Conventional Fire Alarm Equipment
Conventional panels have been around ever since electronics became small enough to make them viable. Conventional panels are used less frequently in large buildings than in the past, but are not uncommon on smaller projects such as small schools, stores, restaurants, and apartments.
A conventional Fire Alarm Control Panel employs one or more circuits, connected to sensors (initiating devices) wired in parallel. These sensors are devised to dramatically decrease the circuit resistance when the environmental influence on any sensor exceeds a predetermined threshold. In a conventional fire alarm system, the information density is limited to the number of such circuits used.
To facilitate location and control of fire within a building, the structure is subdivided into definite areas or zones. Floors of a multistory building are one type of zone boundary.

Addressable Fire Alarm Systems
Addressable panels are usually more advanced than their conventional counterparts, with greater information capacity, identification, control and flexibility. A few of the advantages of addressable fire alarm systems is that they can be configured so that a specific action triggers a specific response, reduced installation and service labor, as well as improved record keeping for inspections.

"Swift" Wireless Fire Detection
Using a Class A, mesh network where every device acts as a repeater with redundant path communication, SWIFT systems are robust and self-healing, making them a highly-reliable fire detection solution. The elimination of wires leads to more flexibility in installation, reducing the cost of running wire through concrete walls/ceilings or areas where materials such as asbestos are a concern. Wireless technology also benefits the numerous installations where mounting detectors is extremely challenging.
