Siemens has launched Fire Safety Digital Services, a first-in-market portfolio of digital and managed services which connects fire safety systems to the cloud, enabling businesses to move from a reactive, compliance-led approach to total protection through intelligent safety. By embracing digital services in operation, event-handling and maintenance, customers can improve hazard identification and prevention, make better risk-control decisions, protect business continuity, and provide a safe environment for people and assets.
“It’s important to remember that with fire systems, compliance does not necessarily equal safety,” said Brad Haeberle, Senior Vice President, Services, Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “With digital services for fire safety we can go beyond simply meeting fire system regulations, by using data and intelligently applied analytics to fully protect people and assets. Developing smarter protection systems through cloud connectivity reduces the burden on people, eliminates unnecessary interruptions and gives businesses much-needed transparency over their processes, for smoother operation and system availability.”
With a combination of on-site and above-site services, the new portfolio delivers remote diagnosis and services which reduce the impact of troubleshooting and inspections on business activities. High levels of knowledge, experience and capacity above site and on-site work together to achieve specific customer goals. Interpreting and translating big data into smart data enables customers to proactively ensure system reliability, gain full data transparency for event and incident handling, and create safer, more compliant and efficient buildings.
