Keltron Blog

Welcome

We are pleased to welcome you to the new Keltron blog. With more than 55 years of experience in the fire and life safety industry, we’ve learned a lot and thought that our partners, customers and industry colleagues might benefit from what we know.

Because the Keltron team has such a wide range of expertise, we’d like to share it in this new blog. You will find tidbits of information about code compliance, risk management, new technologies and new ideas for using new technologies. Let us know what you think →

Face-to-Face

By Lisa Korklan, VP of Marketing

It’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, our customers, our partners or our industry colleagues. Sure, we’ve seen everyone on Zoom, made tons of telephone calls and sent out more emails than we could have ever imagined but it just isn’t the same as face-to-face conversation.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this and how important it is to have a good balance between knowing individual details and understanding how they fit into the overall situation. Kind of like not only hearing what a person is saying but understanding the overall issue.

That’s also true of fire alarm monitoring, dispatching and reporting. If you manage a large, multi-building campus, facility or complex, it’s important to be able to know both the details of individual events as they happen and at the same time, get a big-picture view of what is happening throughout the facility.

Keltron’s solutions provide our customers with exactly that – lots of whatever detail is needed about their alarm systems within the context of their overall facility. We call it situational awareness. More like a face-to-face discussion instead of a Zoom meeting.

Call us and we’ll visit. We will listen to your issues, consider what you have, and help you determine how we can solve your alarm management issues.

The Gift of Time

By Denise Pappas, Executive Director

There’s a story that tells of a young man visiting his older neighbor. Over the years, they become good friends. When his neighbor passed away, he left a box for his young friend with a note that said, “thank you for giving me the best gift over the years”. Curious as to what was in the box, he opened it to find a watch with the note, “Your time”.

While thinking about the best gifts to give our family and friends, this story rings true – especially at this time of year – time is always the best gift.

In the world of fire and life safety where moments are like hours, time is also the best possible gift. For the more than 50 years since its inception, Keltron has been focused on this concept. We pioneered digital alarm management and our solutions are designed to provide their owners with the fastest, most accurate and most reliable fire and life safety alarm management information. An essential attribute of our life safety event management systems is their ability to aggregate disparate fire alarm systems to provide our customers with a single view into all alarm activity at their campus or facility.

When time is crucial, it is important to notify the right people to respond to the situation. Knowing that the first few moments of any fire or life safety crisis are critical and immediate response can have a dramatic impact on the overall outcome, we developed Keltron LS-50 Mobile Alarm Notifications.

Using the Keltron LS-50 mobile application, owners of a Keltron Alarm Management System can notify key personnel on their cell phone, tablet or computer within two seconds of an alarm. The application also provides the flexibility to completely customize who gets what information. For example, everyone can get an emergency notification of a fire alarm, but only selected personnel will also receive trouble or supervisory alarms. Managers and other stakeholders can also monitor the system and can see who responds to an emergency and what actions they are taking.
