CAVIUS is a Danish smoke alarm company that was formed in 2004. The Company created the worlds smallest smoke alarm, using photoelectric technology and a 10 year battery which was release globally in 2008. Since then it has gone on to expand its range of products but has always produced the worlds smallest smoke alarms in their class. CAVIUS has distribution partners around the world.  


CAVIUS has been available in Australia since 2017 with its Nano Range of 10-year battery operated photoelectric smoke alarms though an appointed distribution network. However, with the introduction of the new Queensland Smoke Alarm legislation, in 2019, CAVIUS Australia Ltd established its own base for warehousing and distribution in Brisbane and extended its product offering to the new Wireless Family range of alarms.

Our Danish beginnings

In 2004, CAVIUS founder Glenn Hojmose left his job as an industrial designer in Denmark to start his lifelong pursuit of the most advanced, aesthetically pleasing alarms – through a combination of state of the art electronics and superior product design. He was quickly joined by a world-class team of designers, engineers, researchers and project managers, who together bring the CAVIUS product range to life.
