The Alula RE617 is a Connect+ encrypted wireless heat detector that is compatible with the Alula Connect+ security system panel. The RE617 heat alarm is a fire-protection device that alarms when it detects temperatures above 135°F (57°C) or temperature changes greater than 15°F (8.3°C)/min and the temperature is above 104°F (40°C). The red LED on the alarm sensing heat flashes rapidly to indicate this is the alarm sensing heat/fire.
If the premises is one story you should put your first smoke alarm in a corridor or hallway between the sleeping and living areas. Place it as near to the living area as possible, but make sure that it can be heard loudly enough in the bedroom to wake someone. In houses with more than one sleeping area, smoke alarms should be placed between each sleeping area and the living area and it is recommended that heat alarms should be placed in the kitchen and garage.
If your home has more than one floor, at least one alarm should be fitted on each level. Preferably the alarms should be interconnected (if feature is present on unit) so as to give sufficient warning throughout the property. Alarms should be located in a typical two story house. Note the spacings in "Protection Levels" which ensure the early detection of fire and that the warning will be heard. Locate heat alarms in rooms adjoining escape routes - kitchens, garages, boiler houses etc. where smoke alarms are unsuitable.
Fire authorities recommend you put individual smoke alarms in or near all rooms where fire is most likely to break out (apart from the locations to avoid e.g bathrooms). The living room is the most likely place for a fire to start at night, followed by the kitchen (where a heat alarm is recommended) and then the dining room. Consideration should be given to installing smoke alarms in any bedrooms where fires might occur, for instance, where there is an electrical appliance such as an electric blanket or heater, or where the occupant is a smoker. In addition, consideration should be also given to installing smoke alarms in any rooms where the occupant is unable to respond very well to a fire starting in that room, such as an elderly or sick person or a very young child.
