INTRODUCTION 9000 SERIES
The 9123 & 9223 Series smoke alarm is a photoelectric type unit
for use as an evacuation device in residential and commercial
residential applications, while the 9120 & 9220 Series are for use as
an alert and relocate device. Each smoke alarm has a solid state
piezo signal to warn and alert the household to the presence of
Your photoelectric smoke alarm is designed to detect the smoke
that results from an actual fire. Consequently, it is uncommon for
household smoke such as cigarette smoke or normal cooking smoke
to cause an alarm.
BASIC SAFETY INFORMATION
Dangers, Warnings, Cautions and Notices alert you to important
operating procedures or to potentially hazardous situations. Pay
special attention to these items.
This photoelectric smoke alarm is listed for use in single-family and
multi-family residences, along with hotels, motels and other
commercial residential occupancies.
This photoelectric smoke alarm must receive continuous 120VAC,
60Hz , pure sine wave electrical power. (battery is meant for
emergency back-up only). In order for the emergency battery back-up
to work, a new battery must be properly installed (see BATTERY
NEVER ignore your smoke alarm if it sounds. Refer to IF YOUR
SMOKE ALARM SOUNDS section for more information. Failure to
do so can result in serious injury or death.
Test this device once a week per manufacturer installation
recommendation. If the device ever fails to test correctly, replace
immediately! If the device is not working properly, it can not alert you
to a problem.
This product is intended for use in indoor locations of family dwelling

HOW YOUR SMOKE ALARM WORKS
The 9000 Series smoke alarm operates on the photoelectric light
scatter principle. The unit's sensing chamber houses a light source
and a light sensor.
The darkened sensing chamber is exposed to the atmosphere and
designed to permit optimum smoke entry from any direction while
rejecting light from outside the smoke alarm.
The light source is an infrared (invisible) LED which pulses every 8
seconds. The light sensor is a photodiode matched to the light
frequency of the LED light source.
Under normal conditions, the light generated by the pulsing infrared
LED is not seen by the light sensor, as it is positioned out of the direct
path of the light beam. When smoke enters the sensing chamber, light
from the pulsing LED light source is reflected by the smoke particles
onto the photodiode light sensor. At the first sighting of smoke, the
device is put into a pre-alarm mode.
This is indicated by a rapidly flashing LED on the face of the smoke
alarm. Once the light sensor confirms smoke for 2 consecutive pulses
inside the chamber, the light sensor produces the signal necessary to
trigger the alarm and sound the electronic horn.
This technique of verifying the smoke condition, combined with a
5-to-1 signal-to-noise ratio, substantially reduces the possibility of
HOW TO TELL IF YOUR SMOKE ALARM IS
Your smoke alarm is provided with an alarm horn and pulsating
Light Emitting (indicator) Diode, which pulses every 30 seconds, and
a green AC power on LED.
When turning the test knob on the smoke alarm to TEST 1 the red
light emitting diode should flash rapidly and the horn should sound.
If the battery is low or missing, a chirp will be emitted when the red
LED flashes. If the smoke alarm is malfunctioning, the chirp will
sound between the red LED flashes. If AC power fails, the green
LED will turn off.
The test knob of your smoke alarm simulates actual smoke
NOTE: Tandem Interconnect Models.
When testing one smoke alarm, the device that is activated will flash
the red indicator light and sound its alarm horn. All other units will
sound the alarm horn with their red indicator lights remaining off.
The relays will also activate on all units in tandem on models
equipped with the relay option.
FIRE PROTECTION PLAN: WHAT YOU CAN DO TO
MAKE YOUR FAMILY SAFE FROM FIRES
This smoke alarm can quickly alert you to the presence of smoke; it
cannot prevent fire. The ultimate responsibility for fire protection rests
solely on you.
Installing smoke alarms is just the first step in protecting your family
from fires. You also must reduce the chances that fires will
