Wireless Fire Detection systems.
The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has published data regarding Waking Watch costs through a range of external stakeholders from June to September 2020.
The data collected covers a large variety of buildings but was not collected using a random sampling methodology and may not be nationally representative.
From the MHCLG data:
|Mean monthly Waking Watch cost||England||London||Rest of England|
These costs are every month and will be applied until remedial works are completed a period that could be several years!
A Wireless Fire Detection system can be installed for a one-off cost with only minimal ongoing services costs. The system will pay for itself in just a few weeks and save thousands of pounds in the longer term.
|4 residential blocks with|
191 dwelling units in
Cost for 10 weeks
One-off total Cost
|Cost per Dwelling Unit||£987||£586|
In the above example a Waking Watch solution over 3 years would cost property owners and residents more than £2.8 million! This compares to the £120,000 total cost of Wireless Fire System for the same period.
