Silent Knight launches new fire alarm control panel

NORTHFORD, Conn., March 22, 2010 - Silent Knight by Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has developed a 25-point fire alarm offering all the high-tech benefits of addressable technology at the cost of a conventional system. The new IntelliKnight 5600 fire alarm control panel and compatible HFS devices will be introduced at the 2010 ISC West Show, booth # 11041, located at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., March 24-26.

A cost-effective, addressable fire protection solution is now available for applications where two to five-zone conventional fire alarm systems have historically been installed. The addressable features of the IntelliKnight 5600 include pin-point identification of alarm/trouble locations and false alarm prevention via detector drift compensation and automatic maintenance alerts. Installation time-savers such as easy code-wheel addressed detectors, a "JumpStart" programming feature and a built-in programming browser to eliminate custom software requirements, simplify the process of commissioning an addressable system. The IntelliKnight 5600 supports any combination of addressable HFS detectors and modules that are conventionally priced and runs on only a single loop of standard wire (not shielded or twisted pair), offering additional cost-savings.

All IntelliKnight fire protection products are non-proprietary systems available through Security Equipment Distributors across the US. For more information on the latest fire protection technologies from Silent Knight, visit
