  • Updated

Set up

  1. Determine where smoke sensors are to be installed
  2. Mount the bracket
  3. Include the device in Futurehome
  4. Test the device

Placement

When installing smoke sensors, it is important that they are placed/mounted in a way recommended by the manufacturer.

  1. Smoke sensors must be at least 0.5 meters from the wall and the top of the pitched roof & ventilation
  2. It is recommended to have one smoke sensor per 60m2 or one per eight meters in open areas.
  3. The alarm must be clearly audible in the living room and bedroom when the doors between the rooms are closed.
  4. Kitchen, living room, areas outside bedrooms and technical rooms should be covered.
  5. Do not place smoke sensors near the cooking area, ventilation or other exposed areas (min. 1.5 meters from ventilation).
  6. Avoid placement in places with a lot of water vapor, such as bathrooms.
  7. Do not place sensors in direct sunlight.

Installation

  1. Mount the bracket to the ceiling. Use a drill to make two holes for ceiling plugs.
    IMPORTANT: Use a vacuum cleaner to collect dust while drilling.
  2. Screw the bracket to the screw fitting
  3. Make sure the room is dust-free before switching on the sensor. Too much dust in the room can affect the first calibration.

Set up and inclusion

  1. Remove the battery cover.
  2. Insert the batteries.
  1. Select rooms on the smoke sensors via voice instructions. Press and hold the button until the correct room is read out, release the button to select a room. If the correct room does not match the room the device is placed in, you can choose the last room called "building".
