Act in time when a fire occurs thanks to the Smartwares FSM-17400 230V Smoke detector. The smoke alarm can be connected to a fixed voltage and is equipped with an Alkaline backup battery with a battery lifetime of 1 year.
A smoke alarm saves lives
A fire can occur anytime, even when you are asleep. The toxic gas can make you lose your consciousness and prevents you from waking up. Therefore, it is important to wake up in time when fire breaks out. A smoke alarm warns you in time so you can respond quickly to life-threatening situations. It is important to know that smoke detectors have a maximum lifetime of 10 years, therefore you should always check the date on your smoke detector and buy new ones every 10 year to be sure you have properly working smoke detectors.
Choose the right smoke alarm
All Smartwares smoke alarms are equipped with an optical sensor. An optical sensor reacts fast to smoldering fires, has less false alarms and is environmentally friendly. The FSM-174 Smoke Alarm must be connected to your current wiring, so you dot have to worry about replacing the batteries. The smoke alarm is equipped with a sleep and hush mode. The sleep mode can be used for disabling the smoke alarm temporarily, this can be useful if current wiring isn’t intact anymore and the empty battery indicator starts to go off in the middle of the night. Furthermore, the hush button can be used to mute the alarm if it sounds a false alarm.
To be sure you will get warned when a fire breaks out it is recommended to place at least one smoke alarm at every floor. Because the Smoke Alarm is installed via the current wiring, you can connect up to 12 smoke alarms. We recommend to place smoke alarms in the spaces you pass when fleeing, for example in your hallway or stairs. Smoke rises and therefore it is important to always mount your smoke alarm at the ceiling, this can be done easily by using some screws or a mounting plate.
The functioning of the smoke alarm can be influenced by dust and filth, it is therefore important to clean your smoke alarm monthly by using a slightly damp cloth and biannual with a vacuum cleaner. You should never use cleaning products or paint the smoke alarm.
Test your alarms
It is important to check your smoke alarm on a regular base with the testing button. The smoke alarm should be tested monthly in order to be assured that they are well-functioning when a fire occurs. You will hear a short beep if the battery is running low, this way you get alerted when you need to replace the smoke alarm.
