This recall involves the SWIFT wireless gateway sold with fire alarm systems.

The gateway is the bridge between the fire alarm control panel and the detectors.

The systems are primarily used for indoor areas in commercial buildings, hotels, factories, and apartments.

The units were sold across the US from October of 2014 until December of 2016.
