6000DCW Guide

This smoke alarm is capable of wirelessly interlinking with other Lifesaver 6000DCW smoke alarms and Lifesaver 6000 series mains powered smoke alarms fitted with 6000WB wireless base. When one RF interlink unit sounds an alarm, all other compatible RF units in the RF interlink network will alarm.

The 6000DCW is also compatible with the 6000THL smoke alarm remote control for hassle-free wireless test, hush and locate.

The new 6000DCW smoke alarm includes the following features:

  1. A new design with dome cover and insect mesh around the smoke chamber.
  2. Easy power on and power off mounting base.  Removing the smoke alarm from the mounting base will deactivate the alarm.
  3. Improved sensor detection algorithm to reduce false alarm events
  4. Anti-static smoke chamber to repel dust away from the sensor
  5. A smart monitored wireless network supervises all the smoke alarms. This ensures smoke alarms are wirelessly connected at all times, providing continuous safety and guarantees compliance.

 

Installation

  1. We recommend to set up or program the wireless network on the desk or bench before installing the smoke alarms.
  2. As the wireless network is monitored, use one 6000DCW as the coordinator, and install this unit in the most centrally located position in the house. This will ensure all other wireless alarms have good network coverage.
  3. All 6000 series models are hardwired and wirelessly compatible with the 5800/2 series and LIF10YPEW. If a mix of old and new models are installed, a 6000DCW must be the coordinator.  Please note, the smoke alarm control 6000THL will only operate with 6000 series smoke alarms.

  4. Avoid locations with high air-flow or drafts as this will prevent smoke from entering the smoke alarm. These locations can also cause false alarms when dust is blown into the smoke alarm.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Alarms

Regularly maintain your smoke alarms. Insects and dust can cause false alarms, to prevent this, vacuum the smoke alarms regularly.

The smoke alarm will chirp to warn you of a low battery or other fault conditions. Please see the manual for more details. If the battery is low, then pressing the Hush button will snooze the low battery chirping for 24 hours.

In the case of having a false alarm or requiring to test alarms, a 6000THL wireless remote can be used. The remote has a memory feature and status indication which can be used to Hush, Test and Locate individual alarms that are compatible with the 6000 series.
