Looking for Fire Alarm Specialist.

Looking for Fire Alarm Specialist.

Looking for Fire Alarm Specialist.

Our business is looking into switching our POTS lines to a IP/Celluar option tied to our Fire Alarm system. We have been told that we need to get an inspection with the local fire marshal to insure that it works properly. We have one of the products already installed and we did a pre-inspection ourselves it worked great. We changed nothing to the fire alarm except the way that it got dial tone. So I guess my one question is does anyone know if we need an actual inspection on just changing the way the dial tone is given to the fire alarm? We have 41 sites and we are trying to avoid a 2900 permit for each site. We are not changing any wiring inside the fire alarm panel. We have 2 cables going from a patch panel into a RJ31X and out to the fire alarm panel. All we do is unplug POTS, plug in IP/Celluar.

I myself would have the marshal check out the location that has already been changed over to see what the verdict is.

RE: Looking for Fire Alarm Specialist.

In most jurisdictions they should be doing an annual inspection anyway, so might as well get it done and have them verify the new alerting connection at the same time. I'm sure it's nothing new to them anyway.

RE: Looking for Fire Alarm Specialist.

I think this entirely depends on where your sites are (state/city). We don't need to get an inspection for every fire alarm, just the inspection we get every year + simplex verification it works.
