The leisure and hospitality industry covers a broad category of fields within the service industry. This includes areas such as lodging, food and beverage services, event planning, theme parks, transportation and other tourism oriented industries.
Leisure and hospitality facilities are located all around the world, are often open to the public and can welcome thousands of visitors every day. Like any business open to the public, leisure and hospitality industries are required by law to keep their occupants safe; this includes having suitable and reliable fire detection in place.
Leisure facilities are business critical. Any downtime caused by installation, maintenance or upgrading of fire detection systems can result in a loss of income. Therefore, the chosen fire detection solution must be quick to install and cause as little disruption to the day-to-day operation of the business as possible.
Wireless Fire Detection
As their name suggests, wireless fire detection systems provide a (relatively) wire-free fire detection solution. This vastly reduces the extent of cabling that is required to install an effective and reliable fire alarm system. Reduced cabling enables wireless fire detection to be installed quickly, discreetly and with minimal disruption to a property or business.
Current wireless technology also allows wireless fire detection technology to be integrated with new or existing hardwired fire detection systems to create a hybrid solution, thus creating a cost-efficient solution.
Wireless or hybrid detection systems can be easily expanded or upgraded, using wireless devices, and are easy to maintain and very easy to install.
Wi-Fyre Xenos systems are extremely quick to install. The wireless infrastructure required for the system to operate efficiently can also be predetermined by conducting a Xenos system survey, making installation even quicker.
A complete Wi-Fyre Xenos system can be programmed, configured and tested, before arriving on site, to reduce installation time. This allows for precise planning, exact equipment requirements and accurate costs to be calculated, and minimises the impact on the day-to-day operation of the building.
Wi-Fyre Xenos is fully certified to the relevant EN54 standards and offers the highest performing range of fire sensing and notification to provide the best possible solution for protecting leisure and hospitality facilities from fire.
Wi-Fyre Xenos systems consist of at least one Xenos Translator Module. Each translator module manages up to 128 Xenos wireless devices. The translator module creates the unique wireless infrastructure and manages protocol communications with the fire alarm control panel. Xenos Expander Modules can also be used to extend the range of the network by up to 1km per module and increase the stability and continuity of the system.
Handpicked Products for Leisure & Hospitality
Wi-Fyre Xenos is suitable for most leisure and hospitality facilities and provides a relatively wire-free, cost-effective fire detection solution. For this type of building a Wi-Fyre Xenos system will typically include the following components:
Addressable Fire Alarm Panel
These panels are expandable from 1 to 2 loops and are supplied with 2 onboard sounder circuits, 20 programmable zonal LEDs with slide-in labels and 25 system LEDs for information purposes. Each loop can power up to 6 Wi-Fyre Xenos Translators.
The Advanced MxPro 5 1-4 Loop Addressable Fire Alarm Panel is fully expandable from one to four loops and has four onboard sounder circuits, 20 programmable zonal LEDs and 25 system LEDs for information purposes.
Wireless Translators & Expanders
The Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Translator module is the main component of a Wi-Fyre Xenos intelligent hybrid fire detection and alarm system. When connected to a compatible loop, the Xenos Translator Module can wirelessly link up to 128 wireless field devices to the fire alarm system.
Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Expanders provide a convenient method to increase the radio communication range by relaying the information to other expanders or directly to wireless field devices. This allows the user to create large fully-wireless configurations or to add wireless devices into areas where cabling for translators is not possible.
Elmdene STX power supplies are designed for EN 54 compliant fire systems and are certified to EN 54-4:1997, A1:2002 and A2:2006. They provide a full-rated current at 27.6V DC with additional current for battery charging and support intelligent battery charging and monitoring using Elmdene’s EcoCharge technology. These units also feature battery deep discharge protection in the event of a prolonged mains failure.
Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Optical Smoke Detectors use dual optical smoke detection technologies and algorithms for improved performance whilst maintaining the highest levels of false alarm rejection.
Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Heat Detectors are designed to give the best possible warning of fire in locations where smoke detection technology is not suitable. They can be configured for either high-temperature or rate-of-rise heat detection.
Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Sounder Bases can be used as a stand-alone notification device (with a blanking cap) or as a combined detection and alarm device when fitted with a Xenos detector. They have 32 recognised primary and secondary sounder tones and four levels of volume adjustment.
The Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Sounder VAD base is a high-performance device that incorporates an EN54-23 compliant visual alarm device (VAD) to alert people in the event of a fire.
Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Manual Call Points have a resettable plastic element. Once the unit has been activated, it can simply be reset using the key provided. The unit includes a transparent cover that protects it from accidental activation and there is a weatherproof enclosure available for outdoor use.
The Wi-Fyre Xenos Wireless Input Module offers a single, fully-monitored input circuit to provide simple integration of third party equipment with the fire alarm system.
Wireless Site Survey
It is essential to conduct a wireless survey prior to installation to not only ensure that the alarm system will operate efficiently, but to speed up installation time.
A Wi-Fyre Xenos survey kit is available from Eurofyre to make carrying out a site survey at your hospitality or leisure facility quick and easy. The kit provides all the equipment that is needed to test channels and frequency bands that will be used. The option to hire a complete survey kit (UK only) makes the process even more cost-effective.
Wireless Remote Programming Support
Programming Xenos devices off-site reduces installation time, the number of engineers required for installation and, ultimately, the overall cost of installation.
Eurofyre has a unique understanding of the challenges of programming on-site; difficult access, multiple trades working in the same area, insufficient workspace and more. Therefore, we offer programming support to ensure you can make good use of the benefits off-site programming provides.
