Canary / Energetic Smoke Detector

Canary
Canary

Canary, the Energetic Smoke Detector, is an innovative design applying wind and light to conduct electricity and recharge itself. The energy sources are derived from the lamps and fans among our general living environment. You can set up the Canary around the fluorescent lamp or the fan outlet. The Canary could not only offer self-recharging but also power the warning signals when the fire accidence happen!
There are two types of Canaries. One is a photovoltaic based device. It is set up close to lamps for energy acquiring. The other is an air current based device. It can be installed around a fan outlet to access energy.
