Conventional fire alarm systems
As the name suggests, conventional fire alarm systems are the first types of fire alarms. The chipset associated with classic fire alarms is more straightforward than the modern ones. Because of this, conventional fire alarm systems are a cheaper option, but they require more wiring. This fact means it takes longer to install or repair conventional fire alarm systems.
Conventional fire alarm systems don’t come with GPS or any navigation tool, so they won’t be able to tell you the exact location of the fire. Still, if HomeReps professionals do the installation process, the fire alarm will be able to distribute your premises into different zones.
It means you can use conventional fire alarms in multiple floor buildings or vast areas with less cost and relatively straightforward arrangement. Still, we wouldn’t suggest this type of fire alarm in multi-functional buildings with complex plans.
Addressable fire alarm systems
This type of fire alarm system is a little more refined and sophisticated than classic conventional fire alarm systems. Every addressable fire alarm system has a unique address and name. This feature lets you know which device is already activated is it a detector or a call point. All of this helps you locate the fire and put out the fire much more quickly. Addressable fire alarm systems help you save money over time because all devices are connected to one loop instead of individual cables in the wiring of addressable alarm systems. This option has fewer false alarms and is more effective.
Wireless fire alarm systems
Wireless fire alarm systems are great for premises that need to take appearances into account, such as high-end retail outlets, or who are restricted from doing much with the fabric of the property, such as listed buildings.
Wireless fire alarm
s are the newest type of fire alarms and need to take appearance into different accounts like retail outlets and restricted properties. There’s no cabling in wireless alarm systems. So the installation process is so easy and quick. Wireless fire alarms are more expensive than other types of fire alarms and require the regular replacement of batteries.
However, they are suitable for old buildings anywhere there’s no space for wiring and electrical works.
Fire Alarm Testing in London by HomeReps
