Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer.com, I am glad you are here! My name is Eric & I will endeavor to answer your question.

 

Is your Flashing LED Red or Green and is it flassing in a pattern such as on for about 1.5 seconds then off for 8 seconds or is it rapidly flashing?

Expert:  Eric M. Bright replied 4 years ago.

Here are some possible flash code sequences

 

If your unit includes the Smart HushTM feature that silences the unit for approximately 7 minutes if a nuisance condition occurs.

The red LED will illuminate for 1.5 seconds every 8 seconds and will automatically reset itself.

If the alarm is in the Hush mode and the condition that triggered the alarm persists, the alarm shall sound again to signal potential danger despite its presence in Hush Mode.The unit shall incorporate one red LED to indicate the alarm's current status and mode of operation.

The LED will indicate one of four modes:

Standby Mode: LED will flash every 40-45 seconds to indicate the unit is operating correctly

Alarm Mode: LED will flash every 1.5 seconds to indicate the unit is alarming and will be accompanied by the horn sounding

Hush Mode: LED will illuminate for 1.5 seconds every 8 seconds to indicate the unit is temporarily silenced Memory Set Mode: If Alarm Memory has been set, the LED will flash rapidly when the test button is pressed.
