Our family of code-compliant BDA systems are designed to safeguard the lives of first responders in a variety of public building environments. Public safety-first responders such as ambulance service, fire service, law enforcement, rescue squad, emergency management and securities are mission critical operations that help protect and rescue the general public from danger. Communication networks have to ensure that critical information is transmitted and received promptly to co-ordinate and facilitate rescue efforts. Here at Skylight Techs we provide Public Safety BDA (Bi-directional amplifier) designed to meet the needs of first responder communications by delivering a highly affordable, state of the art solution so venue owners can rest assured that emergency personnel get the communication coverage they need and deserve.

System Maintenance and Yearly Inspection

The NFPA/ICC requires that all emergency coverage radio systems are inspected annually, and when buildings undergo structural changes or additions that would result in the original field performance tests being materially changed. Here at Skylight Techs we can perform the inspections requirements listed on the NFPA/ICC standards as well as communication can be supported for up to an hour while the system runs on batteries or backup power and acceptance test procedures are being followed. At Skylight Techs we are committed to maintain the health of your communication systems to allow the owners to rest assured that their emergency personnel and buildings get the communication coverage needed.
