Synthetic smoke detector

August 1, 2019  By SP&T News staff

Nortek’s 2GIG Smoke Heat Freeze Detector is a new sensor that is designed to recognize smoke from synthetic materials and decrease nuisance alarms from cooking. While traditional smoke detectors identify smoke and trigger an alarm when the smoke density has reached a specific level, the 2GIG Smoke Heat Freeze Detector uses advanced algorithms and a sophisticated optical chamber to recognize the difference in smoke particles created by synthetic materials versus normal cooking events. It triggers the alarm faster if the synthetic smoke is detected, which leads to fewer nuisance alarms than traditional smoke detectors, according to the company.
