Will the Automist device (video below) become a standard addition to telecare (plesiocare?) providers’ product offerings? However they incorporate it into their business models (via referral commissions or as an accredited installer?), the device is an interesting proposition for them and for care homes too.
“Automist is a sprinkler-alternative for full room active fire protection, which offers freedom and flexibility to provide modern, contemporary, open-plan residential layouts whilst still complying with Building Regulations, the RRFSO and keeping occupants safe. Automist was extensively tested by BRE and is bringing active fire protection to homes where previously it was cumbersome or impractical.” It won a James Dyson Award in 2009 and the company is looking for international resellers.
