What is Automist®?

Automist® is an intelligent fire suppression system widely used and incorporated into the fire strategy of developments large and small.

Automist® activates electronically, overcoming any constraints of current sprinkler systems by operating earlier. This system activates before the temperature is too hot and the fire has spread uncontrollably. Automist® is proven to operate 2.0 to 13.7 times quicker than a concealed sprinkler.  

  • Rapid & low disruption installation
    Easy to install with a flexible hose, great for retrofit
  • Life Saving Performance
    Fast activation reduces heat and toxic smoke
  • Uses the normal water supply
    Using a tenth of the water used by a traditional sprinkler

Watch how it works


With fire safety, every second counts. The earlier active fire suppression systems (AFSS) initiate, the smaller the size of the fire. The smaller the fire, the easier it is to suppress or extinguish, minimising exposure to smoke, heat and toxic gases.

Automist® raises an alarm at the earliest possible time, triggered by a combined heat and smoke detector.

Tests have shown Automist® can address a fire two minutes before a glass bulb sprinkler system has operated.

Watch the difference

The majority of people will be aware of what a traditional fire sprinkler looks like and how it works. Although they are effective, particularly on large, fast-growing fires, they are less effective at suppressing slow-growing, smouldering fires, which can still produce lethal and toxic smoke very quickly. 

Automist® is an award-winning fire suppression system which has been designed to detect fire earlier and activate faster, ensuring safer outcomes for people in their homes.
