Smoke alarms communicate without wires

Published:  10 August, 2004

This mounting base for Aico mains-powered smoke alarms adds the capability of interconnection using radio frequencies.

A mounting base for Aico mains-powered smoke alarms enables them to communicate without using cables. The Ei168 Radio-Link RF Interconnect mounting base can be used with Ei140 and Ei160 smoke alarms.

Up to 12 units can be interconnected into a single system. A programmable repeater enables the RF single to travel greater distances. Optical, ionisation and heat alarms can all be used, as required.

Rechargeable standby, tamper-proof cells with a life expectancy of at least 10 years are built in.
