Digitalisation offers completely new possibilities for the management and protection of buildings.

From planning to installation to operation. Security systems in general - fire protection systems in particular - have a remarkably high potential for innovations. What are the characteristics of a future-proof fire protection? What challenges can be met?

In our whitepaper, you will learn why digital applications will make early fire detection even more reliable in the future. We demonstrate how you can optimise a fire detection system in five steps with the help of digital processes. Using specific use cases, we highlight how software-based systems can have a positive influence on fire protection.

Preventive fire protection - challenges

To ensure that future buildings are are designed, built and used correctly in terms of fire protection, the industry needs trained and experienced fire safety experts at all levels.

– Skilled worker shortage
The shortage of skilled workers can also be felt in the fire protection industry. Human resources, training and increasingly necessary skills in all areas, from planning to installation, operation and maintenance as well as modernisation are crucial competitive factors.
Sustainability Seedling
Many modern building projects are characterised by sustainability aspects and are being planned in an increasingly climate-friendly way. New building products, materials, façade greening and alternative construction methods present fire protection officers with previously unknown problems.
Flexibility and repurposing
Flexibility and repurposing
The Corona pandemic and a new work mentality have shown that a new way of thinking has taken place in many aspects. Home offices, co-working spaces and round-the-clock working hours pose new challenges for building design and fire protection engineers.
If a gymnasium becomes an event space in the evening, which building regulations apply?
Buildings must be planned in a way that they can be used flexibly without affecting the level of safety.
Networking Connectivity
– Smart Buildings and Cyber Security
The connectivity of devices and sensors for fire protection increases the level of security in the building and for the people in it.

However, this also creates risks such as the misuse of software access, DDoS attacks and cyberattacks. In order for connected fire alarm technology to meet these expectations, it must fulfil high security standards.

Five steps for a fire alarm system of the future

Step 1
Bridging the gap between
digital and analogue
Step 1
Bridging the gap between digital and analogue

To make your fire alarm system fit for the future, a bridge must be built between the fire alarm system and digital services for remote monitoring. With a suitable web application, the basis can therefore be laid for worldwide access to fire alarm control panels. This is done with a router for connection to the control centre.

To access the fire alarm control panel, the installation of a separate software is required. The control centre is then connected to the data centre via VPN using a certified routing device. Https encryption for connections via PC or mobile devices, such as laptop, tablet and smartphone guarantee an additional level of security. A VPN tunnel encrypts the user's entire data traffic.

Our service for your fire protection

From planning, installation and ongoing operation to maintenance, modernisation and expansion: innovative digital services simplify processes and increase quality throughout the entire life cycle. Cloud-based services provide information about the current status of the system and thus enable the advantage of "predictive maintenance". Digital applications complement our fire protection systems to provide efficient and holistic solutions for early fire detection.

Receive messages about alarms, faults or power failures by e-mail or push notification on your computer with Integral Remote Notification. Flexible messages via push notifications appear quickly and reliably on the computer or mobile device, even when the applications are not active.

Be informed at all times and react quickly. With remote access, you can monitor your systems on the move or conveniently from your workplace. This way you always know about the status of the fire alarm system without having to be on-site yourself. Detailed analyses enable the identification of recurring deceptive alarms so that you can quickly take appropriate measures.

This means that tasks during ongoing operations can be solved more efficiently and quickly. In the event of an alarm, initial steps can be taken immediately. During modifications and renovation work, individual detectors can simply be switched off for a short time.

Remote monitoring services are offered on a modular basis and are built on a secure internet connection between the Integral Remote portfolio and the fire alarm systems. Every access to the system and all events are logged. All processes are thus transparent and well documented.

Access requires the installation of software, and an intuitive authorisation management and multi-level identification steps ensure that only authorised personnel has access. The HTTPS-encryption and VPN tunnel guarantee the highest security standards.

With the service platform, fire alarm systems and locations can be managed efficiently. Six feature sets ensure the delivery of even higher quality installation and maintenance services:

  • Site analysis
  • Site Management
  • Maintenance management
  • Product knowledge management
  • Extension and modernisation
  • Site event management

The service platform simplifies planning, commissioning, maintenance and expansion through innovative digital processes. It is an intelligent and efficient cloud solution. To ensure the highest level of security and data protection, the platform is private and hosted in our own data centres.
