Soteria Optical Smoke Detector

The Soteria Optical Smoke Detector uses new optical sensing technology, PureLight®, to detect smoke particles entering the chamber.

PureLight marks a new stage in the development of optical technology and aims to reduce the possibility of false alarms whilst increasing the reliability of detection of a real fire.

The low-profile design of the Soteria Optical Smoke Detector is sleek and evolutionary, with a 360° LED indicator which illuminates red when in alarm, yellow to indicate a fault and green to indicate protocol activity.
