In some areas such as in sports, fire safety had in previous times been issue. One only needs to recall disasters such as the 1985 Bedford Stadium fire where 56 people had lost their lives.
Among the reasons were fire safety for sports stadiums and other, similar locations had always been a problem is that older fire detection systems such as smoke detectors cannot work reliably in such places. They can only detect fires when installed indoors with a rather limited range.
This has changed with modern fire detection sensors. Digital fire sensors are now able to do what had been impossible just one or two decades ago: they can detect fires even in very large spaces such as stadiums and they can even work outdoors.
Increasingly more sports clubs and sports venues are now installing digital fire sensors as an effective way to avoid tragedies as those in Bedford. What makes these modern fire detection systems also attractive isn’t just that they are reliable and fast when it comes to the detection of fire and smoke, but also that they can easily be integrated into any existing CCTV systems which are common anyways in sports clubs and stadiums. Ordinary video cameras can now simply be replaced with modern digital fire cameras so that the system can continue to function as before but now with the advantage to also provide state-of-the-art fire detection capability.
A digital fire sensor is also vastly outperforming any previopus types of fire detectors: They can detect fires within seconds when they occur and can even automatically summon responders to the exact location of the fire. There detection range is also much larger as fire cameras can spot fires even in the distance.
In addition that, what works for stadiums and sports clubs is of course also working for other locations including businesses and residential buildings.
