Fire Safety, Smart Home

How can you futureproof properties against upcoming regulations?

Whilst achieving compliance with the latest standards and regulations is always the priority for many housing providers across England, Scotland and Wales, latest legislative updates also present the opportunity to futureproof an entire housing stock against new regulations that may come into force at a later date.

As FireAngel’s Specification Range of smoke, heat and CO alarms feature Smart RF technology, the addition of a Smart RF Radio Module into each alarm activates a cloud-based gateway, FireAngel Connected, which provides remote real time monitoring of each alarm in every property.

This takes the level of fire protection available one step further, as the alarms are wirelessly sending key data across the private network, which enables social housing providers to gain instant access to essential information regarding each alarm, including current status, alarm history, replacement dates and network health.

This not only ensures adherence with the new standard but enables providers to cost-effectively upgrade their fire safety by understanding the level of risk each property / tenant presents.
