Hochiki Europe’s false-alarm-rejecting ACD-EN multi-sensor arrives in Europe

Hochiki Europe is introducing what it describes as its most sophisticated multi-sensor yet to the European market.

Part of the life safety group’s ESP intelligent sensor range, the ACD-EN features new technology designed to reduce false alarms.

The Fire Industry Association (FIA) recently published a report showing that multi-sensor detectors are more effective at rejecting false alarms, which cost the UK taxpayer more than £1bn each year, than alternative sensors.

Conducted in conjunction with the BRE, its findings have been endorsed by Hochiki Europe, whose general manager for sales and marketing recently spoke to IFSEC Global about its forthcoming appearance at FIREX 2018 and marking its 100-year anniversary this year.
