Villas and Holiday Resorts Wireless Fire Detection – Handpicked Solutions by Eurofyre


Villas and holiday resorts are a high-end alternative to traditional hotels or hostels. These types of accommodation provide luxury dwelling for holiday makers all over the world. They are usually self-contained, high-end two or more bedroom apartments with private kitchen and bathroom facilities. However, they can also provide a home-way-from-home, in a holiday setting, for permanent or semi-permanent residents.

VIllas are often private and independent luxury lodgings in secluded and peaceful  locations with private outdoor areas and swimming pools. However, they are also often found in holiday resorts where neighbouring villas share a communal swimming pool and a number of other on-site amenities such as gyms, restaurants and bars.

Wireless Fire Detection

Wireless fire detection has come a long way in recent years. Advances in wireless technology means that it can now provide all the benefits and reliability of hardwired fire detection systems, but with almost wire-free installation.

Wireless fire detection systems can be delivered quickly, with minimal disruption and without inconveniencing holiday makers. Modern wireless fire detection systems can also be combined with new or existing hardwired fire detection to create a hybrid system that provides the best of both worlds.

Wi-Fyre Xenos

Wi-Fyre Xenos removes the need for complex cable networks and all of the challenges that come with them. This drastically reduces installation time and enables a fire detection system to be installed in just a matter of days.

A Xenos system survey can be carried out during the design stage to determine the exact wireless infrastructure required for the system to operate efficiently. This means precise planning, equipment requirements and costs are guaranteed.

Once the survey has been completed, devices can be pre-programmed away from the holiday resort to reduce installation time and the number of engineers required for installation, further reducing costs and helping to meet deadlines.

Wi-Fyre Xenos wireless fire detection systems are fully certified to the relevant EN54 standards and offer the highest performing range of fire sensing and notification to provide the best possible solution for protecting villas and holiday resorts from fire.

Wireless Architecture

A Wi-Fyre Xenos system consists of at least one Xenos Translator Module which is used to create the unique wireless infrastructure and manage protocol communications with the fire alarm control panel. Each translator can manage up to 128 Xenos wireless devices. 

Xenos Expander Modules can be used to expand the wireless network, with each expander able to extend the range of the network by up to 1km and increase the stability and continuity of the system.

When used in a holiday resort, an expander can be installed in each villa to relay information back to a Translator Module connected to a fire alarm panel in the resort security room or reception.

The user can lock the translator module with a password to prevent unauthorised access and avoid residents tampering with the system.
