The following steps provide a general guideline for programming (learning) the CO alarm
into control panel memory. Refer to the specific panel installation instructions for complete
To add the CO alarm to panel memory:
1) Make sure the CO alarm is unplugged.
The CO alarm must remain unplugged until step 6 of this procedure. Only within the first 67
seconds of power-up does the CO alarm transmit a signal that the panel can learn.
2) Set the panel to PROGRAM mode.
3) Proceed to the LEARN/ADD SENSORS menu.
4) When the panel prompts you for a sensor group number, enter the appropriate group
number based on the system panel. For Concord
all other GE Security panels, enter Group 29 (AUXILIARY).
5) Select the desired sensor number.
6) When the control panel prompts you for sensor activation, plug in the CO alarm and
wait five seconds for the unit to stabilize. Next, press and hold the test button for five to
seven seconds; the unit beeps, a red alarm light flashes, and a transmitter inside the CO
alarm transmits a Tamper/Alarm signal that the panel learns into memory.
