Electro Detectors Wireless Fire Alarm Systems
Electro Detectors Ltd is located in offices and factory that were purposely built in the Essex, Harlow, they take great pride in the product design and high quality of our equipment, especially as it is all manufactured and designed right here in the UK.
Established in 1972 Electro Detectors produce and distribute the equipment through a dedicated network of fire alarm companies throughout the UK, who have advanced radio fire detection and alarm systems skills. Wireless fire alarm detection first came onto the market during the early 1980’s. During that time, countless National Trust and English Heritage buildings, in addition to dwellings that were owned privately, who were seriously looking for a replacement for traditionally hardwired fire alarms considering the difficulties as well as disruption in which this type of fire alarm would bring.
Electro Detectors is compliant to the Wireless Fire Alarm Code EN54-25
Since 1988 our company has been developing and manufacturing radio fire alarms, also commonly known as Wireless systems, that you can now purchase throughout the UK. We have now gone further afield into parts of Europe and Scandinavia. Our company have been attributed as being the first to bring to the market a radio sounder and also the first manufacturer to produce a mixed sounder/detector. Our radio systems are entirely intelligent/addressable which enables it to provide protection for just about every application, this could be from a small private residence to a much larger system in advance of 3000 devices.
Cellular phone technology throughout the last 10 years has produced massive advancements when it comes to radio technology. As a result, this has allowed Electro-Detectors to enhance our product range both in operation and design.

The History of Electro Detectors
1982 – 1984 Electro Detectors enter the fire detection products industry in 1982 with the ED series Hardwired Alarm Control Panel, with the Alpha-R and Alpha-S detectors.
1987 -With only one recognised wireless fire alarm system on the market at the time being the RAFE from Thorn now Tyco/ADT, Electro Detectors could see the need for an alternative Wireless System and brought to the market the A-Series. The A-Series had wireless detection with the smoke detector the EDA-R2000 and the manual call point the EDA-C200. However, wire-free Sounders was not available at this time.
This technology was very new to the market, so much so, that there was no allowance for wireless systems within the fire code BS5839: Fire Detection and Alarm Systems for Buildings. However, with the huge advancement in radio technology due to the mobile phone, Electro Detectors decided to bring this technology to the fire alarm industry.
The History of Electro Detectors
1992 – Electro Detectors first wireless sounder was introduced to operate on the A-Series system.
1994 – A revised manual call point EDA-C200 was brought to the market.
1997 – As radio technology continued to improve, Electro Detectors launched an improved wireless system called the Millennium. The Millennium was addressable, capable of handling 3000 devices and operating with a new range of wireless devices.
- EDA-R400 Combined Optical Smoke Detector and Sounder
- EDA-D400 Combined Heat Detector and Sounder
- EDA-R300 Optical Smoke
- EDA-D300 Heat Detector
- EDA-C300 Manual Call Point
- EDA-A230 Radio Sounder with Beacon
The manual call point was revised in 2002 This system was the one that put Electro Detectors on the map as a pioneer and leader in the field of wireless systems. The system lasted until 2004
2004 – Electro Detectors seeing there was a need to introduced a smaller system with advanced programming features launched a new product called the ZerioZ1000. This system was aesthetically pleasing to look at and was aimed at smaller installations commercial and residential.
The wireless devices were:
- EDA-C1000 Radio Call-point
- EDA-R1000 Radio Smoke Detector
- EDA-R2000 Radio Smoke Detector with Sounder
2010 – Due to the Construction Products Regulation CPR all radio systems had to obtain a CE mark, by their product complying with the wireless product code EN54-25. The Zerio 1000 did not comply; therefore Electro Detectors had to introduce a new system called the Zerio Plus. Certification to EN54-25 for this system was obtained in 2013.
Electro Detectors have the smallest wireless system on the market and the only system that can state it is completely wireless.
