Chubb appointed exclusive distributor, installer and service provider for SmartCell wireless fire safety solution

Chubb has been appointed as the exclusive UK distributor, installer and service provider of SmartCell, a complete wireless fire detection platform developed by EMS. The platform provides those customers with smaller commercial sites and properties complete control of their fire safety systems’ performance and strategy.

EMS’ SmartCell solution comprises all of the elements required in a fire safety solution, including an EN-certified control panel, detectors, manual Call Point, sounder (with visual alarm), a dual input/output device and contact transmitter.

Designed with the ability to expand as required, the system can accommodate up to 32 wireless fire and a variety of information devices.

A notable feature of SmartCell, and something of an innovation in the marketplace, is its built-in communications capability, which not only enables remote diagnostics (to identity and remedy potential issues), but also allows all event notifications to be sent to mobile devices via a dedicated Chubb mobile app. This allows customers to have total visibility of their fire system performance, anytime and anywhere.

The solution is also Alarm Receiving Centre-ready, enabling potential fire alarms to be remotely monitored by a third party, as well as having the ability not only to monitor fire, but also floods and potential issues with heating/cooling systems.

Making maximum use of EMS’ technology, a specialist in the field of wireless and hybrid fire detection systems, Chubb has limited exclusive access to the SmartCell system for four months.

“With integrated signalling and intelligent cloud-based communications and notifications, the system offers users the ultimate convenience in accessing their fire safety information,” explained Richard Drew, fire detection and alarms technical and product manager at Chubb. “Compact and with an aesthetically pleasing design, the system is quick and simple to install. Its flexibility makes it a user-friendly, commercially-attractive solution for a wide variety of customers and applications.”

Chubb and EMS are part of Carrier, the global provider of  heating, ventilating and air conditioning, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
