when fire breaks out, the conventional Exit plate can not detect the origin of the fire and can not show safe running directions for people. The newly designed smoke -detecting Exit plate can detect the origin of the fire and the intensity of the smoke and show multiple safe directions people can move to and increase people's chances of successfully escaping the fire and smoke. Green light on the Exit plate indicates there is less smoke on this side and this is the safe direction for escape. Red light on the Exit plate indicates there is much smoke on this side and people should not move in this direction.
