Many people have had the experience of fire alarms going off, thinking that the fire was already extinguished. Many of these alarms were incorrectly reset to start as soon as the alarm was triggered. If your home alarm system has a start/stop feature, and it is activated when the alarm goes off, the fire alarm will be turned on at the same time the fire department arrives.
It is possible for fire protection alarm systems to reset fire alarms remotely. Usually fire alarms are activated when smoke or flames are detected in the fire alarm system itself.
Fire alarm systems can be set to notify the fire department via any device that is controlled by a personal computer. This may include a phone, answering machine, or a personal computer. When you purchase an alarm system, you should also get a ‘start-stop’ feature to notify the fire department to respond quickly.
The start-stop feature allows the fire alarm system to be programmed to either “starts” after a pre-determined number of minutes (the start time), or “stops” after a predetermined number of minutes (the stop time). The Firewall control panel operates on these two times. The system can be configured to either control the fire alarm to “stop” when the fire department arrives, or to allow the fire alarm to “start” when the fire department arrives.
There are many uses for these functions. When the alarm system is activated by an accident or mishap in the home, the fire control panel begins monitoring fire alarms in the home. This can help make a determination as to whether or not to send help to the scene. In some cases the system can be configured to call the fire department using the contact telephone number on the user’s Firewall control panel.
This feature allows the fire protection alarm system to be set to automatically call the fire department upon detection of smoke, fire, or flames inside the home. The system can be set to call the fire department directly if they are outside the home.
When your alarm is triggered, the Firewall control panel is programmed to either enable or disable the fire protection alarm in your home alarm system. The system can also be programmed to call the fire department using your telephone. If the system detects smoke, fire, or flames, it is also programmed to have the system to activate the control panel so that it can send a message to the control panel at the fire station. When the fire department arrives, the control panel will shut down the alarm.
The system has a number of settings available to control the alerts and the level of alerts that are sent out. The firewall can be set to send alerts for smoke, for a certain number of minutes, or for an entire hour. Most fire protection alarm systems allow you to set the system to “dry run” so that you can test what level of alerts the system sends out before an actual emergency situation takes place.
A fire protection alarm system can also be set to activate only when there is smoke detected in the home. This feature enables you to program the system to only activate the fire alarm if there is actually smoke detected. You can program the system to send out an alert when there is a fire.
The firewall will send a message to the control panel in the event that the alarm goes off. The system can be set to alert the control panel when smoke is detected inside the home, when a fire is detected, or when there is smoke detected anywhere in the home. If a fire is detected, the fire control panel is programmed to start monitoring the smoke detection, fire detection, and fire suppression units.
The firewall will also send a message to the control panel when there is a fire detected anywhere in the house. This message is used for fire suppression. When the system is set to monitor all three zones, a message is sent out to the control panel indicating that the fire suppression system is being activated.
If you have a fire protection alarm system, it is a good idea to have a professional fire suppression company come to your home to check on the system. The professionals will ensure that the system is operating properly and is working safely to prevent a fire from occurring.
