"They can save themselves time, money and effort, without having to call us in," said Laro.
The system was rounded out with five addressable duct detectors, numerous remote test sensors and indicators in elevator pits, hard-to-get-to spaces and rooms and other places. Laro ran 24 circuits of visual strobes and a 32-zone graphic annunciator, as well.
The Fire-Lite Alarms system communicates all alarms, troubles and supervisory issues to a central monitoring station while simultaneously reporting those same signals to stadium officials via email. For convenient updates on the system's status, including alarms, Capitol Alarm installed a remote annunciator in the stadium's front entryway.
"They've got a system they can depend on, a system that notifies them about any problems before the authorities call them and ask them to come down," said Laro.
The new fire alarm system has been protecting the Northeast Delta Dental Stadium for nearly two months, without any issues. That's a vast improvement from the old system, which was having technological troubles on a weekly basis, said Laro.
"They've almost forgotten about it now," said Laro. "It was a seamless transition."
