Recommendations for Proper Protection
THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS FOR THE LOCATION OF FIRE
AND BURGLARY DETECTION DEVICES HELP PROVIDE PROPER
COVERAGE FOR THE PROTECTED PREMISES.
Recommendations for Smoke and Heat Detectors
Wi th regard to the number and pl acement of smoke/heat detectors,
we subscri be to the recommendati ons contai ned i n the Nati onal Fi re
Protecti on Associ ati on's (NFPA) Standard #72, noted bel ow.
Earl y-warni ng fi re detecti on i s best achi eved by the i nstal l ati on
of fi re detecti on equi pment i n al l rooms and areas of the
househol d as fol l ows: For mi ni mum protecti on, a smoke detector
shoul d be i nstal l ed outsi de of each separate sl eepi ng area, and
on each addi ti onal fl oor of a mul ti -fl oor fami l y l i vi ng uni t,
i ncl udi ng basements. The i nstal l ati on of smoke detectors i n
ki tchens, atti cs (fi ni shed or unfi ni shed), or i n garages i s not
normal l y recommended.
For addi ti onal protecti on, the NFPA recommends that you i nstal l
heat or smoke detectors i n the l i vi ng room, di ni ng room, bedroom(s),
ki tchen, hal l way(s), atti c, furnace room, uti l i ty and storage rooms,
basements, and attached garages.

In addition, we recommend the following:
I nstal l a smoke detector i nsi de every bedroom where a smoker
sl eeps.
I nstal l a smoke detector i nsi de every bedroom where someone
sl eeps wi th the door partl y or compl etel y cl osed. Smoke coul d be
bl ocked by the cl osed door. Al so, an al arm i n the hal l way outsi de
may not wake up the sl eeper i f the door i s cl osed.
I nstal l a smoke detector i nsi de bedrooms where el ectri cal
appl i ances (such as portabl e heaters, ai r condi ti oners, or
humi di fi ers) are used.
I nstal l a smoke detector at both ends of a hal l way i f the hal l way i s
more than 40 feet (12 meters) l ong.
I nstal l smoke detectors i n any room where an al arm control i s
l ocated, or i n any room where al arm control connecti ons to an AC
source or phone l i nes are made. I f detectors are not so l ocated, a fi re
wi thi n the room coul d prevent the control from reporti ng a fi re or
an i ntrusi on.
Recommendations for Proper Protection (cont'd)

Recommendations for Proper Intrusion Protection
For proper i ntrusi on coverage, sensors shoul d be l ocated at every
possi bl e poi nt of entry to a home or commerci al premi ses. Thi s
i ncl udes skyl i ghts and upper wi ndows i n a mul ti -l evel bui l di ng.
I n addi ti on, we recommend that radi o backup be used i n a securi ty
system so that al arm si gnal s can sti l l be sent to the al arm moni tori ng
stati on i n the event that the tel ephone l i nes are out of order (al arm
si gnal s are normal l y sent over the phone l i nes, i f connected to an
al arm moni tori ng stati on).

Emergency Evacuation
Establ i sh and regul arl y practi ce a pl an of escape i n the event of fi re. The fol l owi ng
steps are recommended by the Nati onal Fi re Protecti on Associ ati on:
1. Posi ti on your detector or your i nteri or and/or exteri or
sounders so that they can be heard by al l occupants.
2. Determi ne two means of escape from each room. One
path of escape shoul d l ead to the door that permi ts
normal exi t from the bui l di ng. The other shoul d be
an al ternati ve route, such as a wi ndow, shoul d your
pri mary escape path be i mpassabl e. Stati on an
escape l adder at such wi ndows i f there i s a l ong drop
to the ground.
3. Sketch a fl oor pl an of the bui l di ng. Show wi ndows,
doors, stai rs, and rooftops that can be used to escape.
I ndi cate escape routes for each room. Keep these
routes free from obstructi on and post copi es of the
escape routes i n every room.
4. Assure that al l bedroom doors are shut whi l e you are
asl eep. Thi s wi l l prevent deadl y smoke from enteri ng
whi l e you escape.
5. To determi ne whi ch escape path to use duri ng a fi re,
fi rst feel the door. I f i t i s hot, check your al ternate
escape route. I f the door i s cool , open i t cauti ousl y. Be
prepared to sl am the door i f smoke or heat rushes i n.
6. Where smoke i s present, crawl on the fl oor; do not
wal k upri ght. Smoke ri ses and may overcome you.
Cl earer ai r i s near the fl oor.
7. Escape qui ckl y; don't pani c.
8. Establ i sh a common meeti ng pl ace outdoors, away from your house, where
everyone can meet and then take steps to contact the authori ti es and account for
those mi ssi ng. Choose someone to assure that nobody returns to the house
many di e goi ng back.

Maintaining Your System
Taking Care of Your System
The components of your securi ty system are desi gned to be as
mai ntenance-free as possi bl e. However, to make sure that your
system i s i n rel i abl e worki ng condi ti on:
1. Test your system weekl y.
2. Test your system after any al arm occurs (see Testi ng the System
secti on).
Replacing Batteries in Wireless Sensors
Each wi rel ess sensor i n your system has a 9-vol t or 3-vol t battery. The
system detects a l ow battery i n any wi rel ess sensor, i ncl udi ng smoke
detectors, the opti onal personal emergency transmi tter, and the
opti onal portabl e wi rel ess keypad. (The system detects a l ow battery
i n a portabl e wi rel ess keypad as soon as one of i ts keys i s pressed, and
responds be di spl ayi ng 00 on the wi red keypad.)
Al kal i ne batteri es provi de a mi ni mum of 1 year of operati on, and i n
most uni ts and appl i cati ons, provi de 24 years of servi ce. Three-vol t
l i thi um batteri es provi de up to 4 or more years of operati on. Actual
battery l i fe depends on the envi ronment i n whi ch the sensor i s used,
the number of si gnal s that the transmi tter i n the sensor has to send,
and the speci fi c type of sensor. Factors such as humi di ty, hi gh or l ow
temperatures, or l arge swi ngs i n temperature may al l l ead to the
reducti on of actual battery l i fe i n an i nstal l ati on.
I f you have a l ow battery i n a wi rel ess sensor, the keypad di spl ays a
LOW BATTERY message. I n addi ti on, a battery-operated smoke
detector wi th a l ow battery emi ts a si ngl e "chi rp" sound
approxi matel y once every 2030 seconds, i denti fyi ng i tsel f as the
smoke detector wi th the weak battery.
NOTE: The LOW BATTERY message comes on as a warni ng that
battery repl acement i n the i ndi cated sensor(s) i s due wi thi n 30 days.
I n the meanti me, the sensor causi ng the l ow-battery i ndi cati on i s sti l l

Important: Use onl y batteri es recommended by your i nstal l er as
repl acement.
Silencing Low Battery Warning Tones at the Keypad
You can si l ence the keypads warni ng tones by pressi ng the
1
key,
OFF
but the keypad's LOW BATTERY message di spl ay wi l l remai n on as
a remi nder that you have a l ow-battery condi ti on i n one or more of
your sensors. When you repl ace the weak battery wi th a fresh one, the
sensor wi l l send a "good battery" si gnal to the control as soon as the
sensor i s acti vated (openi ng/cl osi ng of door, wi ndow, etc.), causi ng the
LOW BATTERY di spl ay to turn off. I f the sensor i s not acti vated, the
di spl ay wi l l automati cal l y cl ear wi thi n approxi matel y 1 hour.
Routine Care
Treat the components of your securi ty system as you woul d any
other el ectri cal equi pment. Do not sl am sensor-protected doors or
wi ndows.
Keep dust from accumul ati ng on the keypad and al l protecti ve
sensors, parti cul arl y on moti on sensors and smoke detectors.
The keypad and sensors shoul d be cl eaned careful l y wi th a dry soft
cl oth. Do not spray water or any other fl ui d on the uni ts.

WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
Whi l e thi s system i s an advanced desi gn securi ty system, i t does not offer guaranteed protecti on
agai nst burgl ary or fi re or other emergency. Any al arm system, whether commerci al or resi denti al , i s
subject to compromi se or fai l ure to warn for a vari ety of reasons. For exampl e:
I ntruders may gai n access through unprotected openi ngs or have the techni cal sophi sti cati on to
bypass an al arm sensor or di sconnect an al arm warni ng devi ce.
I ntrusi on detectors (e.g., passi ve i nfrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensi ng
devi ces wi l l not work wi thout power. Battery-operated devi ces wi l l not work wi thout batteri es,
wi th dead batteri es, or i f the batteri es are not put i n properl y. Devi ces powered sol el y by AC wi l l
not work i f thei r AC power suppl y i s cut off for any reason, however bri efl y.
Si gnal s sent by wi rel ess transmi tters may be bl ocked or refl ected by metal before they reach the
al arm recei ver. Even i f the si gnal path has been recentl y checked duri ng a weekl y test, bl ockage
can occur i f a metal object i s moved i nto the path.
A user may not be abl e to reach a pani c or emergency button qui ckl y enough.
Whi l e smoke detectors have pl ayed a key rol e i n reduci ng resi denti al fi re deaths i n the Uni ted
States, they may not acti vate or provi de earl y warni ng for a vari ety of reasons i n as many as 35%
of al l fi res, accordi ng to data publ i shed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some of
the reasons smoke detectors used i n conjuncti on wi th thi s System may not work are as fol l ows.
Smoke detectors may have been i mproperl y i nstal l ed and posi ti oned. Smoke detectors may not

CANADIAN DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATIONS (DOC)
STATEMENT
NOTICE
The Canadian Department of Communications label
identifies certified equipment. This certification means that
the equipment meets certain telecommunications network
protective, operational and safety requirements. The
Department does not guarantee the equipment will
operate to the user's satisfaction.
Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that
it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the
local telecommunications company. The equipment must
also be installed using an acceptable method of
connection. In some cases, the company's inside wiring
associated with a single-line individual service may be
extended by means of certified connector assembly
(telephone extension cord). The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above conditions may not
prevent degradation of service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by
the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user
to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give
the telecommunications company cause to request the
user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the
electrical ground connections of the power utility,
telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if
present, are connected together. This precaution may be
particularly important in rural areas.
Caution: Users should not attempt to make such
connections themselves, but should contact the
appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as
appropriate.
The Load Number (LN) assigned to each terminal device
denotes the percentage of the total load to be connected
to a telephone loop which is used by the device, to
prevent overloading. The termination on a loop may
consist of any combination of devices subject only to the
requirement that the total of the Load Numbers of all the
devices does not exceed 100.
AVIS
L'tiquette du ministre des Communications du Canada
identifie le matriel homologu. Cette tiquette certifie que
le matriel est conforme certaines normes de protection,
d'exploitation et de scurit des rseaux de
tlcommunications. Le ministre n'assure toutefois pas
que le matriel fonctionnera la satisfaction de
l'utilisateur.
Avant d'installer ce matriel, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer qu'il
est permis de le raccorder aux installations de l'entreprise
locale de tlcommunications. Le matriel doit galement
tre install en suivant une mthode accepte de
raccordement. Dans certains cas, les fils intrieurs de
l'entreprise utiliss pour un service individuel la ligne
unique peuvent tre prolongs au moyen d'un dispositif
homologu de raccordement (cordon prolongateur
tlphonique interne). L'abonn ne doit pas oublier qu'il
est possible que la conformit aux conditions nonces ci-
dessus n'empchet pas la dgradation du service dans
certaines situations. Actuellement, les entreprises de
tlcommunications ne permettent pas que l'on raccorde
leur matriel aux prises d'abonns, sauf dans les cas
precis prvus par les tarifs particuliers de ces entreprises.
Les rparations du matriel homologu doivent tre
effectues pas un centre d'entretien canadien autoris
dsign par le fournisseur. La compagnie de
tlcommunications peut demander l'utilisateur de
dbrancher un appareil la suite de rparations ou de
modifications effectues par l'utilisateur ou cause de
mauvais fonctionnement.
Pour sa propre protection, l'utilisateur doit s'assurer que
tous les fils de mise en terre de la source d'nergie
lectrique, des lignes tlphoniques de rseau de
conduites d'eau s'il y en a, soient raccords ensemble.
Cette prcaution est particulirement importante dans les
rgions rurales.
Avertissement: L'utilisateur ne doit pas tenter de faire
ces raccordements lui-mme il doit avoir recours un
service d'inspection des installations lectriques, ou un
lectricien, selon le cas.
L'indice de charge (IC) assign chaque dispositif
terminal pour viter toute surcharge indique le
pourcentage de la charge totale qui peut tre raccord
un circuit tlphonique boucl utilis par ce dispositif. La
terminaison du circuit boucl peut tre constitue de
n'importe quelle combinaison de dispositifs, pourvu que la
somme des indices de charge de l'ensemble des
dispositifs ne dpasse pas 100.
