Honeywell International Inc., of Northford, Connecticut, has recalled 900 SWIFT wireless gateways sold with fire alarm systems. The smoke detectors connected to the gateway can fail to activate properly when significant environmental contaminants are present, posing a risk that consumers will not be alerted to a fire. This recall involves the SWIFT wireless gateway sold with fire alarm systems. The gateways are round, white and measure eight inches in diameter. The gateways are the bridge between the fire alarm control panel and the detectors. These systems are used primarily for indoor or covered areas in commercial buildings, such as in office buildings, hotels, industrial facilities, and apartment complexes. The model number and date codes are printed on the back of the gateway on a white label on the circuit board.
The fire alarm systems were sold at Honeywell distributors nationwide between October 2014 and December 2016 for about $440 for the fire alarm system. Contact Honeywell for an update of the firmware on the SWIFT wireless gateway(s) installed on the system. Commercial building customers should continue using the recalled detectors until the firmware is updated. Contact Honeywell at 800-289-3473 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or online at http://hwll.co/CPSCsafety and click on Safety Recall for more information.
