Spy System is the most advanced system for the complete management, supervision and maintenance of an emergency system with self-contained luminaires.

  • New and more intuitive graphics
  • Virtual keypad on touch screen LCD
  • Possibility to update station software
  • Possibility to modify the appliance's serial numbers
  • Possibility to switch ON/OFF maintained luminaires *
  • Possibility to change the light intensity *
  • * Only on predisposed LED luminaires

    Test management allows to choose the test day and time for each of the 32 groups into which the system is divided. It was conceived to be easily integrated with modern building automation systems. In fact, it has an Ethernet port with TCP/IP protocol: the standard for all modern technological systems. The station is also equipped with a Web Server for access to all of its functions via internet, using a common browser.



    Spy System controls the efficiency of the emergency system in compliance with EN 50172 and UNI 11222. It signals and records any anomalies that the system displays by running two types of periodic tests on the connected emergency luminaires:

    1. Functional test
    The general functioning of the luminaire, and in particular the light source, are tested. A negative result indicates that the tube needs to be replaced.
    2. Duration test
    A shortage of electrical energy is simulated. The luminaire is lit via the internal battery until it is completely discharged. In this way, it is possible to measure the real autonomy of the emergency luminaire and compare it with nominal. The failure of this test indicates that the battery should be replaced.

    The station is set-up to carry out the functional test every 15 days and the duration test every 90 days. These frequencies can be varied to ones liking by operating on both the entire system and groups of luminaires.
    Even the parameters for the running of the test can be changed. For example, the 2-hour duration test can be arranged for a 3-hour duration luminaire if such duration is required for the specific application. In this way, it is possible to have a system that lasts longer over time.


    The station manages a complete event log on non-volatile memory. In addition to the test results, all the events that occur on the system, such as emergency interventions or any inhibitions, are memorized.
    The event log can be viewed on the display and printed on the built-in printer. By connecting to an on-site PC or remotely via the intranet/internet network, the event log can be accessed and copied onto the PC for subsequent elaborations.



    To connect with the Spy System station, whether it is PC linked to the station via local network or internet, no specific program is necessary. In fact, the station is equipped with a web server that allows access to all the functionalities. With the use of a common browser for Internet (for example, Chrome or Firefox), it works with all operating systems, Windows, Mac or Linux.
    Maximum flexibility and minimum cost.
