If a fire breaks out in your home or business, time is of the essence. A smoke detection system or smoke alarm can buy you those crucial extra minutes needed to evacuate your house, offices and residential buildings.
How smoke detectors work
In smoke alarms, smoke is detected either by optical detection or by a physical process known as ionisation, or by a combination of both methods. In public buildings and offices smoke detection is usually linked to a central fire alarm system with a battery backup. In individual houses, the smoke alarm itself emits a loud noise. It can also incorporate a visual alarm and is either powered by a single disposable battery or, increasingly, is hardwired into the electrical circuit with battery backup.
