When it comes to commercial building fire protection, one option that you can consider is analog fire alarm systems. At ASCO Fire, we understand that choosing the ideal alarm system for your property can be challenging as there are multiple factors to be considered. Don’t worry. We are here to help. Aside from determining whether analog systems are a good fit for you or not, we can also take care of the design, installation, operational, and maintenance aspects of such systems.
What is an Analog Fire Alarm System?
Traditional fire alarm systems are typically hard-wired to each group of fire detection devices. This means that the indicating and control equipment is unable to distinguish fault and alarm conditions from individual devices in a particular group. In other words, the actual alarm decision has to be made at each device.
There are some basic similarities between traditional fire alarm systems and analog fire alarm systems. The main difference lies in how the alarm signals communicate with the central control panel. Analog systems act by receiving signals that have been transmitted via single cables that run through installed fire detection devices.

Benefits of Installing an Analog Fire Alarm System
At a glance, analog fire alarm systems are reliable, easier to maintain, and save the owner time and money while protecting their property. Analog systems are well-suited for larger commercial buildings. These systems also come with pre-alarm indication. This means that you can investigate and even resolve incidents before the fire service is contacted.
When it comes to the maintenance of your fire detectors, you will receive automatic alerts on which detectors require cleaning. This helps you avoid unnecessary cleaning, which wastes money. When you install analog systems, you never have to worry about false alarms. These systems comprise multi-criteria and multi-sensor detectors. They utilize sophisticated algorithms that allow them to respond promptly to a real fire. Other benefits that analog systems offer include stronger networking and processing power, adjustable sensitivity, and individual detector identification.
