FireAngel has launched its New Generation Cellular Gateway enabling housing providers to offer higher levels of protective and preventative fire safety.
Using FireAngel’s Smart RF technology, the New Generation Cellular Gateway wirelessly connects smoke, heat and carbon-monoxide alarms in a property to FireAngel’s Connected cloud-based platform. Housing providers can then monitor when alarms are triggered, removed or need maintenance. The FireAngel Connected solution is augmented with an AI-powered fire risk tool, FireAngel Predict, which uses live data to give a real-time risk level for each property.
FireAngel’s new gateway is Zigbee-compliant, allowing connectivity with other Zigbee sensors in a property, such as water-leak detectors, panic buttons and motion sensors. The gateway also has built-in temperature and humidity sensors to allow housing providers to identify properties at risk of damp and mould.
Trials of the New Generation Cellular Gateway are currently underway in a number of social housing properties across the UK.
Nick Rutter, co-founder and chief product officer, FireAngel, said, “Our New Generation Cellular Gateway is an integral part of a housing provider’s digital transformation strategy. Because it gives access to our FireAngel Connected system, it offers housing providers a remote monitoring system as well as offering a live risk assessment tool to help protect tenants and properties.
“With Zigbee built in, our system can integrate with existing asset management systems so housing providers can be assured that the monitoring of a property’s ecosystem will be scalable and expandable in the future to provide increased safety and reassurance.”
