Networking smoke alarm devices
What do I need to network my smoke alarm devices?
Smoke alarm devices, item no. 2336 02, can be networked via cables (2x2x0.8 mm) or via the wireless module, item no. 2347 00.
Smoke alarm device (VdS)/alarm triggering
How much smoke needs to be in the smoke chamber of the smoke alarm device before an alarm is triggered?
The smoke alarm device triggers in line with the VdS once the smoke chamber contains between 1.03% and 1.59% smoke.
Wireless module for modular and Dual smoke alarm devices/teaching in wireless receivers
Does each wireless module need to be taught in to a wireless receiver if multiple modular/VdS smoke alarm devices are networked via wireless modules?
Each wireless module must be taught into a wireless receiver if the receiver is to react to the module. For this, you will require a compatible smoke alarm device that allows wireless module installation.
Modular/VdS smoke alarm device/muting during ongoing alarm
How do you mute an alarm that has been triggered?
Smoke alarm devices used individually: Identify the smoke alarm device that triggered the alarm. The smoke alarm device that detected the fire will have a red flashing LED as well as emitting an audible signal. Remove the battery from the smoke alarm device. This mutes the smoke alarm device.
Networked smoke alarm devices (wired or via wireless module): Identify the smoke alarm device that triggered the alarm. The smoke alarm device that detected the fire will have a red flashing LED as well as emitting an audible signal. Remove the battery from this smoke alarm device. This mutes both this device and all the smoke alarm devices networked with it.
Dual Q smoke alarm device signal tone
My smoke alarm device is emitting a signal tone. What does that mean?
If you decide to use a wireless module (which is optional), you must first check whether the smoke alarm device is sending the signal and not the wireless module. A signal from a smoke alarm device can have many causes. You can find the possible causes for error in the operating instructions here under Operating and alarm signals.
