Different types of battery-operated smoke detectors
There are two basic types of passive battery-operated smoke detectors available on the market: ionisation (physical process) and photoelectric (optical). You can also use a dual-sensor smoke alarm which is known for maximum protection from both fast flaming and slow smouldering fires.
A photoelectric detector can sense a sudden scattering of light when smoke enters the detector chamber and that in turn triggers the alarm. These detectors can respond an average of 15 to 50 minutes faster to fire in its early, smouldering stage before the eventual breakout of flames. You can install these detectors near kitchens.
Coming to battery-operated ionisation detectors, they are highly sensitive to small smoke particles and can respond in about 30 to 90 seconds faster to fast-flaming fires than its counterpart photoelectric detectors, but not to smouldering fires. These detectors may set off easily if they are installed too close to garages or kitchens. Ionisation alarms carry a small amount of radioactive material between two electrically charged plates, which ionises the air and causes current to flow between the plates.
Consider installing an appropriate type of detector to avoid them being disabled because dust or condensation sets them off falsely.
Which type of detector should I install?
If you do not have any type of heat or smoke detector installed at your premises till now, it is ideal that you install both types of detectors. You can contact our team members at Cease Fire Solutions and we can help you identify where should you install the detectors and what type of detectors should be installed. We have the knowledge and expertise to resolve all smoke and heat detector-related queries you may have. Speak with our team members for further details.
Why should you choose battery-operated detectors?
Most detectors that we offer at Cease Fire Solutions are powered by batteries. You may ask why should you choose a battery-operated detector over an electrical detector. Well, here’s the answer, heat and smoke detectors, in general, don't use a lot of power and batteries as a power source can last up to a year. Replacing the batteries is also easy and our team can take care of it at a time of your convenience. Another reason for using battery-operated detectors is, they are low maintenance and do not require any type of wiring during installation.
