In an interview with Detektor TV Magazine, Mario Kahlert, Siemens Head of Fire & Safety, stresses that the fire alarm industry is still trying to figure out the best way to approach digitalisation.

Digitalisation and how products can be installed and serviced easier is the main trend in the fire detection market according to Mario Kahlert. He believes it is important to keep the balance between what is technically possible and what is allowed according to industry regulations

“The general trend of digitalisation is something we want to pick up and really drive forwards, either with remote connectivity, with service ability and also with BIM (Building Information Model) for our products”, he says.

During the last couple of years, new solutions of how to detect fire have been launched on the market. One example is cameras with video based fire detection combined with intelligent video analysis for early flame and smoke detection.

“I think that the basic principle of the detectors we have today will remain and that ASD technology (Aspirating Smoke Detector) will grow in importance”, says Mario Kahlert.
