Energy Saving Gadget: Ei100L smoke alarm with escape light
This week's gadget is one of the more important items we've featured, mainly because it could be a lifesaver one day.
This week, we’re taking a look at the Ei100L smoke alarm with escape light, which could very well prove to be the best thing you’ll ever buy. The Ei100L is here to shed some light on a burning question – what’s so great about this fire alarm? Well, sit down because you may get a bit excited about it... or maybe not, but it's worth reading anyway.
Okay, so it’s hard to get excited about a smoke alarm - unless it’s shaped like something hilarious. But the Ei100L has a some cool features that will make sure you and/or your family have the best possible chance of escape in a fire situation.
The Ei100L is an Ionisation Smoke Alarm that runs on a 9V battery, which is supplied with the alarm – handy out.
So what in the name of God is an ionisation smoke alarm? Well, they operate on the principle that electrical current flowing between electrodes in an ionisation chamber is reduced when smoke particles enter. Basically, smoke particles interrupt the current and set off the alarm.
The one feature that easily makes the Ei100L stand out from the competition, is the fact that this smoke alarm comes equipped with a high intensity escape light beam, which is powered by an alkaline battery. This comes in particularly useful for locations such as stairs and exits routes where the light beam will illuminate the escape path.
So you won’t have to worry about being engulfed in so much smoke that your surrounds become completely blacked out. The Ei100L escape light should lead you to safety – or around danger at least.
The Ei100L smoke detector will automatically reset itself and silence the sounder when smoke particles are no longer present in the sensing chamber, so you can tell the wife to relax with the tea-towel.
If you want to make sure your house, your family and most importantly, you yourself are protected from the dangers of a house fire then you’d want to invest in the Ei100L smoke alarm with escape light. It comes with a 5 Year Manufacturers Warranty and it’s also kite-marked, so at least you know it will last. And as for the cherry on top? It won't break the bank.
