If you own a commercial property, it is critical to protect your building with a fire alarm system to notify the occupants and alert the authorities in the event of an emergency. A wireless or partially wireless fire alarm system is a modern, reliable, and secure way to provide fire detection throughout a finished property with areas that may be difficult or impossible to run wires in. Here are some advantages of installing a wireless fire alarm system:
WIRELESS FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS ARE EASIER TO INSTALL THAN WIRED FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
The main value of installing a wireless fire alarm system are speed and flexibility. A conventional system needs to be completely hardwired, but a system using wireless technology only needs a few screws at each device. This makes it so wireless devices can be quickly installed anywhere they’re needed saving time and labor dollars.
WIRELESS FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS ARE AESTHETICALLY PLEASING
Hardwired fire alarm systems require the installation of cables to connect each device. In a finished building that can mean damaging walls and ceilings to run wires where they’re needed, or installing exposed electrical conduits. If the appearance of your property is a concern, wireless fire alarm devices may be your best choice!
WIRELESS FIRE ALARM SYSTEMS ARE EASY TO CHANGE
When buildings are changed due to renovations or tenant fit outs, fire alarm devices may need to be removed and re-installed in the same or a different location. With wireless fire alarm devices, that is no problem! Wireless fire alarm devices are easy to move to the best location to provide the needed protection in the new space.
WIRELESS FIRE ALARM DEVICES ARE NOT A MAINTENANCE PROBLEM
Wireless fire alarm devices utilize long life batteries that work for years without needing to be changed. Each wireless device constantly monitors the strength of its battery and provides a notification through the fire alarm control panel if it needs to be replaced. Incorporating battery replacement into your fire alarm’s inspection and maintenance program also ensures uninterrupted coverage from your wireless devices.
Advances in technology have made wireless fire alarm systems a reliable trouble-free alternative to hardwired systems. They offer all the same features and even offer a way to integrate wireless components with an already hard-wired system. It is important to work with a fire alarm professional who can help determine if a wireless or partially wireless system is the right choice. Understanding the pros and cons of each type of system will help you decide which system would be the best fit for your building.
