Predicting How IoT and AI Will Affect the Future of Fire Systems

January 30, 2020 / Shane Clary

This month’s article concludes my discussion on what I see as the future with fire detection, notification and fire alarm systems in general. Last month I covered detectors and sensors as well as notification of an alarm to the occupants within a building. This month I will be taking a further look at notification and the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) as it may relate to installed systems.By the time you read this, the NFPA 72 Correlating Committee will have met for their review of the first draft of the 2022 edition of The National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code. Starting with next month’s article, I will be reviewing the proposed changes to this standard.
