Smoke Alarm Provides 24/7 Alert Against Fire
While a fire extinguisher allows you to fight a fire, it is equally, if not more important to be alerted to a fire first, so that you have a chance to fight (or escape from) the fire. A smoke alarm aims to provide that first alert of fire as all fires started with smoke first.

A large proportion, if not alI, of residential fires started as slow smoldering fires. Such fires are characterized by large amount of thick (toxic) smoke in the pre-fire stage, before the fire breaks out. Furthermore, statistically, it is the smoke (inhalation) that actually kills more people than the actual fire itself. If it is not already clear, a smoke alarm is an essential piece of fire prevention measures.
To iterate, smoke alarms alert you to the first sign of impending fire - the smoke. And because it is operational 24/7, it alerts you even when you are asleep.
Introducing our OSD-01 Smoke Alarm
No False Alarms
Our smoke alarms are anti-dust, anti-bug by design, unlike most other models where dust can easily get into the sensor, affecting its sensitivity. You can see the huge difference in vents opening between our smoke alarm and the normal smoke alarm.
Ease Of Mounting
No drilling required. You simply attach the mounting bracket to the ceiling with 3M double sided tape (provided), followed by a push and twist of the smoke alarm into the mounting bracket until a "click" sound is heard.
Be careful if you are using a ladder to install the mounting bracket.
Easy To Reach Test Button
It’ll be a hassle to have to use a ladder every time you want to test the smoke alarms, typically mounted on ceilings. With ours, you just need an extendable pole to reach as the entire surface is the test button.

Again, because of anti-dust design, maintenance is nothing more than wiping/sweeping down its exterior.
Looks Good With Your Decor
Using high quality acrylic and metal, our smoke alarm blends well with your decor. No more unsightly white plastic smoke alarm that you want to hide from view.
Enough said. Look at the comparison yourself.
Peace of Mind That It just Works
Rigorously tested and certified by world’s leading certification body, VdS.
Faster Detection of Smoke
Our smoke alarms are photoelectric sensor based and photoelectric sensors detect smouldering fire, typical of home fires, much faster than ionisation sensors, 4x faster in fact. Remember you only have 3 minutes to escape from a burning house.
Bye To Battery Changes
Because our battery is certified by VdS to last 10 years. In the event of low battery, we do a 1-1 exchange for you.
Strong Anti-Corrosion Property
Ensures sensor operation in optimal condition. Extreme protection against the elements.
Where To Install Smoke Alarms?
The recommended place to install smoke alarms is along your escape route out to the open. After all, the purpose of these alarms is to give you an early alert to fire risks, so that you can escape from the fire. It will be pointless if when the alarms are triggered and you find your escape route already cut off by fire. Click here to get a detailed understanding of recommended places to install smoke alarms.
Regular Testing of Smoke Alarms
It is important to regularly test your smoke alarms. One, so that your family are familiar with the sound of the alarm being triggered off. And two, so that you are assured your smoke alarm is operational, and not just a white elephant on the ceiling.

Bedroom To Ashes in 2 minutes
