First responders rely on bi-directional amplifiers (BDA) to boost communication systems in the areas they serve. Regardless of the size of buildings, acreages of hospitals, school campuses or military bases, bi-directional amplifiers can be configured to work in any location to remove dead spots up to 98.5%. In many areas throughout Alabama, it is now mandatory in every new construction, renovation, or major addition in a business. Bi-directional amplifiers enhance communication coverage for first responders. Many times first responders hit a dead spots when responding to an emergency, which are common in buildings constructed of concrete, metal, and glass. Installing this communication enhancing system requires planning and should only be done by professionals. The staff at Prestige Alarm is experienced at assessing, planning, and installing bi-directional amplifiers in Birmingham, Hoover, Huntsville, Mountain Brook, Trussville, and other communities in Alabama.
The installation of bi-directional amplifiers requires planning and engineering. Multiple steps are necessary to have them properly installed in businesses, community spaces, schools, sporting venues, parking garages, resorts, hotels, apartment buildings, and any space accommodating large groups of people. Our trained staff will conduct a radio signal site survey to test signal strength, locate potential dead spots, and create a blueprint for the BDA project.
From that blueprint, a licensed employee will install the cable network and mount a signal boosting antenna. This antenna will receive the public safety radio antenna signal, and it will have a back up power source. Prestige Alarm will conduct annual testing to make sure the system is stays complaint, operational, and functioning with the always varying signal strength levels being received.
Honeywell Bi-Directional Amplifiers for Birmingham, Hoover, Huntsville, Mountain Brook and Trussville, Alabama
Prestige Alarm is an Alabama authorized dealer and installer for Honeywell Bi-Directional Amplifiers. We work with Honeywell because their amplifiers have been designed to exceed each municipality’s code based on guidelines from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), the International Fire Code (IFC), the International Code Council (ICC), the International Building Code (IBC) and the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet). No two installations are the same and each depends on the number of buildings, power sources, dead spots, building materials, signal direction, and distance from public safety radio antennas.
