“Dynobot tags are one of the most important ways the DynoGuard™ system works. They are a safety feature that automatically deploys a ladder or fire hose when an emergency situation is detected inside your warehouse facility.” The DynoGuard™ system uses twin cameras and computer vision to detect potential fire and life safety threats. There are many sensors inside the warehouse facility that raise the alarm when a dangerous situation is detected.
Perhaps the most important of these alarms is a Dynobot tag being pulled down from one of the shelves. Dynobot tags are one of the most important ways the DynoGuard™ system works. They are a safety feature that automatically deploys a ladder or fire hose when an emergency situation is detected inside your warehouse facility. Dynobot tags work by simply pulling them down. When they come into view of the two Dynobot cameras they are automatically detected.
The energy the Dynobot tag uses to make it drop can be supplied by a number of ways. It can be powered directly from a battery or generator located in or closer to the warehouse facility, or alternatively, it can be run off of a power line inside the warehouse facility by splicing into an existing electrical line via a special voltage regulator known as a “fuse tap.” This fuse tap is capable of supplying up to 200 amp-hours per hour.
1. They have a negative perception about them.
The first reason people rarely use Dynobot tags is because of their perceptions about them. Some people wonder if they will actually work and others believe that they will likely get in the way of normal warehouse activities. Others think that Dynobot tags are expensive to purchase and even more expensive to maintain over time.
These concerns are not unfounded, but there are significant amounts of money that warehouse owners can save by using Dynobot tags instead of hiring additional staff or just paying for the damages caused by possible fires.
2. People Are Unaware Of Them.
It is also possible that people are not aware that Dynobot tags exist at all. This can be caused by lack of advertising, which is often the case when a product is new on the market in terms of fire safety equipment. There are also some warehouse owners who have only heard about them from a friend or from a co-worker and have never actually seen them for themselves.
Even if someone has seen Dynobot tags before, chances are they still don’t know how well they work in real life situations because most fire alarms happen at night when most people aren’t awake or working inside their facilities.
3. They Are Inconvenient.
Another reason that people rarely use Dynobot tags is because they are inconvenient. It may take a while before the fire alarm actually goes off and it takes even longer to wait for the ladder or fire hose to deploy itself when an emergency situation occurs inside of the warehouse facility. This requires that employees have faith in the DynoGuard™ system, which might not be reasonable given its newness on the market and lack of proven track record in terms of fire safety equipment.
A warehouse owner may decide to install the Dynobot tags but never actually use them because they don’t want to spend the time waiting for them to deploy in the event of an emergency situation. Some people simply have no patience for waiting and would rather have nothing at all than something that takes too long.
4. They Aren’t Impressive Enough.
Even if a Dynobot tag works exactly how it should every single time, this still might not be good enough for some people. A lot of warehouse owners feel like they need to invest in something more impressive like a fire sprinkler system, which can cost well over $10,000 to install over three floors of a warehouse facility before even adding any additional equipment.
These systems do work, but they may not be of much use in the case of a fire because they will only go off if their water source is absolutely saturated and will take several seconds to activate. They are also fairly obnoxious in terms of the amount of dust they cause along with the footsteps they make.
5. They Are Expensive To Use.
Another reason that people rarely use Dynobot tags is because it actually costs money to use them. It costs money to purchase a Dynobot tag and it costs even more money to run it off of an electrical line or battery so that it can be used for use on an emergency basis whenever an emergency situation is detected inside the warehouse facility.
This money would be better spent on paying for warehouse employees and even the costs of purchasing and maintaining fire safety equipment like fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, and sprinklers. The money that is being saved from not having to hire additional workers might be better spent on avoiding overtime pay rates or even just repairing property damage caused by a possible fire.
