A.N.Bakulev Center for Cardiovascular Surgery, Russian Federation
21,000 Streletz-PRO wireless devices
140 thousand sq.m
A.N.Bakulev Center for Cardiovascular Surgery is Russia's largest scientific institution in the field of cardiology and cardiac surgery. In 2022 alone, the Home of Heart hospitalized more than 27 thousand patients and performed more than 13 thousand complex heart and vascular surgeries.
In 2023, the fire alarm system in 4 buildings of the center reached the end of its service life and needed to be completely replaced, without taking medical staff away from saving lives. Therefore, the radio-channel system Streletz-PRO was chosen as the new system.
The equipment was upgraded in two buildings of the V.I.Burakovsky Institute of Cardiac Surgery on Rublyovskoye Highway and two buildings of the Institute of Coronary and Vascular Surgery on Leninskiy Avenue. The total area of the protected territory is 140 thousand square meters.
Previously, the Bakoulev Center had a Honeywell fire alarm system. In 2023, its service life expired, and international sanctions did not allow to maintain and update the equipment - fire safety was at risk.
In total, more than 20 thousand wireless devices are installed in 4 buildings in 6 months.

Reasons for wireless use
One of the main challenges of installing a fire alarm in a medical facility is to minimize installation time and reduce the number of visits to the building. How can wireless technologies make these goals a lot more achievable?
- Design from the comfort of your house. You can design a wireless fire alarm from the comfort of your house, without having to visit the building. In order to calculate the layout of the devices you only need a computer and the floor plans.
- Simple installation. A wireless system requires no electrical work, and the detectors are simply attached to the ceiling with 2 screws. Two workers with no special qualifications can install a wireless fire alarm in just one day.
- Remote configuration and monitoring. A wireless fire alarm can be configured even from a home computer, as the software connects to the system via the Internet. You can also remotely monitor the state of each device and send engineers to the building only when it’s necessary.
