These African Innovations Are Fixing These African Issues
A device that prevents fires from tearing through informal settlements and densely populated communities, Lumkani claims to boost community mobilization efforts. Lumkani fire detection is an off-the-shelf fire detection device and alert service that uses radio frequency transmission technology. The device triggers an alarm to alert the family if there’s a fire. Within 20 seconds, a signal sets off heat detectors in a 60-meter radius that should elicit a community-wide response to the fire.
