The proper selection of smart systems that are reliable and robust plays a vital role in relation to fire safety and security, said Dilip Sinha, General Manager, Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Honeywell. Sinha, speaking on the topic, exclusively told Climate Control Middle East that while most countries have strong regulatory and monitoring processes to ensure safety and security in the event of fire, most governments and civil defence authorities are also changing the regulations to adopt emerging technologies for the safety and security of the public.

Sinha said that in addition to implementing technologically advanced systems, it is important to maintain them properly. The advantage of ensuring that such systems are maintained, he added, is vital, as such systems can allow for faster communication processes across different points in the event of an incident, leading to faster evacuation. “Letting the property manager and security people at different points know through their command and control systems or through their phones and apps that something has gone wrong at a certain point [is vital],” he said, “so that people can take quick and effective actions.”
