Commercial Fire Alarm Monitoring

A functional fire alarm system can save lives, which is its most significant role, but it can also save your business. Let’s say your building is unattended at night, and a fire breaks out. How will you alert the authorities to put out the fire? Pyrotex Systems fire alarm monitoring ensures that our dedicated receiving center receives an alert whenever your fire alarm is activated. We can then notify the local dispatch of the emergency.

How Monitored Fire Alarm Systems Work

Ideally, there is no time to waste when a fire breaks out. A fire can spread rapidly and cause immense damage within a short time. A monitored fire alarm system does not depend on the people who may be in the building or someone passing to make the fire known to the responsible authorities. Pyrotex fire alarm monitoring service is alert for 24 hours every day of the week and will notify the local fire dispatcher immediately if fire breaks out.

When a fire breaks out, your fire alarm in the building will activate. The alarm sends a signal via a landline or cellular dialer, and the Pyrotex Systems monitoring center receives the signal. Immediately after our monitoring center receives the signal, we notify the local fire authorities and the building’s key holders about the fire alarm. The fire department will arrive at the facility to address the alarm.

An advantage of the monitored fire alarm system is that you can use auxiliary power as back up. In case of power failure, the cellular line will still be functional for easy communication with the monitoring center. Additionally, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) updated codes provide that building owners have to ensure the connection of at least two communication lines to the monitoring system. One line has to be connected to a traditional phone cable, and they have to connect the other one to a managed facilities-based network. It is a safety measure to ensure that the monitoring center will still receive signals if one line goes down.


Cellular Systems

Pyrotex Systems acknowledges the advancement in technology, and we conduct cellular monitoring of fire alarm systems. It means that our monitoring center receives the signals from a fire alarm through cell towers and not phone lines. As such, we ensure 24-hour monitoring of your system every day, ensuring your buildings’ safety every time. We understand that every second is critical in case of a fire outbreak.
