CO Advice

Less disruption for tenants with quiet self-test

FireAngel’s latest range of carbon monoxide alarms features a quiet self-test option for a more convenient way for residents to test their devices.

With the quiet self-test feature, residents can feel confident in testing their alarms at any time of the day with the knowledge it won’t wake up loved ones or disturb the neighbours.

It’s just one of the new features of our latest carbon monoxide (CO) alarm range, with enhanced CO detection.

Once a CO alarm has been installed, activate by pulling the disabling tab out of the device (however for the FA3328 alarm attaching to the base plate will activate) and wait 1 minute for the green LED to flash to confirm the device is activated and can be tested.

How to activate a quiet self-test?

A quiet self‑test can be activated by pressing the testing button on CO alarm once to hear a quiet alarm, at least 10dB below the full alarm volume. When pressed, the button will initiate the testing sequence within the alarm. If an alarm does not sound, please contact our Customer Support Team.

If residents are worried this alarm will not wake them up if it sounds at night, we have specifically designed a quiet self‑test to enable easy, less disruptive testing of all alarms in a property to ensure they are in working order without disturbing others.

To test the alarm at full volume (85dB@3M) and to hear the level it will sound at when detecting carbon monoxide in a property, double press the large button on the alarm. FireAngel recommend testing all alarms on a weekly basis, including any smoke and heat alarms in a property as well.
