Instructions for Lifetone HLAC151 Alarm Clock
Lifetone HL uses patented monitoring technology to actively listen for the sound of your smoke alarm, and ignore all other sounds at the same frequency, about 3100Hz. When it detects your smoke alarm, it immediately initiates three different signals to wake you up: Special low pitched, 520Hz square-wave T3 alarm sound proven in controlled scientific testing as the most effective at waking people in a fire emergency. The Lifetone HL has a 85dB alarm signal - that;s like having someone start a lawn mower next to your bed. The Lifetone HL has a baritone voice that says "Fire! Get out!" in English or Spanish. The Lifetone HL has a visual signal on the backlit display that flashes the word FIRE. In a darkened room, the flashing display is another form of sensory stimulation to "break through" the fogginess of sleep. The Lifetone HL comes with a small bed shaker that will vibrate strongly when the alarm is triggered. Connect it for vibration notification.
Lifetone HLAC151 is not a smoke detector and does not detect smoke. Instead, it detects the alarm sounds made by smoke alarms and smoke alarm systems.
- Make sure your existing smoke alarms are UL listed and compliant T3 smoke alarms.You must have properly installed UL listed and compliant T3 smoke alarms in your home before the Lifetone HL Bedside Fire Alarm and Clock will operate correctly. Read and follow the instructions and warnings that accompany your existing smoke alarms
- Test your Lifetone HL Fire Alarm frequently with your smoke alarms.Press the red TEST/SILENCE button on the back. After the Lifetone HLAC151 test fire alarm stops, look for the icon on the display. Then go to your smoke alarm and press the test button on that. This test may identify smoke alarms in your home that are not functioning.
- Keep noise levels in your home to a reasonable minimum during use. Your Lifetone HL Fire Alarm is at its best in a quiet environment next to your bed or in a nighttime sleeping area. Excessive noise may mask an emergency signal from your smoke alarms and may increase the amount of time to detect that signal.
- Keep the Microphone Grille and Dust Protector free and clear. Do not cover the top of the unit with anything. The domed microphone area must be unobstructed to assure proper operation of the product.
- Keep your Lifetone HL Fire Alarm connected to an electrical outlet. Check the red power lamp on the front to be sure the unit has not been accidentally unplugged. The Lifetone HL is not meant to operate on batteries alone for extended periods of time. Do not rely upon the batteries for normal operation. The batteries are for backup during power outages.
- Do not plug your Lifetone HL into a switched electrical outlet (i.e., an outlet that is controlled by a wall switch).
- Replace the batteries in your Lifetone HL as needed. Replace the batteries at least once a year in your Lifetone HL or more often if there have been frequent or extended power outages. The Lifetone HL will give an audio “chirp” once each minute and flash BATT on the screen to signal low batteries
- Do not unplug the unit from AC power when you change the batteries. As long as the Lifetone HL has AC or battery power, it will preserve your setup information so that you don’t have to do the setup test again. When batteries are changed is also a good time to conduct alarm tests
- Use the correct batteries in your Lifetone HL Fire Alarm. Use four (4) D cell alkaline batteries in your product. Do not use rechargeable batteries because they may damage your Lifetone HL Fire Alarm
- Face the display screen toward you. The Display screen and speaker must faceyou to assure proper operation of the product
- Attend to the notifications on the display screen. Smoke or fire emergency signals appear there. Other visual signals indicating normal operation and errors are shown on the screen. With the exception of the time-of-day colon, any flashing symbol is intended to attract your attention.
