The Ei2110 multi-sensor alarm requires a 230V AC mains power supply. Up to 12 Ei2110 and Ei160 series of alarms can be hard wire interconnected on one circuit.
To obtain a mains feed, the first alarm can be connected to the nearest lighting circuit using 2 core and earth cable. From this alarm, 3 core and earth cable is required for all additional alarms, which allows for the hard wire interconnection to work. Please see the diagram below:-
Alternatively, the alarms can be hard wired using a dedicated circuit from the distribution board.
This is the technical data for the Mains Powered Combined Optical Smoke and Heat Alarm with Lithium Back-up Battery - Ei2110.
|Back-Up Battery||10 year sealed lithium cell|
|Sound Output||85dB (minimum) at 3m|
|Temperature Range||0°C to 40°C|
|Humidity Range||15% to 95% Relative Humidity|
The following technical data sheets are available for this product:
Q. For mains powered Aico smoke and heat alarms, when the electricity supply fails and the back up battery takes over, please can you tell me how long the battery will last in this situation?
A. For mains powered Aico alarms with a new, fully charged lithium back up battery, the battery would last approx. 3-6 months without a mains supply. For mains powered Aico alarms with a standard alkaline back up battery, the battery would last up to a year without mains supply. If the alarm has been installed with an Ei168RC radio frequency base, please note that the Ei168RC back up battery would last approx 2 months if the power fails.
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A. This recommendation has been superseded by BS 14604:2005.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 mains powered smoke alarm range be connected to mains power via the lighting circuit?
A. Yes, hard-wired mains powered alarms can be wired to the unswitched live feed of the nearest frequently used lighting circuit.
Q. Does the Ei2110 multi sensor model need to be fitted by a qualified electrician?
A. We would always recommend a qualified electrician to fit these mains powered smoke alarms for you .
Q. What sort of smoke alarm system would I need to install for a HMO?
A. BS 5839-6 recommends that one or two storey HMOs with an individual floor area of no more than 200sqm (not the total of both floors) should have a Grade D smoke alarm system installed. Grade D refers to mains powered smoke alarms with a back up battery power supply. The alarms can be interlinked either by wire or by radio signal and the system does not require a separate fire alarm panel. For HMOs of 3 storey or higher, a Grade A panel system would need to be installed. This can cover the whole of the building, or can be used just for the communal areas with a separate Grade D system installed for the individual dwellings. For both applications, the level of cover should be a minimum of LD3 (in all escape routes) but this may change according to the fire risk assessment.Show all FAQs

Easy to fit and very helpful customer service on the best product to buy for my circumstances My previous smoke alarm used to go off constantly, triggered by steam, even when doing the ironing. This one has proved to work only when needed, when I burnt the toast!

Tidy looking, robust design with impressive longevity After shopping around for ages, reading up on all the different options of detectors out there. I spoke with Safelincs staff in an IM chat on a few occasions and they really reassured me in my choices and where knowledgeable and helpful. Although having shopped about they are not the cheapest out there, it was their customer service that made me purchase from them above their competitors.

Well designed sensor, but not ideal near showers! I bought this as a step up from my ionisation sensor which triggered most times we cook in the adjacent kitchen. We now have less cooking related alarms, but the shower is also adjacent and is now the lead culprit! Great easily exchanged design, link system and rechargeable battery makes this easy maintenance.
