The Ei3018 mains powered Carbon Monoxide Alarm from Aico – the UK’s market leader in domestic Fire and Carbon Monoxide Alarms – brings together the company’s very latest technologies into one alarm for exceptional protection.
At the heart of the Ei3018 Carbon Monoxide Alarm is Aico’s high performance, proven electrochemical Carbon Monoxide sensor which has a ten year life. It is pre-calibrated and tested in Carbon Monoxide gas to ensure accuracy. When in alarm mode, the level of Carbon Monoxide detected is indicated by the flash rate of the red LED on the unit and the sounder incorporated within it.
The Ei3018 comes with a number of sophisticated features including AudioLINK data extraction and SmartLINK wireless interconnection & whole system data monitoring capability.
Aico’s multiple award winning AudioLINK data extraction technology enables real time alarm data (e.g. number of times tested and details of alarm activations) to be extracted directly to a smartphone or tablet via an App which creates an Alarm Status Report. It identifies any issues enabling action to be taken immediately, which is effective for tenant safety and in reducing the cost of return visits to a property. AudioLINK also aids compliance for landlords, providing proof that alarms are working at the start of a new tenancy and with annual Gas Safety Checks.
Next generation Radio Frequency (RF) technology, SmartLINK enables alarms and system accessories to be interconnected using RF signals rather than hard wiring. Hard wired interconnection is time consuming, disruptive and costly in existing properties, whereas wireless interconnection is quick, easy and requires no redecorating. The new SmartLINK technology is smarter and easier to use than its predecessors and future-proof. What’s more, Aico is currently developing SmartLINK technology to enable a Gateway and Portal based system with real-time notifications.
The Ei3018 forms part of Aico’s new technologically advanced 3000 Series mains powered alarms with ten year rechargeable lithium cell back-up launched by Aico last year. In addition to this single sensor Carbon Monoxide Alarm, the Series includes Aico’s very first Multi-Sensor Heat & Carbon Monoxide Alarm, a Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm and single sensor Optical and Heat Alarms, providing whole property coverage from one Series. All alarms in the 3000 Series use the same easi-fit base (a first for Aico Carbon Monoxide Alarms), are fully compatible with all other Aico alarms and accessories and work with hard-wired, RadioLINK or hybrid interconnecting systems.
