12V DC Car Security Smoke Screen

Introducing the SecuriSmoke 12V DC Smoke Screen - physical prevention of theft.

The 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.

The small size (160mm length x 75mm height x 100mm wide) 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 1.5mA. On activation it reaches operating temperature in just one second 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 special heater coil and a microprocessor control circuit with in-built safety features including a thermal cut-out. The specially formulated high concentrated smoke fluid for optimum heat efficiency is contained in a container from where it is pumped into the heater coil inside the control unit.

The unit has the ability to discharge smoke for up to 25 minutes. It also has a test button to trigger smoke production. Optional wireless remote control is also available for show vehicles.

The unit's trigger input is activated via a simple closing contact circuit linked from your existing vehicle 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. A full tank (250ml) should provide around 25 minutes of total smoke production. It is simple to observe the fluid level through the translucent tank 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. Some 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How big a volume will this unit fill?

A: The single 12v unit is designed for vans. For larger vehicles such as trucks, we recommend the 24v Turbo unit which produces 9 times the volume of smoke. If you need a mains powered unit that will fill a larger area, visit our mains powered smoke security page.

Q: Can you supply aerosols that kill the thief by gassing them?

A: No. It would be unsafe for both you and the fitter of the unit and would open up a whole range of legal issues. Our unit sets out to prevent theft, not deliver justice!

Q: Can the unit be triggered by the driver if they are at a set of traffic lights and a thief forces them out of the car and drives off (carjacking)?

A: No. It would not be safe for any nearby pedestrians if the car was driven at speed whilst full of smoke. If the unit is located to secure cargo on a lorry for example, you can yourself fit a panic button to trigger the smoke screen manually.
