How does MultiBel improve the Fire Notification process?

By linking your fire alarm control panel or fire alarm installation with MultiBel, emergency services or evacuation will be initiated more quickly in the event of a fire alarm. If a fire detector indicates a fire, an alarm is automatically sent to the (present) Emergency Response Officers, manager, internal fire brigade, evacuators, management or crisis team. This NEN-EN 54 certified fire alarm ensures that the fire can be verified faster, evacuations are initiated faster and damage is limited. MultiBel can also be used as a NEN2575-4 silent alarm certified evacuation system. This is, in the Netherlands a requirement in for instance hospitals, nursing homes and care homes.

For the company, the insurer and the government (fire brigade), linking your fire alarm system with MultiBel means a reduction in damage. After all, it is precisely the first minutes of a fire that are crucial to intervene.

The power of the MultiBel Fire Notification System

Aanwezigheidsregistratie

Fire notification system works with presence registration

With MultiBel you also immediately have automatic presence registration. If your fire alarm system generates an fire notification, you can choose to alert only those people who are present at the location or to send a fire alert to everyone. You can also be automatically alerted in the event of understaffing per location and function.

Communication in case of fire

With the communication module, all parties involved can communicate directly with each other after the fire alarm. This can be done via the walkie-talkie function of the app and / or conference call. Everyone receives the fire alarm message and can then immediately coordinate with each other, ideal for the crisis team, company fire department or the emergency response officers. This creates a common image much faster.

NEN-certificate & monitoring

Hardware is required to connect MultiBel to your fire panel. This IP detector is NEN-EN 54 certified and works with the SIA protocol and ESPA 4.4.4 alarm protocol. This makes sure that you can send an fire notification with the exact location of the fire. The IP detector is connected to MultiBel via your network connection with a SIM card with mobile data as a backup. The connection is monitored 24/7.

You can also go a step further and use MultiBel as a NEN2575-4 silent alarm evacuation system. The alarms then take place via the smartphones, as a replacement for the pagers and support transmitters.

Fire Notification System with five-fold certainty

MultiBel different channels to alert the right people in the event of a fire. The way in which someone can be reached differs per person but also per moment. The more channels you use, the greater the chance that the person will be reached quickly, including breaking the silent mode of your mobile phone. When your fire alarm system is linked, an alarm is first sent via the app, there is no response, MultiBel automatically switches to spoken messages to a maximum of 10 telephone numbers per person, we send an email and a text message. Until enough people confirm the fire notification. In addition, MultiBel can also reach pagers if necessary.

    Efectis Nederland BV: R. de Feijter

    Sinds februari 2019 maken we bij Efectis gebruik van de Multibel app. Naast een handmatige alarmering via een tablet bij de receptie hebben we ook gekozen voor automatische alarmering bij brand en het gebruik van de noodknoppen in ons brandlab via de IP-melder. We hebben in Multibel verschillende groepen gedefinieerd (BHV, EHBO, Ademluchtdragers en Crisisteam), waardoor we op ieder moment de juiste personen op kunnen roepen.

    Connecting a fire alarm panel for fire notification

    In the event of a fire alarm, your emergency response officers are the first to rush to the fire alarm panel. Once there, the location of the fire is identified. That process can be done faster. By linking your fire alarm panel to MultiBel, you can handle emergency response fire alarms faster. An IP alarm transmitter is often used to link the fire panel to the MultiBel Cloud platform. But what should you take into account when connecting the fire alarm panel?

    How do you know which hardware is suitable?

    Which IP alarm transmitter should I have for emergency response fire alarms? And it is then linked on the basis of the SIA protocol or on the basis of ESPA 4.4.4. protocol? First, the type of fire alarm panel will be looked at. Then whether it is suitable for the ESPA 4.4.4. protocol. The difference between ESPA and SIA is that with the SIA protocol, a connection is made for each reporter in the building on a contact basis. With the ESPA protocol, only 1 connection is made and the correct location is immediately sent by the ESPA protocol.

    How do I ensure the redundancy of the IP alarm transmitter?

    Redundancy is an important concept within MultiBel. Our customers are not dependent on one channel. Back-up is also available at fire alarms. For example, the IP alarm transmitter is equipped with an emergency power supply. The IP alarm transmitter is connected to your organization’s Ethernet. In the event of a fire, the own infrastructure is often the first to be out of service. That is why the IP alarm transmitter is also equipped with a multi-SIM card. As a result, the reporter is also connected to various providers in the Netherlands. And the detector can still initiate a fire alarm.

    Does monitoring take place?

    If your IP alarm transmitter is not working, no emergency response fire alarms will be sent. Monitoring is therefore essential. MultiBel sets up a few malfunction alarms as standard. The moment the IP alarm transmitter detects a malfunction, an alarm will be started automatically. This way you immediately know what is going on and you can solve the problem.

    Certification

    Are you going to link your fire alarm panel? Always check whether there is a NEN EN 54-21 certification. This way you know that the performance level of the IP alarm transmitter meets the European standard. This includes looking at transmission time, transmission monitoring and system availability.

    How do I assess the quality of a fire alarm app?

    There are several apps for emergency response fire alarms. But how can you rate apps on their quality? We give you a few checking points with which you can assess the quality of an fire alarm app. Which certificates are available for an app and what does the availability say about a system?

    SaaS versus pager

    In the past, pagers were often used for emergency situations like a fire. The pager now looses popularity. Fire notification systems with an fire alarm app are increasingly being used. MultiBel is a Software as a Service (SaaS), or an online service. This makes purchasing hardware unnecessary. Curious about what other benefits a SaaS has to offer?
