In the event of fire, it is very important to know how to get to the exit door quickly. However, it is not always safe to open that door because you don’t know whether or not there is smoke and/or fire on the other side. This exit door includes a smoke detector with a guiding light. The light changes color to warn people not to enter when the smoke on the other side is too thick and stays brightly lit for 180 seconds to indicate the right direction to go to find an alternate exit.
