Life Safety Communications: 2030's Real World Expectation

JP Plouffe  (Public Safety BDA Sales Leader, Fire Americas at Honeywell, Honeywell)

Track : Interoperability, In-Building Wireless

Format: Power Session

Vault Recording: TBD

In-building public-safety communications systems run broader and deeper than you think. IBW comms is actually part of the legacy Life Safety Communications effort: Fire Alarms, Annunciators, Strobes, Exit Lighting, Smoke detectors, and the latest technology addition, ERRCs are just part of the story. The list is actually quit long and has been guided by codes and standards for decades. To date these tried and true, somewhat old school solutions have been viewed as siloed requirements, however, technology has been increasing their performance and driving integration of their function to communicate a holistic view of a critical response scenario. IoT and Smart Building Technologies are impacting every aspect of today's commercial construction and is on a course to intersect with Life Safety Communication, sooner that we can imagine. This power session will explore the next generation of Life Safety Communication Technology and more importantly, how we as an industry will be challenged to innovate and embrace a far more integrated life safety communications platform.


1. Define the broader and deeper true mission critical life safety communications discipline
2. Understand how Life Safety Comms will integrate legacy systems and next gen IoT and wireless infrastructure.
3. Life Safety Code Harmonization success and how to replicate it moving forward with integration
4. Take away the top 5 trends in Life Safety Communications
