Firefighters, emergency response personnel, and building occupants can all keep in touch when seconds count and information can save lives.

Modular Design
But its modular design is what makes EST3 a favorite with building owners, installers, and property managers: system components are arranged in layers that swing out for easy access; key components feature removable terminal blocks and simple plug-in connectors; and, its modular design means the system can easily keep pace with even the most radical changes to building floor plans.

Extremely flexible, easy to maintain, and a breeze to service, the EST3 is brimming with design innovations geared expressly towards the goal of providing exceptional performance with a minimum of system overhead.

Signature Series

High_Rise_6_Signature_SeriesHigh Rise Fire and Security wants you to know that Signature Series alarm decisions are made right at the detector. This method of distributed intelligence makes for a more robust system, and stable, more efficient communications.

No building is an island. No application is truly like another. That’s why we made Signature Series as changeable as the buildings they go into.

Design flexibility built right into every application with a module to suit every need — and mounting options that save time and money. Making the best of true multisensor capability, Signature Series detectors continually monitor the protected space with their on-board sensors, each of which is finely tuned to detect a different characteristic of combustion. All this information is gathered and run through a sophisticated algorithm that compares the sensor readings over time to known signatures of fires. Only when a match is found will an alarm condition occur. This means that a single multisensor detector can distinguish between a harmless puff of dust and a wisp of smoke; between hot, humid weather and a serious life safety condition.

With modular carbon monoxide sensors, Signature Series detectors from High Rise Fire and Security pull double-duty, continually monitoring the environment for signs of smoke — as well as its invisible yet deadly companion, carbon monoxide. Meanwhile, continuous self-diagnostics ensures reliability over the long-haul, and innovative field-replaceable smoke chambers make detector maintenance literally a snap.

Signature Series input/output modules are powerful yet flexible devices that allow the life safety system to interact with the world beyond its Signature loop controller. The function of each module is determined by an installer selected personality code, which is set during system configuration. This exclusive Signature Series innovation provides elegant system interoperability — at a fraction of the cost and time when compared with other methods.

Fireworks Interface


EST’s FireWorks—Transforms Information Into Action
When warning signals sound, will your personnel become frozen in the headlights of looming disaster, or act swiftly to protect your building and its occupants?

With EST’s FireWorks, you’ll have the answer. FireWorks is a breakthrough control interface that keeps pace with your building’s protection systems while charting the course for effective response every step of the way.

Somewhere, in a quiet uninhabited corner of your building, a smoke detector goes into alarm. Within seconds another follows suit. Somewhere else an electrical current suddenly changes polarity. Horns begin to sound, strobes flash. A CCTV camera pans to pick up a visual of the alarm scene. A dialer makes an automatic call to the fire department. Other circuits energize.

In a typical emergency situation, hundreds of events like these unfold system-wide in a matter of seconds. Individually they hold little meaning. Together they can overwhelm even the most seasoned operator. But from the right perspective they coalesce into a vivid picture of precisely what is happening, and most importantly, how best to respond. FireWorks™ strikes that delicate balance between too much information and not enough. It is the lens that brings cascading events from thousands of points into sharp, understandable focus. It is the tool that helps your personnel make sense of what is happening and get the information that’s needed for swift, decisive, and effective action.

By merging the very latest design technology with the most innovative life safety systems that have ever come to market, FireWorks™ delivers a highly effective, yet surprisingly simple means of monitoring and control for your building systems. Its unique four-quadrant display pinpoints relevant event details while keeping the big picture in plain view. And its familiar Windows® interface presents a clean, intuitive means of information retrieval and control.

Because FireWorks™ is event-driven, your personnel will never find themselves abandoned by technology just when it’s needed most. Regardless of whether an event is fire and/or security related, FireWorks™ automatically prioritizes all system events so that the most urgent information is always front-and-center. Color coding of event types provides instant visual recognition of what’s occurring. The system also keeps pace with your operator by constantly updating the content of adjacent display quadrants with information relevant to the currently selected event. As the situation unfolds, your operator is never more than a glance away from important, context-sensitive information necessary to bring the matter to a speedy and effective conclusion.

Using the latest Windows® operating system and FireWorks™ software, your life safety control merges seamlessly with other building systems. The payoff: unprecedented flexibility, lightning speed, and virtually limitless application potential.
