|Synergy® enabled EST3 Integration
The EST3 control panel is the backbone of the Synergy® enabled integrated system. Before Synergy-enabled EST3, listing agencies required that fire detection and security functions remain separate building elements. GE tackled this regulatory bottleneck from a whole new angle: by demonstrating that all equipment–security, life safety, and access control–can perform to the same high standards of reliability and survivability. Only GE proved to be up to this task. Its impact on the way buildings are protected cannot be underestimated.
Consider the huge cost benefits of motion sensors sharing the same wiring and power supplies as smoke detectors; the efficiency of a single point of monitoring and control for both security and fire alarm functions. Consider the effectiveness of using EST3's integrated audio to assist occupants during a fire–and deter intruders during a breach of security, and consider the flexibility of programming life safety and security functions with a single tool. Only Synergy can deliver the cost benefits of shared resources while at the same time retaining autonomy among functions–ensuring that there is no compromise when it comes to security or life safety performance.
The monitoring and management power of Synergy-enabled EST3 is equally extraordinary. With the ModCom Digital Communicator you get central station, pager, and dial-up communications in one flexible package. Locally, the innovative Keypad Display provides notification of security events, is used to arm and disarm security partitions, and even doubles as a fire alarm remote annunciator. Meanwhile, the FireWorks Graphical Interface acts as a single point of monitoring and control that maps a vivid and detailed picture of your facility's status right down to the individual device–in real time.
Survivability of the security function under Synergy is second to none, thanks to EST3's unstoppable peer-to-peer network. Engineered to endure raging fires and other catastrophic events, this network distributes communications responsibility among all its nodes, ensuring that system-wide fire and security functions will not be affected by isolated equipment failures.
Whether it's a new installation or the expansion of an existing system, synergy enabled EST3 merges the best technologies of two fields into a powerful blend of performance and reliability–more powerful than either fire or security individually. We call that Synergy
