Phare™ reinvents the most overlooked device in the home - the smoke alarm.
Today’s smoke alarms rely on technology from 1973. As a result, they miss nearly half of all fires, and, when they do go off, it’s a false alarm 3 out of 4 times. Missed fires and false alarms mean that smoke alarms put the very people they claim to protect at risk.
Phare™ uses an array of indoor air quality sensors and machine learning to make double-digit improvements in fire detection accuracy, reducing false alarms by up to 75%. Phare™ makes your home safer, by detecting fires earlier and more accurately, and makes your home healthier, by using air quality sensors to guard against harmful air pollutants.
Phare Labs was founded by RCA graduate Arnau Donate (MA/MSc Global Innovation Design) and LBS graduate Daniel McBride (MBA) to bring safe, healthy air to every single home.
