Fire Detection – BB SmartFlow

Fire Detection

Optical smoke detector with built-in battery.

Equipped with a 10-year sealed lithium battery and a Hush feature to silence nuisance alarms, this detector is suitable for any room in your home.

  • Hassle-free protection– You never have to replace a battery during the lifetime of the detector. There is no need to worry that the battery may be intentionally removed, rendering the detector inoperable.
  • Always on– The sealed-in lithium battery powers the detector for its entire 10-year lifetime.
  • Save money
  • The right alarm, the right location– The smoke detector includes features designed to address location-specific safety needs – sound and light.
  • Easy installation– Options to attach the detector with mounting tape or fixing with a set of screws and dowels to the ceiling or wall. Mounting elements are included in the kit.


The optical-smoke detector contains a sealed-in battery with a 10-year life cycle and a sounder providing an 85dB sound alarm in case of fire and malfunction. The innovative design ensures automatic activation after the module is attached to its base; no buttons to pull, no switches, everything is automatic. At the end of the battery life, the device will beep, indicating that the detector needs replacement. To disable the audible indication, the customer can unscrew the detector from its base, which will render the detector non-functional and safe for disposal in designated waste electronic equipment areas.

The sealed battery ensures normal operation of the detector throughout its life cycle by eliminating the need for battery replacement and eliminating the worry of unauthorized battery removal. The detector provides continuous protection against smoke and fire, even during power outages.

Industry experts, recommend that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help ensure maximum detection of the various types of fires that can occur within the home. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with fast flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible fire particles (associated with slow smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms.

Key Features

  • Sealed-in Lithium Battery – No battery replacement required during the 10-year lifetime of the detector. Eliminates worry about battery removal or unauthorized deactivation of the alarm.
  • Photoelectric sensor – Advanced photoelectric sensor may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) earlier than ionization alarms.
  • Self activation– The detector is automatically activated when mounted to its base.
  • Alarm Memory – Three flashes every 43 seconds of the green LED alerts the user if the alarm has been activated since the last last time the test button was used.
  • Test/Silence Button – Tests alarm circuitry and activates Hush features.
  • Hush feature – Temporarily silences nuisance alarms for approximately 10 minutes, during that time the detector remains operational at a higher sensitivity level.
  • LED – The red LED will blink in conjunction with the alarm sound when the detector is activated.
  • End-of-life warning – the alarm emits a short pulse sound every 43 seconds to indicate that the device is in need to be replaced.
  • 10 year warranty

Architectural and Engineering Specifications

The smoke detector shall be powered by a non-replaceable lithium battery with a 10-year life. The lithium battery shall be sealed in the device to prevent removal and/or tampering. The device shall include a photoelectric sensor. The operating temperature range should be between 0ºC and 40ºC, and the operating humidity operating shall be 10%-85% RH non-condensing relative humidity. The smoke alarm can be installed on the surface of any wall or ceiling following the Manufacturer’s approved placement guidelines. The detector shall incorporate automatic activation feature that will activate the unit as soon as it is attached to its base without any other steps. The detector shall include a test button that will electronically simulate the presence of smoke and cause the unit to go into alarm. This sequence tests the unit’s electronics, battery and horn to ensure proper operation. The device shall include a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 dB at 3 meters. The unit shall include a Hush feature that silences the unit for approximately 10 minutes if an nuisance alarm condition occurs. The unit shall indicate low battery condition with a brief alarm chirp once every 43 seconds. In the standby state, the LED will flash every 330 seconds. It will also blink every 10 seconds while in Hush mode. The smoke alarm shall include an end-of-battery warning where the unit shall emit a brief pulsating sound every 30 seconds to indicate that the alarm needs to be replaced. The unit shall at a minimum meet the requirements of EN 14604:2005 standard The device also includes a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty.
