Hush-Pro Landlord System Interface (CAST Protocol)
- Compatible with C-TEC’s CAST protocol XFP and ZFP addressable fire panels.
- Allows a stand-alone Hush-Pro domestic fire alarm system to be connected to a CAST landlord/communal system to unlock a series of powerful optional features such as remote off-site monitoring via the Cloud, automatic evacuation of dwellings in a Fire Level 2 condition, manual keyswitch evacuations by the fire and rescue services and more.

Networked Hush-Pro Systems
To unleash the full power of Hush-Pro you can connect multiple stand-alone Hush-Pro systems to a communal C-TEC XFP or ZFP CAST protocol addressable fire alarm system (available 2019).
- Use the Cause & Effect programming of the communal XFP or ZFP CAST fire panel to set-up building management approved phased evacuation scenarios that don’t put peoples’ lives at risk.
- Program keyswitches at the communal CAST fire panel that allow the emergency services to evacuate groups of dwellings and/or floors of dwellings without having to climb staircases.
- Report wiring faults, Fire Level 1 triggers (e.g. optical detector activated) and Fire Level 2 triggers (heat detector activated or optical detector activated for a prolonged pre-set period) to off-site monitoring centres to ensure potential dangers are reported in real time.
Hush-Pro Operation & Functions
- When the Hush-Pro system is in its normal state, power is applied to its detection and alarm circuit which is continually monitored for open and short circuit faults.
- When a fire detector within a dwelling triggers, the system’s Alarm sounders and VADs will activate.
- Depending on the system’s configuration, a remote overdoor indicator outside the room and/or cooker shut-off relays may also activate.
- If multiple Hush-Pro systems are connected to a compatible communal fire system, automatic phased evacuation, manual fire brigade evacuation and the off-site reporting of faults and fires may also be possible (see Networked HUSH2 Systems tab above for more details).
Some of the operational options available on Hush-Pro are:-
- A HUSH/SILENCE FUNCTION
Allows a hushed period of two minutes to be applied (and extended if required) for the management of false alarms
- A ‘HOT WORKS’ FUNCTION
Allows a hushed/isolation period of fifteen minutes to be applied (and extended if required) to protect against inadvertent activation.
- A ‘TEST’ FUNCTION
Allows the functionality of the system’s detectors and alarm devices to be electronically tested with relevant faults indicated via the controller’s fault status LED.
Summary of Hush-Pro features

Why use a Grade C system?
|BS5839-6 GRADE C REQUIREMENTS||BS5839-6 GRADE C REQUIREMENTS|
|Grade C systems require fault monitoring of the power supply.||Grade D system power supplies can be completely unmonitored (Section 6.2 of BS5839-6 2013).|
|Grade C systems require fault monitoring of the interconnecting wiring.||There is no monitoring of the wiring required in Grade D systems (Section 6.2 of BS5839-6 2013).|
|Grade C systems provide a readily accessible method of silencing and testing the system at floor level for compliance with Section 9.1.1 of BS 5839-6 2013||Grade D systems require additional equipment to provide silencing facilities at floor level.|
