FlareSafe Portable Smoke Detector


FlareSafe is a fantastic piece of travel gear to keep you safe from fire risk when travelling. The FlareSafe is a portable smoke detector with inbuilt alarm, an SOS personal attack alarm and an LED Flashlight all in one lightweight, water-resistant and shockproof unit. 

So how does it work?

Smoke detector

FlareSafe uses a specially designed optical system to look for smoke. To arm FlareSafe, simply twist the tough plastic cap at the back-end of the unit. This pops up exposing the detector. At the same time, you’ll hear a single BEEP sound – that tells you the unit is armed. If smoke enters the detector, the piercing siren sounds and the flashlight automatically turns on. This allows you to locate FlareSafe and use it to find your way to safety.


FlareSafe uses four white LED bulbs, which are robust, long lasting and energy-efficient. Its three working settings are (approx battery life in brackets): full beam (10hrs), half beam (50hrs), and strobe to signal distress (100hrs). To turn it on, simply push the front orange button – each push cycles the torch through to the next setting. If the flashlight is on any one setting for more than five seconds, the next push turns it off.

Attack alarm

If you find yourself in a position where you need to alert others, simply push down on the two body buttons. The piercing 110dB personal attack alarm will sound, and at the same time the light will start flashing – this provides an audible and visual sign of distress. The rear button also provides a useful locating device, or "SoundFlare". If you wish to sound the unit to let someone see/hear where you are, then simply hold down the rear button. The alarm will sound and the torch light will strobe for as long as the button is held down

The unit is powered by 1.5V AA alkaline batteries but also has a 3V lithium battery which acts as a back up for the emergency functions if the AA batteries are exhausted. All batteries are included.

Dimensions: 14cm length x 4.5cm diam
