Fire alarms: Fire-Lite Alarms


Fire-Lite Alarms by Honeywell has announced an upgraded time-saving software tool designed to simplify fire alarm system installs and service while building a database of information on each installation. The PS-TOOLS program assists users in system configuration, including component selection and panel programming in addition to helping with remote diagnostics.  It can be used with nearly every Fire-Lite Alarms’ addressable and conventional control panel on the market today. The software and user instructions can be downloaded free-of-charge from Users can also register online to receive software update notices via email.

Fire alarm installers can setup and verify the configuration of a Fire-Lite Alarms system using PS-TOOLS before downloading any programming to the panel. Details on multiple installations, including location, components, settings and facility contacts, can be logged and tracked through PS-TOOLS to help dealers provide more organized, proactive services to customers. To quickly diagnose troubles remotely, the software can provide access to a system’s event and history logs either locally or via remote connection. Virtually every function available to an installer standing at the panel is replicated in the software tool, making it powerful, yet easy-to-use. The PS-TOOLS software also provides an automatic conversion of older databases found in Fire-Lite Alarms panels.

Facility managers responsible for the upkeep of multiple Fire-Lite Alarms systems can utilize PS-TOOLS to download event logs and history data from fire alarm control panels to guide maintenance plans and troubleshoot issues. The PS-TOOLS software is Windows®-based and features a more intuitive interface to accommodate users with varying levels of fire alarm experience. For example, the software provides graphical layouts of each system’s components and the correlation between input and output devices.
