Fire Safety, Social Housing

FireAngel’s Home Environment Gateway Launches

The Home Environment Gateway delivers a holistic resident safety solution, encompassing fire safety, AI‑driven risk stratification and background environmental monitoring to support the creation of ‘healthy homes’.

Designed for social rental properties, this easy to fit gateway can be used as the base plate for Specification mains‑powered alarms and uses Smart RF technology to wirelessly connect smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms to the FireAngel Connected cloud‑based platform.

The most technologically advanced gateway on the market

FireAngel’s Home Environment Gateway (FS2550W2ZB-T) enables social housing providers to prioritise condensation, damp and mould interventions and increase fire prevention measures.

With seamless integration to Connected, data from each property is presented to social-housing landlords in actionable, manageable insights, allowing them to monitor when alarms are triggered, removed or require maintenance.

The FireAngel Connected solution is further enhanced with an AI-powered fire-risk tool, FireAngel Predict®, which uses live data to give a real-time risk level unique to each property. This enables landlords to prioritise condensation, damp and mould interventions and increase fire prevention measures for residents who need it most.

Identify properties at risk of damp and mould

Data collected from the in-built temperature (accuracy ±1℃) and humidity (accuracy ± 10%RH) can be seamlessly integrated into FireAngel’s Connected solution, allowing landlords to pinpoint properties at risk of developing damp and mould.

This real-time insight on a property’s internal environment supports housing providers in complying with the Social Housing Act 2023, including Awaab’s Law, and can help to reduce spend on legal claims through taking a ‘data‑driven approach’ to tackling damp and mould in properties – as recommended by the Housing Ombudsman.

The Home Environment Gateway is further enhanced with Zigbee capability which allows connectivity with up to 20 additional sensors within the property, such as water-leak detectors or air quality monitors, supporting smarter homes for the future.

Simple, unobtrusive installation

The Gateway can be used in any room within the home (except bathrooms and kitchens) and can be installed as the base plate for one FireAngel Specification mains-powered alarm. With no additional wiring needed, it’s quick to fit for installers.

Equipped with LTE/GPRS cellular and Wi-Fi connectivity options, it ensures the Gateway is always connected and protecting residents. Plus, the 10 year operational life offers long lasting resident protection and peace of mind for landlords.

FireAngel Software Product Manager, Jaison Mathai, says: ‘Our Home Environment Gateway is an integral part of a social landlord’s digital transformation strategy. As it gives access to our FireAngel Connected system, it offers landlords a remote monitoring system as well as offering a live risk assessment tool to help protect residents and properties.

‘The fact that our gateway has Zigbee built in and our system can integrate with existing asset management systems means landlords can future-proof, knowing that the monitoring of a property’s ecosystem will be scalable, and expandable in the future to provide increased safety and reassurance.’
