    Hi all,

    Looking at getting the above and installing it...

    Never done anything like that before regarding this product. How is it setup ? is it wired to a zone on the panel ? how is it setup ? is it always armed/set ?

    Any information greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    the wireless ones have built in speakers and they can all be triggered on the one alarm event so they all blare out.

    The hard wired ones do not have speakers, so you may want additional sounders in the home if you want to hear a fire event.

    as for wiring, there 6 terminals in the shallow base, you can wire normally closed/double pole or you can wire using resistors.

    You also need to turn on unarmed fire coms so the fire will sound even when its unset.

    The most important thing is to get the correct smoke head for the environment its going to be used in.

    Don't think unarmed Fire comms is anything to do with it sounding .... Only text messages/ other comms , you may have to enable fire sounds from speakers !

    wireless do wired not in the exhodus.

    if unarmed fire coms isn't turned on you will not fire tones unless the area the device is on is armed, at default the all the tones are on all devices for Area A.

    I will check an old system in a minute and a new one and tell you the outcome to confirm, but I am sure that has been the case for many many years.

    well done some test and had some interesting results, it made no difference turning off and on unarmed firecoms (except coms and external sounder, except on a new panel, and if the sounds didn't fire when it was unarmed turning it on made them work, but you could then turn them off again (quirk).

    The only reason I flagged it was the very first time I installed exodus smokes on a 48 they wouldn't sound when it wasn't armed, spoke to technical, turned it on in area options and it worked, it also sounds the external with that on.

    If it doesn't then turn it on, if it does don't worry about it unless you want it to ring outside bell/ send coms.
