Smoke Detector and Fire Alarm Testing Requirements Mobile App

The Smoke Detector and Fire Alarm Testing Requirements mobile app was designed for commercial buildings. Users can quickly test the functionality of their hard-wired smoke detectors, alarm panels, sprinkler systems and more from their smartphone or tablet.

Using the inspection checklist helps ensure that all smoke detection, alarms and battery back-up devices are working in accordance with NFPA guidelines. Once you are done with the visual inspection and testing process, the test results are saved for your records.
