No Wires, Best value Fire System for Boutique Guest House


When Suzie Adams the proprietor of The White House, a distinctive Victorian “boutique” guest house overlooking Hastings Old Town, called Chatham-based Monitor Fire Ltd. to advise her on fire protection she was pleased to discover that the installation of the fire alarm system would not have to damage her beautifully restored premises. Each of the distinctive rooms, all named after American presidents reflects great care and attention to detail so the last thing she wanted was the cabling, mess and disruption associated with wired systems. Monitor Fire, who specialise in the supply, installation and maintenance of fire protection and extinguisher systems in London and the South East designed and installed a system using Detectomat’s SRC 3000 wire free radio fire alarm and detection system. The Detectomat system offers many benefits over a traditional hard wired system, including low cost of installation, cost effectiveness and convenience for premises that are in continual public use. Its benefits make it ideal for the protection of small hotels, B & Bs, and guest houses, nurseries, sheltered housing schemes, special needs projects and residential homes as well as small commercial premises and HMO’s (Houses of Multiple Occupation). It was installed in The White House within one day as opposed to the 7 or 8 days associated with conventional installations, meaning there was very little impact on their year-round, 24/7 business. Suzie Adams, is delighted with the total flexibility it offers and was really pleased to be able to select the “designer” covers for the alarms to suit the individual dǸcor in the bedrooms and function rooms.
