Are they any good? How are they different from Rosco foggers? Do they set off smoke detectors?

Thanks.

A modern hazer uses much the same glycol-based fluid, and functions internally in a similar manner, to a fogger. The difference being that a hazer outputs a constant light stream of 'smoke' and a fogger does it in heavy bursts. It's far easier to keep a consistent and even level of haze with a hazer.

Oh they do - ended up setting off an alarm in a Junior High school with one durring an event while there were kids in classes. Had lots of fun explaining that one to the administration.
