Imagine a multi-story building or a sprawling hospital campus with hundreds of independent smoke detection devices and fire alarms. When a fire starts and begins to spread, a single alarm goes off. Soon the smoke spreads, a second alarm activates, and more alarms are sounding. By the time the firefighting units arrive, many alarms are sounding, and the emergency crew has no idea where the problem began nor the source of the problem. This situation can lead to a prolonged event, excessive property damage and possibly unnecessary injury and loss of life.

One solution is an addressable fire alarm control panel system.
