FACU - Fire Alarm Control Unit

The first steps on setting everything up is to have your FACU set up.
The FACU is used to control your network of fire alarms that are configured to it.

To Setup

Follow these steps to setup your FACU.
  1. Rez out the "[RR] FAS FACU".
  2. Right Click and go into the object's contents.
  3. Edit the notecard "Application.Config".
  4. Enter an Alarm ID. (This is used to link alarms together).
  5. Enter a group setting.


Operation

Suppression

If Suppression is on, and a Detector has a fire signal sent, Suppression will activate. It will not activate for a Pull Station Activation.

Reset

Resetting your FACU will turn everything off in the system and rearm it.
When you're done with the alarms and don't need them on anymore, this is what you should press to reset them back to Normal Status

Drill

Don't you love when your employees see you heading towards that alarm panel? DRILL TIME
When you do a drill on the Annunciator, it will not send a tone out on Discord/Pagers

Lighting

You can manually turn on the lights via this button on the panel. They will auto turn on when a alarm goes off.

Doors/Egress

If you have a Relay setup for the Gentek IntelliDoors, this will toggle weather or not a door unlock signal is sent upon a alarm.

These only work with Gentek IntelliDoors Home, Commercial, Industrial, Glass and Alarmed that are versions 3.0.0 and later.

Pull Station

The pull station is used to set off the alarms in case of an emergency.
Make sure this is out in the open or people might burn.

  5. Changing the sounds can be accomplished by replacing the sounds inside the Bell/Buzzer with your own named "DRILL" and "FIRE".

  2. Configure your AlarmID as appropriate, there are no other configurable variables at this time.
  3. It will detect HD Fires and anything else named "SMOKE".

  3. Place the List of Doors you wish to unlock when a alarm goes off in the notecard as well, separating them with commands. DoorID1,DoorID2,MyFrontDoor,WeirdRoom


API

For any techies out there, I've included a very basic API for you. It doesn't give all the specifics and stuff like the system gives components made by Red Robot(It's simply to allow us to create proprietary components that have more features), but nevertheless, I feel any decent system in SL should have a API nowadays as should any software in General.

You can listen on channel 69421 for the following commands prefixed by your Alarm ID and a |

- ALARM = Means the system is in an Alarm State from a Pull Station or a Smoke Detector. When a 3rd party modification receives this, a internal boolean should be set to TRUE and the device should not accept any more fire commands until a RESET command is received. This will not be triggered with a drill.

- RESET = The System has been reset, any third party modifications should reset as well.

- SILENCE = The System has been silenced, but is still in Alarm Mode.
