The Resideo Honeywell Home PROSiXCOMBOC is a wireless combination smoke/heat/carbon monoxide detector intended for use with the ProSeries Canada PROA7CN or ProSeries Canada PROA7PLUSCN all-in-one wireless touchscreen control panels. The PROSiXCOMBOC uses multi-criteria sensing elements to react faster while minimizing false alarms. The PROSiXCOMBOC has the following built-in sensors; photoelectric smoke sensor that detects airborne smoke particles, carbon monoxide (CO) sensor detects smoldering fires, infrared (IR) sensor measures ambient light and flame signatures (such as a flame flicker), and heat detection that monitors for dangerous rise in temperature.
The PROSiXCOMBOC detector is built with the One Go / All Go feature when all smoke detectors in the system programmed as one-go-all-go sound into alarm. The PROSiX-Series combo detector sends low battery detection and end-of-life CO reporting lets the user know when the detector needs replacing. And, the smoke detector maintenance reporting tells the user when the detector is need of cleaning.
Carbon monoxide bonds to the hemoglobin in the blood and reduces the amount of oxygen being circulated in the body. Many cases of reported carbon monoxide poisoning indicate that while victims are aware they do not feel well, they become so disorientated that they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the building or calling for assistance. Also, young children, elderly and pets may be the first to be affected. This should be discussed with ALL members of the household. Mild exposure symptoms include headaches, running nose, sore eyes, and are ofter described as "flu" like symptoms. Medium exposure symptoms include dizziness, drowsiness and vomiting. And, extreme exposure symptoms include unconsciousness, brain damage and even death.
The PROSiX-Series combo detector has a unique MAC ID number and the heat, smoke, and CO are assigned to loops 1-3 respectively. Each of the three combo sensors is enrolled as a seperate zone in the control panel. Once enrolled, the PROSiXCOMBOC cannot be used with another system until it is removed from the current controller. Use the 24 hour enrollment deletion procedure within 24 hours of initial enrollment to delete this device from the controller. This allows reenrollment in a specific controller in case enrollment in that controller failed. This resets the default settings and removes the conmmunication link data in the controller in which it is enrolled.
After enrolling and before mounting permanently, conduct a sensor test to verify adequate signal strength and adjust the device location as necessary. If applicable, NFPA 72 recommends the installation only after completing construction or any other dust producing activity. When choosing the mounting location, keep in mind that the PROSIXCOMBOC sensor should not be located within 5 feet (1.5 meters) of any cooking appliance.
Remember to test the signal strength of the PROSiXCOMBOC detector in the intended location in accordance with NFPA 72 inspections, testing and maintenance requirements to determine a strong communication path with the control panel is in place. Start by activating the system in SENSOR TEST mode. Then press one of the two detector's TEST buttons for 1-2 seconds (one for smoke and one for CO testing). The PROSiXCOMBOC detector should immediately transmit an alarm signal to the ProSeries control panel. The built-in horn will start to sound about 2.5 seconds after pressing the button.
The ProSeries keypad should emit at least three beeps when the alarm transmission is received and display the transmitting detector's zone number. When the console has received the test signal, the horn will stop and a few seconds later the detector's zone number will clear from the console display. If the console does not respond as noted, and if this is an initial installation, try moving the detector to another location that provides proper reception. Also, be sure that the detector has been "enrolled" by the controller. Then repeat the test and if successful turn off the system's TEST mode. The detector may also be functionally tested using canned smoke and canned CO (spray a small amount into the Smoke and CO entry points). If the PROSiXCOMBOC fails the test methods, the detector should be replaced.
When the CO sensor has passed end-of-life, if programmed a trouble signal is sent to the controller. This indicates that the CO sensor inside the detector must be replaced. If unresolved for 30 days, the detector will chirp every 45 seconds. The typical life of the CO sensor is ten years from the date of manufacture. It is recommeded to periodically check the "replace by" date located on the back of the detector head. This detector must be tested and maintained regularly following NFPA-72 requirements and should be cleaned at least once a year. To do so, remove the detector from the base plate by turning counterclockwise. Clean the outside casing with a cloth. Ensure that the holes on the front of the detector are not blocked with dirt and dust. Spray canned air to remove any dust or debris and reattach the detector to the base plate by rotating clockwise.
This detector should not service as a substitute for proper servicing of fuel-burning appliances or sweeping of chimneys. It should not be used on an intermittent basis or as a portable alarm for the spillage of combustion products from fuel-burning appliances or chimneys. Under normal conditions in a room where fuel burning appliances are well maintained and correctly ventilated, the amount of carbon monoxide released into the room by appliance should not be dangerous.
In the event of an PROSiXCOMOBOC alarm initiating event, move immediately to fresh air-outdoors or by an open door or window. Check that all persons are accounted for. Do not re-enter the premises or move away from the open door/window until the emergency service responders have arrived, the premises have been aired out and your alarm remains in its normal condition.
