Nexus Monitoring System

Emergency Lighting Exit Sign and Battery Unit Monitoring and Testing System.

Nexus is an emergency lighting management system that allows the user to see the real-time status of the entire emergency lighting and exit sign system, run system diagnostics, perform required monthly and annual functional tests, generate maintenance logs, run compliance reports and perform other system-critical functions quickly and easily all from a central control unit.

Compared to manual management, automated monitoring is more efficient and less costly and provides higher quality data that is not subject to human error.

Features & Benefits

In the interest of public safety, Building & Life Safety Codes outlines the obligations of building owners in relation to testing and monitoring of Exit signs and Emergency Lighting, to ensure the safe evacuation of occupants in an emergency. It is the responsibility of a building owner to ensure that:

  • Functional testing of emergency lighting is conducted at 30 day intervals
  • Functional testing of emergency lighting is conducted annually
  • Emergency lighting equipment, including exit signs, is fully operational for the duration of the test required

Complying with these requirements can be very expensive and labor intensive, especially in larger buildings where testing requires many labor hours spent manually inspecting and monitoring every emergency lighting unit. In addition, the disruption of the power supply during inspection can put public safety at risk.
