I have a First Alert ZCombo alarm integrated with Smart Things. Yesterday, I received a text that the fire alarm was going off in the nursery. I checked and there was no visible sign at the alarm and it was definitely not going off.
I checked the notifications and it appears that the alarm detected smoke (according to ST) but at the same time it was in testing mode. It was now stuck in testing mode and orange.
With no options left, I had the take the batteries out and reset and manually test it at the alarm. This reset it as “clear”.
Anyone else have this problem? It was odd…not a huge problem but odd that it said it was detecting smoke but at the physical alarm it was not sounding off.
Also, is there a way to reset the status from the app or would I always have to manually take the batteries out?
