Advisor Management Software

February 2017 Fire & Safety, Products & Solutions

Security and facility management has evolved into a complex set of business functions, which all need to be managed, taking safety and security of the staff, visitors and physical assets as a priority. There are numerous factors driving complexity: multiple sites, remote locations, flexible working hours, number of employees and visitors, as well as evolving needs.

Only an integrated management solution is able to cope with this evolution, providing facility and security managers with a clear view and control over these different functions. Imagine one interface to manage and control all of your security needs on-site or remotely, on various premises, ranging from intrusion and fire detection to access control and video surveillance.

The Advisor Management System supports full integration of the FP1200/FP2000, 2X, ZP2 and KFP fire alarm panels for event monitoring as well as control over the fire alarm system installation. It provides the operator with an intuitive graphical user interface, featuring graphical plans with events dynamically displayed on screen to assist in the rapid location of a fire. This allows for improved response time to fire events and other hazards, thus reducing risks to life, property or the environment.

In case of a fire alarm, the location of the alarm will instantly appear on the screen. Activation of a live video stream allows verification of the presence of a fire and if needed, other video streams can be selected directly from the floor plan. When a raging fire has been confirmed, doors can be unlocked, sounders can be activated, elevators can be brought to the ground level, all while verifying the chain of events with the video system connected.

One database for all functions linked to events and where access rights can be altered, eliminates chances for error. Advisor Management Software also supports:

• Digital video surveillance.

• Intrusion detection.

• Access control supporting multiple sites.

There is also a mobile application for iOS, Android and Windows. Features include:

• View the fire network status.

• Reset a fire network or a control panel.

• Sound or silence sounders.

• Enable or disable features or devices.

• Perform a one-man walk test.

• View system events.
