In buildings with several residential units, the best safety level is achieved by employing a common fire alarm system that covers all apartments and common areas so that all residents are notified in the event of a fire.
Unwanted alarms in such installations will cause unnecessary disturbances for all residents. Naturally, this is unpleasant, and may over time lessen the trust in the alarm system. If alarms are transmitted directly to the fire brigade, the housing cooperative could also accumulate large costs paying for unnecessary emergency responses.
The Elotec solution
A pre-warning with the possibility of local silencing prevents cooking fumes and such from triggering a full alarm with subsequent evacuation and response from the fire brigade.
One simple press of the Elotecniq button in the apartment stops unwanted alarms, and provides time to air out the room. If smoke is still present when this period has passed, the local warning will start again.
To ensure that other residents are warned in the event of a real fire, the alarm can only be stopped three times in a row, and only alarms originating in your own apartment.
The device is available for both wired and wireless systems.
