FireSysCAD - Fire Alarm design software


FireSysCAD is a software system that helps engineers, designers and drafters to create Fire Alarm drawings. The software relies on AutoCAD blocks and Excel data files that are maintained by the users. The program reduces the time it takes to create finished designed drawings while significantly reducing design/drafting errors.

System Requirements
Autodesk AutoCAD 2008+
Microsoft Excel 2007+

Currently supported Manufacturers
FireSysCAD is capable of supporting an expansive list of fire alarm manufacturers' information, including part numbers, device current, candela settings, wattage, etc.
Any the manufacturer information can be added, maintained or modified by the user/manager.
Our currently supported manufacturers are:
   Bosch and Potter, EST, Fike, Firelite, Gamewell-FCI, Genesis, Honeywell, Johnson Controls,
   Notifier, Siemens, Silent Knight, System Sensor, Tyco and Vigilant
Please contact us if you do not see your preferred manufacturer listed above. We are regularly adding new information.
