FireEye

Remote Fire Pump Monitoring Capability - Europe

In fire protection there is no room for shortfalls in the processes, procedures or attitudes affecting maintenance and the ability of a system to do its job as needed. There is a need to keep an eye on the fire pump at all times, not only when periodically tested.

Remote Fire Pump Monitoring Capability - Europe

In fire protection there is no room for shortfalls in the processes, procedures or attitudes affecting maintenance and the ability of a system to do its job as needed. In theory, a system which is tested and approved to stringent standards, runs for only half an hour each week and is regularly maintained - would not be an obvious candidate to need remote monitoring. However, it would be wrong to believe that vigilant monitoring is not required. There is a need to keep an eye on the fire pump at all times, not only when periodically tested.

Regular fire pump tests prove the system is working during that time but can you be sure it will work without failure if it is called into action later on? There are many reasons why system performance may be compromised after the test. Simple oversight, carelessness when doing a simple (and perhaps boring) task, intentional damage caused by a disaffected person, poor maintenance or system misuse are all circumstances that could cause a failure with possibly tragic consequences.

Whether the causes of problems are accidental or intentional, the result can be substantial in terms of financial and other losses. In such circumstances, even if the pump room, control room, reception or complete structure is lost as a result of fire, logged data on a supported, third party (hosted), remote web server can go some way to be able to provide valuable information after the event.

The benefits of FireEye Pump Monitoring

The installation of FireEye can alleviate system failures and may reduce - if not prevent - significant faults, costs, downtime and even loss of life. All applications including warehouses, factories, schools and offices can employ and benefit from this concept. Controlled environments, airports, hospitals, power plants and other transmitter free sites can use the device, confident that other or integrated building infrastructures will not be interfered with.
