Choosing the Right Smoke / Heat Alarm with Wireless Interconnection

Advanced technology has made innovations in all types of devices possible, and this includes smoke alarms; it is important to choose the right smoke or heat alarm. A modern domestic smoke alarm still performs its fundamental task of detecting smoke, but now comes with a host of additional functions that will enhance the safety of tenants, while adding more flexibility. A good example of the new breed of advanced fire alarms came with Aico’s 3000 Series, which held a range of features never before seen on a fire alarm. With the 3000 Series, Aico combined cutting-edge intelligent design with SmartLink and AudioLINK capabilities, which enabled them to interlink and share data. Clearly, a new dawn of smart fire alarms is upon us. In this article, Sparks will explain why you should upgrade to an advanced wireless alarm system - if you haven’t done so already! Different type of Smoke Alarms It may be confusing to decide which type of alarm will best suit which area of your house. Aico has this detailed guide that gives advice on the placement of different alarm types. Ionisation sensors are recommended for use in bedrooms only, due to their sensitivity and propensity for triggering false alarms. Heat sensors react to fast-flaming, high-intensity fires, without detecting smaller particles from cooking fumes. They are recommended for use in garages and kitchens, where there is a serious risk of high-heat flames caused by grease fires. Optical sensors contain an infrared (IR) beam that detects smoke particles from slow, smouldering fires. They are designed to detect intense, smouldering flames emanating from the kitchen with their intelligent IR beams. It is important that we understand the difference in alarm types before we look at how they interconnect for our protection. Why have modern wireless alarm technology in your household? Building Regulations and BS 5839-6 are examples of British legislation that require landlords and homeowners to have interconnected alarms. This is important as it has made a huge impact on fire alarm manufacturers in recent years. Many have chosen to stick to alarms that are physically wired together, however, there are many problems with these systems. The chief reasons are that they can create significant disruption, interference and material damage. This problem can easily be avoided with the use of wireless systems and Radio Frequency (RF) signals. Installing alarms with wireless interconnection is straightforward once you get your various alarms to ‘talk’ to each other via the RF signals. This can be achieved with the click of a button in the case of Aico’s 3000 Series. Look at this guide on how to ‘House-Code’ Aico’s 3000 range here, to understand how effortless it can be. The advantages of a wireless alarm system Wireless systems have many benefits over hardwired systems, some of which are: Control of large systems from one switch When interconnected alarms became increasingly popular, the average household alarm system expanded in size. The reason is simply that the features made them easier to control from a single location. Make sure whichever system you choose, it includes the Test, Silence and Locate features. These are intrinsic to a large system as you can test and silence all alarms conveniently from a single switch. This means you can quickly identify whatever alarm was triggered. Using more advanced systems, such as Aico’s 3000 Series, you could also generate a RadioLINK+ report that would give you more detailed information about any alarm triggers. The compatibility of RF technology RF technology makes it extremely easy to connect different alarm types e.g a fire alarm to an Aico Ei3018 Carbon Monoxide alarm. However, it also has the advantage of being able to interconnect with completely different devices. Modern fire alarms can be usefully linked to all manner of devices, like sprinkler systems for instance. Having a direct connection between a fire alarm system and a sprinkler system may be life-saver, and is a great example of what modern technology offers to fire alarms. Data extraction Data extraction technology has real benefits for both residents and social housing providers. They can access information on battery back-up or battery life, alarm sensor status, the number of times tested and removed and alarm activations. This is great for landlords as they can ensure they are complying with government regulations. More advanced systems, such as Aico’s 3000 Series, are able to generate an AudioLINK+ report for this comprehensive information. Aico: customer safety and convenience first It is reassuring to know that manufacturers have a responsibility to guarantee that any ‘next-gen’ alarm is easy and intuitive to use (as well as to install). We hope this guide helps you to choose the right smoke or heat alarm. As well as making their alarms simple to use and connect, Aico offers practical training and advice delivered to your home. Their Mobile Training & Demonstration Units deliver detailed smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm product and technology information, and well-accredited training. Aico have taken their responsibility for consumer safety very seriously.

Aico Alarms Fault Finding - 10 Questions and Answers, Aico Heat, Smoke, CO Alarms

As with most technology, you may experience technical faults with Aico’s range of alarms. Aico has a helpful page for basic fire alarm and cleaning maintenance advice. This Sparks guide goes into more depth concerning Aico alarms fault-finding. We will advise you on how to resolve various issues that may arise, and ten of these questions we try to answer are: Why is my smoke or heat alarm sounding for no reason? Why is there a regular single beep coming from my smoke or heat alarm? Why is there an irregular beep coming from my smoke or heat alarm? Why aren’t my alarms interconnecting via RadioLink+ interconnect? Why aren’t my alarms interconnecting via hard-wired interconnect? How do I fix the test button, if it isn’t working? Why aren’t alarm accessories working with all or some alarms? Why is my Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm sounding? Why is my Carbon monoxide alarm giving a regular single beep? Why is my CO alarm beeping irregularly? Why is my smoke or heat alarm sounding for no reason? Identify the alarm with the flashing red light. Press the ‘Hush’ button to silence it. If this doesn’t work, clean the alarm using a vacuum. Wait for 10 minutes and the problem should be resolved. After dealing with the errant alarm, take the following steps: If using RadioLINK+, ensure that the alarms have been properly House-Coded. Reset and House-Code the RadioLINK+ system. Check that any old hard-wire interconnection wires have been disposed of. See if there are any cooking fumes or steam around the alarm in question. If this is the case, it may be situated incorrectly for the alarm type. Look into where your alarm should be placed. Sparks sells Aico’s Ei3014 heat alarm, Ei3016 optical smoke alarm, as well as other heat and smoke alarms. We also suggest you read more about the recommended sites for locating these alarms. Why is there a regular single beep coming from my smoke or heat alarm? If the green power light is off, check your fuses and wiring. If the alarm is a 140RC Series, detach the alarm from its base and change the battery. Why is there an irregular beep coming from my smoke or heat alarm? Check the wiring (and connection) of the alarm. Find any gaps where cables enter the base of the alarm. Fill in these gaps so that cold air is unable to enter. Look to see if there is anything on the same circuit that could be causing electrical interference. For instance, a central heating pump on the same circuit may be creating problems. Clean the alarms thoroughly. Why aren’t my alarms interconnecting via RadioLink+ interconnect? Press and hold the ‘Test’ button for 10 seconds. Ensure that your alarms have been House-Coded. See that the earth cable hasn’t been wired into the ‘IC’ terminal. If the wires insulation has been tested with high voltage, replace the alarms and bases. Face the bases of the replacement alarms in the same direction, to maximise signal strength. Why aren’t my alarms interconnecting via hard-wired interconnect? Press and hold the ‘Test’ button for 10 seconds. Examine interconnecting wires to ensure they are wired properly. Check for short circuits. This is a circuit that is allowing current to pass along an unintended path. If the Live and Neutral wires have become entangled, the alarm will be impaired. See the wiring guide for advice on how to fix the wire and replace the alarm. How do I fix the test button, if it isn’t working? Press and hold the ‘Test’ button for 10 seconds. Establish that the alarm is connected to the base. Why aren’t alarm accessories working with all or some alarms? Ensure the alarms and their accessories are compatible. On a RadioLINK+ system, make sure they are House-Coded. If the hard-wired system is interconnected, make sure all the connections and wiring are correctly positioned for alarms and their accessories. See that the units are receiving power and all switches are turned on. Check if the alarms themselves are operational. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHPrviAre_A Why is my Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm sounding? Be very careful; there are likely to be dangerous levels of carbon monoxide present. Turn off the appliance and open all windows and doors. Then leave your home. Call the emergency number for the gas or fuel supplier. Do not re-enter the property until the alarm has stopped. Use an AudioLINK report to extract details about the incident (if applicable for the alarm). Note: Sparks sells Aico’s Ei3018 CO alarm, along with many other CO alarms. We’d suggest you read over the recommended sites for alarm placement. Why is my Carbon monoxide alarm giving a regular single beep? If the green light is off, examine the fuses and wiring. Use an AudioLINK report to extract details about the incident (if applicable for the alarm). Why is my CO alarm beeping irregularly? Examine the wiring and connections. If the green light has gone out, check the fuses. Check to see if there is any other appliance on the same circuit which could be creating electrical interference. Use an AudioLINK report to extract details about the incident (if applicable for the alarm). We hope this article has given you answers to any questions you may have regarding faults with Aico alarms. As you can gather from this guide, most problems are easy to address and solve in a few steps. Aico’s site has fantastic technical support if you find yourself in need of it.

Keep your Family Safe this Festive Season while Enjoying the Christmas Lights

This festive season we here at Sparks are looking at how to keep you safe from any electrical catastrophes and ensure your safety during this merry time of the year, for Christmas safety is a must. We all know there are plenty of distractions during the holidays - distant relatives come to visit, chattering, clambering children, the big dinner to prepare, and eggnog flowing freely. This is why it is essential to stay on top of electrical-based Christmas tree fires, overloaded circuits and various problems associated with poorly maintained lighting. We at Sparks are at hand to help guide you through Christmas with tips on how to use RCDs and fire alarms to avert a Christmas disaster and ensure everyone has a jolly good time. How to protect yourself from the dangers of circuit overloading this Christmas - exterior lighting People tend to overload on Christmas lights this time of year, and this includes with exterior Christmas lighting. Unfortunately once they are in the festive mood, people are prone to overloading various devices by plugging in Christmas lights into fixtures or using cheap screw-in adapters, which you should definitely avoid doing. Many households put on extravagant outdoor light shows, which can often spell a recipe for disaster. Electrical Safety First advises that all outdoor lights are protected via a 30mA RCD protected socket. We can provide plenty of these potentially life-saving RCDs here at Sparks, built to withstand the harsh outdoor winter elements. If you are running lengthy wires to fashion an attractive outdoor display, it is imperative that you choose an extension cord that is weather resistant and designed to accommodate the necessary amount of wattage. If things do go wrong: the best Fire Alarms for Christmas tree fires and protecting your family According to one report 62% of British households use real Christmas trees, which are prone to drying out and are more susceptible to fire than plastic trees - especially when they go unwatered! A study from CBS News found that 45% of people do not water their Christmas trees daily, even with the knowledge they should do. A pediatric burn surgeon warned that: a dry tree can ignite a room a room in less than a minute and lead to one of the deadliest types of fire that can involve entire families. The most obvious tip for avoiding this type of nasty fast-moving fire is obviously attending to your Christmas tree and observing these safety rules for not overloading your sockets. However, if worse comes to worse, it is essential that you have the best possible fire response plan in place. We would strongly advise installing the RadioLink+ enabled Aico 3000 Series, which are able to wirelessly communicate with each other and sound of an alarm across all attached devices as soon as one is activated. For a fast-flaming fire that would be caused by a Christmas tree fire, we would highly recommend the Aico Ei161e, an Ionisation smoke alarm that is particularly reactive to small smoke particles and speedy fires. The Aico Ei161e is highly responsive and will react quickly enough to ensure that a small disaster doesn't turn into a bigger one. Similarly, the Aico Ei164e Heat Alarm contains a fast-reacting thermistor that will immediately pick up on any sudden rise in temperature. Any of these models come highly recommended for your living room this Christmas; once again it is always important to plan for the worse if other preventative measures don't work. General Tips for ensuring your safety from electrical-based fires this Christmas: Avoid using cheap, screw-in adapters. If you are using an adapter, make sure it is bought from a reputable source. Don't overload adapters with Christmas lights. Ensure all outdoor lights are connected by a RCD-protected socket. Inspect Christmas lights before usage. Check them visually for any cracks or fractures and ensure there are no sign of stretching, that no bare wire is visible and there are no broken bulbs or bulb holders. Invest in LED lighting. The Technical Regulations manager from IET advised that LED Christmas lights have massive advantages to traditional lighting in terms of fire safety and energy efficiency. Even Christmas lights need a break, so switch them off when you’re not there to enjoy them, to avoid energy wastage and overheating.

Available for all parties - landlords, contractors and residents alike - this is a comprehensive system that will save time and money, as well as ensuring maximum home fire safety. Intelligent design for intelligent protection: 'Full Circle Protection' offered by the Aico 3000 Series Full Circle Protection combines Fire and CO alarms and offers you all-encompassing protection: both in terms of initial fire protection and the analysis and monitoring of your fire alarm data. In 2018, Aico launched the 3000 Series of Fire and CO alarms, that included their innovative 'full circle' protection. The Managing Director of Aico stated that: The 3000 Series represents one of the most significant advances of the Aico product range in recent years. It's the coming together of the very latest alarm technologies ... we refer to the 3000 Series as having 'intelligent simplicity' - we've built intelligence in to every alarm.A prime example of Full Circle Protection is the Aico 3024 Multi-Sensor alarm from the 3000 Series. The Multi-Sensor technology in the Aico 3024 contains two types of sensors: heat and optical, that guarantee you a complete fire response. The infrared optical sensor is made of a bonded protective mesh which encapsulates the whole sensor to keep out potential contaminants such as dust and insects. This drastically reduces the risk of pesky and disruptive false alarms. The heat sensor includes a new thermistor which gives a quicker alarm response when the monitoring temperature rises, and will trigger at the dangerous temperature of 58 degrees.  The Ei3024 can be easily fitted with an Ei3000MRF module that enables wireless interconnection and data extraction, which brings us to two of the huge selling points of the Ei3024 and the 3000 Series: SmartLINK and AudioLINK. How SmartLINK is integral to Aico 3000 Series 'Full Circle Protection' ethos The SmartLINK is an extension of Aico's brilliant RadioLINK+ functionality, adding a whole new range of functions and features for your convenience in the IoT era. Once you have plugged in the Ei3000MRF module, you will receive all the benefits afforded to you by RadioLINK technology: no need for cable runs and alarms interconnected via Radio Frequency (RF). SmartLINK also offers ‘Remote House Coding’, making House Coding new alarms into the system even easier. House Coding simply ensures that when one alarm in the system is triggered, the rest are too, and a guide on how to set up a House Coding system can be found here.  With Remote House Coding, you can easily expand the reach of your home alarm system, and save time on install as you can enter a unique code for each individual alarm directly onto the alarm itself. Other useful features for the SmartLINK include real-time configurable notifications, forecast alarm replacements, and maintenance and remote alarm learn entry (which allows the installer to reactivate the entire RF system House Code from a single device). How AudioLINK rounds off the 'Full Circle Protection' of the 3000 Series AudioLINK data extraction ensures that you can use data for unit reports, then sends an Alarms Status report delivered directly to your smart phone or tablet via a free app.  This useful Report includes alarms activations, sensor statuses, records of usage, battery and backup cell status, CO levels recorded, background levels of CO and advice on dust contamination levels. The Alarm Status Report provides evidence required for the maintenance of records that is required for private Landlords renting out properties within the UK. Data can be extracted from the AudioLINK alarm repeatedly, and information is stored for life, enabling re-checking of historic records; with report storage and sharing, all of your information can be emailed directly from your device to single or multiple addresses.  For Landlords, UPRN numbers, landlord details and contractor details can be added to the report.  It can also be sent as a PDF report or a .csv file for integration with housing management and maintenance systems; ideal for a Landlord with multiple properties to check in on.Extraction of data can be done in 3 easy steps: press the alarm 3 times, allowing the alarm to emit a number of beeps which your phone will pick up, then the AudioLINK App will generate and display the Alarm Status Report.
