From November 2023 the Building Code Acceptable Solutions for Protection from Fire (C/AS1 and C/AS2) will be amended to make interconnected smoke alarms the minimum fire safety system for new built homes and substantial renovations, citing NZS 4514:2021 – Interconnected smoke alarms for Houses.
Welcome to CAVIUS. Since 2004 CAVIUS has inspired the world of alarms, proudly protected homes, and saved lives. The unique, Danish design, combined with a professional UK-based Research & Development team, brings you the most advanced alarms. Why choose CAVIUS? Because the alarms are superior to other standard designs for more than one reason:
The world’s smallest smoke and heat alarms were designed by a Danish team, who are experienced in developing smoke alarm systems to EN54-7 certification.
The CAVIUS alarms use premium components to ensure reliability in performance, stability, and the alarm will be 100% operational during their lifetime of 10 years.
To maintain a high quality performance; CAVIUS invests additional costs in the manufacturing of optical components, amplifiers for the photodiode and a micro controller to carry out signal processing.
The performance of the smoke sensor includes a wide smoke entry in all orientations around the alarm. It also includes strong resistance to false alarms due to point sources of contamination, insects, and humidity. CAVIUS smoke alarms are certified for recreational vehicles.
The software in the CAVIUS smoke alarm includes a fire detection algorithm with features similar to that found in expensive analogue detection systems. The software also includes a calibration routine, which stores a gain factor in flash memory. This is more accurate than the variable resistor set by hand on most other alarms, and much more reliable long term. The software also includes features for self-test, hush mode after alarm, and battery test.
During the manufacturing stage, 100% of all CAVIUS alarms are tested in a smoke tunnel to ensure the right calibration and are checked in an echoic room for sound output test. Samples from each production week are sent to an accredited lab and an external audit company will inspect and test the alarms before shipping them to the retailer. Our factory is audited several times per year from NF, VdS, and ISO.
