Drax Technology launches SMaRT Web
Drax Technology has launched a new product to complement its existing range of Alarm Management products.

SMaRT Web is not only a new product but introduces a new way for customers to pay. SMaRT Web uses cloud based technology to collect and store data from each connected fire alarm system and users pay by purchasing an annual renewable licence for each connection, resulting in no major capital expense for hardware.

Simple and quick to install the SMaRT Web module is compatible with many different manufacturers fire alarm control panels and in most cases connects to the panel via the exist RS232 serial port to provide a significant level of data from each connected system.

Each connected system is then monitored for a change of status. So the occurrence of a fault, pre-alarm or fire from any device is automatically transmitted via GPRS to one of two remotely located, secure servers and stored for immediate and easy access by an authorised user using a PC, smart phone or tablet equipped with standard browser software.

Email alerts can also be set up to notify users or engineers of activity on individual systems. Adjusting the criteria allows one or a number of people to be notified of a combination of different event types. If necessary, settings can be changed to allow notifications to be sent to individuals at specific times of the day or week.

The benefits are huge and aimed at fire alarm service and maintenance organisations as well as facilities & estates managers managing a large portfolio of buildings.

Intelligent use of SMaRT Web will facilitate savings over time. Use by engineers as a one man commissioning tool is just one of the savings on offer. The ability to check the status of a system prior to a service visit is another.

Comprehensive and customisable reports can be generated using the many different elements of data collected and can be used to improve service levels, monitor the performance of systems, engineers as well as the service & maintenance organisation. These benefits along with a paperless audit trail suitable to satisfy legislative requirements such as the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order combine to make SMaRT Web a very cost effective alarm management solution.
