CHICAGO, Illinois (June 22, 2015) Tyco SimplexGrinnell, a leader in fire and life safety, is offering hands-on demonstrations at the NFPA Expo of advanced SIMPLEX fire alarm panels and cloud-based applications that combine to enhance protection, improve business outcomes, and increase the overall value delivered to customers.

Tyco SimplexGrinnell’s booth (#801) at the NFPA Expo, being held June 22-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago, has been developed around the theme of Solving Safety. For Life. Everything at the booth, including product and solutions demonstrations, focuses on the company’s ability to leverage technology, resources and expertise to solve the biggest and most challenging problems that customers face today in protecting life and property and operating their business or enterprise.

“We want attendees to come away with a strong understanding of how Tyco advances safety and protection while providing more value to end-user customers, contractors, and architects and engineers. We are committed to helping them fulfill their core mission, reduce costs and achieve better business outcomes,” said Maureen Lally, Vice President of Marketing, North America Installation & Services at Tyco. “Together we can solve their toughest challenges.”


Product and Solutions Demonstrations

In support of the booth theme, Tyco SimplexGrinnell will demonstrate how its advanced technologies and deep industry expertise are transforming the design, installation, maintenance and overall value of fire and life-safety systems in an increasingly connected world.

SIMPLEX ES panels enable remote diagnostics to increase uptime and resolve problems more quickly, while supporting self-testing of notification appliances to improve operational efficiency, minimize disruptions and reduce life-cycle costs. The panels are also built with forward/backward compatibility that leverages existing life-safety investments while providing a cost-effective migration path to newer technology platforms.

Here’s an overview of the products, solutions and technologies being displayed in the Tyco SimplexGrinnell booth:


Advanced Fire Alarm Panels:

o    SIMPLEX 4100ES: An advanced, Internet-enabled fire alarm control panel, the SIMPLEX 4100ES meets the needs of large, networked sites such as college campuses, multi-building hospitals and high-rise commercial properties. The 4100ES panel is easier and less costly to install, commission and service, and results in lower costs for customers over the life of the system.

o    SIMPLEX 4007ES:  A small, expandable fire alarm panel, the SIMPLEX 4007ES offers features and functionality normally associated with large systems. The newest panel in the SIMPLEX family, the 4007ES is designed specifically for small to mid-size projects such as elementary schools, strip malls, restaurants and medical office buildings. It is ideal for new addressable installations as well as retrofits and upgrades to enable the migration of conventional systems to newer technology platforms.


Cloud-based Applications:

o    TrueInsight Remote Service: This advanced technology, part of our comprehensive suite of Internet-based eServices solutions, saves time, resources and money by providing remote diagnostics for SIMPLEX ES fire alarm systems. TrueInsight enables predictive service capabilities, such as the identification of almost-dirty smoke detectors, to increase uptime, speed the resolution of system issues, and make system maintenance easier and more cost effective.


Addressable Notification Technology:

o    SIMPLEX TrueAlert ES: This addressable notification technology is easier and less costly to install, simpler to commission, and provides exceptional protection. The revolutionary self-testing capabilities of TrueAlert ES appliances enable building owners to test their systems at any time of the day or night – without interrupting daily operations.
