Quick Set Up Guide
Determine the best location for your CO alarm(s). Usually this is in or
near bedrooms. Refer to page 1-5 for complete information.
If your CO alarm is equipped with a power cord, mount the alarm on
the wall at eye level using the hardware provided. Eye level is the best
position to easily see the digital display. If your CO alarm is equipped
with a direct plug, simply plug in (you can rotate the plug if neces-
sary) For hardwire units and for detailed instructions on mounting all
alarms, refer to page 1-7,8.
Plug the CO alarm into a standard, unswitched 120 volt AC electric out-
let. If you have a direct plug model, mount the CO alarm with digital
display at the top. You will hear the alarm sound briefly to indicate the
unit is receiving power. Refer to page 1-9 for more details.
You will first see three eights in the digital display indicating the
CO alarm is warming up. After approximately 30 seconds, the first read-
ing will appear on the digital display. The number on the digital display
should be zero (0). If not, see page 1-9 for complete information on
normal operating characteristics.
Make sure the red dot in the digital display is blinking. Then test the
alarm’s operation by pressing the Test/Reset button and releasing.
Within 15 seconds you will hear 4 quick beeps – 5 seconds off – then
4 quick beeps. For complete testing information, refer to page 1-10.
While testing the alarm, have someone else check that the alarm can be
heard easily from the sleeping areas. The CO alarm should be located
where it can wake you if it alarms at night. See page 1-5 for complete
information on the best locations for your CO alarm.
Caution: Continuous exposure to the loud 85 decibel alarm at close
range over an extended period of time may cause hearing loss.
That’s it. Your Nighthawk CO alarm is now monitoring for the presence
of carbon monoxide.
