Wireless detector

The Plumis Hydra Wireless Detector DT01 is a custom version of the Apollo multicriteria smoke + heat alarms 51000-150 / 51000-357 which is designed to EN 14604:2005 and UL217 respectively. The Plumis DT01 includes a proprietary 2.4GHz wireless communication to the sprayheads to indicate there is a potential fire. The combination of a smoke alarm with a temperature sensor improves response times for both flaming and smouldering fires as well as reducing false alarms from certain nuisances such as cooking fumes. It is CE Marked to the harmonised European standards that apply to this alarm. 

Important! If any wireless alarm connected to Automist Smartscan Hydra is removed or faulty it will cause the system to enter fault mode and sound. This condition can be hushed for 12 hours by pressing the STOP button but only be permanently removed by addressing the fault.
