AlarmCalm False Alarm Management System Nominated for Tomorrow’s FM Award

09 December 2016

Advanced’s AlarmCalm false alarm management (FAM) system has been nominated for the Tomorrow’s FM Awards 2017.

“We’re delighted to be nominated for this award by Tomorrow’s FM,” commented Aston Bowles, Advanced’s Marketing Manager.

“False alarms are one of the big issues currently faced by fire and facilities professionals. It was in response to this global problem that we developed AlarmCalm, which we believe is the most powerful and complete FAM solution available.”

AlarmCalm is a total package and features enhanced firmware, comprehensive configuration software for Advanced’s fire systems and new intelligent alarm acknowledgement devices called AlarmCalm Buttons.

It provides total, easily-managed control over both automatic and manual alarm verification periods and investigation delays to outputs.

It allows a site to be divided into FAM zones called building areas (up to 200 per panel or 40,000 per network).

These are virtual areas used for FAM programming that by default match fire zones but can be set independently to cover multiple zones and points or individual points.

The use of building areas makes even complicated cause-and-effect easy to set up. There is growing awareness of the role that trained staff or residents can play in helping to reduce false alarms.

Advanced’s intelligent, loop-powered alarm acknowledgement device, the AlarmCalm Button, can be used to manually verify if an alarm signal is false, for example from smoke as a result of cooking or vapour from a shower.

It includes robust fail-safes and is being installed and specified widely.
