Detecting Smoke With Video Analytics Now Approved In NYC

NYC says OK to detecting smoke via video...I found this to be interesting and new to me anyway...


Do they need a secondary sensor also...like a photoelectric or ionization sensor?

How widely is this accepted in other North American jurisdictions?

At the end of the day its all up to the local AHJ, I would be surprised if any of the Fire Marshals I know would approve this. I would be interested to know if these cameras are cross-listed with other FACPs.

Found this company that sells them, interesting idea but I am skeptical, at this point I wouldnt trust it. http://www.signifire.com/ipcam.html
