Coast and Country Housing Choose AICO's Multi-Sensor Alarms For Their Enhanced Features

AudioLINK Ei2110e Data ExtrAico’s premium Ei2110e Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm is being specified for all 10,000 Coast and Country Housing properties to provide the best fire response for tenants.

Established in 2001, Coast and Country Housing is the largest registered housing provider in Redcar and Cleveland, with estates located in a diverse range of urban areas, seaside resorts and rural villages.  

Coast and Country Housing is a committed Aico alarm installer, with nearly all 10,000 properties benefitting from quality Aico Smoke Alarms.  In order to provide the very best level of protection for tenants, Coast and Country Housing has upgraded its specification to the sole use of Aico’s Multi-Sensor Fire Alarms.

For Mark Dale, Electrical Services Manager at Coast and Country Housing, the feature rich alarms were the natural choice: “The new Multi-Sensor comes with a range of enhanced features.  AudioLINK data extraction technology is of particular interest.  We will be looking at the best ways of using AudioLINK for our requirements, but already I can see it being useful as an aid to creating a more accurate response to a fault; it will provide us with an indication as to why that device might be sounding.”

Aico’s mains powered Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm Ei2110e contains two sensor types, optical and heat, to constantly monitor smoke and heat levels through its intelligent detection software.  This sensor information alters the alarm’s sensitivity and trigger points, automatically providing the best response to all fire types and reduces potential false alarms.  

Award winning AudioLINK data extraction technology is incorporated into the Ei2110e, which enables real time data to be extracted from each alarm using a smartphone or tablet and a free App to create an Alarm Status Report.  The Report displays useful information about the alarm, such as battery life, alarm sensors status, number of times tested and removed and any alarm activation, with details of when it occurred - all in a simple format.  

In addition, the Ei2110e also comes with RadioLINK+ wireless interconnection technology which provides whole systems data extraction and monitoring. Information on the number of devices in a property, their serial numbers, types of alarms, location of alarms can all be easily accessed and in some cases remotely.  For larger systems (often in HMOs), this enables a history of alarm systems in individual dwellings to be created.  

Coast and Country Housing will be installing two Ei2110e Alarms per property, located in the circulation areas upstairs and downstairs, interlinked together for maximum audibility, in line with best practice and British Standards.  The alarms will be fitted as part of a replacement programme as and when existing alarms come to the end of their lives.  To ensure that all the installations run smoothly, Coast and Country Housing engineers have taken part in Aico’s free Expert Installer scheme.  “We found it very useful” claims Mark “and very good at identifying issues as well as best practice”.
