Aico Exhibits RadioLINK Northern Ireland’s Electrical Trade Show

Aico’s unique RadioLINK Professional wireless interconnect mains powered smoke alarm system will take centre stage at the exhibition.

Interconnecting smoke alarms in a domestic property is a requirement of BS 5839: Pt.6: 2004 and Building Regulations; it provides an earlier warning for residents and the best chance of escape.  However, hard wired interconnection is time consuming, disruptive and costly.  RadioLINK, on the other hand, works by allowing mains powered smoke, heat and multi sensor alarms to be wirelessly interconnected.  If one alarm on the system is triggered, radio frequency signals are used to cause every other alarm in the property to sound.

Aico broke new ground when it launched RadioLINK in 2004 as the very first wireless alarm interconnect system in the domestic field.  Today, RadioLINK is the market leader, successfully operating in thousands of private properties and social housing throughout the UK.

RadioLINK provides highly effective fire detection with a number of unique features, including its ease of installation and set up and its ability to wirelessly interconnect to other devices for maximum effectiveness and flexibility.  This latter aspect is particularly advantageous as it allows wire free interconnection to Aico Carbon Monoxide alarms and alarms for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, as well as third party equipment such as sprinkler systems and Warden Call Systems.  To facilitate this, Aico provides a variety of control options, including a wall mounted switch which allows the user to Test, Silence and Locate alarms without having to reach up to them, Manual Call Points for use in larger installations and relays to signal to other devices.

All Aico products, including RadioLINK Professional, are supported by Aico’s expert sales and technical team.  Highly experienced technical staff are readily available to provide support and advice on all matters relating to selection, installation and maintenance of Aico products.  A comprehensive range of information is also available through the web site and in Aico’s Electrical Contractors Handybook which covers all you need to know about choosing, installing, testing and maintaining Aico alarms.  In addition to this, Application Expert features tried and tested solutions to difficult fire alarm applications.  Aico also runs the Aico Fire Products Trained Installer Scheme, combining a mixture of training and technical information, as part of a commitment to raising the standards of domestic fire alarm system installation.
