Nearly 2 million out of a total of 22 million
vehicles are broken into or stolen every year. Most of these
crimes are not immediately detected because even if a siren
is triggered this is usually ignored.
Pea Soup Ltd. have the solution - physical
prevention of theft.
Our in-car fog security system is a compact
unit with an emphasis on both user and installer friendliness.
The unit is 12 volt DC car battery powered.
The small size (154mm in length x 43mm in height
x 60mm in depth) allows it to be housed far more easily in
small spaces such as under car seats or even suspended in
either the passenger or drivers footwell. The most important
consideration in locating the unit is to optimise the fog
In standby the unit draws no current whatsoever.
The main feature of the system is that, on activation, it
reaches operating temperature in less than three seconds and
then immediately produces impressive volumes of fog.
The unit uses a coiled, stainless steel heat
exchanger and a microprocessor control circuit with in-built
safety features to prevent discharge in a moving vehicle.
The specially formulated smoke fluid is now contained in a
pressurised aerosol that can be located up to 2 metres from
the Control Unit.
The unit has an integral timer allowing the
installer to regulate, at the touch of a button, the amount
of fog discharged. It also has the facility to trigger a pager
and/or siren and/or voice module as well as remote arming/disarming.
There are both positive and negative trigger
inputs that can be linked to an existing alarm system or other
sensors including door pin switches, ultra-sonic and/or microwave
etc. By using the various optional extras the unit can also
be used without need for another alarm.
The fog is totally harmless to both person
and property but is extremely unpleasant to remain in. The
intruder will make a hasty retreat and most certainly will
not be able to see to steal or cause damage.
The unit can be used in vehicles of varying sizes by regulating
the flow of fog. In this way you can generate the volume of
fog necessary to cater for the size of the area being protected.
The length of each fog activation will determine
the number of times you can use the system before having to
replace the aerosol (approx. 40 times in a standard sized
car) and there is a low fluid indicator light to ensure the
unit is always ready to work for you.
This system is safe for use not only in motor
vehicles but also in boats, caravans and buildings.
The car fog security system
is ideally suited to car security applications and differs
from alarms and other security devices by physically preventing
thieves from seeing. Not only can nobody
see anything to steal in a car full of thick fog or drive
it for any distance, it also draws attention to the crime
in a way that an alarm could not.
