A strobe light and vibrating pad designed for use with a domestic smoke alarm by a user who is deaf or has a hearing impairment. This Vibralarm model communicates wirelessly with the Brooks Radiolink range of smoke alarms and accessories. The system is designed to be wall or surface mounted.
Only one model available.
Suitable for use with the following Smoke Alarms:
* EIB146 Brooks 230V Mains Powered Photoelectric with Hush, with EIB168RF Brooks RadioLINK base
* EIB605TYCRF Brooks 10 Year Lithium Cell Battery Powered Photoelectric Smoke Alarm with RadioLINK Interconnectivity
When the smoke alarm is set off, the strobe light will flash several times and the plug-in vibrating pad, which is designed to sit under the pillow, will begin to vibrate.
The Vibralarm is mains powered, but features a lead-acid rechargeable battery that provides back-up power in the event of a mains failure.
The Vibralarm features the following lights on the front of the system;
* A green light indicates that mains power is connected, when mains power is absent, it will flash every four seconds.
* If mains power fails, a red light will flash once every second to indicate it is running on the battery back-up.
* An amber light will be present if there is a fault in the control unit.
The system also features a test button on the front of the unit, that allows the strobe light, vibration pad and smoke alarm to be tested.
* The Vibralarm is designed for use with Brooks smoke alarms, including options of a mains powered photoelectric alarm or a 10 year lithium cell, battery powered photoelectric alarm.
* The smoke alarms require RadioLINK interconnectivity to allow the Vibralarm to link wirelessly to the alarm. This is achieved through use of a RF RadioLINK Module installed into the 10 year lithium cell, battery-powered photoelectric alarm, or through use of a RadioLINK base for use with the mains powered alarm.
