An annual service check is good for you, the fog cannon, your
customer and us
As the manufacturer, we recommend that you as an
alarm installation contractor conclude a security fog protection
service agreement with your customers. A service check should be
carried out once a year.
Providing your security fog protection customers with an
annual service check gives you the opportunity to you stay in
contact with your customers. And like a car, regular service
extends the life of the fog cannon. Customers are satisfied and
feel safe when everything has been checked and is in proper working
order. Finally, this is a good way to ensure that your customer
will recommend your business and our security fog protection to
What does a service check include?
A service check consists of checking signals, batteries, fog
fluid level and any error reports. Batteries that are more than two
years old should be replaced. Inspect the fog fluid manually - if
it is yellow, it needs replacing. The shelf life of an installed
fluid container is two years.
You should also check that the nozzle is not blocked and that
there are no signs of vandalism or sabotage.

Activation of the fog cannon
We recommend that you test-fire the fog cannon as the final step
of the service check. This does not necessarily have to be a full
activation. It is a good idea to use your own service fluid
container rather than consuming the customer's fluid. Before you
leave the customer, you should begin airing out the space.
If the building also has an automatic fire alarm system installed,
it is a good idea to test-fire the fog cannon, for example for one
minute, in order to properly test the interaction of the fire alarm
system with the fog cannon.
