The FireFighter sensor is designed to detect the alarm sounder of any modern smoke detector. Once confirmed as an alarm, it will transmit a signal to the Control Panel which, if connected to a central monitoring station, will dispatch the fire department.
Open the cover to the FireFighter detector by pressing the button on the side.
Install the battery provided, then replace the cover.
The FireFighter must be mounted within 6 inches of the smoke detector it is monitoring.
On one side of the FireFighter are a set of audio holes. These holes must face the smoke detector.
Secure the mounting bracket to the wall or the ceiling using the two mounting screws or double-sided tape provided.
Once the mounting bracket has been placed, reconnect the body of the FireFighter detector to the bracket.
Then secure the audio detector to the bracket using the small screw provided.
If your FireFighter hasn't been enrolled to your control system yet, follow the instructions below...
Programming The FireFighter To The IQ Panel
Make sure your system is disarmed during this process. Start by selecting “Settings”
Enter your “Installer Code”, in this case I’m going to use the default which is “1111”
Select “Security Sensors”
Select “Auto Learn Sensor”
At this point, you’ll need to tamper your sensor. To do this, start by removing the casing of the device by pushing-in the tab with a flat blade screwdriver.
Once it's open, the IQ Panel will beep and ask if you want to add the device to your sensor list. Select “OK”
Here you will need to program the proper information for this device.
- Sensor DL ID: Don't touch this option.
- Sensor Type: Select “Smoke Detector”
- Sensor Name: Select an appropriate name or create a "Custom Description"
- Chime Type: This allows you to apply a specific sound to your device when it’s used.
- Sensor Group: This is used to change the behavior of the device. Select 26.
- Voice Prompts: This allows you turn on or off the vocal chime.
When ready, select “Add New”
You are done programming the device. Test the FireFighter by removing the cover of the audio detector or by pressing the tamper button. This will display a tamper on the control system letting you know the device is communicating.
