Through a culmination of years of research and development by Johnson Controls industry-leading engineers and data scientists; we bring to you Connected Fire Container Monitoring, which has been designed with agility, flexibility and scalability in mind, to enable your building to manage its operations systematically, by delivering buildings that have memory, intelligence, and unique identity.
Johnson Controls has developed the Connected Fire Container Monitoring system which has been designed to remotely monitor the pressure and temperature of our Halocarbon and Inert gas Fire Suppression Systems.
The Container Monitoring device works by collecting data from each container at set time intervals and is capable of connecting to a mobile device such as a smart phone or tablet, enabling real time data to be shared via an online dashboard.
This data can then be sent wirelessly to the cloud and analyzed to regulate the pressure based on the temperature and provide information that allows instant intervention to be taken, in the case of an unexpected change in pressure as needed to ensure the continued health of the Fire Suppression System.
Access to the Container Monitoring system is granted on a company basis and will be given to a designated User Administrator. The User Administrator is then able to provide access to other users in the company and can manage their access going forward.
Access will be granted to Johnson Controls Authorized Distributors on completion of the required training, please contact your local Territory Manager PRIOR to registration.
Please follow these steps to request access:
(Container Monitoring system dashboard can then be accessed, once the request is approved).
How to download the app
Once you have received your logins you will also be able to view the dashboard through the Johnson Controls mobile app.
Any customer that has received Container Monitoring training and is now an authorised distributor of this product, can have access to the dashboard by completing the registration form by Clicking Here
The Container Monitoring system uses an internet gateway device that can connect to the users LAN or cellular connection.
The Container Monitoring system uses an elelectronic gauge that is LoRaWAN 1.0.2 compliant, Class A. LoRaWAN security implements end-to-end encryption. Each LoRaWAN device is personalized with a unique 128 bit AES(1) key and a globally unique identifier (EUI-64-based DevEUI), both of which are used during the device authentication process.
The Electronic Gauge uses the LoRa technology to communicate wirelessly with the gateway.
The Container Monitoring system measures both the temperature and pressure and normalizes the pressure based on the actual temperature.
By normalizing the pressure based on the temperature, we eliminate any signals that could have been interpreted as low pressure caused by a leak.
Yes, the majority of JCI systems can be retrofitted with Container Monitoring.
The system is extremely accurate, capable of measuring the pressure to an accuracy of 0.5%, which will allow the detection of micro-leaks.
