Ask the Technician
J Wrote:Hi. Do the technicians have to reprogram the fire alarm system after relocating devices just a few inches from their original position? In this case two strobes are being relocated. One is moved to an adjacent wall and the other one is moved about 2 feet away.
Thanks in Advance

I assume that the strobes are tested by using input devices to put the panel into alarm to see what happens - make sure the strobes light during an alarm. If the whole system works as it is supposed to, and the panel doesn't show any trouble, no programming is needed.
