The S1209 Series of photoelectric smoke alarms are single/multiple station smoke alarms designed for use as an evacuation device in all dwelling units, including homes, apartments, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels, motels, and dormitories, in compliance with ANSI/UL 217, applicable IBC/IFC/IRC Standards and NFPA 72.
The S1209 Series is engineered to virtually eliminate nuisance alarms and deliver outstanding performance wherever reliable fire protection is required. The S1209 Series is provided with a 9VDC battery backup auxiliary power source in the event of an electrical failure. The battery impedance is verified and the alarm provides a low or missing battery warning. The battery drawer provides easy replacement without removing the unit from the wall or ceiling.
The Gentex S1209 Series is provided with a push button self-test and functionality test feature. The push button self-test verifies power operation and tests battery levels. The push and hold button functionality test analyzes the photoelectric sensing chamber for proper operation of the smoke alarm. The self and functionality tests are in compliance with NFPA 72 and ANSI/UL Standards.
