Statistics show that the risk of injury or death is significantly lower when a fire is detected early. To provide the earliest possible warning of a fire, an interconnected fire alarm system should be installed throughout your home using a number of detectors. A cost-effective and hassle-free solution is to install RadioLINK fire alarms, which do not need any wires or cables to connect the devices: just a connection to the mains power. 

Creating an addressable fire alarm system is simple with Aico RadioLINK-enabled devices. Not only will the system respond quickly to a possible fire, it can also help locate the source of a fire using a single wireless control panel. It is also easy to extend or replace your fire alarm system when your circumstances (or legal standards) change.

RadioLINK systems are fully compliant with the standards set in BS 5839: Pt. 6, 2004. The Ei168RC RadioLINK base unit is compatible with all Aico Ei160 or Ei140-series smoke/heat alarms, and the unique Easi-fit design makes it easy to install an Aico fire alarm almost anywhere in your home.

Interconnecting mains powered smoke alarms is essential to provide the earliest possible warning of a fire. Fire statistics show that the quicker occupants are alerted to a fire, the less risk of death or injury there is. Furthermore, property damage is also reduced. But hard wired interconnection is expensive, time consuming and disruptive. A hard wired system is also difficult and expensive to reconfigure when circumstances (or standards) change. 

RadioLINK is the solution. With RadioLINK, mains powered smoke alarms are interconnected by wireless signals rather than cabling. It's so much simpler, more convenient - and easier to change or extend as and when required. The use of radio interconnection in Grade D alarm systems means that it is now much easier to comply with the extended alarm coverage recommended in BS 5839: Pt.6: 2004. With no interconnect wiring required, the contractor and specifier can agree fixed costs - allowing a quicker, simpler and more cost effective solution to smoke and heat alarm installation.

At the heart of the RadioLINK system are the Ei168RC base units, which are fully compatible with any Ei160 or Ei140 Series alarm. It is from here that radio signals are transmitted and received. An Ei168RC base is required for all alarms in the system.
