How to wirelessly pair your smoke alarms

Step 1: Switch on the alarms by turning the lever on the back.

Step 2: Press and hold the test/hush button on one of the alarms until the green light flashes three times, then release. After you release, the red light flashes rapidly for one minute (this indicates now in pairing mode). Keep this ‘master’ alarm to one side as you will use it to end the pairing process.

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

Step 4: To end the pairing process, press the test/hush button again on the first ‘master’ alarm that you set aside in step two.

Step 5: Make a note which is the ‘master’ alarm with a pencil (either on the base or on top if you don’t mind seeing a marking). This way if you ever need to add another alarm, you can easily determine which alarm is the master and follow from Step 2 onwards to add the new alarm.

NOTE: If any alarm fails to pair, hold the test/hush button until the green light flashes 4 times, then release. After you release, the green light will flash 3 times to indicate it has been cleared successfully. Now you can repeat the pairing process for this alarm.
