RadioLINK Wireless Interconnection – The easy way to interconnect alarms

RadioLINK wireless interconnection technology uses Radio Frequency (RF) signals to wirelessly link alarms together. Interconnecting alarms is vital so that occupants can hear the alarm throughout the property and is required in the British Standard BS 5839-6:2019+A1:2020.

Why should I choose wireless interconnection?

  • Eliminates tricky wiring runs
  • Saves time at installation
  • Reduces mess and disruption during installation
  • Saves money
  • Makes it easier to add in new alarms and accessories

Mains powered alarms will still need to be wired to the mains electricity but this can be from the nearest ceiling light, keeping disruption to a minimum.

How does it work?

RadioLINK wireless interconnection uses a mesh system so that all the alarms speak to each other and there are multiple paths for the activation signal to travel through. This ensures that every alarm receives the signal and, most importantly, sounds to give warning of a detection.

The range of RadioLINK’s RF signal is 100m with a clear line of sight and 30m in a standard property, meaning that in a normal installation you should have no problems with signals between alarms and RF signals have their own frequency so won’t be affected by Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or mobile phones.

How to fit a RadioLINK Base?

If you are using an alarm from the 140e Series, all you need to do is fit an RadioLINK base Ei168RC instead of an easi-fit base.

The installation of the Ei168RC base is exactly the same, the only difference is that the RadioLINK technology is already within the device.

Once you have fitted all bases and alarms you will need to connect the system (House Code) and seal them in, to ensure they are all speaking to each other.

The RadioLINK base is compatible with 140e Series alarms – Ei146e and Ei144e.

Already have a hard-wired interconnect system?

If you are setting up a new alarm system we would recommend using RadioLINK bases across all the alarms, but if you already have a hard-wired system it’s easy to add in RadioLINK alarms – we call this a hybrid system.

Swap one easi-fit base in the hard-wired system to a RadioLINK base and then install the rest of your RadioLINK and RadioLINK+ products. This one alarm will then be connected to the hard-wired system, but also send out and receive the RF signals linking everything together.
