FireVu IP Smoke, Flame and Thermal Multi Detector

Using Video Smoke Detection and our patented* Flame Detection technology, the FireVu Multi Detector identifies the presence of smoke, flame and heat at source to deliver an industry leading solution for immediate fire detection.

Unaffected by airflow or stratification it delivers reliable detection even outside or in large voluminous spaces, providing a fast, accurate and very early warning to the presence of fire or rising temperatures outside normally expected levels.

The FireVu system enables operators to immediately raise an alarm and take appropriate action either on-site or through remote monitoring.

*FireVu holds patents for its flame detection algorithm in the UK (GB2535409B), Europe (EP3080788B1) and the USA (US9530074B2).

Why FireVu?

  • Advanced file streaming protocol developed specifically for Video Surveillance, rather than generic Web Media protocols.
  • PAR file format video storage enables immediate playback across multiple channels with complete time synchronisation and allows storage of additional information such as event data and analytic streams.
  • Closed IP hardened management layer provides unparalleled, automatic security, automatic discovery of NetVu Connected products and an easy to use drag and drop allocation format.
  • Comprehensive event handling driven by physical interfaces, metadata or custom scripts, including active or inactive reporting and MQTT integration.
  • Embedded Meta data support with processing within the camera, server or viewing software and offering the functionality to deliver a total Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) solution, increasing timesaving, maximising efficiency benefits and automated risk reduction.
  • Bespoke PowerScripts deliver advanced processing of real time data, activity detection and other system extensions.
  • Compliant with PSTI and NDAA cyber protocol requirements.

Key Features

  • 16 independent zones for each for heat, smoke and flame detection for flexible application.
  • Dynamic zone masking capabilities allow specific conditions to be excluded whilst remaining monitored.
  • Two separate sets of detection parameters for different time periods or operational processes.
  • Programmable temperature detection thresholds to differentiate warnings from alarms.
  • Alarm reporting using on-board relays and/or monitored loop operation.
  • Alarm inputs for systems integration.
  • Internal video and data recording provide post-event forensic analysis both locally and remotely over a secure internet link.
  • Available with a pre-fitted fire-retardant cable housed in an armoured cable sheath with M20 swivel glands.
  • Dual layer smoke detection analytic detects accumulating ambient smoke as well as smoke plumes.
  • Unique colour and intensity-based flame detection analysis results in high detection rate and minimised false triggers.
  • The FireVu Multi-Detector is suitable for internal and external flame detection with zero false positives.
  • Secure video alarm transmission enables visual verification of incidents and enhanced situational awareness through our Enterprise Observer Software.
  • Easy integration with current and legacy fire alarm control panels (FACP).
