Our mission at Safecility is to make buildings safer using technology.

We do this by installing sensors which automate safety compliance testing and report on the environment of the building. By installing our sensors compliance is put on autopilot. The sensors replace manual compliance testing meaning tests are always completed on time without having to worry about scheduling resources and planning technician visits. Asset owners get a clear overview of their buildings without needing to leave their office chair.

Compliance as a service allows building owners to install Safecility without any large upfront capital cost.

Payment is made through a monthly subscription charge making it easier for asset owners to streamline their compliance and begin saving in year one.

As part of the service agreement project management of Safecility installation as well as all maintenance for 5 years is included in the contract. After 5 years, ownership of the devices transfers to the customer while data management using our cloud platform continues at a reduced monthly fee.

The ‘internet of things’ or IoT is used to describe devices which have been embedded with sensors, software and actuators to connect them with the internet, share data and even in some cases make the devices work. Like a remote control for your TV, IoT opens up the possibility for millions of devices to be monitored and controlled from afar.

In buildings, IoT can be used to keep an eye on conditions such as air temperature, humidity, occupancy and light levels. IoT can also be used to actuate changes in the building such as turning lights on or off, changing heating controls or opening and closing doors.

The use of IoT gives asset managers connect about what’s going on in the building. They can act quickly and efficiently to manage performance and potential issues making their life easier, and buildings safer and more comfortable for tenants.

NBIoT is a type of low power wide area network technology that Safecility wireless sensors use to communicate. NBIoT was chosen due to its widely available coverage, deep extended range in all styles of buildings and security and reliability. NBIoT is cellular, meaning no hubs or gateways are required for the sensors to operate.

Safecility cost varies according to the size of your estate, how many luminaires are needed and what lighting is already installed. Once we know more about your situation we can prepare a proposal for you outlining costs. As a general guide, clients save between 50% and 75% on their total cost of ownership over 5 years by installing Safecility.

Savings will depend on the number of lights you have and the number of technicians you need at the moment to complete testing. Currently we are working on an online savings calculator to help you quickly figure out how much money you can save.

Yes, we manage the data generated using our software platform. Compliance test scheduling is set by our administrators to adhere to local standards and pass/failure alerts are sent directly to the software platform to inform building managers.

Our solution has been designed using flexible APIs with integration in mind so data management with other systems is possible. Contact us at hello@safecility.com and we’ll be happy to discuss your specific needs.

If you’d like to install Safecility, contact our team on sales@safecility.com. Our controllers are compatible with DALI equipped emergency lights – a survey might be needed to confirm compatibility. Our team can work with you on this or link you with our partners who can support your project.
