Smart Monitoring of Safety Showers and Eye Washes


Take protection of your workforce to the next level, and get connected!

Connect from Hughes is an emergency safety shower and eye/face wash monitoring system offering 24/7 tracking of your equipment.

This dashboard reporting tool, developed in partnership with Microsoft®, provides data on water supply pressure, ambient temperatures and tank shower water levels, as well as instant alerts if maintenance is required or if a unit has been activated. Periodical flushes, required by both EN15154 and ANSI Z358.1-2014 standards, are automatically logged and stored in a secure cloud platform meaning the need for onsite physical record keeping and checks are no longer required. 

  • How does it work?
    Sensors are fitted to the shower and/or eye wash to monitor activation, tank levels and water temperature. Encrypted messages are sent from the sensors to a central gateway(s) providing live metrics on the status and performance of the equipment. The gateway must be connected to the internet either via Wi-Fi or a LAN connection - these securely speak to the Hughes cloud based system storing the information safely. Alerts are sent when the water temperature is out of range, the water level is low or when an activation takes place.
  • How are the instant alerts received?
    Preventative maintenance alerts can be sent to any number of people within an organisation, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Can this be retrofitted to existing equipment?
    Safety showers and eye washes in good working order can be fitted with the hardware free of charge when signing up to a service contract and the subscription based dashboard reporting tool. If you are purchasing new safety equipment, the hardware can be added at time of manufacture.
  • What is the cost?
    Connect smart monitoring from Hughes is a subscription based service and can be added to either our Essential or EssentialPlus service packages. Costs are determined based on your unique site requirements.
