Video Smoke Detection System

Reliable, Robust, Ultra Fast Smoke Detection for high-risk environments

In high risk and operations-critical areas, having a reliable fire detection system is essential.

What is Video Smoke Detection?

Video Smoke Detection is a new technology based on algorithmically analysing video images from a CCTV camera network. This system allows you to detect a fire risk in its earliest stages – as soon as the smoke becomes visible. This could cut minutes (or even hours) off the detection speed compared to most ‘standard’ fire detection systems.

If you’re operating in a harsh processing environment or a well-ventilated or high-roofed building, video smoke detection will make your site safer.

Video Smoke Detection cuts out the lag-time between an incident starting, and smoke or heat rising to activate a ceiling-mounted detection system

Why use Video Smoke Detection?

High-roofed buildings, open building sides/doors and a continually harsh and dusty environment are common characteristics of the waste recycling industry.

All of these characteristics can undermine the effectiveness of your fire detection systems, delaying detection speed and giving the fire time to develop. Rising smoke can get blown away – or never even reach the roof due to stratification.

Flame Detection systems are often too slow. By the time they activate, a fire is already burning in your plant.

Video Smoke Detection is the answer. It’s reliable, detects smoke within seconds and gives you immediate visual verification of the detected risk.

Case Title Description Video Link
Video Smoke Detection For Warehousing
At roof heights above 7-10 metres, ceiling mounted smoke detection such as point type, beam or aspirating detectors may be unsuitable. This is due to a phenomenon called 'Stratification', which is where the smoke hits a layer of warmer air in the roof void which prevents it from rising further. Instead, the smoke just flattens out on this thermal layer, never reaching the ceiling mounted detectors.
Video Smoke Detection For Waste Recycling
This video shows Smokecatcher Video Smoke Detection detecting a simulated fire at a waste recycling facility, demonstrating the incredible speed of detection which can be achieved!
Video Smoke Detection in MSW Hall (Real Fire Incident)
This video shows a real fire incident which was detected at a waste recycling facility by video smoke detection, outside of the facilities operational hours. Remarkably, the fire detected wasn’t even in the same building as the video smoke detection (VSD), but was in an adjoining area.
Video Smoke Detection for Waste Recycling (real incident) – SRF Storage Fire
This video shows a real-life incident where unfortunately the clients site burned down. Smokecatcher was working properly and detected the fire as shown – giving 4 hours of pre-warning. Unfortunately for the client their fire alarm monitoring wasn’t operating and by the time the alarm was raised externally it was too late.
