Interlink

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 tables below show all the units that can interlink with the FireAngel Pro Wi-Safe 2 alarms.

FAQs (20)

Q. What smoke alarm should I use in a bedroom with an en suite bathroom?

A. It is usually recommended to install an optical smoke alarm in a bedroom. This is because optical smoke alarms are slightly quicker at detecting slow smouldering fires that can originate from upholstery type materials and over-heated wiring. Also, an optical smoke alarm would be less likely to sound a false alarm than an ionisation would, if steam/water droplets were present from the bathroom. Detectors should be installed as central to the room as possible; however for your application I would also consider the position of the en suite to make sure that the detector is not in the direct path of the joining door. This is just to try and avoid the chances of a false alarm. No detector is designed for use in bathroom areas.

Q. My ceiling light is on a dimmer switch. Can I still power my radio-interlinked mains smoke alarms from this lighting supply?

A. In modern housing the lighting circuit will travel around your house with the lights being fed from it. Between the circuit and the light will be a switch (or in this case a dimmer) which will control the light. Your mains powered alarms are connected directly to the circuit and have constant power, so are not affected by switches or dimmers.
In older homes that have not had the electrics updated this may not be the case so it is advisable to consult an electrician.

Q. How do I safely dispose of my old smoke alarms?

A. Safelincs is signed up to Valpak's WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Distributor Take-Back Scheme (Registration ID: 7370). Private households can therefore drop off their electronic and electrical fire safety waste at their municipal recycling centre when they are purchasing new products from us. To find your nearest recycling centre, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk.

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. 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.

Q. Can a wireless router interfere with the radio interlinked alarms?

A. A wireless router is very unlikely to interfere with the signal of your radio interlinked alarms, as the RF signal of the smoke alarms is digitally coded.

Q. is there a different alarm sound for optical and heat sensors to tell you the difference in what kind of fire it is?

A. 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.

Q. Do I need to take out all the batteries in my radio-interlinked alarms before adding a new alarm into the system?

A. No, you do not need to remove all the batteries. Just simply press the house code button on all the units. Please ensure that the batteries have full power as this could render the house code process incomplete.

Q. How long do the batteries last in smoke alarms?

A.

The 9V alkaline batteries last 12-18 months. Lithium batteries will usually last 5x longer than their alkaline counterparts, achieving around 5 years lifetime. Some lithium cells are also rechargeable, and when used in a mains-powered alarm may last for the entire functional lifespan of the alarm. Newer alarm models may also feature a "sealed" lithium battery. These batteries are specialist components which are designed to not be removed or need replacing by the user, and have been tested by the alarm manufacturer to ensure they last for the lifetime of the alarm.



Please Note: the actual lifetime of your batteries depends on how often the alarms are tested or activated, as sounding the alarm draws more power than when the alarms are "waiting" to detect fire. You should also read your alarm's manual to make sure you only use the recommended types and brands of batteries, as failing to follow these instructions may cause the alarm to malfunction, not alerting you in the event of a fire, and might also invalidate the warranty.

Q. Can a smoke alarm be fitted with a sticky adhesive pad in a let property?

A. 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.

Q. If a false alarm goes off can pressing the hush button on any of the interlinking alarms stop all the units beeping?

A. No, to stop the alarms from sounding the hush button on the unit that started the process needs to be pushed. Pressing any other unit will just silence that one unit. The unit can be identified by the rapidly flashing red LED.

Q. When the test button is pressed on an interlinking smoke alarm will this cause all the other units to go off, too?

A. Yes, by pressing the test button on one alarm all the units in that family will also be activated. To 'teach' the units which other smoke alarms belong to the same family, the smoke alarms have to be set up together during the installation. This is done by pressing a 'housecoding button' or similar process.

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.

Q. Do batteries in radio-interlinked alarms expire quicker than those in normal alarms?

A. Batteries in radio-interlinked alarms do expire quicker than in other smoke alarms. RF smoke alarms are, however, also available with a 10 year sealed long life lithium battery. This battery will last for the 10 year life of the smoke alarm.

Q. Do you need an electrician to connect mains powered smoke alarms?

A. It is necessary that an electrician installs mains powered smoke alarms.

Q. How long do smoke alarms last before needing replacement?

A. It is recommended that smoke alarms are replaced after 10 years. This is because the sensors in the smoke alarms become less sensitive and may not activate when a fire is present.

Q. Are there any restrictions to the distance a radio-interlinked smoke alarm will work?

A. Most radio-interlinked alarms have a range of 150 meters in an open space and up to 30 meters in buildings. The thickness of the walls and partitions will affect the travel distance of the signal.

Q. What is the best way to test my alarm?

A. We recommend testing alarms by pressing the test button built-in to the unit, as this is designed to simulate the detection of the target stimuli (usually smoke, heat, or CO) at the alarm sensor. You should test your alarms regularly to ensure they are protecting building occupants, preferably every week. For more detailed guidance, check the manual included with your alarm.

Q. Why do your mains powered alarms have batteries?

A. All our mains powered alarms have a battery backup. Although mains powered alarms without this option do exist (BS5839 part 6 grade E), we regard them as far too dangerous, as a lot of fires are caused by electrical faults leaving the building unprotected against fire if the smoke alarms have no backup battery. With our mains powered alarms you will always be protected.

Q. I want to install an interlinked smoke alarm system throughout my home, but what type of smoke alarms do I need in different rooms?

A. We recommend a heat alarm in the kitchen, optical alarms in living rooms and hallway and ionisation alarms on landings.
