Elk’s Two-Way Wireless Smoke Detectors Talk to Each Other
The ELK-6050 has the ability to sound all enrolled smoke detectors in case of an emergency.
April 10, 2014 by Rachel Cericola

We can all agree that smoke detectors are an absolute necessity, correct? However, what if a detector is triggered and you can’t actually hear it?

Elk Products is addressing this potential problem with the new ELK-6050 Two-Way Wireless Sound All Smoke Detector. This wirelessly interconnected smoke detector can actually trigger several smoke detectors during a fire alarm.

It doesn’t matter if the fire is detected by the ELK-6050 or another source. Once detected, Elk’s two-way wireless technology allows ELK M1 Controls to activate the built-in sounders in all of the enrolled smoke detectors.

Powered by 3V Lithium batteries, the ELK-6050 features photoelectric smoke detection technology and boasts rapid “rate-of-rise” and fixed temperature detection. Designed for use with the ELK-M1XRFTW Two-Way Wireless Transceiver for M1 Controls, the ELK-6050 uses the 900MHz frequency-hopping spread spectrum, which promises signal diversity and agility.

Elk Products is selling the ELK-6050 now through all of the company’s authorized distributors. For a list of those installers and retailers, check out the Elk website.
