IoT Basics for Fire Suppression Systems

January 4, 2022
Understanding the impact of connectivity, data collection & monitoring for fire suppression systems.

Data collection and the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming an increasingly common place part of everyday life. Everything from consumer products to complex manufacturing equipment now utilize a combination of these technologies to improve reliability, safety, and efficiency. These technologies, when properly implemented, can hold considerable value for the fire suppression industry.

Remote connectivity allows data to be shared across systems so that the overall system health can easily be monitored both on site and remotely. This is an increasingly crucial necessity in an era where fewer employees are consistently on site. Leveraging these technologies allows for easier predictive maintenance—detecting very minor issues so that maintenance technicians can correct them before the system is significantly impacted. This capability helps to ensure and even improve business continuity by minimizing the risk of system failure. Using data collection and remote connectivity to monitor fire suppression systems remotely can create the safest, most reliable system possible.

This webinar covers basic information about connectivity, data collection, and monitoring, including examples of use cases to highlight the value of data collection and monitoring for key segments of the fire suppression industry. Gain a greater understanding of how on-site and remote monitoring of fire suppression systems in critical infrastructure will improve operations and add value to every segment of the industry, with specific benefits to OEMs, building owners, installers, facility managers, maintenance technicians, and end users.
