The mobile fire system:New features for remote access via the app
Regardless of time and place, the IACmobile application delivers current information about all components of the fire alarm system directly to a smart phone or tablet. The app’s features have now been extended for you.
Proactive information as a Push message or e-mail
With immediate effect, users navigating the application can activate a screen with important new features. This is how you will learn about pending security updates or new web service platform features at any time. Simply click on the gearwheel icon to open the news screen.
The notification service has also been expanded. Previously, there were automatic notifications of alarms and faults. Messages on the subjects of servicing and connection status can now be activated as well. This is how users learn about pending servicing periods on the web service platform and immediately see whether the connection between the system and the web service platform has been lost. The proactive information is available at your discretion as a Push message or as an e-mail. E-mails enable you to track or archive messages in the long term, a Push display guarantees that the information is visible immediately on your smartphone.
Geo Area for operation with pinpoint accuracy
The second major innovation of the app provides enhanced security: The Geo Area now controls and documents, in a visually appealing manner, the remote operation of a fire alarm system. A map shows the – previously defined – approved area for remote operation. Outside this area, information display is still always possible. This security function prevents unrestricted remote access.
The geographic restriction on remote access is stipulated by the responsible authorities in some European countries – this can be sensible even setting aside security considerations.
There are also visual changes to our app. Observant users will perhaps note the revised icon design – we are also continuing to develop IACmobile for you on all levels.
