Intelligent/Conventional Life Safety Control Panel

GE Security’s QS4 QuickStart life safety control panel provides conventional and intelligent addressable circuits in a single intelligent control panel. Designed for easy setup and simple installation, QuickStart lives up to its name in every respect.

QS4’s exclusive QuickStart auto-learn function, and the option of configuring the panel using convenient front panel programming or from a PC, makes short work of system setup. Devices come on-line in no time as well, thanks to QS4’s built-in barcode scanner port. A simple pass of the optional scanner is all it takes to store device information in the QuickStart database. The scanner can also be used for quick and easy text entry when assembling custom messages.

QS4’s setup routine is deceptively simple, considering this system’s robust features and broad capacity. Supporting up to 1,000 intelligent detectors and modules, QS4 takes full advantage of GE Security’s exclusive Signature Series technology, which provides electronic addressing, automatic device mapping, environmental compensation, and true multisensor detection.
