Jeron Electronic Systems Communication Offerings Meet New Codes and
Enable Silent Knight’s Farenhyt Distributors to Meet Buildings’ Multiple Life
Safety Systems Demands
NORTHFORD, Conn., Jan. 28, 2014  Silent Knight by Honeywell (NYSE: HON)
today releases the Pro-Alert™ 480 Area of Rescue System to enable facilities to
meet new code requirements, and satisfy the communication needs of the United
States’ growing population of healthcare facilities with the Pro-Alert™ 610 Nurse
Call system. Both products are manufactured by Jeron and fit well into the
Farenhyt line of fire alarm and emergency communication systems, enabling
Farenhyt Distributors to offer facilities more comprehensive life safety solutions.
New changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and International
Building Code (IBC) requirements have created stronger demand for
communication systems within facilities mandated to have an area of rescue
(a.k.a. area of refuge) for those physically impaired individuals unable to
evacuate a building during emergencies. High-rise buildings, and assisted living,
office and apartment complexes, are commonly required to provide an intercomtype system to allow those awaiting help within areas of rescue to communication
with building management, first responders and/or a central monitoring station.
Unlike common intercom systems, the Pro-Alert 480 is fully-supervised, meaning
facility management will always be immediately alerted by the central station of
any system faults or issues to ensure the system is kept fully operational. The
Pro-Alert 480 Area of Rescue intercom system also offers an optional interface to
allow offsite calls.
Buildings, such as nursing homes, senior living facilities, and medical clinics
requiring a nurse call system can utilize the Pro-Alert 610 Nurse Call system to
provide instant communication between occupants and staff. The Pro-Alert 610
allows facilities to customize system alerts, offering up to 16 programmable alert
levels per room. The master units can be programmed to display a variety of
information, including high-priority calls, longest wait calls and emergency calls
for example. A unique mobile paging feature is also available to enable staff to
receive messages anywhere in the facility.
“These systems have to be well thought out and designed to the needs of the
facility,” said Jim Spooner, marketing product manager, Silent Knight. “That’s
