(1) Temperature sensor(s) optional depending on package solution.
(2) Power outages of more than 60 minutes will induce a connection failure alarm in the SikomConnect app.
(3) Not available on built-in socket, only with appropriate wireless extensions (ECO-Node, SI-3, EGR-1, etc.).
(4) Optional extension modules for the fuse-box such as EGR-1, as well as the wall-mount thermostats SI-3 should be installed by an electrician.
(5) Do not mix 230V and 12V DC (or lower) voltages inside a single module: the voltage must be roughly the same at the power supply and at the output/relay contacts of any given module. In order to mangage mixed 230V/12V voltages, please make sure to either use separate Sikom extension modules, or contactors, or basic auxiliary relays.
(6) Digital inputs = for usual detectors with NO or NC output (PIR, fire, gas, etc.). Analogic inputs = for measuring temperatures with sensors.
(7) When equipped with a backup battery, the device can send GSM alarms in case of power blackout.
(8) This accessory is plugged into a wireless extension (e.g. a wireless socket), which communicates with the central unit.
(9) This accessory is plugged into a wireless socket (ECO-Node), which communicates with the central unit.
(10) Requires a 12V DC power adapter providing 1A (12W) output.
