The three main types of fire alarm system are:
Conventional Fire Alarms
These fire detection systems divide your premises into zones (or areas). In the event of an alarm activation – either triggered automatically by a smoke detector or manually by a ‘break glass/call point’ alarm – the wiring linked to an main fire alarm control panel will identify the zone/area that has been activated. But it won’t indicate the precise device or room.
Addressable Fire Alarms
With an analogue addressable fire alarm system, each individual device/detector, such as a smoke or heat detector, has its own unique address or number allowing it to be identified on the system. If one device is triggered or has a fault, the fire alarm system control panel tells you precisely where the problem is.
Wireless Fire Alarms
A fire detection system which uses a secure wireless links between the sensor and the fire alarm control panel. Most wireless system have the same types of devices available as the wired systems mentioned above for example but require no cabling. As a result there is minimal disruption to the premises during installation, and installation time is also reduced. These are ideal for older buildings or where quick deployment of a system is required.
