nedis Smoke Detector - Product and user description

1. Test button / battery indicator
Testing the smoke alarm
Like any other electronic device, smoke alarms are not foolproof. Smoke alarms contain electronic components that can fail or wear out at any time.
We recommended that you test the smoke alarm every week to make sure it is working properly.
Push and hold the test button until the alarm sounds for a few seconds. If it does not sound, check if the battery indicator flashes once every 45 seconds. If this is not the case, replace the battery immediately.
Battery indicator
The battery indicator flashes every 45 seconds to show the smoke alarm is working properly. When the battery indicator flashes and gives a short beep sound, it is indicating that the battery has low capacity and should be replaced immediately.

2. Mounting plate

3. Mounting holes
Use the supplied screws and plugs to mount the mounting plate to the ceiling.

4. Remove the mounting plate
Turn the mounting plate of the smoke alarm counter- clockwise to get access to the battery compartment of the smoke alarm.

5. Battery compartment

6. Safety catch
The safety catch prevents the smoke alarm being returned to the mounting plate without inserting the battery first.

7. Battery connector
Take off the plastic seal of the battery and connect the battery with the battery connector. After placing the battery test the alarm with the test button to ensure it is working properly (see testing the smoke alarm).
When the mounting plate is mounted and the smoke alarm tested after inserting the battery, place the smoke alarm on the mounting plate by turning it clockwise.

Installation instructions

Install a smoke alarm in every room or area on every level of the home Smoke may not reach the smoke alarm if it is installed in only one room or area. If a fire starts in another room or area than where the smoke alarm is installed, the smoke alarm will not detect the smoke, or it will detect it too late. A smoke alarm will not promptly detect a fire except in the room or area in which it is installed. Place at least one smoke alarm in every room/area that is on your way from the bedroom to the front door.
It is recommended to make a flight plan and practice it with the household members in case of an emergency.
