Fire detection goes mobile: The new app complements the fire detection system PYROVIEW FDS from DIAS Infrared and provides remote information and images about the current situation on site.

Preventive fire detection can only be effectively implemented by the combination of structural, plant-based and organizational steps. That’s why fire detection systems from DIAS are equipped with highly sensitive infrared cameras, which detect the ambient temperatures continuously and report alarm events of the systems to the fire department. At this year’s FEUERTRUTZ from February 21 to 22 in Nuremberg (Germany), DIAS presents at its booth 10.0.-626 the new app for Android, which complements the existing early fire detection system. In the event of a malfunction, the system can also be accessed remotely via the app and thos responsible can get an idea of the situation.

Fires can be caused by spontaneous combustion of stored materials or other effects and pose a high risk to companies and the environment. Especially in the storage of paper, waste or fuel, but also in forests or tunnels reliable facilities are required to detect fires in time and combat. With PYROVIEW FDS, DIAS Infrared has developed a fully automated early fire detection system with thermal imagers and software for a variety of application scenarios.

Now, PYROVIEW FDS has been supplemented with an app that makes it possible to connect to the fire early detection system from outside and retrieve data. These include, among other things, the live images of the infrared cameras, overview images and current status information about the system such as alarms or faults. “In addition, the system can be remotely controlled with the app,” explains Andrea Stabe, developer of the app at DIAS Infrared GmbH. For example, the pan-tilt head, on which the camera is mounted, can be controlled via the app to take a closer look at certain areas.

“The big advantage of the app is that persons responsible, no matter where they are, can immediately access the system in case of an alarm and get an idea of the situation,” says Katrin Schindler, Marketing Manager at DIAS Infrared. Before you even get there, you know exactly which problem you are dealing with or what degree of fire you have. The app is currently available for Android devices, an iOS variant is to follow.
