The BAT-Fire provides input that can be used to monitor an FACP’s alarm, AC fail, and trouble points as well as plethora of other applications. BAT-Fire will continually monitor the state of the FACP points. A state change on a BAT-Fire input will be reported to the central station as configured. BAT-Fire inputs are at input voltage and are looking to drop voltage to create an event on the I/O. Configure the Input using the following steps.

1. First navigate to the BAT-Fire account in AlulaConnect and select the BAT-Fire you plan to configure for point capture.

2. Select “I/O Ports” tab from the top menu.

3. Click the Edit button on the I/O you wish you configure.

4. Click “Configure as Input”

5. Program the input with Sensor Type, Report Code, Zone Number, and Zone Name.*

6. Save and test input.
