    About the Templates
    Fire alarm Design is tough when you have to start out building everything from scratch.
    Searching the internet for blocks and fire alarm symbols turns up a few barely usable symbols and a bunch of forums that force your to sign up to and join, if you want to get a preview of the downloadable files. You can’t even download the files either unless you sign up. Sign up takes days. by the time you get the notification in your email that you have been accepted, you’ve already forgotten where it was and what your sign in was.

    Why these templates were made
    Candela
    Well I got sick of trying to find symbols and blocks. No one has any. Except weird ones . So I built my own fire alarm symbols and put them in blocks and made my own title block and made most of the fire alarm stuff dynamic. So that when I would insert a wall mounted visual strobe, I’d have a drop down menu so I can select the candela and just get the design over with.

    Candela Measurement tools
    Well, that was all good and everything but I need to be certain what candela to use at what location. So I made my own measurement blocks.

    Legend
    Found there was a need for a legend that stays uniform and reads neat and clean. To keep the legend from being too busy, each device is on it’s own layer so I can turn layers off for devices not being used.

    Wiring.
    Wiring up the devices I have inserted is pretty simple. Labeling the wires is the part that takes the longest yet is the easiest task. So I figured out a way to automatically label my wires as I draw them in.

    Access Control Template

    Of course the company I work for does more than just fire alarm. We also install access control devices. and yes that service needs permitting in the state I am in. Part of that process is sending drawings with cut-sheets to the local AHJ. So I put my ideas back to work. I made dynamic title block for the access control drawings.

    Symbols
    Dynamic symbols. Like the exit push button. Sure just using a rotate after inserting the block works, but can take a bit more time than just clicking a drop down menu and having the device positioned where it needs to be.
