PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT: Remote Fire extinguisher Monitoring System – CEBON and Microdust

Master thesis project on how to inspect fire extinguishers remotely.

– Published 6 May 2022

Fire extinguishers are widely used, vital and mandatory component of fire safety everywhere.
However, inspections are rarely performed. The idea for this thesis study is to explore the most cost-efficient system to monitor:

  • The Extinguisher has not been removed. Sending an alarm when it is pull from it’s mount.
  • Ensures the fundamentals are ready when needed, for example, its pressure is not below safe operating levels.
  • The accessibility is not blocked.
  • Frequently send beacon over a suitable wireless protocol to facility manger, for example, via LoRa, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or other possibilities.
  • Immediately send an alert when fault cases occur.
  • Further options to connect to the fire alarm systems in the facilities.
