Siemens has launched Fire Safety Digital Services, a portfolio of digital and managed services which connects fire safety systems to the cloud, enabling businesses to move from a reactive, compliance-led approach to total protection through intelligent safety
By embracing digital services in operation, event-handling and maintenance, customers can improve hazard identification and prevention, make better risk-control decisions, protect business continuity, and provide a safe environment for people and assets.
“It’s important to remember that with fire systems, compliance does not necessarily equal safety,” said Brad Haeberle, senior vice president, Services, Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “With digital services for fire safety we can go beyond simply meeting fire system regulations, by using data and intelligently-applied analytics to fully protect people and assets. Developing smarter protection systems through cloud connectivity reduces the burden on people, eliminates unnecessary interruptions and gives businesses much-needed transparency over their processes, for smoother operation and system availability.”
With a combination of on-site and abovesite services, the new portfolio delivers remote diagnosis and services for automatic data capture, analysis and disturbance-free testing. Continuous monitoring of detector soiling levels ensures that all fire detectors are working correctly, preventing environmental and other external risk factors from compromising the performance of fire safety systems. As part of the portfolio, the Sinteso Connect App has permanent cloud connectivity and allows users to access fire safety assets, check on live incidents and receive push notifications from their connected sites. Disturbance-Free Testing (DFT) provides regular, frequent and automated functional testing of all DFT-enabled peripherals in the fire system.
