A wide-spread campus such as the KKU naturally consists of various application areas, including lecture rooms, laboratories, car parks and many more. All these areas pose different challenges to a fire protection system. The solution needs to be integrated with other security systems into a third-party building management system.


The Siemens Solution Partner Secutronic recommended Cerberus PRO. Next to its smart features for ensured system uptime and false alarm prevention, its innovative, economic cabling concept results in less wiring and thus lower installation costs. Cerberus PRO can be easily adapted to match any application area’s needs thanks to its comprehensive portfolio.

All Cerberus PRO devices have built-in fault isolator and a large loop length. What's more, thanks to the innovative and economic cabling concept, there was less wiring installed in the university which resulted in lower installation costs.
