FAQs (11)

Q. Please could you explain how the repeater function works on the Aico/Ei radio interlinked detectors.

A. Hello. The radioLINK repeater function allows the smoke alarm to "repeat" the radio frequency signal around obstructions. This stops the signal from becoming blocked and ensures that all interlinked alarms can be reached. This repeater function is built-in to the the Ei168RC radioLINK base (with Ei140, Ei160 or Ei2110 alarm), the Ei600 series of radio interlinked battery powered smoke and heat alarms as well as the Ei262 and Ei208WRF carbon monoxide alarms as standard. When house coded, the system works itself out which alarms are to act as repeaters - it's not something you set up yourself.

Q. Does this alarm conform to BS 5446 part 1 as recommended by the Fire Service?

A. This recommendation has been superseded by BS 14604:2005. All of our smoke and heat alarms conform to this standard in accordance with the Kitemark.

Q. Can the Ei600RF series be connected with a CO detector?

A. Yes, the Ei208WRF CO detector is suitable and we recommend that you also install a Ei412 locator switch to allow you to find out if an alarm was caused by CO gas or by a fire.

Q. What is the difference between Ei3100RF radio-interlinked smoke alarm series and the Ei600 series of radio-interlinked smoke alarms? Why does one cost much more than the other?

A. The EI600RF series are a later model and on top of all the features that the Ei3100RF offers, the series has the possibility to use the locate feature in the control switch, making the product more similar to a BS5839 part 6 Grade A alarm system. Additionally, the Ei600 series smoke alarms are offered with a true ten year life sealed lithium battery which makes the alarms acceptable in most circumstances as a BS5839 part 6 Grade D fire alarm system. This offers a substantial saving to customers, as it replaces the need for an electrician installing mains powered alarms.

Q. If the radio interlinking signal on one unit fails will the units still work as stand alone units.

A. Yes, should the radio interlinking signal fail the units will continue to sound independently should they detect a fire.

Does what it says on the tin. Slightly difficult to work out how to put them together. Took about 20 mins of head scratching and deciphering instructions before it became clear. Since then, no trouble. Great bit of kit.

Five stars for the product, even our building control inspector was surprised with how they worked. He is now looking to recommend this product for property's that previously would have needed to have mains powered versions fitted which would require rewiring.

Product is absolutely fine, compact, stylish (as far as smoke alarms can be!) and no hassle of wiring. Only marked down a star due to very high cost, which could be mitigated in a situation where they could be used in place of mains powered interlinked alarms in order to comply with building regulations (presuming they do comply in that scenario). Had they been a bit cheaper I would have used these in all rooms, but I decided to mix them with the cheaper Ei3100 series alarms to keep the overall cost down. The Ei600 alarms are better looking for sure and the 10 year battery is nice to have, but you do pay a large premium for these features. The wireless interlink was easy to set up and is working fine across 7 interlinked alarms in our home. They also work fine interlinked with Ei3100 series alarms.
