Ekho Hybrid Wireless Training Complete

We are pleased to confirm that all of our sales and support team have successfully completed training on the new Ekho wireless system from Hochiki. A special thanks to Hochiki who were able to deliver this training during these challenging times.

What is Ekho?

In a nutshell Ekho is new range of wireless devices which integrate directly with the Hochiki ESP addressable protocol. The integration of these, in combination with the existing hardwired equivalents, allows for a hybrid wireless system.
