  • Real-time sys­tem mon­i­tor­ing — each unit mon­i­tors itself (bat­tery, sig­nal, etc.)

Deploy­ing the VPS FireAl­ert WES+ devices on a con­struc­tion site:

  • VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ devices can be deployed as soon as the cab­ins are on acon­struc­tion site and the build is out of the ground.
  • Fire Points are placed accord­ing to your fire plan
    • Nor­mal­ly at every stair­well or lift shaft – and can be added as the build progresses.
    • Heat, smoke or dust-proof smoke detec­tors pro­vide active fire pro­tec­tion in enclosed areas and in tem­po­rary accom­mo­da­tion units.
  • All your VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ sys­tem devices are con­nect­ed into a net­work. In the wake of fire, any unit can trig­ger a site wide alarm, whether active­ly in the case of the detec­tion units or man­u­al­ly via the Fire Points.
  • The Base Sta­tion will inform you where the trig­ger­ing unit is so you can pin­point the fire. You can also set up text alerts to help you pro­vide an imme­di­ate response. If you have the VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ app, you can also export reports of your silent test results and any acti­va­tions for full report­ing and tracking.
  • Once the con­struc­tion project is com­plete, you can eas­i­ly re-use your VPS FireAl­ert Wes+ units on your next project.
