It's Time To Get Smart About Smoke Detectors And Protecting Your Family

4/26/2021 (Permalink)

Smart Detection Can Help Limit Fire Damage

One of the keys to protecting your family and your home from fire damage is a smoke detector. In addition to some of the newer long lasting smoke detectors, smart smoke detectors are available. The options, functions and different sensors available is a lot to sort through.

Some models offer a feature allowing you to turn off the alarm from your smart phone whether you are home or away. There are models that have a feature that will turn on some of your lighting to help you and your family get out of the fire. Some detect both smoke and carbon monoxide.

Certain smart smoke detectors can work with other smart systems in your home. The lighting is one example. When choosing a system you should consider if it will work with your current security system. Will the smart smoke detector be compatible with other smart systems already in your home.

Beyond the technology compatibility issues there is the issue of fire detection. Smoke detectors use one of two types of sensors to detect fires. Ionization-type sensors are most useful for detecting fast-burning fires.

Photoelectric sensors are better at warning about smoldering, or slower burning fires. Some smart smoke alarms are designed to pick up both types of fires.
