This device can be enrolled and programmed either
before or after installation.
1. Set the Lyric Controller in Programming Mode and go
to Zone Programming. Select Add New and then
2. Remove the battery tabs to activate the device and
begin the enrollment process.
3. The Green LED flashes rapidly during enrollment (up
to about 20 seconds*).

After enrolling, update the detector firmware (via the
Controller) to ensure the latest version is used. See the
NOTE: Once enrolled in a system, the detector cannot be used
with another controller until it is removed from the current
controller. See the Controller’s instructions for details.

• The detector sends its unique MAC ID (Serial
Number) and Services information to the controller.
• The controller registers the device and displays the
transmitter data on screen.
4. Enrollment is confirmed when the Green LED is ON
for 3 seconds and the device chirps.
5. Repeat the process, pressing the Test Switch to start
enrollment, and select Heat Sensor Device type to
enroll the heat sensor. The device will enroll the
same MAC ID in another Zone.
6. Press SAVE.
The device can also be manually enrolled. See the
Controller’s Programming Guide for details.
*NOTE: Enrollment time varies depending on the signal
strength between the device and the controller.
If the detector is not successfully enrolled during the
enrollment period, the LED turns off and the device
powers down. Activate the tamper or press the Test
switch to restart the enrollment process.
Smoke and Heat detector - Reports to panel:
• Smoke Alarm when smoke is detected
• Temperature Alarm when temperature of 135° F (57° C) or greater OR when there is a
temperature increase of 15° F (8.33° C) or greater within one minute
Percentage of obscuration (smoke or dirt in the detector)
Cover tamper: The 10 minute tamper timer is reset every time the tamper switch is closed and
opened or the detector cover is opened.
Supervision – 200 second check-in compatible
NOTE: If programmed in
the panel to operate in
one-go-all-go mode, all
programmed as one-goall-go in the system will
sound on alarm.
Refer to the System Smoke Detectors Application Guide (P/N
SPAG9101) and the Limitations of Fire Alarm Systems (P/N
800-15144) for detailed information on detector spacing,
placement zoning and special applications. Copies of this
document are available on https://mywebtech.honeywell.com/.
NOTE: Before mounting the detector permanently, conduct
Go/No Go tests (see control’s instructions) to verify adequate
signal strength and adjust the device location and orientation as
The detector can be mounted on the ceiling or on the wall (if
local ordinances permit). Select a location and mount using the
included mounting hardware.
The detector should be tested immediately after installation
and at least once a year.
Recommended: To prevent unwanted alarms, notify the
Central Station that the smoke detector system is undergoing
maintenance before testing begins.
Press for 3 seconds
Test Mode can be activated remotely from the Controller (see
the Controller’s manual), or on-site by pressing the test switch.
Tests and testing methods:
- Test Switch –
• press and release to check circuitry functionality;
• press and hold for 3 seconds to test the sounder (the
device will emit a temporal tone).
- Direct Heat Test (hair dryer)
- Smoke Entry Test (canned smoke*)
- Signal Strength (signal strength information is sent with
every communication to the panel.)
- Programmed Services [Loops].

LEDs and Sounder
The SIXSMOKE / SiXSMOKE-CN has one bi-colored LED and an 85dB
sounder. Refer to the following table for operation of these features.

Test mode is activated by the test switch or from
the panel. The detector is functioning properly
(within proper sensitivity).
If Test mode is activated and the LED and
Sounder do not function, check for maintenance
or trouble conditions.
The Heat alarm triggers when the device senses
heat of 135° F (57° C) or greater, or the
temperature rises 15° F (8.33° C) or more within 1
Recommended: Replace Battery before the
device starts chirping. The device starts chirping
after 7 days and continues until the batteries are
replaced or die. To quiet the sounder for 5
minutes, press the Test Switch (does not work
when set in one-go-all-go mode). See Battery
To silence the detector:
Press the test switch or disarm the
system at the controller. The detector
sounds again after 5 minutes if the
alarm condition continues. When
programmed in one-go-all-go mode, the
detector can only be silenced from the
The Maintenance type is reported by the
controller. See the Maintenance Section below for
Processing Controller queries
When testing, if the sensitivity is outside the proper range,
the detector will send a Trouble signal to the controller
through the Honeywell Interface module and the detector’s
red LED will flash every five seconds. The controller will
report a Low or High Maintenance message:
Low = Smoke head is dead and needs to be replaced.
High = Smoke head is dirty and needs to be cleaned.
Recommended: To prevent unwanted alarms, notify the
Central Station that the smoke detector system is
undergoing maintenance before cleaning the detector.
