For Your Safety
RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, EXPLOSION OR ARC FLASH
- This product must only be installed and serviced by appropriately qualified and/or licensed electrical personnel.
- This product must only be used for the purpose described in these instructions and must be installed in accordance with the wiring rules and regulations in that location.
- Isolate the electrical supply before doing any work on this product.
- Ensure the product has been correctly installed and tested for safe operation before reconnecting the electrical supply.

Relay Operation and Configuration
Global/Local Relay Setting
The 755 series smoke alarms have a Global/Local switch for use with 755RB mounting base only.
When the Global/Local switch is set to Local, only activation of the connected alarm will operate the relay.
When the Global/Local switch is set to Global, activation of any smoke alarm that is interconnected with the base causes the relay to operate.
The default setting is Global.
When the smoke alarm is triggered, the relay on the relay base will operate according to the description in Global/Local Relay Setting both when mains or backup battery power is applied.
Relay Output Connection
For connecting auxiliary devices, the relay mounting base terminal specifications are:
- NO (Normally Open)
- COM (Common)
- NC (Normally Closed).
- Wiring capacity 2 × 1.5 mm2 each
- Combination screw head type.
- Voltage-free and segregated from the mains supply terminal connections with a physical barrier.
- Relay rating is 250 V a.c., 2 A.
Remote Test/Hush Function
The Remote Test/Hush feature is controlled by the smoke alarm. Bases provide optional connection for remote test/hush buttons (dry contact momentary remote switches e.g. Clipsal bell press switches).
Connection Options for Remote Test/Hush Buttons
- Connect remote buttons as either separate Test and Hush buttons, or as single Test/Hush button.
- Wiring capacity of each terminal is 2×1.5 mm2 cables.
- Terminal screws are combination screw head type.
- Max. cable length to Remote Test/Hush switch is 20 m.
Test Function – When No Smoke Present
Test the LOCAL Smoke Alarm
Press and hold either the Remote Test button or the Local Test/Hush button and release within 4 seconds. Only the local smoke alarm will sound.
Test the LINKED Smoke Alarms
Press and hold either the Remote Test button or the Local Test/Hush button for more than 5 seconds. The linked alarms will sound.
Hush Function – When Smoke Present
To hush a smoke alarm, identify the unit which has triggered by the flashing red LED (Unit will not silence if it does not have a flashing red LED.) Press and hold the local Test/Hush button or the remote hush button for 40 seconds. All smoke alarms that are interconnected will also fall silent.
If multiple interconnected alarms have detected smoke and are flashing red LEDs, then press the Remote Hush button or the local Test/Hush button on each alarm to silence them.
