LintAlert is an alarm system that attaches directly to the dryer hose and detects blockages throughout the dryer vent to warn and ultimately help prevent dryer fires.

With regular use, lint makes it past the initial door filter and collects in a dryer's exhaust system. This blockage causes longer drying times, uses more energy, and causes excess wear on clothing. While running, the blockage is heated by the dryer's elements and is the leading cause of dryer fires.

The lint alert system uses an LED indicator light system and an alarm to alert the user of blockage percentages. The alarm sounds once the system is 60% blocked alerting that a dryer vent cleaning is necessary.
