Emergency lighting within a commercial establishment is something that needs to be tested, checked and maintained on a consistent basis.
Our question to you - what if you could do all of this remotely?
Complete control and access from anywhere
With our emergency lighting remote monitoring service we have, and allow you, complete access, control and visibility of all your emergency lighting luminaires.
We make them fully accessible from any device, whether that be your desktop computer, laptop, smart phone, or even tablet, at any time, and anywhere in the world.
We offer all types of luminaries, from:

Lithium Ion Batteries
Emergency lighting evolves with technology and LED is now the main light source used for safety, performance and reliability. What has lagged behind is the battery technology, that is until recently with the advent of reliable Lithium-ion technology.
Previously, emergency lighting (which is always the last consideration in a new build or refurbishment) operated on mains voltage Halogen, fluorescent or occasionally compact fluorescent lamps.
These light sources worked well with NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) batteries which invariably have a lower energy density and they tend to self-discharge so need a constant trickle charge. However, they are cost-effective and were used for a long time in the industry mainly due to their wide temperature range compared with other available technologies such as SLA (sealed lead acid).
Then along came NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride), an environmentally friendly technology, which although has a narrower acceptable temperature range, typically had a 30 to 40% higher energy density than NiCd. They were also less susceptible to “memory effect” associated with NiCd.
Below shows a clear breakdown of the benefits of Lithium Ion batteries, and a comparison with these other technologies.
The below chart below further illustrates the advantages of Lithium, as we can see it shows an NiCd battery coming to the end of its lifecycle after four to five years, where as the Lithium-Ion cells are still going strong.
See how lithium performs in comparison to other battery types in the graph below:
Valve-Regulated Lead-Acid (VRLA)
Nickel–cadmium battery (NiCd)
Nickel- metal hydride battery (NiMH)
Over a 5 year period, using 1000 emergency lights with Lithium-Ion batteries rather than NiCd on this example scheme, would save the client £33,507 in energy bills alone. Maintenance costs from replacing batteries are halved and testing emergency lights with Remo-Tech devices means that all data will be recorded and controlled in one portal removing any manual testing on site.
Environmentally friendly (Lithium batteries are not hazardous waste)
Lightweight & Compact
High energy density packs a bigger punch
Low maintenance, can be charged at any time
Operates at higher temperatures
More discharge cycles so longer lasting useful life
Low self-discharge rate (3/5% monthly)
Shorter charging times reduces time/cost on site to do testing
See a return on investment in less than 1 year!
Automated fault recording
Any faults or issues with lighting or battery life are recordered instantly with an automated alert sent out to the relevant personel for further attention. Individual luminaires are pinpointed and so are easily checked.
Compliance tests are carried out automatically and our system generates the test reports, which we are also able to print and send to you should you require a hard copy for your files.
Easily track and monitor standard light fittings within your premises
Regardless of whether it is an individual fitting or a group of fittings, thankfully, due to our onboard tracking system we can accurately monitor and record data for each and every luminarie. These can be found on our dashboard with clear and easy to understand metrics for both ourselves and the client to access from anywhere in the world.
Self test & self charge capabillities
We are able to not only fit emergency lighting that will self charge, but we also provide fittings that have the capability to self test too.
A central control unit automatically schedules self tests for each of the emergency lights and stores the results of the tests in memory. We are able to remotely monitor both self-contained and centrally supplied emergency lighting systems.
We can set up emergency lighting that will operate specifically to how your workplace requires it to.
Completely bespoke to how you wish it to function, whether it be a mixture of standard operation, or if you wish lighting systems to have self test and self charge capabilities.
Easily adaptable to any existing lighting infrastructure that you may already have in place.
