What makes this alarm different?
This smoke alarm is a photoelectric smoke alarm which utilises a sensing technology that 'sees' smoke giving a greater detection of slow smouldering fires. Smouldering fires create more smoke increasing the chance of suffocation. With the microprocessor controlled detection, this alarm gives you more time to react and stay safe.

Can I link this alarm to others?
This alarm is interlinkable to up to 12 alarms. This gives you the added benefit of being able to spread the alarms throughout the property and as soon as one is activated, the others activate to notify you in the event of a fire.

How long does the battery last?
The battery in this alarm is a sealed lithium battery that has approximately a ten year life span. This gives you the benefit of having a long lasting smoke alarm without the worry of having to change batteries. The alarm also comes with a low battery warning meaning that even when it's working life comes to an end, you will still know when the time has come to replace the unit.

Does this smoke alarm emit a noise which is variable in tone ? I am hearing impaired and can not hear high pitched sounds - however ''loud'' they may be - and I must have an audible warning in a lower frequency range which I can hear. Any advice ap
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm afraid that the siren is a single high pitched tone and isn't variable.
