X-Sense’s expertise in wireless interconnection allows you to stay informed of the safety conditions in your entire home and handle abnormalities swiftly. The X-Sense XS01-WR Wireless Interconnected Smoke Alarm is equipped with a replaceable battery and provides 5 years of home protection. But the alarm has a service life of 10 years, so you’ll only need to replace the battery once.
A low-battery notification reminds you to replace the battery, ensuring continuous protection of your family. Remember to replace when the red indicator flashes with 1 beep every 60 seconds. The alarm noise level measures 85 dB within 39.4 in, which is loud enough to be heard by your whole family and alert you in case of an emergency.
An insect-proof design functions as a buffer, isolating the sensor from insects, thus ensuring high accuracy. Press the Test/Silence button on any interconnected alarm to quickly identify the source alarm. If all alarms are silenced, then the smoke alarm you tested is the source alarm.
X-Sense XS01-WR Wireless Interconnected Smoke Alarm Review
This X-Sense alarm has been upgraded to perform smoke concentration analysis at least 3 times every 10 seconds, thus eliminating interference from wind, dust, and non-hazardous smokes.
They were very easy to link together. They were also easy to install and look neat on the ceiling. The light is on the side, so you can have it pointing away from heads of beds etc. which can be helpful, plus I like the fact that if the alarm does sound, you can tell which one triggered it as all the others will silence when you press the button. No more running around the house trying to check every single room.
We have only had them installed for a couple of weeks but have had no false alarms so far and they are easy to test (and very loud). They have no problems connecting to each other around a 4 bed house – where they are on different floors and 6-7 metres apart.
The manufacturer told me they expect to be launching a linked heat alarm in the summer, so I am looking forward to adding some of those to my network. One big negative is that with the replaceable battery they don’t meet the requirements for Scotland, but they are a nice piece of kit and work well for the rest of the UK.
Overall, the X-Sense XS01-WR Wireless Interconnected Smoke Alarm are a great solution for the rest of the UK.
