Honeywell Security & Communications
Honeywell Security Group introduces new mobile apps for its popular LYNX Touch 5100 self-contained security system. The new L5100 Connect iOS app allows homeowners to control the system anywhere on premises within their Wi-Fi coverage areas on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The app provides local control of the security system, and if so equipped, control of Z-Wave enabled lights, locks, thermostats and more. This approach helps homeowners save money on energy and utility bills, conserve resources and live a more comfortable, efficient lifestyle.
Gamewell-FCI by Honeywell has introduced the S3 Series fire alarm control panel that features an intuitive touch screen display. The product can be used as a standalone system or as part of an extensive network serving the fire protection and emergency communication needs of an individual building or a multi-building campus. The touch screen device has three main functions, including: system status, event details and service mode.
The DTK-120SRD Critical Load surge protective device from DITEK provides 120V, 20A surge protection for life safety equipment, such as an alarm panel circuit. The device also features dry contacts for remote notification of surge protection status, a set of contacts for alarm supervision and more. The multi-stage, hybrid design provides filtering and lower clamp levels. In addition, the device meets governmental and military specifications for fire panel applications.

NOTIFIER by Honeywell has released the First Command emergency communication system (ECS), which interfaces with any existing commercial fire alarm to provide pre-recorded emergency messages and alerts. The system can help small, standalone facilities be assured they have an emergency communication system that is not only reliable, but also economical. Users can pre-record both general and emergency messages to then be broadcasted live in the event of an emergency. Each system can support up to 8 remote control panels and microphone consoles and as many as 14 pre-recorded messages can be used for any one facility.

Silent Night by Honeywell introduces the Farenhyt IDP-FIRE-CO detector, a device that uses four different sensors to detect fire and carbon monoxide and eliminates the need for two separate units. The detector uses a B200S sounder base to emit customized tones that differentiate between a fire and CO in the air. The four different sensors look for smoke, CO, light/flames and heat to accurately identify an event. In addition, the device has a nuisance alarm rejection capability that can serve well in areas that have burnt food, shower steam, frequent temperature changes and more.
• Meet both fire and carbon monoxide (CO) code requirements with a single, addressable device.
• The Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector (AMCF/CO) combines award-winning fire and CO protection using only four wires and one footprint for the most advanced, cost-effective and attractive detection solution available.
• For fire, the detector combines four, separate, sensing elements in one unit (smoke, CO, light/flame and heat) to sense multiple components of a fire.
• Enhanced sensitivity to real fire with heightened immunity to nuisance particulate.
• For CO, the detector’s electrochemical sensing cell creates a separate signal for life safety CO detection.
• The AMCF/CO works with the System Sensor B200S intelligent sounder base to provide both Temp 3 and Temp 4 signals for fire and CO. The B200S can be synchronized with System Sensor AV devices and used as part of the evacuation signal.
Gentex Corporation has released a combination photoelectric smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm with two sets of Form A/Form C relay contacts activating independently for smoke and CO events. The GN-503FF utilizes photoelectric and electrochemical sensing technology performance wherever smoke and CO detection is required. The GN-503FF is a 120VAC, hard wired alarm with 9VDC battery back-up and includes tandem interconnect capabilities, differentiating signals for each alarm type annunciation, quick disconnect wire harness, low or missing battery indicator and push button self and functionality test.
• System Sensor has launched its new i4 Series Combination CO/Smoke Detector and Integration Module.
• Able to integrate the i4 into conventional security and fire panels, System Sensor customers can rest assured knowing they are providing the most comprehensive life safety solution for homeowners to date.
• First low-voltage, system-connected, combination smoke/carbon monoxide detection solution on the market.
• Ability to integrate into conventional security and fire panels.
• Reduces parts and labor required for installation by combining into a single device.
The i4 Series Combination Carbon Monoxide (CO)/Smoke Detector and Interface Module is a system-connected, combination solution for conventional fire systems. The system includes a 12/24-volt, combination electrochemical CO/photoelectric smoke detector and a module that interfaces with a panel. The unit sends distinct smoke or CO alerts to the panel while sounding the appropriate Temporal 3 or Temporal 4 signal. Users can easily replace the unit’s CO cell at its end-of-life without tools.
Safety Technology International Inc.
STI’s multifunction door alarm helps prevent unauthorized exits and entries of fire/emergency doors. Exit Stopper alerts if a protected door is opened by emitting a 95/105dB alarm for 30 seconds, three minutes or continuously. Annunciation mode announces door entry with a set of 10 beeps and resets. The credential can be securely embedded on NFC smartphones for physical access control, PC logon, biometrics and a wide range of additional applications. The alarm can serve as an inexpensive security device and help stop theft. It is available in supervised wireless.
