Smart Smoke Alarm

The invention relates to sensors and more specifically to a smart alarm that uses mathematical algorithms to detect fires more rapidly than conventional smoke alarms and to discriminate against conditions that would lead to false alarms. The alarm utilizes one or more sensors and intelligently integrates the information based upon training data from historical tests and determines in real time whether an alarm should be sounded. Multiple alarms could be generated, depending upon the categories chosen and the nature of the conditions at each moment. Provision is also made for toxic-gas (carbon monoxide) alerting. The system components are inexpensive and consume low power, allowing design of units that are suitable for residential use
