PEW takes a look at the most sought after products from recent issues of Professional Electrician & Installer magazine to give you an insight into your key customers’ buying behaviour.
Pocket- sized guide
With the recent changes to BS 5839-6:2019, Aico has condensed the information into a pocket-sized guide.
British Standard BS 5839-6:2019 covers specific recommendations for fire alarm systems in all domestic premises and covers both new-build and existing properties. The standard contains a large amount of detail on all aspects relating to the design and installation of fire alarm systems, including the type of alarm to install and the areas of the property to protect.
To further support customers with the changes, Aico has updated its counter mat for Wholesalers. The counter mat has a picture of a house with alarms in situ, providing the information about where to site alarms conforming to the changes in BS 5839-6:2019 Table 1.

Wiser heating system
Drayton has announced a series of updates to its Wiser multi-room heating system, updating its Wiser OpenTherm module.
The new OpenTherm module allows boilers to continuously adapt their system temperatures by forming a connection between the boiler and heating control, providing real time room temperature demand updates. Once the heating control detects the home or individual room is reaching the desired set point room temperature, it will tell the linked OpenTherm boiler to lower the system temperature.
Additionally, Wiser Heat app has been updated to include new functionalities. Under the new ‘Functions’ pull up tab, users will be able to locate the new ‘Boost All’ and ‘Cancel All’ features. ‘Boost All’ will increase the temperature across every room thermostat and radiator thermostat by 2ºC for one hour. After the one-hour period, all boosts will be deactivated and rooms will return to the scheduled temperatures. Alternatively, if the user wants to turn off the boost earlier, they can do so using ‘Cancel All’ in the same pull up tab. When using these new functions, hot water won’t be affected in any way.
