timed smoke disperser


Explanation:
Just to get the ball rolling - I don't know (and don't have time to check) if there is an industry-specific term. Smoke disperser does definitely exist though and timed as an adjective is quite self-explanatory.

However it seems to be a gadget of sorts based on the principle of "what the eye can't see, the eye can't steal".

Once a burglary is detected, this gadget lets off (disperses) smoke so the intruder can't see what's before him in the room.

Hope it helps

Postgrading: no probs - if anyone has a text on alarms, this may assist anyhow. Mariette's translation is right (for the product, although it may be a brand name). The English just focuses on the cloak formed by the dispersed smoke, whilst the Dutch focuses on the timing aspect after the intruder breaks in.

Thanks Debs, but this is technical. I have translated it as "smoke chamber". Its part of a fire place exhaust system.

Sorry. How do you get to the cloak. "klok" is usually watch or bell in Dutch.
