Product DescriptionThe Sonic Alert HomeAware™ Smoke and CO (carbon monoxide) transmitter will alert you to the sounds produced by the smoke and CO detectors already installed in your home. This transmitter alerts you through the HomeAware™ Main unit (our item # 257547) and remote receivers (our item #257548) located in other rooms.
Either connect to Your Existing Home Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors directly or it will detect the T3 standard or T4 standard alert sound when the detector is activated.
This transmitter detects loud sounds and will transmit a signal to the HomeAware™ base unit and all HomeAware™ remote receivers, also the red LED light will flash on the front of the receiver unit.
If this transmitter detects a loud sound from a smoke detector that meets the T3 standard used for SMOKE DETECTORS, SMOKE will scroll on the display of the HomeAware™ Main Unit.
If the transmitter detects a loud sound from a CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) DETECTOR that meets the T4 standard, CO will scroll on the displayed of the HomeAware™ Main Unit.If a loud sound is detected that does NOT match the T3 or T4 standard, then ALERT will scroll on the HomeAware™ Main unit in a loud, repeating pattern.
You can control the sensitivity level for the "ALERT" detection using the switch on the back of the unit. There are three levels to choose from: The HI setting is the most sensitive setting and will alert you to more sounds. Moving this switch to MED makes it less sensitive and will alert you to less sound. The LO setting is the least sensitive. If you're not picking up the sound you need to be alerted to, simply move the sensitivity switch to a higher setting. If you have set this setting to HI and you are still not picking up the sound, try moving the transmitter closer to the source sound.
