The Impact of OPEN ACCESS™
In traditional fire alarm monitoring, a fire alarm signal is generated at a building and then transmitted to a ULC-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 ULC-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.
OPEN ACCESS™ Impact on Fire Departments
Fire Departments are always striving to reduce response times. As demonstrated in the graphic above, OPEN ACCESS™ technology can play an important role in improving a Fire Department’s ability to arrive on scene quickly by reducing dispatch time and the possibility of human error.
