Esser | The new era of fire alarm technology.

Novar GmbH with its brands ESSER and Ackermann belongs to the Honeywell Security and Fire division in the Automation and Control Solutions division. Honeywell is a leading global supplier of aerospace technology, building technology (Automation and Control Solutions) and special chemicals (Performance Materials and Technologies). With a comprehensive and forward-looking portfolio of customized fire protection concepts and innovative voice alarm systems, ESSER is the leading expert for security in buildings.


Fire protection solutions are as individual as the objects for which they are planned. The requirements for future-proof fire alarm systems are complex: Precisely fitting configuration and demand-oriented expansion are just as important as the flexible expandability with new functions or components and downward compatibility. ESSER's solutions allow the realization of fire alarm systems that are precisely tailored to the requirements. Furthermore, the products stand for sophisticated design, user-friendliness and low life cycle and maintenance costs.

Flexes | A new era of fire detection technology.

Flexibility plays a central role in the latest innovation from Novar. The fire detection system of the traditional brand ESSER with VdS system approval sets a milestone in the development of technical fire protection. Already in the run-up to the successful market launch, the FlexES control caused a sensation when it won first place at the coveted GIT SAFETY AWARD 2010 with this innovative product at the beginning of 2010. The product is convincing both from a technical point of view and from the customer's perspective. A user-friendly control panel with unique ergonomics, configurable modules and expandable housing variants make installation considerably easier and also guarantee systems precisely tailored to user requirements. Payment is only made for software components that are used. This ensures that the system is never oversized and at the same time offers the scope for expansion that is expected by installers and operators today.


Esser | Some advantages at a glance:

  • Simple exchange/easy addition of modules
  • Keyboard release via a code (no key required)
  • Intuitive operation
  • All functions and interfaces are integrated
  • Individually assignable function keys
  • Group individual display
  • Different national languages via slide-in strips
  • etcetera

FlexES control guarantees long-term investment protection for you as a customer: Adapted to the increasing size and complexity of the buildings to be protected, the control centre can be easily extended or supplemented at any time.

A management system is a PC-supported software for the operation as well as the acquisition and processing of data from connected sub-systems. It has a multi-level user and rights administration for the administration of specific authorizations for data access and for the operation of the subsystems as well as for the structured message processing within the management system. Various trades can thus be integrated under a uniform user interface.


These include, among others, the areas:

  • Intrusion detection technology
  • Fire alarm technology
  • Video technology
  • Access control
  • Escape route technology
  • Voice alarm
  • Call system technology
  • Escape door control unit

In addition, functions are also provided for building management systems, process technology (measurement, control, regulation) and data management. These can be used in a uniform form via the management system. Within the management system, the functional mapping of alarm, notification and escalation scenarios is just as much a fixed component as the user, time, event or program-controlled interaction of the connected sub-systems. For the visualisation and output of messages and data as well as alarms, a management system provides additional output channels such as email, SMS, fax, and even the printing of complete fire brigade route maps via an alarm printer in addition to the screen outputs in building plans, tables and workflows.
