Whitepaper: Effective Techniques for Robust OT Security

WATCH: C-TEC on helping firefighters and the benefits of cloud-based solutions

C-TEC’s Hush Pro grade C fire alarm system for residential properties harnesses the cloud to fight false alarms and provide remote monitoring and situational awareness for firefighters.

Speaking at FIREX 2019 in the video below, C-TEC director Andy Scott discusses this and other products in the British-owned firm’s product range.

C-TEC recently confirmed a schedule of CPD-training events on residential fire alarm systems.

In the build-up to FIREX 2019, we spoke to Andy Green, marketing manager for C-TEC, on upgrading Hush-Pro, investing in the IoT and becoming a full systems provider. “C-TEC is a proud independent UK manufacturer of life safety electronic products,” he told us. “Whereas a lot of companies in the fire industry have merged in recent years, we are still independent and still design and manufacture all of our products in the UK. We also continue to invest heavily in new products.

“For many years we’ve been associated with making fire alarm panels, but we now manufacture full fire alarm systems including detectors, sounders and visual alarm devices under our ActiV conventional fire system brand and our CAST addressable fire system brand.”
