Security / Remote Fire Alarm
Smart Alarm Management with M2M Security Solutions
Thanks to M2M communication solutions, users can merge security facilities for commercial, public, or private buildings and properties into a smart system.
Security is a basic human need. Statutory security requirements in many public and commercial facilities take this need into account. Key requirements of building security are cost efficiency, simplicity, and reliability. M2M security solutions fulfill these requirements by means of a high level of automation.
Security-relevant events such as burglaries or fires are registered and reported automatically by means of sensors. The alarm is relayed via the mobile network to a control center that responds in real time. The user can manage all of the connected devices comfortably on his smartphone.
Remote Fire Alarms Help Fight Fires
Remote Fire Alarms Reduce Damage
Around 400 people a year die and 4,000 are injured in fires and over EUR 1 bn in fire damage is caused in the private sector alone. Remote fire alarms can ensure better and faster firefighting.
Remote fire alarms based on M2M technology are faster and more informative than analog devices. Conventional smoke alarms emit a loud warning signal in the event of a fire, but this alarm must first be heard and then relayed to the fire service. The new fire alarms do all of this automatically and are failsafe.
Notify the fire service automatically
Smoke alarms, which can be connected with each other, send an alarm to previously defined recipients such as the local fire service or a security firm. Data is transmitted to a smartphone by GPRS, thereby ensuring compliance with the statutory notification time of less than ten seconds. However the fire alarm relays more information than just that there is a fire. The solution also relays details of the alarm’s ID and precise location along with parameters that help explain the cause of the fire. Firefighters thereby receive all of the key data they require in order to respond optimally to the callout.
Make economic sense
Remote fire alarms can be connected inexpensively with surveillance facilities via the mobile network. The advantages are that swift and efficient firefighting operations can save lives and reduce the risk of serious and expensive damage to business premises and private properties. Insurance companies benefit from lower damages claims.
Digital service logs
The M2M technology of remote fire alarms also delivers benefits in contexts other than callouts. Irrespective of where they happen to be, users can check the status of each and every remote-controlled smoke alarm. Information on battery status and soiling of smoke alarms and room temperature can be retrieved anytime, anywhere. Special software makes remote-controlled, structured and standardized execution of regular testing and maintenance routines possible.
