AudioLINK, the data extraction technology integrated into its Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms and the new Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm – Ei2110e – from Aico has won a host of prestigious industry awards and accolades in its first year.
To date, AudioLINK has won: Electrical App of the Year at the Electrical Industry Awards; Best New Product at the SELECT awards (the trade body for the electrotechnical industry in Scotland); Innovative Product of the Year at the Northern Ireland Electrical Awards; and Gas Industry Innovation at AGSM Supplier Excellence Awards. What’s more, AudioLINK has been selected by readers of the market leading publication Professional Electrician as one of their top 25 products of the year.
AudioLINK is an alarm technology that allows for invaluable real time data to be extracted via the Alarm’s sounder – all you need is an AudioLINK enabled Aico Alarm, a tablet or smartphone and the free AudioLINK App which converts the data into an Alarm Status Report. The AudioLINK App is available on Android, iOS (iPhones and iPads) and now Windows devices.
The AudioLINK Alarm Status Report, which is simple to review and store, is created for the life of the Alarm and is colour coded to identify the urgency of any issue. The Report displays useful information about the Alarm, such as battery life, alarm sensor status, number of times tested and removed; and, in the case of CO Alarms, detection levels of CO, including background CO, with details of when it occurred – all in a simple format. As the information is generated in real time, should there be an issue it can be dealt with there and then.
The Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm, the Ei2110e, contains two sensor types, optical and heat, to constantly monitor smoke and heat levels, sending and receiving information via its intelligent detection software. It is this sensor information that alters the alarm’s sensitivity and trigger points, automatically providing the best response to all fire types and reduces potential false alarms. The Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm, the Ei2110e, can be sited anywhere in a home that requires a smoke alarm – making it easier to specify.
Neal Hooper, Director, Aico states “We are delighted to receive this level of recognition from the industry and our customers. AudioLINK has already proven an invaluable tool to our customers, detecting CO leaks from appliances such as cookers and boilers. Contractors have used AudioLINK to extract data from Aico CO alarms immediately, using the Alarm Status Report as a visual guide to prove CO is present and take immediate action to avoid harm to the tenant. AudioLINK is now being installed in the new Multi-Sensor, the Ei2110e, so real time data can now be extracted from smoke alarms, a real bonus for our customers.”
