Alarm Control is important if you have multiple alarms around a property. This becomes even more important when you have a mixture of Smoke, Heat and Carbon Monoxide.
The problem – In a block of flats, a domestic alarm system has been fitted inside the flats with a Fire Panel System in the communal areas. With the alarms standalone, the panel system will not pick up the fire until it has spread throughout the flat.
If all the alarms within the property are sounding – pressing ‘Locate’ will silence all the alarms apart from the one that has triggered the alarm system. This may be helpful when you are dealing with a silent and invisible danger like Carbon Monoxide.
If it is a Carbon Monoxide leak that has triggered the alarms this function will not work, as it would be incredibly dangerous.
When you have a Fire within a property you need to close all the doors and windows, when you have a Carbon monoxide leak you need to open them – this means it’s important for you to be able to tell what kind of alarm has activated and which course of action you should take. The Alarm Controller Ei450 displays clear LED icons that instantly identify the type of danger that has caused the activation.
