Low Battery Information available via mobile app. Power Indicator and Night Light N/A White 5 Where to Install Minimum coverage for Smoke Alarms, as recommended by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), is one Smoke Alarm on every floor, in every sleeping area, and in every bedroom (See “Regulatory Information For Smoke Alarms” for details on the NFPA recommendations). For CO Alarms, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends that a CO Alarm should be centrally located outside of each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms. For added protection, install additional CO Alarms in each separate bedroom, and on every level of your home. NOTE: For added protection, install an additional Smoke/CO Alarm at least 15 feet (4.6 meters) away from the furnace or fuel burning heat source where possible. In smaller homes or in manufactured homes where this distance cannot be maintained, install the Alarm as far away as possible from the furnace or other fuel burning source. Installing the Alarm closer than 15 feet (4.6 meters) will not harm the Alarm, but may increase the frequency of unwanted alarms. In general, install combination Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms: • On every level of your home, including finished attics and basements. • Inside every bedroom, especially if people sleep with the door partly or completely closed. • In the hall near every sleeping area. If your home has multiple sleeping areas, install a unit in each. If a hall is more than 40 feet (12 meters) long, install a unit at each end. • At the top of first-to-second floor stairs. • At the bottom of the basement stairs. • For additional coverage, install Alarms in all rooms, halls, and storage areas, where temperatures normally remain between 40˚ F and 100˚ F (4.4˚ C and 37.8˚ C). Recommended Placement • When installing on the wall, the top edge of Smoke Alarms should be placed between 4 inches (102 mm) and 6 inches (153 mm) from the wall/ceiling line. • When installing on the ceiling, place the alarm as close to the center as possible. • In either case, install at least 4 inches (102 mm) from where the wall and ceiling meet. • See Avoiding “Dead Air” Spaces for more information. NOTE: For any location, make sure no door or other obstruction could keep carbon monoxide or smoke from reaching the Alarm. Installing Smoke/CO Alarms in Mobile Homes For minimum security install one Smoke/CO Alarm as close to each sleeping area as possible. For more security, put one unit in each room. Many older mobile homes (especially those built before 1978) have little or no insulation. If your mobile home is not well insulated, or if you are unsure of the amount of insulation, it is important to install units on inside walls only. 6

7 Where Not to Install Do NOT locate this Smoke/CO Alarm: • In garages, furnace rooms, crawl spaces and unfinished attics. Avoid extremely dusty, dirty or greasy areas. • Where combustion particles are produced. Combustion particles form when something burns. Areas to avoid include poorly ventilated kitchens, garages, and furnace rooms. Keep units at least 20 feet (6 meters) from the sources of combustion particles (stove, furnace, water heater, space heater) if possible. In areas where a 20 foot (6 meter) distance is not possible – in modular, mobile, or smaller homes, for example – it is recommended the Smoke Alarm be placed as far from these fuel-burning sources as possible. The placement recommendations are intended to keep these Alarms at a reasonable distance from a fuel-burning source, and thus reduce “unwanted” alarms. Unwanted alarms can occur if a Smoke Alarm is placed directly next to a fuel-burning source. Ventilate these areas as much as possible. • Within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of any cooking appliance. In air streams near kitchens. Air currents can draw cooking smoke into the smoke sensor and cause unwanted alarms. • In extremely humid areas. This Alarm should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a shower, sauna, humidifier, vaporizer, dishwasher, laundry room, utility room, or other source of high humidity. • In direct sunlight. • In turbulent air, near ceiling fans or open windows. Blowing air may prevent CO/smoke from reaching the sensors. • In areas where temperature is colder than 40˚ F (4.4˚C) or hotter than 100˚ F (37.8˚C). These areas include non air conditioned crawl spaces, unfinished attics, uninsulated or poorly insulated ceilings, porches, and garages. • In insect infested areas. Insects can clog the openings to sensing chamber. • Less than 12 inches (305 mm) away from fluorescent lights. Electrical “noise” can interfere with the sensor. • In “dead air” spaces. See below for additional information. Installing Smoke/CO Alarms in Mobile Homes “Dead air” spaces may prevent smoke from reaching the Smoke/CO Alarm. To avoid dead air spaces, follow installation recommendations below. • On ceilings, install Smoke/CO Alarms as close to the center of the ceiling as possible. If this is not possible, install the Smoke/CO Alarm at least 4 inches (102 mm) from the wall or corner. • For wall mounting (if allowed by building codes), the top edge of Smoke/CO Alarms should be placed between 4 inches (102 mm) and 6 inches (153 mm) from the wall/ceiling line, below typical “dead air” spaces. • On a peaked, gabled, or cathedral ceiling, install first Smoke/CO Alarm within 3 feet (0.9 meters) of the peak of the ceiling, measured horizontally. Additional Smoke/CO Alarms may be required depending on the length, angle, etc. of the ceiling’s slope. Refer to NFPA 72 for details on requirements for sloped or peaked ceilings. 8

All First Alert® Onelink® Smoke Alarms conform to regulatory requirements, including UL217 and are designed to detect particles of combustion. Smoke particles of varying number and size are produced in all fires. Ionization Technology Ionization technology is generally more sensitive than Photoelectric technology at detecting small particles, which tend to be produced in greater amounts by flaming fires, which consume combustible materials rapidly and spread quickly. Sources of these fires may include paper burning in a wastebasket, or a grease fire in the kitchen. Photoelectric Technology Photoelectric technology is generally more sensitive than ionization technology at detecting large particles, which tend to be produced in greater amounts by smoldering fires, which may smolder for hours before bursting into flame. Sources of these fires may include cigarettes burning in couches or bedding. NOTE: For maximum protection, use both types of Smoke Alarms on each level and in every bedroom of your home. Fire Safety Tips Follow safety rules and prevent hazardous situations: 1. Use smoking materials properly. Never smoke in bed. 2. Keep matches or lighters away from children. 3. Store flammable materials in proper containers. 4. Keep electrical appliances in good condition and don’t overload electrical circuits. 5. Keep stoves, barbecue grills, fireplaces and chimneys grease-free and debris-free. 6. Never leave anything cooking on the stove unattended. 7. Keep portable heaters and open flames, like candles, away from flammable materials. 8. Don’t let rubbish accumulate. 21 Fire Safety Tips (Continued) Basic Safety Information Keep alarms clean, and test them weekly. Replace alarms immediately if they are not working properly. Smoke alarms that do not work cannot alert you to a fire. Keep at least one working fire extinguisher on every floor, and an additional one in the kitchen. Have fire escape ladders or other reliable means of escape from an upper floor in case stairs are blocked. ! IMPORTANT: Dangers, Warnings and Cautions alert you to important operating instructions or to potentially hazardous situations. Pay special attention to these items. This Smoke/CO Alarm is approved for use in single-family residences. It is NOT designed for marine or RV use. ! CAUTION: This combination Smoke/Carbon Monoxide Alarm has two separate alarms. The CO Alarm is not designed to detect fire or any other gas. It will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide gas at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.

It is not designed to measure compliance with commercial and industrial standards. 22 What You Need to Know About CO What is CO? CO is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas produced when fossil fuels do not burn completely, or are exposed to heat (usually fire). Electrical appliances typically do not produce CO. These fuels include: Wood, coal, charcoal, oil, natural gas, gasoline, kerosene, and propane. Common appliances are often sources of CO. If they are not properly maintained, are improperly ventilated, or malfunction, CO levels can rise quickly. CO is a real danger now that homes are more energy efficient. “Air-tight” homes with added insulation, sealed windows, and other weatherproofing can “trap” CO inside. Symptoms of CO Poisoning The following symptoms may be related to CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING and should be discussed with ALL members of the household: Mild exposure: Headaches, running nose, sore eyes, often described as “flu”-like symptoms; Medium Exposure: Dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting; Extreme Exposure: : unconsciousness, brain damage, death. Many cases of reported CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING indicate that while victims are aware they are not well, they become so disoriented they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the building or calling for assistance. IMPORTANT: This CO Alarm measures exposure to CO over time. It alarms if CO levels are ! extremely high in a short period of time, or if CO levels reach a certain minimum over a long period of time. The CO Alarm generally sounds an alarm before the onset of symptoms in average, healthy adults. Why is this important? Because you need to be warned of a potential CO problem while you can still react in time. In many reported cases of CO exposure, victims may be aware that they are not feeling well, but become disoriented and can no longer react well enough to exit the building or get help. Also, young children and pets may be the first affected. The average healthy adult might not feel any symptoms when the CO Alarm sounds. However, people with cardiac or respiratory problems, infants, unborn babies, pregnant mothers, or elderly people can be more quickly and severely affected by CO. If you experience even mild symptoms of CO poisoning, consult your doctor immediately! Finding the Source of CO After an Alarm Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas, which often makes it difficult to locate the source of CO after an alarm. These are a few of the factors that can make it difficult to locate sources of CO: • House well ventilated before the investigator arrives. • Problem caused by “backdrafting.” • Transient CO problem caused by special circumstances. Because CO may dissipate by the time an investigator arrives, it may be difficult to locate the source of CO. BRK Brands, Inc. shall not be obligated to pay for any carbon monoxide investigation or service call. 23 Potential Sources of CO in the Home Fuel-Burning Appliances: Like portable heater, gas or wood burning fireplace, gas kitchen range or cooktop, gas clothes dryer. Damaged or Insufficient Venting: Corroded or disconnected water heater vent pipe, leaking chimney pipe or flue, or cracked heat exchanger, blocked or clogged chimney opening. Improper Use of Appliance/Device: Operating a barbecue grill or vehicle in an enclosed area (like a garage or screened porch). Transient CO Problems: “Transient” or on-again-off-again CO problems can be caused by outdoor conditions and other special circumstances. The following conditions can result in transient CO situations: 1. Excessive spillage or reverse venting of fuel appliances caused by outdoor conditions such as: • Wind direction and/or velocity, including high, gusty winds. Heavy air in the vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods between cycles). • Negative pressure differential resulting from the use of exhaust fans. • Several appliances running at the same time competing for limited fresh air. • Vent pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or water heaters. • Obstructions in or unconventional vent pipe designs which can amplify the above situations. 2. Extended operation of unvented fuel burning devices (range, oven, fireplace). 3. Temperature inversions, which can trap exhaust close to the ground. 4. Car idling in an open or closed attached garage, or near a home. These conditions are dangerous because they can trap exhaust in your home. Since these conditions can come and go, they are also hard to recreate during a CO investigation. 24 Potential Sources of CO in the Home (Continued) How Can I Protect My Family From CO Poisoning? A CO Alarm is an excellent means of protection. It monitors the air and sounds a loud alarm before Carbon Monoxide levels become threatening for average, healthy adults. A CO Alarm is not a substitute for proper maintenance of home appliances. To help prevent CO problems and reduce the risk of CO poisoning: • Clean chimneys and flues yearly. Keep them free of debris, leaves, and nests for proper air flow. Also, have a professional check for rust and corrosion, cracks, or separations. These conditions can prevent proper air movement and cause back-drafting. Never “cap” or cover a chimney in any way that would block air flow. • Test and maintain all fuel-burning equipment annually. Many local gas or oil companies and HVAC companies offer appliance inspections for a nominal fee. • Make regular visual inspections of all fuel-burning appliances. Check appliances for excessive rust and scaling. Also check the flame on the burner and pilot lights. The flame should be blue. A yellow flame means fuel is not being burned completely and CO may be present. Keep the blower door on the furnace closed. Use vents or fans when they are available on all fuel-burning appliances. Make sure appliances are vented to the outside. Do not grill or barbecue indoors, or in garages or onscreen porches. • Check for exhaust back-flow from CO sources. Check the draft hood on an operating furnace for a back-draft. Look for cracks on furnace heat exchangers. • Check the house or garage on the other side of shared wall. • Keep windows and doors open slightly. If you suspect that CO is escaping into your home, open a window or a door. Opening windows and doors can significantly decrease CO levels. 25 Regulatory Information for CO Alarms What Levels of CO Cause an Alarm? Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Standard UL2034 requires residential CO Alarms to sound when exposed to levels ofCO and exposure times as described below. They are measured in partsper million (ppm) of CO over time (in minutes). UL2034 Required Alarm Points*: • If the alarm is exposed to 400 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM BETWEEN 4 & 15 MINUTES. • If the alarm is exposed to 150 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM BETWEEN 10 & 50 MINUTES. • If the alarm is exposed to 70 ppm of CO, IT MUST ALARM BETWEEN 60 & 240 MINUTES. *Approximately 10% of COHb exposure at levels of 10% to 95% Relative Humidity (RH). This unit is designed not to alarm when exposed to a constant level of 30 ppm for 30 days. IMPORTANT: CO alarms are designed to alarm before there is an immediate life threat.
! Standards Since you cannot see or smell CO, never assume it’s not present. An exposure to 100 ppm of CO for 20 minutes may not affect average, healthy adults but after 4 hours the same level may cause headaches. An exposure to 400 ppm of CO may cause headaches in average, healthy adults after 35 minutes, but can cause death after 2 hours.
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. Single and Multiple Station carbon monoxide alarms UL2034. According to Underwriters Laboratories Inc. UL2034, Section 1-1.2: “Carbon monoxide alarms covered by these requirements are intended to respond to the presence of carbon monoxide from sources such as, but not limited to, exhaust from internal-combustion engines, abnormal operation of fuel-fired appliances, and fireplaces. CO Alarms are intended to alarm at carbon monoxide levels below those that could cause a loss of ability to react to the dangers of Carbon Monoxide exposure.” This CO Alarm monitors the air at the Alarm, and is designed to alarm before CO levels become life threatening. This allows you precious time to leave the house and correct the problem. This is only possible if Alarms are located, installed, and maintained as described in this manual. Gas Detection at Typical Temperature and Humidity Ranges The CO Alarm is not formulated to detect CO levels below 30 ppm typically. Tested for false alarm resistance to Methane (500 ppm), Butane (300 ppm), Heptane (500 ppm), Ethyl Acetate (200 ppm), Isopropyl Alcohol (200 ppm) and Carbon Dioxide (5000 ppm). Values measure gas and vapor concentrations in parts per million. Audible Alarm 85 dB minimum at 10 feet (3 meters). 26 Regulatory Information for Smoke Alarms Installing Smoke Alarms in Single-Family Residences The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), recommends one Smoke Alarm on every floor, in every sleeping area, and in every bedroom. In new construction, the Smoke Alarms must be AC powered and interconnected. See “Agency Placement Recommendations” for details. For additional coverage, it is recommended that you install a Smoke Alarm in all rooms, halls, storage areas, finished attics, and basements, where temperatures normally remain between 40˚ F (4.4˚ C) and 100˚ F (37.8˚ C). Make sure no door or other obstruction could keep smoke from reaching the Smoke Alarms. For your information, the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, NFPA 72, reads as follows: Required Detection. Where required by applicable laws, codes, or standards for a specific type of occupancy, approved single- and multiple-station smoke alarms shall be installed as follows: • In all sleeping rooms and guest rooms • Outside of each separate dwelling unit sleeping area, within 21 ft (6.4 m) of any door to a sleeping room, the distance measured along a path of travel • On every level of a dwelling unit, including basements • On every level of a residential board and care occupancy (small facility), including basements and excluding crawl spaces and unfinished attics • In the living area(s) of a guest suite In the living area(s) of a residential board and care occupancy ! IMPORTANT: Specific requirements for Smoke Alarm installation vary from state to state and from region to region. Check with your local Fire Department for current requirements in your area. It is recommended AC or AC/DC units be interconnected for added protection. Recommended Placement Smoke Alarm

To comply with FCC and Industry Canada RF radiation exposure limits for general population, the antenna(s) used for this transmitter must not be co-located or operating in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter. 30 Special Compliance Considerations This Smoke Alarm is suitable for use in apartments, condominiums, townhouses, hospitals, day care facilities, health care facilities, boarding houses, group homes and dormitories provided a primary fire detection system already exists to meet fire detection requirements in common areas like lobbies, hallways, or porches. Using this Smoke Alarm in common areas may not provide sufficient warning to all residents or meet local fire protection ordinances/regulations. This Smoke Alarm alone is not a suitable substitute for complete fire detection systems in places housing many people—like apartment buildings, condominiums, hotels, motels, dormitories, hospitals, health care facilities, nursing homes, day care facilities, or group homes of any kind. It is not a suitable substitute for complete fire detection systems in warehouses, industrial facilities, commercial buildings, and special-purpose non-residential buildings which require special fire detection and alarm systems. Depending on the building codes in your area, this Smoke Alarm may be used to provide additional protection in these facilities. In new construction, most building codes require the use of AC or AC/DC powered Smoke Alarms only. In existing construction, AC, AC/DC, or DC powered Smoke Alarms can be used as specified by local building codes. Refer to NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code) and NFPA 101 (Life Safety Code), local building codes, or consult your Fire Department for detailed fire protection requirements in buildings not defined as “households”. HUD MAP Program: Certain HUD battery powered Smoke Alarm applications, especially those that fall under HUD 223(f) MAP (Multi-family Accelerated Processing), may require a 10 Year sealed tamper resistant battery. This alarm meets that requirement. General Limitations for Smoke/CO Alarms This Smoke/CO Alarm is intended for residential use. It is not intended for use in industrial applications where Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements for Carbon Monoxide Alarms must be met. The Smoke Alarm portion of this device is not intended to alert hearing impaired residents. Special purpose Smoke Alarms should be installed for hearing impaired residents (CO Alarms are not yet available for the hearing impaired). Smoke/CO Alarms may not waken all individuals. Practice the escape plan at least twice a year, making sure that everyone is involved – from kids to grandparents. Allow children to master fire escape planning and practice before holding a fire drill at night when they are sleeping. If children or others do not readily waken to the sound of the Smoke/CO Alarm, or if there are infants or family members with mobility limitations, make sure that someone is assigned to assist them in fire drill and in the event of an emergency. It is recommended that you hold a fire drill while family members are sleeping in order to determine their response to the sound of the Smoke/ CO Alarm while sleeping and to determine whether they may need assistance in the event of an emergency. 31 General Limitations for Smoke/CO Alarms (Continued) Smoke/CO Alarms cannot work without power. Battery operated units cannot work if the batteries are missing, disconnected or dead, if the wrong type of batteries are used, or if the batteries are not installed correctly. If the AC power is cut off for any reason (open fuse or circuit breaker, failure along a power line or at a power station, electrical fire that burns the electrical wires, etc.). If you are concerned about the limitations of battery or AC power, install both types of units. This Smoke/CO Alarm will not sense smoke or CO that does not reach the sensors. It will only sense smoke or CO at the sensor. Smoke or CO may be present in other areas. Doors or other obstructions may affect the rate at which CO or smoke reaches the sensors. If bedroom doors are usually closed at night, we recommend you install an alarm device (Combination CO and Smoke Alarm, or separate CO Alarms and Smoke Alarms) in each bedroom and in the hallway between them. ! CAUTION: This device will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide gas at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be present. This Smoke/CO Alarm may not sense smoke or CO on another level of the home. Example: This alarm device, installed on the second floor, may not sense smoke or CO in the basement. For this reason, one alarm device may not give adequate early warning. Recommended minimum protection is one alarm device in every sleeping area, every bedroom, and on every level of your home. Some experts recommend battery powered Smoke and CO Alarms be used in conjunction with interconnected AC powered Smoke Alarms. For details, see “About Smoke Alarms” for details. Smoke/CO Alarms may not be heard. The alarm horn loudness meets or exceeds current UL standards of 85 dB at 10 feet (3 meters). However, if the Smoke/CO Alarm is installed outside the bedroom, it may not wake up a sound sleeper or one who has recently used drugs or has been drinking alcoholic beverages. This is especially true if the door is closed or only partly open. Even persons who are awake may not hear the alarm horn if the sound is blocked by distance or closed doors. Noise from traffic, stereo, radio, television, air conditioner, or other appliances may also prevent alert persons from hearing the alarm horn. This Smoke/CO Alarm is not intended for people who are hearing impaired. The Alarm may not have time to alarm before the fire itself causes damage, injury, or death, since smoke from some fires may not reach the unit immediately. Examples of this include persons smoking in bed, children playing with matches, or fires caused by violent explosions resulting from escaping gas. This Smoke/CO Alarm is not a substitute for life insurance. Though this Smoke/CO Alarm warns against increasing CO levels or the presence of smoke, BRK Brands, Inc. does not warrant or imply in any way that they will protect lives. Homeowners and renters must still insure their lives. This Smoke/CO Alarm has a limited life. Although this Smoke/CO Alarm and all of its parts have passed many stringent tests and are designed to be as reliable as possible, any of these parts could fail at any time. Therefore, you must test this device weekly. The unit should be replaced immediately if it is not operating properly. This Smoke/CO Alarm is not foolproof. Like all other electronic devices, this Smoke/CO Alarm has limitations. It can only detect smoke or CO that reaches the sensors. It may not give early warning of the source of smoke or CO is in a remote part of the home, away from the alarm device. 32 Troubleshooting Guide App FAQ If the App... Problem... You Should...
