Honeywell Technology Delivers Emergency Communication

New technology from NOTIFIER, part of Honeywell’s Life Safety Group, enables high-rise buildings, schools and college campuses, mass transit hubs and multiple facilities to deliver fast and widespread emergency communication.

In the event of a dangerous emergency, NOTIFIER’s mass notification systems broadcast live, up-to-the-minute information to everyone to prevent injuries and save lives. The product line fits a wide range of facility types.

FireVoice 25/50 is geared to smaller, stand-alone facilities, while Digital Voice Command (DVC) is engineered specifically for larger buildings and campuses that require a greater level of flexibility and sophistication in their communication system.

Multiple DVC systems linked together via the NOTI-FIRE-NET intelligent network form a powerful mass notification system capable of informing thousands of people throughout a campus about an unfolding emergency.

Also included in the mass notification portfolio is a complete line of visual and audible peripheral notification appliances — such as amber strobes, LED signs and speaker clusters:

  • Flashing amber strobes accompany voice instructions to visually alert occupants than an emergency exists.

  • Programmable LED signs placed in areas where a large number of people assemble or pass by can communicate information specific to the emergency or display a simple message, such as “evacuate.”

  • Large speaker clusters can be installed on the exterior of a building or multiple buildings through a campus to provide voice instructions to people outdoors in the general vicinity of the buildings.

Based in Morris Township, N.J., Honeywell is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — The Leading Suppliers of NAHB.
