    Default Smoke or Heat Detector?

    A colleague of mine found this detector during a fire audit and we're having trouble identifying whether it's a heat or smoke detector. It's shape and appearance looks like that of a conventional local smoke detector, minus the inlets for smoke. Given it has a metallic centre (which also looks like an alarm test button) I'm inclined to call it a mechanical heat detector. Any thoughts?

    It is a Vanguard heat detector

    You wind it up and hope it works!!!!!

    They use to charge about $ 500 a piece using scare tactics

    Looks like a vintage heat detector to me
