Software – Open or Closed Protocols?

There is a very expensive hidden cost in many fire detection systems that most people are unaware of…

…Software Ownership

Many suppliers will sell you a system, but they won’t tell you that the price does not include the software.

So, if you need to re-configure your system, service/maintain it, or carry out repairs, you can’t – unless you use that supplier.

You can’t shop around for cheaper quotes.

You can’t handle minor tasks in-house.

You’re stuck with their prices and level of service.
