FIRE ALARM SYSTEM (IF INSTALLED)
General Your fire alarm system (if installed) is on 24 hours a day, providing continuous protection. In the
event of an emergency, the installed smoke and heat detectors will automatically send signals to
your control, triggering a loud, “beeping” from keypads. A pulsed sound will also be produced
by optional exterior sounders and by any 2-way voice keypads in your system. A FIRE message
will also appear at your Keypad and remain on until you silence the alarm. In addition, a fire
message will be sent to your central monitoring station (if you have this service).
In Case Of Fire 1. Should you become aware of a fire emergency before your detectors sense the problem,
go to your nearest Keypad and manually initiate an alarm by pressing the panic key (or key
pair) assigned as FIRE emergency (if programmed by the installer) and hold down for at least
2 seconds (see
2. Evacuate all occupants from the premises.
3. If flames and/or smoke are present, leave the premises and notify your local Fire Department
4. If no flames or smoke are apparent, investigate the cause of the alarm. The zone descriptor
of the zone(s) in an alarm condition will appear at the Keypad.
Silencing A Fire Alarm 1. Silence the alarm by entering your code and pressing the OFF key. To clear the display,
enter your code and press the OFF key again.
2. If the Keypad does not indicate a READY condition after the second OFF sequence, press
the READY key to display the zone(s) that are faulted. Be sure to check that smoke
detectors are not responding to smoke or heat producing objects in their vicinity. If this is
the case, eliminate the source of heat or smoke.
3. If this does not remedy the problem, there may still be smoke in the detector. Clear it by
fanning the detector for about 30 seconds.
4. When the problem has been corrected, clear the display by entering your code and
pressing the OFF key.
