hi di wire's I'm Jorge from alarm grid today I'm gonna be showing you guys how to program in an FF 3:45 - and l5210 so for today's demonstration I actually have an elf 7000 which is the same exact process the only difference between the l7000 and the l5210 is that the l7000 has a slightly better display but everything else is exactly the same the same programming menus the same processes everything will be the exactly the same so today I have the 2gig FF 3:45 it's an encore fire fighter this is a listening device that can actually take over any of your hard-wired smokes or seal detectors remember this is a listening device so it actually listens for the temporal sound of a fire alarm or a smoke detector or a seal detector going off if you ever realized your smoke detector and seal detector sounds they do give off different noises so this FF 345 is actually programmed and designed to pick up and distinguish which one it's listening to now normally this FF 345 you want to install it about six inches from whatever smoke detector you want it to pick up on for most of you guys out there you have you may have hardwired smoke detectors either the high voltage ones that are wired it to the houses 120 or 110 AC or you may also have wired smoke detectors that are wired into an old wired system so with this device as long as you keep them connected and powered on and functioning you should be able to use this to take over your wired smoke detectors and learn them into at first let's say a wireless system the l5210 in this case the l7000 because that's what we're demonstrating on today this will also work with any system that has a 345 megahertz receiver so if you have an L 5100 if you have a if you have a wired alarm system with a wireless receiver that's Honeywell the lyric alarm system a 2gig alarm system two gigs also works with Honeywell sensors if you have a cautious with the Honeywell daughterboard card built into it that is also one of the panels you can use it with it's the IQ 2 plus you just have to make sure you have the one with the Honeywell daughterboard card built into it now this like I said transmits at a 345 megahertz frequency so your panel just needs to have that receiver they also make this in three 19.5 so if you have an inner logics simon xt xt IX TI 5 if you have a normal IQ 2 IQ one or if you don't have the IQ 2 plus that has the honey water board card you can always use the version that comes in three nineteen point five right so we have a three three forty five and a three nineteen point five today we're demonstrating the three forty five because that's the one that works with my Honeywell system my aka l5210 but really it's in l7000 right so the first thing I'm gonna go to go ahead and do since its new out of the box I'm gonna go and take the sensor out it does come with a battery this is a cr123a lithium battery it's cylindrical shape so if you guys have one and need a new battery just take the old battery out go to your hardware store and find one that matches and purchase it and install it it comes with a back plate tamper plate we won't be using this today but this is when you mount it if somebody takes it off and this is installed onto it it rips off and it lets the back tamper know that somebody messed with your device and that'll cause a trouble on your alarm system I'm gonna leave this in the box for now really what I want to go ahead and do and start is start opening up the the sensor itself I just want to go ahead and get a quick zoom in because this sensor actually does smoke & Co if you look at the back at the sticker you'll see the bottom two lines one says SM Sierra Mary that stands for smoke the other one says Co that's for the carbon monoxide so as you notice while looking at the back of the sensor they both pretty much had the same serial number the only number that changed was the last number and it's usually changed by digit so the last number for the CEO goes up one digit higher than the one for smoke and you'll see that when we go to auto enroll it are we normally recommend Auto enrollment just so that there's no user error while you're typing in a number you accidentally press another one we've seen it happen plenty of times where you enter in the correct number or your eyes didn't do you so well and you enter in the wrong number so make sure that whenever you're doing this I'll show you guys how to do the auto enrollments that that's the way that you guys do it so the first thing we're going to need to do is there's a little side cover right here that we need to pop off so if you actually just let me pop it back on there's a little button here that you press in it releases the releases the latch and then you can take the cover right off pretty simple to do pretty easy pretty easy to take apart the battery can only go installed one way so negative side to a little spring and as soon as we power it on the light starts blinking now this little silver tab right here is a tamper so we don't want to learn the sensor in by that there's a little black button right here so while while we're zoomed in to the circuit board here again you're gonna see the sticker up at the very top it'll say SM for the smoke that'll be the serial number and Co for the CE ozone and again that's the serial number for the carbon monoxide as you can see like I said before it's only one digit difference towards the end now if you were if you're looking at the zoomed in image here right next to that little gray flap silver aluminum flap there's a little button that's underneath the sticker it's a little black button and that'll be our auto-enrollment button that we're gonna press to enroll the sensor into our panel if we're gonna go ahead and start learning it in a single press and release will actually learn it in for smoke but if you press and hold it for about two to three seconds then then release it that'll learn it in for Co I'll show you guys right now so first thing we're gonna do starting at the home screen on your l5210 or your l7000 technically we're gonna go to security we're gonna hit more we're gonna go to tools' here's where you enter in your installer code - four one one two from there I'm gonna go into program now if you weren't taken to this screen it's because you don't have the correct installer code so make sure you you get taken to this screen and you hit program the installer code mine is defaulted which is why it's four one one two but yours could have been changed so after we go into programming we're gonna go into zones we are learning in a wire to the sensor so it's a wireless zone and we're gonna hit add new from adding you we're gonna hit serial number and now the panel is in listening mode this is where we're gonna go ahead and grab the device we're gonna press and release the button and the panel will do a small little beep all right not sure if you guys heard that but I'll press it one more time again just press and release don't hold it down because then it'll be a confused for Co so I just push release and now you'll see it actually auto populated that serial number zero seven six five two six zero which matches the smoke serial number on there remember we're learning in smoke it's a press and release the co is hold down and release and when you hold down is like two to three seconds and I'm gonna learn it one more time to confirm it so press and release boom the panel acknowledges it leave the loop number as one we're gonna leave the zone description as a back and all I'm gonna do is I'm gonna switch the device type I'm gonna set it to smoke detecter you want obviously if you're being monitored you want to make sure the alarm report is set to yes you want to make sure the sensor is supervised the fire no verification or fire with verification that means fire no verification as soon as this sensor goes off the alarm gets sent immediately letting the panel letting your Central Station know there's a fire alarm if you do fire with verification the sensor has to go off twice meaning that the smoke detector has to go off twice so it all depends on how you want to use it if you want an immediate alarm I would leave it as fire no verification I'm gonna go ahead and hit save and I've learned in my back smoke detector now I'm gonna go ahead and go into adding you again going into my serial number now I'm gonna show you guys how to learn in Co you have to press and hold the button down for two to three seconds so I'm gonna press and hold down this little button one two three release it the panel beeps I'm gonna do this again one two three release now if you see the second time it starts populating the second co number zero seven six five two six one it's no longer the zero at the end that means we're holding the button down long enough now we're gonna do it one more time one two three release and it'll confirm everything yep I'm gonna go ahead and switch to zone description I'll switch it to let's say back I'll put the window - I'll put the device type again this is gonna be my CO detector carbon monoxide alarm report obviously set - yes you want to make sure if you're being monitored that the central station is receiving the CL signal and supervised supervision supervised response type it's only gonna stay US carbon monoxide there's no verification or non verification there leave the loop number as one and then you hit save now we have a back smoke detector back carbon monoxide detector we can go ahead and put the cover back on put the back on first yes so clip everything into place first and then you can put the front cover back on and it'll just snap shut whoops sorry back on first close it now it's tight the cover doesn't come off you're gonna mount it up wherever you want it to go and you can go ahead and test it by setting off a smoke alarm and the sensor should pick up on on the on the sound of the smoke or the CO and then your panel will go off make sure if you guys are testing that you have your account on test mode if you guys are testing the OL detectors and you don't place your account on test and you are being monitored the fire department will be sent out because Co whenever it goes off fire department is always dispatched no matter what you cannot call and cancel a fire department dispatching when there's a co alarm because these are gases that are undetectable so if one of them happens to go off procedure is to always go out and make sure everything is ok so that's pretty much how to program in your FF 3:45 to an l5210 today we demonstrated it on an L 7000 but if you guys have any questions whatsoever feel free to send us an email to support at alarm care comm
