Fire Alarm Control Panel




The FireWatcherFW106S/FW106SC is an intelligent Fire Alarm Control Panel designed for small to medium-scale facilities. The FireWatcherFW106S/FW106SC is ideally suited for both new and retrofit commercial, institutional, and industrial fire detection and notification applications. The only difference between FW106S and FW106SC is the language. FW106S is in English and FW106SC is in French.
