Fire alarm communication, monitoring tool

Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell expands its alarm and ECS response

04/20/2012


Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell has expanded its line of technologies designed to simplify the complexities of monitoring and controlling one or more fire alarm and emergency communication systems (ECS) and speed emergency response. The FocalPoint family of graphic workstations now includes a touchscreen monitor, high-speed desktop unit, and two mobile tablets, all made to provide facility/security managers and first responders real-time information and systems control virtually anywhere. Each FocalPoint unit provides bird's-eye views down to floor-by-floor layouts of all monitored facilities and their fire alarm and ECS's major components. These interactive displays automatically zero-in on devices in trouble or alarm, providing real-time information on the event and its location. Using FocalPoint, facility managers can easily troubleshoot system issues such as device tampering, and cleaning or replacement needs while security officials use it to quickly assess and respond to alarms or pinpoint repeat offenses.
