Businesses and buildings are becoming more and more complex and thus require increasingly sophisticated approaches to fire safety. How can Siemens provide the best fire protection?
There is a wide range of needs that must be fulfilled: from safeguarding employees and the business, fully utilizing the building and maximizing operational efficiency, ensuring system integrity to fulfilling legal requirements to comply with standards and regulations.
For fire protection, Cerberus™ PRO provides the answer in a single integrated solution that takes care of every element of protection. It integrates a comprehensive portfolio, application know-how and expert consulting services to ensure an optimal fire safety solution. When something matters to you, you want to give it the best protection possible.
How does a fire safety system work?
For an optimum result a fire safety system should cover every element of fire protection in one integrated solution:
- detection – the quicker you know about the fire the quicker you can fight the fire
- alarming and evacuation – protecting your people from fire – getting them away from the fire as soon as possible
- intelligent extinguishing – extinguish the fire to protect people and places. And for that we have Sinorix.
- danger management – managing your building means managing your building’s fire protection
- Cloud – the best way to monitor multiple places at the same time is with data
