Interfacing fire alarm systems in malls


Argues that with a tighter focus on informed specification, fire alarm systems can be more cost-efficiently integrated in shopping malls. Describes how effective interfacing of smart products with local distributed intelligence can meet the individual needs of both landlord and tenant. Demonstrates how reduced loop loading, simplified programming and the minimising of unwanted alarms are some of the benefits accruing from a considered re-evaluation of the shopping mall's fire systems integration at the landlord/tenant interface.
