Honeywell R200S-1 Ultra Thin Smoke Alarm
Thank you for purchasing the Resideo R200S-1 smoke alarm. This product is suitable for indoor installation in domestic premises, including static holiday homes and caravans.
This manual contains important safety information about the installation and operation of the alarm. Please read the manual carefully and keep it in a safe place for future reference.
Where to install the device?
Please ensure that you also follow country-specific regulations and guidelines, such as: British BS5839-6 or German DIN14676. If in doubt, please check, for example by contacting your local Fire Service.
Where not to install the device
- In an environment with a risk of draught (e.g. close to air conditioning, fans, ventilation outlets)
- In areas where steam or fumes are emitted, e.g. kitchens – use R200H (alarm with heat sensor) instead
NOTE: To avoid sensor contamination, the smoke alarm should be removed from the mounting for the duration of any building work involving dust or debris. If this is not possible, the alarm vents must be fully covered with a brightly colored plastic bag or tape. When covered, the alarm will not detect fires or smoke, so remove the covering when the work is completed each day and replace it the following day if necessary.
WARNING: The alarm contains a permanently sealed, non-replaceable battery, and does not contain serviceable parts inside. Any attempt to open or repair it creates a risk of electric shock or malfunction.
Before commissioning the smoke alarm, it is important to activate and test it for correct operation:
- If you need to enable the tamper-proof locking feature, break off or cut off the small cylinder ①.
- Install the alarm in its mounting bracket ② and twist until it clicks ③. The LED indicators will flash once.
- The entire surface of the alarm cover is the test/silence button. Press it firmly for at least 3 seconds ④. The alarm will emit 3 short beeps.
- Release the button. The alarm may beep for a few seconds more, confirming it’s been activated.
Practice fire safety
If the alarm sounds, and you have not pushed the test button, it may be warning of a dangerous situation and your immediate response is necessary. If you are in any doubt regarding the cause of an alarm it should be assumed that the alarm is due to an actual fire and the dwelling should be evacuated. Expose everyone to the sound of a smoke alarm and explain what the sound means. Develop family escape plans, discuss them with all household members, and practice them regularly. Determine the exits from each room and an escape route to the outside from each exit. Teach all household members to touch the door and use an alternate exit when the door is hot. Teach household members to crawl along the floor to stay below smoke and dangerous gases. Establish a safe meeting place outside the building.
Recommended actions when smoke alarm warning has been activated
Raise the alarm by shouting: “Fire! Fire! Fire!”, or by banging metal objects together. Evacuate immediately, using the nearest fire exit. Do not stop to investigate the fire or to collect valuables or pets. Use your escape route to get everyone out and meet at an agreed point. Along the way, close any open doors, and only open the doors you need to go through. Check doors and handles with the back of your hand. If they feel warm, don’t open the door. If there is a lot of smoke, crawl along the floor as the air and visibility will be better.
Once you’ve got everyone out of the building, call the Fire Brigade from any phone. Give the operator your name and address. Don’t go back into the building for anything. If there is still someone inside, tell firefighters when they arrive – they will be able to find the person quicker and more safely than you. Find somewhere safe to wait for the Fire Brigade. When they arrive, try to give them as much information as possible about the fire and building.
Note: These guidelines will assist you in the event of a fire, however, to reduce the chance that fires will start, practice fire safety rules and prevent hazardous situations.

This smoke alarm is equipped with a self-testing mechanism. Additionally, we recommend testing the smoke alarm manually at least once per month by pressing the test/silence button. If the smoke alarm functions correctly, it will generate a loud beep. Due to the loudness of the alarm, make sure that you always stand at arm’s length distance from the unit when testing. If the smoke alarm does not generate the acoustic signal, it must be replaced immediately. Clean the smoke alarm at least once per month to remove dirt, dust or debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush and vacuum all sides of the smoke alarm. Do not remove the top cover to clean it inside. The alarm does not contain any serviceable parts inside – do not attempt to open or repair it. If the alarm shows any signs of damage, it must be replaced.

Do not test with smoke, as the results can be misleading unless special equipment is used. Prolonged exposure to low or high temperatures, or high humidity, may reduce battery life. Prolonged periods of alarm will reduce battery life. The latest design, materials and manufacturing techniques have been used in the construction of this Smoke alarm to minimize the risk of its contamination by dust, insects, etc. However, it is impossible to eliminate such risk, so ensure that the Smoke alarm is clean, and dust does not build up.
