The 3-in-1 Cavius Travel Smoke Alarm is the ultimate travel companion to have with you wherever you go, whether you’re travelling abroad for a holiday or staying overnight for work closer to home. This tiny device, standing tall at just 9cm, gives you peace of mind when it comes to your personal safety and security.
The travel smoke alarm is also a personal attack alarm, movement sensor and bag alarm, all in one unit. With a carabiner clip making it easy to attach to your bag or belt, it can provide protection whether you’re alone or with your family.
Perfect for those travelling the world on a gap year and staying in hostels, visiting countries without the same fire safety regulations we’re accustomed to, or simply just for your son or daughter to take away to university with them. Producing a 90 decibel sound, it’ll always be heard, ensuring you’re either woken up or are able to attract help from those nearby.
Winner of numerous design awards, the Cavius travel alarm is powered by one AA battery for a minimum of five years and is simple to operate.
The Travel Smoke Alarm
Containing an optical sensor, it’s firstly safe to take on an aeroplane with you unlike other smoke alarms on the market. Plus, optical smoke alarms are less prone to false alarms caused by steam and aerosols, making them the more reliable options.
Requiring as much free space as possible around the unit, it works best when suspended from the ceiling using the clip, or lying on its side. This gives it the best chance of smoke entering the chamber to activate, and therefore making you aware of the potential fire.
It’s also suitable for activating alongside the movement alarm, which is ideal for hotel rooms and similar overnight.
The Movement Alarm
Best placed on its side in front of the door (especially when the smoke alarm is activated in unison), this will alert you if any movement is detected within the room or if your bag is moved (when attached). Once initiated, you have 10 seconds to place the alarm before it starts detecting movement, which is perfect just before you leave the room or to have switched on overnight.
If movement occurs, a warning tone will then sound as a warning for three seconds. If movement continues after this period of time, the 90-decibel alarm will then sound, either waking you up, scaring off the intruder, or alerting passers-by.
The alarm will continue to sound for two minutes before then returning to its armed state. However, when the alarm has been activated, the green LED light will flash to show it has activated, meaning you’ll still know if someone entered your room while you were out.
The Personal Attack Alarm
Designed for those moments when you feel you’re in an unsafe situation, simply hold down the main button for two seconds to sound the alarm. Activating the personal attack alarm is often enough to deter or scare off an attacker and will alert others around you that you’re in need of help.
Of course, this function makes it useful to have the Cavius travel alarm with you wherever you go, particularly if you’re out late or by yourself and are after a little extra protection. And best of all, its tiny size means you don’t need to sacrifice any valuable bag space for it.
