The vector stencils library Alarm and access control contains 80 symbols of digital proximity equipment, locking hardware, and access control equipment.
"An alarm device or system of alarm devices gives an audible, visual or other form of alarm signal about a problem or condition. Alarm devices are often outfitted with a siren." [Alarm device. Wikipedia]
"An access control point, which can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or other physical barrier, where granting access can be electronically controlled. Typically, the access point is a door. An electronic access control door can contain several elements. At its most basic, there is a stand-alone electric lock. The lock is unlocked by an operator with a switch. To automate this, operator intervention is replaced by a reader. The reader could be a keypad where a code is entered, it could be a card reader, or it could be a biometric reader. Readers do not usually make an access decision, but send a card number to an access control panel that verifies the number against an access list. To monitor the door position a magnetic door switch can be used. In concept, the door switch is not unlike those on refrigerators or car doors. Generally only entry is controlled, and exit is uncontrolled. In cases where exit is also controlled, a second reader is used on the opposite side of the door. In cases where exit is not controlled, free exit, a device called a request-to-exit (REX) is used. Request-to-exit devices can be a push-button or a motion detector. When the button is pushed, or the motion detector detects motion at the door, the door alarm is temporarily ignored while the door is opened. Exiting a door without having to electrically unlock the door is called mechanical free egress. This is an important safety feature. In cases where the lock must be electrically unlocked on exit, the request-to-exit device also unlocks the door." [Access control. Wikipedia]

The panel receives information from environmental sensors designed to detect changes associated with fire, monitors their operational integrity and provides for automatic control of equipment, and transmission of information necessary to prepare the facility for fire based on a predetermined sequence. The panel may also supply electrical energy to operate any associated sensor, control, transmitter, or relay. There are four basic types of panels: coded panels, conventional panels, addressable panels, and multiplex systems." [Fire alarm control panel. Wikipedia]

Emergency Plan

The Fire Emergency Plan illustrates the scheme of the building and location of the main and fire exits for a safe evacuation, and clearly defines directions to them on the plan. Fire Emergency Plans are constructed on the case of unexpected or emergency situations, fires, hazardous leaks, natural disasters, and other sudden events. They must to be obligatorily on the plain sight at every building and on each floor, at living houses and apartments, schools and universities, medical centers, clinics and hospitals, office buildings, banks, cafes, restaurants, and also at all other public buildings and institutions. The Evacuation plans and Emergency Plans preliminary designed in ConceptDraw PRO software help employees and family members when some emergency events happen and let avoid the accidents and sad consequences, prevent injuries and fatalities, allow reduce damages and speed the work resumption. Start drawing emergency blueprint from floor bounds, then add the inner walls and doors, and finally use bright arrows to visually show evacuation directions to fire exits. ConceptDraw is a serious alternative to Visio. It's a desktop based solution aimed at professional designers working in CAD environments. It is also a good option for those who work between Mac and PC because one license is valid for both. Read more

"A smoke detector is a device that detects smoke, typically as an indicator of fire. Commercial, industrial, and mass residential devices issue a signal to a fire alarm system, while household detectors, known as smoke alarms, generally issue a local audible or visual alarm from the detector itself.
Most smoke detectors work either by optical detection (photoelectric) or by physical process (ionization), while others use both detection methods to increase sensitivity to smoke." [Smoke detector. Wikipedia]

"HVAC (stands for Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) is a control system that applies regulation to a heating and/or air conditioning system. Usually a sensing device is used to compare the actual state (e.g., temperature) with a target state. Then the control system draws a conclusion what action has to be taken (e.g., start the blower).
More complex HVAC systems can interface to Building Automation System (BAS) to allow the building owners to have more control over the heating or cooling units. The building owner can monitor the system and respond to alarms generated by the system from local or remote locations." [HVAC control system. Wikipedia]

Hotel Plan. Hotel Plan Examples

The hotels vary hard enough by the rating, service level, cost, size, location, style, and many other parameters. Before beginning the construction of new hotel, inn or a hotel complex, you first need to create a detailed overall hotel plan, the location plans of rooms, lobby, restaurant and other common premises and service rooms. The projects of mini-hotels must use the space particularly rational, at the same time the large hotels can afford spacious halls, banquet halls and even terraces.

The design elements library Tables contains 27 symbols of tables.
Use the vector stencils library Tables to develop house floor plans, home designs, kitchen and dining room design and furniture layout of cafe or restaurant.
"A table is a form of furniture with a flat horizontal upper surface used to support objects of interest, for storage, show, and/or manipulation. The surface must be held stable; for reasons of simplicity, this is usually done by support from below by either a column, a "base", or at least three columnar "stands". In special situations, table surfaces may be supported from a nearby wall, or suspended from above.
Common design elements include:
top surfaces of various shapes, including rectangular, rounded, or semi-circular;
legs arranged in two or more similar pairs;
several geometries of folding table that can be collapsed into a smaller volume;
heights ranging up and down from the most common 18–30 inches (46–76 cm) range, often reflecting the height of chairs or bar stools used as seating for people making use of a table, as for eating or performing various manipulations of objects resting on a table;
presence or absence of drawers;
expansion of the surface by insertion of leaves or locking hinged drop leaf sections into horizontal position.
Desks are tables specifically intended for information-manipulation tasks, including writing and use of interactive electronics.
Tables of various shapes, heights, and sizes are designed for specific uses:
Dining room tables are designed to be used for formal dining.
Bedside tables, nightstands, or night tables are small tables used in a bedroom. They are often used for convenient placement of a small lamp, alarm clock, glasses, or other personal items.
Gateleg tables have one or two hinged leaves supported by hinged legs.
Coffee tables are low tables designed for use in a living room, in front of a sofa, for convenient placement of drinks, books, or other personal items.
Refectory tables are long tables designed to seat many people for meals.
Drafting tables usually have a top that can be tilted for making a large or technical drawing. They may also have a ruler or similar element integrated.
Workbenches are sturdy tables, often elevated for use with a high stool or while standing, which are used for assembly, repairs, or other precision handwork.
Nested tables are a set of small tables of graduated size that can be stacked together, each fitting within the one immediately larger. They are for occasional use (such as a tea party), hence the stackable design." [Table (furniture). Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "HVAC controls" contains 23 symbols of HVAC controls (sensors, actuators, timers, controllers, I/O points).
"HVAC (... Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) is a control system that applies regulation to a heating and/or air conditioning system. ...
Central controllers and most terminal unit controllers are programmable, meaning the direct digital control program code may be customized for the intended use. The program features include time schedules, setpoints, controllers, logic, timers, trend logs, and alarms. The unit controllers typically have analog and digital inputs that allow measurement of the variable (temperature, humidity, or pressure) and analog and digital outputs for control of the transport medium (hot/cold water and/or steam). Digital inputs are typically (dry) contacts from a control device, and analog inputs are typically a voltage or current measurement from a variable (temperature, humidity, velocity, or pressure) sensing device. Digital outputs are typically relay contacts used to start and stop equipment, and analog outputs are typically voltage or current signals to control the movement of the medium (air/water/steam) control devices such as valves, dampers, and motors."
