Fire Door Monitoring

Use Casesvg>

Brief: I want a fire door monitoring feature that will sound an alert if a fire door is kept open.

A fire door has the task of securing openings in fire-retardant or fire-resistant walls against the passage of fire. Fire protection doors can only fulfil their function if they are kept closed or if they automatically close in the event of a fire. Therefore, they must never be wedged or tied open!

With Loxone the open state of the doors can be monitored – enabling effective fire door monitoring. In the case of an open fire door the Miniserver sends a message to inform the relevant parties.

Solution: Using TTS (Text-to-Speech) to deliver an alert as part of fire door monitoring.

A Door & Window Contact Air from Loxone, gives you fire door monitoring as the open status of fire protection doors can be seen easily. In our example, the Miniserver uses TTS to send a message via the Music Server as soon as the fire door is open for more than 3 minutes. You can also choose another type of notification if you want. Either via a push notification in the Loxone App or via Mailer or Caller Service if you don’t have a Music Server integrated into your Loxone system.
