NORTHFORD, Conn., April 24, 2013 – Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell (NYSE:HON) introduces the Emergency Command Center (ECC), a mass notification system capable of integrating with virtually every brand of fire alarm to serve as a fully-supervised system for delivering critical messages. Taking its established line of voice evacuation systems to another level, Fire-Lite Alarms has created the ECC to seamlessly interface with other life safety systems while carrying forward its consistent qualities of easy installation, maintenance and operation. The ECC offers a high degree of scalability and configuration that enable dealers to easily customize it to the communication needs of any standalone building.

The ECC is one system with a variety of interchangeable components that make it easy for installers, particularly fire alarm dealers, to meet a broad range of facilities’ emergency communication needs.

“Fire alarm dealers and integrators are used to working in the life safety market, which is code-driven, so for them, emergency communications is a natural progression,” says Stacy Deveraux, marketing director, Fire-Lite Alarms. “There’s not a big learning curve. The ECC is one system with a wide variety of options for various consoles, which allow you to tailor the system for a wide range of end users.”

Fire-Lite Alarms ECC is the first non-proprietary emergency communications system listed to the actual standard, not the draft, of Underwriter’s Laboratories’ (UL) 2572, which mandates equipment testing and performance standards for mass notification systems. The ECC also meets the emergency communications requirements set forth by NFPA 72 and UL 864 for commercial facilities, as well as the Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) 4-021-01 document for mass notification systems on military bases and other Department of Defense properties.

The ECC can support any combination of up to eight operator consoles, which can be placed throughout a building to offer authorized users easy access to send emergency notifications. Taking real-life situations into consideration, such as tornadoes and intruder alerts, Fire-Lite Alarms designed the ECC to offer the unique capability of sending emergency communications through the system via a landline or cellular phone.

“If you can’t safely get to a panel because you’re under a desk or in a basement, you can call into the system from any phone to deliver a live voice message,” says Deveraux.

As many as 14 voice messages can be customized to the general paging and emergency communications needs of any facility. By allowing a maximum of one minute per message, the ECC can support detailed instructions and bi-lingual communications. The ECC can also be used for non-emergency functions such as live paging or background music.

To support multiple audio zones and best fit facilities’ emergency communications needs, an ECC system can expand to 24 speaker circuits with 1,100 Watts of amplification power. The ECC’s combination of high power and modularity allows it to deliver the code-required levels of intelligibility needed within large-scale buildings and areas with high ambient noise, such as factories and military bases.

All Fire-Lite Alarms ECC and fire alarm systems are non-proprietary products, sold over-the-counter at security equipment distributors throughout the U.S. More comprehensive information on ECC systems and the opportunities it offers dealers to take command of new market opportunities are available at

300AE paging horn

Product From Viking Technology Inc

High Power Weather Resistant Paging Horn for Use with 8 Ohm or 25V / 70V Systems

The 300AE paging horn provides a direct voice coil connection for use with 8 ohm paging systems such as Viking models PA-2A, PA-15, HF-3W, DVA-2WA and M2W. Even though its 30 watt rating is greater than these lower power paging amplifiers provide, the 300AE is an excellent choice because it is more efficient than Viking’s smaller 25AE paging horn. In other words, the larger 300AE only needs 1 watt of power to play as loud as 2 watts being driven into the smaller 25AE paging horn.
