Fog Cannon Security

Fog Cannon Subsidy

Protect your retail shop with a fog cannon

If you run a small retail business you may be eligible for a $4,000 subsidy to get a fog cannon installed.

Fog cannons can fill a shop with dense fog in seconds, stopping criminals from seeing what’s going on and preventing further damage or theft.

How Fog Cannons Work

A fog cannon is a security device that generates a thick fog to prevent theft or burglary by obscuring the vision of intruders. The fog cannon uses a combination of water and glycerin or glycol to create a dense mist, which is then expelled through a nozzle into the surrounding area.

The fog cannon is triggered by an alarm system or manually through a remote control. When activated, the fog cannon heats up the mixture of water and glycerin or glycol, turning it into a thick fog that is expelled into the surrounding area. The fog is typically non-toxic and dissipates quickly once the fog cannon is turned off.

The fog generated by the fog cannon can reduce visibility to less than one meter, making it almost impossible for intruders to see and navigate within the protected area. This makes it an effective deterrent against theft and burglary, as it can prevent intruders from being able to locate and steal valuable items.

Full Peace of Mind

A key benefit of a fog cannon is that it can be integrated with existing security systems, such as alarms and cameras, to provide a comprehensive security solution. When the alarm is triggered, the fog cannon can automatically activate, creating a fog barrier that can help to slow down or deter intruders while also alerting security personnel or law enforcement.

Overall, installing a fog cannon can provide small retail businesses with an added layer of security that can help to prevent burglary and theft, protect valuable assets, and provide peace of mind for business owners and employees.


It is important to have a fog cannon installed by a qualified installer for several reasons:

  1. Safety: Fog cannons can be hazardous if the fog is not properly ventilated, as it can displace the air and reduce oxygen levels. Our qualified installer will ensure that the fog cannon is installed in a safe and secure location, and that it is properly ventilated to prevent any potential safety hazards.
  2. Effectiveness: A fog cannon is only effective if it is installed in the right location and configured correctly. Our qualified installer will have the experience and expertise to assess the layout of the premises and determine the best location and configuration for the fog cannon to maximize its effectiveness.
  3. We offer a guarantee for the installation. If there are any issues or problems with the fog cannon after installation, our installer will be able to address them.

Subsidy Application Criteria

Not all retailers will be eligible for the subsidy. It is targeted at small retail businesses. To be able to access the support, you will need to meet all the following criteria:

  • Have road frontage
  • Have five or less total staff
