Omega Monitoring offers fast and responsive ULC rated fire monitoring for mid and western Canadian properties.
HOW FIRE MONITORING WORKS
Today’s fire and building codes require ULC fire monitoring systems to be redundant for up to 24 hours. Regardless of the emergency type, all signals need to make it to the 24/7 live staffed monitoring station.
Communications Line: A telephone line is typically rated for 24 hours of emergency power (Telus). Our cellular radio backup provides redundancy should the phone line fail.
Power: All of our fire monitor panels are designed to have battery backup for 24/hrs in the case of a power outage. In the event of a longer power outage, the building will be advised by our 24/7 live staffed monitoring station to go on fire watch.
With our Fire Monitoring package, 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 monitoring station. If the fire has destroyed the main line, the secondary cellular line will be used.
As added assurance, the monitoring system provides daily status reports to the fire department to ensure everything is working properly.
