What about this video? It doesn’t feature any actual devices unless you count Seymour Smoke (who of course is fictional).
Seymour Smoke says “I hate smoke so whenever I see or smell it I make this noise to warn you.”
Can a smell actually set off a smoke detector? I don’t think smoke detectors can detect smells.
You guys take things a bit too seriously, be cool about fire safety!
You’d technically be right, they technically can’t.
Semour doesn’t sound like a typically smoke detector. The noise he makes is not a code 3 beeping noise.
I’d say he sounds closest to a “Brass Squealer” smoke alarm, which used mechanical horns rather than electronic horns like today’s units.
That’s because this was made 3 Months prior to Code 3 being added to NFPA 72. It was not required when this was made.
I’m pretty sure there’s never been a squealer horn smoke alarm that did Temporal Code 3, though even for a while electronic horn smoke alarms did either 4/6 or 5/6 instead of Temporal 3 (though squealer horn smoke alarms I believe were pretty much completely obsolete by the time of “Be Cool About Fire Safety”, making Seymour technically not period-correct in terms of what smoke alarms sounded like then).
Hehe, that’s good trivia to know!
The funnier part is that this is how like 85% of gen. pop. see the fire alarm, as a nuisance alarm and as a source of pranking the apartment complex.
