The Hampton Inn & Suites in Moline, Illinois is known for its cleanliness and comfort. Conveniently located near the Quad City International Airport, this newly constructed hotel boasts 98 guest rooms, a fitness center, indoor pool, business center, and breakfast area among its other services. With the help of Heartland Fire and Fike Alarm Systems, this Hampton Inn can add safety to its long list of amenities.
Due to local fire codes, and the facility’s large number of rooms and common gathering areas this hotel needed notification devices, long wire runs, and remote power supplies that could be monitored and controlled by a completely addressable fire control panel.
Heartland Fire and Security, a Fike Alarm Systems distributor, won the project with a unique offering, which included the fastest intelligent fire alarm system available, Fike’s CyberCat® 1016. The CyberCat fire alarm panel is a digital, peer-to-peer, bi-directional communication system, revolutionary in its speed, intelligence and flexibility.
Victor Obertance of Heartland Fire and Security said, “With a lot of competition, this was a tough sell. We know we have a high-quality product, and the architects liked what they saw in CyberCat. The ability to easily program the CyberCat to relay information and/or perform process management tasks pushed this panel, and Fike, to the forefront.”
For example, after initial construction of the Hampton Inn was completed, executives from the company did a walk through of the facility, deciding at that time to include door holders on all the fire doors. Because of CyberCat’s flexibility, addressable relays were easily added to control the door holders.
The Cybercat also features unique sounder bases. These sounder bases allow for specific room/occupant event notification, eliminating the need to evacuate entire floors when not necessary. This is an important benefit for hotels, and other multi-occupant dwellings, that wish to improve safety levels while preserving the highest quality experience for their patrons.
Kevin Montgomery, Senior Product Specialist with Fike, said, “Scenarios like this are what CyberCat was made for! The ability to program the panel to fit individual needs, while not losing any functionality or speed, elevates CyberCat to a classification all of its own.”
