Dial One Security installs, services, tests, and monitors Fire Alarm Systems for residential, commercial, and industrial customers. We offer monitoring and supervision of sprinkler systems, as well as state inspections. We are also able to test smoke detector sensitivity.
Commercial Fire Control Panels
Dial One Security offers a wide variety of fire alarm panels for simple 4 zone panels to large addressable systems.
The fire alarm system control panel is your hub for controlling your entire fire system. The fire alarm panel is capable of detecting smoke, heat and water flow from sprinkler systems, and other equipment.
Property owners (households and offices) invest a lot more in fire security and prevention than in thievery.
Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Smoke Detectors operate either by optical photoelectric detection or by physical ionization detection, while some detectors use both technologies. Photoelectric detectors are more responsive to slow smoldering fires and ionization detectors are better at detecting flaming fires. Heat sensors can also be integrated into the detector to monitor the rate of temperature rise to detect fires faster. Carbon Monoxide detection can also be integrated into the Smoke Detector or installed as a separate device to monitor the air for this odorless and deadly gas.
A Horn Strobe is comprised of two important fire alarm notification components, a horn which emits a loud sound to help the visually-impaired and a strobe to help the hearing-impaired evacuate a building in the event of a fire alarm activation. The strobe is typically a clear white light that flashes 60 times per minute while the horn can be various tones and loudness to satisfy the local building code.
Synchronized strobes are used when more than one strobe can be directly seen from one location. By synchronizing the strobes, all strobes that are visible together inside of the building so that they are synchronized and flash together to prevent a photosensitive epileptic from having a seizure from a flash rate that is faster than one flash a second. Interior strobes that are visible from outside of a building do not need to be synchronized, such as strobes on different floors that are not connected by a common space such as an atrium.
Pull stations are used for manual activation of a fire alarm and are typically wall mounted. Most pull stations are activated by pulling the handle down to complete the electrical circuit and lock the handle in the activated position. Some pull stations require two actions by the user in order to activate the alarm to help prevent false alarms. By activating the Pull Station the alarm is sent to the Fire Panel where the alarm is communicated to the fire department.
