We are excited to announce that the team at Strategic Connections is improving safety in buildings across Raleigh, Charlotte, Winston-Salem, and Myrtle Beach through installing Bi-Directional Amplifiers by Honeywell. Bi-directional amplifiers (BDAs), also known as signal boosters, are used to strengthen radio signals given off from public safety radio repeaters. This provides improved radio communication throughout every part of your building, ensuring first responders and emergency personnel can communicate both with others in the building and crews outside.
Improved Safety Through the Entire Building
The number one benefit of a Bi-directional Amplifier is improved safety for people in your building and first responders. In the event of a fire or other emergency, first responders have to know the conditions throughout the building and even outdoor conditions in order to safely enact protocols, including evacuation. However, most firefighters, police officers, and other emergency personnel report “dead zones” throughout buildings where they get no reception on their two-way radios. A Honeywell BDA ensures that they can communicate clearly in any part of the building, regardless if they are underground, whatever side of the building they are on, or the materials your building is made of (concrete and low-e glass block frequency).
Additional Benefits of Bi-Directional Amplifiers
Ease of Installation
The Honeywell Bi-directional Amplifier connects directly into a fire alarm system using a monitor module.
Local and International Fire Code Compliance
Because fire codes have strict regulations regarding radio coverage throughout a building, having a BDA in place ensures your building will be in compliance.
