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.
