Adjustable smoke detecting sensor /switch to run an exhaust fan

I am an asthmatic. My bride of many years is a smoker and i made one of the rooms in our house a smoking room with a good size exhaust fan for her. This works fairly well except the fan pretty much runs continually. Winter is upon us and we live in Buffalo NY. I can see the money going out the fan hole. Is there any kind of a smoke detection sensor/switch that will turn the fan on when needed and off when not?

Look at installing a timer switch. She can then leave it on for 1 hour after she's done.
