Fires can happen in the middle of the night. If you want to protect your family, then you need to install smoke detectors in every room of your home. This will ensure that everyone who hears the alarm can act and inform the others as well. Many times, fire camera located too near the kitchen causes false alarms since there is sometimes smoke coming out of the cooking pan. Fire detectors are best placed in every floor of you home but don’t put them in a place where it is easily triggered by other things.

Aside from installing cctv fire alarm, you should also have fire extinguishers in key locations in your home. Also remember that you need emergency lighting in case electricity is disrupted by the fire or if electricity is the source of the fire.

There are many different fire alarms that can be purchased in the market. You can use a dual sensor smoke alarm. Single sensor alarms can detect a certain type of fire. Dual alarms are highly recommended since they cover many types of situations.

If you are selecting a single or dual fire alarm, just make sure that they are working properly. You need to make sure that you inspect its battery at least twice a year. If you develop a system for replacing batteries then this ensures that your fire alarm is working properly. It is very important since this ensues that your fire alarm system covers your home adequately. You can schedule battery replacement at an annual event such as during a birthday, anniversary or any activity that you do once a year.

In dual smoke detectors, there are two primary parts. There is an ionization sensor and a photoelectric sensor. The photoelectric sensor can detect smoldering smoke fires like that which comes from foam furniture, carpets or curtains. The ionization sensor can detect grease fires which are combustible. These two technologies are combined to cover both smoke and fire conditions.

In photoelectric sensor uses a photoelectric beam which detects the presence of smoke and fire when beam is interrupted. The alarm is then activated. The beam is generated by a simple diode which can be interpreted by the sensor. This sensor can sense the disturbance of particles in the air. The sensor then picks this up and sends a command triggering the alarm to sound.

In ionization smoke alarms, radioactive materials are used to create a conductive chamber. When the air is filled with smoke, the conductivity in the chambers change, and this triggers the alarm. The amount of radioactive materials in these dual sensor smoke and fire alarms in very small. But, even then, they should still be handled with care.
