Abus smoke detectors provide dual verfication

Muhlhausen, Germany

The new HSRM30000 smoke and heat detector form Abus Security Center uses a bi-sensor processor to monitor both smoke and heat, and therefore provides a doubly reliable alarm when this type of hazard arises.
This means that unlike conventional smoke detectors, it is also suitable for use in difficult locations such as kitchens and bathrooms.

The HSRM30000 can monitor an area of up to 40 m² inside a room and is equipped with a bi-sensor processor. This not only monitors whether smoke is present, but also reacts to the rise in temperature in the event of a fire. This guarantees particularly effective protection, recognising and sounding an early alarm for difficult-to-detect smouldering fires that produce little smoke, but all the more heat. At the same time, there is no chance of misdetection due to water vapour or temperature variations.

Due to its bi-sensor processor technology, the HSRM30000 is suitable for protection in bedrooms, children’s rooms and hallways, and is also ideal for use in kitchens and bathrooms. The Abus smoke and heat detector also has a self-test function that can be used at any time to check that it is working correctly.

The built-in 3-volt lithium battery has a service life of up to twelve years, making it ideal for use in private and commercial buildings. The 88 dB alarm means that the HSRM3000 gives a reliable warning in the event of smoke and heat. The detector is mounted without drilling using the simple hot-meld adhesive method, or using a simple drill-mounting procedure.

Big changes ahead for access control market

Following our recent reports on the Kaba and Dorma merger, and now with the news that Allegion plans to acquire Simonsvoss from HgCapital.  Blake Kozak, Principal Analyst for Security and Building technologies at IHS, predicts that this latest merger may again reshape the access-control market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The merger of Allegion and Simonsvoss would immediately create the second largest company in the EMEA region, after the market leader, Assa Abloy. The merged Kaba and Dorma would then rank third in the region.  But it has to be pointed out that this most recent merger still requires approval, by the German Bundeskartellamt, which prohibited a planned merger of Assa Abloy and Simonsvoss back in 2008.
