Act in time if a fire occurs thanks to the Smartwares RM174RF Smoke detector. The smoke alarm is connectable which means all connected smoke detectors alert at the same time when only one detects smoke.
A smoke alarm saves lives
A fire can occur anytime, even when you are asleep. The toxic gas can make you lose consciousness and prevents you from waking up. 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 years to be sure you have properly working smoke detectors at all times.
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 battery of the RM174RF Smoke detector has a 1 year lifetime and the sensor has a maximum lifetime of 10 years. The empty battery indicator alerts you with a sound alert if your battery needs to be replaced. The smoke alarm is equipped with a hush mode that can be used to mute the alarm if it sounds a false alarm.
Connectable smoke alarm
The RM174RF Smoke alarm can be connected wirelessly with similar smoke alarms. This way all smoke detectors will alert at the same time, so you get warned wherever you are. One smoke detector will function as the main smoke detector, the other smoke alarms can be used up to 20 metres from the main smoke detector and up to 12 additional detectors can be connected.
To be sure you will get warned if a fire breaks out it is recommended to place at least one smoke alarm on every floor. We recommend to placing smoke alarms in the aress you pass when exiting, for example in your hallway or stairwell. Smoke rises and therefore it is important to always mount your smoke alarm on the ceiling, this can be done easily by using screws or a mounting plate. The Smartwares smoke alarms are wireless which allows you to place them anyywhere in the home. Thanks to the security pin you can only mount the alarm when the battery is inserted.
The functionality 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 bi-annually 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 basis with the testing button. The smoke alarm should be tested monthly in order to be assured that it is well-functioning if a fire occurs. You will hear a short beep if the battery is running low, this way you are alerted when you need to replace the battery.
