The Simplex 4010 Fire Alarm, when installed properly and according to National Fire Alarm Codes provided by the National Fire Protection Association, offers a fire alarm control panel that provides audio and well as visual alarms in the event of fire danger. Audible alerts are emitted until the questionable condition or event has been acknowledged and addressed. Numerous scenarios regarding panel instructions are available through the installation and operation manual.
Familiarize yourself with the user interface panel, which offers buttons such as "Alarm Acknowledge," "Supervisory Acknowledge," "Trouble Acknowledge," "Menu," "Function," "Enable and Disable," "Alarm Silence" and "System Reset," among others. An LED light may appear above any one or more of the alarm modes, located on the face of the panel, in the event of an alarm.
