Smoke, Fire & Gas Detection FAQs

Is there a way to control an interlinking smoke alarm system?

Yes, many manufacturers offer additional accessories which connect to existing systems to help manage them.

Some Aico / Ei models, for example, have the option to incorporate a manual call point, as well as test, silence and control switches so the alarm can be tested at ground level rather than reaching up to the ceiling.

Many manufacturers, including Aico / Ei and FireAngel, are also introducing Smart Home technology which, when using the appropriate module / gateway, will allow users to view the alarm system from their smartphone, as well as receive notifications of alarm activations, and test, silence and locate alarms via a smartphone app.
