I have 2 of these smoke detectors in my house. They don’t have any information on them to indicate the brand or model. I did do a reverse image search on Google which came up with
Sensaphone IMS-4862, but even that information got me nowhere; I can’t find an instruction manual, and I even spoke with Sensaphone customer support who didn’t know how to help.
Basically I just want to test the alarms and replace batteries if needed. But I don’t even know if they have batteries or if they’re only hardwired. There is a spot on the edge that says “Test” but there’s no button to press, so it’s unclear how to conduct the test. I’ve tried twisting the front of the unit in both directions and nothing comes off. I’ve tried twisting the entire unit from the ceiling in both directions and nothing comes off.
Really at a loss here and just want to make sure our smoke detectors are operating as intended. If anyone can help I would appreciate it!
For reference, the house was built in 1999 and these may be original. We moved in 8 months ago.
After having discovered that the detectors are tied in to the old security system, I’ll hopefully be able to use the information on the security system control box to track down how to replace the detectors themselves. Thanks!
