Types of Smoke Alarm Detectors

Photoelectric smoke Detectors

The photoelectric smoke detector has a light source that shines into a light-sensitive detection area. The light source gets calibrated at a specific wavelength, and if smoke enters the room, it will affect the ability of this type of detector to detect and respond if a fire starts. In other words, photoelectric smoke alarms can alert you to smoke before you see it or know it's there!

Ionic Smoke Detectors

Ionising smoke detectors have the most advanced signal processing, preventing nuisance alarms. The ionisation alarms sense heat rather than the visible light of a flame. The ionisation sensors detect invisible combustion particles, often reaching fires before they have become large enough to produce much smoke. Their greatest strength of these ionisation smoke alarms is in fast, hard-to-detect fires, where they excel at early detection of slowly developing and smouldering fires with little visible or sensing smoke.
