Fire Systems meet Wireless Fire alarm Manufacturer Hyfire at Firex 2012

The Hyfire range of wireless fire alarm equipment has provided fire alarm companies with a true alternative since 2007.

Like with any new brand it took time for Hyfire to establish itself against the two main manufacturers at that time EMS and Electro Detectors. However, Hyfire which is marketed and distributed by Sterling Safety Systems attends shows such as Firex South to meet potential new customers and to explain the radio technology within the Hyfire range of equipment.

Over the years, wireless fire alarm had earned itself a reputation for being unreliable and expensive. The expense was due to the amount of money that had to be applied to the research and development of the equipment. The aim was to make wireless fire alarms as reliable as a wired fire alarm system.

However, it was not just the equipment that needed to be improved, but the fire alarm companies that were attempting to install wireless systems. Many companies presumed that installing a wireless system was the same as a wired system; however, many poorly designed systems were installed and this added to the poor reputation gain by the wireless fire alarm market.

For this reason, Fire Systems Ltd appreciated that radio technology was the future of fire alarm systems and back in 2007 began to specialise in wireless fire alarm systems.

Over the last 5 years with the huge advancement in radio technology, wireless fire alarms are now considered a reliable and cost effective alternative. Furthermore, wireless systems are now part of the British Standard BS5839-1 and have their own product code for the equipment EN54-25. For this reason, wireless fire alarms are now taking market share from wired systems. The Hyfire range has been a big factor in this regard.

We make sure we visit as many wireless fire alarm manufacturers at events such as Firex. In the video above, Mark Stubbs of Hyfire provides us with a summary of the operation of the Hyfire wireless fire alarm system.

Fire Systems Ltd, is an approved Hyfire agent and have installed many Hyfire systems. If you require advice, design or an installation of a wireless fire alarm contact our office.
