How Do I Change the Batteries in a Honeywell SiXSIREN?
You can change the batteries in a Honeywell SiXSIREN by first removing the back over. From there, you must take out the old batteries and install the new ones. Then reapply the back cover to power the siren back on. The Honeywell SiXSIREN uses four lithium AA batteries for power.
The Honeywell SiXSIREN is a wireless siren that provides a loud audible sound for a second area of the property when a burglary or fire alarm occurs. The siren is designed exclusively for use with the Honeywell Lyric Controller, and it will not work with any other alarm system. If you have a different alarm control panel, then different wireless sirens are available.
The SiXSIREN can produce sounds of up to 85 dB. This is about as loud as a typical kitchen sink garbage disposal. This is also the same volume level as the internal sounder built into the actual Lyric Alarm Panel. As a result, adding a Honeywell SiXSIREN will not actually make the Lyric System louder. It is only useful for adding a siren to a second location of the property.
If you require a louder siren, then there are a few options available. A really simple and effective siren is the Qolsys IQ Z-Wave Siren. This siren can easily enroll with the Lyric System, and it can produce sounds of up to 105 dB. If you need an even louder siren, then you might want to consider going the hardwired route. This helpful FAQ can assist you with adding a wired siren.
As for the SiXSIREN, the device uses four lithium AA batteries, and it has an average battery life of five years. If you need to change the batteries, complete the following steps:
1. Remove from mounting base. The SiXSIREN is normally secured to its mounting base, which serves as the back cover. Press the SiXSIREN against the mounting base, and turn it counterclockwise. You should then be able to pull the device off and away from its mounting base.
2. Remove the old batteries. Take the old batteries out of the sensor, and discard them in a safe manner.
3. Install the new batteries. Take the four new batteries and install them inside the SiXSIREN. Make sure the batteries are facing the proper direction.
4. Secure to mounting base. Finish by pressing the SiXSIREN back against the mounting base. Make sure it is properly aligned. Then twist the sensor clockwise to secure it to the mounting base. Make sure it locks into place.
