Fire MonitoringOur fire monitoring service sends a fire alarm signal directly to Kelowna Fire Dispatch
Omega Monitoring offers the only solution in town that sends a fire alarm signal DIRECTLY to Kelowna Fire Dispatch personnel, by-passing the middle man and ensuring the fastest response time available.
How Fire Monitoring Works
The new fire and building codes require you to have one telephone line that will last 24 hours without power in case of power failure, and one back-up line.
Telephone Line: Shaw telephones are not rated for 24 hours of power, whereas Telus lines are powered, so they are not affected by a power outage.
Back-up Line: The second line needs to be wireless (cellular) or internet based. We cannot use internet lines if the line/cable comes in the same way as the telephone line, so cellular is the preferred method.
With our Fire Monitoring package, you will have a Telus line (tenant, fax, or dedicated) and a wireless line. Should a fire occur, the monitoring equipment will immediately take control of the designated phone line, even if it is in use, and instantly send a signal to the Fire Department Dispatch Centre. If the fire has destroyed the main line, the secondary wireless line will be used.
As added assurance, the monitoring system provides daily status reports to the fire department to ensure everything is working properly.
