Act in time when a fire occurs thanks to the Smartwares RM175RF Smoke detector. The smoke alarm is connectable which means all connected smoke detectors go off at the same time when only one detects smoke. You can test the smoke detector with the test button or use a Smartwares FOT-14300 Remote Control for easy testing.
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 after activation due to dust accumulation, 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 battery of the RM175RF Smoke detector has a 1 year lifetime and the sensor has a maximal lifetime of 10 years. The empty battery indicator alerts you with a sound signal 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 RM175RF Smoke alarm can be connected wireless with similar smoke alarms or with the RM174RF. This way all smoke detectors will go off 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 meters from the main smoke detector and no less than 12 detectors can be connected.
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. 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 Smartwares smoke alarms are wireless which allows you to place them everywhere at home. Thanks to the security pin you can only mount the alarm when the battery is inserted.
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 it is 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 battery.
