past ISC West marks my 10th ISCW Expo – WOW! That’s 10 years of
planning, display designs, setups/tear downs, debacles of missing parts and
pieces, and more importantly that’s 10 years of watching Fire-Lite and Honeywell
Power grow! I can’t even keep a plant
alive for more than a couple months!
the past 10 years I’ve really seen the industry progress and this year the
aisles were jammed with over 1,000 companies showing off their newest
technologies. I’m especially proud of three specific products highlighted by Fire-Lite
Alarms this year.
Alarms and Honeywell Power premiered “Innovation for a Connected World” which
includes new solutions combining your Fire alarm system and Emergency Communications
case you missed this great show, here’s a recap of our “Innovation for a
Wireless Fire Alarm Devices
our new wireless solution for commercial fire applications where it is
difficult to run wire! SWIFT™ uses the latest in Class-A mesh technology and
has a redundant path for the highest reliability. Great for retrofits, historic areas, and any
application where running wire is difficult. Coming in Summer 2014!
Your world is connected, what about your
buildings? Many multi-building applications, such as apartment buildings, are
monitored by a main panel for centralized communications. Lite-Connect will
save on phone lines and monitoring costs by connecting a main panel to panels
in a remote building. Coming in Summer
Telephone Zone Module for the Emergency
Communications is about getting the right message to the right people at the
right time. The RTZM (Remote Telephone Zone Module) gives an authorized end
user access to the ECC during an emergency using any telephone. By adding the
RTZM module to any ECC system, users have the ability to initiate pre-recorded
messages or even make a live page. Even with this phone! (insert picture
of phone booth)
Not only were these premiered at ISC West, but our other solutions
kept in the theme of a “connected world”.
– Fire Communications Made Simple
connected without the cost of POTS lines by installing the IPGSM-4G in your
building. This multi-path fire alarm communicator
gives you faster and more reliable connectivity. It also saves recurring telecommunications
costs when dedicated phone lines are replaced, making the IPGSM-4G a product
that truly pays for itself!
Video power distribution units provide a constant source of power to operate
and other accessories. AC and DC Video power distribution units are mounted in
a sturdy back box and include, LED indicators and short circuit protection.

the show. We even had a kiosk that allowed people to register for any of our
upcoming Fire-Lite training
If you’ve never attended an ISC West Show and your business relates

Center in Las Vegas, April 15-17. Thanks for stopping by!
