Why Your Campus Needs the First UL-Approved Self-Testing Detectors 

Managing a campus’ fire and life safety systems is no easy task. You are responsible for implementing technologies and processes that not only keep your buildings and occupants safe, but also create an environment with limited disruptions, consistent uptime, and an exceptional occupant experience. 

When it comes time for your NFPA-mandated test and inspection, technicians are typically on site for days and weeks at a time requesting access to occupied private  rooms and elevator shafts, meaning you must either disrupt the occupants using those spaces or completely disable the spaces for the duration of the inspection. 

What if we told you there is a better way?  Honeywell has developed the first UL-approved detectors that can be tested automatically – cutting the test and inspection process down from days and weeks to hours and minutes. Join our session to learn more about how self-testing detection technology can help make your campus safer, smarter and more protected.

Learn How the eLock System is Revolutionizing Rapid Access  

Seconds do matter. Having rapid access when you need it helps you mitigate the emergency faster, reduces property damage, and reduces the risk to emergency personnel by eliminating forced entry. However, having a complete audit trail of who used the key, when it was used, and what lock it was used on has not been possible. Plus, the threat of the key falling into the wrong hands or being misplaced will keep any fire marshal up at night.   

The Knox eLock system eliminates the concern of lost keys and provides complete traceability on the rapid access system. The new system also is extremely flexible as access to certain locks and key boxes can be assigned by the need for access.  

Join Knox to learn how the company’s new eLock System is revolutionizing rapid access and the benefits realized by universities. Neal Zipser of Knox will be joined by CCFS President Justin Daniels, fire marshal of the University of Oklahoma, to discuss how his school is implementing the new system and how he achieved university-wide buy-in on the project.    

Presenters: Neal Zipser and Justin Daniels 

Neal Zipser is the Industry Affairs Manager with the Knox Company. Neal manages the company’s relationships it has with fire industry organizations and is the company’s primary liaison with the fire service. Neal works with fire departments and national and state industry associations on rapid entry programs, public education activities, and other community risk reduction initiatives in his current role. Before joining Knox, he held the same position at Kidde.  


Justin Daniels is the Fire Marshal, at the University of Oklahoma – Norman Campus. As Fire Marshal, his duties and responsibilities included but are not limited to: fire inspections for all 320 existing buildings on campus, fire and life safety training for faculty, staff and students, plan review for new buildings and existing facility remodels, fire drills, fireworks and open flame permits, assist with game day operations and other special events, fire investigation, supervision of two Fire Inspectors, and to ensure all fire and life safety systems on campus are inspected and maintained.
