Very different to an intruder alarm, a fire alarm is a device that senses smoke, heat or flame and alerts occupants of the building by sounding an audible signal. It can be battery-powered or hardwired into the building’s electrical system.

Having a working and regularly serviced fire alarm is one of the most effective ways to protect your premises and staff from fires. At OHEAP our qualified and accredited engineers will design, install, test and service the best fire alarm systems for your premises.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Conventional Fire Alarm?

Conventional fire alarm systems are a popular choice for small to mid-sized facilities that do not require advanced features, such as addressability. A conventional fire alarm system utilises hard wiring to connect each initiating device to the control panel.

The main advantage of conventional systems over addressable ones is cost. Conventional systems can be installed at a much lower cost than their addressable counterparts.

What Is An Addressable Fire Alarm?

An addressable fire alarm system is a type of fire detection system that can be programmed to recognise specific devices within the network. This allows for quicker responses and more efficient troubleshooting.

Addressable systems typically consist of a central control panel and individual devices that are connected together by wire or wireless technology. Each individual device has its own unique address, making it easier to identify the exact device that has been activated in the event of an emergency.

The primary advantage of an addressable fire alarm system over conventional systems is that it makes it easier to pinpoint where the issue occurred in case of emergency situations, especially if multiple devices have been activated at once or if one device fails repeatedly.

What Is A Wireless Fire Alarm?

A wireless fire alarm is a type of smoke detector that uses RF radio waves to send messages from one alarm to another. These devices are often used in commercial buildings where wiring is more difficult or may affect building structure. When a wireless fire alarm detects smoke or heat, it sends a message over the radio frequency so that other nearby devices can be alerted as well. This allows the alarms to work together to give you more coverage than traditional wired devices alone would provide.
