Such as temperature detectors, water detectors, all-in-one burglary units and also a best-selling power failure alarm, the Mobeye PowerGuard.


Ambulances, fire stations, health authorities

"Many organizations are highly dependent on the presence of electricity," says Jack van de Vijver, Managing Director of Mobeye. "If power failure occurs, they must take action as soon as possible. Quick notification is therefore crucial. No need for big, integrated systems. A solution like the PowerGuard is very effective for these situations. "One of the public safety regions in The Netherlands uses the alarm for its ambulance services, fire brigades and health area authorities (GGD's). Both manned and unmanned locations are concerned. In case of a network or telephone failure, users of the alarm unit know directly whether power failure is the cause. This prevents network administrators being called in for no reason. In addition, the alarm units tells employees if the cooling units with vaccinations are affected. "
