FireAngel Smart RF provides flexible wireless solutions for both hard-wired and battery systems. Up to 50 smoke, heat or carbon monoxide alarms can be interlinked in a network for maximum coverage.
There are 3 main ways to interlink FireAngel Specification smoke alarms:
FireAngel Smart RF enabled alarms are connected via Intelligent Radio Frequency (RF) technology. Smart RF simplifies installation as alarms can be linked together in a matter of seconds via a two button press “learning in” process.
It is important to note, that unique identity codes (16 million different combinations) are hard coded into the memory of the fire alarm network upon interlinking so these will be retained even if the mains is turned off.
Tailored to suit the needs of the property and tenant:
FireAngel Smart RF smoke alarms (including the FireAngel Specification range) use Multi-Sensor technology used by over 90% of the Fire and Rescue Service. To find out more about our technologies and products available, please see the FireAngel product guide.
FireAngel has mixed system capability, allowing for the interlinking of battery and mains alarms.
Just one mains powered Smart RF enabled alarm is required to adapt an established hardwired interconnected system to communicate to other FireAngel wireless products. It also allows you to connect separate hardwire, interconnected networks, into one network by adding just one Smart RF enabled alarm to each section.
As Smart RF interlinks alarms via radio-frequency, you do not need to feed the wiring from one alarm to another. This can be a very time consuming process, and can cause problems with tenants not wanting trunking running up walls and across ceilings. There is no need to lift floorboards either. As a result, your damage claims to floors, carpets and decoration are minimised – if not eliminated.
As wireless alarms are more expensive, it is easier to justify the additional cost when retro-fitting smoke alarms as this is where surface trunking is often used.
In new build properties, cable can be relatively cheap and easy to install (without the need for trunking) so the extra cost may not be a viable proposition to you. However, some new build properties have concrete ceilings, meaning that surface wiring via trunking will still be necessary. In these applications the use of RF will likely to be highly beneficial.
Existing hardwire interconnect between all alarms in the dwelling.
To connect Smart RF enabled devices onto an established, hardwire network:
Place one mains powered Smart RF enabled smoke or heat alarm on the existing hard-wired network. This will link all other Smart RF alarms or accessories to communicate to hardwire interconnected alarms.
Separate hardwire interconnected networks in the dwelling.
To wirelessly link separately hardwire interconnected networks, such as upstairs and downstairs:
Place one mains powered Smart RF enabled alarm on each hardwire interconnected network, to wirelessly link the networks together.
YOU SHOULD NEVER:
• Exceed 250m of connecting wire per circuit.
• Connect FireAngel alarms to any other models produced by another manufacturer.
