Silent Knight introduces new fire alarm monitoring system

Farenhyt IFP-NET-3 speeds emergency response, simplifies fire alarm use and maintenance


NORTHFORD, Conn., November 21, 2011 - Silent Knight by Honeywell introduces a dynamic fire alarm monitoring system designed to simplify the management and maintenance of multiple fire alarms and speed response to emergency events. The Farenhyt 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 - no extra fiber or wire required - 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 intuitive, Microsoft Windows-based IFP-NET-3 software. When an event occurs, such as a smoke detector in alarm, the IFP-NET-3 display immediately 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 who to alert, all of which can be simultaneously emailed to key personnel.

The IFP-NET-3 monitoring system's graphics can be easily customized with icons and information tags to indicate hazardous material storage, occupants requiring additional assistance and other noteworthy areas. Specific information can also be stored to direct IFP-NET-3 operators on how to respond and who to notify during different events such as a fire versus a gas leak versus a general maintenance alarm. A lengthy log of historical information, including all emergency events and maintenance alerts, will provide facility managers valuable insight on potential issues, helping to avoid false alarms and make an extensive network of fire alarms much easier to maintain.

Ideal applications for IFP-NET-3 monitoring systems include school campuses, healthcare facilities, industrial sites, government buildings and other commercial sites comprising multiple systems. The IFP-NET-3 can even monitor Silent Knight and Farenhyt fire alarm systems in remote locations across the U.S.
