Commercial Fire Alarm Systems in Hotels & Hospitality
Hotels require highly reliable, flexible and intelligent fire safety system to protect the facility. More importantly, protecting guests while not disturbing them with unnecessary alarms or system malfunctions is crucial.

Unlike traditional low-rise buildings, high –rise buildings present unique challenges when it comes to fire safety. They pose difficulty of saving and evacuation activities, and various ways through which fire spreads. Moreover, high-rise building creates a cumulative effect, thus requiring a great number of people to evacuate the building. As a result, high-rise building has garnered significant attention regarding fire safety over the years.
The Siemens FireFinder® XLSV is UL-listed for convenience paging and background music providing everyday comfort but able to be commandeered to provide emergency voice evacuation. The Siemens Cerberus ™ DMS provides state-of the-art building and life safety management stations giving a detailed view of networked systems. The system can interfact with IP vieo cameras to provide real-time, visual event confirmation.
