  • 00:05:00 In this section, the speaker discusses Honeywell's wireless fire detection system, emphasizing that each brand will have its own wireless fire detection devices that are compatible with specific panels. The system is compatible with various panels such as Onix Fire, Garden Fire, Life Silent, Night Jungle, and Fahrenheit, offering easy installation and maintenance with short installation times. The wireless solution is especially ideal for projects that require quick execution and compliance with international standards. The system operates on a frequency band of 900 to 928 MHz and offers opportunities for new businesses. The solution includes devices such as manual stations, audible and visual notification devices, synchronization modules for hybrid fire detection systems, and various types of smoke and temperature detectors. These devices require four batteries for operation, with Panasonic and Duracell batteries being recommended for optimal performance.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the battery life and replacement requirements for Honeywell's wireless fire detection system. They mention that while they cannot guarantee the same battery life as Panasonic's batteries, their approved solution has a minimum lifespan of 2 years under normal operating conditions. The system also has the capability to indicate when the devices have low battery levels, allowing for timely replacements and preventive maintenance. Different devices in the system, such as manual stations, detectors, and control modules, work with four batteries, while notification bases require eight batteries for communication and backup functions. The battery life depends on factors like the type of device and its intensity of operation. However, the system has the ability to notify users when battery levels are low. The speaker also mentions that the notification bases integrate seamlessly with the system as addressable devices and occupy two module addresses within the loop. The section concludes by emphasizing the importance of understanding the capacity of both the wireless system and the panel it is being connected to.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the wiring options for the wireless fire detection system. They explain that the control panel is the only device that needs to be wired, and it can be done in two ways. If there are only wireless devices, the communication loop will be directly wired to the gateway. If there are a large number of wireless devices, the gateway can be wired for both the loop and power supply, using 24-volt external wiring. However, it is recommended to consider additional or external power supply for the gateway in systems with a large number of devices. The speaker then moves on to describe the wireless devices in the system, such as smoke and temperature detectors, as well as monitoring modules. Each device must have a minimum of two communication pathways. One notable advantage of the wireless solution is that each device acts as a signal repeater, increasing the coverage and signal strength as more devices are added. The speaker also mentions that the mesh communication structure is automatically established, with devices identifying and connecting with each other. If there is a communication issue, they will automatically search for alternative pathways to maintain communication with the control panel. This mesh communication is compared to a wired solution, where the loss of a single cable may result in the loss of communication. The speaker concludes by mentioning the capacity of each gateway to support up to 50 wireless devices, including itself.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, the speaker explains the wireless capabilities of Honeywell's fire detection system. The system can support up to 49 additional wireless devices, such as detectors, modules, manual stations, or wireless bases. However, it is important to consider the capacity of the communication loop to which the gateway will be connected. For instance, if a panel has a single communication loop with a capacity of 159 detectors and 159 modules, it can support a gateway with 49 detectors. If more than 49 wireless devices are needed, up to 4 gateways can be overlapped, but there is a limit of 3 gateways per loop. The speaker mentions that they are currently working on firmware updates to increase the number of gateways and meet specific requirements. The wireless fire detection system is useful in applications where wiring is difficult or impossible, in historically or visually sensitive locations, in restricted or hazardous areas, and in temporary or remodeling constructions. This technology provides a solution for quick installation and compliance with local and international fire protection standards.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the advantages of Honeywell's wireless fire detection solution compared to traditional wired systems. They explain that the wireless solution allows for shorter installation times and reduces installation costs, as it eliminates the need for infrastructure materials such as pipes and wiring. With wireless devices, only a few installers are required, and they can install around 100 devices in half a day compared to a much smaller number with wired systems. This significantly reduces installation time and administrative expenses. The speaker also mentions that wireless solutions are ideal for remodeling projects where existing wired systems may need to be expanded or modified without the hassle of extensive rewiring. Overall, the wireless fire detection solution offers a more efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional wired systems.

The system aims to minimize execution time and investments while increasing coverage and maintaining functional detection systems that can detect, notify, and enable evacuation. The devices in the system come with batteries, and their levels can be monitored using the Suite Tools software. The solution is certified by various standards, including UL, FM, and the New York Fire Department. The speaker emphasizes that the potential of the wireless system lies in the user's imagination and technical requirements. To ensure proper installation, site inspections are necessary to test for radiofrequency interference in the specified frequency range. The speaker highlights that the testing and verification of communication quality between devices are vital. Overall, Honeywell's wireless fire detection system provides flexibility and ease of installation in various settings.
  • 00:35:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the configuration of wireless mesh networks in a fire detection system. They explain that multiple gateways can be used, with up to four gateways overlapping and a maximum of three gateways in a loop. The configuration involves assigning each wireless device to a specific gateway for communication. They mention that the wireless solution becomes a subsystem of the fire alarm panel, with separate configurations done in the swift tools software and the fire alarm panel. The speaker also introduces the key component, a mini antenna, and mentions that the swift tools software allows for diagnostics, system checks, and battery level monitoring. They explain that the software can identify devices, display battery levels, and assist with maintenance and system restructuring. The speaker briefly mentions the possibility of adding more devices to the network and performing system restructuring. Although there were technical issues with the slides, they mention that graphs and visualizations are available in the swift tools software to monitor network quality and intensity.
  • 00:40:00 In this section, the speaker discusses the wireless communication in the Honeywell fire detection system. They explain that to test the communication between devices, a trial can be conducted on-site using around 4 or 5 wireless devices. There is a procedure provided by the team that outlines the steps to follow, including conducting communication quality tests and inspecting the frequency range for interference. The speaker also highlights the advantage of having 34 communication channels available, as the devices automatically switch to an open channel if interference is detected. The on-site test, which takes approximately an hour and a half, provides precise data on signal intensity and potential interference. They mention that by obtaining a clear communication diagram, it is possible to identify which devices are communicating with each other and assess the system's robustness. The speaker assures that this testing method guarantees the reliability and effectiveness of the solution. Additionally, they mention that if there are communication issues, additional devices can be added as signal repeaters to improve communication.
