Fire Alarm Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a Fire Alarm?

    A Fire Alarm system is designed to detect and alert people to the presence of a fire in a building. It typically consists of smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual call point stations, and an audible alarm.

  • How does a Fire Alarm work?

    A Fire Alarm system works by detecting smoke or heat and then sounding an alarm to alert people of the fire. Smoke detectors use a sensor to detect smoke particles in the air, while heat detectors use a sensor to detect an increase in temperature.

  • Can my Fire Alarm system be monitored?

    If we already monitor your Burglar Alarm system, we may be able to link your Fire Alarm so that in the event of an activation, keyholders will be called and the Fire Brigade. For total compliance with Fire Alarm Monitoring standards; a separate signalling device needs to be installed inside your Fire Alarm panel. ‘Redcare Fire’ is specially developed for monitoring fire alarm systems but uses the same communication technology as Redcare Secure so in the event of an activation, a signal will reach our receiving centre in seconds.

  • How do I maintain my Fire Alarm system?

    Proper maintenance of a Fire Alarm system includes regular testing, cleaning of the detectors and other components, and ensuring that the batteries are charged and in good condition. It is also important to keep the system updated with the latest software, and to replace any damaged or malfunctioning components as needed. At TI Security we offer maintenance where we ensure your Fire Alarm system is up to date and working effectively.
