Another Great ISC West! - by Elizabeth Richards, Honeywell Fire Systems   

This 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!

Over 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.

Fire-Lite Alarms and Honeywell Power premiered “Innovation for a Connected World” which includes new solutions combining your Fire alarm system and Emergency Communications System.

In case you missed this great show, here’s a recap of our “Innovation for a Connected World”:

SWIFT™ Wireless Fire Alarm Devices
Introducing 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 2014!

Remote Telephone Zone Module for the Emergency Command Center
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”.

IPGSM-4G – Fire Communications Made Simple
Stay 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!

AC/DC Video Power
Our Video power distribution units provide a constant source of power to operate CCTV video cameras 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.

Traffic through the Fire-Lite Alarms and Honeywell Power booth stayed steady throughout the show. We even had a kiosk that allowed people to register for any of our upcoming Fire-Lite training academies. If you’ve never attended an ISC West Show and your business relates to security and/or fire, don’t miss next year’s show at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas, April 15-17. Thanks for stopping by!
