Smokers ALERT® is not intended to replace traditional stationary smoke detectors, but to bring that extra layer of fire safety directly to the actual seat of that potential cigarette fire for the very first time, a critical area where traditional stationary smoke detectors simply can't provide immediate protection for those intimately involved with ignition.

No cigarette is truly 100% fire-safe for reducing deaths where victims are intimately involved in smoker's carelessness. According to the testing procedures prescribed in ASME 2187, Standard Test Method for Measuring the Ignition Strength of Cigarettes, commonly referred to as the fire-safe cigarette, for every 40 cigarettes tested, no more than 25% are permitted to burn their entire length. The scale of the problem lies in the numbers. In 2006, Americans consumed over 400 billion cigarettes. Even if every state were to enact fire-safe cigarette legislation, 100 billion cigarettes would legally be permitted to burn from tip to tip.

 

 

 

WHAT IT IS...An Intelligent Ashtray


Smokers ALERT® has been designed and engineered to deal specifically with fire risks associated with smoker's carelessness. Smokers ALERT® provides reliable early detection and advanced warning of smoldering type fires before they erupt into flame. It will alert the user of the following occurrences:  
 

1.    Leaving/forgetting  the lit unattended cigarette  in the ashtray;

 

2.    If the stability of the ashtray has been compromised, accidently tipped or knocked over allowing that lit cigarette to fall out (smoking in bed, on the couch or in that favorite easy chair, etc;)  

        

3.   Smoke, any smoke, in close proximity of the ashtray (smoldering type fire typically from a  lit cigarette on clothing, carpet, furniture, bedding, etc;)

 

 

Smoldering fires typically associated with cigarette ignitions generate too little heat during the fire's prolonged early stages to carry the smoke aloft to the areas where it can be detected by traditional smoke detectors.

 

Smokers ALERT®  puts smoke detection technology where it is needed most - at the seat of the fire in the early, survivable stages of the fire.  

Smokers ALERT® SOUNDS THE ALARM MUCH CLOSER TO THE DOZING SMOKER’S EAR than traditionally placed smoke detectors, resulting in a much higher probability that the SMOKER WILL BE AWAKENED.

 

EARLIER DETECTION PLUS MORE INTENSELY PERCEIVED ALERT =  MUCH GREATER PROTECTION FROM ACCIDENTAL CIGARETTE FIRES
