Pros & Cons – FireAngel Pro Connected 6 piece home kit

The positives
The app is well though out, the ability to label the location of each alarm is brilliant.
The ability to test the alarms from the app is also great.
App notifications of any issues including network loss.
New devices bought since being setup just show up in the app.
Support are very helpful and patient.

No videos on how to add this to an existing mesh network either.

What’s the difference between this FP2620W2-R and the WST630 is fp an newer model?

The fp2620w2-r is a newer model, however is still works in the same way as the WST-630. We always aim for continuous improvement, so the main difference with the Pro Connected range is that they use updated internal components for even better safety and reliability. Hope this provides you with the answers you require.

This alarm is elegant for humid, dusty and areas with high fumes where a standard smoke alarm would false alarm but for complete protection of the home install both smoke and heat alarms.

FireAngel Pro Connected 6 piece home kit ST-622 review

The unit has been designed to either be wall mounted or left portable so you can take it on holiday for protection on the go. It’s also suitable for caravans, motor caravans and boats following advice from BS EN 50292-2013.

As well as being calibrated and rigorously tested in-house the alarm has been third party approved through The British Standards Institute (BSI) and is Kitemark certified.

In the event of a CO alert you’re advised to turn off all fuel burning appliances if possible, ventilate, then vacate the premises and contact the Gas Emergency Service.

FireAngel Pro Connected Smart Gateway (hub for use with FireAngel Pro Connected Alarms

Connects to your home broadband supply using an Ethernet cable (supplied) but should the internet connection fail all alarms will still operate fully within the home. As a minimum it is recommended that you install this gateway alongside – 2 x smoke alarms, 1 x kitchen heat alarm and a Carbon Monoxide alarm for each gas burning appliance – from the Pro Connected Range.

Is this product recognised by the fire brigade?

I wouldn’t be too driven by the Fire Brigade ‘s recommendations as it depends if these are for your own property or for a rental. These alarms are approved for installation in Rent/LET properties and meet the required high standards set out by councils/government. As they have a sealed battery this cannot be removed or tampered which was found with the removable battery type. People removed the battery when it beeped and forgot to replace it or used the battery to power a small appliance i.e portable game console. Hard wired smoke/heat detectors (these come with a battery back up) are preferred but these type are easily fitted/replaced although a little more expensive.

If it goes off when cooking can you turn it off from the smartphone?

You can initiate the Smart Silence feature from the app, but only if the smoke sensed by the alarm is minimal & below a set threshold. If the smoke sensed is below this threshold then the Smart Silence feature can be activated for 10 minutes and the alarm will be silenced. However, if the smoke sensed during this time increases the alarm will revert back into alarm mode to alert you to the danger. Please note the Smart Silence feature cannot be used at any point if the smoke present is excessive and above the set thresholds – at this time you can only use the Smart Locate function which silences all alarms except those that sense the danger, allowing you to take action appropriately. We advise that all alarm alerts are investigated before using the Smart Silence function.

We would advise you install a heat alarm in the kitchen instead of a smoke alarm. Heat alarms react to rapid rises in temperature rather than smoke, preventing false alarms to cooking fumes. They’re also perfect for the garage or loft and will provide a rapid alert to danger in remote areas where fires can spread easily.
