How Do Fire Alarm Systems Work?

A fire alarm system's sole purpose is to detect fires and alert both the persons in the building and emergency services. These life safety systems use a network of appliances, devices and control panels to perform the alarm functions. They also assist in notifying the fire department and other first responders.

Conventional Systems

Conventional fire alarm systems are designed as an early warning system for small facilities. This type of alarm system is the most accessible and affordable. There will be detectors installed in various detection areas which are hardwired to a control panel on fixed circuits. When detection devices like smoke detectors or heat detectors are triggered, the activated control panel will find the circuit that is the point of activation for the fire alarm.

Addressable Systems

Addressable fire alarm systems are designed for larger buildings and building complexes and more complex networks. Though theses systems maybe be slightly more expensive at times, they provide many other benefits like enhanced flexibility, identification time, and quality of control. This fire alarm system will get an indication if there is any smoke, fire, heat, or any malfunction from every point that is triggered to pinpoint the exact location of the disruption.Due to the intelligence and ease of installation of an addressable system, installation costs of a new or replacement system can sometimes actually be reduced. Blackstone can review your needs and help you make the most cost effective system to meet your needs.
