Cig-Arrête® detectors for vehicles

The tobacco smoke detector is NOT suitable for installation into motor vehicles as it will detect even the very lightest engine emissions.

The flame detector (CSA-FOV) is suitable for motor vehicles as it will detect naked flames such as matches and lighters, however it will NOT detect vehicle electric cigar/cigarette lighters.

The match/lighter flame detector incorporates technology designed to detect a flame from a match or cigarette lighter. Normally this would trigger the voice alarm to deter the smoker from continuing to smoke. In a vehicle cab this would probably be undesirable as it may distract the driver, but it could also encourage the driver to mask the detector.


The flame detector has an SD card that registers each activation, these can then be downloaded onto a laptop or PC. The SD card is accessed by unlocking the battery compartment, therefore preventing unauthorised tampering.

The units are powered by long life alkaline batteries, that should last over a year (depending on the number of activations).

The detectors contain a Windows® based file structure allowing simple drag-and-drop file copying for ease of programming.

An anti-vandal cage can also be fitted.
