Introducing Sensor Smart Smoke Alarms

The Sensor 217E series of independent or interconnected photoelectric smoke alarms, in conjunction with the Sensor Hub, provide an intuitive return pathway to facilitate monitoring, event logging, and remote testing via an IoT (Internet of Things) connection housed within the Sensor Hub.

Due to the advanced battery technology and low power consumption, each of the 217E series alarms can be used to satisfy either the 230 V or 10-year lithium requirement – depending on the applicable installation legislation or other local or state requirements.
Each alarm connects to the Sensor Hub independently of each other with a range of up to 200m line of sight.

Both the 217E-02 and the 217E-03 utilise a sealed lithium battery for both the operation of the alarm and the RF interconnect to the Sensor Hub, ensuring no battery replacements are required over the life of the alarm.

Remote smoke alarm testing for convenience and minimal occupier disruption

  • No need for onsite testing of Sensor smoke alarms
  • Occupiers can schedule smoke alarm testing via a weblink at their preferred time
  • Elimination of house keys and inspection bookings – testing is remote
  • Automatic monitoring of alarm cleanliness and operational status
  • Tenant education on smoke alarm care is automated
  • Regular communication between Sensor Smoke Alarms and the Sensor Hub – every 5 minutes

What is the constant green light on the alarm?
This means you're Sensor Smart Smoke Alarm is connected to mains power. But don't worry, if your power goes out, your Sensor alarm will power itself for up to 10 years from the date of manufacture.
Do I need to change the batteries in the Sensor Smoke alarm?
No. Every Sensor alarm will power itself for 10 years. This is fantastic for home occupiers, a money saver and great for the environment too. We estimate we will save over 50 million batteries ending up in landfill over the next 10 years. We can all do our bit for the environment.
What happens if I open the installed Sensor Smoke alarm?
Please don’t as there is no need for you to open the alarm. If you do open the alarm, it will beep twice, then let your property manager know it has been opened and show in their software as tamper alert
Can I cover the alarm?
No. Your lease will state you cannot tamper with any smoke alarm installed in your home. If the Sensor alarm is covered, it is likely to set an alert for your property manager, so for the sake of your safety, and the inconvenience and likely cost to you for a call out, never do this.
Should I remove cobwebs from around an installed alarm?
Yes, and on a regular basis if there are spiders or bugs residing in the vicinity of the alarm. Never spray insect repellent near an installed smoke alarm. You can use a hose vacuum cleaner, close to the alarm for 30 seconds, but do not touch the alarm. Click here to see instructions on how to best care for your Sensor Smoke Alarms. They are installed to protect your life and others living in your home in the event of a fire, so please care for them well.
Do Sensor devices record or film anything in the property?
No. There are never recording devices in Sensor Smoke alarms.
Are any Sensor Alarms or the Sensor Hub connected to my home WiFi ?
No. The Sensor products connect to each other in your home via Radio frequency , as approved by CSIRO. The Sensor Hub has its own connection to the internet using mobile phone networks.
