I just got a off the cuff quote. 3 floors: 2 screens on one, 2nd floor of office space, 3rd Masonic Temple. 40-60K. Is that nuts or is it me?????

What have you spent on a fire alarm?

40-60K sounds high, IF you are talking about heat/smoke detectors for multiple locations in the same building which report to a single master notification unit... Thankfully I haven't yet been faced with one of these, YET...

Are you looking at a hardwired system, or wireless? When we put our system in, the difference in cost (mainly installation labor) was substantial.

Mike,

We installed a wired fire detection system (not suppression) for about $5,000. This included a master station, smoke detectors, heat detectors, beam detectors in the main house, strobes and horns. There are pull stations near every exit. Ours is an old building, so the system wasn't installed with construction, which certainly would've been easier. I'm sure we paid mostly for the labor. $40-60k seems awfully high.

$5,000 sounds about right.
