hi diy-ers this is michael from alarm grid and today i'm going to be showing you how to open up the honeywell 6 combo combination smoke detector heat detector and carbon monoxide co detector uh before i get into the reasons why you would be opening the sensor i'm just going to quickly show you how to do it um so you have the sensor against the wall or the ceiling against its back plate it's the back plate right there but to simulate my hand will represent the wall and we're pressing it against the wall and so it's pressed against the back plate and we can just twist it counter-clockwise and then that separates the back cover from the sensor and then to close it you just have to properly align it we're gonna silence that real quick you will get a tamper cover when you open up your sensors so we'll enter in our master code we'll just put that into programming so it stops but that's that's how you open it you press it against the wall or the ceiling the back plate and you twist it counterclockwise and then to close you have to properly align it if you're having trouble getting it i just like to go around until we get it to lay flat against the sensor um just where we get it properly aligns and light just like that and then we have it against the back plate like so press it against and we can well if it's not properly closed it's not properly aligned yet just got to get it right on there where it's flat there we go we're going to get that silenced and we're going to get this aligned sometimes it gets caught on things that's normal just keep going around until you get it in the right spots uh you can match up the spots but i just kind of do this and then there it's aligned and then we put it against the back plate and we turn it clockwise locks into place just like that um so that's how you you get it um to open counter clockwise close clockwise just like that um so the reasons you would be opening the sensor um it uses four cr123a batteries um that you would need to change periodically it has an average battery life of five years like i said it uses four of these batteries um it's recommended that you use lithium batteries for optimal battery life so that way you need to change the batteries less often i guess you would be opening the sensor if you were mounting it because you do see the screw holes um on there for mounting the sensor so that's the reason you might do it um there is the serial number inside the sensor so if you needed to verify the sensor then you would go in and um open up the sensor to see the serial number you can also go into uh the six programming mode if you have it already enrolled which we do we have our sensor right there and we can match the serial numbers on the lyric system if you want to do that um again you saw how we got the tamper cover when we opened up the sensor um you will get those for any zone that is programmed with the six combo and since it does smoke detection heat detection and co detection you'll get a tamper cover for each of the zones assuming that you have them all enabled on the sensor um you won't need to open up the sensor to um look at the led light uh this led light it's green it's useful for um enrolling the sensor when you're verifying enrollment uh when it's blinking quickly that means the sensor is uh not enrolled with with a lyric system uh when it is blinking slowly then it is enrolled so you can check this led light on the front of the sensor and you won't need to open up the sensor to get to it uh there are also the test buttons down here um again you don't need to open up the sensor to get to the test buttons just um you know press the buttons and then perform the test as as described remember to put your system on test mode before testing the sensor so that way you don't cause a false alarm on the system but again just to reiterate you have the sensor against the back plate whether this is the wall or a ceiling however you have it and you just twist the sensor counter clockwise and you look can open the sensor you see that it's open and align it i'm not going to pull it off again fully so that way we don't do it but you can see it's open it's aligned and then to close twist it clockwise just like that it'll lock into place and it'll stay closed so that's how you open up the honeywell six combo combination smoke detector heat detector and co detector you just press it against the back plate uh whether it's on the wall or the ceiling twist it counter clockwise you can separate it from the back plate then when you go to close it make sure it's properly aligned so it's it's flat all around the sensor and then twist clockwise to lock into place if you have any questions about the six combo or the honeywell lyric alarm system or
