OPER
A
TION

The
FireFighter


sensor

is

designed

to
listen

to
any

smoke
, carbon or combo
detector.

Once

confirmed
as

an

alarm,

it

will

transmit

a
signal

to
the alarm
control

panel

which

if

connected to a central monitoring
station,

will

dispatch

the

fire

department.


ENROLLING


Follow the instructions provided by your control panel, or wireless receiver

manual. The 6 digit serial number is p
rinted on
back of each device.

To
monitor smoke alarms
, w
hen prompted by the panel, enter the 6 digit serial number as printed on the dev
ice. Use either zone type 88 ( S
tandard 24
hour fire) or type 87 (Delayed 24 h
our fire). Remember to set the wireless bit (bit 8) for that zone attribute.

To monitor a

CO detector, take the printed serial number and replace the first digit with an 8. For example if the number printed is 436A4
8, you would
use
8
36A48 as the serial num
ber for the CO portion. Use zone type 81 (24 hour Carbo
n

Monoxide).

Included

with

this
device

is

a mounting
bracket,

hardware

and

double

sided

tape.
To

ensure

proper
operation

ensure

the
side

of the
device

with

the
small

holes
is

directly

facing the
sounder

holes on the
smoke

detector.

Secure

the mounting
bracket

to the
wall

or ceiling using the
two
mounting screws

and

double

sided

tape
provided,
then

secure

the
audio

detector

to the mounting
bracket

using
the

small

screw

provid
ed.

The

FireFighter


must
be

mounting

within

6 inches

of

the
detector

for
optimal

operation.


***** It is possible that the sensor can hear other smoke detectors in close proximity so it is important to choose and to in
stall the sensor close to
a detector that is relatively isolated from other detector. It that is not possible, the sensor will stil
l function it will however take longer to register
and transmit to the panel. Smoke detector
s

to avoid are typically ones mounted in hallways outside of bedroom
s

that will also have additional
smoke detectors
.

WARNING:

Non
-
interconnected

smoke

detectors

require

an

audio

detector

by

each
smoke

detector

sounder.

This equipment should be installed in accordance with Chapter 2 of the National Fire Alarm Code, ANSI/NFPA 72, (National Fire

Protection
Association, Batterymarch Park, Quincy
, MA 02269). Printed information describing proper installation, operation, testing, maintenance,
evacuation planning, and repair service is to be provided with this equipment. Warning: Owner’s instruction notice: ’Not to b
e removed by
anyone except occupa
nt’.


TESTING

(
see

IMAGE:

1
)

To

test the RF transmission

from

the mounted
position

you

can

either generate

a tamper

by

removing

the cover or

press

the
learn
button

located
next to the tamper switch
.

Press and release ONCE to send a Smoke signal or press and HOLD for 2 seconds to send a Carbon signal.


Within the first hour of power up the sensor is in a test mode. This mode is designed to work with the test button of the smo
ke detector so that
only 1 or 2 temporal patterns is required to trigger the sensor. After the 1 hour has elapsed the sensor will r
equire at least 3 rounds of either
temporal 3 (smoke) or temporal 4 (CO) before it will send a transmission to the control panel. . Ensure the FireFighter™ cove
r is on and that you
wear hearing protection when doing the audio testing. Then simply

press

and

hold the
smoke

detector

test
button.


If 24 Hr, delay fire zone type is used the alarm must be active for 30 second before the panel will transmit to the Central S
tation.



NOTE:
This system must be checked by a qualified technician at least once
every three (3) years.

Please test the unit once per week to ensure proper
functionality.


Legacy Smoke Detectors

All Smoke detector should be replaced after 10 year. If you encounter a smoke detector that does not support Temporal 3 patte
rn, that smoke
should be replaced as per the manufacturer recommendation.

If replacement is not an option the FireFighter can be program to detect non
-
temporal detectors
.

**

In this mode, the sensor must not be located near any other audible device, like the security ke
yp
ad or sounder. Those can b
e misconstrued
as a valid smoke alarm.

To enter this mode press and hold the tamper button while inserting the battery. Release the tamper switch and note
the LED


ONE flash:
Only a
Temporal
3 and 4
signal will trigger an alarm

(Default)


TWO flashes: Generic listening mode.

(Will trigger after 30 seconds
of continuous
sound)



You can
verify the

mode
the device is in
by simply removing
the

battery and replacing it. The LED will fl
ash once or twice dep
ending on the
mode it is

in
.

Repeat the steps above to change the mode as required.


REPLACING THE BATTERY

When the battery is low a signal will be sent to the control panel. To replace the battery:

1.

Remove the top cover to reveal the battery. This will send a tamper signal to
the control panel.

2.

Replace with a Panasonic CR123A battery ensuring the + side of the battery faces as indicated on the device.
3.

Re
-
attach the cover, you should hear a click when the cover engages properly.

WARNING:

While the
audio

detector

monitors
its

own
battery,

it

does

not monitor the
battery

in

the
smoke

detectors.

Batteries

should

be

changed
as

per

the original

smoke

detector

manufacturer’s

instructions.

Always

test the
audio

detector

and

smoke

alarms
after

battery

installation

to confirm
proper
operation

The Firefighter™ detector does not detect the presence of smoke, heat, or fire directly. It relies solely on the presence of
an au
dio alarm signal generated by an
existing smoke or fire detector in proximity to the Firefighter™ detector to make such a determination. The Firefighter™ dete
ctor must be used with smoke detectors
certified according to UL Standards, and in strict accordan
ce with the installation and operation instructions provided with such detectors. It is the owner’s
responsibility to ensure that smoke or fire detectors used in conjunction with the Firefighter™ detector are maintained and t
ested on a regular basis in acc
ordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions. Encore Controls expressly disclaims any responsibility for the failure of the Firefigh
ter™ detector to detect the presence of
smoke or fire due to the failure of any smoke or fire detector used in conjunction
with the Firefighter™ detector to operate properly due to any condition, including
improper installation, operation, maintenance or testing of such smoke or fire detector
.
