Mains powered with a self-charging lifetime lithium back-up battery, the FireAngel Pro HT-230 heat alarm can be hard-wire interlinked with up to 30 alarms within a single system. The HT-230 heat alarm is quick to detect increase in room temperature, making it ideal for areas where a smoke alarm would be prone to false activation, such as kitchens and garages.
In a wireless-only system the maximum number of compatible units that can interlink is 50, while a hard-wired-only system is limited to 30 units. In a mixed hard-wired and wireless alarm system these maximum quantities can be exceeded.
For each "group" of hard-wired alarms in a system, only one should be a wireless model. For example, in a 3 storey house you could hard-wire 2x ST-230 and 1x WST-230 alarms together on each floor with all of the WST-230 models wirelessly interlinked to each other. This can technically be done to a maximum of 50 groups of 30 alarms, though FireAngel has not designed, optimised, or tested these alarms for such a large system. Having so many alarms interlinked would create large communication delays between the alarms, potentially resulting in occupants not being given adequate warning of a fire. It is heavily recommended that customers desiring a large amount of alarms for a single property instead look into full Fire Alarm Systems which are designed for larger premises.
The table below shows all the units that can interlink with the FireAngel Pro alarms.

We recommend a heat alarm in the kitchen, optical alarms in living rooms and hallway and ionisation alarms on landings.
The sticky pad is suitable for all battery operated smoke alarms. However, we cannot judge if battery alarms are suitable for your let property, as let properties usually require mains powered alarms. There is some advice to this in the governments guides to fire risk assessments. http://www.safelincs.co.uk/Fire-Risk-Assessment/ Also see the LACoRS guide for let properties.
There is only one alarm sound type when a fire is detected, when interconnected all smoke and heat alarms will sound. However only the triggered alarm will have a rapidly flashing red indicator.
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.
Every FireAngel FAHT230 is supplied with the following components.
