FAQs-BEE-SD Smoke Detector

BeeSecure» FAQ »BEE-SD
Do I have to buy BEE-HUB to use the smoke detector ?
You can use the smoke detector without the hub. But it is strongly suggested to use it with the hub to be aware of any potential fire risk on time.
How do I know if the smoke detector is working?
You can remotely test your device by clicking "self-check " from the app. The app will return the test results.
I accidentally triggered the alarm by smoking indoors, can I mute it?
Yes. Go to the smoke detector page, a "Mute" button will be displayed when smoke is detected . You can manually mute the siren. The smoke detector siren will be on again if the smoke is still detected after 9 minutes when the mute is pressed
I received low battery notification/message, what can I do?
The notification/message will indicate you which battery of the smoke detector is running low. If it is from the ZigBee base, replace the batteries (CR14505). If it is from the smoke detector unit, replace with new detector as soon as possible
I installed multiple smoke detectors on each floor of my house, do I need one hub on each floor?
Check the status of your smoke detector at home page, if it appears offline, it means the communication range between the smoke detector and hub may fall out of range. Add BEE-REPEATER in between to extend the communication range between hub and each smoke detector
