There are two ways to tell your alarms apart.


The loud, quick way:

Press the test button on each alarm, which will highlight that alarm in your app. This will, however, sound the alarms.


The quiet, slower way:

Take the units off base one at a time, which will generate an off base notification. This can take about a minute to get through, but does not make noise.


You can then select the device and rename in the settings.

Once you have registered for the FireAngel Connected App and set up your gateway you can hit the “Add Devices” button and follow the instructions on screen.


Yes, the alarms will still function and interconnect without the FireAngel Pro Connected Gateway.

If you do not add the gateway, though, you will not be able to use the FireAngel Connected app.

If your Current alarms do not comply with the new Fire & CO Safety Standards then you will need to install units which fall in line with the new standards.

The current date that the new Fire & CO Safety Standards go live is February 2022 although this may change.

Under the new guidelines, all homes in Scotland (including both private and socially rented housing) must have an interlinked Fire and Smoke alarm system, supported by adequate carbon monoxide (CO) protection where a flue‑burning appliance or flue is present, by February 2022.

The new standard requires:

  • One smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently used for general living purposes, such as the living room
  • One smoke alarm installed in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings
  • One heat alarm installed in every kitchen
  • One sealed battery carbon monoxide alarm installed where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance, such as a boiler, fire or stove

All of the above alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked
