The Automist® Smartscan  (pictured) directs the mist at the fire, rather than treating the entire area as would be the case with more traditional sprinklers or the Automist® Fixed Wall Head.

Automist® Smartscan is more than a safety device for suppressing fires – it’s a modern design feature for open plan living. 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 meeting the challenging requirements of building regulations.


fire extinguishing

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 fire performance as residential sprinkler systems, and typically uses 90% less water minimising consequential water damage to the living space.
