What are Wireless Fire Alarms?
A traditional hard-wired alarm system requires direct, physical connection to its wire network in order to operate correctly. This necessitates trenching, drilling, and a substantial amount of effort in order to pull off. A wireless alarm system, however, operates via radio waves. Each alarm is interconnected with your entire fire protection system, and connection can be made all throughout your entire facility—this includes between buildings—without any hard wiring at all.

Wireless fire alarm systems circumvent many of the complications that older fire alarm systems create. They also offer a substantial number of additional benefits, including:
- Much simpler maintenance and repair – Without a large network of wiring and components to contend with, only the alarm systems themselves need servicing.
- Faster alarm response times – Radio wave communication is nearly instantaneous, ensuring an immediate response if a fire or the presence of smoke is detected.
- Easy, more cost-efficient installation – Save on the cost of trenching, drilling, and the large amount of hardware needed for other fire alarm types.

Wireless fire alarms use radio waves, not wiring, to operate. You can connect throughout your fire alarm system, even between buildings, using wireless fire alarms. Here are some frequently asked questions Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia property owners ask us about wireless.
Q: Do I need an interconnected system if I have fire alarms in every room?
A: The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says the majority of deaths occur in rooms separate from where the fire started – meaning those individuals could have gotten out sooner if they’d had better warning. Interconnected wireless alarms let you know about a fire sooner, so you can evacuate before smoke or flame registers with an in-room alarm.
And while residential fires claim the most lives, industrial fires incur millions of dollars in property damage each year. On average, industry-related fires each year from 2014 to 2018 were:
- 27,418 – Outside/special
- 22,401 – Storage
- 18,972 – Mercantile/business
- 15,984 – Assembly
- 6,946 – Unclassified
- 6,719 – Healthcare/detention
- 5,270 – Manufacturing
- 4,763 – Educational
- 2,925 – Industrial/agricultural
Q: Do I still need fire alarm inspections with a wireless system?
A: Yes. Wireless fire alarms are an important step in protecting lives and property, but regular fire alarm inspections and testing remain critical. The main reason is to save lives, but here are other important reasons you need fire alarm inspections:
- Insurance carriers may reject damage claims without proof of annual fire alarm inspections.
- Liability for potential injuries or loss of life may exist without proof of “diligence” in keeping your fire alarm system functional.
- The alarm’s information delivery process tells first responders where the fire is located. It needs to be tested regularly.
- You could be fined for failing to comply with fire safety codes.
Q: If I lose internet, do I lose my wireless fire alarms?
A: Some wireless alarms use VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) or internet, but we use radio waves, the most reliable for connectivity. Radio frequencies remain intact when the internet – or electricity – goes down.
Q: Why are wireless fire alarms better?
A: The most important reason is speed. Wireless fire alarms notify occupants almost immediately and usually much more quickly than traditional fire alarms.
Wireless is also preferred because traditional fire alarm systems require physical connections. The installation is more invasive (drilling, trenching, etc.), with traditional systems, and there are more things that can go wrong “behind the scenes.” Wireless alarms have none of these issues.
