Provides a reoccurring time window during which fire alarm systems can be tested with signal received will be logged (the physical aspect of carrying out the test on site would still need to take place.)

  • Ten minutes after the automatic test window expires the software forwards an email detailing any signals (or lack of which may then highlight in a possible fault/communications issue) received to one or numerous pre-planned email addresses
  • If any genuine cause for the brigade to attend arises during the fire test window, we can be instantly notified (this is the same under the current procedure).  And if the site needs to carry out a test/maintenance outside of the scheduled window, then it’s simply a case of calling the receiving centre.
