Data Analyzing

The algorithm makes an informed decision based on the extracted features



Smoke Alarm

Once smoke has been detected and confirmed, the app will sound an alarm and send a mobile notification


Software Features

About Smoke Detective

Smoke Detective has developed and patented a soon-to-be industry standard technological platform that will turn any camera-enabled smart device into a smoke detector without the need for calibration or additional hardware. Our software is a visual based smoke detection system designed to work on the device, in the cloud, or at the central station.

Our Goals

  • Dramatically Increase the number of working smoke detectors by enabling existing video cameras and other camera enabled smart devices to monitor for smoke
  • Make current monitoring systems more efficient and accurate. A human watching a single video monitor for more than twenty minutes loses 95% of their ability to maintain the needed attention to discern significant events such as the presence of smoke. Many facilities have dozens or even hundreds of cameras; we believe Smoke Detective can help make your existing security protocol more efficient and effective.
  • Reduce the trauma caused by fires, once finalized Smoke Detective plans to give the basic Smartphone app away for free, dramatically increasing the number of smoke detectors and as a result, reducing fire losses.
