FAQs (3)

Q. I want to interlink 4 x Ei166 smoke alarms with the Ei1529RC. Do I need a spacial base (Ei128R) or is it possible to do this with the standard base the alarms come with? Also, what would we need to add the SAB300C beacon to the system?

A. The Ei160 series of detectors can hard wire interconnect with the Ei1529RC switch without the need for the Ei128R relay base. You would however require the Ei128R relay base to connect the detectors to the SAB300C beacon.

Q. What is the difference between the Ei411H and the Ei1529RC test, silence and location switches?

A. The Ei1529RC is mains powered and wired into a network of mains powered smoke alarms, whilst the Ei411H has a long life 10 year battery and no wires. It is radio-interlinked with other Rf smoke alarms of the Ei family.

Q. Can I add a CO detector to a smoke alarm system with Ei160 alarms

A. Yes, the Ei262 is compatible and we recommend that you install a Ei1529RC locator switch as well which will allow you to find out whether an alarm is caused by CO gas or a fire
