As technology evolves and improves, we see smart technology advancing into all parts of our lives including fire safety plans. In today’s article we will touch on how smart technology can be implemented in fire safety plans.
Fire safety plans include instructions covering when different parts of the fire safety plan need to be checked and tested. Smart technology is can be used to issue alerts to someone’s phone or computer, that it is time to address part of the safety plan, and by automating certain parts of the plan.
Automation and Alerts
To give you some examples of how automation and alerts work in fire safety plans, let’s look at some individual parts.
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Detectors, for example, may make a noise if they are set off. But smart technology would allow these detectors to send an alert to your computer or phone. So, you would not have to hear the actual noise of the detector but would be made aware of it anyway through your computer devices.
Alerts can be broadcast to more than one person along with instructions on what to do next per your fire safety plan.
Automation and alerts can also let you know that it is time to test certain equipment or get equipment inspected by professionals. This will save time and energy for employees, and make everyone safer in the event of real fire. As such, smart technology should be a welcome addition to any fire safety plan for home or business.
