BDA Solutions For
Residential Buildings

Chapter 11.10 of the Florida Fire Protection Code is now being enforced by your local AHJ (fire department). This code calls for BDA systems (ERRCS) to be installed in buildings with insufficient public safety radio coverage. Stellar Communications offers BDA coverage enhancement solutions for residential buildings, meeting all unique jurisdictional, state, and federal code compliance requirements.

The Clear


As a property manager, I was tasked with finding proposals to perform the BDA RSSI test for one of my buildings. I received a few including one from our regular fire system service provider. While managers have a general knowledge of systems, we are not specialists in all areas of fire, life, and safety operations.  I was fortunate enough to meet, through referral to Stellar, Robert Harrison, he shared his extensive knowledge on this process.  He responded quickly and just as efficiently, provided a code-compliant quote to carry out the 20x20 RSSI grid test at our property and offered to arrange the DAQ test when this test was completed. Stellar Communications likely saved the property thousands of dollars in equipment they proved we did not need. Stellar Communications communicated with the local fire department and government representatives, on our behalf, to be sure we were recorded as being in compliance with the required codes.  All of this was proposed, completed, and reported within 2 weeks of our first contact.  AMAZING! I would highly recommend them.

Cooperation With AHJ (Authority Having Jursidiction) and FCC License Holder

One of our unique areas of expertise is streamlining cooperation between the AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction), FCC License Holder, and the property owner. While the AHJ is responsible for enforcing minimum First Responder radio coverage requirements, the FCC license holder, directly or by authorized proxy, should participate in the final inspection of a BDA installation and have the ability to fail the installation if certain RF criteria are not met. Should the FCC license holder fail to be notified by the contracted integrator of a BDA installation, The FCC Licensee also has the authority to file a complaint and engage Federal Authorities (FCC) in search of equipment causing harmful interference. Illegal or poorly design systems may damage the public safety system. If this happens, this will result in a fine which the building owner is responsible for.

BDA Testing & System Installation

Stellar Communications provides BDA testing and full turn-key BDA system installations for residential buildings.
