Interlinking Detectors are making Scottish users safer than ever


On the 1st of February 2022, Scotland made interlinking smoke and heat detectors a legal requirement to improve fire safety in properties as a direct result of the devastating Grenfell Tower fire in London.

The legislation update ensures all people in Scotland have the same level of protection regardless of whether their property is owner-occupied or lived in by renters; each person is guaranteed the same level of safety alert from fires regardless of their housing situation.

Interlinking a property’s smoke and heat detectors ensures that if one device is triggered, the others within the property will also sound. By creating an interconnected system, the risk of delayed alarm activation is significantly reduced, potentially saving lives and minimising property damage.

As businesses and homeowners continue to adapt to these regulations, it’s vital that reliable and compliant solutions are installed so properties remain safe from the risk of fire.

At Pyronix, we have just that.

Our systems offer our customers compliance with legal requirements and insurance grading. In addition, we’ve developed a range of interlinking detectors that adhere to the exact requirements set by the Scottish government.

Our award-winning Enforcer V11 now seamlessly integrates with smoke and heat sensors to provide an all-in-one security and safety system with interlinking fire detection.

Designed to provide comprehensive protection for residential properties, the Enforcer V11 is a complete security system, boasting an intuitive interface and customisable features, ideal for maintaining a robust interlinking network.

The system offers reliable performance, enhanced wireless technology and two-way communication for seamless interaction between connected devices. It also offers app integration, allowing users to conveniently control and monitor their system remotely via HomeControl2.0.

HomeControl2.0 alerts end-users to life-safety scenarios through their panel. A huge advantage to this is, unlike standard interlinking solutions, Pyronix end-users will receive notification directly to their smart device, no matter where they are in the world, allowing them to take action as necessary.
