What people say

This simple but clever device should become a permanent safety feature in the home. Smoke alarms are an essential part of modern life but have remained fundamentally unchanged for forty years. Automist not only detects a fire but can put it out as well.

Sir James Dyson

British inventor & founder of the Dyson company

(Speaking after Yusuf Muhammad, Plumis Co-founder & Chief Design Officer won the James Dyson Award in 2009 for the original tap-mounted Automist system).

An innovative design concept that elevates the principle of fire sprinklers to a new level. The system is defined as an integrated part of the interior and equipped with highly advanced functionality. The topic of fire safety is thus expanded by a pathbreaking novel interpretation. This fire sprinkler system emerged as a design element within a living space, unifying safety with elegance.

I have little doubt in my mind that this product will have a major influence in enhancing safety within the home for many years to come....I have no hesitation in recommending this innovative product across the entire almshouse movement.

Trevor Hargreaves

Deputy Director of The Almhouse Association

Automist is a fantastic fire safety product and an enabler of great design. I now have the freedom to configure a property in the best way for my client’s needs while still meeting important building control regulations. It’s affordable and the unobtrusive nozzles don’t get in the way of the design. As soon as I found out about Automist it was a no-brainer. My clients never imagined they’d be able to have the kitchen I created for them when we started the project.
