About Conventional Fire Alarm Systems

Traditional fire alarm systems operate by utilising circuits connected to sensors, with each device linked to a control panel via wires. When a sensor detects a fire, the alarm triggers, and the control panel identifies the affected zone.

These systems offer several advantages. They're typically more cost-effective than addressable alarms and require less installation effort. Plus, they can be configured into different zones, ensuring that if a fire occurs in one area, it won't disturb occupants elsewhere. For smaller spaces like offices, they're user-friendly and practical.


However, there are drawbacks. They're not ideal for large areas since they only provide a general indication of the fire's location. Additionally, they involve more cabling - potentially creating tripping hazards if not properly concealed.

About Addressable Fire Alarm Systems

Addressable fire alarm systems work differently: they connect multiple devices to the fire panel using a single wire and then use binary code to pinpoint the fire's exact location.

While conventional systems suit smaller spaces better, addressable fire alarms are scalable, making them ideal for larger properties. By precisely identifying where the fire is, they aid emergency services in locating and responding to fires swiftly - minimising risks to occupants' safety and reducing property damage.


These systems offer several advantages, including accurate fire location descriptors and suitability for larger premises. However, they tend to be pricier overall, and setting them up may take more time.

The Differences Between Conventional And Addressable Fire Alarm Systems

When selecting your fire alarm system, it's important to consider the differences between conventional and addressable solutions.

Here's what you need to know:


- Wiring: Addressable systems use a single wire to communicate data between multiple devices, while conventional systems require a separate wire for each device. This means conventional systems need more wiring compared to addressable ones.


- Cost: Generally, conventional fire alarms are cheaper to buy than addressable ones.


- Functionality: Conventional systems indicate the fire's general location through 'zones,' each representing where a device is placed. Addressable systems, however, pinpoint the exact fire location.


- Reliability: Addressable fire alarms tend to be more reliable overall.


For instance, in conventional systems, if a wire is damaged, the system may fail. But addressable systems feature a two-way connection, ensuring the alarm still functions even with wire damage.


Conventional alarms are also more susceptible to false alarms due to dust buildup around the wiring.

Raising The Right Alarm

In short, if you're a small business or organisation looking to install a fire alarm system swiftly and cost-effectively, a conventional option could be your best bet.

However, if you operate in larger premises or have vulnerable occupants and need to pinpoint fire locations rapidly, an addressable system might better suit your requirements.
