In a world of unceasing innovation and advancement, legacy fire protection systems can spell trouble. Without a connected fire and life safety system, you may struggle with limited visibility into system performance – which can be costly beyond the balance sheet.
With a connected system, however, in the event of a fire or safety incident, integrated building systems can activate emergency protocols automatically and in parallel, rather than waiting for manual interventions. More than activating smoke control and fire sprinkler systems, directional lighting and signage for evacuation, first responder communications, ventilation, and even video surveillance and access control platforms can all become part of an integrated, automated fire and life safety workflow.
And that’s just the beginning of what’s possible.
A comprehensive, digital portfolio of life safety and fire servicesSiemens harnesses the power of digitalization for fire protection services to proactively help our customers improve the reliability and performance of your fire and life safety systems. By turning data into valuable insights, we leverage a systematic approach to monitoring, analyzing, optimizing, and maintaining fire alarm system performance through advanced analytics and fire services.
Many of today’s fire alarm monitoring systems use a cellular connection, rather than old phone lines, to report emergencies and get you the help you need. But due to recent changes and upgrades to cellular technology platforms (e.g., 5G), the sun is setting on 3G cellular networks. If your fire alarm monitoring service relies on 3G cellular communication, your fire protection services may be at risk.
Managing a code-compliant inspection, testing, and maintenance (ITM) program can be challenging, costly, and time-consuming. A typical building may have a dozen or more life safety and fire alarm systems, each with their own set of ITM requirements and maintained by a variety of vendors.
But by taking a strategic, holistic approach to your ITM program and partnering with a fire protection company who can take care of all your systems and fire services, you’ll spend less time and fewer resources managing your program – while also creating a smarter, safer building.

In-building communication failures and poor radio coverage can put first responders and building occupants in greater danger during an emergency. Siemens Emergency Responder Communication Enhancement System (ERCES) is one of our comprehensive fire protection services that helps maintain critical communication between dispatch centers, incident commanders, and first responders.
From routine communications to work environment conditions to crisis situations and everything in between, timely information is essential in today’s fast-paced business world. With Siemens Alarm Notifications Service (ANS) – one of our comprehensive life safety and fire services – you can quickly implement automated notifications and enhance daily communications.
A cloud-based service that complements all of Siemens fire protection services, ANS allows you to easily and cost-effectively scale up to more than 10,000 users. And, with its open architecture you can integrate new and existing third party systems such as automation, fire & life safety, security, intercom/PA, and many others. ANS also incorporates a wide range of communication modalities, so you can reach the right people – wherever they are, whatever they are doing.
Those who rely on timely and accurate information to perform their jobs in fire and life safety need more information – in more ways – than ever before. And that’s where harnessing the power of digital transformation for life safety and fire protection services plays a critical role.
From people and property to business continuity, protecting what matters most to a customer’s organization means ensuring your systems can perform at their best when they’re needed most. Siemens comprehensive portfolio of digital life safety and fire services answers the call, helping you leverage emerging technologies in ways that improve fire notification and fire protection services, fire codes and standards compliance efforts, and operational efficiencies.
