Innovation, research and development are the life blood of Aico and it’s parent company, Ei Electronics. All the alarms and accessories are not just manufactured in the factory in Shannon, Ireland – working with Aico to gain customer and market input, it is the site for the complete product development from concept through to packaging.
To ensure that we continue to push innovation within the industry – we have a dedicated Research and Development Department tasked with developing new products and applications, adding new features to existing products and developing intellectual property, all in close partnership with our customers.
Ei Electronics and Aico currently hold over 20 patents on life saving technologies, making alarm detection the best it can be. These include advancements in sensor designs, innovation in battery power supplies and even patents on parts of the manufacturing process itself.
Through developing these technologies and thinking of new and better ways to detect fire and carbon monoxide in domestic environments, Ei Electronics have been the first to market with these ground breaking innovations:
Aico and Ei Electronics are committed to continuing this drive for innovation. The fire detection industry has already changed from the first standalone alarms in the 1960’s, to interconnected systems in the 1990’s and fully integrated systems in the 2010’s. As we move into the 2020’s Aico and Ei Electronics will still be pushing the way forward in a future of digital information and virtual systems.
