BOSCH – FCP-500 SERIES SMOKE DETECTORS
Top-quality smoke detectors no longer have to ruin carefully designed interiors. Bosch Security Systems’ flush-mounted FCP-500 Series detectors virtually disappear into their environment and they can even be color-matched to most ceilings. Dual “virtual” chambers and an optional carbon monoxide sensor provide a high level of protection while virtually eliminating unwanted alarms. The detector automatically compensates for dirt buildup on the lens and it signals the panel when dirty or completely blocked by a foreign object. For more information, please contact Bosch Security Systems, Inc. at 800-298-0096 or visit www.boschsecurity.us.
