Automist Tap Mount for kitchen fire protection

A breakthrough in home safety

Automist is an award-winning safety device that integrates seamlessly into existing homes to offer volume protection. A reliable and cost-effective solution, Automist targets at-risk rooms such as the kitchen, where most fires start. Unlike other fire suppression systems, Automist can be run from a standard domestic mains water supply, installing almost invisibly underneath a standard tap. Installation disruption is minimal and annual maintenance involves only a simple and quick test. Automist uses well-established water mist technology to protect life and property, with only 10% of the water usage of a traditional sprinkler system. The system was independently tested at the BRE, but is typically not used to meet building regulations.

Automist is a fire protection device that fills the gap between fire extinguishers and traditional sprinkler systems. Whether you’re a homeowner looking for peace of mind from kitchen fires, or a landlord responsible for safeguarding your tenants, Automist® is changing the way people think about domestic fire protection. Automist uses a high pressure pump to generate a fine water mist from nozzles mounted under a standard tap. The system is designed to protect the kitchen, one of the most fire-prone locations.


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.
