Fire Alarms in Orange & San Mateo, CA
Why it is Important?
Fire Alarm systems have come quite a long way here in the United States. By the late 1800’s, the first electronic fire alarm was invented, using a thermostat to detect heat and then activate fire sprinklers. Today, addressable fire alarm systems use microprocessor technology to not only detect the fire, but to also pin-point the exact location and communicate that instantaneously to the responding authorities.
There are two main types of fire alarm systems, Conventional and Addressable.
Conventional Systems are ideal for small buildings, such as office spaces or small retailers. Set up in individual zones, each zone is hardwired to the control panel. The panel employs one or more initiating circuits in parallel to achieve this. One thing to keep in mind is that the information communication is limited to the number of circuits used. Lastly, unlike its count-part, the conventional system can only tell you which zone or circuit has activated but cannot tell you the exact device which brings us full circle as of why they are ideal for smaller coverage locations.
Addressable systems are much more advanced than their conventional counterparts, with an incredible high-level degree of programming flexibility and the ability to detect points on singular basis. Because this system is not limited to just zones, each device has its own unique address making it ideal for large spaces, commercial retailers, warehouses, high-rises, etc. Using multiple single line circuits, each devices identification address constantly communicates with the control panel utilizing that microprocessor technology to report within seconds any alarms, supervisory, or trouble conditions.
