wireless fire alarm systems as they are also known, operate on a similar level to addressable system but without the need for the installation of cables. Devices use radio signals to communicate between the control panels with each device having its own individual address and specific location.

These systems require simpler installation compared to conventional and addressable systems requiring only limited cabling and can be programmed off site reducing labour time on site. The lack of cables also means that there is minimal damage to the fabric of the building.
