We look for vendors with significant contributions to new technology in the fire and security industry, and with solutions that focus on quality and customers.

It all started in Germany with the pointer telegraph, which transmitted a long distance in a matter of minutes instead of hours, days, or even weeks. Today, Singapore is drawing on Siemens’ assistance to become a “smart nation” through MindSphere, the open, cloud-based operating system. The global potential is incredible and Siemens is on the ground floor!


Like any industry with a long history, Siemens has faced difficulties, such as early sales slumps and the compliance crisis. But for 170 years, they’ve demonstrated excellence in crises management and the ability to change.

They are also dedicated to training and support for clients and customers, regardless of the product or service. For example, here are two “How To” training videos from the company’s YouTube channel about the new Siemens 50 pt and 252/504 pt fire panels. In the brief videos, Jim Loftus, project manager of the FC901 Legacy Systems, and David Burns, project manager of the Cerberus® PRO Fire Alarm Portfolio, clearly explain how to operate the new panels.

These two walk-through videos demonstrate how to prepare the facility and staff with common operation, such as acknowledging and silencing an alarm, supervisory operation, trouble operation and other control features.
