Smart Detection for Safer Facilities


By June 2021, all new system-connected smoke detectors must pass new UL 268 7th edition standards.The Optica detector is early compliant, thanks to its patented multi-criteria optical smoke sensing technology. Read the whitepaper now.


Only the Optica detector uses our patented optical sensor to differentiate between nuisance particles like cooking smoke, dust or steam, and serious hazards, only reacting to those that pose a threat. The result is a drastic reduction in nuisance alarms.


In addition to the state-of-the art multi-criteria optical sensor, the Optica detector also has models that include heat and CO sensing to cover a full range of detection applications, which means you can specify a smarter system.

You don't have to choose between compliance and cost, thanks to backwards compatible features that allow for forward migration without systems updates. Retrofit an existing facility without any rewiring and allow continuous self-diagnostics to ensure long-haul reliability.
