Sometimes the simplest of things can be very complicated if you don't know how to begin.

It is the same with testing the fire alarms in the house: if you don't know how to do it, it is very complicated, but if you learn the simple way of testing the fire alarms, it is so simple.

Aico is keeping you and your family safe from Fire and Carbon Monoxide since 1990.

Second, if the green light of the alarm is green, you simply need to press the TEST button.

Depending on the model of the alarm - fire alarm, heat detector, smoke detector, CO detector, or multi-sensor fire alarm - the button is round and right in the middle of the fire alarm.

Once you press the TEST button, there will be a loud beep from the alarm you're testing and also from the interconnected alarms.

All the interconnected alarms will sound loud.

The Aico fire alarms - especially the Aico 3000 range - are interconnected throughout the home, and once one fire alarm is tested, all the others will sound loud.
