Challenges Faced By Lodha Palava City 

In such a vast area, multiple challenges come in the way that can hinder the growth of the place. Lodha Palava city faced a lot of difficulties to make it a desirable environment, such as they were majorly concerned about the fire panel health and the functionality of fire accessories, alarms, or notifications. There were no proper systems for the quick detection of fire in the area so that the damage could be prevented and the unavailability of the connectivity of alarm to CMS for 24/7 alarm monitoring for which houses close to 10,000 families. 

Also, the lack of any real-time monitoring system of the elevators present in the building at the time of emergencies. Furthermore, they wanted the removal of key personnel whose responsibility was to be present on the site just to monitor water levels of different tanks situated at different wings as the water level management was affected due to the absence of key personnel or any blunder created by the people.

Here is the detailed information on all the solutions provided by Smart-I : 

  • Fire Alarm Monitoring System - Smart-I has deployed LAFA based fire alarm monitoring system, it is connected with the existing commercial fire alarm, which in turn is linked with local CMS TCP/IP-based plan communication. This ensures the transmission of the signal is much faster than before.  

Here, the LAFA controller receives inputs from the fire control panel, and if any event occurs, it sends an indication to the smartAlarm software integrated with IBM, there will be a popup demonstrating an emergency. According to the action plan, an operator in CMS will be able to deal with the case with sufficient knowledge & skills. 

  • Lift Alarm Monitoring System - Lift alarm monitoring system is also LAFA based, which is specialized in obtaining information from the elevators and transmitting it over an Ethernet-based system to a CMS Computer in case of any emergency.

 If the user presses the emergency switch that is present inside the elevator, the alert is transmitted, and CMS can precisely record all the information related to this incident, such as the time & date of the event, reports of lift break down, and its availability. The faults are identified as Red for Emergency and Yellow for warning. 

  • Water Tank Level Detection & Pump Operation Control Monitoring System - The LAFA controller creates events and sends them to smartAlarm & Smart Pump Utility Software. Now, this software is competent enough to display the water level indication, and then the software itself takes care of the action automatically that is needed to be executed for further processes. The input sensor detects whether the water level is low or high & sends the signal to the CMS software through the LAFA control panel & smartAlarm software. This particular system is used to monitor the water level present in the water tanks.
