the VGS 12V DC Smoke Screen - physical prevention
as seen on ITV1's "Police
12V smoke security system is ideally suited to vehicle
security applications and differs from alarms and other security
devices by physically preventing thieves from seeing.
Our smoke security system is a compact unit
which is both user and installer friendly. The unit is 12
volt DC car battery powered (a 24V version is also available).
The fog is totally harmless to both person and
property but is extremely unpleasant to remain in. The intruder
will make a hasty retreat and most certainly will not be able
to see to steal or cause damage.
The unit can be used in vehicles of varying sizes by regulating
the flow of fog. In this way you can generate the volume of
fog necessary to cater for the size of the area being protected.
small size (154mm length x 43mm height x 60mm depth) allows
it to be easily housed in small spaces such as under seats
or even suspended in either the passenger or drivers footwell.
The most important consideration in locating the unit is to
optimise the smoke dispersion.
In standby the unit draws no current whatsoever.
On activation it reaches operating temperature in less than
three seconds and then immediately produces impressive volumes
of smoke to hide tools and equipment or simply to make the
vehicle very unpleasant to be in.
The unit uses a coiled, stainless steel heat
exchanger and a microprocessor control circuit with in-built
safety features to prevent discharge in a moving vehicle.
The specially formulated smoke fluid is contained in a container
from where it is pumped into the heat exchanger inside the
The unit has an integral timer allowing the
installer to regulate, at the touch of a button, the amount
of smoke discharged. It also has the facility to trigger a
pager and/or siren and/or voice module as well as remote arming/disarming.
There are both positive and negative trigger
inputs that can be linked to an existing alarm system (or
other sensors) including door pin switches, ultra-sonic and/or
microwave etc. By using the various optional extras the unit
can also be used without need for another alarm.
The length of each smoke activation will determine
the number of times you can use the system before having to
refill the smoke fluid reservoir. 500ml should provide around
15 minutes of total smoke production. There is a low fluid
indicator light to ensure the unit is always ready to work.
This system is safe for use
in motor vehicles as well as vans, boats, caravans and buildings.
For your home...
The unit can be easily installed
in small rooms as a cheaper yet equally as effective alternative
to the costly smoke screen systems in commercial retail installations.
A large number of our customers use the unit in their garage,
shed/workshop and home office in conjunction with a car battery
and trickle charger with an existing alarm system or PIR sensor.
