Camera based automatic fire detection is the latest technology to efficiently identify the presence of smoke or fire in areas previously deemed to be impractical for typical smoke detectors. Traditional smoke and fire detection methods require the fire signatures such as smoke or heat to travel to the device, whereas, Video Smoke Detection, offered by Tech Electronics, detects the fire at the source. Its ability to detect fire remains independent of architecutral and environmental conditions that affect traditional detection methods. VSD can automatically identify the distinct characteristics of smoke and flame patterns and is able to detect smoke and/or fire in any area visible to a standard video camera, even through window or door glass.
A few benefits of Video Smoke Detection are:
- Quick Investigation and False Alarm Rejection
- Detection Not Affected by Ceiling Height
- Unrestricted Zoning
- Outside/Exterior Applications
