AMX on the Telly

Did you see Paddington Station this week on Channel 5? Transport Police were called after a passenger urinated in a carriage on a train pulling into the station, a low bridge had to be assessed after it was hit by van, a train's brakes failed in Reading causing widespread delays and Drax Technology’s AMX alarm management system was spotted in the Paddington Station Control Room! 
You’ll be amazed at where our AMX alarm management software ends up being installed. What’s more because of the way we go to market we don’t always know who the end user is either! Hence how excited we were to spot AMX on the TV this week! You can see how effectively our technology is utilised.

There are so many important and significant premises which have our software to manage thousands of fire sensors that populate modern buildings. Every commercial building has fire detection and alarm systems, in the main to warn the occupants of the need to evacuate premises in the event of a fire. However, as buildings get bigger, more complex and the level of occupation increases the requirements for a comprehensive fire detection and alarm system becomes more onerous. This is great for the safety of the building and its occupants but brings a number of challenges for the premises management. Firstly, it’s important to know where all the fire sensors and manual call points are located, are they working and most importantly of all when were they last tested.

As Paddington Station highlights railway stations, airports and shopping centres are another group of users that utilise the Drax software. There are many similarities with these three. Large numbers of people often unfamiliar with the buildings pass through every day. These establishments usually include a large number of retail units, again with fire detection and alarm systems of different manufacture. Keeping a close eye on maintenance and the constant changes that regularly occur to the building's infra-structure is invaluable and our software adds a level of detail available to operational staff, that cannot be provided by a standard fire detection and alarm system.

As you can see, the requirements of these larger establishments are not exclusive due to their size. Many smaller buildings can benefit from our alarm management system by delivering a cost-effective way of providing an electronic log book, asset register, and audit trail as well as detailed additional information to key staff in the event of a serious fire incident.
