Video Smoke Detection

Video Smoke Detection or VSD, is a specific fire detection system that uses standard CCTV cameras linked into special software to pick up smoke activity in an application. This in turn is linked to the main Fire Alarm System to provide audible warning throughout the building.

VSD is useful as it can cover large areas, is not affected by environmental conditions, so false alarms are kept down to a minimum, can be used externally where the use of other fire detection methods would not be fit for purpose, can detect fires very quickly therefore giving the user the possibility of containing and dealing with the situation a lot more quickly.

As the system is specialised so are its applications. Generally power station generator halls, underground transport systems, aircraft hangers and large warehouses are but a few applications
