RM Insight - Migration of monitored fire alarm and lift phone services to NBN

Friday, 14 July, 2017

With the roll-out of the National Broadband Network (NBN), services are being progressively disconnected from the copper wire telephone system, including monitored fire alarms and lift emergency phones.

Fire Protection Association Australia has been working with the Commonwealth Department of Communications and the Arts to manage this process and have released a best practice guide on the subject which outlines the steps which should be taken by property owners in each state.

It should be noted that an alternative monitoring path is required for reliability of monitoring as the NBN does not work during a power failure.

How to migrate a monitored fire alarm or lift phone service

For further information refer to Migration of monitored fire alarm and lift phone services good practice guide Feb. 2017 from the Department of Communications and the Arts website.
