- An optional accessory, the remote control is required only for situations where the IR test beam of Testifire that triggers or stops a test is not broken by a physical presence.
Some types of detectors may not automatically initiate a test as they enter the clear cup of Testifire. The Infrared Remote Control can be used to manually start a test, and/or move on to the next test in the sequence. Aim the infrared beam LED at the Testifire head unit when it is at height and use the operation button on the Infrared Control Unit to start/stop a test. The Infrared Control Unit is powered by two AAA batteries which can be replaced by opening the panel located on the back of the unit.
