Founded in 2002 by Brendan Lally, our number one goal from inception has been to change the long infamous fire alarm narrative. We don’t want our customers to dread anything to do with their fire alarms. There is nothing to fear and the experience can be a pleasant one, when done the right way.

We strive to provide a top quality product, to explain all of the steps thoroughly to our customers, to stand behind our products and our installation, and to always have our existing customers be our main source of new work. IRL Systems main source of new business is through the many referrals that we receive from satisfied clients.

We started out doing Security and Fire Alarm systems, but over the years we became known for our expertise in fire alarm systems. Three years ago, we decided it was time to start focusing all of our time and effort in training and management of fire alarm systems.

Our philosophy is “Master of One” instead of “Jack of All, Master of None”.

We have slowly been phasing our security services since then, still supporting our existing customers, but not taking on any new security projects. We have been part of the Edwards Fire Alarm family since 2003, when we became Mirtone distributors, which morphed into Vigilant, and most recently and currently, the Kidde Line.

In 2017, we were invited to begin training and installing the main EST product line, and were recognized by Edwards as a company that they respected, aligned with, and valued as the type of partner capable of carrying their name and history.

In mid 2019, the much anticipated EST4 was released. EST3 has been the most widely used fire alarm system in the united states over the last 20 years, and EST4 is the latest greatest in that line, with higher protection levels, faster download speeds, higher levels of network security, among many other industry leading options, it’s the one to beat.

We pride ourselves and our business values, we go against the industry grain, we do not enforce long term contracts, in fact we feel they are fundamentally wrong. Our customers work with us because they want to. They are not chained to us, nor should they be. We fight for them every day, through our consistent efforts to exceed their expectations. Give us a try, you wont be tricked into a five year contract. They don’t exist here. Our history says, once you become our client, you’ll stay for the long haul.
