The Emerald Planet (EP-HW-240-R1) Photoelectric Smoke Alarm is powered by 240V mains power and supported by a 9V battery back-up.
This alarm can be stand-alone or can be connected (hardwired) with up to 12 alarms on one circuit. This allows all smoke alarms on the circuit to activate simultaneously.
The alarm is fitted with a test/hush/silence button to facilitate testing of the alarm. The silence function allows the alarm/system to be silenced in the case of a false alarm. Silencing one alarm will silence all connected alarms.
Designed to meet the rigorous new Australian smoke alarm standards (AS3786: 2014).
