The green indicator will illuminate to show mains power is present, the red indicator will flash every 40 seconds to show that the detector has performed an automatic self test.

The red indicator will flash rapidly to show an alarm condition for the alarm that has triggered. The “Test/Hush” button will either silence false alarms (if briefly pressed) or to perform a self test (if pressed and held). In “Test” mode the alarm will perform a self test and sound the horn.

In “Hush” mode the alarm enters a ten-minute period of reduced sensitivity to overcome false alarm conditions. It will then automatically reset itself. When interconnected to other Ei mains powered alarms, an alarm on one detector will trigger all other interconnected alarms (only the triggered alarm will flash a red indicator) The smoke detector will emit a beep every 40 seconds to indicate that battery backup is depleted and requires attention.

Can be connected with the Ei166RC and Ei164RC products.
