Life Critical Safety
Smart building technologies and intelligent building controls have revolutionised the way we manage our buildings, improving safety and security for building occupants. The benefits of intelligent building controls include improved life critical safety, enhanced building management and maintenance, and improved sustainability.
Here are some of the ways we’ve been helping property managers improve the safety of their buildings’ occupants for over a decade.
Fire Detection and Suppression
One of the most critical safety systems in any building is the fire detection and suppression system. With smart building technologies, fire detection and suppression systems can be monitored in real-time and automatically activated in the event of a fire. This means that occupants are alerted to a potential fire more quickly, and the fire suppression system can be activated more rapidly, reducing the risk of fire-related injuries or fatalities.
Access control systems play a vital role in ensuring the safety of building occupants. With smart building technologies, access control systems can be integrated with other building systems, such as video surveillance and fire detection systems, to provide a comprehensive security solution. This integration allows building managers to monitor and control access to the building in real-time, reducing the risk of unauthorised entry or intrusion.
In the event of an emergency, such as a fire, it is critical that building occupants can evacuate quickly and safely. We deliver integrated intelligent building technologies, where emergency evacuation systems work with other building systems, such as fire detection systems and access control systems. This provides a much more comprehensive emergency evacuation solution. Our integration allows building managers to monitor and control the evacuation process in real-time, reducing the risk of injury or fatalities during an emergency.
Our connected building technologies can also improve sustainability in a building. For example, energy-efficient lighting systems, HVAC systems, and energy management systems can be integrated with smart building technologies to optimise energy use and reduce the building’s carbon footprint. This can help building managers meet their sustainability goals while also reducing operating costs and improving the overall safety of the building.
By integrating fire detection and suppression systems, access control systems, and emergency evacuation systems, building managers can improve the safety of their building and ensure that occupants can evacuate quickly and safely in the event of an emergency.
