Smoke Detectors are essential for any complete alarm system. This smoke alarm can detect and signal the presence of smoke in the air. This makes us aware of the risk of fire in your home or business. Before going off, our Smoke Detectors sends a signal to our Alarm Receiving Centre, where it is assessed and checked before emergency services are notified. If a fire hazard is identified, our staff will contact you to inform you of the situation and possible solutions.
More About Smoke Detectors For Home Security
Types of Smoke Detectors And How They Work
There are three primary types of smoke detectors: photoelectric, ionization, and combo. Each type has its own unique way of detecting smoke.
Photoelectric Smoke Detectors
These detectors use a light sensor to detect the presence of smoke. When smoke enters the detector, it reflects off the internal mirror and breaks the beam of light. This causes the light sensor to activate, which then triggers the alarm.
Ionization Smoke Detectors
These detectors use a small amount of radioactive material to ionize the air. When smoke enters the detector, it disrupts the flow of ions and sets off the alarm.
Combo Smoke Detectors
Some detectors are combo detectors, which means they use both ionization and photoelectric technology. Ionization detects the smoke while photoelectric detection makes sure no light is being reflected by any objects in its path to the sensor.
Importance of Smoke Detector
