Burlington, NC – June 19, 2024 –

Forge Technologies is excited to announce the introduction of Eye Detekt, the groundbreaking product designed to instantly detect small flames in homes. We are also thrilled to have the first products now in inventory.

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), while 96% of American homes have smoke alarms, thousands of individuals are still injured or killed in home fires each year.

“Understanding the root cause of these incidents is key to preventing them,” says John Andres, inventor of Eye Detekt.

Smoke alarms are essential but often neglected or placed in areas prone to false alarms, such as kitchens and bathrooms.

“Smoke alarms tend to be out of sight, out of mind,” says Andres. “People often interact with them only when the battery needs replacing, leading to the batteries being removed during false alarms, leaving families unprotected. We aimed to design a product that responds to fire faster than any existing product and eliminates false alarms, ensuring regular interaction and reliability.”

“We see the home as having two distinct spaces,” added Andres. “Those where flames should never be, like bedrooms and laundry rooms, and those where flames are part of the living experience, like kitchens and living rooms.”

Our first product aims directly at adding a layer of safety in all the spaces in the home where you would never want a flame.  Think about children’s bedrooms, playrooms, offices, laundry rooms and garages to name a few.

With over 100 years of combined experience in fire detection product design, the engineers at Forge Technologies have developed Eye Detekt to meet these needs.

Eye Detekt constantly monitors for fire and immediately alerts you upon flame detection. It is ideal for children’s bedrooms and any space where flames should never be present.

“At Forge, we aim to disrupt the fire detection industry. Real change doesn’t come from minor improvements to outdated technology but from pursuing radical innovations that change how we think about home fire safety and significantly impact saving property and lives,” says John Andres, inventor of Eye Detekt.

When dealing with fire, seconds truly count. Modern homes are filled with combustible materials, reducing escape times to less than three minutes. Eye Detekt provides instantaneous flame detection, offering faster reaction times than any other product on the market. It also features a beautifully designed product that runs on common batteries for over a year.
