Inim Electronics has created a new APP for fire-fighting systems

Inim Fire is the new App created by Inim Electronics, it will be presented to the market on September 23rd for the management of automatic fire detection and alarm systems that are built around PREVIDIA series control panels (both PREVIDIA MAX and PREVIDIA Compact), will be available for both Android and iOS systems.

The Inim Fire App, aimed at both professionals (Installers/Maintenance technicians) and end users (Installation managers, Security supervisors, etc.), offers complete and prompt remote control access. Thanks to its simple, intuitive interface and the use of “push notifications”, the Inim Fire App provides an instantly understandable overview of what is happening on all the systems it is allowed to access, by simply tapping a few times on the screen it is possible to enter into the details and check the status of each element of the system.

The possibility of accessing a graphical visualization, based on navigable topographic maps with interactive icons, and the video verification function, that provides images captured by any on-site IP camera with ONVIF protocol, allow you to immediately locate the source of a report and obtain a clear understanding of its level of severity.

The App also allows you (where provided for during the system configuration phase) to interact remotely with the installation and perform operations such as silencing sounders, rearming the control panel, bypassing zones and points, activating sounders and calls etc.

In addition to an events log which provides a detailed list of all the events recorded by the control panel, the Inim Fire App, thanks to the support of the Inim Fire Cloud, also provides an “Installations registry” in which converge all the most significant automatically-recorded events (alarms, faults, bypass operations, etc.) and any events entered manually by users and maintenance technicians (such as maintenance operations, tests, fire drills, personnel training sessions, faults, etc.), each element in the “Installations registry” can be commented on by a series of notes and closed with a virtual signature that permanently archives the event.

The “Installations registry”, which can be printed out on paper and countersigned by downloading it from the Inim Fire Cloud web page, faithfully coincides with the requirements of current legislation, allowing both the professional and the end user to promptly comply with the current obligations determined by law without any particular effort.

The APP is completed by an array of functions designed for maintenance operations that allow installers, with just a smartphone in hand, to perform a guided and assisted walk test which from one point of view reduces execution times to a minimum and from another assists maintenance technicians by ensuring complete testing of all the elements of the system. The ability to store on the Cloud maintenance reports and test records completes the array of innovative functions made available to professionals and end users alike, making the new Inim Fire App a milestone on the road to the future of fire-fighting systems.

Free
From September 23rd, the Inim FireApp can be downloaded for free from iOS and Android stores and allows you to manage PREVIDIA series control panels that are connected to the Inim Fire Cloud, a service offered free of charge by Inim Electronics, all that is necessary for access is to simply connect the control panels to an Ethernet network and enter your account code.

For Professionals and End Users
The Inim Fire App is aimed at both professionals (Installers/Maintenance technicians) and end users (Installation managers, Security supervisors, etc.) and offers essential functions for secure, fast and professional management of installations tailored to suit both categories.

Remote control of installations
Thanks to its simple, intuitive interface, the Inim Fire App provides an instantly understandable overview of what is happening on all the installations it is allowed to access, simply tapping the screen allows you to view the complete details of each report.
The App allows you to navigate between the various installations associated with your account and access the details of  each individual control panel up to the point of being able to supervise and manage in full detail every single zone, detector or device.

The functions for remote control of alarm and fault communicators, timers, output groups etc., make the Inim Fire App a valuable tool for the remote management of all situations in complete security.

PUSH notifications
The Inim Fire App is capable of sending real-time push notifications to warn both users and maintenance technicians of any events recorded by a fire detection system.

Graphic Maps
In addition to its intuitive and captivating graphics, the Inim Fire App offers a graphical visualization based on navigable multiple-level topographic maps that show interactive, customizable icons to provide the instant awareness of the status of each zone, detector or element of the system. The possibility to select an icon and issue commands to the associated element as well as the opportunity to set up function keys for fast actions are definable during the installation phase, thus making the Inim Fire App a revolutionary tool for worry-free management of fire systems.

Video verification
The Inim Fire App is capable of showing on your smartphone images captured by any IP camera installed on the site, thus offering a visual aid that allows you to verify instantly, effectively and in real time the extent and effective risk of the reported danger.

In fact, thanks to ONVIF protocol management capabilities the control panels can communicate with any type of IP camera and, if necessary, control pan, tilt and zoom movements based on the location of the danger and then send the relevant image to your smartphone.

Events Log and Installations Registry
The Inim Fire App allows you to view both the events log, which contains all the events recorded in detail by the control panel, and the “installations registry” in which converge all the most significant automatically-recorded events (alarms, faults, bypass operations, etc.) and any events entered manually by users and maintenance technicians (such as maintenance operations, tests, fire drills, personnel training sessions, faults, etc.), each element in the “Installations registry” can be commented on by a series of notes and closed with a virtual signature that permanently archives the event.

The “Installation registry”, which can be printed out on paper and countersigned by downloading it from the Inim Fire Cloud web page, faithfully coincides with the requirements of current legislation, allowing both the professional and the end user to promptly comply with the current obligations determined by law without any particular effort.

Walk Test
Thanks to a revolutionary guided and assisted walk test function, once the zones to be tested have been selected, the Inim Fire App will show a list of the devices associated to each of the selected zones with the possibility for each one of lighting up LEDs to locate it, test detectors, inputs and outputs and automatically tick the tested devices. An ingenious function that allows the professional to carry out periodic test operations quickly and without risk of forgetting even a single element.

Maintenance Report Management
At the end of each periodic test or ordinary/extraordinary maintenance session, the professional will be able to compile and archive the report on the Cloud as required by current legislation (by downloading and filling in the necessary forms required by law available on the App, any other file compiled from a PC or photo of the paper document). The document archived in this way will be completed by the Cloud by adding the automatic registration of all tested devices and entered in the Installations registry in compliance with the legal obligations in force.
