The 4100U has its origins in 1988 with the introduction of a 4100, 512-point panel that could only use conventional detectors. Throughout the years many key features were added such as addressable analog sensors, a 1,000-point CPU, the 4120 Network, a 2,000-point CPU, 4100U digital voice, an internet connection module, a large screen display, and a Carbon Monoxide (CO) sensor base to name a few.Click 1The customer who bought that initial system back in 1988 can upgrade to the new 4100ES with all of the features above and include mass storage, remote downloads over their LAN with the Building Network Interface card, make the upgrade process less disruptive by using the Install Mode and increase the efficiency of their system maintenance by upgrading to TrueInsight Remote Services.

10 Requires on site storage of site specific software, site drawings etc. 4100ES Mass Storage DeviceThe 2010 Edition of NFPA 72Requires on site storage of sitespecific software, site drawingsetc.Click 1Due to past difficulties with the storage of site specific information for Fire Alarm systems, the 2010 Edition of NFPA 72 requires on site storage of site specific software, site drawings, manufacturer's instructions and other critical system information.
11 4100ES Mass Storage DeviceManufacturers have developed some creative solutions to meet this new NFPA requirement that involve separate cabinets for the storage of records and software, USB type storage devices and others. However, these require additional wall space and are not supervised….SimplexGrinnell has come up with another solution that will not take up any additional wall space and is fully supervised.

In the past, all of this information could have been lost if a technician’s laptop was either stolen or was damaged. This storage card is supervised so that if it is removed a trouble will appear on the panel. Further the use of a SimplexGrinnell programming unit would be required to access any data on the card, so that no technician can gain unauthorized access to the data. Be careful, this chip cannot be swapped while the system is live without risking damage to the system.Jeff Brooks our Senior Product Manager for Large Systems describes the importance of the new mass storage card:Run Jeff Brooks 4100-ES Video clip:Run the clip from 2:18 to 3:11

22 TrueInsight Solution Overview SimplexGrinnellCustomerEnterprise ServerRS AgentInternetClick #1 – Lets take a high level look at how it works. A small embedded computer is installed in your 4100U Fire Alarm Control Panel. This computer is roughly the size of a deck of cards and is connected to the standard serial port on the Fire Alarm Control Panel. The only other connections are power and network through a standard RJ-45 connector. This Linux based computer acts as an interface between the 4100U and the remote service software agent.Click #2 – The remote service software agent establishes a tunnel to the internet through your firewall using port 443. The agent supports DHCP or Fixed IP addressing.Click #3 – The communication tunnel is connected through the firewall on our end to the enterprise servers where the information is compiled for viewing and archiving.Click#4 – The information is presented through the remote service software agent to the centralized Technical Support team for system diagnostics.Sales representative note: Tunnel can only be established from the remote service agents side.Remote Technical SupportFire Alarm Panel
23 Typical Incident Activity Summary TrueInsight Service Center automatically notified by fire panel. Customer will be contactedTrueInsight Tech diagnoses faultRemote Service Tech enters Recommendations into Electronic Service RequestService Resource Center schedules best available technician for the job and dispatches callDistrict Tech can collaborate with remote services technician12345Click #1 – When a trouble condition is detected by the 4100U a notification is sent to the TrueInsight Service Center. The notification gives detailed information about the trouble condition. The customer is contacted to verify there are no onsite issues contributing to the situationClick #2 The TrueInsight Remote Technician can then drill into the diagnostic information to identify the probable cause of the trouble and make parts recommendations as appropriate. It is also possible for the technician to access additional information from the panel should it be necessary.Click #3 – After the remote technician completes diagnostic process the information is added to a Service Request and sent to the Service Response Center for dispatching.Click # 4 – Using the information provided on the Service Request, the Service Response Center contacts the customer and schedules the service call. The Service resource Center representative will have visibility to suggested parts requirements and skill levels that can be leveraged during the scheduling process. Every effort should be made to secure the parts prior to the service call.Click #5 – One of the unique features of TrueInsight is that the on site technician can collaborate with the remote technician in a streamlined fashion due to the technology, should additional assistance be required..
24 Additional Discussion Points/Next Steps (Optional) Timing of network dropsTrueInsight business process will take place from 8-5 EDTAfter hours emergency service process remains the sameNeed to have service contract addendum signedThis is not a central station monitoring serviceThere is no charge for TrueInsightIf service agreement coverage are downgraded, we could disconnect serviceClick #1- The installation of TrueInsight in each 4100U panel is free of charge since you have our “Full” Coverage” Service Agreement. The only responsibility you have is to provide a network drop near each 4100U panel if one doesn’t currently existSales Representative Note: Ask the customer for an estimate as to how long it would take them to install a network drop near each panel. If the customer isn’t able to estimate the timeline ask them if they could perform the task within a month. Its important to get some kind of an estimate as leaving it open ended may lead to a lengthy timeline .Click #2- TrueInsight diagnostics will run during normal business hours only. After hours service will be handled as you do today.Click #3- There is a basic addendum you will need to sign. Its written in common language and there is not a lot of legal jargon.Sales Representative note: Hand the addendum to the customer responsible for getting it signed. Its important to bring the contract with you to the meeting.The reason for the addendum is we want to make sure you understand that:Click #4 The main intent of the addendum is to separate TrueInsight from Central Station Monitoring which we also offer. With TrueInsight we will not be notifying the authorities as we do with central station monitoring. With TrueInsight we are only reviewing trouble conditions.Click#5- Due to your status of being a full coverage service agreement customer we are offering TrueInsight at no chargeClick#6- Lastly, If you terminate or downgrade your service agreement, SimplexGrinnell reserves the right to disconnect the serviceSales Representative note: Before ending the meeting go to the next slide and ask if there are any questions24
