BATTERY INSTALLATION AND REPLACEMENT
To replace the battery:
1. Remove the detector from its mounting base by twisting the
detector counterclockwise. Remove the battery and dispose of
2. To ensure proper power-down sequence, wait a minimum of 20
seconds before installing new battery.
3. Install a new 3-volt CR123A Lithium battery in the battery
compartment. Follow the polarity diagram inside the
4. Reinstall the detector onto the mounting base by turning the
5. Test the detector as described in the TESTING SIGNAL
STRENGTH section of this manual. The green LED should blink
about once every 10 seconds to indicate normal operation. If the
battery is not installed correctly, the detector will not operate and
the battery may be damaged. If the detector does not appear to be
sending a signal during any of the tests, check for correct battery
installation and for a fully charged battery.

The detector must be enrolled in the control panel before it can
operate in the system. Alarms and trouble conditions from the
detector are reported on one protection zone, which is programmed as
carbon monoxide zone type (zone type 14 for Honeywell residential
Events reported include the following:
armed = CO Alarm
1. Enter the control's Zone Programming mode.
2. Enter the alarm zone number to be programmed.
3. Enter the applicable zone type when prompted. Use zone type 14
for Honeywell residential controls.
4. When prompted, enter Input Type 03 (3 on some controls) –
Supervised RF Transmitter.
5. When prompted for the serial number, do the following:
a. Remove the detector from its base (rotate the detector counter-
clockwise on the base until it snaps open).
NOTE: Detector must be removed from the base to enroll.
b. Press the detector's Test button twice (for each press, hold the
button down several seconds).
c. Reinstall the detector on its base (twist clockwise until the
detector snaps into place).
d. Check that the detector is enrolled as loop 1.
Exit Programming mode when programming is complete, and
test the detector. Refer to the Testing Section.
See the control unit's installation instructions for more details.

MOUNTING THE DETECTOR
First, determine the best location for the detector, one that provides
proper carbon monoxide detection (see Figure 4 for suggested
detection locations) and a strong wireless transmission path.
Proper Carbon Monoxide Detection Location
In a wall location, the detector should be at least as high as a light
switch, and at least six inches from the ceiling. In a ceiling location,
the detector should be at least 12 inches from any wall.
Where to install, ideally:
• Within 10 feet of all sleeping areas
• Inside the bedroom if it contains a fuel burning appliance
• On every floor of the building
• Ideally, install in any room that contains a fuel burning appliance
• If the appliance in the room is not normally used, such as the
boiler room, the detector should be placed just outside the room so
the alarm can be heard more easily
Where NOT to install, ideally:
• Detectors operate best if not installed within 10 feet of any cooking
• Directly above a sink, cooker, stove or oven
• Next to a door or window that would be affected by drafts i.e.
extractor fan or air vent
• Do not install in any environment that does not comply with the
detector's environmental specifications
• In or below a cupboard
• Where air flow would be obstructed by curtains or furniture
• Where dirt or dust could collect and block the sensor
• Where it could be knocked, damaged, or inadvertently removed
Good Transmission Path
A GOOD TRANSMISSION PATH MUST BE ESTABLISHED FROM
THE PROPOSED MOUNTING LOCATION BEFORE
PERMANENTLY INSTALLING THE DETECTOR. To check,
perform the test described in the TESTING SIGNAL STRENGTH
section. Prior to mounting the detector to the mounting base, you
must "enroll" the detector's serial number into the system (see the
Once a suitable location is found, mount the detector as follows:
1. Refer to the diagram below and install the mounting base on the
ceiling or on the wall (if local ordinances permit) using screw
locations "A" or "B" as required. Use the two screws and anchors
provided. Maneuver the base so the screws are at the elbow of the
screw slots and secure.
2. Fit the detector inside the base by aligning it over the base as
shown (detector's alignment notch should be slightly offset from
mounting base tamper release tab), then turn the detector in a
clockwise direction until it clicks into place.
3. Test the detector after completing the installation (as described
in the TESTING THE DETECTOR section of this manual) and
refer to the control system's instructions for additional
information concerning the use of wireless devices.
