Why Hush-Activ?

SAFER
Raises the typical level of fire protection in a dwelling from BS 5839-6 Grade D (unmonitored Mains/Battery Alarms) to Grade C (monitored wiring and a central controller)

EASY-TO-ACCESS USER CONTROLS
No need to stand on a chair to Test or Hush/Silence devices

SECURE MONITORED WIRING
All field wiring monitored for open and short circuit faults

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
Up to 50% reduction in the mains power consumption of a typical Grade D system, less plastic and only one replaceable lithium-ion battery per system providing over 72 hours standby

REDUCED LIFETIME OWNERSHIP COSTS
Separate fire detectors and sounders are less expensive to replace than Mains/Battery Alarms and all smoke detectors have built-in drift compensation to increase service life expectancy

NO INTRUSIVE BS 5839-1 MAINTENANCE VISITS
Monthly user/occupant test is sufficient

DIRECT GRADE D SYSTEM UPGRADES
Utilises the same wiring scheme as most Mains/Battery Alarm solutions

Hush-Activ Operation

  • Press HUSH when there is an Unwanted Alarm to silence the system for 2 minutes (extendable by a further 2 minutes if the Alarm has not cleared). Press TEST for 3 seconds when the system is in its normal state to briefly sound the Alarm sounder(s). BS 5839-6 2019 recommends this test is carried out by occupants at least once a month.
  • Press HUSH when a wiring or battery fault is detected to silence the fault buzzer for 24 hours. Occupants should report the fault to the responsible person/service engineer at their earliest convenience
  • Press HUSH when the system is in its normal state to deactivate alarm detection for 15 minutes (’hot works’ function).
