Trying to pair Visonic MCT-427 sma Smoke Detector with control center

I talked with a tech to determine if the Visonic MCT-427 SMA Smoke and heat detector is compatible with the xfinity home system.  The tech said yes.  He also said I should be able to connect the detector to the system by my self.  If I had trouble he said I would probably have to call for service.  So, I have tried to pair the device with my system without luck.

I bring up the correct menu on the pad of my home system and there is no link to add a smoke detector.  So I selected other.  I followed the pairing instructions that came with the detector without luck.  I am unable to connect via the Home app on my phone because there is no icon for smoke detector.

 

Has anyone had luck in pairing this smoke detector to their home system?

 

Thank you in advance.

Re: Trying to pair Visonic MCT-427 sma Smoke Detector with control center

Is there a way for a technician to give me a code to rename a couple sensors?  My sunroom, for example, is now a "living room," and I would very much like to change some zone names around.  I have done it many times with the 4321, but of course, can't do that anymore.  Which ya know, gripes me pretty hard... Not fond of having my Comcast account for ten years just to suddenly be forced into having a paid service call to change some zone names.

My guess is that calling 1-877-298-0874 is faster than getting a response here.

The generic code that you shared is what the techs use on our end as well. Please send me a private message with your account information if you need any further assistance.

Any tips other than calling Comcast support. I’ve had techs to the house twice now only to have them leave without doing anything for various silly reasons.

Hello, I am being told over the phone by Xfintiy that Smoke Detectors must be set up by a service Tech. Is this true? I would like to do myself and save the $70 fee

If you want the XHome security system to monitor a smoke alarm, you have to have tech visit.

I have put smoke alarms in my home and they are not connected to the Xhome system.

Re: Trying to pair Visonic MCT-427 sma Smoke Detector with control center

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to install this Visonic MCT-427 smoke detector myself and can't find an option in the touch screen for this device.  How can I pair to my Xfinity Home without calling out another technician (had one here just last week to install the security system, but he was suggesting for some reason not to try to use Xfinity for monitoring Fire).  When I called today, they said that monitoring was covered for no additional monthly fee, but couldn't give me instructions for installation over the phone.

 

Thanks,

Nick

Thanks Dan,

Do I need to install batteries and mount them before the technician arrives, or is that part of their $70 service at least?

Appreciated,
Nick

Hello grenick, thank you for posting. A technician is required to add these smoke detectors to your system, I replied to your private message please reach back out to me there to schedule a tech to come out or if you have any further questions.
