Fire alarm monitoring system

Silent Knight by Honeywell has introduced a dynamic fire alarm monitoring system.


Silent Knight by Honeywell has introduced a dynamic fire alarm monitoring system designed to simplify the management and maintenance of multiple fire alarms and speed response to emergency events. The IFP-NET-3 displays detailed, floor-by-floor layouts of protected facilities and their fire alarm systems. As many as 200 Farenhyt and Silent Knight fire alarms can be tied together using an existing Ethernet, which allows multiple sites in a large geographic area to be monitored from one location. Real-time fire alarm status and event information can be viewed on one or more PCs programmed with the Windows-based IFP-NET-3 software. When an event occurs, the IFP-NET-3 display zooms to the facility's affected area and the device in alarm. To speed emergency response, detailed information about the fire alarm event is provided, along with any pre-programmed instructions such as what to do or whom to alert, all of which can be simultaneously e-mailed to key personnel.
