Safety is a condition of being safe from undergoing or causing hurt, injury, or loss. There are several types of security such as vehicle safety, safety in the workplace and the most important is home safety. One of the safety issues that need to be concerned of is the fire occurrence at home. Based on the statistics of accidents caused by fire in the house, the number of deaths is increasing as show in Figure 1.1 . This is due to the lack of supervision by parents, especially towards the children's safety at home.
· False alarm reduction features (CP-01)
“Smash-and-grab”* is a typical term used in security risk found in All-In-One integrated wireless securitysystem or self-contained securitysystem. If a criminal breaks in and hears a beeping “keypad” right next to the door, they very easily could destroy the device. All of these instances would leave your location vulnerable as the panel has been defeated before it could send out the alarm signal to the central alarm monitoring station.
communication between remotely located command centers in larger buildings. A smoke evacuation system provided and installed by the mechanical contractor for smoke extraction may require an interface control module to turn that system on and off and allow for testing. This may not be mentioned in the electrical (E) drawings but only in the mechanical (M) drawings. The elevators in a building also require emergency over-ride control by the firealarmsystem. The elevators are recalled to the ground floor in the event of an alarm condition, for use by emergency personnel. Part of this system must include smoke detectors in the elevator lobbies at each floor to keep from opening the doors of an elevator into an area filled with smoke or fire. The elevators may be recalled to an alternate lower floor depending on the location and nature of the alarm. There are also smoke and heat detectors required at the top and bottom of the elevator shafts that may not be shown on the drawing. Another common engineering oversight is a smoke detector above the firealarm panel itself. If access to the building is limited by a securitysystem, this has to be overridden in an alarm condition. This may require a firealarm interface or a device known as a Knox Box.
Advantages for designers
CSP firealarm control panels were designed in order to make designers’ and the system installers’ work easier. Aesthetic control panel allows installing the switchboard even in a place where it will be exposed without a fear of disturbance of the inside design harmony. An interesting option might be to use the remote repeaters that allow for full system operation, for instance in the security centre of the building, remote from the physical control panel location. An additional asset of CSP switchboards is a virtual panel, which allows to check remotely the fire signalling alarmsystem state from any place in the world with use of INTERNET network. Besides this, CSP control panels implement correlation of A and B zones in accordance with a standard, which reduce the chances false alarms, even when installed in harsh environment. Moreover, enhanced configurability of programmable inputs and outputs allows for cooperation of CSP system with other security systems in a build- ing – I&HAS, access control or fire fighting devices.
The NX smoke alarm/detector is a Learn Mode wireless sensor that uses photoelectric technology with a self-contained alarm siren, a low-battery annunciator and a status LED. The smoke alarm/detector is part of a security/firealarmsystem and communicates with the system control panel.
For the PFD calculation, the following data or parameters of input element, logic unit and final element are required: the functional test interval, the dangerous undetectable failure rate, beta factor for failure and the correction factors used in PDS method (Reference to PDS meothod handbook). For our system, the logic unit is so reliable, so we assume it will not fail, thus the relevant data concerning logic unit is omitted. The final element in this system include the sound alarm in the building and the signal transmitting system to the security department, however, we take them as one element with a single failure rate for the sake of simplicity.
C. The GUI based software must be capable of graphically representing each facility being monitored with floor plans and icons depicting the actual locations of the various

Redundant TLON Network
Up to 30 EBL512 G3 control units can be connected to a TLON Network. One of the units can be an external PC with a software driver for a Security Management system, which gives full control of and access to all data in all EBL512 G3 control units connected in the network.

FIRE PROCEDURE & ALARMSYSTEM
If you work at Riddle and you don't know the procedure in case of fire, PLEASE ask your supervisor to fill you in on what your particular job would be. We have a lot of lives in our charge and it's important to know exactly what to do.
FireAlarmSystem Submissions for permit will fall under one of two categories: new installations or remodels.
New installations or remodels of significant impact will require a full Submission for review. Remodels of limited scope, remodels of relatively minor impact and tenant finishes may be submitted in the form of a “Scope of Work” application. If you are unsure about your project, you may call us to discuss the project.
disconnecting wiring. Signals shall be provided to indicate by individual addressable device any alarm, supervisory or trouble condition on the system. Each initiating circuit shall be powered and supervised so that a signal on one device does not prevent the receipt of signals from other devices. Loss of power, including any or all batteries, shall not require the reloading of a program from any source. Upon restoration of power, start-up shall be immediate, automatic, and shall not require any manual operation. The loss of primary power or the sequence of applying primary or emergency power shall not affect the transmission of alarm, supervisory or trouble signals. Enclosures shall be provided with ample gutter space to allow proper clearance between the enclosure and live parts of the panel equipment.

FireAlarm Monitoring System
The City of Crystal Lake, in partnership with Fox Valley Fire and Safety Fire, will be
implementing a new FireAlarm Monitoring System for all properties within the City that are currently required to have a firealarmsystem. The new system replaces outdated equipment installed and maintained by ADT. The old system required the use of an AT&T telephone circuit line to transmit alarm signals from a property owner’s firealarm panel to alarm monitoring equipment panel located in the City’s emergency dispatch center. The new alarm monitoring equipment will allow alarm signals to be sent via radio frequencies versus telephone lines.
They alert building occupants to a fire condition and the need to evacuate.
Another common function is the transmission of an alarm notification signal to the fire department or other emergency response organization. Firealarm systems may also shut down electrical, air handling equipment
System Back in Service-Notification to Fire Department Date:_______________ Time:_________
PERSONS ASSIGNED TO FIRE WATCH DUTIES SHALL FOLLOW THE REQUIREMENTS LISTED ON THE FIRE WATCH DUTIES SHEET AND SHALL PATROL ALL UNPROTECTEED AREAS OF THE BUILDING EVERY HOUR TO CHECK FOR SIGNS OF FIRE OR SMOKE CONDITIONS. ALL PATROLS ARE TO BE RECORDED ON THE LOG REPORT IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING EACH ROUND. RECORDS OF FIRE WATCH SHALL BE KEPT FOR 2 YEARS AFTER THEY ARE MADE, AND SHALL BE MADE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST TO THE CHIEF FIRE OFFICAL.
Six Reasons To Test & Inspect Your FireAlarm Systems Regularly:
Lives are at stake! Your firealarmsystem will only operate properly if it is maintained and some impairments will not be obvious without testing!
To meet the requirements of your local building department, fire inspectors, and even your insurance carrier.
