I wrote recently about a new “all-in-one” fire alarm and emergency communications system just introduced by Silent Knight by Honeywell. Now the new Farenhyt Emergency Communications System has been honored by the Security Industry Association with an award.

The company says the combo fire alarm/emergency communications systems is an easy and cost-effective way to respond to a growing demand by such customers as schools, hospitals and government and military facilities for more than just a fire alarm system so they can also address emergencies such as severe weather or an armed intruder. And SIA categorized the Farenhyt ECS as one of the “leading edge” products helping to drive the industry forward.

Here’s more from a Honeywell news release today:
 

NORTHFORD, Conn.—Silent Knight by Honeywell announces its new Farenhyt Emergency Communications System has been recognized by SIA (Security Industry Association) as the top Mass Notification solution in the 2012 NPS (New Products Showcase) competition. In its 33rd year, this annual SIA contest received 70 entries, all vying for the top seed in one of 21 categories.

"Once again, the companies competing in the NPS presented the kinds of leading edge entries that are the hallmark of the program," states SIA CEO Don Erickson. "These new technologies and solutions are the drivers that are moving the security industry forward."

Silent Knight's Farenhyt ECS (Emergency Communications System) provides both cutting-edge fire protection and a system for broadcasting real-time communications within a facility, big or small. By integrating mass notification capabilities with its proven fire alarm technology, Silent Knight aims to offer an all-in-one system that is easy-to-use, cost-effective and benefits from the stringent requirements placed on fire alarm systems …

The Farenhyt ECS line delivers real-time, intelligible communications over a completely supervised system that meets the latest NFPA 72, UL 2572 and Department of Defense (DoD) standards. Farenhyt ECS control panels include customizable switches for as many as 15 pre-recorded messages and a microphone for live paging - all simple-to-use technology which enables users to direct general or emergency communications to all or select areas of a facility.

As many as seven Farenhyt ECS-RCUs (Remote Command Units) can tie into a facility's Farenhyt ECS and be conveniently placed throughout a facility to provide a quick means for live paging. Complete operation of fire alarm and ECS functions can also be performed through an ECS-RCU, which is UL-listed and meets the DoD mass notification system requirements of an LOC (Local Operator Console).

The Farenhyt ECS runs on most wire-types, making it a cost-effective retrofit option when existing fire alarm wire is used. Fire alarm speaker intelligibility requirements combined with regular system testing code mandates ensure this integrated fire alarm and ECS communicates clearly and is well maintained.”
