DMP 1184 Wireless Carbon Monoxide Detector Manual

DMP 1184 Wireless Carbon Monoxide Detector Manual Image

Installation Guide


1184 is a 3 V battery-powered wireless carbon monoxide (CO) detector that provides early warning when the electrochemical sensing technology measures CO levels in the air.

The detector has an electrochemical  CO sensor assembly coupled with an 1100 Series wireless transmitter and an audible sounder. The transmitter can send alarm, trouble, tamper, and low battery condition messages to the alarm panel.
The detector works well for difficult wiring locations, for critically aesthetic applications, or for areas where hazardous materials exist.

Table 1: Detector Notifications


Install the transmitter away from large metal objects which impair wireless performance. For the LED Survey Operation completes the following steps before proceeding:

  1. Use a separate 1100 Series Transmitter for the LED Survey Operation such as 1106 since 1184 transmitter PCB is not visible.
  2. Find the survey button on the 1106 transmitter PCB and the survey LED near the survey button location.
    The transmitter PCB Red Survey LED turns on whenever data is sent to the receiver then immediately turns off when the receiver acknowledgment is received.
  3. Press and release the tamper switch to send data to the receiver to confirm the operation.
    √ Confirmed: If communication is confirmed, for each press or release of the tamper switch, the LED blinks immediately on and immediately off.
    × Faulty: If communication is faulty, the LED remains on for about 8 seconds or flashes multiple times in quick succession. Relocate the [generic product] or receiver until the LED confirms clear communication.
  4. Test the communication between the control panel and the detector using the panel walk test feature.
    See Test the Detector Alarm.

General Location Guidelines
In addition to NFPA 720, use the following location guidelines to optimize performance from the CO detector:

  •  Install ceiling-mounted detectors at least 12 inches from any wall
  •  Install wall-mounted detectors at least as high as the light switch and 6 inches below the ceiling.
  •  Mount the detector on a firm permanent surface
  •  Locate the detector in environmentally controlled areas where the temperature does not exceed 104° F (40° C) or drop below 32° F (0° C).
  • When mounting to suspended ceiling tile, the tile must be secured with the appropriate fastener to prevent tile removal
  •  Install in the vicinity of flame-fueled appliances, but no closer than 10 feet.
  • Keep detectors away from vents and the reach of children and pets.


When setting up a wireless system, it is recommended to program zones and connect the wireless receiver before installing batteries in the transmitters.

1. Use the two screws provided to mount the base in the location previously surveyed for proper communication.
2. Use the alignment notch on the lip of the mounting base as a guide to align the detector with the alignment tabs.
3. Insert the detector into the mounting base and turn clockwise approximately 15 degrees to snap into place.

To remove the detector from the mounting base, grasp the detector and turn it counterclockwise approximately 15 degrees. The detector snaps off of the mounting base. See Figure 3.


Caution: Properly dispose of used batteries. Do not recharge, disassemble, heat above 212°F (100°C), or incinerate. Risk of fire, explosion, and burns.
Observe polarity when installing the battery. Use only 3.0 V lithium batteries, DMP Model CR123-FIRE or Panasonic Model CR123A.
Note: When setting up a wireless system, it is recommended to program zones and connect the receiver before installing batteries in the transmitters.

  1. Remove the detector from the mounting base. See the final section of Install the Detector.
  2. The battery is located on the inside of the detector. The detector is supplied with a pre-installed battery. During the initial installation simply remove the battery pull tab to begin operation.
  3. If replacing the battery, remove the old battery and dispose of it properly.
  4.  Observing correct polarity, insert the new 3V lithium battery into the battery compartment and replace the cover. Use only new batteries when replacing old ones.
  5. Reattach the detector to the mounting base.
  6.  Test the detector. See Test the Detector Alarm.

Note: The power cell degrades predictably over its 6-year life. As it ages, a timer runs, and compensation is applied. When the timer expires, the detector enters end-of-life trouble. In end-of-life trouble, the red LED will flash once every 10 seconds, and the sounder will chirp every 45 seconds and can’t be silenced. End-of-life trouble is latching and unable to be reset. At this time, the detector must be replaced.


Wireless Communication
The control panel alarm and all auxiliary functions should be verified for a complete test of the system. See the panel programming guide for additional information.

  1. To conduct the Walk Test, reset the control panel. From the keypad, enter code 8144 (WALK). The keypad displays WALK TEST. Select STD for Standard Walk Test. Refer to the panel programming guide for complete information on Walk Test operation.
  2. Insert a small screwdriver into the Test hole on the front of the detector to activate the test, sound the detector’s audible, and send a message. Verify that the walk test trip counter increments to indicate a successful test.
  3.  Select END to stop the Walk Test. When the Walk Test ends or a 20-minute time-out expires, a final Sensor Reset occurs. Faulted zones then display on the keypad.

Detector Sensitivity

Before testing, be sure to notify the central station to avoid false alarms.

  1. With a small screwdriver, press and hold the recessed Test switch on the detector for approximately 2 seconds. The detector will temporarily sound an alarm and the red LED will illuminate.
  2.  Within a few seconds, the green LED will start to blink rapidly indicating the detector is in functional test mode awaiting gas entry.
  3. Spray a very small amount of Solo TM brand C6 canned CO, available at most local security distributors or online, into one of the 3 small gas entry holes located on the top center of the detector.Upon successful gas entry and if functioning properly, the detector will alarm by sounding in a Temporal 4 patterns with the red LED blinking. An alarm signal will be sent to the panel providing verification of the alarm signal.
    The alarm condition at the detector will time out in 20 to 60 seconds or when the CO gas has cleared.
