Sophisticated fire detection systems for many years have been designed to
trigger an alarm when the detection system detects the presence of UV
(Ultraviolet) light. Unique devices called UV Flame Detectors continually "look"
at their environment and are "blind" to most sources of infrared and visible
light, the trick is to only detect and sense UV light which is the signature of
Fire has heat and visible light but so do many other things such as
heaters, human bodies and of course light bulbs. These sources of heat and light
do not generate UV and therefore are not fire.

When one strikes a match, flicks a cigarette lighter then the developing
flame generates a unique ultraviolet light signature. Our systems detect the
ultraviolet light from the initiating flame. Once we've detected the onset of
fire then all we have to do is let you know it happened.
The optimal system includes a
receiver to receive from many
modules/sensors in conjunction with a paging
transmitter. The receiver can receive from
up to 16 different receiver codes. (More
than sixteen are planned shortly). Remember
multiple sensors in the same bathroom or
washroom can have the same code! The
receiver then transfers the alarm signal to
the paging transmitter and send the code for
that washroom to one or more pagers. A
minimum of two pagers are recommended, one
each for a male and female staff member.
Multiple pagers can be used in large
