Aico is more than just a manufacturer of alarms.

We constantly search for ways we can develop our systems to offer improved protection, even greater reliability and easier installation and maintenance. For that reason, innovation, research and development are the life blood of Aico, and of our parent company Ei Electronics.

To this end, we have a dedicated Research and Development Department within our factory, tasked with creating new products and applications, adding new features to existing products and developing intellectual property, all the time working closely with our customers.

Life-saving Technologies

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.

Continued Innovation

Aico 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.
