Fire Alarm System Gateways Recalled for Failure to Activate


By Naomi Millán Emergency Preparedness

SWIFT wireless gateway sold with fire alarm systems have been recalled because the gateway can fail to activate if significant environmental contaminants are presents. This will cause a failure to alarm in case of fire. No incidents or injuries have been reported due to this issue, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall 17-151.

About 900 units manufactured between October 2014 and December 2016 are affected, and were sold under brands including NOTIFIER, Fire-Lite, Gamewell-FCI, and Honeywell.

Facility managers affected by this recall are directed to contact Honeywell for a firmware update. They should continue to use the recalled detectors until the firmware is updated, according to the company.

Honeywell can be reached at 800-289-3473 or http://hwll.co/CPSCsafety.
