DeafWatch™

DeafWatch transmitter

Fire alarm paging system for persons who have a hearing impairment

Ever wondered how persons who are deaf know there is a fire alarm especially when the are asleep or alone in the workplace? Yes, well read on.................


DeafWatch™ is a leading fire alarm warning system in the UK where the DeafWatch™ transmitter is connected to a building’s fire alarm system via monitored interfaces on the addressable loop (or a direct connection). We recommend connections are made with fire-rated cable. When the fire alarm system activates, the fire alarm opens a pair of volt-free contacts (or vice versa). This is detected by the DeafWatch™ transmitter, which repeatedly and simultaneously transmits an alarm message to all pagers with­in range, until the contacts are reversed by the building’s fire alarm system. Thus, all persons who have a hearing impairment that are in the building with DeafWatch™  coverage are notified of a fire condition. The pagers can also be worn on the wrist or ankle so warning is given should the fire alarm activate when such persons are asleep.   ™ 

We are the official distributor in the Asia region

If you are interested in DeafWatch™ and would like to learn more on how this system can help protect vulnerable persons with hearing impairments in the event of fire then please use the CONTACT US button.
