Abstract [en]

Can you ensure that your smoke detector will sense fire and sound the alarm in the middle of the night?

In 80 percent of the cases where emergency pulls out, smoke detectors are missing where the fire occurred. In the year of 2009, 118 people in Sweden died in fires – most of them would have survived if there had been a functioning smoke detector.

Earlier development of smoke detectors has mainly been focusing on components that sense smoke and alert in case of fire. But in most cases the problem has not been whether the smoke detector was working or not as fully assembled, but rather that it was missing. The smoke detector has in these cases unfortunately been removed because of unwanted alarms in connection with e.g. cooking and therefore been disassembled and forgotten about. Another major problem is the lack of power supply to the smoke detector i.e. the batteries run out and have not been replaced by new ones. Therefore, the project team has put the focus in the users when developing a new smoke detector, Safire, in order to eliminate the causes of having a non-functioning smoke detector at home. Safire is a unique solution that combines high security with simple using. Additionally it has a pleasant design that favors overall impression and enhances safety.

Abstract [sv]

Kan du garantera att din brandvarnare larmar om det börjar brinna inatt?

I 80 procent av de fall där räddningstjänsten rycker ut saknas det brandvarnare i bostaden där branden uppstått. År 2009 omkom 118 personer i Sverige i bränder – merparten av dem hade överlevt om det hade funnits en fungerande brandvarnare.

Tidigare utveckling av brandvarnare har främst inriktats på att förbättra de komponenter som känner av rök och larmar vid brand. Men i de flesta fall har inte problemet legat i huruvida brandvarnaren fungerat eller inte som färdigmonterad, utan snarare att den inte funnits på plats alls. Brandvarnaren har i dessa fall tyvärr övergått till att bli ett irritationsobjekt då den exempelvis har reagerat på oset vid matlagning, tjutit och monterats ned, för att sedan falla bort i glömskan. Ett annat stort problem är att det saknas strömförsörjning till brandvarnaren; batterierna tar slut och man glömmer att sätta i nya.

Därför har projektgruppen arbetat med användaren i fokus vid utvecklingen av en ny brandvarnare, Safire, för att eliminera orsakerna till att man har en icke fungerande brandvarnare i bostaden. Safire är en unik lösning som kombinerar hög säkerhet med enkelt användande. Dessutom har den en snygg design som gynnar helhetsintrycket och förstärker säkerheten.
