Signifire technology is recognized by NFPA 72 as an authorized flame and smoke initiating device.



Fike has announced the acquisition of axonX LLC , a developer

of video image flame and smoke detection technologies (also called Video Image

Detection or VID). Fike and axonX will continue to market the product line

under the SigniFire brand.



technology merges security camera architecture with image analysis, artificial

intelligence, and patented signal processing technologies to create an early

warning fire detection system. The system detects smoke, flame, and motion,

providing a more comprehensive alert for protected spaces.



technology is recognized by NFPA 72 as an authorized flame and smoke initiating

device and the SigniFire IP camera is Factory Mutual (FM) approved. Used in

applications where traditional smoke detection technologies may not be

practical or efficient, axonX's current installations include fossil fuel power

plants, nuclear facilities, industrial facilities, cultural properties,

warehouses and tunnels.
