House alarm system - advice, installation & maintenance

Home alarm systems (HAS) or fire detection systems are used to warn people in a building in the event of a fire. Home alarm systems are triggered by the activation of a blue manual detector (red manual detectors for fire alarm systems). Unlike fire alarm systems, home alarm systems are not connected to the fire brigade's transmission system, i.e. the fire brigade is not automatically alerted. Nevertheless, the system warns by employing acoustic and optical signals of danger caused by fire or smoke and indicates the location of the source of danger.

Home alarm systems are often installed in:

  • Skyscrapers
  • Dormitories and accommodation facilities
  • Sales outlets
  • Meeting places
  • Schools, day-care centres and sports facilities

There is no normative basis for home alarm systems, but association guidelines based on the installation standard for fire alarm systems.

Maintenance of a home alarm system: At least once a year, the home alarm system must be maintained by a competent person following the specifications for fire alarm control panels DIN EN 54-2 and DIN EN 54-4.
