SmartCell fire detection system – the smartest investment for HMO properties

SmartCell fire detection system – the smartest investment for HMO properties image

SmartCell is a highly innovative, completely wireless fire detection platform, which provides an efficient, non-invasive fire safety solution perfectly suited to Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO). The HMO sector has a particularly bad reputation for poor fire safety. For example, occupants of houses comprising bedsits are about six times more likely to die as a result of fire than adults in an ordinary house. The wireless nature of SmartCell allows a faster, more cost-effective installation involving less disruption, making it a smart investment for HMOs.

Innovation and flexibility in fire detection ‎

Although physically no larger than a traditionally wired smoke detector, one installed SmartCell device can incorporate a heat and smoke detector, a sounder and an EN54-23 visual alarm device all in one aesthetically pleasing design.

The SmartCell control panel has been intentionally designed to be intuitive and simple to use, whilst also offering comprehensive configuration options which can be managed both via a laptop - using USB connection - or remotely. The state-of-the-art software allows SmartCell to offer features which are usually only seen on high-end systems.

Futureproofing wireless connectivity ‎

The expandable SmartCell system can accommodate up to 32 wireless fire detection or information devices, making it the perfect solution for HMO settings looking to streamline the maintenance of numerous residences. The platform is suitable for both large and small properties and its wireless nature makes it a simpler, faster and cheaper installation option.

Intelligent communication ‎

A notable feature of SmartCell is its built-in communications capability enabling users to identify and remedy potential issues remotely without the need to be on site. The fact that the system also syncs with a dedicated free Chubb mobile app, means it allows users to monitor and assess potential risks 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Designed to be Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) ready - SmartCell offers users the ability to have potential fire alarms remotely monitored by Chubb. This function also has the capacity to detect floods and potential issues with heating/cooling systems, helping busy HMO property owners to manage risk and reduce operating and maintenance costs.

Richard Drew, FD&A technical and product manager at Chubb said; “ With integrated signalling and intelligent cloud-based communications and notifications, the system offers users the ultimate convenience in accessing their fire safety information . Its flexibility, coupled with its compact, aesthetically pleasing design and quick and simple installation, makes it a user-friendly, commercially-attractive solution for a wide variety of customers and applications .”

SmartCell – tomorrow’s wireless technology, available today

As SmartCell is completely wireless, it allows for fast, easy deployment and no damage to the fabric of the property. A complete fire system can be installed in one working day making it easier to manage tenant expectations. Whether you are looking for a complete new system, retrofitting, or expanding an existing system, SmartCell offers an easy to install, flexible solution.
