Eno is a smoke alarm that has a gentle warning before the actual alarm. It warns the user that the smoke amount is increasing. By physically lowering its center piece when smoke is detected, Eno makes it easy to mute. The
warning and alarm sounds have been designed to give an organic and calm sound while still being a clear alarm sound.
Testing sound design on unsuspecting passers.
Four stages: 1. Normal state. 2. Pre-warning, some smoke has been detected and a gentle warning sound rings while yellow light blinks. 3. Muted state. 4. Alarm state, smoke is too thick and user has not reacted/muted.
Tap center piece to mute the alarm in case of false alarm.
Guarding the kitchen.
