Setup & Install

Premier Range Smoke Alarm 5 or 10 Pack Bundles

If you purchased a 5-pack or 10-pack bundle, the alarms and remote control will arrive to you already interconnected together in the box – no need to pair them up as we have done this for you!

Simply switch them on, perform a test, and then they are good to go! Watch the short video below.


Adding additional alarms

If you would like to an add additional alarm(s) to an existing group, please watch this video and follow the instructions below;

Step 1: Choose any alarm from the already existing group and put it into pairing mode. To do this, hold down the test button on the alarm until the green light flashes three times, then release the button. After you release, the red light flashes rapidly for one minute – this indicates now in pairing mode and waiting to receive new alarms to the group. You have a one minute time window (whilst the red light remains flashing) to add new alarms to the group.

Step 2: Proceed to the new alarm you would like to add to the group and hold down the test button on it until the green light flashes twice, then release the button. The red light will now slowly flash three times on this alarm to indicate it has been successfully added to the group. Repeat this step for any further additional alarms you would like to add to the group.

Step 3: Return to the same first alarm from step 1 and exit pairing mode by pressing the test button on it once. The red flashing light should now stop which indicates pairing mode has ended.

Step 4: Perform a test by pressing the test button once on any alarm to ensure the new alarm(s) have been successfully added to the group.


Setting up a new group

If you are setting up a completely new network for the first time, please watch this video and follow the steps below;

Step 1: Ensure all the alarms are switched on by turning the rear lever into the fully on position.

Step 2: Choose one alarm to be the ‘master’. Press and hold the test button on it until the green light flashes three times, then release the button. After you release, the red light flashes rapidly for one minute – this indicates now in pairing mode. You will have a one minute time window whilst the red light remains flashing to pair the other ‘student’ alarms to this ‘master’.

Step 3: Hold the test button on the next alarm until the green light flashes twice, then release the button. After you release, the red light will flash slowly three times to indicate successful pairing to the ‘master’. Repeat step 3 with all other ‘student’ alarms.

Step 4: To pair the optional remote control device to the network, hold down the test button on the remote control until its red light flashes twice, and then release. After you release, the red light on the remote will flash slowly three times to indicate successful pairing.

Step 5: To end the pairing process, return to the nominated ‘master’ alarm and press the test button once. The red light should cease flashing which indicates pairing mode has ended.

Step 6: Check the alarms have been interconnected successfully by pressing the test button either on the remote control or the alarms themselves. It may take up to 10 seconds for all alarms to activate – this is normal.


Helpful Hints

– The ‘master’ alarm will  automatically exit pairing mode after one minute (indicated when its red light stops flashing). If this occurs and you still have more alarms to pair to the network, simply re-start pairing mode on the ‘master’ again, and then continue pairing the remaining ‘student’ alarms (i.e. there is no need to start over from scratch pairing all the alarms again).

– An alarm cannot be paired to two different network groups concurrently. If an alarm has already been paired with one network, it will reject any attempt to pair it to a new network.  To overcome this perform a factory reset on the alarm. To perform a factory reset hold down the test button on the alarm until the green light flashes four times, then release the button. The green light will now slowly flash three times to indicate a successful factory reset.


Troubleshooting Guide

PROBLEM: Remote control light does not activate (no power).

SOLUTION (1): The battery in your remote control contains an insulation tab. This insulation tab must be removed prior to first use.

SOLUTION (2): Replace the remote control battery with a new one.

PROBLEM: The remote control fails to activate any alarms when the test button on it is pressed.

SOLUTION: The remote control may not have been paired successfully to the network. Perform a factory reset of the remote control by holding the test button on it until its red light flashes four times, and then release. After you release, the red light on the remote control will flash slowly three times to indicate it has been successfully reset. Now attempt to interconnect the remote control to the network again.

PROBLEM: Cannot connect an alarm to the network – when attempting to do so the alarm gives four quick red flashes. The video below shows what this error signal looks like.

Error indication when pairing Premier Range (alarm is already connected to a different network)

SOLUTION: This indicates that the alarm has already been connected to a different network. Alarms can only be connected to one network at a time. Perform a factory reset of the alarm and then attempt to pair it to the network again.

To factory reset an alarm, hold the test button on the alarm until the green light flashes four times, then release. After you release, the green light will flash slowly three times to indicate it has been reset successfully. The video below shows how to perform a factory reset.
