Q. Please could you explain how the repeater function works on the Aico/Ei radio interlinked detectors.
A.

Hello. The radioLINK repeater function allows the smoke alarm to "repeat" the radio frequency signal around obstructions. This stops the signal from becoming blocked and ensures that all interlinked alarms can be reached. This repeater function is built-in to the the Ei168RC radioLINK base (with Ei140, Ei160 or Ei2110 alarm), the Ei600 series of radio interlinked battery powered smoke and heat alarms as well as the Ei262 and Ei208WRF carbon monoxide alarms as standard. When house coded, the system works itself out which alarms are to act as repeaters - it's not something you set up yourself.

Q. What is the difference between Ei3100RF radio-interlinked smoke alarm series and the Ei600 series of radio-interlinked smoke alarms? Why does one cost much more than the other?
A.

The EI600RF series are a later model and on top of all the features that the Ei3100RF offers, the series has the possibility to use the locate feature in the control switch, making the product more similar to a BS5839 part 6 Grade A alarm system. Additionally, the Ei600 series smoke alarms are offered with a true ten year life sealed lithium battery which makes the alarms acceptable in most circumstances as a BS5839 part 6 Grade D fire alarm system. This offers a substantial saving to customers, as it replaces the need for an electrician installing mains powered alarms.

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. Do the radio interlinked units give out a constant signal all the time and does this decrease the battery life more than a non-interlinked alarm?
A.

Yes, radio interlinked alarms are periodically sending and receiving signals from other units in the network and therefore the life of the battery is reduced. Units with alkaline batteries should have the batteries are changed annually [unless they are fitted with a sealed 10 year battery as eg in the Ei600RF series].

Q. What is the difference between Ei605TYCRF and Ei605CRF smoke alarms, can both be used with the EI412 remote control panel?
A.

The Ei605TYCRF comes with a ten year lithium battery, this should last for the life span of the alarm. The Ei605CRF comes with an alkaline battery that will need to be changed every 12 months. As these alarms are part of the Ei600 series they are both compatible with the Ei412.

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. Where more than one radio-interlinked battery operated smoke alarm is installed, if the battery in one alarm failed would the other alarms be affected?
A.

If one alarm was to malfunction the other units would not be affected, if it was due to alarm failure. If the fault was with the radio-interlinking signal, then all alarms that are in the chain after the faulty alarm would be affected and they would not go off.

Q. Do the Ei600 series alarms need 230v or do they just use battery?
A.

The Ei600 series of radio-interlinked alarms are completely battery operated. This means that they do not need to be wired up to the mains circuit. On the website, we offer the Ei600 series with a standard 9v battery or with a 10 year lithium longlife battery. The standard 9V batteries last approximately 12-18 months depending on how often the detectors are tested. The lithium battery units are sealed and last 10 years i.e. the full lifespan of the detector.

Q. Are the battery radio-interlinked smoke alarms suitable to install in a four storey house with thick walls?
A.

Our radio-interlinked smoke detectors have a radio frequency range of about 30 meters in buildings. This means that as long as the detectors are all within 30 meters of each other, the interconnection should be achieved. Some of the RF smoke alarms can also act as repeaters, which means that larger distances can be achieved. So, a four storey house should normally be suitable for RF install.

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.
