When alarms are interlinked they are able to communicate and will alert at the same time if one of the alarms detects danger. In the case of wireless interlink, this communication is in the form of protected radio frequency, which means there’s no need to run cables between the alarms. The FireAngel Pro Connected alarms allow the network to be extended to include devices across your entire home. For example, a network of 7 x smoke alarms, 3 x heat alarms, 3 x carbon monoxide alarms and a Gateway will be completely secure and protect your whole home, and are backwards compatible with the FireAngel Wi-Safe2 range.
You can also add a Gateway into the network which will allow you to receive updates on the network when you’re away from the home. The Gateway will communicate with the FireAngel Connected App using your home’s internet connection, but if this fails or cuts out the alarms will still protect your home, but you won’t receive a push notification.
A Heat Alarm is perfect for detecting fires like those caused by faulty white goods, as they usually create a ‘blast’ of fire that’s very hot. Heat Alarms won’t false alarm to a dusty or humid room which makes it perfect for kitchens, utility rooms and garages where these items are usually found.
The Pro Connected FP1720W2-R does not require an internet connection to alert you to fire. However if you have a Smart Gateway included in the network (which requires internet connection), and the internet connection is lost, the alarms will still perform flawlessly and will detect danger and alarm in the home, but you won’t receive a push notification to your devices.
