Smarter protection allows you to focus on what matters

By having all elements of protection (from detection, alarming and evacuation to extinguishing, danger management and cloud) in a single, powerful and IoT-enabled system such as Cerberus PRO, you can rest assured that everything is under control and therefore focus on what matters.

At the first sign of a fire hazard, the system detects it reliably and initiates further steps. The detection technology is available for a wide range of applications and distinguishes between real and deceptive phenomena. We help you go beyond regulatory requirements while making sure unnecessary interruptions in the building are avoided.


Connecting Cerberus fire protection systems to the cloud means you gain great visibility on multiple buildings from any location. Incidents are instantly communicated, and a more proactive protection is ensured. The resulting higher responsiveness increases safety and enhances operational efficiency.

Alarming and evacuation

Addressing two senses with both acoustic and visual alarms ensures everyone takes notice. When the alarm does sound, our solutions help evacuate people to a place of safety in a quick and orderly manner along safe, smoke-free routes.

Extinguishing and suppression

In case of a fire, seconds count – but it is not only essential to react quickly and efficiently, but also that any damage to costly and sensitive equipment can be kept to a minimum. For that, it is essential to have a reliable solution tailored to individual requirements. Our advanced extinguishing portfolio comprises systems with natural or chemical extinguishing agents as well as gas/water-combined systems.

Danger management

We help you keep your building’s fire protection systems monitored and operated from a single point of control. Our danger management system addresses your specific needs while accommodating future expansions. The solution is based on an open platform for smooth integration – with a modular structure that provides both flexibility and scalability.
