New iPad App Allows Users to Create Multiple System Layouts and Train End Users While Video Demonstrates Emergency Command Center Capabilities

NORTHFORD, Conn. – Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell (NYSE:HON) announced today a new iPadŽ App and video, designed to demonstrate the Emergency Command Center's (ECC) multitude of mass notification capabilities and layout configurations. Both the App and video can serve as sales tools for installers, as well as an invaluable training kit for end users. The "Fire-Lite ECC" App can be downloaded free-of-charge to iPad devices through the AppleŽ iTunes StoreŽ. The ECC video is available on both and

The ECC mass notification system integrates with virtually any brand of fire alarm system to provide an economical solution for communicating critical messages, general announcements, and even background music, throughout a standalone building.  Given the ECC's high degree of scalability, the Fire-Lite App begins with an overview of all ECC system components and their features to provide installers a system parts guide and familiarize end users with their own ECC system. It also supplies the wire types and power requirements necessary for ECC components, such as primary operator consoles, remote microphones, local operator consoles (LOC), amplifiers and notification devices. 

The application offers an interactive model of the ECC primary operator console's keypad interface. This section of the App provides step-by-step instructions for using an ECC operator console, along with a demonstration of how the console would function in the event of a fire. For training purposes, facility and security managers, teachers and other authorized ECC users can use this virtual interface to become familiar with the system and practice sending out certain emergency alerts to particular "zones" or locations. At the same time, installers can illustrate the ECC's simplistic operation to potential customers.

Functioning like a virtual erector set, the App allows users to construct an ECC system, placing and moving around various parts on a static building floor plan. This section's drag-and-drop feature illustrates the ECC mass notification system's modularity, allowing users to place remote paging units, fire fighter telephones and other control panels in the most effective, accessible building locations.

With integrators and engineers in-mind, Fire-Lite added a fourth section to the ECC App, where as users drag and drop ECC system components onto a wall, allowing them to total speaker outputs, and track power and amplification requirements.

The Fire-Lite ECC App's breadth of capabilities compliments the five-minute ECC video's presentation of this mass notification system's cost-effective scalability and ease-of-use.

"The video is a good, fast-paced intro to the ECC system," says Elizabeth Richards, marcomm manager, Fire-Lite Alarms. "The App started out as a replacement for the heavy demo kits our sales people used to carry around. Once we started developing it, we found there were so many more functions we could roll into it for the benefit of integrators and end users."

All Fire-Lite Alarms fire alarm and mass notification systems are non-proprietary, sold over-the-counter at Security Equipment Distributors nationwide. Visit to access all ECC resources, including the ECC video, technical documentation, installer training courses, and more. Search for "Fire-Lite ECC" in the Apple iTunes StoreŽ to download the App free-of-charge.
