Increase Your Efficiency and Productivity with RF Technology

BRK introduce the RF interlink base for use with mains powered smoke and heat alarms in the range. Quick to install and quick to link; installers can save time and money on projects and increase overall productivity.

The RF base is a simple system that provides a wireless interlink between mains powered smoke and heat alarms and will transmit a Radio Frequency (RF) signal, when the alarmattached to it senses smoke or fire. When anotherRF base receives this signal the attached smoke or heat alarm on that will also sound, eliminating the needfor connection wires between each alarm.

Incorporating the unique "Push-Fit" docking system, the base units are specifically designed to ensure quick and easy installation of base unit to mains feed and for quick and easy connection of alarm to base unit.

Up to 50 alarms in a single building can be linked together in this way, minimising disruption tohomeowners or property occupiers during installation and also time spent on each job for the installer.

This is a particularly useful system when a building has undergone a refurbishment or extension.  With thenecessity for long interconnecting wires eliminated, there is no need for installers to lift floor boards and carpets and channel out walls to ensure the building is fire safe.  RF bases can be fitted without the need for any re-decoration afterwards, which for tenants and homeowners is a real benefit.

John Walsh, Director of Business Development for BRK commented: "We have designed the DS700RF base units with the installer in mind.  There is a very simple, three step set-up process for the alarms to work and interconnect to protect a property, unlike installing wired systems which can be costly and lengthy.  In today's economic climate it's vital that installers can be as productive and efficient as possible on each job, to enable them to free up more time and in effect drive more business back to themselves. RF technology really is an installer's dream."

The RF base features a unique identification coding system that prevents a group of properties from interacting with each other and causing nuisance alarms.  The units themselves also incorporate the very latest in lithium battery technology, with built-in tamper proof cells to provide a 10 year life - even ensuring continuous protection in the event of a power failure.
