Sprinkler systems can help in an emergency, to put out a fire at an early stage and to avoid greater damage. But so far use them mostly on the principle much helps a lot. Because if the sensors detect a fire, all sprinklers go and put the appropriate space under water. So then, relatively small fires can lead to significant water damage. Of course, water damage is still better than a burned-out apartment, but the London company, Plumis has now developed an interesting alternative. The Automist SmartScan system to locate the source of the fire and bring water there specifically to the usage.

To enable this, smart technology is used. So, a sensor that scans the room for unusual heat development is located on the ceiling. In case of a fall, this then raises an alarm and activates the individual sprinkler. These are however not on the ceiling and on the walls of the room. From there, they discover the hottest body in the room using an infrared scanner. This fire is fired then specifically with water until the temperature as far as dropped, that it represents no danger. Ideally the system clears not only fires, but does still extremely cost-effective, because the water and heating costs are limited to a minimum.
