A smoke detector is a device that detects particles crossing a light beam or electrical current. Once a fire starts, the smoke plume rises to the ceiling and spreads into the chamber of the smoke detector which is one of the reasons a smoke detector should be ceiling mounted. Once the particles interrupt the light beam or electrical current connection between electrodes, the device will go into an alarm state. This will result in the detector sounding, your siren sounding, and the signal transmitting to your monitoring facility. The Monitoring Center will immediately respond to the fire signal by dispatching the fire department and/or following your protection process instructions.
A Heat detector is designed to detect either a rapid rise in temperature or a fixed temperature of 135F. Heat detectors are most commonly used in kitchens, garages or any other location where smoke has a potential to occur on a daily basis. The correct selection and placement of fire devices is critical in the rapid detection of a fire as well as reducing a potential for false alarms. A dual tech device also exists where a smoke detector and heat detector are combined within the same unit.
Easily, fire detectors are the most important non-security devices
