Equip your site with our alerting expansion system to ensure safety

Do you need to protect your enterprise from lightning strike risk?

Keep your people safe from severe weather on site with our lightning alerting expansion system.

Weatherzone Business delivers WZBob: a scalable visual and audible alarm system that provides simultaneous sitewide alerts to protect your staff and assets when lightning is detected within your thresholds.

WZBob can be customised to your Trigger Action Response Plans (TARPs) and other considerations, ensuring you are securing the safety of your sites based on your existing, functional parameters.

WZBob provides clear, sitewide lightning risk communication for your operations personnel, but also for contractors and visitors who don’t have access to an existing alerting system. The light and sound alerts give everyone on site adequate time to act quickly when thresholds are breached.

With a combination of light beacons and sounders, and a modular, scalable configuration, you can customise the setup to suit any site arrangement and maximise your coverage.

Integrating WZBob with Weatherzone’s Total Lightning Network ensures the most accurate detection and alerting system for your business. Working within your parameters, and with unparalleled detection accuracy (<200m), choose the Total Lightning Network and WZBob to optimise your response to severe weather.

WZBob integrates with your existing lightning detection service, providing increased safety coverage that is scalable.

Automated and Simple Setup

It’s a simple to install and fully automated system that’s supported 24/7 by a real-time system health and monitoring service.
