Do you wonder what you can do about making your home safe for smoke and fire protection?One of the most overlooked safety devices in your home is a smoke detector.
Smoke detectors are typically housed in a disk-shaped plastic enclosure, but the shape may vary by manufacturer or product line. Most smoke detectors work either by optical detection (photoelectric) or by physical process (ionization), or both methods may be used.
Smoke detector wiring can be powered by a central fire alarm system, which uses a battery backup, or as is the case in many single family detached and multi-family homes, a smoke alarm may be powered only by a single disposable battery.
Smoke detectors are generally placed where they will do the most good. Smoke detectors are life saving devices!They protect you and your family from the dangers of fire by alerting you of the presence of smoke in your home.
