A smoke detector includes processing circuitry coupled to a camera. The field of view of the camera contains one or more targets, each having spatial indicia thereon. The processing circuitry collects a sequence of spatial frequency measures, such as contrast indicating parameters. Members of the sequence can be compared to at least one reference spatial frequency measure to establish the presence of smoke between the target and the camera.
