Automist Smartscan by Plumis – A Redefinition of the Fire Sprinkler

Introducing Automist Smartscan

Automist Smartscan® is more than a safety device for suppressing fires—it’s a modern design feature. An evolution of the James Dyson award-winning Automist®, the discreet wall-mounted device enables homeowners and architects to design beautifully light and open spaces, while still meeting challenging requirements of building regulations. 

Automist Smartscan® has a rotating head that directly targets fires with a powerful jet of water mist. It has been proven to achieve the same performance as residential sprinkler systems, and uses 90% less water resulting in minimal water damage to the living space. 

Why Automist Smartscan?

Direct targeting – Automist Smartscan® suppresses fires more efficiently by targeting the origin of the fire directly
Meets the highest performance standards – Automist Smartscan® has met the fire performance standards outlined in BS 9252 and BS 8458 DPC.
Minimises damage – Unlike conventional sprinklers, Automist Smartscan® can be stopped once the fire is extinguished, minimising potential water damage
Robust activation – Automist Smartscan® is triggered by reliable heat detectors and therefore is not prone to false alarms like a smoke alarm.
Less disruption – The average retrofit and installation process takes just a few hours with minimal impact to the building or disruption to daily lives.
Low maintenance – The annual maintenance is quick and simple, taking just a few minutes.
Low water usage – Automist Smartscan® typically uses 90% less water than traditional sprinkler systems, minimising consequential water damage.

Over the years we’ve changed how we design our homes. It’s about time we changed how we protect them, too. Automist Smartscan® enables home design to be as beautiful as possible, while meeting industry fire performance standards. It enables more control with easy retrofit and installation. Most importantly, it enables peace of mind that your living space is protected while you’re away.
