Q Mumtaz Hussain • 11/13/2021, 11:26:04 AM How do we know that battery is dead or the electrical supply is missing
A Exit Light Co. Be sure to connect the battery when you install your unit. The unit is shipped to you with the battery disconnected so that it is not drained while in transit to you. Check the AC indicator light. If it is on, then you know that electrical power is reaching your unit. Once the battery is connected and allowed at least 48 hours to charge, then press the test button. This will interrupt the electricity coming into the unit and force it to operate on battery backup power.
