As with anything in the security systems industry, prevention is vital. Preventing catastrophic loss is a top priority and one of the most crucial security system components that helps avoid such situations is the fire alarm system.
ADDRESSABLE FIRE DETECTION SYSTEM - STAND ALONE
To understand the addressable fire alarm system you must first understand what a fire alarm system is.
In general a fire alarm system is a group of devices i.e. smoke detectors, heat sensors, strobes, alarms & Manual Call Points that send a signal to the fire alarm Control panel when a device is activated.
One of the many benefits of an addressable fire alarm system is that each device is given its own unique address. In the event of a triggered alarm a single device can be pinpointed which gives responders a more concise location as to where a fire might be occurring. This helps save precious time and improves life safety. It’s also helpful in the event a device is malfunctioning or requires maintenance.
Installing an addressable system, “…eliminates the need for expensive testers, excessive labor for testing, and gives you the ability to automatically generate the same reports directly from the software you used to program the panel
The appeal of quick installs, concise reporting of fire occurrences, and the ease of inspection and system testing will continue to draw support for addressable systems
The ability to be able to remotely interrogate the fire system is another feature which is extremely important for both the end-user and fire detection installer as it allows them to identify problems before they actually happen, saving time and money by reducing unnecessary visits to site. Furthermore, more and more clients are requesting the ability to monitor their fire system using their existing Internet infrastructure: www.ibrfire.com / www.buzzapex.com
