3. Hardwire Addressable Upgrade
The V5 Advance Fire Extinguishing Panel can be upgraded into an addressable panel where it can record and display the address of each detector that is in alarm. This hardwire addressable feature works with ANY conventional detector. The addressable feature is an add-on to the system. It functions independently. Any failure in the addressable feature does not affect the normal function of the panel in any way. The address, zone, date and time of alarm are stored in the LCD display unit's 999 event memory and can be printed out if required.

Guardview Graphical Alarm Management StationGuardview - Graphical Alarm Management Station
The Guardview offers user a graphical interface to manage the entire Fire Extinguishing System. It works with conventional as well as with the hardwire addressable system. The Guardview runs from a Windows based PC. 

During an alarm, the relevant alarm zone is displayed by the Guardview system. If the system has implemented the hardwire addressable upgrade, then the location of the alarmed detector is also indicated.

The Guardview records all alarm events in its database. The system allows events t be sorted based on my criteria and allows the information to be printed out.

The Guardview software allows user to add, modify and delete zone diagrams and detector addresses into the system. Access to the administrative functions are password protected. Three levels of access are available and numbers of users are unlimited.
