In the event of accidental triggering or a system fault

Follow the instructions below to reset the fire alarms in the event of accidental triggering due to smoke from the open fire in the lounge, smoke from birthday candles or burning toast etc.

1.       Go to the Fire Alarm Control Panel by the back door from the kitchen to the outside

2.       Look at the indicator lights to see if it says Fire or Fault – if its Fire look at which area is showing Fire – This should be the same as the area you suspect to be the problem – If not get out and ensure all the others in your party are also safely out of the house

3.       If the Fire indicator light is showing the area that you suspected then press Silence Alarms – There will be an audible sound and a light showing Fire

4.       Next check there is actually no fire and that there is just the expected source of smoke/heat

5.       Vent the room of smoke by opening windows and doors and wafting the sensor to clear it

6.       Return to the Fire Control Panel and press Reset – The audible warning should stop and Fire light should go out

7.       If the system fails to reset then repeat the process to ensure that the sensor/s are free of smoke
