Fire Door Monitoring Software System

Fire Door Monitoring Software SystemIt can be tricky for businesses that operate across multiple sites to keep track of fire safety matters, especially when only a single staff member is dedicated to Health and Safety duties. Fire Door Monitor is an innovative solution to allow your nominated fire safety representative to discharge their legal responsibilities more efficiently.

Prevent People Propping Fire Doors Open

If fire doors are left propped open, it can cause a health and safety risk. They should only be used for access and left closed at all other times in order to act as an effective fire and smoke barrier. If doors are propped open then it increases the risk if there is a fire, and it could result in a fail if a fire safety inspection is undertaken by your local fire brigade.

We install magnetic catches with wireless transmitters onto each door, allowing it to be opened only for a maximum specified time before the system sends an alert by SMS and email to the nominated fire officer so they can visit the site. Full reporting tools are available, so it is possible to see which doors have been opened and for how long.

Fire Door Inspection System

We use RFID systems, with transponders being placed at each fire door. Our software manages inspection schedules and informs the responsible party when inspections are due. This means that the inspections cannot be manipulated or faked, the nominated person must have visited those doors, in order to carry out the inspection.  The software system then integrates with those inspection records to provide reporting and monitoring of the schedule of those inspections to ensure they are carried out in conformance with the Fire Safety regulations.

Compliance with Fire Safety Legislation

Not only does our Fire door monitor software tell you when doors are left open, it also monitors and maintains records of inspections carried out under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 BS 9999 which stipulates that inspections must be carried out on fire doors every six months. This means that even if the nominated fire officer is not on-site, legal duties or any other national standards can be fulfilled.

It places legal responsibility on the responsible person (which defaults to the business owner or managing director if no-one else is specified in company documents) to carry out these inspections and ensure that fire doors are kept closed and are in a serviceable condition: not locked, less than a 3mm gap around the sides, closers work properly etc.

RFID

RFIDRFID is short for “radio-frequency identification”. It is a digital technology whereby data is encoded into special RFID tags and then captured again by a reader through radio waves.

What are RFID Systems Used For?

RFID systems are, on the face of it, similar to barcodes. Data from a tag is captured by a device, and then stored in – or read from – a database. RFID has a number of advantages over barcodes when it is used for applications such as asset tracking. RFID tags can be read without needing a line-of-sight, unlike barcodes which have be intact and carefully aligned with the scanner. RFID can identify objects, collect data and enter information directly into a computer system automatically – with little to no human intervention.

How Do RFID Systems Work?

RFID systems work by using radio waves. They are made up of three main components:

  • an RFID tag,
  • an RFID reader,
  • an antenna.

RFID tags are made up of an integrated circuit and an antenna, which transmits data to the RFID reader. The reader turns the radio waves into usable data. Information from the tags is then transferred through a communications interface such as a cable, Wi-Fi or 4G to a computer system, where the data can be stored in a database for use later.

What are RFID Tags?

RFID tags (or “RFID transponders”) consist of an integrated circuit and an antenna. A protective material isn used to hold the pieces together and shield them from the environment. The casing can have other uses – for example, employee ID badges can have RFID tags embedded within them. RFID tags are available in many shapes and sizes and are categorised as either passive or active.

What are passive RFID transponders?

Passive tags are the most commonly found type. They are smaller and less expensive than active tags, but they must be “powered up” by the RFID reader itself in order to transmit data. You may have seen them used as security tags in shops.

What are active RFID transponders?

Active RFID transponders are more complex, with a built-in battery that allows them to transmit data all the time.

What are RFID Systems Used for?

RFID technology has a huge number of uses. Click on the links for examples:

Access Control RFID systems

Digitalquill is a specialist at making bespoke RFID Systems for businesses with the latest RFID technology. One of the most common uses for RFID is access control.

Access Control RFID Systems

Access Control RFID systems

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology uses electromagnetic waves to capture and read data wirelessly. Data is stored on an electronic tag that can be attached to an object. The tags can be read from several feet away using a special receiver. RFID systems are used in access control to allow only authorised personnel to pass a barrier.

RFID technology can be used in areas such as:

  • Identification of people
  • Access based security systems
  • Parking facilities
  • Gate and barrier control
  • Tracking goods

RFID Access Control Management

A very common use of RFID systems is to control door entry systems using keyfobs or ID badges with an embedded transponder. Such systems are made up of three main components:

  • RFID Tags
  • RFID Reader
  • Access Management Software

RFID Tags

Data about the person holding the ID card is electronically stored on an embedded RFID transponder.

RFID Door Reader

An antenna on the RFID reader sends radio waves to detect if there are any RFID tags within range. The reader decodes the information from the transponder and sends a data signal to the controlling software.

RFID Access Management Software

Special software reads the signal from RFID reader and either grants or rejects access to the card holder.
