a mesh network. All
Alarms will repeat any alarm signal that is received to all other WIRELESS
INTERCONNECT Alarms. Interference from structural conditions can be
overcome by adding additional Alarms to route the wireless signal around

Smoke Alarms may not operate properly because of dead, missing or weak
batteries, a build-up of dirt, dust or grease on the Smoke Alarm cover, or
installation in an improper location. Clean the Smoke Alarm as described
in “Regular Maintenance,” and install a fresh battery, then test the Smoke
Alarm again. If it fails to test properly when you use the test button, or if
the problem persists, replace the Smoke Alarm immediately.

Installing Smoke Alarms in Single-Family Residences
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), recommends one Smoke
Alarm on every floor, in every sleeping area, and in every bedroom. In new
construction, the Smoke Alarms must be AC powered and interconnected.
See “Agency Placement Recommendations” for details. For additional
coverage, it is recommended that you install a Smoke Alarm in all rooms,
storage areas, finished attics, and basements, where temperatures normally
remain between 40˚ F (4.4˚ C) and 100˚ F (37.8˚ C). Make sure no door or
other obstruction could keep smoke from reaching the Smoke Alarms.
More specifically, install Smoke Alarms:
On every level of your home, including finished attics and basements.
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 40 feet (12 meters) long, install
an alarm at each end.
At the top of the first-to-second floor stairway, and at bottom of basement
Specific requirements for Smoke Alarm installation vary from state to state
and from region to region. Check with your local Fire Department for current
requirements in your area. It is recommended AC or AC/DC units be
interconnected for added protection.

laTChing FeaTUres

Alarm Latch is activated after an Alarm is exposed to alarm levels of smoke.
After smoke levels drop below alarm levels, the “Smoke” Red LED will begin to
flash On for 2 seconds/Off for 2 seconds. It will continue to flash or “latch” for
about 15 minutes, to give you time to determine which unit initiated the alarm.
Low Battery Latch is activated when the Alarm is in the “low battery condition”.
When this occurs, the Power LED flashes Green On for 2 seconds/Off for 2
seconds for about 15 minutes. This feature is designed to help you identify
which Alarm needs to have the battery replaced. Although, the Alarm will
sound the low battery chirp approximately once every minute, sometimes
during the initial stages of “low battery”, the Alarm will chirp in greater
intervals than one minute, sometimes up to several hours, until the battery
reaches a steady low battery level. This innovative feature eliminates the
frustration of waiting for and/or identifying which unit is chirping.
