First Choice provides bespoke housing for vulnerable adults, many of whom have physical or learning disabilities.

Having been one of the first in Wales to install CO alarms in its properties, the housing association was recently invited to Ei Electronics’ manufacturing facility to see the development of Ei’s new AudioLINK CO alarm technology.

AudioLINK technology

First Choice opted for Aico’s Ei208 CO alarm with in-built AudioLINK data extraction technology. AudioLINK allows for real time data to be extracted via the alarm’s sounder to a tablet or smartphone.

The data is converted into an Alarm Status report, displaying information about the alarm and detection levels of CO which can be emailed or stored for future reference.

Up to four Aico AudioLINK CO alarms will be installed throughout all of First Choice properties as a standard specification.

CO detectors

The Aico CO alarms were specified based on a number of key features, including their ease of installation, ability to interconnect with other alarms, ten year lifespan and AudioLINK technology.

First Choice Housing Association Maintenance Manager, Andrew Mouncher, comments:

“I have worked in the RSL sector for many years and within this time I have experienced CO detectors activating on several occasions. 

“If I had then the information that I can download for this new generation of CO detectors I am sure all involved would have been better equipped to provide a more targeted response. Coupled with these safeguards is the ability to accurately monitor testing and any unauthorised tampering.”
