Book Description

Fire detection and fire alarm systems protect lives and property by detecting and warning of fire. To be effective such warnings should be both reliable and timely. Recent developments in sensor and electronic technologies have led to great advances and innovations that have improved the performance of these systems. This Digest reviews the technologies and state-of-the-art products that have emerged, underlines the importance of using approved products and systems to ensure that they operate reliably and do not generate false alarms, and takes a brief look into their future.
