Looking at wireless heat and smoke detectors that can be interlinked.
Fire Angel do a range of these. Just want to know, are these ok seeing as they're wireless?
Do heat/smokes have to be hard wired? Or will these wireless ones that can be linked be ok?
Have a bit of an awkward run at a job and was debating whether it was easier to wire all the interlinked smokes to a Wago box or JB. They are Aiko smoke alarms and wanted to know whether anyone has done this before and would it make any difference?
I don't normally get involved in this but have been asked by customer to fit smoke alarms - this is for a property that will be rented out. I know that mains powered smokes used to be the way to go in this situation as tenants tended to take out the PP3 batteries to use in other equipment...
In a position where only possibility is to install smokes supplied from local Pendant. The smokes are radio linked, however I want to double check Regards isolation point.
I don't plan on installing one due to possibility of somebody turning off. However wouldn't a permanently wired appliance...
I've just been asked to install some mains powered smoke alarms to a customers property, can I still add these to an existing lighting circuit (if the alarms have a battery back up) or do I need a dedicated RCD Controlled circuit from the CU?
I've been asked to rewire a big period house and the owner has stipulated absolutely no smoke alarms!
I have argued the case for them and was unsure if these are a legal requirement or could these be left out of the installation on his say so.
Can anyone shed some light ?
I will be installing several smoke - heat and carbon monoxide detectors shortly as per spec. I've not done carbon monoxide detectors before. I take it, electrically wiring them is the same as smoke and heat detectors. They will be wired and interconnected on one circuit and protected by a RCBO...
JUST A QUICK BIT OF ADVICE REQUIRED.
HAVE RECENTLY BEEN TO PRICE A DB CHANGE OF THE DUAL SPLIT LOAD VARIETY.and noticed the instal has a dedicated smoke detection circuit .Now i have also noticed that this circuit is buried in plaster (through a safe zone) and in fact all circuits...
does anyone know where you can a sounder that you can wire into domestic smokes. reason being rewiring a flat above a shop that has interlink smokes but building control want a sounder fitting in hallway of flat so if shop smokes go off then tenants of flat will know. Looked on aico...
Hello fellow sparks, how are we ?
I am slightly embarrassed about asking this but here goes,
I have never realy understood why you need a 3rd core when wiring smokes, live, neutal and earth i get, but why do you need a switch wire exactly,
what is its job ?
Hi there, Iam new to this so please bare with me.
Iam just about to start a full rewire. The property is a 6 bed, three storey house, which the owner is turning into shared living. 6 bedrooms with a communal lounge, bathroom and kitchen. Iam not sure if I need to fit smoke detectors in each...
Ended up at yet another partly done electrical job trying to figure out whats been done and what hasn't. I noticed the spark has not included a new circuit for smoke alarms as its a refurb + extension on a flat and thought ideally one should have been installed. Can I just take a local...
Lady I'm dealing with today and tomorrow has asked me about mains smokes. She wants one in EVERY room in the house, and on the landings and even in the cellar. She's a tad paranoid about fire I think. She also wants the smoke alarms to detect carbon monoxide. I've seen battery combo...
I went to price a job up today and noticed the lady had physically disconnected her 2 interlinked smoke alarms, due to them always going off.
Obviously, I was concerned to see this and pointed out that not only is this dangerous, but that her insurance is probably invalid. She is a heavy...
Just been going through some plans for a loft conversion. Standard sort of size 3 bed property (4 with loft conversion)
And they've specified x 9 smokes throughout - everywhere apart from kitchen ! and 2 x bathrooms.
Not sure what to make of that really, bit excessive maybe ? Not...
