Checkpoint Products can design an effective emergency evacuation system for your factory, warehouse, construction site, building or any other workplace.

How does the Cygnus evacuation system work?

The Cygnus Wireless Alarm System is a reliable siren system featuring easy pushbutton activation that activates all units on site once one unit is activated; battery-powered siren operation allowing you to safely evacuate your site even in a power outage; wireless mesh network enabling each device on site to act as a repeater for the wireless signal; and LED strobe lights incorporated in some models.

Advanced features also available with Cygnus wireless alarm systems include SMS text message alerts sent to the team’s mobile phones; radio voice alerts broadcast over site radios; Cygnus control panel monitoring the system automatically with a display screen of where the alert was initiated; siren delays added for different zones; free programming app available to change the settings and activate other functions; and interface panels to interlink the Cygnus system with the existing system/ infrastructure.


Common evacuation call points – these devices trigger a site-wide evacuation in the event of an emergency or evacuation drill.

Once your evacuation system is in place, it is important to test the system regularly, record the tests as per company policy, ensure all employees know where to assemble, have a maintenance plan in place, ensure the sirens can be heard/ strobe lights are visible in all required areas, and make sure your WHS adviser confirms the system is compliant for your application.

The Checkpoint team can assist with the design of an emergency system for factory evacuation, warehouse evacuation, building evacuation or any site evacuation requirement.
