Aico specialise in residential
Fire & CO protection
– it’s all we do and have done for the past 25 years.
We have more mains powered alarms fitted in homes across the
UK than any other manufacturer and are the only Smoke, Heat
and CO Alarm manufacturer to test every single alarm multiple
times during the manufacturing process.
By fitting Aico alarms you can be confident you’re getting the
best protection.

Building on our original 150 Series alarms, the 160 Series was successfully
launched in 1999 and has given proven performance in millions of
installations. It has constantly evolved to provide more functionality, such
as RadioLINK wireless interconnection and Remote Control.
It’s time for the 160 Series to make its
next evolutionary progression.

Modern Design
Totally redesigned to be more compact and incorporate
new technology, providing an increase in performance,
the 160e Series is up to 18% slimmer compared to the
160RC Series alarms.
This new slimline modern design allows the
alarms to be less obtrusive into the room,
whilst maintaining the same easi-fit footprint,
meaning it’s simple to upgrade from the 160RC
Series alarms with no re-decorating costs.

Easier Installation
Our easi-fit base has been proven to give
quick, reliable installation. With the 160e
Series, we’ve made it even better.
More screw holes have been
added to the base to save
on installation times when
upgrading or replacing existing
systems. The holes line up with
previous easi-fit and RadioLINK
alarm bases, so no need to drill
extra holes.
We’ve imprinted ‘O’ for Optical and ‘I’ for
Ionisation on the test buttons, and added colour
coding to the back of every alarm type, so it’s
easier to check the alarm type and fit in the
correct room/area when installing.

Improved Performance
The Ei166e, Optical alarm, has a new sensor chamber to give
better resistance to false alarms.
Developed from the proven
optical chamber in our
flagship Multi-Sensor alarm,
the sensor is now cylindrical
in shape and features a
bonded protective mesh
that encapsulates the whole
sensor to keep out potential
contaminants such as dust
and insects whilst still
allowing the free flow
of smoke.

lithium cells
All 160e Series alarms
feature our proven Panasonic
rechargeable lithium cells,
which provide tamperproof and maintenance free
rechargeable lithium back-up
for the whole 10 year life of
the alarm - offering the best
value for money.
Since introducing Panasonic
rechargeable cells in our 160
Series alarms in 1999, we’ve
never had a single failure.

RadioLINK
Our award winning
technology has also evolved into
RadioLINK

House Coding
Remote House Coding
To enable each RadioLINK and RadioLINK+
alarm to interconnect wirelessly as a system
they must be House Coded together. When
each alarm is in House Code mode it will learn
the unique serial numbers of the other alarms
in House Code mode at that time to establish a
secure connection.
RadioLINK+ has made it easier to expand
existing systems. Previously, if you wanted to
add another RadioLINK alarm or accessories
into an existing RadioLINK system, each alarm
would have to be manually put into House
Code mode. With RadioLINK+ only one alarm in
the existing system needs putting into Remote
House Code mode along with the new alarm/
accessory that needs adding.
With the introduction of the RadioLINK+
module, the House Coding slot has now
been moved onto the actual alarm making
it easy to access and use. All the alarms
can be House Coded in situ when installed.
This is significant as it allows the installer to
check the Radio Frequency signal (used for
wireless interconnection) strength at the exact
location the alarms will be when protecting the
occupants and dwelling.
As well as enabling wireless interconnection,
RadioLINK’s capabilities have grown making it
simpler to control, test and asset manage alarm
systems even when access to the property is
not possible.
The RadioLINK+ Module
The 160e Series can now interconnect wirelessly with other
RadioLINK and RadioLINK+ alarms and accessories via a plug-in
module. The Ei100MRF just slots into the alarm and is automatically
activated ready to be House Coded in with the rest of the system.
Compared to the previous 160RC Series it saves on installation time
and associated costs. RadioLINK+ is only available in the 160e Series
and the Ei2110e Multi-Sensor alarm.

Monitoring
Data Set Up
RadioLINK+ has an enhanced self-monitoring function that
recognises system tampering or alarm head removal.
At installation details of the system can be collected, such as number of units, types
of alarms, location of alarms, Radio Frequency signal strength between alarms,
serial numbers of the devices and how long the alarms have been in operation.
Each alarm in the system will search for the alarm with the strongest Radio Frequency signal to it and
pair up with it. At regular intervals, these two alarms will communicate with each other. If someone
has removed Alarm 1 from its base, Alarm 2 will not get a response and log it into its memory and
change its indicator light. It will also send an ‘Alarm Removed’ signal that can be used to trigger a
warning to a third party device, e.g. a warden call or panel system, if connected to a module such as
the Ei414 Fire/CO Alarm Interface. Even if Alarm 1 is replaced, there will still be a log of this event.

Future Proofing
Once the system has been set up, information
can be accessed securely from within or
outside a property if access is an issue.
Event logs can be retrieved as many times as
necessary and for each alarm on the system,
retrieving data such as how many direct button
tests have been performed and when, any
issues with the battery and/or mains supply,
Carbon Monoxide (CO) levels detected if a CO
alarm is in the system, Radio Frequency signal
strength between alarms, age of alarms and
any alarms removed.
The 160e Series alarms are fully compatible with all other Aico alarms and accessories whether a
system needs upgrading or an existing system needs expanding; and works with either hard-wired,
RadioLINK or hybrid interconnecting systems.
Expanding an existing hard-wired interconnect alarm system to RadioLINK+ is simple. By replacing
just one alarm in the hard-wired system to a RadioLINK+ alarm, you can add other RadioLINK alarms
and accessories, making it ever more flexible.
