Ealing Council and FireAngel announce pioneering IoT partnership

One of Europe’s leading smoke, heat and carbon monoxide (CO) alarm suppliers, FireAngel, has agreed a partnership with Ealing Council in conjunction with CEF to deliver one of the largest IoT roll outs of its kind currently available in the UK.

The ground-breaking contract will see the supply of FireAngel’s advanced connected technology, FireAngel Spec Connected, which will cost effectively provide Ealing Council with a remote monitoring solution that ensures maximum levels of fire and CO detection for its tenants.

Ealing Council will oversee the supply and installation of over 122,000 smoke, heat and CO alarms across an initial 14,000 of 17,000 properties located throughout West London, whilst also benefitting from FireAngel’s patented Predict™ technology, which will highlight trends and highrisk patterns of behaviour to prompt earlier intervention before an actual fire event.

After an initial trial period, FireAngel’s affordable yet adaptable Specification Range was chosen due to its remote monitoring capabilities and compliance with an LD1 Category specification, which subsequently futureproofs all properties against any regulatory changes in the years ahead. FireAngel’s battery-powered Specification Range smoke, heat and CO alarms, supported by a FireAngel Connected Gateway, will be installed in each of the initial 14,000 properties, with the alarms exclusively supplied by CEF through the Procurement for Housing framework.

FireAngel and Ealing Council have together developed a bespoke recyclable cardboard ‘kit pack’ that contains no plastic waste, significantly reducing the amount of packaging materials the installer needs to dispose of when during the installation process. The packs contain FireAngel’s battery-powered Specification Range of smoke, heat and CO alarms, which will be installed across Ealing Council’s housing stock in line with an LD1 Category specification.

As the alarms are wirelessly interlinked across a secure private network, the technology will allow Ealing Council to easily monitor and manage the status of the alarms in real time, highlighting any potential issues as and when they occur.

FireAngel’s Specification Range enables continuous monitoring of fire and CO safety devices within domestic properties via a central, secure cloud based system. Featuring Smart RF technology, the range of mains and batterypowered alarms supports the interlink of up to 50 devices together on a wireless network by fitting a Smart RF module.

The devices include smoke, heat, CO alarms and assisted living solutions, which can be interlinked via a private network so that when one alarm sounds, they all sound. This also immediately notifies tenants of a potential fire or CO event, providing a faster response time that allows individuals to safely and quickly exit the property.
