Integration of Hekatron smoke alarms with Genius Port: Hekatron offers the Genius Port for its wirelessly networked smoke alarms, via which the alarm messages are also available online and on the smartphone.
The smoke alarms can now be integrated directly into digitalSTROM via the Genius Port and a new server app. This automatically triggers a fire alarm that switches on all luminaires in the digitalSTROM system or opens escape routes by opening blinds and shutters. Compared to the conventional integration of smoke alarms via SW-AKM sensor terminals, this solution offers the following innovations:
- No additional digitalSTROM terminal block is required.
- In the event of a fire alarm, connected Sonos loudspeakers automatically inform the user in which room the smoke alarm was triggered.
- The alarm can be muted by clicking on the 'leave home' or 'panic' push-button. This mutes both Sonos and the co-triggering smoke alarms so that only the triggering smoke alarm beeps. Only the second click on the 'leave home' or 'panic' push-button switches off the fire alarm within the digitalSTROM system.
- To connect the smoke alarms, the 'Hekatron Control' app must be installed on the digitalSTROM server and the Genius Port connected to it. The devices are thus integrated in the configurator and can be assigned to the respective room. The desired voice message including behavioural instructions in the event of an alarm can be adapted in the app in the 'Voice messages' tab if required.
