Fire Alarm

YOUR LIFE SAFETY SOLUTION

When it comes to fire, you shouldn’t trust just anyone to keep you and your family safe. After all, finding the correct fire safety solution for you might just save your life, not to mention your home. That’s why our experienced professionals make it their number-one priority to ensure you have the most up-to-date, unobtrusive yet exemplary system possible. Simply functioning well isn’t good enough; we want your equipment to function perfectly every time.


With over 20 years of experience installing fire alarm systems, Secure IT Securities in Suffern, NY have come across every setup imaginable (both the good ones and the bad). Let us use our unparalleled experience and expertise to make sure your fire alarm system is the best possible. Think of it as an investment in your safety and the safety of your children. You wouldn’t go without homeowner’s or renter’s insurance, would you? A properly installed and functioning fire alarm is one of the cheapest, yet most effective, forms of insurance you can buy.


When you hire Secure IT Securities, our certified technicians guide you through the entire installation process. First, one of our trained techs will come to your home or business for a walkthrough, pointing out current flaws and suggesting fixes. We will then sit down with you to discuss options. We pride ourselves on not trying to upcharge; your safety is our number-one priority, not making a quick buck! Once we agree upon the right course of action and security kit, we will send our National Institute for Certification in Engineering (NICET) certified technician out to your home or business to install the equipment. Our technicians and electricians are prepared and capable of completing any job, large or small. Finally, our technicians will be with you for when the fire inspector comes to check out the work. We won’t leave until you are 100% satisfied.

Smoke Detector (KI-OSD)

The Kidde Intelligent Optica Series KI-OSD smoke detector brings advanced optical (photoelectric) sensing technology to a practical design that increases efficiency, saves installation time, cuts costs, and extends life safety and property protection capabilities. Continuous self-diagnostics ensure reliability over the long-haul, while environmental compensation helps reduce maintenance costs. Like all Kidde Intelligent Optica Series detectors, the KI-OSD is an intelligent device that gathers analog information from multiple optical sensors, converting this data into digital signals. Utilizing dual optical wavelengths combined with multiple detection angles, the KI-OSD differentiates particles that are not representative of actual smoke. Particle data is input into digital filters which feed a series of ratios removing signal patterns that are typical of nuisance sources, thus reducing unwanted alarms. To make an alarm decision, the detector’s on-board microprocessor measures and analyzes all-optical sensor readings and compares this information to preprogrammed settings.

Fire Alarm Control Panel (VS-4RD)

Kidde brand intelligent life safety systems offer the power of high-end intelligent processing in configurations that deliver uncomplicated solutions for small to mid-sized applications. With intelligent detection, electronic addressing, automatic device mapping, optional Ethernet® connectivity, and a full line of easily configured option cards and modules, these flexible systems offer versatility that benefits building owners and contractors alike. The VS1 provides one Class A or Class B intelligent device loop that supports up to 64 device addresses, and two Class B Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs). Optional Class A device wiring is available with the use of a module. The VS4provides one Class A or Class B intelligent device loop that supports up to 250 device addresses. Loop controller modules may be added in combination to expand total system capacity in 250-point increments to up to 1,000 device addresses. VS4 panels include four NACs that may be wired for either Class A or Class B operation. The RZI16-2 module adds even more capacity to VS installations by adding up to 16 conventional device circuits and two additional notification appliance circuits. This makes them ideal retrofit solutions that can accommodate new intelligent detectors, as well as existing conventional devices.

GSA-M278

The GSA-M270 and GSA-M278 series Manual Pull Stations are part of Kidde’s Signature Series system. The GSA-M270 Fire Alarm Manual Pull Stations feature our familiar teardrop shape. They are made from die-cast zinc and finished with red epoxy powder-coat paint complemented by aluminum-colored stripes and markings. With the positive pull-lever operation, one pull on the station handle breaks the glass rod and turns in a positive alarm, ensuring protection plus fool-proof operation. Presignal models (GSA-M270P) are equipped with a general alarm (GA) key switch for applications where the two-stage operation is required. The up-front highly visible glass rod discourages tampering but is not required for proper operation. Kidde’s double-action single-stage GSA-M278 station is a contemporary style manual station made from durable red-colored Lexan. To initiate an alarm, first lift the upper door marked “LIFT THEN PULL HANDLE”, then pull the alarm handle.

KI-COD

The KI-COD carbon monoxide detector brings advanced sensing technology to a practical design that increases efficiency, saves installation time, cuts costs, and extends life safety capabilities. Continuous self-diagnostics ensure reliability over the long-haul, while advanced electrochemical CO sensing technology provides performance benefits that keep occupants safe from carbon monoxide, the “silent killer”. Like all KI Series detectors, the KI-COD is an intelligent device that gathers analog information from its CO sensor, converting this data into digital signals. To make an alarm decision, the detector’s on-board microprocessor measures and analyzes sensor readings over time. Digital filters remove signal patterns that are not typical of life safety events, thus virtually eliminating unwanted alarms. The KI-COD includes an advanced carbon monoxide sensor. When the electrochemical cell reaches its end of life after approximately ten years, the detector signals a trouble condition to the control panel. Refer to the control panel documentation for specific end-of-life timing.
