Sound the Alarm: SmartNet Signals the End of Waking Watches!

  • 21st May 2024

Watch the video below from Stephen Marsh, Head of Sales at Cygnus, to learn more about Waking Watches and find out how our EN 54 certified, 100% wireless fire detection and alarm system, SmartNet, can be the ideal solution to replace Waking Watches and improve fire safety.

What is a Waking Watch?

Waking Watches provide an interim fire safety measure, providing 24-hour patrol of buildings in search of signs of fire, with the goal to provide sufficient warning if a fire is identified. They are a requirement in buildings where dangerous cladding has been found and the ‘stay put’ evacuation policy has been changed to simultaneous evacuation.

Whilst a cladding replacement plan is underway, this uncertain timeframe leaves occupants, building owners, and property management companies burdened with ongoing expenses and continuous concern related to the temporary fire safety measure of Waking Watches.
