took down but not still beeping, can you help me with that?
I took it down but it's still beeping
Ok thank you
Smart CheckA signal is sent to the control panel when the detector requires cleaning. This allows a regular, non-emergency service call to clean the detector before it goes into alarm.
So how do I get it to stop beeping?
When a smoke detector sensor is contaminated by the smallest part of dust or dirt, it can be very sensitive and begin beeping but it is a false trip Cleaning the unit by the user manual instructions should calm it down
okay -= do you have those instructions
I am looking for those exact instructions right now
is this a system or a stand alone?
I think a system = it's connected to my alarm system (security)
Yes it has a wireless transmitter, I want to use their verbage for cleaning this model I know I have a pdf on this , just a minute or two
there is the manual in pdf format you can print off for other issues I will pick out the cleaning instructions for you
The 5808W3 is powered by a single 3-volt CR123A or DL123A Lithiumbattery (included). The detector checks for a low battery at leastevery 65 minutes. If a low battery is detected, the transmitter sendsa low battery message to the control panel, which beeps and displaysthe detector’s zone number. In addition, the red LED of the 5808W3will blink every 45 seconds and the test switch will be disabled. Thiscondition will exist for a minimum of 7 days, and then the detector’shorn will “chirp” about every 45 seconds. Pressing the test switchduring this time will silence the chirps for 12 hours. The batteryshould be replaced BEFORE the chirps begin. Be sure to replace thebattery with a fresh one.
It is a very complex device, I forgot it also has the low battery alarm does the chirping fall into the above? about every 45 seconds
NOTE: Before performing maintenance on the detector, notify theproper authorities and the central station that maintenance is beingperformed and the system will be temporarily out of service. Disablethe zone or system undergoing maintenance to prevent any unwantedalarms, and follow this procedure exactly, referring to Figure 5.
1. Remove the detector housing from the base by twistingcounter-clockwise.2. Remove the battery from the unit.3. Wait 20 seconds. (To ensure proper power-down sequence, thebattery must be removed from detector for a minimum of 20seconds before continuing to the next step.)4. Remove the detector cover by turning counter-clockwise.5. Vacuum the cover or use canned air to remove any dust or debris.6. Remove the top half of the screen/sensing chamber by liftingstraight up (see Figure 5).7. Vacuum or use canned air to remove any dust or particles thatare present on all chamber sections.8. Replace the top half of the screen/sensing chamber by aligningthe arrow on the screen/sensing chamber with the arrow on thehousing. Press down firmly until the screen/sensing chamber isfully seated.9. Replace the detector cover by placing it over the screen/sensingchamber and turning it clockwise until it snaps into place.SpecificationsPower Source: One 3-volt CR123A Lithium Battery (included).

Reinstall the battery into the battery compartment noting properorientation. The red and green LEDs will flash once every 5seconds for approximately 20 seconds until the power-up cycle iscomplete.11. Reinstall the detector and test (see the Testing section).12. Notify the central station when the system is back in service.IMPORTANT: If this procedure is not followed exactly, thedetector may indicate a maintenance trouble after the power-upsequence is complete. If this happens, remove the battery for 20seconds and then reinstall.

Testing Programmed LoopsThis test should be performed before installation to ensure that allloops intended to be used have been programmed and are operationalin the system.1. Activate the system’s TRANSMITTER ID SNIFFER mode fromthe keypad (see the control panel’s instructions). All programmedwireless zones will be displayed, one by one, on the systemkeypad. Make sure all smoke detector zones are displayed inthe sequence. (If they are not, recheck that all zones have beenproperly programmed.)2. With the detector mounted to the bracket, press the smokedetector’s TEST switch. All zones associated with the smokedetector should disappear from the keypad on the next displaycycle. This means that the system has received a transmissionfrom each loop you programmed.3. When testing is complete, enter the Installer code + the OFF keyto exit TEST mode.When all system testing has been completed, notify the central stationthat the system is back on line.- 3
A. Test Switch1. A recessed test switch is located on the detector housing (seeFigure 4).2. Push and hold the recessed test switch for a minimum of 5seconds. Use a small screwdriver or Allen key with maximumdiameter of 0.18 inch (the alarm panel will trigger and then thesmoke detector will go into alarm. If the tool is removed from therecessed switch the sounder will shut off.)If the detector is within the listed sensitivity limits, the LED onthe detector should blink once per second and the horn shouldsound within 3 seconds.
Dependent on the chirp timing will determine the fault every 45 seconds for a low battery
1. Activate the wireless system’s GO/NO GO TEST mode fromthe keypad.2. Depress and hold the smoke detector’s TEST switch. If thedetector has not previously detected a low battery conditionand it is within proper sensitivity limits, the detector shouldimmediately transmit an alarm signal to the control panel.The built-in horn will start to sound about 2.5 seconds afterdepressing the button.3. The wireless system’s keypad should emit at least three audiblesounds when the alarm transmission is received and will displaythe transmitting detector’s zone number.4. When the console has received the test signal, release the TESTswitch. The horn will immediately stop and a few seconds laterthe detector’s zone number will clear from the console display.5. If the console does not respond as noted, check the polarity of thebattery and be sure it is fresh. If this is an initial installation,try moving the detector to another location that provides properreception. Also be sure that the detector has been “enrolled” bythe control panel (see PROGRAMMING). Then, repeat the test.6. Turn off the system’s TEST mode from the keypad (securitycode + OFF).
