New cloud-based solution launched to provide connectivity and visibility to fire safety systems
Honeywell has launched the first tools from its new suite of Connected Life Safety Services (CLSS), its first all-in-one cloud platform for fire safety systems.
Honeywell’s CLSS suite of tools are said to enable fire technicians to minimize disruption, prove compliance and reduce time needed for design, installation, commissioning, inspection, maintenance and reporting of life safety systems.
Sameer Agrawal, General manager, Global Fire Software and Services at Honeywell, said: “Today’s global environment requires the fire and life safety industry to innovate with solutions that enable facility managers and system integrators to monitor their systems and diagnose issues anytime, from anywhere.
“Many facilities are working to create healthier environments and even limiting occupant density to comply with social distancing. With CLSS, we help system integrators provide their customers with the highest level of safety and service and work more efficiently by giving them insight into the system problem before they even get to the site.”
Honeywell says that, in today’s environment, organisations across the fire safety value chain face multiple challenges:
- Achieving more with fewer resources – many facility maintenance teams are working with reduced staff;
- Managing challenges of limited access to facilities due to shutdowns;
- Dealing effectively with safety incidents, where risks remain the same at any occupancy level.
It’s CLSS platform is said to address these challenges by enabling systems integrators and facilities management firms to access the data within a fire system from anywhere, without necessarily being physically be at the control panel.
There is no general legal requirement for sprinkler systems to be installed in a place of work but there may be circumstances where sprinklers are required.
