Testing First Alert Smoke Alarm

How do I test First Alert Smoke Alarm without triggering a false alarm?

Hi @tampaken. You can test it without worrying as long as you’re on Self Monitoring rather than Professional Monitoring. You can swap in the Ring App by tapping the 3 lines in the top left to open up the Main Menu > Settings > Monitoring > Professional and this will bring up the option to choose between Self Monitoring and Professional Monitoring. You can then test the alarm as you see fit without any police response or calls from our monitoring center. Once you finish testing, you can swap back to Professional Monitoring using the same steps. I hope that helps! :slight_smile:
