Frequently Asked Questions

Embarr Argus™ is the world’s most intelligent automated fire detection system. In the event of a bushfire, leaving early is always the safest option. With Embarr Argus™ installed you can activate your bushfire plan and leave with your family, pets and valuables, knowing your property is protected.

The system has been designed based on the recommendations of CSIRO research about the effectiveness of fire protection systems. Embarr is the result of thousands of hours of product development by University researchers, electrical engineers and Australian based electronics manufacturers.

Studies by the Bushfire CRC and CSIRO have shown that 90% of structures catch alight due to embers up to 30 minutes before a fire front arrives or are burnt down during the 12 hours after a fire front either due to direct ember attack or by attack from nearby structures, trees or bushland that is burning.

Embarr’s patent pending Embarr Argus technology, constantly monitor any fire activity around your property and is able to detect small fires created from embers as well as incoming fire-fronts. Proprietary bushfire threat escalation algorithms automatically switch your sprinkler system on and off in response to the bushfire threat.

Embarr Argus ensures your property remains wet while managing the available water and pump fuel to maximise the operation of your bushfire sprinkler system for an extended period of time. This reduces the potential for damage due to flame, radiant heat or ember attack both before and well after a fire front.

There is no need to be home, Embarr’s intelligent computer will automatically turn on your Argus bushfire sprinkler system when a bushfire threat is detected.

As part of your Embarr Argus purchase you will receive a 24-month limited parts and labour warranty against any manufacturing or installation defects.
