Smoke alarms may not be heard. The loudness of the horn in
your alarm meets current standards. However, the sound may be
blocked by distance, closed doors, or ambient noise such as traffic
or a stereo. Smoke alarms may not be heard by persons who are
hard of hearing. For these reasons, a smoke alarm should be
installed in every room or at least on every level of your home.
American Sensors recommends that hardwire AC Powered smoke
alarms be interconnected, so that one alarm will trigger all other
Smoke alarms to sound their alarms.
Smoke alarms are not fool-proof. Smoke alarms may not always
sense every kind of fire. They cannot be expected to sense fires
caused by carelessness or by safety hazards. They may not give
early warning of fast growing fires caused by smoking in bed,
violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable
materials, overloaded electrical circuits, natural causes such as
lightning, children playing with matches, or arson.
alarm should be installed outside each sleeping area, in the
basement and at every level of the home (see Figure 3).
• In every room of your home (except the bathroom): Research
indicates that substantial increases in warning time can be
obtained with each properly installed, additional alarm.
For installation of Smoke Alarms in Dwelling Units, it is important
to follow the Canadian Electrical Code (1994) Part 1, Section 32-

Depress and hold the test button until the alarm sounds. NOTE:
It may be necessary to depress the test button for up to 20
seconds for an alarm to sound. An alarm is indicated by a loud
continuous pulsating sound. An alarm may continue to sound
for up to 10 seconds after the button is released.

Model can be® located in any area of the home. Its
Alarm-Pause feature makes it ideal in the kitchen area
to silence nuisance alarms. Do not install it directly over
a stove, toaster or dishwasher.
Your Smoke Alarm is packaged with the back-up battery

Test the alarm weekly by pressing and holding the test button
for up to 20 seconds until the alarm sounds.

Battery Back-Up - 120VAC operation with battery back-up
There are two different types of smoke alarm technology
currently in general use: Ionization and photoelectronic.
While both types of technology are suitable for general
residential use, an ionization alarm will normally respond
faster to fast flaming fires, while a photoelectronic alarm
may be more sensitive to detecting slow smouldering fires.
Because home fires develop in different ways and are often
unpredictable in their growth, it is impossible to predict
which type of alarm will provide the earliest warning. For
best home protection install at least one photoelectronic and
one ionization smoke alarm on each level of your home.
Model SA379 is an ionization type smoke alarm.

AND RECREATIONAL VEHICLES (RV’s)
Note: Power supply must be 120 Volts AC for model SA379.
In mobile homes and RV’s built after 1978 locate the smoke alarm
as described above.
Older mobile homes and RV’s may have little or no insulation
compared to the ones built post 1978. These uninsulated exteriors
can disrupt airflow around the smoke alarm in hotter or colder
weather. Locate the alarm only on interior walls 10 to 15 cm (4"
to 6") from ceiling 1. if you own an older mobile home or RV, or 2.
if you notice the exterior walls and/or ceiling are noticeably cold or
warm or 3. if you are uncertain about the quality of insulation.
Regardless of the age of the mobile home or RV, locate alarms
throughout to ensure maximum protection. Follow the location
instructions in this manual.
NOTE: If the battery drawer is open, the low battery warning beep
is disabled. The battery drawer is designed to resist closing when the
back-up battery is removed, thereby ensuring visual warning.
Dual-Ionization Chambers - Advanced design responds to
visible or invisible particles of combustion (smoke) to sense fires
in their earliest stages. Compensates for changes in humidity and
temperature to virtually eliminate “nuisance” alarms caused by
normal atmospheric changes in the home.
Operating Lights (LED’s) - A continuous green light located
behind the slotted case indicates the smoke alarm is receiving
AC power. A red light that flashes approximately every 45
seconds confirms that the battery is operational.
A photoelectronic smoke alarm senses smoke using an electronic
photo receptor to sense the scattering of light by smoke particles.

Use of a non-recommended battery may be
detrimental to the proper functioning of the alarm.
Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms are an essential part
of a good home fire safety program. Your fire safety program
should also include a review of fire hazards and the elimination of
dangerous conditions whenever possible. Consider the following

Dicon Global Inc.'s option. This warranty
American Sensors smoke alarms are designed to provide early
warning of fire and smoke at reasonable cost. Early warning can
mean the difference between a safe escape and no escape at all.
While smoke alarms can provide invaluable protection for you and
your family, they do have limitations.
Smoke alarms cannot work without power. Battery operated
alarms will not work without proper batteries, with dead
batteries or if batteries are not properly installed. AC powered
alarms will not work if their AC power supply is cut off by an
electrical fire, an open fuse, a circuit breaker or any other reason.
If you are concerned about the reliability of either batteries or
your AC power supply for any of the above reasons, you should
install in your home both AC and battery powered smoke alarms
for added security. This American Sensors Smoke Alarm model
SA379 is AC powered with battery back-up and offers superior
protection from the dangers of smoke and fire.
Smoke alarms are incapable of sounding the alarm until
smoke reaches the sensing chamber. Anything preventing
smoke from reaching the alarm may delay or prevent an alarm.
A smoke alarm cannot detect fire in the walls, chimney or roof
unless and until a significant amount of smoke reaches the
alarm. A closed door may prevent smoke from reaching an alarm
on the other side of the door. A smoke alarm may not sense a
fire on another floor of a home. For example, a basement smoke
alarm may not detect a fire which started on the first or second

Alarm-Pause feature. In this mode, the unit should not respond to
smoke (by sounding an alarm) for a period of approximately 10
minutes, unless the level of smoke concentration becomes very
heavy (appro®aching 4 per cent per foot obstruction). During the
Alarm-Pause period, the smoke alarm should “beep” approximately
once every 45 seconds to alert the household that the smoke alarm
has been silenced.

WARNING: All AC-powered interconnected smoke alarms shall be
installed on the same circuit (i.e., the same circuit breaker/fuse). The
electrical circuit must be a 24-hour voltage circuit that cannot be
turned off by a switch or Ground Fault Interrupter. It is important that
the power to each alarm is taken from the same point within the circuit
and the polarities are maintained on each alarm. Following these
instructions will prevent false alarming due to electrical system
imbalances and damage to the units due to incorrect polarities. It is
highly recommended that smoke alarms be wired on a separate
circuit (one with no other lights or appliances) to ensure maximum
reliability of AC power supply.
If the®level of smoke density increases, the length of the Alarm-
Pause period will shorten. As the level of smoke density approaches
4 per cent per foot obstruction (a very heavy concentrat®ion of
