For naught, regardless, since I.T. (information technology) departments have never been in charge of fire alarm systems, EVER. That profession is overseen by CERTIFIED Fire Alarm Technicians ONLY (as per law). Or, did they fire THEM as well? Also, Transponders are certainly still found in many modern Addressable Fire Alarm Systems. Calm down and try to get back to the topic at hand.....excessive call outs. lastly, unless you can tell us what type of fire detection is used, most of your rhetoric is for naught...
ok, modern day fire alarm systems like Hobart's don't use transponders, unless they have fired their IT dept and gone back to the 70's
So, it would seem that a49deere and bluezone's combined expertise on the matter are outdated since, well... the beginning of time.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.
