Fire Detection & Alarm System

Fire Detection & Alarm System

Aside from Public Address Systems, i3 also partners with Bosch Security Systems for Fire Detection and Alarm.

By monitoring changes in the environment, fire detection and alarm systems detect the presence of fire wherever they are installed. These systems may be manually or automatically actuated, or they can also be both. Manually actuated devices include break glass stations, and manual fire alarm activation, which are situated near the exits where they can easily be located. Automatically actuated systems are designed to automatically notify occupants to proceed with evacuation procedures by initiating a loud warning sound. It also automatically sends signals to emergency services such as the police, fire department and emergency medical services that there is an ongoing emergency situation that they should respond to. Lastly, these systems also automatically prepare the premises to control the spread of fire and smoke.

Bosch offers a broad portfolio of products and systems for accurate, reliable fire detection and notification. Together with Bosch, i3′s solutions are efficient and reliable.
