The FireAngel SW1-R optical smoke alarm is mains powered with a replaceable 9V back-up battery and large, central test and silence button. Two LED status indicators are positioned prominently on the alarm, one clearly showing whether or not mains power is active and the other will light up to indicate a fault or alarm when necessary. Up to 12 W1-R and W1-PF series alarms can be interlinked together via a dedicated cable, including the CW1-PF-T mains powered carbon monoxide alarm, to provide full coverage and reliable warning of possible danger throughout the premises. To ensure that there is a back-up in case of a mains power failure, these alarms also feature a 'safety clip' which prevents them from being fitted to the base plate without a battery.
The table below shows all the units that can interlink with the FireAngel W1-R alarms.

We recommend a heat alarm in the kitchen, optical alarms in living rooms and hallway and ionisation alarms on landings.
It is necessary that an electrician installs mains powered smoke alarms.
The 9V alkaline batteries and AA alkaline batteries generally last 12 to 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.
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.
