    LACORS 2009 behind the times?

    I have recently had a Private Sector Licensing inspection at a shared house (3-bed on 2 stories). Tenants unrelated but sharing as a group rather than bed-sits.

    The Council is insisting on me installing mains-powered interlinked alarms because that is what LACORS 2009 specifies.
    However, when that was written, interlinked 10-year sealed lithium battery units were not available as they are now.

    Anything I can do to get them to accept these rather than having to go down the route of an expensive (and potentially ugly) installation of mains-powered alarms?

    I heard they are updating the standards for smoke detectors with a view to allowing some battery interlinked ones

    In my opinion there is a lot less to go wrong with wired ones as they cannot be blocked by wifi interference and are more reliable as well as having (the better ones) sealed lithium batteries

    Have a look at the Aico 3000 range for the main escape routes, you can add Aico wireless 10 year battery to this system

      Many thanks for this. If anyone has any further information on the updating process, please do post it

        BS 5839-Part 6 is being updated with the removal of some of the little used categories. I've not heard anything about the updating of LACORS.
