SID is fitted inside the ‘Aico Extended Base’ that connects to one of two Lithium Battery Powered Aico Smoke Alarms ( E1B650i series). These Aico smoke alarms feature a high performance photoelectric chamber, 10 year lithium battery, large test / hush button, and optional wireless interconnections to sound other smoke alarms within the premises.
When the smoke alarm detects smoke, SID will activate the base unit, which pre-alarms and sends a fire alert to the Alarm Receiving Centre.
Battery powered smoke alarms can be installed by a technician, and should be tested thoroughly at the time of installation and have a regular testing plan in place.
SID fitted inside the deep base that connects to the Aico Battery Powered Smoke Alarm:
Battery: SID has a non-rechargeable, service replaceable battery. SID battery life calculations, with typical use (1 activation every 30 days) indicates a battery life of 9-10 years.
SID reports when its battery is at 20% capacity and will need to be replaced. It does not monitor the smoke alarm battery it is connected to; hence regular testing of the connected device is suggested to ensure its functionality.
Testing: SID communicates with the base unit every seven hours, and a failed to test report will be sent to the Alarm Receiving Centre if the base unit has not received multiple signals over a few days (typically set between 3-5 days).
