Wi-Fyre, the product of choice for ‘flexible’ wireless fire detection integration and control

Wireless fire detection and fire alarm systems have proven to be an important, flexible solution for many owners, architects, specifiers, installers and fire professionals for well over 2 decades, with each decision to choose wireless in place of traditional hard-wired technology being made for specific reasons – accessibility, speed of installation, to minimise building disruption and to counter architectural issues.

Wi-Fyre Wireless Devices

Until recently, wireless technology has only been available as a full, system-based solution, making it difficult or impossible to specify or combine the true strengths and economies of the two available technologies, hard-wired and wireless.

Wi-Fyre Wireless Devices

Wi-Fyre, a new development from Eurofyre Limited, has been designed to eliminate this barrier, whilst building on traditional key- strengths to make wireless device integration and control more flexible than ever before - allowing hardwired and wireless detection technologies to co-exist seamlessly in appropriate proportions, irrespective of the type, age or technology of the existing ‘host’ hard-wired system.

This approach leaves the system designer free to use wireless devices where and when necessary, in order to provide complete protection in the most professional, convenient and cost effective way possible. Naturally, it also allows smaller, simple ad-hoc system add-ons to existing systems to be completed without detailed planning or building disruption, and in the minimum of time and fuss.

Wi-Fyre requires no special tools, programs or PC connections to program or commission as it has its own built-in user interface which, together with a spare wireless detector base or survey-head, can be used to conduct and complete a pre-requisite wireless site-survey.


Universal Compatibility Icon

Universal compatibility

Whether you are planning a new installation or have an existing fire detection and alarm system to extend, Wi-Fyre may be the perfect solution, particularly if access and time is a key limiting factor.

You can benefit by choosing to use Wi-Fyre in many ways. The following modes are user selectable and are all available on a single, standard product platform. We have thought carefully about system integration and there are 6 individual modes of operation to choose from:

6 modes of operation:

Conventional

Connected to form all or part of an existing Conventional zone and/or sounder circuit.

User Friendly Icon

Engineer friendly

Our goal from the beginning was to create a user friendly experience for both the engineer and end-user. Simple configuration and maintenance through a highly intuitive menu structure allows Wi-Fyre to perform tasks such as adding, removing or viewing the status of a wireless device in a minimal amount of button presses.


Survey Icon

Integral survey mode

Whether you are the installer or specifier, a site survey is essential prior to installation. This will not only speed up the time taken to complete installation and commissioning, but will ensure that a reliable, trouble-free system is in place afterwards without any surprises.

A Wi-Fyre survey is carried out using a standard LCD Transponder together with a purpose designed Wireless Survey-head. For consistency, the test-head has an identical performance to that of a standard wireless detector base and is fitted with an 8-way colour coded rotary LED array to indicate the signal strength received at the Transponder from its current location. Why not give our demonstration below a try?

The looks

Because wireless technology requires batteries, it makes it much harder to design a product that will not only look good, but is also small enough in size to be aesthetically pleasing. The looks of the Wi-Fyre products complement our hard-wired ProFyre range of fire detection equipment. From the smoke detector head to the wall mounted horn sounder, we believe the looks compliment any building or environment.

Typical Applications

Existing Installations

Existing Applications

Wireless fire detection is the perfect choice for additional protection to existing installations. It can reduce the installation time and also prevent massive disruption to people and building fabric. Each transponder can communicate with up to 30 individual field devices, which means you can easily and cost-effectively add only a few additional wireless devices, or up to 30 at a time.


New Installation - Hybrid Systems

Hybrid Systems

A hybrid system allows you to mix both wireless and hard-wired devices together within the installation. Using the ProFyre addressable system combined with Wi-Fyre gives you total flexibility.


Outbuildings

Outbuildings

Wi-Fyre can simply be added to your existing fire alarm system and wireless devices can be installed to areas such as plant-rooms, garages, green-houses and storage areas, which will then seamlessly connect to the Wi-Fyre transponder (Range dependant).


Historic Buildings

Historic Buildings

Historic buildings, buildings with high and ornate ceilings, such as churches, and listed properties normally prohibit cabling throughout. Therefore wireless connectivity becomes an obvious choice. 


Temporary systems and premises

Temporary Systems & Premises

The name says it all. Why install a hard-wired system into premises that may not need a permanent solution? Wi-Fyre can be quickly deployed and then be easily re-located to another temporary environment as many times as you want and, with the easy to use menu structure, commissioning is simple!

Modes

Conventional Mode

Wi-Fyre has been designed to be electrically compatible with most modern diode and non-diode based conventional panels and field devices, whilst at the same time allowing wireless field devices to share the fault monitoring capabilities of the conventional control panel. Faults reported by the wireless interface are non-latching and it is not necessary to perform any local reset or silence operations following the activation of an automatic detector or manual call point. Alarm and fault conditions transferred to the conventional control panel by the wireless interface are collective. However, individual devices can still be further diagnosed at the Wi-Fyre transponder, which is fully addressable.

Conventional Mode


Addressable Mode (Collective)

This mode requires the host addressable fire detection and alarm system to have a compatible conventional zone monitor unit and/or sounder circuit controller available, together with a local 9 - 38Vdc, battery backed and monitored power source (15mA @24V DC minimum).

Addressable Mode


ProFyre 2-Wire Addressable Mode

For complete system flexibly, a zone/loop powered Wi-Fyre transponder can be connected at any point on the ProFyre T8 2-wire addressable system wiring, enabling matching ‘wireless’ detector, call points, sounders or interfaces to be seamlessly connected to the wired system. This means that, for the first time, wireless devices can now be specified and used on an ‘as-needed basis’ on a simple 2-wire conventional system, without the need for additional power supplies and associated wiring.

ProFyre 2-Wire Mode


ProFyre Addressable Mode

When connected directly to the loop or zone wiring of a ProFyre addressable or analogue addressable control panel, the transponder will act as a seamless analogue-addressable gateway, enabling data and control to take place directly between the panel and individual wireless field devices, with wireless field devices behaving and appearing just like hard-wired devices. In this mode, power is taken from the loop itself and there is no need for a local power supply.

ProFyre Addressable Mode


Standalone Mode

In standalone mode the Wi-Fyre transponder is transformed into a basic, menu driven control and indication panel, capable of displaying events locally and allowing fault and alarm conditions to be acknowledged, silenced and reset. This mode is intended for residential use only and must not be used in commercial systems. Power to the transponder must be provided from a Wi-Fyre mains derived power supply unit, which is monitored, battery backed and will provide a minimum of 72 hours standby power in the event of mains failure.

Standalone Mode


Reflective Mode (Future availability)

When operating in ‘conventional mode’, it is also possible to use a Wi-Fyre transponder together with one or more field mounted I/O units to wirelessly repeat inputs to outputs, and/or outputs to inputs. This, for example, will allow two systems to be wirelessly interconnected, provided that the wireless devices are within range. In this mode, wireless inputs and outputs are non-latching.
