How To Replace a Battery in a Wireless Smoke Detector (DSC-WS4916) for Power Series Commercial Security Alarm Monitoring Systems

(Disclaimer – Call your security company to prevent unnecessary calls and dispatches Prior to proceeding)

  • DSC smoke detectors are installed on a mounting plate for easy removal, so the first thing we have to do is take the unit off of that mounting plate.
  • Using your hand, rotate the smoke detector counter clockwise so that the line on the smoke detector and the line on the mounting plate line up. You can now remove the smoke detector from the mounting plate.
  • Your keypad may start to beep when removed from the wall. This normal.
  • Once removed, you will see the batteries on the back of the unit.
  • Remove both batteries and replace with the new CR123 batteries.
  • Re-mount the smoke detector by lining up the lines on the mounting plate and the smoke detector, and turning the unit clockwise. You will hear a slight ‘click’.
  • Call our monitoring station back to makes sure everything has reset. You may need to enter your code on the keypad acknowledge the tamper trouble that was caused by removing the unit from the wall.

That is it, you’re done!
