The highest standard of quality for the highest level of protection.
Gira smoke alarm devices protect your home against outbreaks of fire – safely and reliably. The “Q” label stands for highest quality standards, a long lifeapan, less deceptive alarms, and increased stability. Based on the photoelectric scattered light principle, the devices register small smoke particles and trigger an alarm as soon as the threshold value is exceeded. The battery will last up to 10 years, until the smoke alarm device must be replaced by law.
This product can be networked with other products.
This product is suitable for retrofitting.
The Basic Q smoke alarm device.
The Basic Q smoke alarm device operates on the scattered light principle and responds immediately with a loud pulsing alarm tone (85 dB) and a red LED ring. Simple and effective. Thanks to its understated design, it blends in neatly with any interior style.
The Gira Dual Q smoke alarm device.
The Gira Dual Q combines two detection methods in one device: its optical and thermal sensors register even the smallest smoke particles and changes of temperature in the room. This way, various types of fire (including liquid fire) can be identified early on. You won't have to worry about false alarms, either: the Gira Dual Q is not triggered by cooking fumes, dust, or electronic intereferences.
FAQ - frequently asked questions about Gira smoke alarm devices
The smoke alarm signals "low battery", what should I do?
In most cases, the unit is past its replacement date; if it is more than 10 years old, it needs to be replaced. The first step is to check the replacement date on the back of the smoke alarm.
However, there are several other factors that can reduce the battery life. A full summary can be found in the operating instructions. Other factors for a weak battery are:
The frequency with which the smoke alarm is triggered: frequent false alarms or test alarms lead to an earlier discharge.
The location of the installation, in particular compliance with the installation instructions according to the operating manual: Excessive temperature fluctuations, e.g. due to environmental influences, lead to reduced battery life.
Networking of smoke alarms via the networking terminal: if several smoke alarms are connected to each other, the battery life can be reduced.
The additional use of modules: The use of additional functions (e.g. KNX signal transmitter) can also lead to a reduction in battery life.
If none of these factors apply to you, contact your local electrician to have the device checked.
The smoke alarm is beeping, what should I do?
The smoke alarms can emit different operating or alarm signals. Please refer to the operating instructions to find out what the signal indicates. Examples of operating signals:
a general fault (8 short signal tones in 60s cycle),
a weak battery (2 short signal tones in 60s cycle) or
an EMC fault (short signal tone in 1s cycle).
