Silent Knight Software/Firmware Updates

Stay up-to-date with the latest Silent Knight programming software and product firmware to ensure you have all the latest product features and performance improvements.

Honeywell Fire Software Suite (HFSS)

HFSS is the latest Honeywell Silent Knight programming software designed for the 6000 Series line of fire alarm control panels. HFSS expands on the previous SKSS platform and is required for programming the 6700, 6808, 6820 and 6820EVS panels. HFSS has been updated to include newly released products and makes it easier than ever before to program new features. Note: HFSS is designed for use with the 6000 Series panels, but now has an importer tool to convert legacy SKSS files to HFSS files. Apart from converting legacy to current panels, SKSS should continue to be used for the previous 5000 Series line of fire alarm control panels.
