Some students and young graduates from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have developed an amazing fire detector.
In a short documentary on the device sighted by YEN.com.gh on the YouTube channel of Citi News, the leader of the group called Stephen Boakye Frimpong indicated that the gadget is called a Smart Fire Alert.
The device is mounted at vantage points in facilities so that it is able to get access to smoke whenever there is an incident of fire in the structure.
Upon detecting smoke, the gadget sends a text message about the fire outbreak to a number it is pre-programmed with and also calls the number.
If there is no answer, the smart fire alert goes ahead to call a maximum of five other phone numbers which are all pre-set in its programming depending on the number of owners of the facility.
Simultaneously, the device which has been tested by the Ghana Standards Authority also sounds a loud alarm and never stops until the fire is doused or put off.
