Radio Linked Smoke Alarm Systems

GSMA Connected Life 0

Fire alarms have been with us for the past many years, they have helped prevent many fire outbreaks in buildings. However, it is radio linked alarm systems that are the big deal; many experts have dubbed these alarm systems as game changers. In essence, radio linked smoke alarms are connected to each other. When one detects smoke or a small smoldering fire, it automatically alerts the others. In the traditional alarms, the interconnecting wires can get burnt and thus fail to link with other alarms in the premises. That’s why linking them via radio is the way to go.

To understand this better, imagine living in a flat or block of apartments where there is a radio linked smoke alarm system. If the fire were to start at the basement, or top floor, the person who’s furthest may not know of the fire until after t has probably spread to where they are. But with this system in place, a fire alarm anywhere is a fire alarm everywhere; every home owner will get notified right away. There are different brands of radio linked smoke alarm systems, each with its own specifications. Basically, you should look out for the battery life because once you have set the alarm in place you don’t need to keep checking it to see whether it’s functioning. A good system should have a battery life o f not less than 10 years. Also, the system should be digitally coded to avoid interferences from other similar systems in adjacent buildings.

The bigger the premises and the amount of items that you have to move will determine how many people you will need and the size and amount of vehicles that you will need to make the job run a smooth as possible.

Organisation is key to this so you should write down a number of tasks that you will need to do beforehand and cross them off as you complete them.

One of the first things you should organise is the date that the move needs to be complete by. Once you have organised this you should separate all of your possessions so you know what you are going to do with them. You will most likely have a lot of rubbish that needs disposing of and you should consider using a rubbish collection company to dispose of all of waste in an environmentally friendly way.

Measure any large items so you know how big the vehicle you will need to accommodate them if you need to hire one or let the company that will be doing the move know so they will have the appropriate equipment.

Plan you route also and find out about slight inconveniences like parking charges and congestions fees that you may come up against which may slow you down.
