- Flashing green every 12 seconds - Normal
- Red flash every 1 second - Alarm or Test
Sounder which generates the ANSI S3.41 temporal 3 pattern in an alarm condition.
The following three conditions will cause an error condition on the connected Smartscan Hydra controller (7 Beeps = Alarm Fault Apollo). Pressing the stop button on the controller will silence the chirps temporarily but be sure to address the error ASAP. If in doubt please contact your Accredited Reseller Installer:
- Flashing yellow every 4 seconds - Detector Trouble
Remove and reinsert the batteries to restart the alarm. If the error persists a replacement alarm will be needed.
- Flashing yellow every 8 seconds - Dirty Detector
The smoke sensing detector is dirty and cannot operate correctly, clean the detector with a vacuum cleaner.
- Flashing yellow every 12 seconds - Low Battery
The Wireless Smoke Heat Alarm is powered by 3 AAA Duracell Procell or 3 AAA Energizer E92 batteries (included). The detector regularly checks for a low battery. If a low battery is detected,
the transmitter sends a low battery message to the control panel, which displays the detector’s ID at low battery. In addition, the yellow LED of the detector will blink every 12 seconds. The detector’s sounder will chirp every 48 seconds (yellow LED continues to blink) until the batteries are replaced.
Pressing the hush button will silence the chirps for 12 hours, if no other trouble conditions exist. The batteries should be replaced WHEN the chirps begin. Be sure to replace the batteries with fresh ones.
IMPORTANT! Please note if you remove the Apollo wireless alarm from its base (8 Beeps = Wireless tamper alarm) or if its battery runs out (6 Beeps = Wireless alarm not broadcasting) you will cause the controller to enter a fault mode. See What do I do if Smartscan Hydra is beeping?
