Honeywell Introduces NOTIFIER INSPIRE™ Fire Alarm System with Self-Test Detectors

The NOTIFIER INSPIRE series integrates with Honeywell’s cloud-based Connected Life Safety Services (CLSS) cloud-based platform.

Honeywell, a fire and life safety solutions provider, launched Tuesday the first fire alarm system with UL-approved self-testing smoke detectors that can be tested automatically.

Honeywell says the NOTIFIER INSPIRE™ fire alarm system with Self-Test detectors is designed to create a safer building environment by increasing facility managers’ awareness of system needs while equipping service providers with digital self-testing tools that streamline maintenance and support regulatory compliance and system uptime.

NOTIFIER INSPIRE is an all-in-one fire system that offers protection, scalability, efficient monitoring, and flexible and timely reporting, according to the company. It is said to help enhance fire technician efficiency as it is designed to scale based on the buildings’ needs, minimizes the need for equipment changes, and provides secure connectivity.

“Honeywell is integrating intelligence across all aspects of fire and life safety systems,” said Jurgen Van Goethem, global president, Fire, Honeywell. “By digitalizing the most essential system in the building, we’re creating efficiencies during commissioning and maintenance, we’re further improving system reliability and we’re improving the end-user experience. We’re also working to change building owners’ mindsets to think about fire and life safety systems not just as a necessary system to be able to occupy the building, but as a system with a wealth of data that going forward, we can tap into to ultimately better protect lives. This will help move the industry toward the creation of safer and more compliant buildings.”

The NOTIFIER INSPIRE series integrates with Honeywell’s cloud-based Connected Life Safety Services (CLSS) cloud-based platform. CLSS offers real-time visibility into the fire system to installers, service technicians and facility managers, and allows technicians to diagnose and troubleshoot problems ahead of time, improving first-time fix rates and reducing time spent on-site.

NOTIFIER Self-Test eliminates many of the physical barriers during test and maintenance such as locked rooms, high ceilings, and other hard-to-access spaces. The detectors introduce small amounts of heat and smoke into their own detection chambers, testing both the photo and thermal sensors as well as verifying that smoke entry points are free of obstruction.

A single technician can initiate the test at the NOTIFIER INSPIRE panel for an entire building, minimizing disturbances in working spaces and eliminating the need to access difficult-to-reach areas like elevator shafts, says Honeywell. The inspection report is digitized, delivered electronically through the CLSS application within minutes, and creates an end-to-end electronic audit trail to support full compliance.

NOTIFIER INSPIRE series with the Self-Test detector is currently available in the United States through NOTIFIER by Honeywell and will be released globally in the near future.
