Low energy consumption is high on the agenda for the new Firex® range of smoke and heat alarms from Kidde, alongside a host of other advanced features ideally suited to all types of housing. The latest range is fully compatible with all previous Firex® alarms and highlights several new advanced features. A particularly important benefit is the substantially lower, maximum mains energy consumption of less than 15mA – in the order of just 3.5W and less than many household items left on standby. This represents a 70 per cent energy saving over previous models, ensuring significantly lower running costs and improving a building’s sustainability credentials. Other new features include an Alarm Memory Function where a flashing LED continues after an alarm has been triggered to easily and quickly identify the source unit. All the models retain popular Firex® features including a combined Test/Hush button, Auto-reset facility and a tamper-resistant locking device. Up to 23 Firex® alarms can be interlinked creating a network for protection throughout the home. Firex® can also form part of Kidde’s ‘Smart Interconnect’ feature which creates a comprehensive system for whole home protection, interlinking the company’s hard-wired smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms.
