Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves the SWIFT Wireless Gateway Devices sold with fire alarm systems.

The Wireless Gateways are round, white and measure approximately eight inches in diameter and are the “bridge” between a building’s Fire Alarm Control Panel and its Sensing Detectors. These systems are used primarily for indoor or covered areas in commercial buildings, such as in office buildings, hotels, industrial facilities and apartment complexes.

The model number and date codes are printed on the back of the gateway on a white label on the circuit board. The recalled Wireless Gateway Devices have the following brand names, model numbers and date codes (in alphabetical order):

  • Fire-Lite; model: W-GATE; date code range: 10 13 14 through 12 15 16
  • Gamewell-FCI; model: VW-GATE; date code range: 10 13 14 through 12 15 16
  • Honeywell; model: XLS-WSG; date code range: 10 13 14 through 12 15 16
  • Johnson Controls; model: JFWSG; date code range: 10 13 14 through 12 15 16
  • NOTIFIER; model: FWSG; date code range: 10 13 14 through 12 15 16

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and installed presentation. Additional images of the recalled Wireless Gateways can be found on the Web site above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, item numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, the Smoke Detectors connected to the Gateway Device can fail to activate properly when significant environmental contaminants are present, posing a risk that people who are in the protected building will not be alerted to a fire.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled SWIFT Wireless Gateway Devices, please contact Honeywell for an update of the firmware on the Devices installed in your system. Commercial building customers should continue using the recalled Gateway Devices until the firmware is updated.
