Having your home or business protected against the threat of a fire going undetected is essential and fire protection is the law in some situations.
We offer both large and small scale fire alarm installations for both the commercial and domestic market. All our engineers are trained to the highest standard and meet all current Irish and European standards.
We will design, supply, install, commission, and maintain your Fire Alarm System. We will work with you or your developer and draw up plans for your property and we will advise on the most suitable detection devices for the environment. Detection may include smoke alarms, heat detectors and heat alarms, video analytics, flame detectors, gas detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
A fire and life safety system is only as good as it’s installed. From design, inspection, testing, and maintenance, we work with you to ensure your fire alarm systems are operating efficiently throughout their life cycle. Without the right commissioning it is challenging to ensure that your fire and life safety systems will meet code minimum, performance-based design, and end-user requirements. Our systematic commissioning and integrated testing approach for life and safety systems helps you document, verify, and sustain performance of the facility assets that are critical to your business
At Sentinel Fire & Security we supply all fire alarms required for any given job. We only use the industry leading brands to ensure our clients are using the highest quality fire alarms.
When installing a Fire Alarm, we will ensure that the work is completed to the highest standard using the best quality goods in the market. Taking any shortcut in fire detection can pose a threat live so we ensure that the installation is completed neatly but most importantly in compliance with the regulations following the plan drawn up by Sentinel.

Monitored fire alarm systems can be ideal for commercial premises and large sites. If you are responsible for providing a fire alarm system for offices or a corporate area, you will need to meet specific requirements, and we can help you with this. You will not require a landline, as we can operate our systems through GSM mobile phone company, connecting to monitoring stations that will visit the premises and/or alert emergency services when necessary.
Time is of the essence in the event of fire, and 24//7 alarm monitoring delivers the reassurance that we will respond with speed and efficiency when needed. Our highly trained team of operators will monitor all fire alarm activations in line with current European standards, and ensure the fire brigade is swiftly alerted and dispatched. Whether your premises are occupied or vacant, we will act fast to mobile a quick emergency response and minimise danger to life and damage to property.
Here at Sentinel Security, we provide a complete management system for all your fire safety needs, and we perform high quality maintenance inspections and repairs to ensure your fire alarm system is always functioning to the highest standards. We will ensure that not only do you meet your legal obligations at all times, you have complete peace of mind that we are on hand when you need us.
Our maintenance contracts ensure that your fire alarms are inspected and tested annually, and you are also guaranteed a response to an emergency call within five hours as part of your contract. When we take on your maintenance contract, one of our fully qualified engineers will visit your property to inspect and test your systems. You will not encounter any disturbance to the operating of your system during this process.
Our fire protection maintenance contracts are reviewed annually for your convenience, and you can review your options in advance to ensure that you always receive the service you need.
A conventional fire alarm control panel links to several lines of fire, heat and smoke detectors and manual call points, referred to as detection zones. Depending on the responses received from the detection zones, the control panel may activate a number of sounder or alarm systems. This is an effective solution for small buildings, as it can indicate the zone in which a problem has been detected and it usually supports up to 40 zones, each covering an area of up to 2000 sq metres. This system is run from mains power, with battery back up.
We work with a range of smoke detectors, including optical smoke detectors, which may be triggered by a light beam that activates the alarm if blocked by smoke or by light scatter caused by the smoke. Ionisation smoke detectors are slightly more sensitive, triggering the alarm when smoke enters the ionisation chamber within the detector and neutralises the ionised air there. Another option is the Reflected Beam smoke detector, which is based on the principle of light obscuration and consists of a transceiver (transmitter/receiver) unit that projects, monitors and receives a beam of light reflected across the protected area. The type of detector that works best in your premises will depend upon the environment of your building and we can advise on this.
A break glass unit allows for manual setting off of a fire alarm, should it be seen before it activates a smoke or heat detector.
Addressable fire alarm systems are an excellent option in larger and more complex buildings, as these offer a faster and more precise identification of the location of a fire, as well as easier maintenance. An addressable fire alarm allows one pair of wires to be connected to a large number of devices across the system, providing cost savings in the wiring of large systems.
