Time/Temperature Relationship

The Impact of OPEN ACCESS™

In traditional fire alarm monitoring, a fire alarm signal is generated at a building and then transmitted to an Underwriters Laboratories listed Monitoring Centre.  Upon receipt, the Monitoring Centre Operator will notify the fire department of the alarm without verification.  Conversely, OPEN ACCESS™ is a high-speed gateway that allows for the direct and immediate alarm delivery from third party Underwriters Laboratories listed Monitoring Centres to emergency response dispatch centres.  This technology has been independently proven to save an average of 114.7 seconds on emergency response times thus reducing potential property damage and loss of life.
