What Is The Difference Between Smoke and Fog?

By understanding the difference between a smoke machine and a fog machine, you can understand why fog machines are such an asset to the security of your home or business.

Imagine a late night in a pub or club, as the music comes on and the dance floor begins to fill with dancers of varying talents... the floor is filled with smoke, to add to the affect and excitement. This is a smoke machine. Think ‘Stars in Their Eyes’ and “Tonight Matthew, I Will Be...”- this is a smoke machine.

This makes the great effect of a smoke screen that often covers your feet, but you can still see through it and enjoy the night dancing with others.

However a fog machine offers a much thicker and denser layer of fog. It is often the same liquid that is used in a smoke machine, but it is mixed with less water to offer a thicker effect. A fog machine provides a thick, low-hanging fog that doesn’t settle on the ground like smoke from a smoke machine might. 

This means that everything in your home or business is hidden behind this cloak of fog so a potential thief would not be able to your valuables and therefore they are unable to steal them.

If you are looking to create the perfect party effect at your next big event then a smoke machine is well worth considering. However, if you are looking for an extra level of security to protect your valuables then a fog machine is recommended.
