Fire Alarm Monitoring
Lexicon Security provides ULC fire alarm monitoring for fire alarm systems to our customers throughout Canada. What is fire alarm monitoring? Simply put, it connects your building with the local fire department, alerting them if there’s a fire in your building. You may have thought that the fire department was already connected to your building, but they’re not. Fire Codes and Building Codes require that certain classes of buildings have and maintain monitoring with a 3rd party which complies with ULC standard ULC-S561.
Fire alarms in buildings SAVE LIVES. They are the single most important and effective way for you to keep your building and its occupants safe from fires. But fires can overtake your building in seconds – by the time you are safely out of the building, it may be too late to call the fire department! Fortunately, this problem can be solved by installing a fire alarm monitoring system.
Fire alarm monitoring is basically a way to take your building’s fire protection to a whole new level. A fire alarm monitoring system consists of an annunciator panel that syncs with your fire alarm and wirelessly connects your building to a central monitoring station. Every time the alarms in your building go off, the annunciator panel sends a signal to the monitoring station, which immediately notifies the authorities of an emergency in your building at any time, day or night – even when the building is unoccupied.
