GE expands fire & life safety product offerings

Bradenton, Fla. – April 1, 2009 – GE Security Inc., a business of GE Enterprise Solutions (NYSE: GE), today announced its newly launched FireworX brand of conventional and intelligent addressable fire and life safety systems representing a cost-effective fire alarm solution. Designed for small to mid-sized buildings, FireworX portfolio of products provides installers, contractors, building owners and occupants with a valuable and economical solution to meet their individual needs.

With FireworX, any small to mid-size building can have the same installation and troubleshooting features that were once only available on high-end life safety systems. Currently, GE Security’s distribution partners are seeing great success with the installation and servicing process and are receiving positive feedback from current and potential customers.

“Our customers are looking for a fire and life safety system that will ensure the protection of their property regardless of size,” said Mike Dickinson of D-Blaze Inc. “GE Security is a trusted name within the industry and they stand behind what they do. FireworX provides our customers comfort in knowing that such a system, similar to that used in larger hotels and buildings, has been adapted for their safety and protection.”

With control panels, devices, and accessories all engineered to work in unison, FireworX brand products provide reliable performance and the features needed for successful installation and worry-free operation. From maintenance alerts and reporting via TCPIP connectivity to correlation configuration, no installation is too small for the convenience and reliability of intelligent addressable fire detection and system control.

“Our customers who have implemented FireworX have found the experience extremely positive,” said Crystal Hughes of Appalachian Protective. “The intuitive interface and ease-of-use make FireworX a competitive system on the market today.”

“FireworX demonstrates that value doesn’t have to come at the expense of quality,” said Ted Milburn, product marketing manager for GE Security. “When it comes to life safety there is simply no room for compromise and that is why GE Security remains committed to providing our customers with the solutions they need to meet their security requirements regardless of the job’s scope.”
