Types of Fire Protection Systems

Fire protection systems, also known by their abbreviation as "PCI", are a set of equipment that is integrated with the structure of a building and whose main mission is to help prevent, detect and stop a possible fire. Currently, these systems must comply with a series of measures specified by the government. When we talk about types of Fire Protection systems, we refer to two main measures, although there are other classifications to consider that we will mention below. Types of fire fighting systems As we have advanced, there are two main fire protection measures: - Passive fire protection measures The objective of passive protection measures is to minimize the effect of the fire once it has occurred, limiting the spread of smoke and flames, to allow an evacuation of the building. We are talking about covering structures, air duct gates, fire doors, signs, compartmentalisation of fire sectors ... - Active fire protection measures For its part, the objective of active protection measures is to ensure that the fire is extinguished as quickly and effectively as possible in the building. Among the active measures we find fire detection measures, generally based on the detection of smoke or temperature increase and fire extinguishing measures, whether manual (fire extinguishers, equipped fire hydrants (BIE), dry column and hydrants) or automatic water, gas or dust (water curtains, foams, carbon dioxide, normal dust, multipurpose dust ...) Fire protection installations The equipment and systems that are part of fire protection installations must meet a series of conditions set by the government. The law details the regulations and requirements for design, installation, maintenance and minimum human resources that installation and maintenance companies of fire protection installations should have. Hence the importance of always betting on approved fire protection companies.

Anti-theft Smoke Alarm: what is it, how does it work and which one to choose?
Anti-theft Smoke Alarm: what is it, how does it work and which one to choose?
Anti-theft Smoke Alarm: what is it, how does it work and which one to choose?

The anti-theft smoke alarm systems are a growing trend among alarm installers and owners, thanks to their high effectiveness in home and business intrusion situations. That's why By Demes has the most reliable device on the market: the VESTA anti-theft alarm smoke. We will explain what it is, how it works, and which one to choose.    What is the VESTA anti-theft alarm smoke? The innovative VESTA Alarm System presents the NebulaVESTA security smoke generator (Ref. VESTA-156), a device that stands out for its high reliability when it comes to preventing a theft or an occupation. It is capable of saturating the environment where it is located thanks to the anti-theft smoke curtain that completely prevents visibility. In this way, it is impossible to operate inside the room in which it is located. The installation of the Nebula VESTA device offers several advantages: Compatibility with the VESTA Panel Saturation of 150 m3 in 30 seconds is possible. Small footprint, low installation costs, and ease of use Includes a full smoke load by default Radio module and integrated relay inputs and output, as well as a siren with wall tamper Remote activation possible, from the ARC or SmartHomeSec App Battery-powered, with a service life of up to 4 years Non-toxic smoke certified to ensure compliance with essential safety requirements Activation according to rules assigned in the VESTA Panel Possibility of activation by verified alarm (magnetic, magnetic, and PIR jump, etc.) How does the VESTA smoke generator work and how is it configured? The Nebula VESTA device can be activated in three different ways: by manual and remote activation of the smoke generator via a button, by automatic activation, and by activation according to preset rules (time, other activated devices, system status, etc.). Its operation is simple and effective at the same time, since when the system alarm detects an irregularity and activates the operation of the device. It is then that the anti-theft smoke starts to be generated and the intruder will have no choice but to flee. The configuration of the products in the smoke burglar alarm range by the installer is relatively simple. To do this, a series of simple steps must be followed through the SmartHomeSec App. To understand in more depth how the Nebula VESTA smoke generator works and is configured, we share a video tutorial: What to take into account when choosing an anti-theft smoke alarm? When purchasing an alarm system and burglar alarm smoke device, it is essential to be guided and advised by the salesperson assigned to you. However, it is important to pay attention to the certification of the alarm system and its devices. The VESTA Alarm System, for example, has Grade 2 and Grade 3 control panels that strictly comply with current regulations. As for the anti-theft smoke generator, another key aspect is to make sure that the contents are not toxic for people, as is the case with Nebula VESTA, which complies with all the UNE certifications required for this type of device. We will also look at the expiry date to know when to renew it. Finally, we will look at the size of the area to be protected, in this way we will ensure that the cartridge will act adequately in the area to be protected. For example, with the VESTA-265 cartridge, we can cover between 100 and 130 m3. Cases of application of anti-theft smoke We can use the Nebula VESTA smoke generator device in different types of spaces, such as restaurants, shops, offices, caravans, or homes. If you have any doubts, we advise you to consult your assigned sales representative for personalized advice.

SmartRetailSec retail security system: CCTV, Access Control, IoT and Alarm
SmartRetailSec retail security system: CCTV, Access Control, IoT and Alarm
SmartRetailSec retail security system: CCTV, Access Control, IoT and Alarm

The retail sector continues generating most of its income in physical establishments, despite the pandemic situation caused by Covid-19. Meanwhile, the rate of losses attributed to theft or staff errors continues to rise. The joint implementation of CCTV, Access Control, IoT and Alarm systems has proven to be the most effective solution. For this reason, By Demes introduces the SmartRetailSec retail security system: a global solution that optimizes daily operations, improves the customer experience and allows a unified control of all security and home automation systems. The importance of security systems in shopping centers, supermarkets and stores The main cause of losses in the retail sector is due to thefts committed by customers and employees. Although most establishments currently already have a video surveillance system, it is not so common for them to be complemented with intrusion or access control systems, which significantly reduces their effectiveness in preventing theft. It is also important to consider the resources that are allocated to the different daily operations carried out by the staff, in general those operations that are more complex to automate separately, such as access control to warehouses and changing rooms, light control, control of air quality,  cold storage status, connection and disconnection of the alarm, etc. In most cases, these operations are not centralized. On the other hand, we must also consider the change of habits by the consumer, who expects an increasingly satisfactory shopping experience. That's when the implementation of home automation through IoT devices comes into play. SmartRetailSec Global Ecosystem Solution Unifying security and IoT management in the retail sector is now possible thanks to the SmartRetailSec solution. It is applicable to shopping centers, department stores and supermarkets, but also to clothing stores, restaurants and conventional stores. It includes VESTA, Grade 2 panels, sensors and IoT devices, but it is also possible to integrate and automate third-party devices with the IoT Z-Wave protocol with SmartRetailSec. Another key aspect is the integration with Dahua video surveillance cameras and the new SALTO Systems access control devices. We can automate a wide variety of functions: authorize staff to open the store by geolocation, verify the occupancy status before allowing customers to enter certain areas, or configure scenes to turn lights on and off when arming or disarming the alarm system. We can also configure an effective access control of the workers through a mobile device or tag, keep the log of the openings and control the temperature of the cold rooms or the air quality. Advanced functions with live reports to the ARC and the control center of all stores, accessible from the same mobile device. This results in costs reduction, use of less resources and employee time, and at the same time improving competitiveness.

Cold storage rooms: How to control the temperature?
Cold storage rooms: How to control the temperature?
Cold storage rooms: How to control the temperature?

Cold storage rooms are spaces that have been specially designed for manufacturing and preservation. For this application, it is necessary to offer some conditions that require professionals to look for devices and thermometers that help measure and control the temperature in an effective way. By Demes presents the solution of temperature control from VESTA, designed to protect sensitive products in cold storage rooms, freezer coolers, general storage, and others. Types of cold storage rooms First of all, there are two types of cold storage rooms: the ones for refrigeration and the freezer ones. The refrigeration chambers are also known as "positive temperature refrigeration chambers" and usually maintain the temperature between 10ºC and 0ºC, and are generally used to store fresh food. On the other hand, freezing chambers or "negative temperature refrigeration chambers" have an average range between 0ºC and -28ºC, sometimes lower, and they are more common for food freezing or preservation of biological material. In these cases, the solution from VESTA is a full and indispensable tool to control the temperature in an effective way, and can be used for the following: Food storage and preservation Storage and preservation of biological products Wineries and winemaking facilities Production of medicines Cigars cava Maintenance of server room Storage of tools and other electronic materials. Devices of control in refrigeration system from VESTA The new solution of temperature control from VESTA is the product launch of the most innovative and complete solution from By Demes for control in the refrigeration systems. It is effective in temperature ranges between +50ºC and -20ºC, it has an accuracy and reliability of ±1°C, it can be installed in refrigeration chambers, freezing chambers, and also in external areas. How does it work? The system, controlled by the main panel, such as the panel VESTA-046 or the panel VESTA-047, is directly linked with the sensor with temperature probe VESTA-158 or the compact sensor of temperature  VESTA-157. In this way, it is possible to receive information in real-time, make an exportable event log for up to 14 days and set an alarm that prevents abnormal temperatures from occurring, which could possibly damage sensitive products. But, also, it is possible to activate devices autonomously, such as switching on an emergency compressor by means of a switch.   Other advantages of these solutions for temperature control from VESTA are the simplicity and quick installation (don't require more than 8 minutes), the convenience of alerts, which can be set up through the VESTA App itself or a phone call through GSM, also their functionality, no wiring is required.
