Fire alarm systems
A fire alarm system is a combination of devices that detect smoke, fire, flood, or dangerously high carbon monoxide concentration and transmit warnings when necessary. The system can be triggered to automatically sound an alarm when fire, smoke, or carbon monoxide is detected.
Any fire alarm system usually includes a control panel, an initiating device, and a notification device. A control panel is the system’s central device, which provides functionality and control over all its components.
Initiating devices such as heat and smoke detectors are used to monitor and detect potentially hazardous situations such as high temperature, fire, smoke, or high carbon monoxide concentration. A notification device receives information from the initiating device and emits audio, visual, audio-visual, tactile, textual, or even odorizing warnings in case of emergency.
Advantages of using a fire alarm system
Using a fire alarm system significantly decreases the chances of an accident. If the accidents still occur, the system will eliminate any potential threat of casualties and damage.
Most fire alarm systems automatically monitoring and analyzing data from the environment and trigger the alarm when fire or smoke is detected.
