Chester County, PA - Alarm Data Interface has been adapted to the newest version of the county's station print template. ADI version 10.1 is now available for download - however, please do not install it until after CCDES has implemented the new county-wide report format on February 27, 2018. If you do not currently have an active Alarm Data Interface Support Agreement with FDCMS then you still have time. The cut off date for that has been extended to February 27th, 2018; after which, CAD Upgrade pricing will be in effect for 90 days before returning to normal. Contact FDCMS for additional information.
New ADI Integrations - FDCMS is proud to announce some new integrations with other vendors. In addition to Data Demon, FirePrograms and FireHouse Software (both CAD Monitor and legacy), Alarm Data Interface now integrates with Emergency Reporting. Integrations with additional vendors are coming soon. Contact FDCMS for additional information.
The New Livingston County, NY version of Alarm Data Interface is now available for download. Contact FDCMS if you need any assistance upgrading.
FDCMS has added Manatee County, FL to its list of supported CAD integrations. Contact us at Sales@fdcms.com for more information.
ADI has been re-tooled to parse the E-mailed incident reports sent by the Tritech CAD system in Madison County, NY. This will overcome the issues that the county was having when transmitting via TCP/IP.
Incident Data Export functionality has existed in ADI for years. FDCMS has recently added FirePrograms Software to its list of NFIRS vendors. Make NFIRS data entry task easier by letting ADI export your received CAD incident data to some of the most popular NFIRS reporting software companies in the United States. See a list of our NFIRS vendors from the link on the left.
Wayne County, NY has transitioned over to their new Intergraph CAD system. All agencies should now be running ADI version 9.36 or higher. If your agency still doesn't have an ADI Support Agreement then be sure to contact us at Sales@fdcms.com.
Our Station Control Service is now available. It allows Alarm Data Interface to electrically control devices in your fire station, thus providing the following functions (just to name a few):
Door Unlocking / Relocking - Automatically unlock one or more perimeter doors for a defined time period upon dispatch. Remotely (via MobileLink) unlock your social hall door for three hours, manually relock it prior to the three hour timer expiring. Remotely unlock a perimeter door for a move-up crew when all available members are at an incident.
Station Lighting - Automatically turn on interior or exterior ligthing based on unit status or dispatch incident type. Remotely turn on parking lot lights for a pre-defined time period.
Turnout Timers - Control LED indicators visible to your in-bay apparatus so that your crews know when they have waited long enough for additional personnel.
- Unit Status Indicators - Control electrical devices based on whether a particular unit is out on a call or back in quarters.
- Alerting Devices - Activate bells, klaxons or lights based on dispatch incident type (fire versus EMS, for example) or by dispatched unit.
Relays (sold separately) are interfaced with these devices in your station. Relay outputs are triggered by ADI based on unit status (dispatched or closed) or dispatch incident type. Additionally, outputs can be manually controlled by authorized individuals via MobileLink. Contact email@example.com for additional details.
- Alarm Data Interface version 9.26 and higher now has its own Dynamic DNS client built in to it so that your dispatch center can reliably connect to your fire station over the Internet. No need to purchase a static IP or pay DDNS companies an extra fee for DDNS service. Our rock-solid service is free to all agencies subscribed to our Annual ADI Support Agreement.
- Our new web-based MobileLink Service is available. MobileLink lets your smartphone-carrying members report their response and availability status. It integrates with ADI so you see all of your dispatches and responding members. MobileLink also features IDEx station announcements, web paging, station control and member availability display.
- Web Paging Service is our web-based member paging application that allows authorized personnel to send individual or group pages to members of your agency or team.
- Blue Devil Data's NFIRS 5.0 compliant
Data Demon application can now natively import incident data from ADI. Feel free
