Mains powered carbon monoxide alarm

New from Aico – the domestic fire and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm manufacturer – is the Ei3018 mains powered carbon monoxide alarm. The product features the electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor which has a ten year life. It is pre-calibrated and tested in carbon monoxide gas, the makers report. When in alarm mode, the level of CO detected is indicated by the flash rate of the red LED on the unit and the sounder within it.

The Ei3018 features AudioLINK data extraction and SmartLINK wireless interconnection and whole system data monitoring. AudioLINK enables real time alarm data (such as the number of times tested and details of alarm activations) to be extracted to a smartphone or tablet via an app which creates an alarm status report. It identifies any issues, which besides offering safety can reduce the cost of return visits to a property. AudioLINK also aids compliance for landlords, providing proof that alarms are working at the start of a new tenancy and with annual Gas Safety Checks.

SmartLINK enables alarms and system accessories to be inter-connected using Radio Frequency (RF) signals rather than hard wiring. Hard wired interconnection is time consuming, disruptive and costly in properties, according to the firm, whereas wireless interconnection requires no redecorating. The new SmartLINK is described as smarter and easier to use than its predecessors and future-proof. Aico adds that it’s developing SmartLINK to enable a Gateway and Portal based system with real-time notifications.

The Ei3018 forms part of Aico’s 3000 Series mains powered alarms with ten year rechargeable lithium cell back-up launched by Aico last year. The Series includes Aico’s first Multi-Sensor Heat and Carbon Monoxide Alarm, a Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm and single sensor Optical and Heat Alarms, providing whole property coverage. All alarms in the 3000 Series use the same base, are fully compatible with all other Aico alarms and accessories and work with hard-wired, RadioLINK or hybrid interconnecting systems. Visit
