The I.I.S. Remote Fire Watch System, visually detects the presence of flame or smoke at its source, independent of airflow in the area. RFW represents a critical advantage for early warning fire detection, especially for challenging environments and open area venues.
Flame and Smoke Detection Video Management Software
Security Center our Video Management Software of choice is a state-of-the-art monitoring, investigative and administrative tool that records and stores the camera video. The software makes it easy to search and playback events stored in the video archives for forensic analysis of the events leading up to the fire.
The VMS software can seamlessly access mutiple video cameras and Network Video Servers over an enterprise-wide network or the Internet. This allows the user to check the current status of multiple cameras from anywhere in the world. The VMS software can be installed on a Windows based PC workstation that meets or exceeds the following specifications.
Each time a fire, smoke and/or motion event is detected by one of the video smoke detection cameras, VMS automatically switches to live feed of the event — showing real-time footage with an audio description of alarm and location. The situational awareness provided by VMS means on-site personnel do not have to constantly monitor the video to know when a fire happens, and it provides instantaneous, relevant information to determine the appropriate course of action.
Statistics show 23% of all non-residential fires are arsons, requiring serious forensic investigations. Traditionally, fire investigators recreate the events that led to a fire by painstakingly collecting the evidence at the scene. VMS can reduce this process from weeks to just a few hours, through review of all video recordings prior to the event. Depending on the size of storage used,VMS allows investigators to view events hours, days and even weeks before the event.
SECURITY – PEACE OF MIND
VMS combines physical security and early warning fire and smoke detection — expanding the functionality of a video security system to protect the assets from accidental as well as intentional fires.
