The Aico Ei3014 is a mains-powered linkable heat alarm with a 10-year rechargeable lithium battery back-up, which can power the alarm if there's a power cut. It’s designed to be fitted in a kitchen or a garage, places where traditional smoke alarms could be fooled by smoke from cooking or fumes from vehicles. It’s a linkable model that can be paired with the following Aico smoke alarms: Ei3014, Ei3016, Ei3021, Ei3028, Ei2110e, Ei161e, Ei164e, Ei166e, Ei141, Ei144 and Ei146. This makes it suitable for homes in Scotland when the heat and smoke alarms law changes in 2022. With this model you can also plug in the optional Ei3000MRF module for a wireless connection. This allows you to get real-time alerts or data reports using an app on your smartphone or tablet. It comes with a five-year warranty.
