Halo has two different kinds of voice alerts - Pre-Alerts and Emergency Alarms.
Pre-Alert Notifications: When smoke levels have increased but have not reached an emergency alarm level, Halo will announce a caution alert as an early warning. Halo will pulse an amber light and tell you the location of the alert. You will receive a push notification on your phone when this occurs.
Emergency Alarms: Once the smoke or carbon monoxide has reached critical levels, Halo will begin pulsing red, and begin a specific horn pattern based on the detected emergency. Halo will also announce in the room in which the emergency has been detected. If both smoke and carbon monoxide are present, the smoke alarm will take priority.
Pre-Alerts and Emergency Alarms can be hushed (silenced) by using the Halo app or pressing the center Halo button. In some cases, the smoke or CO level may be too high for the Emergency Alarm to be hushed. Only silence the alarm when you have checked the conditions surrounding your Halo. Halo will announce it has been silenced when hushed properly.
Silencing by Halo App
- Open the Push Notification for the alert you received
- You will be redirected to what we call "Alert Pop-Up"
- Tap the "Hush Alarm" button
- Halo will stop flashing a color & display a solid color (RED, GREEN or BLUE)
- Similar to Simon Game, Select the color on the Halo App that the corresponds to the Halo.
- Do this correctly three times in a row, and your Halo will silence
Do not silence Halo by disconnecting it from the Halo power connector and/or removing its battery. This will result in the alarm being unable to detect smoke or carbon monoxide, leaving your home at risk.
