Smoke Detector Installation


Residential Smoke Detector Installation

Smoke detectors can be connected directly into the home wiring, powered by a battery, or both. Most smoke detectors work by optical detection or by ionization or both. The benefit of direct wire smoke detectors is that the entire network of smoke detectors can be wired together so that if one detects smoke the alarms will go off on all smoke detectors. Wired in type smoke detectors should always have battery backup in case the network is disconnected from power. The benefit of battery operated smoke detectors is that they can be placed easily where wiring is not available or accessible.

2 Types of Smoke Detectors

Ionization Smoke Alarms:  These type of smoke detectors will quickly warn you if there is a flaming fire present.

Photoelectric Smoke Alarms:  These type of smoke detectors will warn you if there is any type of smoldering fire present.

As a homeowner, it is very important to use both type of alarms to prevent potentially dangerous situations and keep your family safe.

Stay Up To Date On State & Local Smoke Detector Laws

State and local laws regarding smoke detectors in residential homes can vary, but generally require a minimum of one smoke detector on every habitable level of the home, in attics with access and within the vicinity of all bedrooms. Most fire deaths occur in homes lacking smoke detectors, so it is very important not to overlook this as a homeowner.
