This alarm is a smoke detector of the photo cell principle. This means that the alarm checks the air for smoke resulting from fire. It does not detect heat, gas or fire. If the smoke detector is properly mounted and maintained it will sound an alarm in as early stage. In the event of a fire this can give you those extra seconds needed to vacate your home and call the fire brigade. The alarm is designec to detect smoke. It cannot prevent a fire. It has got approved of BSI and CE.
The smoke detector works on one 9V DC battery. Normally the battery will last for at least one year under normal conditions of use. If the battery is empty or almost empty the smoke detector will indicate this with an audible “beep”. This indicator sounds continually with intervals of 30-40 seconds for at least 30 days. Replace the battey when this indicator is given. Please use 9V alkalescence DC batteries (type:6LR61) with high quality (Available from most department stores, DIY shops, electronic supply shops).Placing the battery is very simple: remove the mounting bracket on the backside and connect the battery.
Where is the best place to place the smoke detectors?
